The 12th anniversary of the September 11th bombings is just around the corner and, in what many consider an afront to the memories of those killed, the American Muslim Political Action Committee has scheduled a “Million Muslim March” in the nation’s capital on the anniversary …
President Obama and his party have a big problem talking about Islamists. In fact, former U.S. general Paul Vallely who was the former commanding general of the Pacific Command had this to say: “They are in total denial about radical Islam, about what happened in …
Yesterday, the Catholic Church selected a new pope. He hails from South America and took the name “Francis I” (perhaps from St. Francis of Assisi. Francis I is the first non-European pope in 1,300 years and the first to hail from the American continent. He is …
There have been reports that some Muslim clerics in Egypt are calling for the destruction of the Pyramids which date from pre-Islamic (pagan) times. The pyramids are, for the modern world, a symbol of Egypt but for many Muslims they are evidence of idolatry and …
In America today, the Lilliputians will actively try and take you down if you are anything but a Democrat, a Muslim, or an Atheist. Jews and Christians don’t get a fair shake in the Leftist media unless you’re Madonna wearing a Kabbalah bracelet (but that’s …
In case you missed it, last week it could became legal in Egypt to marry a girl as young as 14 but, more importantly, to have sex with your dead wife as long as you did the deed within six hours of her passing: Egyptian husbands …
Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Americans distrust Mormons because of that whole polygamy thing. In fact, Mormonism might have cost Mitt his victory in South Carolina. Exit polling taken in South Carolina revealed 27% of those polled said that a candidate’s religious affiliation mattered “a great deal” and, out of those 27%, only 9% voted for Mitt.
Protestant church burned by Muslms in Ethiopia. Around the world Muslims are murdering and intimidating Christians and the violence is simply not being covered by the media. In Dushanbe, which is the capital of Tajikistan, a man dressed as Santa was murdered by a mob …
In Afghanistan, the statues stood watch for 1,700 years but under the Islamic rule of the Taliban, they were blown up with dynamite in a day. Now that the Arab Spring is bringing Islamic parties to power in the Middle East, one party wants to destroy the historic pyramids of Giza.
I attend church service once per year… on Christmas morning because my mother goes. When I was in school, I sat in church every Thursday for 14 years. That’s a long time. But I have not been in this habit since 1991.
Although I was raised Episcopalian, my mother’s family is Catholic but the two faiths’ services are essentially the same save for a few phrases and use of Latin.
I won’t lie… discussing religion is not something I particularly enjoy but this article has been bumped too many times to simply go unpublished.
Perhaps because Christmas is upon us the past 10 days turned into “Religious Week in Review” here at Capitol Commentary. We’ve rarely had so many articles on god which is ironic considering I don’t believe in him but I’ve been trying to do my best despite this.
Apparently, women touching cucumbers, bananas, and eggplants might send them into a sexual tizzy because they resemble… a penis. Yes, we said the word: PENIS.
This Wacky Wednesday news come from The Gateway Pundit:
An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.”
I’m not a football fan nor do I follow any sports at all (I used to go to Redskins games when John Riggins played) but San Diego Chargers quaterback Tim Tebow has made it to the outer reaches of my consciousness. Seems that many on the Left (and Atheists, too) are upset, perplexed, even angry that he brings religion into his game.
We will (again) reluctantly wade into the religious culture wars via an article on a friend of Capitol Commentary’s website… Conservative Hideout. The article is titled: It’s the Atheists vs. the Christians in Ellwood City.
The War on Christmas might have peaked a few years ago but tis the season and thus the obligatory “War on Christmas” article. The Happy Holidays jihad is apparently alive and well considering how many Tweats (or are they Twits?), Facebook posts, and blog articles I’ve read on the subject and it’s only December 9th.
