(Hat Tip to A Feather Afrift)


  1. Thanks for the link Ahab, but thanks more for the great link to TWO. Great one.

  2. Sherry -- I've always liked Truth Wins Out. I'm glad you enjoyed the link.

  3. Salon: The right’s latest target: Girl Scout cookies

    Next thing you know they'll be claiming that Planned Parenthood is supplying the Girl Scouts with aborted fetuses to make cookies from. Isn't it obvious that these people just have some weird psychological need to be outraged about something? If they can't find anything they'll make something up.

  4. Interesting article about the 20 most dangerous right wing conservatives, and from Christian leftists. I didn't know there were Christians on the left. Awesome!

    Also, the sex-act morality flow chart is brilliant.

  5. Infidel -- When your belief system and identity rest on opposition to a real or perceived enemy, being outraged about SOMETHING is essential.

    Now I have a mental image of "Snikerdoodle Zygote" cookies alongside the Tagalogs and Mint Thins. o_O

  6. Cognitive Dissenter -- Tom the Dancing Bug is a real gem. I like his social commentary. And I too am pleased that Christian progressives are out there striving for justice.
