Butt Dust

Via Jerry Coyne comes the above image, presumably from an Ash Wednesday bulletin. Is it evidence of the truly negative view of human beings that some Christians have? Or is it just evidence of how crucial it is to proofread very carefully, and not just look for the squiggly red underlining in your Word processing software? [Read More…]

For Lent

I am sure that you can Google “filioque” if you don’t get the joke. Try “Pope Francis” andĀ “Bartholomew I” if you don’t recognize the two individuals in the image… [Read more…]

Self-proclaimed psychics once again fail to see [Read More…]
