Justice Clarence Thomas Tells Graduates Not To Hide Their Faith and To “Thank Your Pastor”

On Friday, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas gave the 2016 commencement address at Hillsdale College in Michigan. It was an uneven performance. The supposedly brilliant jurist didn’t know the difference between demure and demur (8:52), struggled to get the Latin phrase ab initium out of his mouth (14:29), botched a Lincoln quotation (16:43), and was even reduced to pronouncing the word defy three times before he hit pay dirt (20:00).

This Yelling Christian Mother of 12 Leads Her Kids On a Hate Parade Through a Target Store

Not since watching the half-gutbusting, half-terrifying footage of “God Warrior” Marguerite Perrin have I felt this sorry for a Christian’s kids. And there’s a lot of them to be sorry for, because the anonymous woman in this brand new video has one dozen little and not-so-little darlings.

Scores of Christian Asylum Seekers in Germany Report Being Attacked By Muslim Refugees

Christ-Loving George Zimmerman Is Auctioning Off the Gun He Used To Kill Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood-watch vigilante who killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin four years ago, has always been a man of great piety. He’s remarked philosophically that taking Martin’s life was God’s plan:

The Arabic Translation of The God Delusion Has Reportedly Been Downloaded 10 Million Times

I’m not sure about the legality, but if Richard Dawkins isn’t bothered by the copyright ramifications, then neither am I.

An unauthorized PDF translation of Dawkin’s The God Delusion, by Iraqi emigrant Bassam Al-Baghdadi, who lives in Sweden, has reportedly been dowloaded ten million times,

with 30 percent going to Saudi Arabia. Bassam said that there were over 1,000 downloads on the very first day after he uploaded it, and the numbers only climbed as the translation was picked up and shared on the blogs, websites and forums of prominent Arab atheists. The book has prompted unprecedented controversy and debate in the Arab and Islamic worlds.
