Forcing employers to provide birth control is “like making a Jewish deli sell pork.”
Oh Rick Warren.
I like how he can just open his mouth, let anything fall out, and it makes its way around the Conservative side of the internet in about three hours. He is so not ever on the mark, and here he goes again, equating two things that don’t go together at all.

Why do Hasidic Jews look like this?
More than anything else, Hasidic Jews surprised me most about moving to NYC. I grew up incredibly sheltered and I had only met a handful of Jewish people (that I knew of) my entire life. I had no knowledge of Hasidism and no idea that there was such a large community of Hassidic Jews living right here in NYC until I moved here. ”Who are these women on the train wearing wigs and calf-length skirts? Why are these men wearing black trench coats in the summertime?”
This video by StyleLikeU is a collection of interviews and stories with various Jewish people discussing their heritage and clothing. It’s fascinating and shows a side of the Hasidic community that most people don’t see.

Look at this photo.
Somebody should’ve spent more time in that spelling book and less time reading the Bible.
Re-post if you are proud to know the difference between angles and angels.
(PS What is crown of life? Is that the ring of thorns White Jesus wears in the pictures? I don’t want that. That don’t go with none of my outfits at all.)

Nebraska teen denied abortion for being “not sufficiently mature.”
In Nebraska and 7 other states, minors must receive notarized consent from a parent or guardian in order to obtain an abortion. In special cases, judges will grant an abortion without such permission, given the petitioner can prove abuse or the maturity to make the decision on her own responsibly. A 16-year-old girl in Nebraska has been denied access to an abortion based on her maturity level even though her testimony has shown the logical process any adult would go through.
But of course, the judge is more concerned with another clump of cells retaining the right to grow in into a viable human who will then be born and quickly forgotten about.

Michele Bachmann: “We are in God’s End Times.”
Yet another sad old Christian has decided we’re living in our last days because they’ve run out of options. Michele Bachmann can’t get reelected, her husband is a closet homosexual, the majority of the world hates her — We’re living in our last days! I’ve never met a happy, successful Christian who is predicting that Jesus will come back tomorrow. It’s always some Crabby Patty or everybody’s old black aunt or old black Grandma on nitro-glycerin and pills for her rheumatoid arthritis. All of us have at least one relative who loves to say “You know, we livin our last days.” Right. Ok. I bet you wasn’t saying that when you was 20something and still screwing Grampa. Let me live, OK?

Creationist Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye the Science Guy
I’m sorry, but Ken Ham has the upper hand here. I will always defer to theories about the origin of the universe made by someone who looks like a Star Trek villain, because he is clearly of the future. Unfortunately, Bill Nye isn’t as enlightened as I am and he is just not here for “creation science.”
It’s a pity really. That whole Big Bang business is boring and really slow compared to making men out of mud, and then throwing a woman in there as an afterthought so he’d stop banging all the sheep.
