Video Overnight Distraction- Lady Bursts Into Song on "Divorce Court"


Gawd, I wish I had thought of this during my divorce.

We have a new ad (YEAH!) at the top on the right, so check it out and see what they want you to know. We also have a link up tonight to Amazon and the new book by the President for children. If you are planning to buy it for a beloved child, if you bought it thru that link it would be appreciated. If you wish to support independent bookstores, look here. You can also always make a donation through the PayPal button to the right to help us out or choose to make a monthly donation, and if you are thinking of buying anything from Amazon, if you use the links over to the right, just using one of those links to buy anything gets us a couple pennies a transaction. Thank you!

Our friends at Truthout always have a zillion good posts, but this one by Mike Ludwig caught my eye, in a disturbing, WTF kind of way:

Results of the so-called "Climate Study" leaked to the press, and "353 cadets (almost 1 out of every 5 survey participants) reported having been subjected to unwanted religious proselytizing, and 23 cadets (13 of them Christians) reported living 'in fear of their physical safety' because of their religious beliefs," according to the MRFF.

See what I mean by disturbing?

Mikey Weinstein, a USAFA graduate and MRFF founder, told Truthout that USAFA Superintendent Lt. Gen. Mike Gould was dishonest about the results of the Climate Study, and told the public that everything was fine at the academy without releasing the actual results. He said it's time for a legitimate investigation of the "fundamentalist culture" in the academy.

Nothing like a little daily Bible bullying. It's not like one's god on his/her own wouldn't be intimidating enough, but apparently the Christian Cadets thinks he/she needs a little push.

How American of them to force their religion down their fellow cadets' throats. If that's their idea of joining the military to protect freedoms, they have a pretty perverted idea of what the word "freedoms" means.

An e-mail via an anonymous cadet, in part:

"I keep 'Christian' books and 'Christian' CD's in my room so others will be fooled and leave me alone and not suspect that I'm not actually with the USAFA 'Christianity is the Only Way' program here, even though I consider myself to be a Christian."

Don't pray, don't tell.

"Our daughter was methodically brain washed into believing that she was unsaved in the Catholic religion," the anonymous parents wrote in an email to the MRFF. "During spring break 2009, she urgently asked that we read the Bible everyday in order to 'receive the grace of God and be saved.' This manner of speech took us completely off guard."

Get down and give me 10 Lord Is My Shepherds!

And then pray something can be done about this.
