Atheists Sue Franklin County (Indiana) Over Nativity Scene on Courthouse Grounds

Last week, I mention that there was a Nativity Scene in Brookville, Indiana that has been up for over 50 years, despite warning letters (over the course of several years) from the Freedom From Religion Foundation to take it down.Here are the only details that matter: The display is owned by the Town of Brookville and sits on the grounds of the Franklin County Courthouse.

Now Who’s Waging War on Christmas? To the Dismay of Other Christians, Pastor Claims that Santa = Satan

Pastor Edward Carothers seems like a barrel of laughs. He's the man behind a church sign outside the Born Again Independent Baptist Church in Harlem, Georgia, that's been raising eyebrows. It reads:
SANTA IS SATAN
Also:
SANTA GREAT IMPOSTER
So what's Carothers' beef with the big-bellied gift-giver from the North Pole?

Arizona School Board Decides Against Redacting Honors Biology Textbook Page Mentioning Birth Control

Last month, the board members of the Gilbert Public Schools in Arizona voted 3-2 in favor of removing a page from an honors biology textbook because it contained information about birth control and abortion.Mind you, it also said "Complete abstinence (avoiding intercourse) is the only totally effective method of birth control," but the textbook upset conservatives because it suggested there were non-abstinence options when it came to birth control.
After the district became the subject of mockery -- Rachel Maddow's team even bought the domain ArizonaHonorsBiology.com so that everyone could read the controversial page from the textbook -- Superintendent Christina Kishimoto urged the board to reconsider their decision.It worked. Yesterday, the board agreed not to change the books:

Kennesaw (GA) Officials Hypocritically Rejected Mosque’s New Location, but They’ve Finally Come to Their Senses

Earlier this month, the Kennesaw City Council (in Georgia) voted down a proposed Islamic center located in a strip mall... but even that was an obstacle in itself:
... when the time came, Kennesaw Mayor Mark Matthews had trouble getting the council to take a vote at all. No member would second the motion to proceed.After several very awkward pauses, the council finally voted. Four of the five members voted “no”.
Why would they say no when the Muslims fulfilled all the requirements of any group looking to acquire the space? Council member Debra Williams (below) made clear this had nothing to do with anti-Islamic prejudice:

ISIS Reported to Have Killed and Mass-Buried 150 Female Captives For Refusing Jihadi Marriage

The depravity intensifies, if that's even possible.Via the Independent:
Isis has executed at least 150 women for refusing to marry militants in Iraq, Turkish media has reported. A statement released by Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights on Tuesday said the militants had attacked women in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar before burying them in mass graves in Fallujah. Some of the women killed were pregnant at the time, according to the Anadolu Agency.
