It's even worse than I thought. The head of the CIA gives classified information to his mistress for the book she was writing about him, lied to the FBI about it, gets only a misdemeanor charge with no prison time, and STILL MAINTAINS A POSITION AS ADVISOR TO THE WHITE HOUSE!!
With prosecutions of whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Thomas Drake, John Kiriakou and several others, the Obama administration is by far the most aggressive in history when it comes to punishing leaks. But is there a double standard when it comes to who is punished and who walks free? That is the question being raised after a lenient plea deal for David Petraeus, the retired four-star general and former head of the CIA. Unlike...

I love that he's not ashamed of what he believes. 
And I love the fact that even though he's a comedian, he's definitely a prophet specially in criticizing society.

Interesting
The arrest, so soon after the epic Paris free speech march, underscores the selectivity and fraud of this week's "free speech" parade. It also shows why those who want to criminalize the ideas they like are at least as dangerous and tyrannical as the ideas they targeted.

"Even though many will claim that the story is an inerrant, infallible account of something that took place two millennia ago, the lack of rigorous adherence to the narrative’s details in nativity scenes, church plays, and movie adaptations betrays the true way people understand and treat the narrative: as a powerful myth—not in the vernacular sense of a “false belief,” but as a sacred, symbolic tale through which Christianity and many of our Christmas traditions are understood.

"Reading the text closely and critically lets us identify some of the traditions and sources that went into its creation. And like many biblical passages, it contains puzzles and questions that are difficult to answer with any certainty. Just as importantly for those with a conservative religious background, it reveals the pitfalls of forcing a literalistic interpretation on a text that is literary and theological in nature."

Exactly.
Another Christmas has come and gone, and it is a time of year when one Bible story stands out above all else—the nativity of Jesus. Despite the deep reverence Christians have for this story, many (...

I am almost finished. It is a real delight as were the others. I heard her speak at the event.

I'm not an evangelical, so I won't play the what-if game regarding evangelicals, but this article's list of what-ifs completely describe my understanding of salvation:

--------

"What if, instead of the way they view it now, evangelical Christians thought of salvation in terms of 'healing' and 'wholeness' and 'liberation'—as salvation is, in fact, primarily depicted in the Gospels?

"What if evangelical Christians thought of salvation as the reclaiming of original blessings, rather than as forgiveness for original sin?

"What if salvation was experienced as a process of growth in love, rather than as a reward for believing a particular doctrine about Jesus?"
