Race, Religion and Terrorism in the Wake Of Boston

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Race, Religion, Terrorism

In the aftermath of the horrific situation in Boston on Monday, all eyes turn to the ultimate question: who did this? No groups have claimed responsibility yet, so if it was a terrorist organization we probably would have known by now, especially given the number of amputations that occurred. I can’t find anything official, but […]

On Herman Cain’s Muslim Remarks

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Religion, Republicans

Over at The Daily Caller, there is a piece up that features Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) commenting on Herman Cain’s famous ‘Muslim litmus test’. In his comments, Rep. Ellison makes the point that: “Well, you got violent Christians and good Christians,” he said. “You got violent Jews and good Jews. You got people of all […]

Mosques, Maxims, Monticello and Mojo

By mw | Related entries in Bloomberg, Civil Liberties, Constitution, News, Obama, Reid, Religion

In America, in matters of religious tolerance, there should be no close calls, no qualification of primary principles, and the first amendment should not be location dependent. I hold no quarter with the distinction of “rights” vs. right which strikes me as a Clintonian parsing for those looking to rationalize making the Cordoba Project move the mosque/cultural center.

Really America? The Mosque Is Why You Disapprove Of Obama?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Obama, Politics, Polls, Religion, WTF?

Note the big drop in the past week. Obama had been bumping along at around pretty much even approval/disapproval, but then he made a principled, correct stand on what religious freedom means to us a nation…and his approval drops? And, by the way, this isn’t even a mosque. It’s a small prayer center inside of […]

New York City Mosque To Move To…New York City

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Islam, New York, New York City, Partisan Hacks, Partisan Nonsense, Religion

I refuse to call it the Ground Zero mosque because, well, it’s not at Ground Zero. It’s close, but it’s not at the site…which I think most people who opposed it think it is. But here’s the thing…looks like it’s moving to another part of the city. From Haaretz: After weeks of heated debate over […]

Glenn Beck: God Is Giving Me A Plan

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Media, Partisan Hacks, Religion, Video

It’s official…he’s turning into a cult leader. And no, I’m not kidding. He’s turning politics isn’t a religious movement. Listen to the ENTIRE audio clip down here or read the partial transcript I provided below. It’s scary how much he’s mixing the intentions of the Founders with those of God. And here’s a partial transcript… […]

Pat Robertson’s Outrageous Haiti Claim And The Way Forward For The Religious Right

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Religion, The World, Video

First, take a look at the video… Listen, I hate to beat up on Pat, especially since he’s not sounding too good these days, but this is more for those folks like Christy (his co-host in the video) than anybody else. Because this kind of nonsense needs to go away once Robertson’s generation passes. Otherwise, […]

Hot girl-on-girl action!

Flipping through the channels last night, I happened upon this programming masterpiece and lingered because two attractive, lingerie-clad women were making out on a bed. The scene ended and the show was REALLY bad so I moved on. My beautiful wife looked up from her laptop and said something to the effect of “WTF is […]

Bush Used Bible To Convince Chirac On Iraq?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Foreign Policy, France, History, Iraq, Religion

Doug points this one out, and if true, well, no wonder France took a pass on backing us in Iraq. French journalist Jean-Claude Maurice recounts the tale in his book release in March, Si Vous le Répétez, Je Démentirai (If You Repeat it, I Will Deny). From Secular Humanism: President George W. Bush told French […]

National Healthcare: Breeding Ground For Terror?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Health Care, Media, Partisan Hacks, Religion, Terrorism, Video

As you can see below, the title of this post was an actual caption on Fox News. So their argument is basically, “Because Universal Health Care brings about more diversity, it’s more likely to attract terrorists because Muslims will fit in and not be noticed. Best to have private practices where white, Christian doctors make […]
