Stop thanking god for the three rescued kidnapping victims.

::HELLA TRIGGER WARNING:: Ten years ago three Cleveland women, two of them teens, were kidnapped.  During this time they were chained in a house, never allowed to leave, raped, and forced to have children.  Just yesterday, with the help of a neighbor, one of them managed to escape and call the police.

More coverup in the Catholic Church for child rapists.

There’s a particular crime, let’s call it “protecting and abetting child rapists”, which most human beings (including those evil atheists) can immediately discern is a very, very bad thing.  However, the organization which claims to be a moral beacon to the world, the followers and leaders of which often insisting that one cannot be moral [Read More...]

Delaware is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!

Well, maybe not “doomed” per se.  God once flooded the world and sent plagues and fires to punish sinners, but now those things have been replaced by the nattering of put out Christians who think it’s their right to dictate who other adults should love.  Yes, Delaware is going to let gay people get married.

Rick Perry: Opposing gays in the boy scouts is like opposing slavery.

I can’t make this stuff up: “Perry, speaking from the library in the Governor’s Mansion, referred to a portrait of Sam Houston, whom he called Texas’ greatest governor. He told how Houston’s principled stand against slavery and Texas’ joining the Confederacy cost him his governorship.” Said Perry: “That’s the type of principled leadership, that’s the [Read More...]

They will bow before the might of Heimerdinger.

New Zealand anti-gay group to be de-registered as a charity.

New Zealand has some pretty sensible laws about which groups get to call themselves charities. Under the Charities Act, registered charities can undertake political activities, such as supporting or opposing legislation in its area of activity, but not as its main purpose. Charities must be set up wholly and exclusively for charitable purpose and public [Read More...]

An atheist quoting Karl Marx.

Boy, do I hate to feed that stereotype, since there’s not much economically in which I agree with Marx.  Plus, I hate giving fundamentalists who have no appreciation for nuance more fuel for their atheists-are-all-communist-socialist-Marx-Nazi-evil-people” fire.  But Michaelyn is having to read his work for a Western Civ course and reminded me of this quote, [Read More...]

Abercrombie and Fitch CEO gives me my long-awaited reason to hate them: they don’t want you if you’re not skinny.

I’ve never had anything against Abercrombie and Fitch, other than the fact that most of the people I’ve met in my life who wear their brand turned out to be pretentious and insufferable.  But you can’t blame a clothing company for the character of the people who buy their clothes.  But still, there was a [Read More...]

Talk among yourselves.

Whatever contagion that my roommate has been carting around the house has found it’s way into me.  I’m going to spite it by awarding myself a three day weekend and resting.  So you all can talk among yourselves. If I’m wrong, and there is a heaven to which I must go before getting to spend [Read More...]
