Apr 10 2014 - 2:52pm

It was 2007 and we were all gathered around the kitchen table. It was my husband; his parents, Frank and Rachel (not their real names); and me spending a Sunday afternoon catching up. Everyone, it seemed at that time, had just bought a house. Their modest three-bedroom tract home, which they were a year from paying off, was now worth half-a-...

The diminishment of religious persecution

Sorry, my fellow hyperbolists, slavery is not being required to pay income tax. Also, gun control is not what Hitler did to the Jewish people. And the religious right is not being persecuted for their religious beliefs in America in 2014. In order to be persecuted, American Christians would have to endure more than just their own overstatements...

"People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates," said fraction-term governor and noted Putin-watcher Sarah Palin on Fox News' Hannity this week.Russian President Vladimir Putin's beefcake boudoir photography featuring his naked torso...

Don't like food stamps? Raise the minimum wage

Cagle Cartoons, Tina Dupuy
Feb 21 2014 - 12:39pm

Say you're philosophically opposed to food stamps. Let's say you feel better about yourself by calling those who've hit hard times freeloading parasites. Suppose the very idea someone somewhere may be cheating the system is enough for you to support snatching all subsidized sandwiches out of the hands of your fellow Americans. Imagine that right...

Legitimizing rape

Cagle Cartoons, Tina Dupuy
Feb 14 2014 - 12:09pm

The charge of rape is a successful way to smear your enemy. When political agitator Andrew Breitbart was met with Occupy protestors one year at the Conservative Political Action Conference, he started screeching, "Behave yourselves and stop raping people!" Russian President Vladimir Putin used this slander brilliantly when asked if gay athletes...

Separate 'marriage' and state

Cagle Cartoons, Tina Dupuy
Feb 10 2014 - 2:16pm

The problem with our debate about same-sex marriage is in many ways language. The term "marriage" is a religious one. All the dictates as to what a marriage is and who gets to be in a marriage (and how many) are bible-based. We have a religious idea that's sanctioned by the state in the form of regulations (sorry first cousins in 23 states and...

Reproductive rights and The Golden Rule

Cagle Cartoons, Tina Dupuy
Jan 24 2014 - 10:19am

When our government was framed, religion was granted freedom in hopes it would return the favor. Call it the Great American Gamble. Give something authoritative in nature free reign and have faith it won't take over.Here's the primary debate of a free country: When does my freedom trample on your civil liberties? And when do your rights impede my...
