A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant

In the past I’ve said that I wouldn’t cover Scientology for various reasons, the least of which is the possibility of legal threats. There are already sites that cover the whole strange cult behavior and mysterious occurrences surrounding Scientology. Then there are the sites that cover stuff like Tom Cruise jumping up and down on [...]

Islamic Sign Creators Association Greets Pope In Turkey

The Turkish chapter of the Islamic Sign Creators Association (ISCA) overwhelmed the Pope during his historic visit to Turkey this week.

Christians In The Buff

Arktis brought this humorous story to my attention about one Christian’s crusade to create a 104-acre nudist colony near Belton, South Carolina. While the project is not going over so well with the locals, I wanted to explore the issue a little more. Upon a little Googling, I discovered an interesting Christian group called "Naturist [...]
