Sarah Palin thinks criticism of violent rhetoric is “blood libel”

Sarah Palin: "America's Enduring Strength" from Sarah Palin on Vimeo. I'm sure you're all aware Sarah Palin finally issued a statement regarding the attempted murder of Gabrielle Giffords, a Democratic Congresswoman who was shot a few days ago in the head.

Shocker: New study finds American adults are dumb

What's got me riled up today? It could be this recent survey by the Pew forum on Religion and Public life found over two thirds of the adult population of the US believes in angels.

I am the first to admit it is often easier and more expedient t ...

How some choose to please God

Some people love the Bible. They receive a form of comfort every time they read a passage they like, and for the most part, it's a fairly innocuous habit. We should not forget, however, that the Bible, when taken as a whole, is an inadequate moral guide for modern society. Kenneth Cummings Jr. learned that lesson only too well, as he lay dying in his home in Pearland, Texas. His murderer, Mark Magnum, who h ...
