31Remember that couple in Canada who were convicted for their child's death after they tried to treat him with maple syrup and homeopathy instead of actual medicine? Have they learned their lesson about the dangers of substituting medicine with altmed? Nope. They blame the ambulance workers.

28Of course there are conspiracy theories floating around about Orlando. One particular "Faulty Math" meme grew popular enough to be addressed by Snopes. And while it may be difficult to believe, Pat Robertson did not blame the shooting on gays.

22Alex Jones now endorses Hillary Clinton.(Warning: Poe's Law in action!)

32There is a time and place for campaigning for racial justice. Derailing a vigil for the victims of the Orlando attacks to accuse the LGBTQ community of being racist ISN'T ONE OF THEM.

28John Henry Westen of LifeSiteNews argues that public affirmation of same-sex marriage is the Mark of the Beast foretold in Revelation: "Having some mark which allows buying and selling is not evil in and of itself, thus there must be something attached to getting the mark which makes receiving it worthy of eternal damnation. It would follow logically that in order to have the means to buy and sell people could perhaps be required to be upstanding citizens. Might not they be expected to sign on to some statement of human right to attest to such a state?" And then he argues that Sr. Lucia of Fatima foretold that the final battle between God and Satan would be about marriage and family. (Because what promotes marriage and family by denying it to the LGBT community?)

31Saudi cleric says on public television that selfies with cats – or photographs in general – are "prohibited if not for a necessity. Not with cats, not with dogs, not with wolves, not with anything." They might want to consider using a ring binder to make adding new prohibitions easier.

18Some YouTuber made a video on this woman named Evalion and now her channel is getting some attention. She's been making videos for at least a month now and she is: antisemitic, anti LGBT, anti feminism, racist, neonazi, she promotes fat shaming and she's a radical Christian. Jee! What a combo we have here! Not sure if a Poe but the drunken peasants podcast declared her "not a troll." EDIT: her channel appears to have been deleted.
