    Yet more people who need to grow the hell up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Fox News tracks down minor moron in state department and turns it into a national issue.

    Good grief©


    Chief Diversity Officer John Robinson penned a column in the department's latest edition of "State Magazine" advising readers on some rather obscure Ps and Qs.

    But if they did that, they'd actually have to do the jobs they were hired and/or elected to do! Can't have that.

    Political correctness run amok.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    and I wonder why our country is sliding down hill.

    If this is the best the State Department can find to spend time on, we are in deep trouble. The Obama Adminstration should be ashamed of themselves. Someone needs to grow a backbone.

    Um, a lot of these oddball sayings actually do have racist/sexist/whatever roots.
