(RNS) When they wrote the Southern gospel hit "I'll Fly Away," perhaps they were talking about Anglican eyebrows? All that and more in today's Roundup.


  1. Witness the genius of liberal wisdom, or the lack thereof. Their current narrative of the world:

    Gay sex is not sinful or questionable behavior, because there is no god. They were born that way and can’t help themselves. Pedophilia may or may not have been born that way, is not sinful as there is still no god, but is questionable and therefore wrong as we libturds have proclaimed ourselves the protectors of gays and children, and gay children. As the protectors and arbitors of children and their budding sexuality, we reserve the right to dress them in clothes of the opposite sex, undergo irreversable gender surgery at a young age and introduce superfluous gay characters into their cartoons. But don’t worry, we aren’t “going after” your children, and we are not recruiting them even though we are obviously concerned with guiding the sexual decisions of all children with our actions. If they grow up gay, trans, neutral, bi, we will have a celebration. If they grow up straight they had better support the social conditioning we instilled in them or they are forever “bigots”. If they grow up as pedophiles, we currently suggest rehabilitation therapy, which is inhumane for gays to be subjected to…but not pedophiles….at least until we change our minds like the group of shreaking women we are.

  2. Here’s something tweetable that provokes reflection:

    “We have only enough religion to hate, and not enough religion to love one another.”
    Jonathan Swift, Church of Ireland cathedral dean

  3. At the NOM rally in DC a pastor is calling for all gays to be killed. This is Christianity? This is America?

    • Meanwhile, in american public school an elementary boy at lunch is suspended for pretending a banana is a gun, while down the hall girls are shown how to properly install condoms…..on a banana.

      Liberal america is hell.

      • So this just in, and not surprising. Senior andree lampart of nonnewag high school in conneticut discovered the that conservative websites like the nra, state gop, and many related to christianity are blocked from the schools computers….while the state democrat, islamguide, planned parenthood, pro choice, moms for action and newtown action alliance were not.

        Fair and balanced, right libtards? You all love freedom so much you flat out block it? The main humanist website in america regularly boots commentors who are religious.

        We have observed enough to know what you really are despite what you say. You hate freedom, and absolutely need an oppressive socially regulating form of government to protect you from actual reality and natural consequence.

      • Charles Freeman

        Much better than the alternative. Kids bringing guns to school and girls not knowing how babies are caused? Much better than your conservative theocracy!

        • Its not your job to raise someone else’s child. Any perceived responsibility you feel for doing so comes from you hypocritical and bloated sense of self worth. You voluntarily elect to think you should do this because it makes you feel good, feel worthy. And since you have self elected to do this, you love….and I mean love to the point of giddiness, the idea of being in charge and what can and cannot be taught.

          Face it man, you dont like a free society simply cause it will mean no one will be forced to listen to you. You hate real freedom. It scares you.

          • You just said liberal based censorship is better than the alternative. You are the reason 1984 is no longer fiction.

          • The Great God Pan

            “you love….and I mean love to the point of giddiness, the idea of being in charge and what can and cannot be taught.”

            Yet here you are, complaining about what is being taught and wishing your side got to decide.

            I have found that conservatives universally lack any degree of self-awareness. Hypocrisy and projection are just built-in things with you guys. It’s not merely that you do not recognize them in yourselves, but that you actually cannot.

      • Oh hey a call to murder is unimportant, but school silliness (correcaible) is an outrage. And teaching kids to deny science with a ridiculous claim that the earth is only 6000 years old is OK? The right wing persecution complex is truly reaching clinical proportions.

  4. The Great God Pan

    ” [Opponents of gay marriage] say they’re not rallying against anything or anyone. ”

    The Ku Klux Klan says the same thing. Ask them if they’re a hate group and they’ll tell you they’re not. They don’t hate anyone or oppose anyone, according to them. They just support “the white race.”
