Judge Rules Anti-Choice Terrorist Can Claim Religious Protection for Conversations with Tiller Murderer

By: Monday April 22, 2013 2:00 pm

On Friday U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten handed anti-choice terrorist Angel Dillard a win, ruling Dillard doesn’t have to disclose “ministerial discussions” she had with Scott Roeder, the man convicted of murdering abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

Marten’s ruling reversed an earlier decision that Dillard’s communications with Roeder were not protected by the ministerial exception because Dillard is not an ordained minister. But Marten held that Dillard was acting as a lay minister and was therefore entitled to the protection. It’s an incredible expansion of the privilege and one which the radical anti-choice community is no doubt taking notice.

Advice Corner: Pat Robertson on ugly wives killing marriage, Allen West on guns and index fingers

By: Sunday January 13, 2013 1:10 pm

Man, scanning headlines on the weekend can result in pulling up some cray-cray stuff. It’s hard to believe that the fossilized Religious Right televangelist Pat Robertson is still alive and kicking. It was even more interesting that he was scanning Maxim mag, saw a query from a teen about the distant relationship of his parents, and decided to offer up some sage advice.

When a hail of bullets extinguished dozens of lives at an elementary school last month, the ugly consequences of the nation’s gun culture shot into the media spotlight.
