    HAITI-JUDGING, GOD'S JUDGMENTS & CHRISTIAN LOVE And yet, we have no right to claim that we know why a disaster like the earthquake in Haiti happened at just that place and at just that moment That depends. This exhortation from Scripture should give all of us pause about glib, surface, carnal, fleshy judgments of others: Luke 19:22 (Amplified Bible) 22He said to the servant, I will judge and condemn you out of your own mouth, you wicked slave! You knew [did you] that I was a stern (hard, severe) man, picking up what I did not lay down, and reaping...

    LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech has banned the sale of a T-shirt bearing the likeness of Michael Vick hanging the dog mascot of rival Texas A&M. The red and black shirts, with text that says "VICK 'EM" on the front in an apparent reference to the Aggies' slogan "Gig 'em," was created by a Tech student who was trying to sell them before Saturday's game in Lubbock. The back of the shirt shows a football player wearing the No. 7 Vick jersey holding a rope with an image of the mascot Reveille at the end of a noose. Vick, who...

    New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D) paid the brother-in-law of his ex-girlfriend $15,000 to quit a Turnpike Authority job last January, the Newark Star Ledger reports. "At the time, reporters had been pressing Corzine's office for answers about [Rocco] Riccio's work record and how he got hired." These revelations add to the scrutiny over numerous gifts Corzine gave Carla Katz, president of the largest state workers union, since their break-up in 2004 -- which Corzine did not disclose when he ran for governor in 2005. Corzine contends the gifts are a personal matter, and says the total was less than...

    If someone attacked your mother, would you be upset? Would you protest? I’m sure you would. Well, the Mother of God is grossly insulted by the University of Virginia’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, which printed a Nativity-like cartoon of Our Lady holding the Infant Jesus beside Saint Joseph on August 24. The figure depicting Saint Joseph says: "Mary…I don't mean to ruin this special moment, but how did you get that bumpy rash?” suggesting a sexually transmitted disease. To which a Mary-figure says, “I swear, it was Immaculately Transmitted.” This is outrageous public blasphemy! Click here to protest now....

    TORONTO (Reuters) - Condoms are very much in style as a fashion accessory at the International AIDS Conference in Toronto, showing up on strait-laced men, shy teenagers and African grandmothers. "There's a great need to de-stigmatize condoms around the world, especially in Africa," said Franck DeRose, executive director of The Condom Project, which aims to get people comfortable about condoms, especially those living in countries where the little piece of latex is considered taboo. To do that, the project has a program that gets people making their own condom art pin. It all starts with a craft table, packaged condoms,...

    From Anne Newman of Operation Outcry: Silent No More (www.operationoutcry.org): "Earlier this week [of May 15, 2005], shock jock Elliot Segal of Washington, DC's radio station DC101 decided it would be hilarious to hold a contest with a prize for the listener who had the most abortions. While this contest was disgusting by its very nature, the offense was compounded because he held the competition on public airwaves during early morning hours, when people are driving to work and bringing their children to school. The 'contest' featured at least one potential statutory rape, two medical assaults and a number of...

Today's 11/27 cartoon in the PAPER carried a note: "TOday's Get Fuzzy strip does not meet our standards for taste, so please enjoy this substitute strip from 2002." So, they showed some strip. Curiosity got me wondering WHAT was so terrible that they had to pull it... So, to www.comics.com I went. HERE is the strip they refused to post. Clearly, a cartoon cat with his "thumbs up" review for the pretty puppy is too much for the Trib...but, they printed the Doonesbury "Watch it Brown Sugar" comment cartoon with President Bush...

    Nearly four decades after he filled the Astrodome for a pair of championship fights, then relinquished his heavyweight boxing title by placing principles ahead of profession, Muhammad Ali will return to Houston next Tuesday to throw out the first pitch for the All-Star Game at Minute Maid Park. Ali's selection was disclosed Wednesday by Ed Goren, the president of Fox Sports, which will broadcast the game Tuesday night. "It should be one of the most historic moments fans will ever see at an All-Star Game," Goren said. This will not be the first time Ali has participated in the opening...

  • Punch-Drunk Love ----Loser Movie with False Reviews

    Punch-Drunk Love is a worthless trash of a movie. It is loaded with vulgarity without purpose, meaningless symbols, relationships without feeling, silliness without humor. It has no redeeming value and is a waste or time and money. For some reason some of the critics -- for example, on Excite or several at Amazon.com gave it good write ups. I believe these people were paid or had relatives in the film. No one could like this completely flawed, boring, worthless movie.

    NEW YORK –– In the almost-anything-goes world of radio, home to Howard Stern and Don Imus, a pair of New York shock jocks discovered what goes too far: sex inside St. Patrick's Cathedral. Opie and Anthony, co-hosts of WNEW-FM's popular afternoon drive-time program, remained off the air for a second day Tuesday while a 350,000-member Catholic group pushed for their station to get its license revoked. The pair allegedly broadcast a live, eyewitness account of a couple having sex in the landmark Manhattan church. "Nothing would make us happier than for WNEW's license to be revoked," said William Donohue, head...
