God News

At Newsweek, there's a pretty good argument for why the opposition to gay marriage isn't biblically sound. As a former student of theology, I would have to say that it is pretty thorough without getting all technical and scholarly. I think that most people know in their hearts and know through reason that you can't pick and choose biblical verses to argue a point because there is usually and equal and opposite argument in another chapter. If you've read the bible and take it as a whole, discovering the actual point, discrimination against any group is frowned upon, and what's more, there are worse sins than homosexuality. The religious right vehemently disagrees with Newsweek and Rob Schenck of Faith and Action thinks that bush is not a very good christian.

When the discussion of President Bush's comment that he doesn't take the bible literally but believes that there was a designer came up on the View, Elizabeth Hasselback compared that to designers of handbags. Can't make it up, baby.

~~~~~~

The Vatican is going to be sued for covering up sex abuse cases by three men who were sexually abused by American clergy.

In order to battle the War on Christmas, public nativity display figures are being outfitted with GPS devices. So ya better watch out.

Yes, there were SUV's on the altar as Bishop Charles Ellis prayed for the future of the American auto industry calling the service, a "Hybrid of Hope" and anointed them with oil. (Oh god. hahahahaha you can't make this up)
