Pastor Orders His Flock to Beat Gay Couple Arriving At Church

But who could imagine the hate and rage that would motivate a Pastor to instruct deacons and members of his congregation, Grace Fellowship Church in Fruitland, TN. to physically attack a couple arriving in the church parking lot last Wednesday?

Al-Qaeda to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Shut Up, Fool!

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is so prone to spouting lies about people and history that few if any literate citizens of the world take what he has to say seriously any more. The only remaining question many of us have about President Loonie-Tunes: is he really that stupid as to believe the nonsense coming out of his mouth, or, is he just very lame at the propaganda shtick?

New York Times Blatantly Edits Article About Occupy Wall Street To Protect Police (IMAGE)

Today police in New York City allowed protesters from the Occupy Wall Street rallies to march onto the Brooklyn Bridge. Shortly after they arrested hundreds of protesters for blocking traffic on the bridge, even though they’d allowed them to enter it. The New York times published an article on their website, explaining the true nature of what had happened. 20 minutes later they had changed it, to make it seem like the police had no blame in this incident.
