    Wouldn't really call 31 to 38 narrow... that's a 10% difference. Still, a shame. Some ex co-worker I have on Facebook from down there was going on about how there's "other problems that should be solved first", "who's going to pay for it", "not practical to implement 1st world policies in 3rd world countries", blah blah blah. Almost wanted to say something but then I'd just be the stupid yankee talking about things he doesn't understand.

    Yeah, I didn't post a thing about it on FB because all I ever do with political posts now is take them down a few weeks later. I also think that discussing things on FB changes exactly nothing.

    That old Catholic boat anchor continues to drag on South America. All the countries are going to struggle until that particular institution gets marginalized.

    Satanic statue unveiled at Arkansas state capitol

    It isn't a permanent one, although they are trying to make it happen. It's part of a movement after the legislature moved to have a statue of the Ten Commandments on its grounds.

    Excellent.

    Reminds me of this old news:

    Satanic Temple seeks to start after-school programs in nine US districts

    This Satanism thing should be its own thread.

    I remember there was a Satanist group in the US somewhere that bought a bunch of highway billboards saying they might sue state governments that passed anti-abortion laws because banning abortion violated Satanists' religious beliefs.
