Feel the Christian Love on this Billboard

But, yeah, "Fake News" billboards are the problem.

12-year-old rape victim told to 'turn the other cheek' as Christian school refused to report...

A 12-year-old rape victim was told by the headmaster of a Christian school "to turn the other cheek" and that "everything in God's kingdom happens for a reason", lawsuit files alledge.

The school is being accused of covering up repeated sexual assaults against the boy, downplaying the attacks and refusing to report a rape in a lawsuit that is seeking at least $30m (£23m) in damages.

The mother of the boy, who attends Brentwood Academy, a prestigious private school in Williamson County in Tennessee, filed the lawsuit in which she also accuses four eight-grade students, then 14 and 15-years-old, of having repeatedly sexually abused her son when he was in the sixth grade in 2014/15.


When John Doe talked about the incident to the school headmaster Curtis H Masters, he allegedly told him he needed to "turn the other cheek and that "everything in God's kingdom happens for a reason".


This is just sickening. And, for the record, I don't see much difference between this usage of "happens for a reason" and all the other bullshit times it gets used. Oh, that little girl had to die a horrible death because god had a reason. Fuck that.

Cut the cord a couple months ago. Any hints about watching NFL games?

Glad we cut the cord. We are currently using Playstation Vue and like it (Amazon Fire Sticks are awesome). We are doing a month of HBO (free for the 3rd year in a row) now to watch Game of Thrones. Even if we decide to do a month for $15 somewhere along the line, it is still so much cheaper than what we were paying for DirectTV.

Anyway, the only thing I don't think I can get is NFL games. I would like to see them live. I live in the Packer region but am a life-long Vikings fan, so live TV would be good (don't have the antennae to do that right now) but someplace that streams other games would be better. Worst case scenario I go to a bar. I wish the NFL would get their shit together and let us buy all of a team's games for a season. Hell, I'd pay $70 for that. Maybe more.

Guess I'm supposed to introduce myself.


Just a dude in the midwest who's been reading some of the stuff on here since we shifted to Idiocracy with our new election. Decided it was time to jump into the fray. I'm in the middle of re-reading the Dark Tower series before the movie comes out next month, hence the username.

Anyway, cool site.
