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. The less than four feet high structure could be mistaken for cage for dog. Sadly, this [Read More…]

How can Christians support insanity plea in case of woman murdering her children?

In reading more about the woman who recently killed her children to exorcise demons from them, I came across this little bit and it made me wonder: Avery was part of a dance troupe at a nearby Christian church where “her job was, as a lover of Christ, was that she was going to keep [Read More…]

Impromptu homicide reignites the discussion on gun control.

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…]

It is named after the westernized name of its Russian inventor, Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928. The instrument’s controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the relative position of the thereminist’s hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) [Read More…]

Why Virginia Will Get Same-Sex Marriage Soon

It was all over the news yesterday that Mark Herring, the newly-elected Virginia Attorney General, is going to reverse his predecessor’s defense of Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban.

Republicans in Virginia, because of their belief in government non-interference in private [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…]

Church found liable after recommending employee it had fired for indecent behavior with kids to a daycare.

I know, I know…god’s justice is so much greater than man’s – but when you fire someone a couple of times for inappropriate behavior with children at a church, it might be time to stop placing him around kids (and even call the terrestrial authorities).  What you definitely don’t do is recommend them to a [Read More…]

Courthouse where County Judge told atheists “no banners” now sporting a banner.

Remember when a group of atheists wanted to put a Happy Winter Solstice banner beside the nativity scene on the Baxter County courthouse lawn and were denied?  Then, when pressed, County Judge Mickey Pendergrass said that atheists could have their own display if they went through the proper legal channels (which they had done) but [Read More…]
