I was browsing through blogs, and found out about this movie…dh and I will be going to see it asap! And its by Ben Stein for those of you who like him 🙂

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

here is just a tidbit from the website under Movie overview:

Ben realizes that he has been “Expelled,” and that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired – for the “crime” of merely believing that there might be evidence of “design” in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance.”

 Update: I did receive a reply to one of the emails I sent regarding this issue, so quickly! He assured me that they are working on fixing it, it has passed the house, and now its in the Senate. So I am praying that it goes through quickly 🙂

Court Drops Case of ‘Peeping Tom’ in Target; Says Victim Was Not in Private Place

A man accused of using a camera to take pictures under the skirt of an unsuspecting 16-year-old girl at a Tulsa store did not commit a crime, a state appeals court has ruled.

here is the article

I wanted to address this article since I heard about it on the local news here in Oklahoma Here is a segment:

In a dissent, Appeals Judge Gary Lumpkin wrote that “what this decision does is state to women who desire to wear dresses that there is no expectation of privacy as to what they have covered with their dress.”

“In other words, it is open season for peeping Toms in public places who want to look under a woman’s dress,” Lumpkin wrote.

He said he found the majority’s finding of no reasonable expectation of privacy “interesting and disturbing.”

My initial question was, just how short was the skirt she was wearing?! But I noticed that the article said he had knelt down to get the pic…so theoretically, she could have been wearing a modest skirt, at least knee length. In fact, this creep could have done the same thing to me or my 3 young daughters and we wear long skirts and dresses! This is a problem even for those of us practicing modesty!

I am appalled the the decision made by the courts, and I pray that the Assistant DA will continue to encourage the legislature, to change the current law. I have done my part and emailed my state representative and state senator. If you are wanting to contact them, check out this link for Oklahoma residents : Oklahoma Legislature Search
