The arch diocese of Milwaukee is having a rough decade. Most of it stems from Timothy Dolan, who was in the running to be the next pope, shuffling around child-raping priests. The diocese was then sued by several of the victims and, in order to protect the money (i.e., to avoid compensating the victims), Dolan [Read More…]
I get paid every 25,000 hits. What that means is that if I end the month with 299,999 page views, I essentially don’t get paid for 24,999 views. So sometimes the stars align in such a way that it wouldn’t make a great deal of sense for me to work the last day of the [Read More…]
Does anyone know of a decent, credible online service thing that will essentially take a snapshot (not image, but rather just HTML content) of a website, as a 3rd party? I’d like to have an independent verification I can appeal to, in case a website later decides to scrub their content. I’m thinking Google cache, but [Read More…]
The gay agenda is about kicking out everybody who won’t have sex with everyone else. Thanks Pat Robertson!
Oh, you thought they were anti-discrimination laws implemented only to make sure minorities aren’t treated like shit by the majority? Well think again! They’re actually laws set up specifically to make society dangerous and to set it up for the judgment of god. These laws aren’t just saying “If you want to discriminate, you need [Read More…]
Mark Sandlin of Patheos got himself an article published in TIME. First thing’s first, congrats to Mark. That’s an honor few writers achieve. Now for some of the reasons I think his article missed the mark. 😛 Mark writes about the baggage liberal Christians must put up with since Christianity has become associated with discrimination, [Read More…]
::EDIT:: This is what I get for not checking the date on articles people send me. This is from 2005. Derp. ::/EDIT:: The University of Kansas is making a wonderful move to oppose creationism in a state that desperately needs it: A course being offered next semester by the university religious studies department is titled [Read More…]
Pakistan…where the moral considerations of religion are given more power than compassion. It is a place where the notion of “Thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain” is taken very seriously; deathly seriously. A Pakistani mob killed a woman member of a religious sect and two of her granddaughters after a sect member [Read More…]
North Carolina has said it will not defend its gay marriage ban in the wake of the Fourth Circuit Court’s ruling: At a news conference Monday afternoon, Atty. Gen. Roy Cooper said he had made the decision because the appeals court ruling “predicts our law will be struck down.” “Simply put, it is time to [Read More…]
FL gubernatorial Charlie Crist states the obvious, handily rebuts GOP talking point on climate change.
There is a popular talking point with the GOP right now that gets used in the presence of discussing climate change. The line is “I’m not a scientist.” It has the handy effect of absolving them from answering any questions about climate change presumably because we should defer to the climate change scientists. The irony [Read More…]
I love the Church of Satan. You can quote me on that. Everything the religious right tries to use “religious liberty” to do? The Church of Satan use the same definition of “religious liberty” to do the opposite. Funnily, the religious right’s support of “religious liberty” evaporates pretty quick when it’s someone else doing it. [Read More…]
