Mike Huckabee Answers Atheist’s Questions at Iowa Rally

Reader Justin Scott, an Iowan who takes his politics seriously, has been going to meet-and-greets with a number of candidates to ask why atheists should consider supporting them.

A couple of days ago, he shared with Mike Huckabee his concern about an eroding wall between church and state, and then asked why atheists should vote for him, especially given the things Huckabee has said about us.

Business As Usual: MSNBC and the New York Times Censor the Latest Charlie Hebdo Cover

On the one-year anniversary of the Islamist bloodbath at Charlie Hebdo, the New York Times deemed the weekly’s commemorative and irreverent cover newsworthy, but declined to show it — or even to explain it properly.

Writes the paper’s Christopher D. Shea:

The cover shows a bearded figure in a blood-stained robe and carrying a machine gun, and the words “One Year After: The Assassin Is on the Run.”

That description is technically correct. But of course, as we shouldn’t need to point out again, the “bearded figure” is no mystery man: it’s Charlie‘s depiction of God. Without that clarification, and without a picture of the cartoon in question, the Times story makes zero sense.
