A Sober Warning from the Earliest Christians - Tim Challies
Writing of the early church, Bruce Shelley said, “To the Roman, the Christian seemed utterly intolerant and insanely stubborn; worse, he was a self-confessed disloyal citizen.” But that Christian, through all his stubbornness, maintained a clear conscience before God. He was willing to suffer, knowing that he owed far greater loyalty to Christ than to any emperor, to his heavenly nation than any empire. May the same be said for us today.

Alabama's first openly gay legislator makes Facebook threat to expose affairs over Republican same-sex comments | AL.com
"This (is) a time where you find out who are accepting, loving people. To say I am disappointed in Speaker Hubbard comment's and Attorney General Strange choice to appeal the decision is an understatement. I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about 'family values' when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have. I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet OUT," Todd stated in her Facebook post over the weekend.

It was a joke in all seriousness. I fucking wish I could go fight ISIS for the shit they've done, but I don't think a guy with bad asthma in the desert is a good idea for fighting terrorist.

I know! It gave me a good laugh. I would fight them but I fear that the physiological effects of war would really hinder what little skills I have. Oh well.

We should start our own counter terrorist group to fight ISIS.
But I'm pretty pale and don't do too well in the heat myself. Maybe we can take members who all have an excuse not to actually go and fight, we can call the group SISI

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi allegedly killed by US airstrikes : worldnews
Cue plenty of comments about him just being one man and easily replaced, or this just making them madder. Well the Israelis have had plenty of experience in assassinating terrorists and they know the trick - keep killing them until you get bad leaders, then let them fall apart by themselves.
One day you're facing a twenty year terrorist vet mastermind who recites classical Arabic poetry and claims direct descent from Mohammed, five guided missiles later it's Abdul the illiterate goatherd.

Punitive damages | Harvard Gazette
While crime rates have fallen 45 percent since 1990, the memo said that the incarceration rate is now at a “historically unprecedented level,” jumping 222 percent between 1980 and 2012. An African-American man who never graduated from high school has a 70 percent likelihood of being imprisoned by his mid-30s; for similarly educated white men, the rate is about 15 percent.
