So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday May 5, 2014.

President Obama enjoys a good laugh… as long as it’s at someone else’s expense. Case in point, the White House Correspondents Dinner where President Obama took time to roast his political rivals. Fortunately, there were other people there who were happy to take a few shots at the worst President in over 200 years.

The reports of anti-Semitism in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is apparently true. Hundreds of Jews in Odessa are preparing to evacuate the city as the violence grows more and more heated. Yet more evidence that the anti-Semites here in the USA are wrong as usual.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) spends the day with kingmaker Rupert Murdoch.

The first openly gay Episcopal bishop is divorcing his husband. I guess if he didn’t take the idea of homosexuality as sin seriously… he’s not going to care about a little thing like divorce. Which of course the Bible says God also hates.

Malachi 2:16 – For I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong,” says the Lord of hosts. “So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”

Some are arguing for the return of the guillotine as the most humane form of execution.
