Christian Jihad Watch: Pickup Truck Thugs Assault Professor In Kansas

You might not want to almost teach a college course that challenges Christian fundamentalism, and creation and intelligent design theories. Paul Mirecki, a religious studies professor at the University of Kansas found out the hard way, when he was waylaid on a country road, beaten, and abandoned by a pair of guys in a big pickup truck who'd tailgated him for awhile.

Maybe they were just your typical rednecks, and maybe they didn't know anything about the college course that was planned, then cancelled by Mirecki. Maybe they did know about it, and maybe that was their excuse. But I've learned that Florida is full of big-pickup driving rednecks, and they don't need an excuse to beat somebody up.
