Abuse of ‘Witches’ on the Rise in London

I’ve written a lot over the years about Leo Igwe, Helen Ukpabio and the horrible abuse aimed almost exclusively at women and children in North Africa due to allegations of witchcraft. Unfortunately, that practice is now spreading elsewhere. London has seen an alarming number of cases of witchcraft-related abuse.

Another School Distributing Gideon Bibles

An elementary school in Flowood, Mississippi is not only allowing the Gideons to come in and distribute Bibles to 5th grade students, they instructed the teachers to take their classes through the lobby where the group was set up with a table. The American Humanist Association has sent a letter to the school district.

Judge Posner Destroys Conservative Claims Again

Judge Richard Posner, a legendary libertarian judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, has once again destroyed the arguments of Republicans and conservatives, this time on voter fraud and photo ID laws. He asked for an en banc rehearing on the Wisconsin photo ID law and a 5-5 vote denied that rehearing, but he wrote a blistering dissent from that vote (the Supreme Court later put the law on hold for the upcoming election).

More Bigots Calling for ‘Civil Disobedience’

I continue to be absolutely fascinated by the now-constant call of anti-gay bigots for civil disobedience in response to the legalization of same-sex marriage in a majority of the United States. Linda Harvey is the latest to do it, but like all the other she doesn’t actually spell out what she thinks people ought to do.

Trouble for Another Televangelist

Ernest Angley is one of the old-school TV evangelists. Now 93 years old, his ministry goes back more than 60 years. He’s such an obvious con man that it’s difficult to imagine how anyone could fall for his schtick, but people do. And now some of those people are blowing the whistle on a whole of weird shit going on, like forcing men to get vasectomies and Angley fondling them routinely.

Those Poor Persecuted Christian Wedding Vendors

The Worldnetdaily has yet another article about the terrible plight of Christian wedding vendors who think they should be allowed to discriminate against anyone they want (gay people, of course). The article is entitled “Christian vendors locked out of wedding business.” But they are actually the ones locking others out.

‘Coach’ Dave is an Anti-Vaxxer Too

With all the other bizarre and inane views that “Coach” Dave Daubenmire has, it certainly shouldn’t be a surprise that he also thinks that vaccines cause autism and a bunch of other bad things. But he says if you have the holy spirit, you’ll be able to know the truth about everything — the fact that he’s wrong about everything notwithstanding.

Buchanan Spills the Beans on ‘Judicial Dictatorship’

Calling for “massive disobedience” in response to the Supreme Court’s inaction on same-sex marriage last week, Pat Buchanan, perhaps unwittingly, gives up the game in an extended rant against “judicial dictatorship.” Unlike so many others who take the same position, he’s willing to admit that he’d say the same thing in all the other historical cases where his ideological forebears did the same. And he spews some seriously weird history along the way.
