The pope, making some of his most explicit comments on the sexual abuse scandal that has rocked the Church in several countries, also said unequivocally that those responsible should be brought to justice.OK, it is about time you said that, Ratzy. So what's next? Ya gonna help bring them to justice? Somehow, I doubt it.

said Friday that his Democratic rival is further to the left than the only Socialist US senator.
Asked by a reporter for the if McCain, 71, believed Obama was an "extremist," McCain replied:
"That's his voting record. All I said was his voting record... is more to the left than the announced Socialist in the , Bernie Sanders of Vermont," McCain said according to a video of the interview posted online.
"So do I think John McCain is a Nazi?"
I guess I'd have to say, I don't know.
Whenever you hear something that sounds too stupid to be true, visit www.fightthesmears.com to check out the truth.
While current law allows health care providers and professionals to refuse to provide abortions based on their religious beliefs, this provision would threaten the funding of organizations and health facilities if they do not hire people who would refuse to provide birth control and defines abortion so broadly that it would include many types of birth control, including oral contraception.
This is so fucking ridiculous - - it is the type of shit that religion creates. If you don't want to provide legal medical assistance to people who require it, well, then here's an idea, don't become a nurse or a doctor, you stupid shithead! Maybe I'll become a construction worker and then tell the boss that my religion forbids me to use tools. Or I'll get a job as a chef and then tell the boss I cannot cook with any seasoning because my religion forbids it... better yet, I'll go to work at a pizza place but then refuse to put pepperoni on the cheese because I'm Jewish!
And what's with making contraception the equivalent of abortion? Hey, let's go all in, and make it illegal not to fuck every woman you come in contact with... because, well, if you don't fuck her then she can't get pregnant and that is the same as aborting your hypothetical child...
These Bushies are some sick mother fuckers.

I understand John McCain's frustration. Barack Obama is the interesting candidate and many in the media are falling over themselves to cover Obama. Of course, this is a mixed blessing for Obama given the content of some of that coverage (e.g. The New Yorker). But Obama is fresh and different and that is news. McCain has run for president before and there isn't much that is fresh about him (except maybe his newfound conservatism, and that ain't gonna sell magazines, newspapers, and ads).
But back to the sour grapes. McCain visited and earlier this month. Did we hear Obama denigrate these visits, call them "political" or try to weasel into them?
Barack Obama has a dignity that John McCain cannot match.

How utterly stupid is this presidential race going to get?
The Messed-Up Teachings of Jesus
After reading this it is hard to argue that many people actually even know what Jesus taught...
