phoenixmosqueprotestA mob of armed protestors converged on a mosque in Phoenix during Friday prayers (for no other purpose, it seems, than to get attention and hopefully rile local Muslims into doing something rash). The worshippers handled it perfectly.

SCOTUS is entering the home stretch for this session, and right out of the gate they’ve issued a ruling favoring religious freedom in EEOC v Abercrombie & Fitch.

We interview Jan Netolicky, author of the young adult novel The Skipworth Summer, set in the 1970s and featuring an atheist as a sympathetic protagonist. The book is available in paperback and for Kindle.
