And it’s always been right in front of our faces.

The cure?  Interstate 35, which runs from Loredo (Texas) to Duluth (Minnesota).

I’ll let Pat Robertson explain, because if I try, I’ll laugh myself silly:

Thanks, Pat.  Thank you for your continued weirdness.

(Ironically, rightwing nutjobs also attribute I-35 as part of the secret government conspiracy to make Mexico, Canada, and the United States into a single nation.  So, I-35 is — depending on which wingnut theory you embrace — an invasion/blessing from God, or a terrible government conspiracy.  Or something).

I stumbled upon this story while reading about another cure for homosexuality, this one from science:

A new study finds that both drugs and genetic manipulation can turn the homosexual behavior of fruit flies on and off within a matter of hours.

"Fruit flies".  Heh.

Anyway, the study should piss off fundies, because it shows that there really is a "gay gene", i.e., homosexuality is "hardwired" into one’s genetic makeup, and can’t be changed by christian "counselling" (or, presumably, by highways either).

On the other hand, once scientists were able to isolate the gene, they were able to mess with it by injecting the flies with certain chemcals.  They were thus able to literally "turn on" and then "turn off" the flies’ homosexuality.  And that news should make fundies pleased.

Of course, to be pleased, the fundies would be required to embrace science first, and the idea of genetic mutation.  Don’t see that happening….

UPDATE:  More on I-35 …from GodTube (that’s the YouTube that God uses)….
