    If you've been following the news this week, you'd get the impression that America is a scandal-plagued nation. Scandals to the right of us, scandals to the left of us. Take your pick. There’s the media assault on GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, the deadly "Fast and Furious" federal gun-running case, the Solyndra solar loan fiasco, the collapse of MF Global, led by former Democratic N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine and, of course, the deeply disturbing allegations of child sexual abuse at Penn State. But the real scandal isn’t any one of those. It’s how journalists pick and choose which controversies...

    Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) is one of the most hated companies in America — and for good reason. BAC stock is down 50% this year and over 85% from its 2008 peak. Bank of America plans on instating a $5-per-month debit-card fee at the beginning of next year. It took billions in bailout money while regular Americans continue to face stagnant wages, runaway inflation and no relief from the brutal realities of both the housing market and job market. But apparently Bank of America CEO Bryan Moynihan thinks we are all being a bit too hard on him and his...
  • 'Occupy Wall Street' -- It's Not What They're for, But What They're Against

    Critics of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement complain that the protesters don’t have a policy agenda and, therefore, don’t stand for anything. They're wrong. The key isn’t what protesters are for but rather what they’re against -- the gaping inequality that has poisoned our economy, our politics and our nation. In America today, 400 people have more wealth than the bottom 150 million combined. That’s not because 150 million Americans are pathetically lazy or even unlucky. In fact, Americans have been working harder than ever -- productivity has risen in the last several decades. Big business profits and CEO...

    The Miami Herald ^ | 3/26/11 | Leonard Pitts, Jr.
    OK, put your books away. We’re having a pop quiz. Below are four quotes. Each is from one of two sources: the Bible or the Koran, although, just to make things interesting, there’s also a chance all four are from one book. Two were edited for length and one of those was also edited to remove a religion-specific reference. Your job: identify the holy book of origin. Ready? Go: 1) “ Wherever you encounter [non-believers], kill them, seize them, besiege them, wait for them at every lookout post.” 2) “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to...

    Christianity Today ^ | March 2006 | Sarah Pulliam
    For the next seven weeks, the group Soulforce will test the hospitality of Christian colleges. Some schools have decided withdraw the welcome mat for the national pro-gay activist group, while others are accommodating the protesters with housing and events. Sixteen Christian colleges are preparing for the uninvited guests from what Soulforce is calling Equality Ride. The seven-week bus tour launching today will take 35 gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and straight 18- to 28-year-olds to colleges with behavior codes that Soulforce calls discriminatory. The religious schools Soulforce is protesting specifically ban homosexual behavior along with other non-marital sexual activity. Soulforce will...
