God’s Wrath Poured Out on Satan-Infiltrated GOP?

I can’t understand why the only people who have been saying that God is judging the Republican party by throwing hurricane Isaac at their convention in recent days are people who are parodying conservative Christians’ typical rhetoric. Where are the actual conservative Evangelical Protestant Christians who are willing to at least try to give an [Read More...]

“Jesus Taught Generosity and Charity, Not Government Assistance”

I've heard this claim a lot lately, and it seems to me bizarre, particularly when it focuses on an example like the Good Samaritan. A friend actually told me recently that the Good Samaritan didn't rely on the government to take care of the man, appealing to that as if it were an argument against [Read More...]

The attitude of those mentioned in or interviewed for the article seems to be “anyone but Obama.” They would prefer a “big government Republican” to a “big government Democrat.” They would prefer a Mormon and a person with a history of infidelity [Read More...]

Iowa as Trekkie-Detector

If you mention Iowa to the average person, particularly at the moment, and they will probably think of this… If you mention Iowa to a Trekkie, the first thing that they will probably think of is this… HT Marc Cortez for the second image. [Read more...]

Antidisestablishmentarianism (From the Archives)

OK, although it proves I’m a nerd (as if any of you had any doubts) I will come right out and admit it: ever since I was a child and first learned about the longest word in the dictionary I have been eagerly awaiting an opportunity to use it in a sentence. I suppose that [Read More...]
