Another Bill O’Reilly Fan

As an unofficial member of the Keith Olbermann fan club, how on earth could I possibly resist plugging a website and a book with the name Sweet Jesus, I hate Bill O’Reilly? I suggest reading it with a side order of falafel.

Rowe on Kupelian’s Ridiculous Book

Also at Positive Liberty, Jon Rowe has a post about David Kupelian’s book The Marketing of Evil. Kupelian is one of the big muckety mucks at the Worldnutdaily and his book is full of the sort of breathless and ridiculous “the fags are coming, the fags are coming” rhetoric that is de rigeur at that…

Kuznicki on Gay Adoption and Family

Jason Kuznicki has a terrific post at Positive Liberty about the legal and personal difficulties he will encounter as he and his husband Scott prepare to adopt a child. Yes, the post rambles a bit, but it really touches on how difficult it can be on him. Imagine this scenario and think about how you’d…

Don’t Stop the ACLU

This looks interesting. A new blog has begun and it’s called Don’t Stop the ACLU, obviously in response to our old pals at StopTheACLU. This should be fun to keep an eye on.

Rise of the Health Nazis

Yes, yes, I know – Godwin’s law and all that. But the term is so perfect that I choose to use it, even while recognizing that the analogy is obviously absurd. I refer, of course, to the full range of health and longevity fetishists who push for ever more intrusive regulation of what we eat,…

A reader alerted me to a situation down at Calvin College, right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have many friends associated with Calvin, including the theistic evolutionist mentioned many times in the comments on a thread below, Howard Van Till (he’s a retired physics professor from Calvin). Every year, the Calvin College student newspaper…

Responses to the Jesus Cartoons

If you’re looking for a really amusing response to the Jesus cartoons, look no further than this column by Kevin McCullough at the Worldnutdaily. Unlike Donohue, he doesn’t attempt to censor the paper; he figures God will do that when he sends those blasphemers to hell. Good for a chuckle or two.

Another Student Free Speech Case

And it’s on the same topic. In response to the Day of Silence, a group of religious right organizations sponsorded a “Day of Truth”, encouraging kids to speak out against homosexuality. At Mira Loma High School in California, a group of students staged an after school protest in response to the Day of Silence, wearing…

Islam = Treason?

When I’m looking for wingnuttery to have a little fun with, I can always be sure to find something crazy at any website associated with Alan Keyes. Today’s example is this column at RenewAmerica by Pete Fisher in which he argues that we should actually evict all Muslims from the US. Yep, you read that…

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Okay, this is just funny. After my post yesterday about the Jesus cartoons in an Oregon newspaper and the Catholic League’s attempt to censor them, someone named mnuez left the following comment. My regular readers will no doubt find this as ridiculous as I do: Boy, you sound pretty upset. Now, I haven’t read every…
