The Vatican denies that the Pope recently performed an exorcism. Whether he performed an exorcism or not is irrelevant. He is still the leader of an organization that teaches that a fantasy book is the literal truth. Francis is, in his official capacity, the "Antichrist of reason." It’s long overdue that we stop taking seriously those who serve as apologists for delusional thinking.
The most exciting thing about Jason Collins' coming-out announcement is the reaction of others. These days, it's clearly uncool to be homophobic. Or to put it another way: Real men support gay rights. The President of the United States is a real man.

Somebody named "Christian Knowledge" wrote this to me:
Check out this new book about how to find and work with a therapist when you're ready to come out of the closet - FINDING A THERAPIST WHILE FINDING YOURSELF by Vali Hawkins Mitchell, PhD.
When you try to defend an untenable position you wind up making arguments that defy logic. Case in point: Cardinal Dolan, who tells us that “…sexual love is intended [by God] only for a man and woman in marriage, where children can come about naturally.” Extrapolated to its furthest limit this argument means that infertile heterosexual couples who marry, couples beyond the child-bearing years who tie the knot, and straight couples who choose adoption over natural childbirth will pervert God’s intention should they marry.
Rick Santorum blames same-sex marriage on Will & Grace. I hate to agree with Santorum on any issue, but he's partially correct. Culture changes people's thinking. I think Will & Grace and all of the other positive and enlightening cultural portrayals of the LGBT community have helped to make America more rational. Of course Santorum - being an idiot - wouldn't recognize the rationality behind the cultural shift. But even morons hit upon partial truths once in awhile.
A recent NY Times article reported that people who are resistant to addictions of all sorts have larger frontal lobes. As a result, they have greater self-regulatory behavior. And we know that the most successful students have greater self-control. Perhaps the best way to identify gifted students is with a brain scan. MRIs might become our best approach to student selection. I am, BTW, a firm believer that while we should support struggling students all we can, the gifted students will still run this country when they're adults.
