  1. Jindal, Catholics, Duggars, purity balls, etc. keep the insanity moving. At least the Irish can be taken seriously.

    1. Jono -- I was so happy when I learned that Ireland voted yes. As for the rest of the articles, the insanity never ends.

  2. The excuse that the Days of 47 organizers won't accept an LGBT group because they're "advocates" is pretty lame. I've been to that parade and it's packed with advocates for the LDS Church and its mission.

    1. Donna -- The reason was homophobia, pure and simple. It's so disappointing.
