BeingLiberal.org Brings the Stupid

2015-05-08 09.20.17

Let’s see what kind of memes our lefty friends are spreading today: Let’s take the points one at a time: Why is “Christian” in scare quotes? Christians of conscience who don’t want to participate in the absurd and sinful farce of gay “marriage” are not really Christian? So now non-believers are reading us out of our [Read More...]

Blasphemy and Desecration: Keeping the Peace in a Pluralistic World

Wikimedia Commons: Mohammed depicted with hands covered and face left blank.

Some people seem to be misunderstanding this post. I can defend Geller’s right to say whatever she wants and still criticize the way she does it without being some kind of apologist for jihad. This is something the libertarian secularists don’t seem to get because they don’t understand religion. I don’t think Geller does either. [Read More...]

I Wasn’t Charlie, and I’m Not Pamela

The winning cartoon from Pamela Geller's contest.

You don’t get to choose the guy in the trench next to you. The nasty miscreants of Charlie Hebdo would not be my choice for allies, nor would the objectivist idiot Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs.
