Kingsville: King of Ignorance

Kingsville Texas is the county seat of Kleberg County; in January of 1997 county commissioners unanimously designated "heaven-o" as the county's official greeting.

Okay, I know that's not really breaking news; but I've been on a bit of a separation of church and state kick, so when I stumbled on this I thought I'd share.

So what is wrong with using "hello?" Well it turns out that Leonso Canales Jr. thinks "hello" is a negative greeting due to its… Continue

How Many Gods Are In The Bible?

There's at least a dozen questions I could preface, infer, or imply with this. One of the prevalent ones being xians' belief that the Bible proves the existence of Yahweh. Also worth mentioning is xians' belief that only Yahweh is real, and that all other gods are fake.

Does the Bible ever actually say the others are fake gods? This might just be… Continue

Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and "we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu," he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.

Both Judaism and Islam consider pigs unclean and…

Pick and Choose: Can you get any more granular?

Dyker Neyland believes that "women adorn themselves in modest apparel" means that her 7-year-old daughter Javé should not be required to tuck-in her shirt. Her reasoning: "I don't want her behind showing," Dyker said. "I don't want her body being exposed."

Apparently the part… Continue
