Reason Rally Pics: Signs & Wonders

Got back from Reason Rally last night, exhausted. Whew! Great event, great time, great inspiration.I took lots and lots of photos. Rather than post them all in one big lump, I've divided them up into five themes: Signs & Wonders, The People of Reason Rally, The Famous & Infamous, The Scene, and The Assholes.I wanted to do this as a slide show, but I don't know how to do that with the interface here at Patheos.

Bear People, Wolf People, People People

I've been thinking about that gorilla that just got shot to death at the Cincinnati Zoo.The outpouring of sympathy for the poor, poor mother who only looked away for a few seconds, the tearful "You people just don't know what it's like being a mother!" is only one of the annoying mass responses.Meanwhile, here's this innocent gorilla, killed with no second thought, the moment a human child plops down in his enclosure.Something I've said on social media: What bothers me is that we're … [Read more...]

We Are SO F*cking Doomed

Saw this pic on Facebook, with the caption do you see jesus? type "amen" if you see him How many typed "amen"? I didn't go through and inspect every single response, but in the looking I did do -- the most recent several hundred responses -- every person typed "amen" or something even more goddy.As of 9:45 p.m. today, the post got 125,177 comments, 310,000 likes, and almost 13,000 shares.Oh, and Donald Trump just won the primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and … [Read more...]
