  • Joseph Farah calls for the appointment of a special counsel to “conduct a real investigation into the murder of Seth Rich.”
  • What is alarming Laurie Higgins today? “Pray for our nation’s little ones. If they manage to survive the womb and are lucky enough to have both a mommy and a daddy, they may end up at their local library or bookstore for story time with drag queens.”
  • Cliff Kincaid explains how “weed is linked to violence, mental illness and jihad.”
  • Spencer Irvine wants the media to stop reporting that President Trump shoved another world leader aside: “It’s another hypothetical anti-Trump news piece, where the media is trying to portray the president as rude and bellicose. Was it a shove? Who knows, but the media should not speculate as much as it currently does.”
  • Finally, Jesse Lee Peterson explains that critical thinking is a tool of the devil.

Liberty Counsel, the Orlando-based Religious Right law firm that has represented public officials who got into trouble for defying the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, put out a press release yesterday attacking Orlando pastor Joel Hunter for hosting an event on LGBTQ inclusion in the church.

In the press release, Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver said it was “heresy” for Hunter to host The Reformation Project and its founder Matthew Vines, author of “God and the Gay Christian.” Staver called Vines’s views “an affront to Jesus and the Bible.”

While Religious Right leaders are quick to portray criticism of their political agendas and tactics as an attack on their faith and freedom, they clearly have no problem attacking the faith of Christians who disagree with them. As we noted in March, the American Pastors Network devoted an entire radio show to trashing religious progressives and declaring that it is impossible for a “genuine” Christian to be part of the “religious left.” A few years ago, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins even suggested that Christians who support equality for gay people don’t deserve the same legal protection as other Christians because “true religious freedom” …read more

Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire declared on his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning that America needs “a more violent Christianity.” He cited President Trump and Greg Gianforte as examples of violent men who are properly “walking in authority.”

“The only thing that is going to save Western civilization is a more aggressive, a more violent Christianity,” he said.

Daubenmire played a clip of Trump shoving aside the prime minister of Montenegro at a recent NATO summit so that he could stand in front of the group of assembled leaders. Daubenmire heaped praise on Trump for showing that “he is large and in charge.”

“Look at him,” Daubenmire screamed gleefully while watching the clip. “They’re all little puppies, ain’t nobody barking at him … He’s walking in authority. He walked to the front and center and they all know it, too, man. He just spanked them all.”

Trump’s behavior is an example for the church, Daubenmire said. “The Lord is showing us a picture of the authority we should be walking in.”

Daubenmire then cited Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s assault on a reporter the day before he won a special election in Montana as another example for the church.

Humanists Laura Lacole and Eunan O’Kane have had their hearing in their challenge to gain legal recognition for their humanist marriage ceremony, which is due to take place next month. The one-day hearing took place at Belfast’s High Court, with the outcome to be announced shortly. If successful, it is hoped that humanist weddings would gain recognition in Northern Ireland as legal marriages. Model Laura and Leeds United/Republic of Ireland midfielder Eunan are supported by Humanists UK and its section Northern Ireland Humanists in bringing the case.

Legal recognition has already had a transformative effect on Scottish and Irish society. In Scotland, humanist marriages gained legal recognition in 2005, and have risen in number from 80 in the first year to over 4,300 in 2015, overtaking the Church of Scotland in the process. In the Republic of Ireland, humanist marriages gained legal recognition in 2012. In 2015 around six percent of legal marriages were humanist, more than three times as many as there were (Protestant) Church of Ireland marriages.

The case has been taken on human rights grounds, targeting the discriminatory law that means that religious people are able to have legal marriage ceremonies in line with their beliefs, but …read more

Wayne Allyn Root: Conservatives Must Hire Special Forces Operatives Who ‘Have Killed People’ To Destroy The Left

Comments Off on Wayne Allyn Root: Conservatives Must Hire Special Forces Operatives Who ‘Have Killed People’ To Destroy The Left

Right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trumpobsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root spent a good portion of his radio broadcast yesterday ranting about the need for conservatives to hire special forces operatives who “have killed people” to destroy liberal groups before “our lives are erased.”

Outraged that WorldNetDaily had its Twitter account temporarily suspended for its incessant promotion of the debunked Seth Rich conspiracy theory, Root fumed that conservatives “are all wussies and they don’t understand that we have to fight back so viciously and we have to boycott every liberal company in this country.”

Any company that advertises on MSNBC or CNN or in the New York Times, Washington Post or on any liberal website must be universally boycotted by every Trump voter in America, Root said, “before we are taken off the airwaves and our lives are erased.”

Reading from a letter he received from a friend, Root claimed that progressive organizations like Right Wing Watch, Media Matters, and the Center for American Progress have massive offices all over the country filled with staff who do nothing but send emails, letters and make phone calls “to sponsors and newspapers and cable and TV networks …read more

Islamists demand the removal of ALL statues in Bangladesh

Comments Off on Islamists demand the removal of ALL statues in Bangladesh

In April this year a writ was filed with the High Court demanding removal of the statue of Greek goddesses from the Supreme Court premises.

The reason given for the lawsuit was that the statue of Themis, the Greek goddess of Justice, was “unconstitutional” and “unIslamic”.

The authorities, anxious to appease moronic Muslim zealots, began the job of disposing of the statue this week.

But, as is invariably the case, appeasement leads to further demands, and – according to this report – Islamist groups now want statues all across Bangladesh demolished.

Mufti Fakhrul Islam, Youth Affairs Secretary of the Islamist platform, issued the demand while talking to reporters.

We initially demanded for removal of the murti (sculpture) at SC premises as it’s located very close to the National Eidgah where we offer Eid prayers.

And he thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, above, for:

Fulfilling her oath of removing the statue.

He added:

We hope the Prime Minister will take steps to remove all statues across the Muslim-majority country.

Earlier, on April 11, Hasina said she personally did not like the sari-clad statue on Supreme Court premises either.

Later on April 17, Hasina told her cabinet colleagues that she had asked that the statue be removed or relocated to …read more

Do Animals Grieve?

On a blustery overcast morning this past April, Kaeli Swift walked across the campus of the University of Washington toting a weathered, purple-and-white plastic shopping bag. This bag, if found by some unsuspecting student or grounds person, would almost certainly trigger a campuswide panic. Inside Swift had stowed a rubber mask of a grotesque, exaggerated male face—large ears, bulbous nose, silver-whiskered soul patch—a guise that would not look out of place in a 1980s horror film. Also inside: a corpse. That the corpse was only that of a bird hardly made the tattered bag’s combined payload any less creepy.

She tromped through the wet grass in calf-high Sorel snow boots and made her way to the university’s Center for Urban Horticulture, where she’s a teaching assistant for an undergraduate natural history class. Near the Dumpsters and trash cans parked behind the center, Swift found a perfect spot for what she was about to do: perform a ritual that, depending how you look at it, is a couple of years old or a couple million.
