Bill Maher: Faith is ‘Nothing to be Admired’

On last night’s Real Time with Bill Maher, one of the New Rules focused on Rick Perry‘s unnecessary signing of the “Merry Christmas” Law, Sally Quinn‘s reprehensible criticism of Hillary Clinton for not including her faith in her Twitter bio, and how the thing Christians fear more are atheists like Rebecca Vitsmun who aren’t as scary as the stereotypes would suggest:

Chairman of Irish School Board Resigns After Distributing Pro-Life Propaganda to Children

After spending some time as the spokesperson for now-retired archbishop of Dublin Cardinal Desmond Connell, Eddie Shaw became the chairman of a Catholic school board. Maybe that position makes sense for someone who has spent a long time within the Church environment, but what he did a couple of weeks ago (no, not that) has led to his resignation.
