no really, you haven't, till you've watched a child dance around the room singing the theme song to Sponge Bob Square Pants.

The Nine Billion Links of GodAccording to the Phoenix New Times, the state of Arizona has been allowing a "feudal" colony of fundamentalist Mormons to force underage girls into illegal polygamous marriages for decades.
Aside from being an excellent title for a blog this is a good catch. When I heard this morning on NPR that Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped by a polygamist "preacher" I immediately realized she has probably been raped by this man and his wife. I suspect this case is going to open up several polygamist communities to outside scrutiny. Poor girl.

I don't normally reprint articles in whole. But I see this as very important and I have no idea where it came from so I'll print it here until I can find a proper citation for it.

Matthew Bailey-Dick, 30, from Waterloo ON, was denied entry into the USA early on March 7, 2003, after U.S. immigration officials at Port Huron MI found literature from Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in the trunk of
his rental car. The immigration officers claimed that the CPT newsletters,
printed in Chicago IL, were "anti-American." They also raised concerns
about a sticker on Bailey-Dick's guitar case that read, "Question authority."
Bailey-Dick is currently studying at Associated Mennonite Biblical
Seminaries in Goshen, IN. He had been in Waterloo, ON, speaking at the
church he had pastored for the previous two years--Waterloo Kitchener
Mennonite Church--about his participation in the recent CPT delegation
Bailey-Dick was carrying a J-1 student visa, valid until the end of
2003. U.S. immigration officers confiscated the visa, insisting that he needed a new type of visa document. They then finger-printed and
photographed him. Later that day, an immigration supervisor told
that his student visa was valid, but that he was still denied entry into
USA. The supervisor said that Bailey-Dick needed to go to Detroit for an interview with an even higher-echelon U.S. immigration official.
When he arrived at the Detroit border crossing on March 8, Bailey-Dick
questioned for an hour by FBI agent Tom Morisi and immigration officer
Owen about the work of Christian Peacemaker Teams and the CPT delegation
Iraq. They then informed him that his student visa would be reissued.
At the end of the questioning, Owen cautioned Bailey-Dick, "Don't bring
of that literature across the border any more. It's one thing for an
American citizen to distribute such literature. It's quite a different
for a foreign national to come into the USA and promote such ideas."

As we pack up our gear, I cross the street in front of the small Iranian apartment building where we were staying, to shoot some video, a wide shot of the truck and bus. Out of the corner of my eye, I see a man come out of a small convenience store, carrying a beautiful black rooster. He gently places it below the curb on the busy street. With a box cutter he cuts off its head. The lump of its body pulsates like a heart for a few moments as little puddle of crimson spreads across the pebbled asphalt. The rooster
This guy is going on the speed dial for the immediate future.
