Some Cities in the West Now Bow to the Religious With Gender-Segregated Swimming in Public Pools

On most Saturday mornings, I take my youngest daughter to the Y for swim class. While she’s in the water, I sit on the bleachers and watch her, and chat with other parents.

Doing so makes me a perv in the eyes of some Muslim men. Or at least, they object to my presence when their daughters or wives are in the water, too. If I lived in Canada, or Sweden, and my daughter and I went to a municipal pool, I might be told to scram — just because I’m a guy.

Parishioners Sic a Private Eye On Their Priest To Dig For Evidence of Gayness and Corruption

The Miami parish and Catholic school of St. Rose of Lima appears to be falling apart, due to explosive allegations against its priest, Father Pedro Corces.

A group of parents calling themselves Christifidelis, fed up with what they see as improper and possible criminal behavior by Corces, decided to hire a private investigator to spy on him. The PI followed and photographed the priest from a distance, tracked Corces and his protegés on social media, and even dug through the rectory’s trash. The resulting report is an interesting read.

In Defense of Hate Preachers (Yes, Seriously)

I love this blog, and that includes the often smart and funny commenters who enliven it.

But I haven’t quite forgotten the chilling (and thankfully rare) occasions when the comments leaned in the direction of condoning violence, or even cheering it on.
