Deported Children Being Murdered After Being Sent Back

As most Republicans demand the immediate return of the 55,000 or so child refugees fleeing Central America for the United States (in direct contravention of the law, incidentally), those who are being deported are facing serious violence upon their return. At least five children have been murdered after being sent back to Honduras alone.

Incredibly Clueless Catholic Argues For Blasphemy Laws

If you thought the demand for censorship of a satanic black mass in Oklahoma City was absurd, wait till you read this column in the National Catholic Reporter by Phyllis Zagano.

Klayman: Obama and Holder are ‘Racist’

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, published his weekly Worldnetdaily column on Saturday and, even by his own low standards, it’s amazingly stupid. It seems that Obama’s tepid and mostly meaningless response to the shooting of Michael Brown has proven him to be a racist who hates white people (including his own mother and grandmother, one presumes).
