Prayers Didn't Cure Rush Limbaugh's Cancer
Who wants to tell this overconfident preacher?
Newsweek published an article yesterday by Paul Glader, a professor at The King’s College in New York City, titled “How the Pandemic Forces Leftists and Atheists to Make Peace with Home-Schooling.” Glader uses the piece to straw man atheists as homeschooling haters who disapprove of religion within curriculum and are “afraid of children having more time with their parents in general.” Inadvertently, Glader highlights the same complaints secularists have about the lack of oversight in homeschooling as the reason he feels his own homeschooling education failed him and his sister.I keep coming back to the fact that this dude, WHO RUNS A COLLEGE JOURNALISM PROGRAM, wrote a nearly-2,000 word column that's premised on attacking a position WE DON'T HAVE. And in all those words, he couldn't be find space to include our actual quote or a link to our statement.

Is this malpractice? Back in October, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau claimed to have cured Rush Limbaugh of his lung cancer. Limbaugh died today of that cancer.
Gabriel Newland Dutson, a Utah man who was arrested on rape and assault charges, claims God told him to do it:
During an interview, officers reported Duston appeared to be “suffering from a mental disorder.” He reportedly said that “God told him to do the above actions and was frustrated because he failed.”
“Gabriel Dutson also stated that he knew of a way to solve the issue and that he needed to ‘shoot’ the victim with an arrow,” the affidavit states.
The Republican-controlled Florida legislature has introduced a bill that they believe will prevent school shootings… but it has nothing to do with gun restrictions or mental healthcare accessibility. The “Moment of Silence” bill is just that: a daily 60-second pause in public school curriculum that slyly uses the word “silence” where the conservative legislature would have liked to put “prayer.”
Pro-Trump radio host and author Eric Metaxas gave an interview to the Atlantic where he compared America to Nazi Germany and said he sees himself as “part of a long line of Christians who stood up against grave wrongdoings in history.”
Members of the Washington National Cathedral in D.C. petitioned their church’s dean Randolph Hollerith to revoke a speaking invitation from bigoted pastor Max Lucado, who has warned same-sex marriage would lead to incest and bestiality. Lucado spoke at the church anyway and now Hollerith is dishing out apologies to his congregation. And then Lucado apologized for his past statements against the LGBTQ community.
Now Pastor Greg Farrington thinks they all must be under the spell of “cancel culture,” because it’s unheard of for people to grow and change their minds.
Conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene casually blows a dog whistle for her anti-Semitic followers — and Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies Professor Deborah Lipstadt doesn’t think the Republican Party will get away with embracing her for long.
