Steven Grant argues that the Tea Party "movement was detailed in the Bible." I kid you not. PZ Myers scoffs:

Yeah, this is the fourth Tea Party movement: the first was after the death of Solomon, the second was led by Jesus Christ himself, the third was the Boston event, and the fourth was begun by a ranting overprivileged ass on the Chicago stock exchange, which makes Rick Santelli some kind of prophet, apparently.

Tony Woodlief - understandably - wonders if orthodox Christianity in the West may have jumped the shark. The news from Poland does not suggest optimism; it reflects what will, I fear, at some point be regarded as the catastrophic papacy of Benedict XVI with respect to Europe's faith.
