I've spent the last few nights hanging with protesters here. The scene is amazing. A lot of people are asking what it's all about, what are the principles, what the protest is against, and part of the beauty and the frustration of it all is that there is no set one thing.
Personally, I would like a list of principles or demands, and I'm not happy with the drafts that have been coming out so far, but the one thing every person down there has in common…Continue
This is pretty inspiring. I would highly recommend taking the time to read it.
Thank you for the opportunity to speak before the court. When I first met Mr. Manross, the sentencing officer who prepared the presentence report, he explained that it was essentially his job to “get to know me.” He said he had to get to know who I really was…Continue

The "I'll Pray for You" is the ultimate conversation ender, or useless phrase thrown in which can be used in a variety of variations: goodbye, you're a fool, oh you're sick that's so sad but I'm not going to do anything of value, (while struggling with demon inside the collar of your shirt) you're... threatening... me... with reason... and I need... a way... out, you're going to war and i'm your honey. It pisses me off. They use it for everything and then what is a normal non-believer…Continue
Couldn't make this stuff up folks. It reads like a trashy romance novel. This is the guy that started the "National Prayer Breakfast" and "National Day of Prayer". C Street in Washington. I love it when…Continue

I'm circumcised, and always thought it was for hygienic reasons (more than the religious ones). Hearing this story makes me really stifle an urge to cry. I shot a sketch yesterday where we make fun of a guy decapitating a dog and we thought we might be called sick. Then someone goes and does something like this for real. So sad.

It can happen to you. Take five minutes and watch my disaster preparedness seminar and arm yourself with the knowledge against the…Continue

made a silly sketch for youtube. Please check it out, and share with friends if you like it. Not safe for work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJPzfok1XDk
I'm so upset about this, and I don't see how any progressive, or supporter of liberty of any kind, can support President Obama, turn a blind eye to these policies yet call themselves politically aware. My article "Cult Politics" was published at OpEdNews.com about a week ago, and I will post that as well below, but read Glenn Greenwald's article, then listen to this poor kid and what happened to him.
Can't make this stuff up, folks. You think if this happened in Rome the Vatican would give him sanction?
Father John Fiala, 52, was arrested last week in Dallas County after he was caught on tape by investigators trying to hire a hit man to kill the teen who's accused Fiala of sexual abuse.
Attorney Tom Rhodes said as shocking as the…Continue

The day the Church dies there will be no sounds of joy among the godless:
No horns blown or parades thrown,
Rejoicing in the streets or marching to the beat,
No angels from Heaven to smite us down,
No Devil to laugh at our descent.
The end of the world will still belong to the sun,
When the Church takes its final breath
On a day no different than today
In a world with problems unfit for gods.
Where a frock is suitable only for Halloween;
A relic of a…
