Yes, "Sharknado 2" is out tonight, but we have the rest of the religion news, including word that the report on Archbishop Nienstedt is done. Plus: Nuns build a house of straw. And Grover Norquist goes to Burning Man. Would you?

  1. “Sharknado 2” is the Second Coming of Sharknado. It’s not really a sequel, it’s simply the return of Sharknado again in glory to eat the living and the dead. I’d say that no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angelfish in heaven, but actually it’s on tonight at 9 ET on Syfy.

  2. Nasim Bahadorani

    Warms my heart to see that Americans will not stand for corporate bullying. Nordstroms obviously has moral and ethical standards in its customer service and I will continue to support them as they support what is right. #Faith matters.

  3. “Pro-Choice”? How about “Pro-Women’s Rights”? That’s what the fight is all about, after all. Why don’t we take it this way: “I’m against misogyny.” Or “I’m for body equality.” A man can do anything he wants with his body, shouldn’t a woman have that right too? What’s next–protesting the removal of live tapeworms from a man’s intestines? Socially and culturally, it’s the SAME THING as a fetus.
