Jewish date: 24 ’Av 5769.
Today’s holidays: Forefeast of the Dormition.
Worthy cause of the day: “Repower America | Email Your Senator”.
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
- Religious oppression never ends: “S Korea deports Falun Gong pair”, “KYRGYZSTAN: 'Don't meet for worship'”, “India hit over religious violence”, “Girl Flees Father for Religious Freedom” (video)
- “Mayoral Candidate Anna Falling Wants Creationism Exhibit”: She wants an exhibit promoting creationism at the zoo in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And she is treating it as a campaign issue. Putting aside the fact that creationism is wrong (as I have noted over and over again), how is this not a violation of separation of church and state?
- “Hamas is conducting a “smile spin” for the West, particularly the United States”
- “Facial Expressions: East Doesn't Meet West”
