The Islamic State has, believe it or not, released a shocking guidebook on how to treat its female sex slaves. Something out of the dark, middle ages, this guidebook makes your flesh crawl and fill you with disgust.
Despite a significant rise in income inequality in Texas, Gov. Rick Perry (R) is arguing that it’s not something the state ought to be worried about.
“We don’t grapple with that here,” Perry told The Washington Post in a recent interview, while acknowledging that the state’s richest residents have seen the greatest spike in earnings.
“Biblically, the poor are always going to be with us in some form or fashion,” he added, an apparent reference to Mark 14:7.
According to its website, the Westcity Bible Baptist Church is a “family-oriented independent Bible-believing Baptist church”.
An SUV driver accused of deliberately running down a Muslim teenager in Kansas City was charged Friday with first-degree murder in a case that’s being investigated by federal authorities as a possible hate crime.
They should instead just improve mental health care so that nut jobs like these are not a danger to society. It’s not a hate crime, he’s simply batshitinsane.
Apparently, cutting the income of a poor working single mother by 12 percent is good and proper conservative policymaking in 2014. Because immigration.
More worryingly, the amendment seems to take issue with acts from which women more traditionally derive pleasure than men.
“Are there no prisons?” asked Scrooge.
“Plenty of prisons,” said the gentleman, laying down the pen again.
“And the football stadiums?” demanded Scrooge. “Are they still in operation?”
LONDON — The former leader of the right-wing UK Independent Party and one-time advisor to Margaret Thatcher, has declared that gay men have up to 20,000 sexual partners in their “short, miserable lives” before dying young of AIDS-related illnesses.
Okay… “short” lives, “dying young”. Let’s put that at 30, okay?
And, let’s say they start young too… how about at 14?
That gives them 16 years to get to 20.000 partners. That’s 3.42 partners per night. And NEW partners, too, no repeats, or you won’t get to 20.000!
And that’s even before I question how “an orgy every night” is a “miserable” life…
Reporter: What do you think makes a woman want to have an abortion?
State Rep. Jim Buchy (R-Oh): Well, there’s probably a lot of … I’m not a woman so I (laughing) I’m thinking, if I’m a woman, why would I want to get … you know, some of it has to do with economics. A lot of it has to do with economics. I don’t know, I’ve never; it’s a question I’ve never even thought about.
Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt, a radical anti-gay Religious Right activist who brags of having once tried to rid of woman of the “foul spirit of lesbianism” through an exorcism and who openly proclaims that “American law needs to reflect God’s law” and that our foreign policy must be based on the Bible, won election to the Colorado House of Representatives last night.
Klingenschmitt, who wrote a book about how President Obama is possessed by demons and once performed an exorcism of Obama, ran an utterly embarrassing campaign yet nonetheless managed to defeat his Democratic opponent by nearly 40 points.
Since Klingenschmitt is now officially an elected Republican legislator, it seems like a good opportunity to take a look back at the radical views he will now be bringing into the Colorado legislature.
Klingenschmitt is a viciously anti-gay theocrat who believes that gay people “want your soul” and may sexually abuse their own children, which is why he says they should face government discrimination since only people who are going to heaven are entitled to equal treatment by the government
Green MP Steffan Browning has been stripped of one of his portfolios after he suggested homeopathy could be trialled for curing Ebola.
Greens co-leader Metiria Turei said the party caucus had decided to remove Mr Browning’s responsibility for the natural health portfolio.
The portfolio would be merged into the health portfolio, which is held by Kevin Hague.
Mrs Turei said the demotion sent a signal that the Green Party took an evidence-based approach to health issues, especially public health issues.
Today, Louisiana state health officials asked anyone who has traveled to Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea in the past 21 days, or has treated Ebola patients elsewhere, to stay away from the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH), which begins on Sunday in New Orleans.
So fear of Ebola now hinders research of Ebola. That is just plain stupid. And let’s not forget these other tropical diseases, like malaria.
