Washington has been pretty weird lately between musings of “global government” and “global currency,” Congress passing the absurd “Cap and Tax” bill, not to mention Sotomayor’s “nunchuck” tutorial, things are quite bizarre. Arguably nothing is more absurd than the President’s army of Czars.

Michelle Malkin in her column this week, Two Scientists, Two Standards, discussed the media’s response to scientists recently appointed by the President, Dr. Francis S. Collins and John Holdren. The media seems to be in a frenzy over a book Dr. Collins wrote about his conversion to Christianity,

“Times writer Gardiner Harris noted that praise for Dr. Francis S. Collins “was not universal or entirely enthusiastic.” The geneticist is causing “unease,” according to the Times, because of “his very public embrace of religion.” Stomachs are apparently churning over a book Collins wrote describing his conversion to Christianity.It’s called — gasp! — “The Language of God.” Harris intoned: “Religion and genetic research have long had a fraught relationship, and some in the field complain about what they see as Dr. Collins’ evangelism.”

While some might find this unabashed Christianity to be just TERRIFYING, something about Czar John Holdren, the new Science Czar, seems much more disturbing and yet the media does not seem to be as frightened.

“Earlier this year, Ben Johnson at the online publication FrontPage Magazine provided quotes shedding light on Holdren’s embrace of “compulsory abortion” for American women “if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society”….”Yet, there was scant mention of Holdren’s stomach-churning proposals during his confirmation hearings in February….Holdren’s planetary regime would also breed out undesirables “who contribute to social deterioration” and “insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption — especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone.”

Is a conviction to Christianity, which Malkin points out a quarter of Americans identify themselves as evangelical Christians, truly more terrifying than a Czar who promotes eugenics, sterilization, and compulsory abortion? What do you think?
