…University. It also turned out to be the final day of the scandal-prone Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s professional implosion, much to the delight of liberals and moderates on Twitter, who followed the unfolding trainwreck closely all day. Indeed, the exciting conclusion of the Falwell “pool boy” saga upstaged the first day of the Republican National Convention to some extent, at least on political Twitter. https://twitter.com/RobGeorge/status/129794804221…

Christian Nationalism Was the Loser of Tuesday’s Debate

…ocratic voters who watched the debate. He was followed closely by Biden, Warren, and Buttigieg, with Klobuchar, Bloomberg, and Steyer bringing up the rear.

…ocal LDS Church leaders called Twede into an impromptu Sunday meeting, interrogated him as to whether he was a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”—a phrase often used among Mormons to describe anti- or ex-Mormons who pose as faithful members in an effort to lure others away, and issued Twede a summons to a disciplinary council on charges of “apostasy.” Twede had acknowledged on his blogsite that he had attempted to influence a couple he met at church by em…

…, the #ReLent2016 tag has made more than 25,000 impressions. https://twitter.com/RevSistahGirl/status/697469902442004480 #Relent2016 also has off-line components.

That Jew Died For You… Dot Com

…Jew Died For You.” (Note to self: thatjewdiedforyou.org still available.) It’s like JfJ are PETA now…willing to do anything for publicity. I fully expect them to open a Jesus deli downtown: ThatJewCooksForYou.com As one friend put it: “It’s got potential. Kosher style. Lamb-of-God chops.

Including Bono on Glamour’s “Women of the Year” List is Two Steps Backwards

…that’s intended to lift up women, especially in a year that has been so marred by unapologetic misogyny from the highest ranks of (at least one) major political party. “When a major male rock star who could do anything at all with his life decides to focus on the rights of women and girls worldwide—well, all that’s worth celebrating,” the article concludes.

She looks up, incredulous at the man’s inability to grasp the obvious: “He’s smashing!” Another girl crowds into the frame, as radiantly happy as her friend is distraught. “I kissed his hand!” she gasps, in the grip of some mystical eros. “I kissed his hand!

Reactions to Biden’s Korean-American Secret Service Agent Expose Christian Nationalism’s Anti-Asian Side

…rom office. For Asian Americans like myself, subject this past year to a torrent of physical and verbal abuse, the sight of Biden’s Korean-American secret service agent seemed to augur change. Perhaps we might begin to rest secure in our status as “real” Americans, emblematized in a highly visible member of Biden’s security team. Those paying attention, however, know otherwise. https://twitter.com/JovanHPulitzer/status/1351947576950611972 https://…
