A Must Read on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963 My Dear Fellow Clergymen: While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling present activities “unwise and untimely.” Seldom do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas. If I sought to answer all the criticisms that cross my desk, my secretaries … Continue reading

Bloody Mary

Big business has a big mouth these days, but what comes out isn’t always pleasant. Chick-fil-A hates gays. Hobby Lobby has its panties in a knot over contraception. Taco Bell fires managers for hiring too many Mexicans. It doesn’t seem to end. Then we read about the firestorm surrounding Mary’s Gourmet Diner, a restaurant in … Continue reading

The Second Coming of Homeless Jesus

A couple of weeks ago, we told you about some of the unbelievably heartless ways some American communities have been dealing with homeless people: from making it illegal to give them blankets on cold nights to letting cops knock the free, church-donated hot dogs out of their cold, near-dead and greedy hands. (Really!) The stories … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

If there was any political news, it was rather hard to find this week since media resigned itself to reporting on nothing but the fact that they have nothing to report about that missing flight but will anyway. And the media not covering the flight is covering how much the media is covering it. But, … Continue reading

Christian Shingles!

Is there anything regular people do that Christians can’t do better? Not to be outdone one-upping Wikipedia with the fact-stripped and fantastic Conservapedia (must be seen to be believed), now they’ve bested social media with a right-wing Twitter aggregation site called Twitchy, which just sold for an undisclosed amount to a Christian radio conglomerate with … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

The Week in Politics We all learned this week that Barack Obama really is a Kenyan Satanist because his new website has almost as many bugs and crashes as, say, those other embarrassing URLs like Facebook and Twitter – which the world also gave up on the first time there was a glitch. Meanwhile, those … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a pioneer for women’s and human rights, was born on this day in 1815. She’s no longer a household name, but her common sense and life’s work make it clear that she should be. Not only because of the impact she made on our society, but because America has yet to adopt … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

The Week in Politics: CTRL+ALT+DEL This week, Congress decided that cutting $40 billion from the food stamps program would be a good idea. After all, that budget works out to a whole couple of bucks a day for a portion of the 40+ million Americans living below the poverty line. And those folks would probably … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

The Week in Politics: Strange Signals Last week, we learned that Iranian government ministers have been flocking to the Internet and posting their own pages. 18 bigwigs have jumped on board so far, starting with Mr. Zarif, above. Meanwhile, back at home, this picture of President Obama was published: And then someone at WorldNetDaily read … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

This week, Sarah Palin babbled something about being able to see Santa Clause from her porch. Michele Bachmann mumbled something about wanting to spank President Obama and take away his magic wand. Some people have vague recollections about something to do with immigration. But basically it was just too damn hot for politics this week. … Continue reading
