Loony Fundy Group Behind Political Smear Campaign

Australia: The Exclusive Brethren, a loony fundy Christian cult, has been caught distributing false and misleading documents about the Tasmanian Greens. They're also guilty of bankrolling the half-page ads claiming that the Tasmanian Greens' progressive transgender and intersex policies would ruin our families and societies.

National Greens Leader Bob Brown says an election pamphlet bearing his photograph and being distributed statewide is full of hate.

This is a very highly cashed up campaign by people whose bigotry is miserable and divisive of families. It is in strong contrast to the Greens inclusive and family-enhancing policies, Senator Brown said.

Harry Potter: The First Step to a Life in the Embrace of Satan

Vatican: Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican's chief exorcist, has warned that reading Harry Potter could lead young people towards Satanism. Bear in mind that the original source was that great bastion of fact-checking, The Sun.

By reading Harry Potter a young child will be drawn into magic and from there it is a simple step to Satanism and the Devil, he was quoted as saying.

You start with Harry Potter, who comes across as a likeable wizard, but you end up with the Devil.

There is no doubt that the signature of the Prince of Darkness is clearly within these books.

In 2003 Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) reportedly wrote two letters to a critic of the Harry Potter series.

It is good, that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because those are subtle seductions, which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly, he wrote.

By Satanism he no doubt means that children may learn to read, think for themselves and question the insanity spouted by the recent crop of frock-wearing troglodites who claim to filter the word of their imaginary friend to the great unwashed masses.

A Signature From God

United States: Paul Sewell, a self-employed bond enforcement agent, has had a run-in with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It seems they take a dim view of his long-held habit of signing his name as God on official documents, including his drivers licence and voter registration form.

...he signs official documents as God because fugitives always preface their comments with Oh, God, when he captures them. He said his co-workers thought that was funny and took to calling him God.

In his appeal to the court, he said I do not know why they are cancelling my driver's licence that I have had at age 16. Now I am 40.

He signed his appeal, God.
