Catholic group calls for protest of Corpus Christi production at Gallaudet University: "Ritchie quotes Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk as his moral authority in calling this protest: “Corpus Christi seems to go out of its way to present Jesus and His story in the crudest and ugliest of ways,” said Pilarczyk in 2003, “I believe that this play will offend the sensibilities of most people who reverence the Lord Jesus in any way.” In a week when it has been revealed, top Vatican officials — including the future Pope Benedict XVI — did not defrock a priest who molested as many as 200 deaf boys and that they covered up the rape of even more deaf kids in Italy, I find it astounding that this clown would even think about showing his face at this school, since Gallaudet University is the nations premier institution of higher learning FOR THE DEAF."

Think Progress noted back in June that the warning could cost her her seat: "The 2010 census will likely determine whether Minnesota loses one of its eight U.S. House seats; population determines seat allocation. Political experts agree that a few thousand people not filling out census forms may be all it takes for the state to lose a congressional advocate in the nation’s capital. If Minnesota were to lose a congressional seat, Bachmann’s district appears to be candidate for absorption."
Shh! Don't tell her.

UK gay activist Peter Tatchell speaks out for homophobe's freedom of speech: "American Baptist Shawn Holes was arrested in Glasgow earlier this month and fined £1,000 after declaring that homosexuals deserve 'the wrath of god'. But Tatchell, of gay rights group OutRage! has commented: 'I urge the police and prosecuting authorities to concentrate on tackling serious homophobic hate crimes, instead of wasting public money on petty, distasteful homophobic ranters. The price of freedom of speech is that we sometimes have to put up with opinions that are objectionable and offensive. Just as people should have the right to criticise religion, people of faith should have the right to criticise homosexuality. Only incitements to violence should be illegal.'"
