Mike's Blog Round Up
February 12, 2015

Today as I gathered the links there was a tragic slaughter of an entire Muslim family in Chapel Hill North Carolina. The conservative press and bloggers are charging ahead that the killer is a hardcore atheist (whatever that means) and not a Christian. We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and to the people of Chapel Hill, who must be terribly upset.
