One for the conspiracy theorists: spell "ILLUMINATI" backwards and put .com at the end. Where does it go? — (Thanks to @juhasaarinen via @danjite.)

Media Picks On Poor Ugandan Christianstrying to keep Uganda's Christians from putting gays to death amounts to "imposing" on their rights -- not the right of gays not to be put to death, but the right of Christians to put them to death This effort was fanned by American Evangelical leaders, including the allegedly moderate Rick Warren.

(See the meme "the only moral abortion is my own" for a lot more on this tendency of conservatives to let themselves off the very same hooks on which they want to hang other people out to dry.)

The Conservative Case for Gay MarriageWhy same-sex marriage is an American value. Former Bush solicitor-general Ted Olsen goes way off the conservative reservation, expresses sanity and sticks to principles in direct contravention of 30 years of GOP politics. Starting countdown to Rush Limbaugh/Glenn Beck grovelfest. (Thanks to sheelangig.)
