Christian Couple Stiffs Gay Waiter, Leave Note Calling Him "Fag"

What Kind Of Jerk Refuses To Tip A Waiter Because He’s Gay? – Consumerist
Some diners at a Kansas Carrabba’s restaurant allegedly made their own exception to that: “unless you disapprove of the server’s personal life.” There are a lot of questions still unanswered about this incident, like how the customer was 100% certain of his server’s sexual orientation. Here’s what was reportedly written on the credit card slip: Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. Fags do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your fag choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD’s love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you. This sounds over-the-top until you remember that hey, Kansas is the home of the Westboro Baptist Church, a group that uses similar rhetoric. The waiter himself hasn’t come forward and talked to the media, but the customers’ message spread through social media sites. Supporters have been visiting the restaurant, asking to be seated in the waiter’s area, and giving him extra tips.

Hooting rednecks to be charged for toppling 170-million-year-old rock formation

These prize American specimens were concerned that stones who had balanced for 170 million years might fall on a kid. Also, they clearly thought it would be fun to push over a big rock and destroy a bit of American history. Utah Men May Face Charges For Toppling 170 Million Year Old Rock Formation (VIDEO)
Three adult Boy Scout leaders may face charges for toppling an approximately 170-million-year-old rock formation in Utah's Goblin Valley State Park, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday. The men, named on the Tribune YouTube page as Dave Hall, Glenn Taylor and Dylan Taylor, filmed themselves knocking over one of the formations known as "goblins," and cheering after the rocks came down. The video was posted to Facebook and obtained by the Tribune. "Some little kid was about ready to walk down here and die and Glenn saved his life by getting the boulder out of the way," the person taping the event is heard saying in the video. "So it’s all about saving lives here at Goblin Valley." Glenn Taylor, who toppled the formation, told FOX 13 News he regrets his actions. “I wish we would have been smart enough to go get a ranger cause it was wrong of us to be vigilantes, and I’m sorry I did that,” he said. The matter will go before the Boy Scouts, according to FOX 13. “If you’re a felon, you can’t be a scouter and that would break my heart, but I did the crime,” Taylor said.

USA TODAY "Balances" Hundreds Of Scientists With Fossil-Fuel Backed Group

The mainstream media's quest for balance leads it to embrace some toxic bedfellows. USA TODAY "Balances" Hundreds Of Scientists With Fossil-Fuel Backed Group | Blog | Media Matters for America
USA TODAY became the latest mainstream newspaper to incorrectly "balance" the views of the hundreds of scientists behind a major climate report with the the Heartland Institute, a fossil-fuel-funded organization that once compared those who accept climate science to the "Unabomber." In an op-ed published by the newspaper Tuesday, the head of the organization portrayed outright falsehoods as simply "opinion" in order to dismiss the United Nations panel behind the report as a "discredited oracle." The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC), which convenes hundreds of top climate experts from around the world to assess the scientific understanding of climate change, stated in its most recent report that scientists are 95 percent certain that the majority of recent warming is manmade, or about as certain as they are that cigarettes kill. This is an increase from just over 50 percent certainty in 1995, and 66 percent certainty in 2001. Yet the head of the Heartland Institute, Joseph Bast, counterfactually suggested in USA TODAY that "we are no more certain about the impact of man-made greenhouse gases than we were in 1990, or even in 1979." Bast also falsely claimed that the IPCC "admits, but does not explain, why no warming has occurred for the past 15 years." It would be one thing for Bast to claim that he is not convinced by the IPCC's explanation that that the slightly slower rate of atmospheric warming in the last 15 years was likely due to the ocean absorbing much of recent heat, along with other natural factors such as volcanic eruptions. But Bast simply pretended that this explanation does not exist so that he could cling to the myth that short-term variability rebuts the idea of a long-term greenhouse gas signal.
