Scientists like Bill Nye ("the Science Guy") are warning us to expect even more weather extremes as anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) progresses. Study co-author Paul Ehrlich: "The study shows without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event. There are examples of species all over the world that are essentially the walking dead."

"Religious liberty" as a twisted excuse to deny others' real liberties

You can believe whatever you want, but as the (difficult to attribute) quote goes, your rights end where my nose -- or marriage -- begins.

Or, as better said by +Alex Grossman ...

Love how these backward, bigoted people refuse to abide by the rule of law in our country. How it's a violation of someone's religious beliefs to let two people, not of their faith, commit to each other is simply beyond me. Unless it can be shown that same-sex marriage harms people who are not gay (or who are gay but don’t want to marry), there is no compelling reason for state intervention, and specifically for banning same-sex marriage. The dissenters in Obergefell, and these bigots who refuse to follow the law, missed this rather obvious point.

Simply put, gratuitous interference in other people’s lives is bigotry. The fact that this is often religiously motivated does not make it less so. The U.S. is, thankfully, not a theocracy, and religious disapproval of harmless practices is not an acceptable or proper basis for prohibiting such practices, especially if the practices are highly valued by their practitioners. Same sex couples and the children (mostly straight) that they adopt (or that one of them may have given birth to and the other adopts) derive substantial benefits, both economic and psychological, from marriage. Efforts to deny them those benefits by forbidding same-sex marriage confer no offsetting social benefits—in fact no offsetting benefits at all beyond gratifying feelings of hostility toward gays and lesbians, feelings that feed such assertions as that heterosexual marriage is “degraded” by allowing same-sex couples to “annex” the word marriage to their cohabitation.

This is all so sad. So many millions of dollars and hours have been tossed into legal battles that were a long shot at best. And yet, these evangelical groups have always had financial resources, competent charities, and passionate workers who are more than willing to travel to the ends of the earth to fulfill the very words of Jesus. As another pointed out earlier today, if these evangelical groups collectively gave the most basic causes such as feeding people, giving out clean water, offering shelter, visiting the sick, and helping the prisoners just a fraction of the time and energy that they had devoted to fighting same sex marriage, who knows how many thousands or millions of lives could have been saved.___"Religious liberty" as a twisted excuse to deny others' real liberties

An unfortunate truth about Roof and America

Roof is not an anomaly; his actions are perfectly consistent with the way this country has treated minorities since its birth.

I do have one quibble with this piece, however. It declares: 

"If you are shocked by any aspect of Roof’s story so far—including that he is being described in news outlets as “quiet and soft-spoken” instead of as a terrorist—you are not only willingly obtuse but complicit in his crime."

I wish to disagree. If you are surprised by any aspect of Roof's story… then you are deeply ignorant of what's been going on in this country.

But even though I am unsurprised by what happened, I nonetheless reserve the right to be shocked -- as well as horrified, outraged and all the rest.

I think the rest of the essay is dead-on, however: There is a single conclusion to draw in this moment, and it is that we are here again, because this is exactly who we are.

It seems likely to me that Roof had some sense of this, that his own knowledge and recognition of history helped guide him toward committing this horrific crime.

… At 21-years-old, Roof had fully absorbed the message his country has taught him, just like terrorists in every other country, in every other part of the world.

While our media is certain to attribute Roof’s heinous acts to mental illness (and the cops were careful to take him alive, which even the most innocent of black folks cannot count on), I consider him a particularly apt pupil.

Roof, himself, basically told his victims, "It's your fault that I'm killing you!" 

And now conservatives all over the US are echoing his sick, twisted, deranged and pathetically self-pitying statement. They are crybabies; malicious, vindictive, ignorant, hateful, racist spoiled brats who cry victim when they're not allowed to trample over the rights -- up to and including taking the lives -- of those they have decided in their perverse worldview they don't like.

thanks, +Pamela Zuppo 

Louisiana Governor and passive presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal inserted the shruggie icon into the debate, averring that we should defer to the expertise of police detectives in sussing out the connection between Roof’s documented history of racist sympathies and his perhaps coincidental murdering of black people: “Law enforcement will figure out what his so-called motivations were.”

South Carolina Senator and presidential candidate Lindsey Graham pointed out that it’s Christians who are the serial killer flavor of the month: “It’s 2015, there are people out there looking for Christians to kill them.” His fellow campaign traveler Rick Santorum opined that the slaughter was part of a larger “assault on religious liberty.” And Rand Paul blamed the massacre on “people not understanding where salvation comes from.”

