Today at work, I’ve already been in the toilet 6 times to cry, and shout at myself, pushing myself to make it through the day.
You’re a stupid cunt; You’re a bastard. You dickhead fascist crackpot; keep going off in my head like a car alarm in the dead of night.
Clarence Darrow, “Scopes Trial” courtroom speech, July 13, 1925
Before anyone takes offense to the use of word fagot, please note that a fagot is a bundle of twigs and sticks often used as fuel to set things on fire; namely people in the 16th century.
With that cleared up, how sad it is that 87 years of scientific advancement have occurred since Darrow spoke those words and we’re still dealing with school boards trying to add Biblical creationism and exclude evolution from curricula. How incredibly depressing.(via nonplussedbyreligion)
Relevant today. Which depresses me.
