Originally posted on CNN Belief Blog:

Opinion by  Rachel Held Evans , special to CNN

(CNN) — On March 24, World Vision announced that the U.S. branch of the popular humanitarian organization would no longer discriminate against employees in same-sex marriages.

Special report: Taxpayers fund creationism in the classroom – Stephanie Simon – POLITICO.com.

“Taxpayers in 14 states will bankroll nearly $1 billion this year in tuition for private schools, including hundreds of religious schools that teach Earth is less than 10,000 years old, Adam and Eve strolled the garden with dinosaurs, and much of modern biology, geology and cosmology is a web of lies.

If by Rudyard Kipling

If by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your…

By craggy rocks environ’d round, we came,
Where woes beneath more cruel yet were stow’d:

Of a great monument we stood retir’d,

The eye could catch its beam.  I turning round
To the deep source of knowledge, thus inquir’d:
“Say what this means?  and what that other light
In answer set?  what agency doth this?”
