Flag “Defenders”: Is this a Desecration?

This morning, while breaking up camp on Mount Desert Island, I noticed that someone had placed a small polyester American flag next to a water spigot.

Christians Riot Over Offensive Images of Jesus with a Cigarette and Beer. The Problem is Fundamentalism.

When some Muslims in some nations staged riots during the 2005-2006 debacle surrounding the publication of images of Mohammed, right-wing politicians used the riots to decry the emergence of “islamofascism” in widely cut-and-pasted opinion pieces around the internet and in print newspapers as well.

Backdoor Activism: Replacing Nabbed Images for a Clarion Call on H.R. 6304

We’ve written a lot here at Irregular Times, and along with our many words come many images. From time to time someone links directly to an image we’ve put on our servers, having it appear on their blog or home page but still drain our server load. Some people get quite upset about this and [...]

14 year old Jessica Perry of Jacksonville, Florida has seen the image of Jesus in a piece of hard candy:
