The New Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Francis I) Is Anti-Gay

Today's Lady News photo
  • Today, cardinals named Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archibishop of Buenos Aires,  the newest Pope. Pope Francis I, as he will be called, is the first-ever Latin American Pope. I am dismayed to read that Bergoglio has said marriage equality is “a machination of the Father of Lies” (that would be Satan) that seeks to “confuse and deceive the children of God.” [Queerty]

  • Sarah Palin has somehow  gotten another book deal, this time pandering to the tiny amount of people who do not understand that one of America’s founding principles is freedom of religion. A Happy Holiday IS A Merry Christmas, which is out this November, will be a defense of “our faith” and rant about the “politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas.” Is she still a thing?  [U.S. News & World Reports]

Pray Tell: On Joan Rivers And That One Time I Laughed At A Holocaust Joke

Call me a humorless feminist, but I’ve always thought certain subjects were beyond the realm of comedy: Helen Keller, rape, the Holocaust. But then last week I caught a clip of Joan Rivers’ E! show “Fashion Police.” While critiquing a photo of Heidi Klum wearing this dress, Rivers quipped, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.” And then something odd happened. I laughed.

I’m Jewish. So is Joan Rivers. Does being in “the club” mean that it’s okay to laugh at jokes about our own people? One of the reasons I don’t think Holocaust jokes are funny is that they poke fun at people who are victims, and it’s much funnier to laugh at the bullies.

Accused Rapist Meets Women On Christian Dating Site

sean patrick banks

Look, I’m not the world’s most observant Christian. But even I attended enough Sunday school to know that God would totally have said “Thou shalt not rape” had there been room on those tablets for an 11th commandment.

Which is why I feel confident saying that Sean Patrick Banks, 37, of Del Mar, California, who is accused of raping a woman he met on the Christian dating site Christian Mingle, is crappy Christian.  Keep reading »