You have more chance of being run over by a snowmobile on Miami beach than you do of catching Ebola, yet somebody dies of malaria every 60 seconds…
“Since church ministers declared Ebola was a plague sent by God to punish sodomy in Liberia, the violence towards gays has escalated. They’re even asking for the death penalty. We’re living in fear,” Ponpon told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by telephone from Monrovia.
The California government and a nonprofit will pay a Shasta County atheist nearly $2 million for violating his civil rights when he was sent back to prison for taking issue with a religious drug-treatment program while on parole.
Barry Hazle Jr. and his attorney, John G. Heller, announced the settlement this morning at a press conference in San Francisco.
Hazle was imprisoned for just over 100 days after taking issue with the drug-treatment program that centered on submitting one’s fate to a “higher power.” Heller said the program also included prayer and references to God.
But when Hazle asked for another treatment program, he was told Westcare’s 12-step program was the only one available.
Probation officials eventually sent him back to prison at California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, where he had already spent a year on drug possession charges that were overturned by an appeals court, according to court documents. Their decision was based on Hazle allegedly being “disruptive, though in a congenial way, to the staff as well as other students…sort of passive-aggressive,” and needing further treatment, according to court documents.
So his conviction was overturned, basically declaring him innocent, but they sent him back because he didn’t go “Yes Sir!” loudly enough on every thing they said to him?
In a new publication, ISIS justifies its kidnapping of women as sex slaves citing Islamic theology, an interpretation that is rejected by the Muslim world at large as a perversion of Islam.
“One should remember that enslaving the families of the kuffar — the infidels — and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah, or Islamic law,” the group says in an online magazine published Sunday.
The title of the article sums up the ISIS point of view: “The revival (of) slavery before the Hour,” referring to Judgment Day.

Ohio Police say a woman was so upset by the unflattering photo detectives posted to Facebook that she called them and demanded that it be removed, leading to her arrest.
“This is a first for us,” Denise Alex-Bouzounis, public information officer with the Columbus Police Department, told The Huffington Post. “She really didn’t want her face out there for everyone to see.”
Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch.
In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could “harm public order”.
The new laws have largely been brought in to combat the growing number of Saudis travelling to take part in the civil war in Syria, who have previously returned with newfound training and ideas about overthrowing the monarchy.
Yeah, all those atheists joining IS, it’s really a… wait, what?
If Saudi Arabia thought atheists were actually terrorists, they would donate millions to secular political groups.
Consider what the federal government is arguing here. It’s arguing that if you’re arrested for a drug crime, including a crime unserious enough to merit a sentence of probation, the government retains the power to (a) steal your identity, (b) use that identity for drug policing, thus making your name and face known to potentially dangerous criminals, (c) interact with those criminals while posing as you, which could subject you to reprisals from those criminals, (d) expose photos of your family, including children, to those criminals, and (e) do all of this without your consent, and with no regard for your safety or public reputation.
Jose Maria de la Torre Martin, the bishop of the Diocese of Aguascalientes, Mexico, found himself in hot water after criticizing a proposed state law that seeks to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.
The Catholic bishop claimed this week that allowing gay couples to marry will lead to “allowing a man to marry a dog and they can inherit the puppies,” according to local sources.
His obsession with bestiality says so much about him that it’s really disturbing.

In the era before cheap video technology, this would be a story about a police officer who reported that he shot a man during a traffic stop when the man dove into his car to grab a weapon. Absent images, many people would give the police officer the benefit of the doubt, even when the motorist turned out to be unarmed, on the theory that cops have no reason to shoot men who comply with their orders. The motorist’s behavior would be described as erratic and aggressive. People would believe that the cop reasonably feared for his life before shooting his gun.
But this is the era of the dash cam.
In response to the arrests of three law enforcement officials in Oklahoma for sexually assaulting women while on the job, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper told women they can avoid getting raped by a cop if they simply follow traffic laws.
Because a cop who is willing to violate the law to rape a woman would never cross the line of abusing his official power to pull over a law abiding citizen, right?
In one case, the victim told police that Holtzclaw broke into her home in March, kicked out her boyfriend and then forced her to perform sexual acts.
Let me guess – it’s clearly her fault for not having a stronger lock, and for dressing like that in her own home!
