I think these are the same images that the Skeptic's Annotated Bible uses.
I'm not finding any illustrations over there.

Not that it matters; we could illustrate the babble with stick figures and they'd get the vapors over it.

Click one of the books of the bible, the images appear in the right hand margin. (they're are not on every page) If you click on an illustration, it brings up another window and you are able to scroll through them.

I've only seen him in bit parts on The Office, and saw only a little part of his roast of Charlie Sheen (wasn't impressed).

Any clips you can share that are actually funny?

Hard for me to find something quickly now at work, but I might be able to later. He was a good friend of Louis C.K., and made appearances on both of his shows.

A few years back when I had XM I would listen to Opie and Anthony, and he was frequently a guest, and frequently hilarious. (Although sometimes not.)

If he was anywhere close to the level of Opie and Anthony, I'll pass. Those are some of the unfunniest radio hosts ever. I couldn't listen for more than a few minutes when they were on here locally.

I'm not particularly a fan, to be honest. But I listened to them over Stern, since Stern is the king of unfunniest radio hosts ever.

Opie and Anthony's guests are the reason I listened. They pretty much only had comedians on, which is right up my alley. Jim Norton (meh, kinda funny sometimes) was essentially a co-host, but their regular guests included C.K., Leary, Saget, O'Neal, Greg Giraldo, and many other very, very funny people.

But yeah, those guys are tools. Especially Anthony.

Kentucky church votes to ban interracial couples

Talk about scraping the barrel!!

Quote:
A tiny church in rural Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from joining its congregation, pitting members against each other in an argument over race. Members at the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Kentucky voted on Sunday on the resolution, which says the church "does not condone interracial marriage". The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an "internal affair".
Does the lawd have some new dictionary that the sane members of the human race don't have access to?

Stop the Holy See men!

Sometimes I wonder if there isn't something actually hopeful about demonstrably racist people vehemently shunning the label.

It shouldn't take very much shunning of labels now that science has shown there is only one race of humans. An inter-racial couple would be a human and some other animal. No right-thinking person could condone something like that.

But, that's ultimately where we're headed.

First we allowed inter-racial marriages, now those damn gays want to marry, it's the next logical progression, that people will want to marry their dog.

It's the end of civilization, I tell ya!

Hey! Marrying your dog is an attack on the sanctity of marriage with monkeys.

Something tells me that these are not the type of people to be swayed by science.

Still, somehow, "racist" is not a particularly valued label in our culture, even as we stubbornly cling to the concept of "race" as a means to distinguish and separate human beings.

I'm intrigued by that contradiction.

I never understood how anyone could see this as a logical progression since dogs cannot consent to marry.

I know we're being facetious here, but I'm just saying.

I think you answered your own question. When actually using logic, nobody would.

Facetiae is a threat to the sanctity of marriage. It is a function of wit.
