44Abortions mean sacrificing babies to the devil. WorldNutDaily finally gets an article where one satanist abortionist comes clean and tells the whole story. Abortions are all about sacrificing lives to Satan. "He said he performed many of the sacrificial abortion rituals at the clinics of “a large abortion provider,” but he would not identify the provider for fear of lawsuits.". The poor guy also has a personal website where he describes himself thusly: "An average boy in an average American neighborhood, Zachary grew up in a Baptist home. He began practicing magick at 10 years old, joined a satanic coven at 13 years old, and had broken all 10 Commandments by 15 years old. From his teen years to adulthood he worked his way up to High Wizard in the coven and actively pushed satan’s agenda including ritualistic abortions and breaking up churches. But then...". Yes, his website sells stuff, why do you ask...?

33Everyone's favorite conservative blogger is still pushing his case that Barack Obama proclaimed himself a Muslim in 2009 Some poor optimistic fool in the comments section apparently thinks he's arguing with a rational person, because he's spent two articles shredding Terry's "evidence" only to watch his opponent move goalposts and contradict himself.
