World History Text Mentions Islam—Florida’s Christian Right Shits Itself

So, I see the headline, “Brevard School Board wants 10-member panel to compile textbook supplement,” and as I read just a little further, I believe I smell a religious rat. I want to be objective going in, but the accusation (including the level of response) that Prentice Hall would be selling a textbook with “pro-Islamic …

“21 dead in religious rioting in central Nigeria”

I don’t have much to comment on here. Just to say we hear often about religious persecution of Christians around the globe from Christian news sites.

As most of you probably are aware, the confirmation (or not) of Don McLeroy as chair of the Texas SBOE is pending.

Out of the mouths of blondes

The extremist far-right wackaloons good and godly people in the loving Christian community of lovingful loving loveness figured out a while back that their message of hate, hypocrisy and ignorance love and apple-pie decency was a much easier sell when it came from the mouths of photogenic blondes.
