Hey genius, guess what? There is no such thing as “only choice.” The very meaning of the word “choice” indicates more than one option. For instance, if I trip on something I have “no choice” but to fall down. However, falling wasn’t really a choice, it’s just what happens. If I had a choice there’d have been an option in which I could trip and not fall. This is never the case with abortion. Sometimes, for some women, it is the BEST choice. What you are advocating is that women are unable to determine the best choice for their individual situations, but that the government is able to do so by limiting women to a single legal option.  That’s not feminist, that’s dictatorial.So stick your thought-terminating doublespeak in a sack.

Alabama’s chief justice: Buddha didn’t create us so First Amendment only protects Christians →

This has been another episode of “Conservatives Actually Know Fuck-All About the Constitution.”

Chief. Justice.

The first half of this is true whether you’re a Buddhist or not. The second part is like the petulant whines of a child making up the rules as he goes along.

But Jews and Muslims also believe in the same god…

No, they really don’t. That’s what people will tell you, but those people are usually pretty ignorant of these religious texts. Each may claim to believe in the same god, but the characteristics of this god in Islam and Judaism and Christianity are so vastly different from each other than anyone with any reading comprehension skills must view these as separate characters. Also, not to state the obvious, but there are more than three religions and plenty of nonbelievers. Oh, not to mention the constitution prevents government from endorsing religion.

Are "rock star pastors" selling gospel or themselves? Internet helps to scrutinize behavior. →

He doesn’t throw televisions out of hotel windows in the manner of bad-boy rock musicians. But he comes close in the rhetorical sense, tossing out insults about gay people, women and his theological rivals.

Another great quote

His salary? Unknown. Who controls church funds? Good luck finding that out. And because of the non-disclosure agreements that Mars Hill pastors and staff members must sign when they depart, little is known about who holds Driscoll accountable on money or any other issue.

While Republicans go overboard in satisfying the whims of their religious base, openly non-religious voters hardly get a hearing from the Democrats. They know we have no choice, so they can get away with it.

Bill O’Reilly Hits ‘Far-Left’ NY Times for Pot Support: ‘It’s About Race, Not Drugs’ | video →

This is obscenely racist, beyond all comprehension. I always called Fox the KKK network hyperbolically, but several instances in these last couple of years have made that a much more literal evaluation.
