Student newspaper issues amazing response to college president’s victim blaming http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
"... We would do well to remember that students’ levels of drunkenness at the time of an assault does not make them any more or less responsible for what happens to them. Regardless of who you are, what you wear or how much you drank, any violation that occurs is absolutely and solely the perpetrator’s fault. Though the president did not insinuate otherwise, glossing over this essential fact can have negative effects. ..." - WarLord
When Should a Psychiatrist Refuse to Treat a Patient? http://io9.com/the-har...
"... Or maybe they're in a situation very much like Fanon's, where they're told to help people feel better psychologically about a world where white police officers can kill black people under extremely suspicious circumstances, and yet never even stand trial for it. Let's dispense with the subtleties, shall we, and just stare that fact in the face. ..." - WarLord

It's official: The religious right is calling it quits http://theweek.com/article... via @TheWeek
And now First Things, the intellectually formidable monthly magazine that played a decisively important role in formulating the interdenominational and interreligious ideology that once galvanized the religious right, has decided to pick up its marbles and go home. - WarLord
Maybe I'm overstating the significance of a brief article published on the First Things website earlier this week, but I don't think so. Authored by editor R.R. Reno, "A Time to Rend" appears to put the magazine's moral and intellectual weight (which remains considerable on the religious right) behind a movement that calls on churches to cease administering civil marriages. - WarLord

Pope Francis: 'Ideological Christians' Are a 'Serious Illness' | Alternet http://www.alternet.org/pope-fr...
Francis said that ideologies are “rigid.” “When a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought,” Francis said, according to Radio Vatican. - WarLord

Republicans Can’t Stop Obama: Boehner Told He Can’t Defund Immigration Executive Orders http://www.politicususa.com/2014... via @politicususa
The Hill reported, “This agency is entirely self-funded through the fees it collects on various immigration applications,” the committee said in a statement. “Congress does not appropriate funds for any of its operations, including the issuance of immigration status or work permits, with the exception of the ‘E-Verify’ program. Therefore, the appropriations process cannot be used to ‘defund’ the agency.” - WarLord

From Comments: If his mother was pregnant with him, they'd make sure he was fed. They'd make sure she was tied to the bed and forcibly fed until he was born. After that, they don't care - WarLord
From Comments: ...after reading this news story, conservatives across the US were embarrassed by ejaculating in their pants at the thought of an American kid going hungry. Now they can hardly wait for a chance to deny him healthcare, shut down his public school, throw his family out on the street, and, when he's older, figure out a way to deny him the right to vote. Fun times...for soulless, heartless, dogmatic, reactionary, regressive, conservative assholes... - WarLord

Will Uber's Latest Scandal Finally Make People Worry About Big Data? http://io9.com/will-ub...
"... But the data privacy implications of an Uber employee accessing a journalist's ride data without her permission may loom larger over the company in the long term than Micheal's poorly thought-out dinner banter. It's data about users' locations, after all, that enables the company's service. But not all Uber customers may have thought through the implications of the highly personal data cache they have turned over to the company. Uber, however, is intimately aware — in one 2012 blog post, the company boasted about being able to determine when likely overnight encounters occurred just by the timing and location of trips. ..." - WarLord
"... According to BuzzFeed, when reporter Johana Bhuiyan arrived at Uber's New York headquarters for an interview earlier this month, local general manager Josh Mohrer was waiting outside for her — and gestured to his iPhone, telling Bhuiyan he was tracking her arrival. In an earlier e-mail exchange with the reporter, Mohrer e-mailed her logs of some of her own Uber trips. The reporter had not given him permission to access her travel data, BuzzFeed says. ..." - WarLord

Cardinal's demotion helps Pope Francis quell 'conservative backlash' -- for now | http://fxn.ws/14Rczo5
"... Burke, who was prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura -- the highest court in the Vatican and a position of considerable power -- when he spoke out, was shifted to the largely ceremonial role of patron to the sovereign military order of Malta. Burke, whose demotion is without precedent in recent Church history, has since denied that he is attacking Francis, yet many remain unconvinced. ..." - WarLord
