Re: priorities

deacon, this board is an annex of TMF's Political Asylum. It's full of atheists and libruls.

Re: Nuns take opposite sides on contraception

The bait? There's something about such an emphatic denial that smacks of sarcasm, of irony? Of (cough) humor? CCinOC's vitriolic attacks on those who disagree--primarily on religious (or areligious) grounds--don't strike me as a running gag. You [more]

Re: Supremes Strike Down Campaign Contribution L

Sure . . . just what we need: more Vlad-like macho posturing and bulls***. I strongly agree, however, with your notion that Clinton/Bush is a play we don't need to watch again. The next time someone wants to argue that liberals hew relentlessly to [more]
