Thanks Obama

Waiting to see how Fox News will spin this:

The sound of children screaming filled the air as President Barack Obama read one of his favorite children’s books during the 137th annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday at the White House.

One of the main attractions of the event is the live storytelling sessions. However, when Obama sat down to read Where the Wild Things Are to a group of children, the day descended into chaos.

Churchgoer Tries to Hide Gun After Accidentally Shooting It Mid-Prayer

Feeling safe yet?

The Altoona Mirror reports that the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament’s Easter mass was more wild than expected this year after “a legally carried handgun discharged in the pocket of an attendee,” grazing his hand. It appears “a critical piece of the handgun apparently caught on the man’s pants as he stood up,” whereupon this unnamed man passed the gun to a friend, who attempted to hide it in his church program (as seen above). Trying to disguise a gun that’s just gone off inside a church program is maybe the only thing more brazen than actually shooting the gun inside church.

Nun Stabs schoolboy to teach him about the suffering of Jesus

As somebody who has gone to catholic school and has had nuns as teachers, it’s not surprising that this happened. It’s just surprising we don’t hear about this more often:

An over-zealous nun stabbed a schoolboy in the hand with a needle to show him how Jesus suffered.

Sister Ludovita, 30, had been giving RE classes at a school in the town of Kysucke Nove Mesto in northern Slovakia when she told unsuspecting pupil Adam Celko, 7, to come to the front of the class.

She then took a needle out of her handbag and rammed it into the boy’s hand in front of the horrified class, telling him that this was how Jesus suffered – and he would too if he behaved badly.

The boy’s outraged mum Helena, 30, said: “When Adam got home he had a wound on the back of his hand and when I asked him what had happened he told me the nun had done it.

Gay Student to Miss Prom Over No-Tux Rule

From Monroe News-Star:

Carroll High School senior Claudetteia Love, an openly gay student and top academic scholar, won’t attend the school’s prom this year because the school won’t allow her to wear a tuxedo.

The school says it’s simply a dress code, but Love said the school’s prohibition is more about her sexual orientation than her fashion choices.

Friday, she sat quietly crying in her living room as she talked about missing one of the signature events of her senior year. The prom is April 24.

“I told my mom, ‘They’re using me. They put me in all these honors and advanced placement classes so I can take all of these tests and get good grades and better the school, but when it’s time for me to celebrate the fact that I’ve accomplished what I need to accomplish and I’m about to graduate, they don’t want to let me do it, the way I want to,’ ” she said.
