‘FAQ on Christianity’

August 15, 2012

Frank Fleming at PJ Media offers a satirical FAQ about Christianity.  Sample:

How long have Christians been around?

While many people see Christians as a brand new and quite scary thing, records show Christians have been around since at least the 1950s, and maybe even much earlier.

. . .

So they’re like hipsters?

Yes, except everything they do is unironic.

Fleming reminds me a little bit of Dave Barry.

Political Kryptonite

September 3, 2011

Heard on Sean Hannity’s radio show this past Monday, when Hannity was talking about President Obama’s unpopularity dragging many of his fellow Democrats down to defeat in 2010—and in 2012? (quote is approximate):

. . . who then becomes the political equivalent of kryptonite, if you will, for all of them.

I think Political Kryptonite would be a good name for a band.

The government of the state of Minnesota has an Office of Minority and Multicultural Health.  (Since today is April Fools’ Day, I’ll add, as Dave Barry would say, I am not making this up!)  Are you feeling multiculturally healthy today?

I guess it’s no worse than universities’ calling foreign students “international students”, or calling a black person a “diverse individual”.  But “political correctness” doesn’t just arbitrarily substitute one term for another; I think it also erodes our ability to think clearly about the things we’re talking about.
