Minnesota lawmaker’s heart breaks because of gay marriage.

Who is the real victim in the gay marriage debate?  You may think it’s the gays who are afforded fewer rights than straights, but have you thought about the straight people like Rep. Peggy Scott of Minnesota who might actually have to…y’know…look at gay people?  Probably not, you fascist. Look at what the upcoming pro-equality [Read More...]

Sean Carroll on the compatibility of science and religion as well as the Templeton Foundation.

Badass physicist Sean Carroll has some strong words in slate about whether or not religion and science can ever coexist, as well as for the Templeton Foundation.

Nun was actually a hero.

Yesterday I wrote a post about an 83 year-old nun trying to steal uranium that I got pretty much entirely wrong.  The nun is actually a hero.  She’s part of a group called the Plowshares Movement which does non-violent protests against nuclear arms. 1. absolutely nonviolent to people, 2. each actor claimed personal responsibility for [Read More...]

Random thoughts about one of the hardest tenor solos of all time.

Seriously…a documentary about how Christians are persecuted.

This is simultaneously hilarious and depressing.  Hilarious that Christians, who hold almost every seat in our government and who are the vast majority of our citizens can convince themselves that they are oppressed.  Depressing that the thinking capacity of the children in the promo has been so warped by propaganda. Never has a battle so [Read More...]
