Wolf Blitzer is a $hi+bag propagandist and an AIPAC mouthpiece. He should be deported.

Yes. The cartoon is rubbish too.

I saw that interview briefly on my TV and noticed Rebecca's hesitation but I didn't assume she was embarrassed or brave. I thought Wolf gaffed in assuming she was superstitious and believed in god(s) and she was just trying to think of a diplomatic response.

It seems to me a US cultural thing to think she was brave. Perhaps there's more prejudice like this...

than I thought. Non-belief should be commonplace and entirely respectable - should be the norm in the 21st century, in fact.

The first two paragraphs describes the Wolf Blitzer incident, then the third paragraph goes to the subject of biblical morality, or in this case answering the charge of a lack there of… OK, what is the link between these subjects? Oh there is none.
As someone who goes on rants and is proud of those rants I can say that, my rants are better than this C***. My rants are always above all things are on one subject, this can’t keep on subject is it about Blitzer or is it about apologetics.

This article is ridiculous. It doesn't address the cruelty and intolerance preached in the bible.
