GAY RIGHTS: Slovakia’s referendum against LGBT people fails.

The other day I wrote a bit about Pope Happy popping over to Slovakia to support an anti-gay referendum.  Considering the majority of Slovakia’s population is Catholic and with Pope Progressive endorsing discrimination, I figured the referendum would pass. I’m happy to report it did not: Only 21.4% of those eligible voted, the national statistics [Read More…]

FAITH: Pope approves of spanking so long as you don’t demean the child.

Pope Happy dropped some more wisdom recently.  This time he’s said it’s ok to spank your kids so long as you “do it with dignity” and don’t “demean them.” Pope Francis has stirred up a hornet’s nest with remarks in which he said it’s OK for parents to spank children, so long as they do [Read More…]

FAITH & LAW: New Jersey pledge case dismissed.

I see from Hemant’s blog that a judge has just dismissed the AHA’s suit in New Jersey challenging the presence of “under god” in the pledge of allegiance.

POLITICS: WV lawmaker says a baby can be a positive byproduct of rape.

West Virginia lawmaker Brian Kurcaba, a Republican, was defending a bill passed by the WV House that would ban abortions after 20 weeks in all circumstances, when he said something incredibly insensitive.  He said that in the case of a rape resulting in a pregnancy, yeah rape is horrible, but look on the bright side – [Read More…]

FAITH & POLITICS: National Prayer Breakfast sucks, but Obama gave a nod to atheists/separation of church & state.

I think the National Prayer Breakfast is a terrible idea.  If the President won’t meet openly with atheists, he shouldn’t do it with other religious leaders.  However, Obama did say some decent things at the breakfast yesterday.  Obama reminded Christians their hands are not entirely clean: “Unless we get on our high horse and think [Read More…]

MENTAL ILLNESS: First meeting with a new therapist today.

Today I meet with my new therapist for the first time.  I’ve forgotten his name, so we’ll call him Harold.
