After warning that marriage equality for gays and lesbians will destroy America, conservative columnist Cal Thomas told Daystar on Monday that public schools are instruments of “the enemy” and warned that Obamacare and the belief in evolution will lead to the deaths of senior citizens.
Fun fact: Cheetahs only attack prey that runs
jesus that is good to know.
Yup, that’s the point you just stay still and let it do whatever the fuck it wants that doesn’t involved you getting eaten.
REALLY FUN FACT for big cats cheetahs are fucking docile as shit
my grandfather ran a cheetah sanctuary in south africa and he’d just lie with them and sleep among them and they’d rub against him and chirp at him they’re big fucking babies
Another Fun Fact: Cheetahs are incredibly nervous animals. One of the (many) reason’s they’re going extinct is that cheetahs are so sensitive and nervous, some of them are literally too nervous to breed. Others will breed, but stress themselves out so much, they’ll lose their cubs.
So zoos with breeding programs had to figure out how to make cheetahs comfortable enough to first of all, get laid and secondly - not spazz themselves into miscarrying.
So what’d they do?
They gave the cheetah’s their very own Service Dogs!
The dogs make them feel safe, protected and secure!
AJHHHHFDDGHH SO PRECIOUS
this post just got so much better
THIS IS OFFICIALLY MY FAVOURITE POST
On April 8, the Philippine Supreme Court upheld a controversial new law that, among other things, would provide free contraceptives to poor women. The ruling is seen as a significant blow to the Catholic Church, which fought hard against the legislation for 15 years. Officially known as the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act, this legislation guarantees universal access to modern contraception methods, sex education, and maternal care.
President Benigno Aquino III defied the powerful Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines and ignored threats of excommunication when he signed the law in December 2012. But before it could take effect, church-backed opponents filed a legal challenge, arguing that most forms of contraception other than church-approved “natural” methods or abstinence are tantamount to abortion, which is forbidden by the Constitution in this overwhelmingly Catholic country.
This week, after deliberating for more than a year, the judges ruled unanimously that the RH Law, as it is called in the Philippines, is “not unconstitutional.”
The unanimous verdict was a surprise. All indications were of a closely and bitterly divided court. But recognizing the profound importance of the case in the Philippines, the 15 justices, it appears, may have reached their own compromise by agreeing to a unanimous decision, but rejecting some parts of the law that most offended the church. (The court tossed out several provisions imposing criminal sanctions against individuals and groups that refused to provide family planning services on religious grounds as well as nullified a provision that would have given minors access to contraceptives without parental consent.)
The Bishops’ Conference, which is accustomed to wielding great influence in most spheres of public life, made the best of what was clearly a disappointment, saying the court had “watered down" the RH Law. But people on the frontlines of the struggle against poverty in the Philippines were elated by the court’s decision.
"I think it is a total victory for the Filipino people. The elimination of certain provisions, we can live with," said Esperanza Cabral, former secretary of the Department of Health and an advocate of the law.

Hey look, it’s the trailer for the documentary I’m featured in!
it’s a little surreal… until seeing this clip I had no idea how central my story was in the film. I’m pretty much humbled and blown away.
Tim Dukeman (potential rapist)
Wes Widner is a self-admitted and unapologetic rapist. He lives in Roswell, Georgia.

My stomach literally hurts from reading this. It actually is making me sick. The idea that someone should have complete and total access to their partner’s body at any time they want is incredibly, incredibly disturbing.
Do these people really think that a husband can’t rape his wife? Like, is that what they’re seriously suggesting? And they’re ok with doing so on a public fucking post?
I’m truly overcome with all kinds of sadness and anger. I know stuff like this shouldn’t surprise me at this point, but I guess the fact that I have tears in my eyes right now is evidence that I still care about all this and I’m not a totally cynical, jaded person yet.
HUGE artifact of our rape culture right here folks, HUGE.
Divorce rate amongst Baptists in general and Southern Baptists in particular are higher than that of the general population in the US. Here’s a recent discussion of the issue.
Who’s got access to this guy? Should you run this past local law enforcement or the FBI as a confession to rape? I’d at least tell the guy to have his wife message me so I can tell her how to put his ass in jail where he’d never bother her again. If he’s “just joking” maybe he’ll at least stfu after LEO’s knock on his door.
