Lots of news coming out of Nigeria today.  Ah well…it takes the focus off of Arkansas.  The gay panic is so severe in Nigeria that a woman is kicking her cat out of the house for being gay. A Nigerian woman is making some eyebrow-raising headlines after reportedly disowning her cat for “an unnatural sexual [Read More...]

Nigerian teen caged for 30 months by her parents…because she’s a witch.

At least they didn’t burn her. The grubby dungeon, located in front of her family apartment, was built with carton board and roofing sheets ostensibly to ward off the elements and gave it the semblance of a dwelling place.

A veteran of Desert Storm was texting the babysitter of his sick daughter to make sure everything was ok, briefly ignoring the notice that said no texting during the previews of a movie.  Rude?  Sure.  But understandable.  Certainly not a crime that should carry with it a death sentence.  But thanks to the presence of [Read More...]

The bible vs. Wikipedia.

This image made me smile.  People who write things in the 21st century are more enlightened about morality and science than writers from a particularly ignorant part of the world 2,000 years ago.  Who knew?  And if you insist that god inspired the contents of the bible, you’re just painting your all-knowing, all-wise god as [Read More...]
