Victoria Jackson Says Newtown Shootings Happened Because We Abandoned the Ten Commandments

victoria-jackson-newtown-shootings

Comedian and former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson is a Christian and a vocal right-wing activist. While the country was reacting to the horrific murders of 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday (a figure which included 20 kindergarteners), Jackson chose to focus on anger instead of compassion. She went on Facebook to rant about what she saw as the real cause of the shootings - not a troubled young man, but a country who doesn't love God enough: My friend Jim Riley posted: … [Read more...]

Dear Brett Ratner, You Cannot Just Go Around Putting Mezzuzahs on Peoples’ Doors

brett-ratner-mezzuzahs

Director and producer Brett Ratner, who has made movies like the Rush Hour franchise and X Men: The Last Stand, is apparently not satisfied with the level of Jewishness in Hollywood. (No one has ever had that sentiment before, btw.) The Hollywood Reporter, er, reports that Ratner was going to a meeting at the United Talent Agency offices in Los Angeles when he randomly started putting mezzuzahs on the doors of two agents, the possibly-Jewish-sounding Blair Kohan and Jeremy Zimmer. Mezzuzahs are … [Read more...]

Russell Brand Interviewed Members of the Westboro Baptist Church

Two members of the Westboro Baptist Church - aka, the people who like to show up at military funerals with "God Hates Fags" signs - appeared on Russell Brand's new talk show. Brand (who was wearing a necklace with a bunch of small crosses on it) was exceedingly fair, giving the guys a chance to talk about their views and their faith even though the audience clearly wanted nothing to do with them. I go back and forth on whether I think Brand is funny and I'm really glad that he and Katy Perry … [Read more...]

Mecca is the holiest city in Islam, so it makes total sense that Paris Hilton would go there. Or not.Although Mecca is a sacred, it's also a place where people live, work, and shop. There's a mall there, Makkah Mall, that is right next to the Grand Mosque. It houses everything from a Children's Place to a Burger King, but when Paris Hilton announced that she was opening one of her handbag stores there, people went crazy. Some called for a ban, saying that Hilton's connections to drugs and … [Read more...]

Fergie Stopped Doing Drugs After Talking to God About It

fergie-earmuffs

Before she was a superstar, Fergie was a meth addict. The singer grew increasingly gaunt and paranoid and left the girl group she was part of at the time, Wild Orchid. One day, while high, she wandered into a church and then became convinced that the FBI was outside waiting to arrest her. So I had a conversation with God... and I said, 'Alright, if I go out there and the FBI and the SWAT team’s not out there, then it's the drugs and I'm stopping.'  I went outside of the church... and there was n … [Read more...]

At some point, Creed frontman Scott Stapp must have realized he was in the worst band on earth, because he tried to commit suicide. But he had a "guardian angel" - rapper T.I. (Okay, fine, sorry, I'm not making a suicide joke.)"I had met T.I. back in 2004, we were both writing songs for The Passion of The Christ: Songs Inspired By soundtrack and we had briefly interacted there and knew what each other looked like," Stapp wrote in his new memoir,Sinner's Creed. "We'd talked about being fans … [Read more...]

lark-voorhies

Lark Voorhies, better known to a generation as Lisa Turtle from Saved By the Bell, has stayed out of the spotlight in the last few years even as her former coworkers continue to get work. One of the reasons she has kept a low profile might be that she's dealing with bipolar disorder. That's a claim made by none other than Lark's own mom, who says that Lark often stares off into space and talks to herself. Lark denies the claim, saying that in such moments she's actually praying."I have a … [Read more...]
