Ray and Janay Rice Number Three

I’m sure that Roger Goodell will deny that he has viewed it, but a third video has been released pertaining to the incident in the casino elevator in Atlantic City when former Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice punched his then fiancé. I am no psychologist, but the video displayed curious behavior. While the first two displayed violent actions and the immediate aftermath, the third encourages more questions. After the

Mexico Could be Headed for a Civil War

The Mexican people are gentle and kind. But after suffering through years of government corruption, and multiple murders by the drug cartels, a single brutal incident may be the catalyst which overthrows the government. It is highly possible that Mexico could be headed for a civil war. When a bus with 43 student teachers disappeared, the government claimed that it was an incident involving local officials. New evidence reports that

Bob Jones University Harbors Sex Abusers

In one of the single most disgraceful and irreprehensible revelations of our time, a report finds that the officials at Bob Jones University told victims of sexual abuse that they could not report the crime. They harbored the attackers, and chastised the victims. Bob Jones is an evangelical Christian institution located in Greenville, South Carolina.

Celibacy Recognized as a Problem for Catholic Priests

Commentary by James Turnage If you weren’t raised Catholic, you missed a lot of strangeness, and the innumerable questions which arose. We were discouraged from asking questions about many things; we were told that much of the Church’s beliefs were matters of faith. As we became teenagers, the number of questions, which were mostly kept to ourselves, increased. We were aware that in most religions ministers and rabbis had wives

I suggest that Cheney is crap. Bush was not intelligent

The truth is that police are protected by their

AA’s Dirty Little Secret: the Thirteenth Step

Alcoholics Anonymous has claimed to help thousands of people conquer the evils of ‘daemon rum.’ That may or may not be true; there are no statistics to confirm or deny the claim. The ‘anonymous’ part has revealed a growing problem. Convicted felons often attend meetings, however, under the code of conduct, no member is required to reveal more about him or herself than what exists in their comfort zone. Because
