Church Rock Concert
Police Shut Down Church Rock Concert

It will be called persecution. Just wait. Police in Albany, New York broke up a rock concert at Trinity Methodist Church and summoned the pastor to court for running an illegal nightclub. Seems the church youth group was taking donations at the door which the police viewed as a cover charge. "An organ concert is a church event. This is not a church event," stated the highly discerning police chief. The church youth music nights, called New Age Cabaret, includes bands like Drown Retarded Children and Clitorture (which has a lovely song called "Why Won't Jesus Die" that starts like this: ---
<span style="color:#FF0000">"Why won't Jesus [expletive] die? Hopelessly turning the pages, the good book of lies. Your moral guide to a self-righteous life. Knees pounded into the dirt, free will has died. In the palm of God's hands, you're wasting your life. Slaughter the lamb. Worship the goat. Pry the Lord's hands away from your throat. Before I pray, I'll slit my own wrists. Religion of hate, to each his own scorn. All these years of worship have left you with nothing.<span style="color:#FF0000">" :o yikes

Wow, that's some theology. John Wesley would be real impressed.

At NASA, it really is rocket science, and the decision makers really are rocket scientists.
But a body of research that is getting more and more attention points to the ways that smart people working collectively can be dumber than the sum of their parts. .. Irwin Janis? &Groupthink:& is a mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' striving for unanimity override realistic appraisals ? It is the triumph of concurrence over good sense, and authority over expertise.&
