Christian Broadcasting Network Warns Against 'Demonic' Halloween Candy

I attend a very small Presbyterian church. Last Sunday during the 'children's sermon', the pastor told the three children that sugar was a poison. The Sunday School teacher had given each child a bag of candy that morning. Too bad they didn't get the memo about the witches sooner, it could have been really interesting!!

Keith Bardwell Explains Refusal To Perform Interracial Marriage (VIDEO)

This is the racist attitude: "I'm sorry that I offended the couple, but I did help them and tell them who to go to... I don't see what the problem is now."

I understand him being concerned about the children not being accepted, one of them might become President and end up not being accepted by nearly a third of the country. But that aside, his ignorance is on display with his assumption that an "apology" makes everything alright and leaves him free to repeat the insult over and over again.

He is right about one thing, there is no problem now. The happy couple, in exposing this buffoon, is simply returning his "tell them who to go to" favor by enlisting the support of a few million of their fellow citizens to tell him "where to go."

Interracial Couple Denied Marriage License By Louisiana Judge

I have a daughter who is in an interracial relationship in Louisiana and this type of stupidity really burns me. I keep hoping that someday the "deep south" will join the civilized world, but apparently not much has changed here in the last 60 years.

Apparently it hasn't dawned on this doofus who the President is, or that his "legal" underpinning was stripped away 40 years ago.

Sounds like a veiled threat to me. In light of that, let's pass a single payer plan and cut the blackmailers out of the picture entirely.

Anita Dunn: Fox News An Outlet For GOP Propaganda

Hear, hear! The White House has called it like it is. Fox News is aptly named. The fox, in fable, is portrayed as sly and deceitful, and Fox News has been sly and deceitful since its founding, a true reflection of the head of it's news division, Roger Ailes. Ailes was one of the architects of the "Reagan Coalition" which completed its coup in 1980, and the god-father of the rabid partisanship that has spoiled political discourse in this country and weakened our republic. Fox News is not, nor has it ever been, a "news" channel. It is a propaganda network, not so much for the Republican Party as it is for the Neo-Conservative movement.

Obama's Nobel Prize Inspires Conservative Outrage And Confusion

Sour grapes make bitter whine...

Maybe those whose p@nties are in a wad over this should follow their own advice from a few years back... "If you hate this country and its [duly elected] president so much, why don't you just leave?" I'll gladly help them pack.
