    Last Friday, Rev. Robert Jeffress, the Dallas pastor who introduced Gov. Rick Perry at the Values Voter Summit, spoke derisively about the Mormon faith of Mitt Romney, making the case that “Mormonism is a cult.” Two days later, he chided Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism as “false religions.” Last year, Rev. Jeffress said the Roman Catholic Church was the outgrowth of a “corruption” called the “Babylonian mystery.” He continued, “Much of what you see in the Catholic Church today doesn’t come from God’s word. It comes from that cult-like pagan religion. Isn’t that the genius of Satan?” Catholic League president Bill...

When Duncan first presented to the hospital on September 25, he didn’t specify that he’d come from Liberia or even West Africa — the center of the Ebola outbreak. Duncan only said he’d returned from “Africa,” which could’ve meant one of dozens of...

A $39,000 machine called FilmArray was available to the Dallas Presbyterian Hospital when Duncan came in with a fever. The device has a high success rate for detecting Ebola in less than one hour, but sat idly because current federal guidelines prevented the hospital from obtaining a specific “kit” needed for screening, the military website Defense One reported Thursday.

    The Ebola crisis has gripped the American media, and by extension the imagination of the public, punctuated by breathless pronouncements from TV news reporters of the medical status of actual and potential victims of the disease; hysteria-inducing magazine covers, like this issue of Bloomberg Businessweek sporting the message “Ebola Is Coming” in blood- smeared letters; and Facebook feeds dominated by click-bait images of microscopic photos of the virus with eerie back-lit tangles of fat worms symbolizing the foreign bodies that could invade us all. But the foreign bodies of the Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to have...

    The President of Liberia apologized to the Mayor of Dallas, saying she felt 'responsibility' for Ebola spreading from Africa to the United States. Ellen Johnson Sirlead, president of the nation hardest-hit by Ebola, called Mike Rawlings to express regret that the killer virus had crossed the Atlantic.

He was taken in to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where he died after infecting at least two nurses, who are being treated in secure facilities. Rawlings revealed the...
