To the Media Who Promoted Faux “Wellness Guru” Belle Gibson​: No, You​ Don’t Get to Criticize Her Lack of Apology

Kylie Willey was suffering the agony of cancer and the sickness of chemotherapy when a friend told her of a true miracle. Sweet, young, and lovely fellow Australian Belle Gibson (below) had recently enchanted national media with her inspiring story of healing multiple terminal cancers by quitting chemotherapy and switching to things that feel “good and nurturing.” 

The 26-year-old’s holistic-lifestyle blog, book, and phone app, all titled The Whole Pantry, advised cancer patients to switch to yoga, meditation, colonics, oxygen therapy, craniosacral therapy (a type of energy-healing head massage), herbalism, and a diet free of dairy, gluten, preservatives, refined sugars, and GMOs.

Conservatives Are Mad Because President Obama Didn’t Say “God” in His Fourth of July Address

What does President Obama have to do to convince people he’s a Christian? You’d think his rendition of “Amazing Grace” at a black church the other week might have swayed the doubters a bit… but that’s giving them too much credit.

During his Weekly Address, Obama wished everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July, expressed support for the U.S. Women’s National Team before their World Cup championship game, and spoke about the sacrifices of the men and women in the military… but he didn’t mention “God” anywhere in the address so conservatives are flipping out.
