    Great picture of Jane Krakowski; are her tits down around her belly button?

    OK, OK, that’s terrible, and Zohydro thoroughly denounces me!

    Glad and thankful to God that the Satanists (part of the same group who want to put up a “Satan loves the little children” statue in OK) decided not to have the Black Mass on the Harvard campus. I find it hard to believe that people can be so stupid-but not hard to believe that they can be so brazen-to assert that since they don’t believe in God or Satan that organizing a Black Mass should not be considered as a denigration of Roman Catholicism. Any Christian should find this objectionable.

    P.S. If you’re engaged in a Black Mass you already belong to Satan whether you believe in Him or not

    Modi will be the next PM of India, in all probability given the exit polls. NDA should be able to form the govt, ideally without any post poll alliance partners who can turn out to be a pain in the ass.

    16th May is the counting day, hope he gets a strong mandate.
