very, very strange.... heard about this today on campus @ K State, people tried to tell me about the "evil Christians" ...

but I was more interested in our new football coach. I know I shouldn't sound cynical, but I'm so used to these sorts of things being..not quite what they appear.

anyhow, hope he's not seriously injured.

The man's a liar.

He bought one of those Clapper thingies to turn his lights on and off and one night, while returning home from grocery shopping, he opened the door, the Clapper turned the lights on, he dropped a can of Pork&Beans, the lights went off, he tripped over the fallen can, spilled the rest of his groceries, and the Clapper turned the lights back on.

He's just too proud to admit it.

It just goes to show ya that in this country we have free speech but you still have to pay for the consequences.

"I’m mostly shaken up, and I got some bruises and sore spots," he said.

Much better than being beheaded.

"Hospitalized" usually means admitted to a hospital (implying a life-theatening injury). "Treated and released" is something entirely different.

For starters, it looks like the reporter jimmied the story with the "hospitalized" title.

Did he drive to the hospital, or was he founded helpless by a passerby?

My guess is that this has nothing to do with his anti-Christian remarks. More likely, it has something to do with a personal relationship.

Whatever Mirecki got wasn't bad enough.

I'm with you. I think this was staged for sympathy or to malign Creationists.

However... in an Islamofascist culture, this guy would have been publicly filleted for heresy. MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN CREATION. Praise God our founders believed in "Freedom" OF (not FROM) religion.

Well, in the last 30 minutes the story's been picked up by the majors. The MSM seems to be jumping on this like the leftists here on the thread--but they couch everything in "he said", so I'm thinking they're doubting as they're writing.

Wonder if there'll be an interview of our victim-of-the-day on O'Reilly--Oprah?

If this is anything like the usual leftist "attack", he probably fell down the stairs at home and decided to make up a "hate crime" to go along with his bruises.

Oh, come on. Why is everyone being so grave and reserved? Doesn't anyone see the irony in this smart@$$ getting a "nice slap in [his] big fat face"?

One of 2 things happened here

A. He was beaten up by someone who had another agenda with him but used this as an excuse or attempt to steer guilt away from themselves

or

B. He got someone to beat him up so he could use this as a PR ploy.

My beg is, it's the latter.

[The sheriff’s department is looking for the suspects, described as two white males between ages 30 and 40, one wearing a red visor and wool gloves, and both wearing jeans. They were last seen in a large pickup truck.]


I would be willing to believe that the assailants were Christian fundamentalists angry at him for his public statements about them, except that the description doesn't fit what we all know about the Christian fundamentalists.

They would be described as "two white males with slack jaws and an insane look in their eyes, both wearing suits and ties, and carrying briefcases full of Bibles and anti-science literature, driving a pickup truck with a gun rack and a fish emblem and a 'Bush/Cheney' bumper sticker". And while they were beating him they would be yelling 'Let God sort it out!'.

I hope I don't need the sarcasm tag.

Must have been Behe and Dembski dressed in Bubba.

Color me dubious but if he did get a beating the perps go to jail.

The man staged this whole thing. No one beat him up. The state police need to investigate it on the basis that it was a false report.
