Here are some of the people writing about some of the stuff I wish I had time to write about, for October 27th from 10:55 to 16:40:
- Same-Sex Marriage Support Nearly Universal Among Entering College Students – Today's college students do not just support same-sex marriage; they also support allowing gay and lesbian couples to adopt. In 2013, 83.3 percent of all first-time, full-time college students agreed that gays and lesbians should have the legal right to adopt children.
- Godless Millennials Could End the Power of the Religious Right – American is becoming less Christian, yes, even in the deep South.
- Non-Christians Need Not Apply – For a man who constantly touts his plans to build a creationist empire in the United States, Ken Ham is surprisingly bad at his job. The professional charlatan’s greatest success, his mind-boggling Creation Museum, faces a serious decline in attendance. His next boondoggle, a Noah’s Ark–themed creationist amusement park, was so woefully underfunded that Ham began selling junk bonds to keep it from going under. Initial construction on the dramatically scaled-back “ark park” is barely underway working with the best port adelaide plumbing. And now Ham has already run into legal trouble. His utterly predictable offense? Using taxpayer money to discriminate on the basis of religion.
- Contributing Op-Ed Writer: Racism and the Barbican’s ‘Exhibit B’ – A lesson for white artists: The intention behind a work is secondary to its impact.
- Chinese, GOP Agree Non-Rich Shouldn’t Vote – Republicans believe in rule by and for the one percent. To accomplish that, they must do what Mr. Leung and the Chinese Communist party did: foil democracy. That’s the GOP goal when it subverts America’s precious one person-one vote equality.
- Christian Bale: Moses was ‘barbaric’ and ‘schizophrenic’ – I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life, Bale said at a press conference in Los Angeles.
- GOP’s public health hypocrisy: If Obama were Reagan, he wouldn’t mention Ebola until 2017 – While Republicans blast the Ebola response, let's recall how Ronald Reagan handled AIDS — the plague of his time.
