The Imitation of Christ is a Public Safety Violation in Ft. Lauderdale

by Patrick Devlin A 90 year old man was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale for violating the city’s new public safety ordinance as he attempted to bring safety to disenfranchised members of the public.

Christ Needs to Tap One of Those Rich Dudes in Heaven

by Patrick Devlin Biblical financial self-help pitchman Dave Ramsey, whose get-rich-scheme is to convince followers of the first century homeless preacher called Jesus of Nazareth (who advised cult members to “give up all you own and follow me”) that they can become get-rich-quick-Christians by buying his greed absolving screeds and who is featured weekly on the TV station owned by televangelist-presidential candidate-sect leader Pat Robertson, advised viewers recently that, stunningly, Christ was a heretic.

by Patrick Devlin A salute to working women and men in America on Labor Day! Even after 50 years of stagnant wages, union-busting, job outsourcing, and the appalling lapdoggery of politicians in both legacy parties who serve the interests of the modern oligarchs – we are obliged to stand with our fellow workers and acknowledge that our work makes our land. And, remember also that it is not to enrich the selfish wealthy that we work…at least that is what Eugene Debs believed. “I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely […]

Jesus can’t get a few winks and God can’t buy Infiniti

by Patrick Devlin Alarmed at the thought of poor shelter-less citizens invading the public’s well-kept city benches, citizens in Davidson, NC motivated by being “concerned for the safety of the neighborhood” have reported to local officials that a vagrant has set up camp in front of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church. The vagrant, an art installation by Timothy Schmalz, is a life size bronze of a man, sheltering himself against the cold with a makeshift blanket, sleeping on a park bench called “Homeless Jesus”. An indication that the bronze sleeping vagrant is the Christ, the homeless wandering religious philosopher of the […]

Teen Scientist Receives Glowing Review of Science Project about Glowing Seaweed

by Patrick Devlin A Canadian teen has shamed the Canadian Government by exhibiting greater concern for her fellow Albertans than the state when, as part of a science fair project, she demonstrated that imported seafood found in local grocery stores has dangerously high levels of radiation.

Delacruz tested over 300 samples of edible seaweed found […]

Muslim Leaders Issue Fatwah against Critter Killers

Muslim Leaders Issue Fatwah against Critter Killers

by Patrick Devlin The Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI), Indonesia’s highest Islamic clerical body, has issued a fatwah (a religious decree) outlawing the illegal poaching and trafficking of the country’s endangered wildlife species and the wanton decimation of wildlife habitats in the island nation. The religious council deemed illegal hunting of threatened wildlife to be “unethical, immoral and sinful.” Over the course of the past 20 years vast swaths of Indonesian forests have been leveled by lumber interests to make room for palm oil plantations and other agricultural development. The destruction of the nation’s forests has threated the habitat of […]
