Because Jihads Are So Effective 

Two causes I pretty fully support are taking positions that could go either way. A congress of Islamic women, who wish to improve womens' lot in the Muslim world, have called for a 'gender jihad.' I cannot see how this is likely to win allies anywhere.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science has joined in another battle, this time against the creationists nitwits Intelligent Design Proponents in Kansas. The AAAS has joined other leading scientific organizations in denying the Kansas Board of (Mis)Education copyright privileges to use standard texts in their curricula. Now, I support this in part, but I don't think it'll work.
