    In a surprising, yet reassuring turn of events, Pope Benedict XIV, the head of the Catholic Church has announced that he is willing to excommunicate any and all Catholic Priests who have been rightfully accused of pedophilia while in service to the Catholic Church. "It is my sworn duty to uphold the tenants of the faith which rest securely on the never changing, holy scripture, which speaks succinctly, yet passionately, against sexual sin within the body of Christ." Pope Benedict wrote in a letter addressed to "Fellow Catholics, Christians, and citizens of this great planet." ...

Gibbs did not provide any details about the options, and says the president's decision on troop deployments is still weeks away.

The campaign as of yesterday had generated 52,000 petitions requesting CBS fire Letterman, and it appears that two major advertisers, and a possibly a third, have chosen to withdraw support from CBS over the controversy. John Zeigler,...

    Thank you, John Kerry, for reminding me and the rest of America what an evil alternative you and your party represent for this country. I take a backseat to no one in my disgust for the failure of this president and the Republican Party in addressing some of the critical issues facing America – border security, controlled immigration, government spending, etc. So disenchanted was I – and I'm sure I speak for millions of other Americans – that I have been less than enthusiastic about next Tuesday's election. I asked myself: Does it really make a difference which party governs?...

    The Democrats' failed 2004 presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry, may have just sabotaged his party's highest hopes for the 2006 midterm elections. Karl Rove himself couldn't have engineered a better campaign reminder of the Democrats' utter lack of credibility when it comes to supporting, respecting and leading America's military. Here is what Sen. Kerry told an audience of young people at a campaign event on the Pasadena City College campus on Monday held for losing California Democrat gubernatorial challenger Phil Angelides: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework,...

    A Christmas magic show on British television claiming to recreate miracles – including making a virgin pregnant – has been condemned by Christian groups. "The Magic Of Jesus," broadcast on the independent Channel 4, features illusionists Barry Jones and Stuart McLeod attempting to see if eight New Testament "feats" are possible, reports The Sun newspaper of London. The performers sought to raise a headless corpse from the dead, cure a blind person, feed 5,000 soccer fans with five loaves and two fishes and walk on water, the paper said, but angry Christian leaders said Jones and McLeod are dishonest....

    University students have voted to ban the Bible because they believe it could offend non-Christians. Stirling University Students’ Association (SUSA) has voted to remove up to 6,000 copies of the Gideon Bible from more than 2,000 halls of residence rooms. A motion to have them withdrawn was passed by 15-1 at a recent meeting of student council. Seven members abstained. Citing the Scottish Executive’s One Scotland Many Cultures campaign, the students said representing one faith was not in the spirit of equality. Al Wilson, president of the SUSA, said: “The one thing the students have come up with is that...

    A man who was made subject to an Anti-Social Behaviour Order for putting up a sign saying “porking yard” in his pub car park, because it was offensive to Muslims, today described the court action as “a joke”. Leroy Trought, 42, was given a two-year Asbo at a hearing at Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Magistrates ordered him to change the wording of the “porking yard” sign at The Swan With Two Necks in St Judes, Bristol, to “parking yard”. He was ordered not to display any signs that may be threatening, abusive or insulting at the pub, which is...

It will be accompanied by a teaching guide that promotes tolerance of diversity.

    For those of you just waiting for Howard Dean to start making gaffes, see the Saturday Washington Post account of his tour through the party's special-interest caucuses.

For pure, unadulterated Dean, you get this: "You are among the most persecuted people in the history of mankind," Dean tells his first audience, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus. Let's hope the African-American caucus didn't hear that. (Not to mention anyone who remembers the Holocaust, the Huguenots, throwing Christians to the lions...)

Yes, you read that correctly, Cuba is the newest member of the UN's "human rights" panel. It would be funny if it weren't so tragic but think positively--this proves, as if any more proof were needed--that the UN is dangerous for humanity.

The reasons change: weapons of mass destruction, war on terror, freedom and democracy for the people of Iraq, American credibility. All are deceptions.

    Since Left Coast Democrats, led by State Senator John Vasconcellos, have called for a proposed amendment to the California State Constiution that would lower the voting age to 14, I thought I'd go them one better by proposing 14 year olds vote in Democratic primaries starting in 2006. Oh, sure, the March 2004 Democratic proposal said that 16 year olds would count only as half a vote and 14 year olds only as one quarter of a vote. However this language smacks of the shameful and demeaning Three-Fifths of a Person representation clause in the original US Constitution that applied...

    I have been a lifelong Republican. I proudly served as a senior political appointee in the Reagan and elder Bush administrations.

Because of that experience, I believe that he is best qualified to lead our country in an era of fundamental threats to our national security. In 1988, Kerry began an investigation of international drug connections as chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Operations. He discovered that the...

I believe we could have done better.

If they weren't willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together. The president did nothing.

In delivering the report to Congress yesterday, an administration official, Dr. James R Mahoney, said it reflected "the best possible scientific information" on climate change. Previously, President Bush and other officials had emphasized uncertainties in understanding the causes and consequences of warming as a reason for rejecting binding restrictions on heat-trapping...
