Roundup: Shriveling Weeds and Catching Horses

Sometimes I think it would be fun to play an elaborate hoax on the media just to point out how credulous they are, but I have too much concern for the free speech bloggosphere's credibility to undermine it that way. However, some people have no such concern for their credibility. Then again, after climategate, what hath credibility to do with climate change?

Israeli politicians can face arrest warrants in Britain. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Canada considering legislation that would also allow this?

Would you go to jail for your children? For the right to teach them according to your beliefs? Would you be willing to lose custody of your children rather than compromise?

By the way in a related case in a different country, what on earth does this mean? "Under these plans, even faith schools will have to cover areas such as same sex relationships and contraception. However, governing bodies will still be able to ensure classes reflect the religious ethos of the school." Why do I have this nasty feeling that saying same sex relationships are an abominable perversion might not constitute an acceptable religious ethos?

Class oppression, suppression of initiative, marginalization of women, and all in Thomas the Tank Engine which, for the record, should be (censored? banned?) because of the hateful conservative ideology it indoctrinates small children with. For the record, Barbie shows do not marginalize boys and teaching under-5s that Mommy and Daddy know best so don't try some cute little innovation like eating mashed potatoes with the toilet plunger is horrific. Nazis, Nazis, Double Nazis. P.S. Can I have her job? P.P.S. MCJ, no we are not proud, so please don't rub it in.

If you can excuse me mentioning the Twilight word again... 20 Unfortunate Lessons Girls Learn from Twilight, I agree except for points 11 and 17. I always ask my brothers to do anything mechanical or technical and I don't think you should read most popular novel series. At least not if they include teenage vampire romance. I find year old newspapers much more enlightening.

The Voice of the Martyrs details persecution of Christians in Canada. At the hands of the HRC. See sidebar.

Arrested for Praying While Jewish?
