Camille Paglia (Credit: Michael Lionstar) Camille Paglia takes on Jon Stewart, Trump, Sanders: “Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true!” You’re an atheist, and yet I don’t ever see you sneer at religion in the way that the very aggressive atheist class right now often will. What do you make of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and the religion critics who seem not to have respect for religions for faith? I regard them as adolescents.

Why Is the Mainstream Media Running Away From Max Blumenthal’s New Book About Israel?

"Is it possible for right-wingers and AIPAC adherents to speak about his work without either blowing a carotid artery; or attacking him personally, huffing and puffing about his being "anti-Semitic," a self-loathing Jew, an anti-Israeli propagandist, and a bullying anti-Zionist? It doesn't appear it is.[But] Max Blumenthal -- a gutsy award-winning journalist whose on-the-ground reporting often shatters the confabulated wisdom of the Mainstream Media Misinformation and Disinformation Complex -- … [Read more...]

The ones who still represent the majority of evangelicals, the ones I come from." *** So writes Christopher Stroop, PhD, History and Humanities (Stanford University) and Senior Lecturer, S … [Read more...]

At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]
