The Book of Jeremy Corbyn - The New Yorker
"And they hearkened unto the word of Jeremy, and believed. For they said unto themselves, Lo, he bringeth unto us the desire of our hearts. He cometh by bicycle, with a helmet upon his head. And he eateth neither flesh nor fowl, according to the Scriptures. For man cannot live by bread alone, but hummus is quite another matter."

Kenan Malik: "The expressions of solidarity with those slain in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices are impressive. They are also too late. Had journalists and artists and political activists taken a more robust view on free speech over the past 20 years then we may never have come to this."

Men who post on "Women who eat on tubes"
The lackwits who post on "Women Who Eat on Tubes" now have their own group dedicated to them, "Men Who Post on Women Who Eat on Tubes". Sauce for the goose, and all that. The best thread on it is this one, where they take it in turns to pretend to be one of the WWEOT posters: "Misandry privacy too seriously chill lad women only joke reverse, ironic turned silly time sport lift even do you. 2.2 Southampton beer banter opinonated BA Sports Science & Geography. Women rotten upturned collar hate women but Justin Beiber haircut and posh holiday photo. Hat look at my hat look in my photo I am wearing a hat probably. LAD" Indeed.

Why yes, I have spent the past few days exploring the Catholic blogosphere
"Atheists say that it's not necessary to wear green clothing on Saturdays. And I see where they're coming from. Wouldn't it be really convenient to wake up on Saturday and not have to worry about digging through your dresser, looking for your one pair of good green pants? Wouldn't it make life easier? ... But here's the secret that modern society has forgotten: there's more to life than just being comfortable. True, it would be easy not to wear green clothing on Saturday." A nice satire of a certain type of religious blogger.

A Much More Exotic - The bad kind of murder
"A call to restrict porn is, in effect, a call for more women to be murdered. It's a good thing we have a government that's not afraid to take tough decisions.

Starting next week, this LJ account will be syndicated on Comment is Free and Feministing."

Omnipresent G-d (LORD_YHWH) on Twitter
God's on Twitter, with some new commandments. I don't know why these atheists complain about divine hiddeness. "My word is a knife made white by heat, such as that which one uses to cut pastrami." - wisdom for us all there.
