16 ’Av 5768: Sandcastle Day/National Thriftshop Day


Worthy causes of the day: “Make Aid Even Better”, “Stop the Bush/Cheney Assault on Endangered Species”, and “Take Action to Protect America's Endangered Species!”

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. “Green light from mullahs for killing of Shirin Ebadi?”: Considering killing someone on the suspicion that they have committed a capital crime accidental homicide, the penalty being a fine if proven wrong, is a dangerous idea. This promotes killing first and deciding guilt second, thus resulting in innocent people being needlessly killed. This rather misses the point of a justice system.
  3. “Obama, McCain differ on abortion rights”: McCain lays out a clear position on abortion, that “human rights” begin at conception. Unfortunately he can be criticized on the same grounds I used Wednesday in my commentary on an article by Pat Buchanan, that Exodus 21:22 indicates that the unborn have a lower moral status than those who have been born.
  4. “The West's Islamist Infiltrators”: The US government has a hard time collectively getting through their head that Islam is not an religion of peace.
Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is “Seat Belt Irony”. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
