The Only Advice Romney Needs

Ace of Spades explains what Romney needs to do to win over conservatives: He must stop acting as if it’s possible to win the well-wishes of the institutional left.

Pharisees in Skinny Jeans

Good quote from Jared Wilson: My feeling is that the Bible-thumping, starched suit-wearing, hellfire and brimstone religious people taking the fun out of fundamentalism are becoming fewer and farther between, while the church is brimming with self-righteous hipsters and cooler-than-thous. The Pharisees look like Vampire Weekend now.

Free Porn!

Ha! Just kidding! According to pastor Mark Driscoll, there’s no such thing: But while the majority of searches for porn are for “free porn,” it should come as no surprise that there is no such thing as free porn.
