‘The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den.’  ~ Isaiah 11:8
















  • “The success in a family is first off, a love for God, and secondly, treating each other like you want to be treated,” Jim Bob Duggar said. “Our goal is for each one of our [eighteen] children to be best friends, and everybody working together to serve each other makes that happen.” 




  • Iron Man is the moral clarity guy? For anyone to make that type of judgment demonstrates how little moral clarity they have. This is not moral clarity. This is propaganda–war propaganda of the worst form, because it’s streaming from a Christian mouth.’ 





  • Pollution in the Good Old Days: ‘If it rained while your wash was out on the line, the manure dust in the air soaked into your clothes.’ 




  • Ten previously unreleased photos of the aftermath of the Hiroshima Holocaust have been made available.  But hey, those women and children had it coming to ‘em, right?  [Warning: Graphic photos.] 




  • ‘Dawkins, who derides Christians and says atheists should be called “brights” because they’re so much smarter than religious people, has been heard to complain that Ben Stein duped him, and that he never would have granted the interview if he’d known Stein was “a creationist front.” If he’s so bright, why was he so easily bamboozled? 




  • McCain wants to stay in Iraq until no more Americans are getting killed, no matter how long it takes and how many Americans get killed achieving that goal — that is, the goal of not getting any more Americans killed. And once that goal is achieved, we’ll stay.’ 




  • ‘Wealthy Chinese sat on the sidewalks and even in the streets, weeping and sobbing uncontrollably. Scattered around them were large piles of paper money, in denominations up to $5,000. A government order, in view of rapidly growing inflation, had declared the bills of $5,000 and under to be invalid, and their wealth and life savings had just been abolished.’