Fox & Friends couldn’t help dumbing down the debate by framing it simply as an “Attack on Faith,” while anchor Steve Doocy wondered aloud how people could “unbelievably” “call it a hate crime.”

This is, of course, nonsense. The massacre was not an attack on faith. According to witnesses, Roof stated his goals and motivations as he committed the crime. He told the victims, “You’re raping our women and taking over the country. You have to go.” By Friday morning, CNN was reporting that he confessed he had wanted to start a race war.

The reliance on culture-war narratives rings even more hollow. Roof wasn’t some unhinged hippie atheist with contempt for conservative values; a high-school classmate told The Daily Beast that “he had that kind of Southern pride, I guess some would say. Strong conservative beliefs.”

Roof joined white-supremacy groups, not the American Civil Liberties Union. He didn’t even ask some Christians to bake a cake for a gay wedding; he opened fire on a bunch of black people after watching them at Bible study.

So how can we explain conservatives’ misidentification of Roof’s motives? Could it be an overzealous application of “allegedly” to describe what happened (Perhaps they take so seriously the idea that Roof is innocent until proven guilty, they’re acting as his lawyers.) Then again, conservatives seem to be concerned about due process only in very specific instances. It’s not as if Roof has been accused of campus sexual assault.

No, the problem here is not that GOP politicians blame the victims. It’s that these days they desperately need to believe that they are also victims.

*Depicting Roof as just another one of the foot soldiers in the war on Christmas steals unearned legitimacy from black Americans’ struggle on a scale that should give critics of Rachel Dolezal pause. It’s a theft of the Emanuel AME victims’ martyrdom that’s as capricious and as unaccountable as any Iggy Azalea appropriation.___Roof, himself, basically told his victims, "It's your fault that I'm killing you!" 

And now conservatives all over the US are echoing his sick, twisted, deranged and pathetically self-pitying statement. They are crybabies; malicious, vindictive, ignorant, hateful, racist spoiled brats who cry victim when they're not allowed to trample over the rights -- up to and including taking the lives -- of those they have decided in their perverse worldview they don't like.

Pope urges bold cultural revolution to save planet, fix perverse economy that harms poor
VATICAN CITY — In a sweeping environmental manifesto aimed at spurring action, Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he said was a "structurally perverse" economic system in which the rich exploited the poor, turning Earth into an "immense pile of filth."

I'm not religious, but I really do like Pope Francis. It is extremely rare to have someone in a high position of authority bucking the establishment to reach out directly to the people for bold action and reform. It takes a lot of strength of character, bravery, and willpower to maintain this when you're on top. 

In any case, protecting Planet Earth should be a moral imperative for all humans, and we need to learn to shift our economy from a system that impoverishes everyone so the rich can live more lavish lifestyles. His message is spot on here.

White man kills nine African Americans in SC

Phrases not used in the article: "terrorism", "thug", "racially-motivated", although the phrase "hate crime" was used (once); also used was "deranged".

So instead of being a dangerous racist thug, terrorist or menace (words that would have been used had the shooter been black or muslim), this white shooter was "deranged". In other words, "he's not a member of a dangerous group (armed-to-the-teeth, ignorant, militant, racist white men), he's just mentally ill."

Way to go, NYT.

This joke would be funnier if it weren't so easy for Americans (and Afghanis, and Pakistanis, and...) to get.

On the origins of birds from dinosaurs

Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny. And sometimes, it works the other way around.

"[Sanders] suggested that if the media are going to refer to him as a socialist, journalists also should affix the label of “capitalist” with every mention of his rivals."

thanks, +Women For Bernie Sanders 

Sanders went on to express irritation with the way journalists slap the "socialist" label on him, as if his embrace of policies common in the democracies of western Europe makes him a radical outlier.
“It is not a radical agenda,” he said. “In virtually every instance, what I am saying is supported by a significant majority of the American people. Yes, it is not supported by the Business Roundtable or the Chamber of Commerce or Wall Street. I maybe old-fashioned enough to believe that Congress might want to be representing a vast majority of our people … and not just the Koch brothers and other campaign contributors.”

He suggested that if the media are going to refer to him as a socialist, journalists also should affix the label of “capitalist” with every mention of his rivals.
