Thank You Sir, I’ll Have Another
Before they went to bed, the townsmen of Sodom, both young and old—all the people to the last man—surrounded the house. They called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have sexual relations with them.”
Oops. Wait. Wrong story. This is right one:
Kim Davis said in an interview: “They told my husband they were going to burn us down while we slept in our home…He’s been told that he would be beaten up and tied up and made to watch them rape me. I have been told that gays should kill me.”

Cue The Mob!
Office Depot has refused to print a flyer “Quick Facts about Planned Parenthood” because, said the timorous spokeshuman, it made “employees feel uncomfortable”.
Naturally, the same “outraged” mob who screeched and screamed and dribbled and gibbered about bakers and pizzerias not baking gmarriage cakes and pies will soon descend upon Office Depot to show them a thing or two. An F-5 Twitter storm! Judges are sure to send Office Depot management to reeducation camps, just like before!
Either that, or a pathetic silence.
My dear fellow Christians, it’s time for some boycotts—while there are still enough of us to have a monetary influence. Office Depot is free to print or not as they wish, just as we are free not to shop there. (Of course, we’re not free not to buy health insurance, so who knows if the government will eventually mandate we print our fliers at Office Depot.)
A Smug Host
You’ll pardon me for being gleeful. I like it when I make accurate predictions. I’ll be smiling like duck on the day they walk me to the guillotine as long I predict the date right.
Seems England has punishingly stupid death taxes, and once the elder sister dies the younger will have to sell the house she shares to pay the taxes. So this Utley fellow makes a plea that the sisters should be allowed to gwed. Hey, why not? What exact argument do you have against this idea? As Utley makes clear, if you accept gmarriage, you must accept that two sisters can gmarry. It’s wuv!
This sort of thing—ahem—was predicted.
You know it’s bad when even lefty academics notice how rotten the foundations have become. “Our federally backed approach to subsidizing higher education through low-interest loans has created perverse incentives with disastrous consequences…When I started out, I believed that government regulation could solve every problem with relatively simple intervention.” The poor dear.
Men outscored women, 8.6 to 7.3, on average. Even when the report authors accounted for the fact that the men who took the survey had more years of education than the women, the gender gap remained, according to the report.
Wait a second. This item doesn’t belong filed under Doom. It’s good news. It proves what some of us scientists have known for a long time: that science is not that important to the daily lives of most people. Do the mating habits or the Chilean water snipe or the mass of quarks shed any light on which grocery store to patronize? No, sir, they do not.
Democracies have the conceit that everybody can learn everything.
This Is Killings Me
George Will—and not for the first time—outs himself as a progressive. He’s all for the execution of civilians who ask to be killed. Wesley Smith, in the pages of the same journal, schools poor Will. Not that it will take. Will, I think, still longs to be seen as relevant to the Powers That Be.
Smith also wrote “Quebec Government Sends ‘Euthanasia Kits’ to Doctors to Kill Their Patients”. They’ll soon, I am guessing, be offering door-to-door service. It’s for your own good.
California Assembly approves right-to-die legislation, but that’s be expected in a state in which the main sport is narcissism. On the other hand, “UK Parliament massively defeats bill to legalize assisted suicide”, which surprised many who thought the UK had all but bled to death from self-inflicted wounds.
Light In The Wallet, Light In The Shoes?
Science asks Could Wealth Inequality Lead to Homosexuality? Their answer, because of wee p-values, is yes. The real answer is of no interest, because no journal would ever publish the answer.
How long until people realize there is no such thing as a “homosexual” person, as a kind of creature not quite human, but something else? See the first item for a big hint.
It’s For Your Own Good
Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me — it is actually right in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States.
If the World wants it, it must be a good thing, right?
