Marija Raos Fitzhugh's insight:

"

According to the BBC, the festival is believed to have roots in the 17th century, when prostitutes are said to have prayed for protection from sexually transmitted infections at Kawasaki's Kanamara shrine. Today, the festival reportedly raises awareness about safe sex practices and fundraises for HIV prevention."

Keith Olbermann's Tribute To David Letterman Is Great | Miscellaneousss | Scoop.it
Keith Olbermann is never better than when he's talking about someone he respects (perhaps because there aren't many of them). Last night was one such occasion, when Olbermann devoted an entire segment to David Letterman's announcement of his impending retirement. "All I keep thinking," Olbermann said, "is I'm watching Babe Ruth telling us he's going to stop playing baseball."

These congressmen want to tear down the wall between church and state

These congressmen want to tear down the wall between church and state | Miscellaneousss | Scoop.it
While Americans grow skeptical of religion's role in politics, a number of Congressmen are working to keep belief in the public sphere.
Marija Raos Fitzhugh's insight:

"...the Secular Coalition for America, a nonprofit group with a mission to "raise the profile of secular Americans" nationwide, released its rankings of how much — or little — legislators have supported the notion of church/state separation in the 113th Congress. Representatives were scored according to their votes and sponsorship of 14 bills related to church-state issues, including a measure in support of prayer in schools, a bill to amend the Constitution to prevent gay marriage, and a bill to eliminate funding for abstinence-only sex-ed. You can see the full list of bills at the Coalition's Web site."
