Arkansas Mayor: Pray for Unknown Victims of Local Tragedy; “God Will Know Who You Are Talking About”

Last night, there was an explosion at an industrial plant in Arkansas. The fire is still burning and two people have been sent to a local hospital to treat their injuries.

I wish them a speedy and full recovery, and I hope no one else suffered from the blast. The only reason I’m posting this at all is because of the odd statement made by Camden Mayor Marie Trisollini: She probably wanted to say the thoughts and prayers of everyone in the city are with the injured.

But since the victims haven’t been identified publicly, she realized those prayers couldn’t be directed anywhere. No worries, though, she wrote on Facebook:

There Are Now More Non-Religious People in England and Wales Than All Christians Combined

In a stunning analysis of the religious demographics in England and Wales (but not Scotland and Northern Ireland), Professor Stephen Bullivant of St Mary’s Catholic University in Twickenham found that the percentage of non-religious people has nearly doubled from just a few years ago.

In 2011, 25% of people in England/Wales considered themselves non-religious. By 2014, the latest year for which he had data, Bullivant found that number had skyrocketed to 48.5%.

There are now more people in those areas without religion than there are all Christians combined.

By now, you’ve surely seen the video of Candace Payne trying on an electronic Chewbacca mask. The more she laughs, the more we hear the Wookiee noises, and the cycle continues until even the viewers are laughing along with her.

The video, which she streamed live on Facebook with her phone last week, already has about 140 million views as of this writing. It led to a writeup in the New York Times and appearances on several news programs over the past few days.

Given the fleeting nature of viral fame, is there anything else can she do with her 15 minutes?
