Secular Right | Reality & Reason




No wonder the newspaper business is in trouble. Look at the standard of reporting in this story from the Baltimore Sun:

Police said a 58-year-old man stabbed his teenage son after he refused to take off his hat at church earlier in the day. The father and his 19-year-old son got into an argument on Sunday afternoon. That’s when police said the father went to a car, got a knife and stabbed his son in the left buttock and fled.

The son was taken to University of Maryland Medical Center for treatment. The father’s name was withheld pending his arrest.

They don’t even tell us what denomination church this was!

    Quaker, of course.

    From the location of the stab wound, it is surely some kind of FUNDAMENTalist congregation. [Groan]

    That lovely story brought me more joy than getting an A on my astronomy exam did. Thank you.

    I don’t see the relevance of the story. Another act of moronic violence?
    Because it’s in a church? That’s news? Muslims regularly barricade themselves in mosques and fight from them, daring the opposing force to demolish their “holy places” that they themselves have made targets by their choice.

    Robert the Bruce murders John Comyn on the altar of Dumfries Church and is cronwed King of Scotland. Napolean crowned himself Emperor in the Church of Notre Dame de Paris is 1804.

    So, the edifice, regardless of its nomenclature means – what?

    They don’t even tell us what denomination church this was!

    Maybe it was the Misery Synod of the The Glutheran Church?

    No, the church was ASSyrian Orthodox.

    Hehe. We know it wasn’t a synagogue. Hats are in!
