The Economist on Santorum’s mischaracterization and vilification of Kennedy’s remarks on the separation of church and state and the role of religion in the public sphere. Ew, Santorum.
Apparently, the have the same lack of understanding in the U.K. as in the U.S. Court says no official/public prayer at government events, people claim government is limiting their freedom of religion/ability to pray. In the U.S. it’s often followed by a claim that atheists are trying to stop prayer. We don’t actually care if you pray, we just don’t like hearing it at government events. Personally, I think it’s funny that people take such comfort in talking to imaginary friends.
Found this blog via the Secular Student Alliance’s Facebook. Some days really suck for atheists – the blogger highlighted a few stories last week that I missed/didn’t explore.
I didn’t quite finish reading this Economist article about Rick Santorum. It just happens to catch my general sentiment toward Santorum. The more he talks, the more annoying and crazy he sounds. It’s funny that he encouraged Dems to vote in the Michigan primary against Romney – if Santorum wins the nom, Obama is going to win a second term.
I realize I post more about the Republican party than the Democratic party. I’m going to try to change that in the future, but to be fair most of the articles out there right now talk about Republicans, not Democrats. Anyway, “The Possum Republicans” is a clever take on the Republican party.
We need to focus a heck of a lot more resources on finding out why severe food allergies are on the rise, especially since the alternate option seems to be legislating food out of schools. :p
Yes, I am beating this topic to death (I wish everyone else would, too!), but I particularly enjoyed this writer’s analysis of the zombie Muhammad debacle. (I could be really irritating and call it zombieMuhammadgate. Ha.)
The lesson from this article about anticholinergics (a type of drug…or rather a category that many drugs fall into, often because of their side-effects) seems to be that you can’t rely entirely on your doctors to work out the best medication regiments for you – even if they know every single medication you’re on. Be your own advocate and research the medications you take!
ROAR! T. rex had a very strong bite. This was just for fun. 🙂
