Continuing the Dede Honesty Trend

by Smitty (h/t Samizdata)

Following the revelation of Dede's True Blue colors (NTTAWWT) comes word in the Telegraph that "Climate change belief given same legal status as religion" in a court case where some PHB's inner child was discriminated against for tree-huggery:
An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.
When coupled with some of the latest nitwittery from the UN on the defamation of religion (modulo Judaism and Christianity), we can foresee a future in which Al Gore will damn all of our wallets in court to the tune of copious dollars. Your billfold and mine subjugated to endless torture to pay for our environmental blasphemies.

If this trend of telling it like it is continues, I predict TOTUS will have our president openly curse Adam Smith by the 2010 elections.


  1. The Dede Treachery obviously gave Ownens the ability to put this over the top, but is there any truth to the Althouse piece on the differences between Owens and Hoffman? Was Owens, due to his personal presentation, just perceived as a better candidate to slightly more voters than Hoffman?

  2. Pelosi, we won last night!

    Glad NY-23 was so important to them and the Virginia and New Jersey governorships were not.

  3. So, if a court has ruled that environmentalism is basically a religion... are any laws promoting environmentalism unconstitutional based on the Establishment Clause?

    Note that the court was a UK one, and we haven't fully scuttle the US legal system, though certain invertebrates are working on it.
