Excommunicated for saving the life of a mother of four

Those Catholics sure do love to excommunicate people for abortions, even when the abortion saves one life that would have otherwise died.

Jehovah Park

I know you have to be topical to keep the kids in line, but holy Jesus Christ in a Jeep being chased by raptors and a T-Rex. Must I be proselytized at, to the epic refrains from the Jurassic Park soundtrack? And seriously, “who can give the Devil hemorrhoids”. Might as well have said “my …

Dance, Link, Dance!

“This could be done right, and it is NOT being done right.”

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Are you outraged yet? Are you outraged that we are so lustful for oil that we’re willing to destroy the environment in its pursuit, and so greedy for profits that we aren’t investing in mitigating technologies?

Working backward from your chosen answer

This is the real problem I have with Bible literalists: they choose their answer ahead of time, and then do simple mathematics with arbitrary figures to justify that answer. Meanwhile, entire fields of scientific study get shat upon. Hat tip to Julie at Attempts at Rational Behavior.
