It may be 2004 in real life, but the church still thinks it's 1204

This is just another reason for why the catholic church is so out of touch with mainstream anything. Who cares if this girl may die if she eats wheat? If jesus didn't eat a rice wafer, then, by god, she can't eat a rice wafer. Wait....Didn't jesus actually have bread and not wafers? Hmm, i'll have to take that contradiction as fact in order to prove my faith. I guess this whole argument is based on the assumption that the bible is a history text and not just a book of fables that can be used as an example of morality. Thank god i gave up religion for lent all those years ago or else i would have to start thinking for myself later in life...or call up Robertson and Falwell for my 25-year reprogramming tune-up.

Links, glorious links! is a fantastic stupid news day. Here's a few links to keep your fun-filled work day full of fun:
Doing what Tiggers do best
Just gimme a week or two...
The US takes a page out of third-world medical books
For those with a conservative palette
Fighting discrimination one value meal at a time

The Secretary who cried al Qaeda

Apparently someone needs to brush up on their kiddie stories....
As cliche as it is for a liberal to allude to a Michael Moore documentary, more and more every day I can't help but agree that Americans are being beat to a psychological pulp. If it's not an orange alert one day, it's a "generalized warning" the next.
My new favorite fear-mercial is the Coppertone campaign about just walking outside and getting skin cancer. (It's actually one of their Flash animations on their home page). This woman talks about how her mother used to let her play outside without suntan lotion, and then when she was 40-something she developed skin cancer. Now she slathers her kids, her husband, herself, and everyone she knows (her dog Killer?) with Coppertone brand lotion (but of course) before they step out of her panic room she calls a home.
