Will this calm the birther storm????

The President is releasing his long form birth certificate today. Trump and Franklin Graham may have pushed the right/wrong buttons. So will this calm the storm? Open forum - what will the new objections be? What will birthers say about this development? And what new and startling findings will we see? Been pretty serious around here for a spell, let's have some fun with this. And here it is... I wonder if this thread will finally die? (2800 comments and counting) … [Read more...]

Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson: The Faith Factor

Tomorrow, April 15, marks the day in 1947 when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball. The executive who signed him with the express purpose of combating racism was Branch Rickey, President of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Today, CNN reports that Branch Rickey's faith was a strong motivation for his decision to sign Robinson. Roll the tape: I watched the CNN segment this morning and reporter Ed Henry said that he told President Obama about the segment of Robinson … [Read more...]

Bryan Fischer: Now let’s ban the mosques

The American Family Association has become scary. There I said it. At one point, I presented facts to the AFA correcting a report from their information source, OneNewsNow, about the American Psychological Association's task force report on sexual orientation but their reporter hung up on me. I was allowed to rebut some criticism aimed my way which they published as hearsay, but the damage was done. But these are minor problems compared to where Bryan Fischer has taken the group. I … [Read more...]

Sue-a-what? Lindsay Lohan wants her some E-Trade

Remember the E-Trade commercial that featured the girl baby asking the boy baby why he didn't call her last night? And then we find out that the boy baby was dividing his time between the first girl baby and "that milk-a-holic, Lindsay?" In case you forgot, here it is. But near the end, don't blink and see if you think "Lindsay Lohan" when the literal babe jumps out and asks the age old question, "milk-a what?" Never occured to me but it did to Lindsay Lohan. She is suing E-Trade … [Read more...]

Prejean keeps crown; holds same position as President Obama

Must have been a heady moment to be with Donald Trump and keep her Miss California crown. Carrie Prejean reminded people that she and the President hold the same position on same-sex marriage...(well probably not exactly the same if you consider his approach to Prop 8). And a nice trifecta today: keep the crown, hang out with Trump and featured guest again on the Focus on the Family radio show. All in all a better day than some of the last few. … [Read more...]

Carrie Prejean has second thoughts about recent Blisss Magazine pic

On the heels of defending revealing photos as part of the job of a model, Carrie Prejean has had second thoughts about a recent photo published in Blisss Magazine (spelled Bl!sss on the mag website). Miss Prejean's pic is a "Super Taste" centerfold of the month and is the lead photo on her Otto Models page. (warning: not workplace friendly) The recent controversy surrounding Miss Prejean's modeling work has focused on pictures of her taken when she was 17. She has expressed regret publicly … [Read more...]

And the award for the most extreme, outrageous headline goes to…

Not anyone I have written about before... The rhetoric is getting so outrageous that I didn't think any more societal ills could be blamed on gays but I was wrong. But Robert Peters of Morality in Media (Can the irony get any thicker?), put out a news release just now with this headline: "Connecting the Dots: The Link Between Gay Marriage and Mass Murders" His news hook is the horrific shootings in Binghamton, NY where 14 people were killed, including the perpetrator of the crime. In … [Read more...]
