Obama Supports Mt. Soledad Cross

In a move that doesn’t surprise me at all, the anti-Christian secret Muslim commie pinko President Obama has filed a brief asking the Supreme Court to overturn a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision against a giant cross on public land in Southern California.

Christian Sharia Needed to Stop Muslim Sharia

Robertson: Gay People Possessed by Demons

The 700 Club had a story about a gay man who married a woman and then had affairs with men, but later “repented” and saved his marriage. And Pat Robertson said that the man was “obsessed” and that it’s because he was possessed by demons.

He gives this transcript of a conversation between Barton and …

Nate Phelps at the Reason Rally

Like Daniel Fincke, I found Nate Phelps’ talk at the Reason Rally to be one of the most moving and inspiring moments of the event. I think he delivered the single best line: “They called me a rebel. For years, I wore that name with shame until I realized that, confronted with the god of …

Rove Group Puts Out Dishonest Campaign Commercial

I’m sure it will come as a shock to no one that Crossroads GPS, the group founded by Karl Rove, has released a highly dishonest commercial blaming President Obama for soaring oil prices. It would have been more surprising if the ad had been honest and reasonable.

A Rabbi’s Absurd Take on the Reason Rally

A rabbi named Brad Hirshfield has a commentary at Fox News declaring the Reason Rally to be entirely unreasonable. But his arguments are shallow, nonsensical and intellectually dishonest. For example, he uses the “faith in reason” dodge:

In India, Women Can’t Even Have Their Own Religion

Here’s an absolutely creepy situation out of India, where a court has refused to allow a woman to retain her own religion (Zoroastrianism), ruling that she is now officially the religion of her husband (Hinduism) because she married him.

Kennedy Gets it Right on Plea Bargains

The Supreme Court issued two very important rulings last week that expanded, a bit, the protections guaranteed as a result of the right to counsel. In both cases the result was 5-4, with Justice Kennedy joining the four more liberal justices and the four conservatives all in dissent. Both cases involved attorneys giving bad advice …

Ft. Bragg Won’t Let RBB Feed Homeless Vets

Justin Griffith writes that the higher ups at Ft. Bragg are refusing to allow us to collect canned goods at this weekend’s Rock Beyond Belief event to help feed homeless veterans. They’re using a policy that forbids “fundraising” on the base to do so, but applying it inconsistently:

A new article and book by two political scientists, David Campbell and Robert Putnam, looks at the recent uptick in the number of Americans, especially young people, keeping their distance from traditional Christianity and remaining outside the church.

Bargaining With Newt’s Ego

Michelle Cottle speculates on what it would take to get Newt to drop out of the race (if you’re Santorum) or to stay in it (if you’re Romney). At this point, she says, he’s only still in the race “because he’s drunk on a cocktail of spite, narcissism, and general mischief.” But he may also …
