Where are America’s moral clarity and outrage? Where is the shock and awe that will compel President Barack Obama to react to the Christian genocide in Iraq? U.S. Rep.

Christophobia – Crazy Paranoia Until It Happens To You
Image Credit: Father Doyle There is a certain stereotype of the Agnostic/Atheistic Lefty. We think of them slapping a turtle-shaped bumper sticker on their Volvo that reads Darwin and saying to themselves “Ooooh! Burn, God Boy!” I imagine them actually paying Richard Dawkins at least $85 per month to prove that they’re more rational than I am for tithing on any given Sunday. They are | Read More »
