      well, the world is going to die anyways, so why not stop pretending to give a shit? 

      USA! USA!

    no one could have forseen this, right?

    On Wednesday, AL.com reported that Marshae Jones, a 27-year-old woman from Birmingham, Alabama, was indicted on manslaughter charges.

    Her crime? Allegedly instigating a fight that led to her being shot in the stomach and losing her pregnancy. The woman who actually shot her, on the other hand — 23-year-old Ebony Jemison — is walking free after a grand jury rejected the case against her.

      Mental retardation is rife in "the land of the free".

      Religious zealots should be excluded from jury duty by virtue of being demonstrably 'not of sound mind'. Anyone who believes in a magical sky wizard who observes everything people do during their lives in order to judge them upon death, is probably not the best person to be deciding guilt or innocence. Or anything, really.

    The Australian Christian Lobby has hit the 'pause button' on Israel Folau's legal crowd funding efforts after the tally surged past $2 million.

    The sacked Wallabies star, who set a fundraising target of $3 million in his legal fight against Rugby Australia, has agreed to halt the donations on the ACL website after questions were raised over how much Folau might actually need in his unlawful termination battle.

    A bit weird though. It is estimated that legal fees would be about$A300,000.

    oh,yeah. Every Christian signs agreements that they renege on when Jesus talks to them, really? A rugby player does not play if they forget that they were a Christian, and then sues when they remember or convert. They just leave, and accept it. The terms where clear, don't bring the game into illrepute, he knew that gays, etc, all have equal standing, and so disrupting that openly was just breaching his contract.
