    WASHINGTON – The venerated journalistic institution the Washington Post, which recently adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” published a column Wednesday by a spokesman for the “Prince of Darkness” who blamed Christianity for slavery and white supremacism. The op-ed by Lucien Greaves, both a defense of satanism and an attack on Christianity, was headlined “I’m a founder of the Satanic Temple. Don’t blame Satan for white supremacy.” Although slavery was historically practiced by virtually every culture in the world and only stopped by Christians, Greaves revives the argument that blames it on Christians. In the op-ed, the self-described co-founder of the Satanic...

    Thousands of people cheered for Republican Donald Trump to stay in the race in Bakersfield, California, Saturday. The crowd, attending the Bakersfield Business Conference, was first asked by Laura Ingraham, one of dozens of guest speakers and editor-in-chief of LifeZette, to cheer if Trump should quit the race. Crickets. Then Ingraham asked the crowd if the GOP nominee should stick it out. Now how many Republicans want him to stay in this race and fight for America? Actually win for America? The crowd erupted with enthusiastic cheers. The response from the attendees, mostly conservative voters, shows a potentially large disconnect...

    Study: Apes Could Make Competent Bartenders An ape in Sweden has demonstrated human-level flavour prediction abilities by memorising cocktail ingredients, according to a recent study. By providing a captive orangutan with its own personal cocktail bar, a group of researchers found that large primates exhibit a type of taste memory thought to be unique to humans. In a new study published in the Animal Cognition journal, researchers at Lund University in Sweden offered Naong, a male orangutan at a Swedish Zoo, three distinct tasting juices cherry, rhubarb and lemon as well as cider apple vinegar. Each in a...

    Onlookers applauded as a suspected arson fire destroyed a planned refugee shelter in eastern Germany, police said Sunday.

Police said that no one was injured but reported that bystanders “commented with derogatory remarks” and showed “unashamed joy” as firefighters struggled to subdue the flames. Police forces ordered three people to leave the scene for obstructing emergency services and detained two “intoxicated 20-year-old locals” for ignoring the order. Investigators believe the fire was caused by arson and are not...

Police alleged that she failed several field sobriety tests, including standing on one foot and...

    New Zealand's First Booze-Free Bar Flops The first alcohol-free bar in New Zealand has been forced to permanently close after just five weeks of trading after no one showed up. Situated in Auckland, Tap Bar which stands for The After Party charged NZ$15 for entry and non-alcoholic drinks started from NZ$5. The venue opened at midnight in the hope it would be a hot spot for customers rolling out of local nightclubs at 4am, but those revellers who did frequent the bar drank only water. We gave it a shot and Auckland drinking culture just didnt tie in...

    Your World anchor Neil Cavuto referenced Scott Walker and noted, "He didn't finish college. So, he doesn't have that prestigious degree. He could be up against an Ivy Leaguer like Hillary Clinton." Ratzenberger zinged, "You know Ivy Leaguers and I know Ivy Leaguers. And I tell you, those are not the people whose houses you rush to after an earthquake." The actor mocked, "It's not like, 'he's got an MBA from Harvard. He'll know what to do!'" - See more at:
