This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day - The Daily What
Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) has the authority to order women with “tempting eyes” to cover them up, according to a committee spokesman. Sheikh Motlab al-Nabet was quoted by the Egyptian news website Bikya Masr as saying that a member of the notorious Sharia-enforcing body was acting justly when he ordered a women to cover her “sexy eyes.” The Saudi newspaper al-Watan reported that the woman’s husband was stabbed in the hand twice during an altercation over the decree, and had to be hospitalized.

Beating Babies in the Name of Jesus? The Shady World of Right-Wing 'Discipline' Guides

How common is physical child abuse in the home-schooled-Evangelical crowd? Beating Babies in the Name of Jesus? The Shady World of Right-Wing 'Discipline' Guides | Belief | AlterNet
There is a brutal movement in America that legitimizes child abuse in the name of God. Two stories recently converged to make us pay attention. Last week, a video went viral of a Texas judge brutally whipping his disabled daughter. And on Monday, the New York Times published a story about child deaths in homes that have embraced the teachings of To Train Up a Child, a book by Christian preacher Michael Pearl that advocates using a switch on children as young as six months old. What many people may not realize is that in the evangelical alternative universe of the home school movement, tightly knit church communities and the following of a number of big-time leaders and authors, physical punishment of children has been glorified for years. As the Times illustrates -- "Preaching Virtue of Spanking, Even as Deaths Fuel Debate" -- the books of Michael Pearl and his wife Debi have been found in the homes where several children were killed. They're not the only right-wing Christians who advocate these methods. Some of the most respected evangelical discipline gurus have made beating children not just "respectable" in conservative religious circles, but even turned it into a godly activity. . . .

Millionaire minister pisses everyone off by asking congregation to cook meals for his wife, that his limo driver will pick up

Their church is in bankruptcy proceedings, but they still have limo drivers serving the heads of it. They allegedly also moved ten million bucks from the churhc's accounts into their private accounts. But seriously, asking people to cook you meals and deliver them to your limo driver? What ridiculous aristocratic 1%-er bullshit is that? Food request for Rev. Schuller’s wife sparks outrage | schullers, meals, church - News - The Orange County Register
GARDEN GROVE – An email sent out to members of the Crystal Cathedral congregation requesting meals for founder Robert H. Schuller's wife Arvella, who is ill with pneumonia, is creating mixed feelings of sadness and outrage among members. According to longtime member Jim McDonald, an email was sent out by administrators to Bible study groups as well as church elders, asking that meals for the reverend's wife be dropped off at the cathedral's Tower of Hope where the Schullers' limo drivers will be waiting to pick them up at the designated time. Member Bob Canfield says he was outraged when he got the message. "These are millionaires who have limos and chauffeurs," he said. "Why in God's name would they want the congregants to deliver meals? It's ludicrous." The email states that the Schullers do not want get-well cards sent because they would like to "keep her situation under the radar." "However, they would appreciate meals over the next three to four weeks," the email states. "They are to be sent to the church in order to be transported to Arvella. The limo drivers could pick up the dinners or meet in the Tower Lobby around 4:30 p.m." The message also requests that the meals be low in sodium and include items such as fruit, meats, soup and egg dishes such as quiches. . . .

Fox news reports on an Ohio woman who wants ghosts to stop having sex in her living room, leaving her voicemail messages

So we can all agree that the freaking news should not report on this kind of crap without, y'know, skepticism, right? Reports of ghosts fucking on your couch paired with blurry photos are not evidence. Can't we have a better media?
