Santorum makes me want to throw up

So I’m reading the headlines this afternoon, and I see where Santorum is now saying that JFK’s speech (I’m quoting from the WSJ story) “makes me throw up”. For the record, Santorum is referring to a speech JFK made on Sept 12, 1960. Just what did JFK say that made Santorum puke? Here it is: […]

Why is Darwin still controversial?

I’m just sitting here, minding my own business, peacefully surfing through the local news tonight, when I see this story in the Knoxville News Sentinel.  It’s titled “Knox schools say they don’t teach human evolution, but how the process relates to all life”. The story starts out with this: “We have the purpose of preventing […]

Faith or science?

Stories like this one in the Knoxville News Sentinel today are popular tear jerker’s – kind of like any film with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts – but they make no sense. The story I referenced is headlined “A family’s faith helps them find the best gift of all” and it’s replete with statements like […]

Knoxville Church Shooting Coverage

The Knoxville News Sentinel deleted a lot of comments on its’ story during the day Sunday.  I left a few comments regarding deleting the comments and their coverage of the story in general.  Guess what – my comments were deleted….  Here’s what they posted as a reason this morning: Posted by KNSemily on July 28, […]

Does God Exist?

I was pretty much aimlessly surfing the web tonight when I read this on FoxNews.  I have to admit that I really don’t surf “aimlessly” it’s more like “actively looking for something that’s interesting” if that makes sense. Anyway, I find the arguments around the scientists vs religion question somewhat silly – because it really doesn’t […]

Religious Fanatics Charged with Murder

It’s about time!  As I wrote in a previous post, I think these religious nuts who refuse to get medical care for their kids (they think that God will cure them – no need for doctors or medicine) should be charged with murder.  It looks like that’s going to happen.  According to FoxNews, Parents who […]

Sackcloth and ashes in Birmingham

Ok, here’s the lead in: BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —  Struggling to confront a worsening homicide rate, the mayor of Birmingham asked pastors and citizens Friday to don burlap sacks and ashes Friday in an Old Testament-style sign of biblical repentance. What can you say to that?  Is the mayor a total idiot – or is he simply […]

Congress shall make no law

In reading some of the articles from major media sources regarding Obama’s “historic” speech, all I can say is thank God for the First Amendment!  To give you a sample of what I’ve seen online, take a look at this article from the San Francisco Chronicle. The article says Obama’s “historic” speech has “elevated the […]

Oregon gets it right

According to a story on FoxNews, Oregon is charging a couple with manslaughter after letting their 15 month old daughter die.  They’re another couple of religious fanatics who thought that God would make their daughter well if they prayed for her.  But they also anointed her with oil, so maybe that counts as medical treatment…. I think Oregon […]

Fitna

The film “Fitna” was released on the web today.  It’s here if you want to view it.  A story about it (and the controversy around it) is here on FoxNews.  Here’s another link to the movie. Personally, I think way to many people are way too uptight about religion in general.  God speaks to too […]
