  • Adams, Sliwa resort to name calling as they spar over NYC migrant crisis

    NY Post ^ | 08/29/2023 | Craig McCarthy
    Mayor Eric Adams and Curtis Sliwa got especially nasty over the migrant crisis Tuesday — with Hizzoner blasting the Guardian Angel as a “buffoon’’ and his foe deriding him as “The Swaggerman with No Plan.’’ “Any time you start out a question with the name ‘Curtis Sliwa’ — that in itself states it would be a disservice to me and other New Yorkers to even respond,” Adams snarked when asked about Sliwa’s calls to house migrants on the grounds at Gracie Mansion. “If you look in the dictionary for the word ‘buffoon,’ tell me what picture comes up,” snapped the...

    Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said this week that former President Trump’s taunts regarding his last name are “petty” and “juvenile.” “I think it’s so petty. I think it’s so juvenile. I don’t think that’s what voters want,” DeSantis told Jack Heath on “The Pulse of New Hampshire.” Trump recently mocked DeSantis for the pronunciation of his last name and referred to the Florida governor as “Ron DeSanctimonious,” a nickname the former president frequently uses. DeSantis told Heath that Trump’s behavior is one of the reasons why he lost the 2020 presidential election.
  • Cracker Barrel Is Under Fire for Its "Racist" Name

    The comfort food-style restaurant chain Cracker Barrel, known for its overwhelming amount of ornamental knick-knacks and vintage signs plastered on the walls, is in some social media trouble today. Folks on the internet are claiming Cracker Barrel is racist. According to Southern Living, “cracker-barrel” was coined in 1916 because of barrels containing soda crackers — a popular item for sale at country stores. Customers at said country stores would hang around the barrels as a kind of ritual (kind of like the trope of employees gossiping near the water cooler). The first Cracker Barrel location opened in 1969 in Lebanon,...

Fort Gordon, Ga. Fort Hood, Texas Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Fort Lee,...

    President Joe Biden struggled Monday with the correct pronunciation of the name of Aaron Salter Jr., a heroic ex-cop and security guard who died Saturday confronting the Buffalo mass shooting suspect. “We pay tribute to all law enforcement officers and their families who understand what it takes, what’s at risk, to save and protect all of us,” Biden said. “That includes paying tribute to the Buffalo police officer Aaron Salder — Slater, excuse me — who gave his life trying to save others.”

    Elon Musk took to Twitter, the platform he will soon own, to mock Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social. Musk tweeted that Trump’s platform has a “terrible name,” and “should be called Trumpet instead!” Musk’s criticism comes after he pointed out that Truth Social, launched as a Twitter alternative, has passed Twitter on a ranking of “Top Apps” in Apple’s app store.

    Christian Post ^ | 06/02/2021 | Richard Simmons III
    Is what I believe true? I cannot think of anything more tragic than to live my life with a false view of reality. A false view of the existence of God. But if God does exist, does He have a name? If the evidence points to the existence of a transcendent infinite spiritual force in the universe, this force will remain unknown to us unless it appears and reveals its identity. The human search for God will always be an effort in futility, unless God chooses to reveal Himself in a convincing manner. CP Reporter Leah MarieAnn Klett reported in...

    Residents of Ottawa's Trump Avenue could soon have a new address, but unlike the erstwhile U.S. president, they're not going anywhere. Trump Avenue is a quiet street of brown brick single-family homes fronted by wide driveways, nestled in the city's Central Park neighbourhood, just off Merivale Road. On Saturday, the city began consulting with residents "to ascertain their level of support to rename their street," according to an email from the office of their city councillor, Riley Brockington, who also delivered notices to each home on the street. According to Brockington, the consultation "follows a number of recent and some...

    A private college in West Virginia said Wednesday it is removing the name of the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd from its health center, saying his name had caused “divisiveness and pain" without explicitly noting his complicated past on racial matters. Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s but subsequently denounced the organization. He served in the Senate for 51 years and died in 2010 at age 92. Bethany College President Tamara Rodenberg said on the school's website that Byrd's name will be removed from the college's Robert C. Byrd Health Center “to demonstrate...
  • Do Not Take the LORD's Name in Vain...Ten Commandments pt 4

    Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. ( Exodus 20:7)The Third Commandment is a prohibition against blasphemy. We are to fear God, and to regard his name as sacred. The name of God is indeed a name, but it includes far more than the personal name He has revealed, (JAHWEH). The name includes all that He is, has done and stands for. To ” take his name in Vain” is to profane that which is Holy, to invoke him falsely,...
