Religious Animals Come In All Flavors
Washington Post: BANGUI, Central African Republic – “Tens of thousands of Muslims are fleeing to neighboring countries by plane and truck as Christian militias stage brutal attacks, shattering the social fabric of this war-ravaged nation.
In towns and villages as well as here in the capital, Christian vigilantes wielding machetes have killed scores of Muslims, who are a minority here, and burned and looted their houses and mosques in recent days, according to witnesses, aid agencies and peacekeepers. Tens of thousands of Muslims have fled their homes.
The cycle of chaos is fast becoming one of the worst outbreaks of violence along Muslim-Christian fault lines in recent memory in sub-Saharan Africa, tensions that have also plagued countries such as Nigeria and Sudan.” Read more: http://www.washingtonpost.com/
…By Making Them Unnecessary
This week marked the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. Although America still leads the entire western world in abortion, the Center for Disease Control says our rates have been decreasing since 2011. Sex education and easy-to-get birth control were the major factors in helping our numbers go down. Waving bloody signs and cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood were not mentioned as any help at all. Thousands of anti-abortion protestors filled the streets of Washington yesterday to support a watered-down bill that will cut federal funding. The law passed and will be vetoed. (Yawn)
Religious people still refuse to adopt the rational position that PREVENTION is the best solution for unwanted pregnancies. Preventing problems is always better than trying to solve them. How many unwanted pregnancies could they have helped prevent in 41-years if they used common sense?
Do religious people really want to stop abortions – or just slam their religious beliefs down the rest of our throats?
From the Daily Beast: “Some of the European women already in the ranks of the Islamic State are trying to lure their ‘sisters’ to the marriage beds of the caliphate’s holy warriors.
The self-proclaimed Islamic State, formerly known by the acronym ISIS, is actively recruiting Western women and girls. And in the process this “caliphate” that now occupies large swathes of Syria and Iraq is showing, once again, that it’s almost as shrewd with social media as it is ruthless on the battlefield.
The tweets and blogs apparently are written by Western women married to jihadi warriors. They aim to persuade would-be “sisters” in Europe and the United States to travel to the Middle East to help this al-Qaeda spinoff build its extremist vision of an Islamic society.” Read more: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/08/06/the-isis-online-campaign-luring-western-girls-to-jihad.html
Kids bored with Niagara Falls? Yawn at the Washington Monument? Fall asleep at the Sequoias? Maybe they’d like to be sightseers at a different level: the “odd” spots of America. These are the little quirky places on which PBS never does specials. This is REAL Americana and gas is cheap. Click:
