"Keep your rosaries off my ovaries" has rhyme but lacks reason.  +James Milliken 's series "Abortion Myths" is reasonable, informative, and thought provoking.  It only lacks rhyme, song, and dance.

If the Ayatollah Khomeini had not called for the killing of Salman
Rushdie, I would never have read The Satanic Verses .  It was not a
great book; it was not even a memorable book.  But it did not seem to
me a very bad book, either; it did not depict Mohammed in a bad light,
and I don't understand what the fuss was all about.  Why get all
bothered about something that happens in a dream?

If the staff of Charlie Hebdo had not been murdered, I would never
have looked at their trashy magazine.  It is very detestable stuff,
and I wish I had not seen it.  I do not wish anyone to reprint it, or
to publish anything similar.  But I have seen it.

Murderers, take note: every time you slay someone or threaten someone
because of what they write, draw, say, dance, sing, or think, you
will arouse my interest in them and in what they have expressed.

Too true, Greg.  The cartoons published by Charlie were actually pretty lame and most were not funny, but today, because of the extreme evil idiots performing as they performed many of us are laughing at just how Biblically stupid human beings can get...again

'... if you approach a given project with the inquisitive attitude that asks "how can I help?" rather than a closed attitude that says "I'm going to help however I want." People in the open source world want to work with people who are genuinely driven to help others.'

A nice GitHub tutorial -- with thanks to +Tapan Prakasht 
 
If you don't already know, GitHub is an incredibly effective way to collaborate on development projects. Providing a place for anyone with an internet connection to have an avenue where they can share code with the world for free (not to mention the robust supporting tools for source inspection and easy viewing of commit histories). GitHub has been adopted by many large open-source projects as their primary home for collaboration and contribution...

"Finally, I find hope for my country in what didn't make the headlines. Although about a third of Americans desperately cling to an antique worldview, the percentage is much less among the young, the educated, the non-WASP, mainstream Protestants - and the Catholics."
 
"I'm an American, and have been paying attention for the last several decades. The way many Americans insist that evolution is Satanic is hard to miss. That's why I'm not 'shocked' by this week's news.

"Even so, I was impressed at how many folks in this country apparently said 'that humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.' The survey results made more sense when I looked at a more detailed report, and I'll get back to that...."

The victims of Boko Haram are not only more numerous than in Charlie Hebdo; in many cases, I'm sure, they are far more innocent and virtuous.

+Brian Gill 's sense of balance always impresses and sometimes inspires me.
 
"...I'm upset when my faith gets described as 'worshiping a cookie.' I was angry about a college professor's photo of a consecrated Host, a page from the Quran, and another book's page: treated as garbage. For that matter, I felt disgust when a preacher burned the Quran.

"Some of that comes from spending my youth in the '60s. When I became a Catholic, however, seeing humanity as one big family was no longer an option: it's a requirement.

"It's easy to demonize those who believe, act, or simply look, different. That doesn't make it right...."

How do we ever manage to understand one another, when the words themselves have bipolar disorder?
Antagonyms. Page revised on January 1, 1999. This is a word I made up to describe a single word that has meanings that contradict each other. My derivation of the word antagonyms is described below. Example of an Antagonym: A current example would be "BAD". There is the normal meaning and the ...

Stupidity, or lack of caution in regard to tyranny ...
 
Stupidity is spreading like a virus.
President Obama said police and spies should not be locked out of encrypted smartphones and messaging apps, taking his first public stance in a simmering battle over private communications in the digital age.
