12 Tammuz 5768: International Dadaism Month/Saint Swithin’s Day

Greetings.

Worthy causes of the day: “Tell your Senator that NOW is the time to abolish the HIV Travel Ban!” and “Help Unleash a New Energy Future Today”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. “What does the pope do on his day off?” Nothing actually wrong here. It basically notes that popes are human, too.
  2. “UZBEKISTAN: Fifteen year sentence for reading 'prohibited' Christian literature?”: This is one of many articles coming out these days on persecution of people for their religion, often any religion, in the former Soviet Union and China. I am getting severely disgusted at the constant bureaucratic/political games being played, often taking the form of determining what is and what is not legitimate or necessary in someone else’s religion.  This is, of course, unjustifiable, especially when the party making the decisions is a hostile party.  On a planet which practically every country has supposedly agreed to support religious freedom, it is inexcusable that such travesties should still be happening.
Today’s news and commentary, some of which Barry is responsible for:Today’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is “Parental IQ versus Child’s Age”. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
