 War-torn Middle East seeks solace in religion

Funny stuff from The Onion:

Arabs and Israelis alike are embracing their faith as a way to make sense of the violence from which there seems to be no escape....

"It's always frightening to be reminded of your own mortality, as we all were this past Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday," Hezbollah commander Mahdi al-Zaidi said. "But rather than react irrationally, I looked deep within my faith, consulted the Quran, and by the mercy of Allah, I gained the resolve to oversee a massive airstrike against the enemy."

 Today's quote: Letterman

"According to reports, Fidel Castro is alert and being briefed. And I'm thinking, why didn't we get a president like that?"

~ David Letterman

David can always say the possible jokes ever and they are all outright funny. But he could be very sarcastic indirectly. You know what I mean.

 Court strikes down warrantless wiretaps

A US district court today ruled that the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretap program is unconstitutional:

In an injunction ordered an immediate halt to the program, US District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor tore into warrantless surveillance, which she found "violates the Separation of Powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth Amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III."

The government is also, under the ruling, barred from monitoring Internet communication without warrants.

I bet this goes to the Supremes where Bush's buddies can kill it.

 Christers 'addicted to pornography'

Perhaps this explains why the fundies are obsessed with regulating the sex lives of others. A poll conducted by what bills itself as "the world's most visited Christian website" indicates a surprising number of Christians are addicted to pornography:

"The poll results indicate that 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography," said Clay Jones, founder and President of Second Glance Ministries.

Now in fairness, the poll used a self-selected sample, and is therefore not a scientific study. But since we all know how fundies hate science anyway, we'll let it slide :)

According to the survey, 20% of Christian women say they are addicted to porn. I'm impressed.

You shouldn't be that surprised. Lust is inherent in all of us humans. Individual Christians may not be better than unbelievers--but they are better off. Turning away from one's sins toward God's mercy is a much better option than walking straight into His wrath.

Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.”

My friends, would you sell your right eye for $1 million? How about both of your eyes for $100 million? Then why on earth would you trade your soul for a fleeting glance at a woman? Please, turn from your sins today that God may grant you everlasting life through Jesus Christ His Son. Then read your Bible daily and obey what you read. God never fails to keep His promises.

According to the Transport Security Agency, the laws of physics have changed since last Thursday, rendering lipstick safely non-explosive again. Whew.

Under the new rules, travelers can take up to four ounces of non-prescription medicine, glucose gel for diabetics, solid lipstick and baby food, the agency said.

Of course, a clever terrorist can still ship a crate full of explosives in the cargo hold beneath me because the Republican-controlled Congress won't pass the Safe Skies Cargo Inspection Act.
