    Twelfth-century Hindu temple breaks with tradition after Supreme Court rules against two Brahmin families who have claimed exclusive ancestral rights to choosing priests for centuriesA twelfth-century Hindu temple that attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims annually is to admit women and lower-caste men as priests for the first time. The historic break with tradition came about after India's Supreme Court ruled against the two Brahmin families, Badve and Utpat, who had provided the temple's priests for centuries. The court ruled against their claim to exclusive ancestral rights over the earnings and rituals at Vitthal Rukmini temple, in the town of...

    We’ve grown accustomed to senseless liberal logic insinuating that anything that has to do with the color spectrum is somehow racist or racially charged, however; the most recent attack by The Guardian filth-spiller, Tracy van Slyke, is so stupid it just made me chuckle. Check out what she said about the demonic Thomas the Tank Engine. From The Guardian: For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump...

    In the politically correct attempt to avoid "stereotyping" and be safe from discomfort, have we been blocking out reality? Hollywood has been indulging in a sort of reverse racial profiling: cinematic terrorists could be anybody other than Muslims. Muslim terrorists? As in the movie Non-Stop, Hollywood would rather cast the family members of 9/11 victims as terrorists rather than reflect that such a thing exists.

The proposal stems from a brouhaha that arose after a fan, who appeared to be Caucasian, donned a headdress at Native American Heritage Night. The fan was approached by two Native Americans who asked for the headdress and then refused to give it back, according to a report from USA Today.

Even if the NFL and Redskins brass come to their senses and rename the team, a greater symbolic injustice would continue to afflict Indians an injustice perpetuated not by a football club but by our federal government, Simon Waxman of the Boston Review wrote for the Post on Thursday. He added that the helicopter names were propaganda that needed to end, because Native American...

Show host Pat Sajak brought up the "woman who agreed to marry" Klotz during the introductions; no, no, that's not right. There's actually a lot to dig into here. Sajak, of course, is a right-wing extremist who just a few months ago mocked the string of athletes who, of late, have had the courage to come out as gay. There's also the overall assumption that Klotz is somehow undesirable, and all that traditional (and quickly becoming outdated) proposal...

    Russia's policy on Western technology is clear: The country can live without it, especially if key issues like economic sanctions, NSA spying and GPS cooperation aren't resolved to its leader's satisfaction. It looks like this tough stance extends to US-designed computer chips too, as a Russian business newspaper is reporting that state departments and state-run companies will no longer purchase PCs built around Intel or AMD processors. Instead, starting in 2015, the government will order up to one million devices annually based on the "Baikal" processor, which is manufactured by a domestic company called T-Platforms.

Who gives the left such power? I yelled, We do! By the way, while in West Virginia, I attended Mary's dad's...

It is not a day to throw a sombrero-themed party, they said. Some...

Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1937, though not all states observe it, including Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, and South Dakota. The day has long been a hot button issue over whether it is offensive to the American Indian culture to credit Christopher Columbus with the discovery of America. On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously to approve the proposal to rename the day Indigenous Peoples Day. The designation would be observed on...

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on...

    105.9 FM is the local classic rock station in south Florida.....just a few minutes ago, I was bored with everything else on the radio and hit that station...just in time to hear the beginning of the hit "Money for Nothing"... Imagine my surprise when the lyric got to: "That little faggot with the earring and the mink coat, Yeah, buddy, thats his own hair. That little faggot got his own jet airplane. That little faggot is a millionaire!" Funny lines....but the dreaded "slur" was clipped out! Absurd. Anyway, since I RARELY listen to music radio, I was wondering if this...

    Dear Reader (Hey look at me! I dont have to change the gender settings on my salutation! Take that Facebook), So, imagine youre a young Saudi guy logging on to Facebook for the first time.

I count three. What are these other 55 things?

    In a globalist, politically correct system of government, where any minority is given preferential status over the majority, especially a Christian majority, some things just have to change. That is the case with having a school mascot and nickname of Crusaders. How could a Christian school expect to get away with a mascot that is not Sharia compliant in the first place? The school, Maranatha Baptist University in Wisconsin has announced they will drop their old name, but havent yet determined. The Crusades were so long ago, and with the increasing pressure to accommodate Islam in all aspects of American...

    According to Jerry Seinfeld, comedy and political correctness don't mix. The "Seinfeld" star had some surprisingly blunt things to say about the perceived lack of diversity on his shows in a chat with BuzzFeed and CBS News. In the clip above, the host brings up the fact that most of the guests Seinfeld has had on his Web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," have been white males. Seinfeld is clearly uncomfortable with the line of questioning, muttering, "Oh, this really pisses me off." He continues, "People think it's the census or something? Does this [have to] represent the actual...

    Todays progressive has such a limited mindset, its a wonder they can find their way to the bathroom in the morning. Being severely corpus colosum challenged meaning they cannot process and integrate left and right brain signals (except for designing video games) to arrive at cogent and reasonable conclusions. An ancient text referred to this as ever learning, but never coming to the knowledge of truth Diversity in their limited perception means merely simple human divisions of race, gender, ethnicity and economic status with todays strange nod to sexual preference. True diversity goes infinitely deeper into the endless...

    A Christian college in Wisconsin is dropping its Crusaders nickname after nearly 50 years, claiming the moniker has become outdated in a more global society, university officials told FoxNews.com. Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown and its Division III athletic teams have used the name since its founding in 1968. Matt Davis, the universitys executive vice president, said no complaints have been received by the school and stressed that it coincides with its name change from Maranatha Baptist College in December. But I also agree that times change and we understand that context changes, Davis told FoxNews.com. Our world has changed...

    ...a Northern Ireland politician has said. The attraction in Sichuan province, about 930 miles from the sea, will let hundreds of people at a time experience the shipwreck. The Titanic was built in east Belfast. Former Lord Mayor of Belfast Jim Rodgers said he had asked the Chinese firm behind the 1bn yuan (100.7m) project to reconsider their plans. He said that while it was a "great idea" to build the Titanic replica at the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort, "to have a simulation of an iceberg collision is going a step too far".

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. An Orange County firefighter's decision to paint a confederate flag on a county-owned fire ax has resulted in a 12-hour unpaid suspension, Channel 9 has learned. The ax was discovered at the scene of a house fire in Pine Hills. The report claims a black man who lived at the home that was burning was already upset about the fire at his home, so when a fire department lieutenant saw the ax with the flag painted on it, he told a supervisor about it and took it away before the homeowner saw it.
