1st century fragment of the Gospel of Mark found inside a mummy mask in Egypt

It was a shocking discovery and a victory for  scholars – a fragment of the gospel of Mark found inside a mummy mask in Egypt. However, the discovery has atheists up in arms, and you won’t believe why.

The discovery was made in , where mummy masks were made out of recycled papyrus. When taken apart via a delamination process, the masks can yield up to 12 different fragments of antiquarian writing.

, one of the masks yielded a fragment of the gospel of Mark from 80 A.D. – the earliest known fragment of that book of the Bible and putting it quite close to the life of Christ. This also goes a long way to disproving the claim that the gospels were literary inventions that took place centuries after the life of Jesus.

72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents

Read the entire list with references at :

At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly.  The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists.  But now the Obama administration is from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.

And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.  So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke.  The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them.  And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

Ground Zero Cross: Court presses atheist group to explain why artifact is 'offensive'

Apparently, being offended is not grounds for legal action. :

A federal appeals court said this week that an atheist group trying to keep the so-called Ground Zero Cross out of the National September 11 Memorial Museum must better explain how displaying the artifact is “offensive” and violates members’ constitutional rights.

The 17-foot-tall, steel beam “cross” was found in the rubble of the World Trade Center twin towers in New York that fell during the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The cross became a sort of shrine or place of comfort for first responders who often prayed there and left messages or flowers. It was moved away from the debris a few weeks later and became a tourist attraction through several years of reconstruction.

American Atheists filed the suit in 2011, which was thrown out last year by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York.

The appeals court ruling Thursday cites an amicus brief filed by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a nonprofit law firm that specializes in church-state law and protecting the free expression of all religious traditions.

A win for privacy: High Court rules against police cell phone snooping | Absolute Rights

At :

In a ruling that helps restore at least a modicum of constitutional privacy and due process protections in the digital age, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that police must first obtain a search warrant before snooping through suspects’ cell phones.

Police agencies argued that searching through a cell phone was no different than asking someone to empty their pockets, but the high court – unanimously – rejected that, saying a cell phone is fundamentally different.

In writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts found:

The fact that technology now allows an individual to carry such information in his hand does not make the information any less worthy of the protection for which the Founders fought. Our answer to the question of what police must do before searching a cell phone seized incident to an arrest is accordingly simple— get a warrant.

Roberts also noted that today’s cell phone technology is capable of keeping a person’s entire life in digital storage – pictures, documents, even medical records and other private materials – which makes it subject to Fourth Amendment protections.

Roberts said cell phones could lay bare someone’s entire personal history, from their medical records to their “specific movements down to the minute.”

Harvard Educated Michelle Obama Says Founders Not Born In America

Didn't they step right off the and sign the ?  At :

Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama told “attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America.”

I thought this was a story from The Onion. Michelle Obama actually said this. This goes to show you how dumb smart people can be.

These are the same dumb smart people who get us into unwinnable wars, wrecked the economy, and don’t know the differences between the sexes.

Not only didn’t her Harvard and Princeton educations teach her how to feed her children, they apparently didn’t teach her much about American history:

Utah Representative: Defund Burgeoning Armed Federal Employees

After more reports of , Congress is taking notice. This article from :

Federal agencies are increasingly granting agents the authority to carry weapons and execute search warrants, a trend that one congressman is hoping to reverse.

Rep. Chris Stewart is preparing legislation to defund the law enforcement units of agencies, such as the Bureau of Land Management and the Environmental Protection Agency, whose primary purpose is regulatory.

"The fundamental challenge is that people like me simply do not trust the federal government any longer. We see examples of non-law enforcement agencies taking a very heavy hand, using armed SWAT teams against citizens, and that leads to an even deeper mistrust," the Utah Republican told Newsmax.
