It seems I have some liberal knickers in a knot north of the border.
The left is anything if not predictable. It tickles me to no end when, by way of their utterly unhinged reaction to one of my columns, secular-"progressives" end up proving true the very point I was trying to make.

As ISIS continues to terrorize Iraq, a new threat has been issued against the United States as the spokesman for the group gave an interview last week saying they will fight and "raise the flag of Allah in the White House."
"I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established," Abu Mosa, spokesman for ISIS, told VICE Media in an interview. "Don't be cowards and attack with drones. Instead, send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House."
ISIS controls the Syrian city of Raqqa, which it claims is now the capital of the Islamic caliphate. However, the group has recently been heavily involved in taking over territory in Iraq, attempting to drive out Christians and other minority religious groups in the hope of establishing the Islamic caliphate in that country as well. Over 200,000 Christians have had to flee from their homes in order to seek refuge in Kurdish villages. more >>

Long the domain of church and state officials, in Indiana the solemnization of marriages now can be overseen by people who profess to have no religion at all.
Indiana has opted to not try to delay a decision from a three-judge panel of the Chicago-based United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals allowing for non-theists to officiate weddings. more >>
