The SPLC is a KKK with Afros and questionable legal procedures instead of hoods and burning crosses. The former is surely less viiolent, but the techniques (fear, intimidation and hated) and the results are the same.

What's Worse Than Horse Slaughter?

You have hit the nail correctly.....we recycle horses, we don't "slaughter" them - one never hears about chickens or fish being "slaughtered". Furthermore, the bleedy-hearts keep trying to accuse us of raising old dobbin for the table......in reality (as I remember it), most horsemeat produced in North America was recycled into pet food.
Yes, it is grossly unfair, and probably racist, sexist and homophobic as well to unfavorablyand prejudicially compare Obama to unfortunate morons who, through no fault of their own, just happen to live in white houses
I agree....The students were not asked to defile the living Jesus (or Mohammed, Buddha or Moses), let alone their spirits or teachings. The lecture (and it's demonstration) was about symbology. At the university level, in a society that values free speech mature adults ought to be able to discuss any topic in a scholarly fashion. This student coud have told the prof, "I'm sorry, my beliefs will not allow me to participate in this experiment" and the lecturer could have said "fine, please observe the rest of the class and join in the discussion later". No "I'll take my baseball and go home" and no "you'll have to go to the principal's office. In sum, I believe, a total waste of time (except for well-paid lawyers).

What good would that do? The GOP's slim majority in the House might be sufficient to get articles of impeachment out of committee and onto the floor itself. But what is likely to happen if the Senate sits to hear a full-blown trial? How many of the sitting Democrat senators do you think would vote to convict? How many Republicans might vote to acquit to avoid the charge of "racism". And, what crimes and misdemeanors do you think would be likely to survive a vigorous defense? Citizenship, and therefore eligibility to be President, may well be one of them - but good luck trying to convince the Senate conclusively on that potential charge - unfortunately.

I certainly agree with the value of learning about what appear to us to be "alien" cultures. Note : I say 'learning about'. In the essay, the writer states that these 14 year-olds are "taught" that Allah is God. Maybe this says a lot more than the literal words. If, by the teen years and high school, a young American is sufficiently uninformed or uneducated that it is necessary to "teach" who or what God is, perhaps the problem is greater than the writer imagined.
The current president being the Blamer-in-Chief.
Good point for further discussion. Am I dreaming, or have fairly recent revelations into the doings of J and RFK disclosed that the "crisis" was somewhat overblown and hijacked by a fawning media??.........I'm referring to what appears to be factual evidence that a "solution" to the crisis had coordinated in advance with top levels of Soviet leadership and was kept under wraps until it could produce the most dramatic impact.
Global warming, rising seas and more powerful natural disasters have joined their unholy pantheon of demons to be exorcised by their annointed savior-du-jour.
