The Incidence of Trent Franks Thinking is Very Low

It is possible, even from the great distance of Maine, to hear the DC press corps exhale with a collective “OMiGod” at the remarkably ignorant declaration of Republican Congressman Trent Franks, who [...]

The Madonna and John Corapi Prophecies: Still No Death or Mayhem from On High

Five years ago, in 2008, Catholic priest and media personality Father John Corapi predicted divine punishment for abortion and godlessness, railing in dire tones:

“If we do not soon stop the genocide of abortion in the United States, we shall run the course of all those that prove by their actions that they are enemies [...]

Corapi and Cohen Religious Predictions of Doom lie Barren (excluding collateral damage)

It’s often said in authoritarian religious circles that “God is NOT mocked!”, “God CANNOT be mocked!,” or “God WILL NOT be mocked!”. As an empirical matter, the God character and His supposed standards are actually mocked on a regular basis. In the first decade of the 21st Century, two religious leaders predicted that such mockery [...]

#25 Way to Exasperate a Liberal: Establish a New Standard in Pastoral Care

Sister Margaret McBride, a member of the ethics board of the Catholic St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, gave her approval for an abortion of an 11-week old fetus with no cerebral cortex when doctors made it clear to her that the very sick young woman carrying the pregnancy would die without it. It should [...]

The Lone Wolf Campaign Predators of 2010

The election season of 2010 has seen an explosion of independent expenditures for and against congressional candidates, and the donors to the groups that mount these independent expenditures are largely invisible thanks to recent campaign finance deregulation. Tracking and comparing donors between groups is the easiest way to uncover patterns of coordination and possible corruption [...]

Requiring Information That Children Feel Suffering

Mike Johanns and other senators that have introduced legislation requiring women to be informed that abortion can cause pain in a fetus don’t want to apply the same protections for children who have already been born. [...]

Bombing Plot Not as Sexy as a Koran-Burning Pastor

While the world fussed over the canceled plans of a pastor to burn a book for God today in Florida, it largely ignored a man named Moose who was arrested this week for his plot to blow up an abortion clinic for God in North Carolina.

Blowing up someone else’s building < burning your own [...]

Republicans Promote Pistol-Packing Census-Counted Zygotes

“You’ll get my gun when you pry it out of my cold, dead cell membrane!”

Is this going to be the new motto of the National Rifle Association? It may be if Rep. Paul Broun gets his way. The member of Congress from Georgia has been joined by 55 of his fellow House Republicans in [...]

T-Shirt Designers Against Soybean Abortion … Now!

But somebody shucked the little fella anyway. He’s edamame now! Salt him and put him in a bowl with the rest.

His mom is just a vegetable, anyway, although former Senator Bill Frist swears that if you look at video of a soybean field long enough, you can see evidence of intentional movement.

God, the Biggest Abortionist of all

Between 30% and 50% of conceptions (some suggest more) end in spontaneous miscarriage. This results in a far higher number of terminated pregnancies from spontaneous miscarriage than from intentional abortion. Those who believe in full human rights for a fertilized egg and assert an “equally valuable life at 2 cells” must confront this fact. The [...]
