In Case You Forgot, Obama is a Christian

by casey

The A.P. ran this story today, in response to a poll that states that the number of Americans who believe that Obama is Muslim has grown from 11% in 2009 to 18%.

I Get a Giggle

by Sam Mulvey

Sometimes, we get comments from people.   Sometimes, they are good.   Sometimes, they are bad.   Sometimes, they are awesome. Egg Head and Beard Face here both have a classic case of SS, or Santa Clause Syndrome. The only reasn they’re atheist-humanist-communists is because they’re mad at God because he gave them egg heads, […]
