Back to the ’80s: ‘I Performed Satanic Rituals Inside Abortion Clinics’ says ‘former Satanist’ at LifeNews.com

Huge, if true: “Just after I turned 14, the coven members came to me and said that I was going to be involved in an abortion in about nine months. There was a sex party with all the male members between 12 and 15 and a female member over 18 and her purpose was to get pregnant, and then she was going to have an abortion in nine months.” [Read more…]

Would Mike Huckabee send the FBI to protect the personhood of this 40-year-old unborn twin?

I wouldn’t guess that either Rubio or Huckabee — or most of their fellow anti-abortion, “personhood begins at conception” proponents — would want to extend this claim of full personhood and full citizenship to this unviable unborn twin. The problem, for them, is that they haven’t got any clear rationale for exempting that fetus in fetu from the categorical, absolute claim they are making about human personhood from the moment of fertilization.

Postcards from the culture wars (8.13)

The Scarlet Letter: The A-word doesn’t apply when the Right People choose it for the Right Reasons

For Scott Walker, et. al., the word “abortion” refers to evil baby-killing performed on behalf of irresponsible sluts for unknown — but presumably evil and indefensible — reasons. The termination of a pregnancy by good, white, Christian people may be the same procedure, but since they’re good, non-slutty people, they get to call it something else. [Read more…]

Yolanda Pierce on the “cauldron of proslavery ideology” that shaped American theology. LBJ on the Voting Rights Act, 50 years before John Roberts killed it. John Oliver on sex education.

Triple murder: ‘Ritualistic Presbyterian killing planned to coincide with the Blue Moon’

There was absolutely nothing about this crime scene that should have made any police officer or journalist imagine that this crime had anything to do with Presbyterianism at all. That’s just a nonsense claim fabricated out of whole cloth by a panicked sheriff who seems utterly ignorant about Presbyterianism and Presbyterians. [Read more…]

Sunshine don’t hold up to dark

“After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages … eating delicious pancakes.” Remembering the I in IHOP. Plus: The Stone Age lasted longer than a few generations; Alabama police should choose a more honest Beatitude; and say hello to the Gerry Adams of Operation Rescue. [Read more…]

It breaks my heart to hear you talkin’ this way

Why studying biology with the anti-science cynics of Wheaton College makes as much sense as studying medicine with the anti-vaxxer Catholic bishops of Kenya. Plus: Devils and aliens in Roswell and in print; what it looks like when you sell your soul; and a wrestling legend runs out of chewing gum for the last time. [Read more…]
