The 6 Most Humiliating Public Failures by Celebrity Psychics.

– Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has already suggested that Monday’s Washington Navy Yard shooting was a “false flag” operation perpetrated by the government to stir up anti-gun sentiment. Somebody watches too many movies.

In a speech recently posted online, Catholic Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis John Nienstedt blamed “Satan” for abortion, contraception, pornography and same-sex marriage. So…why do they want me to worship the other guy?

– Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, who suffers from a debilitating form of motor neuron disease that has left him almost completely paralyzed, has expressed support for the legalization of assisted suicide for the terminally ill. Said Hawking: “We don’t let animals suffer, so why humans?”

Kansas City mom complains that trips to Arrowhead Stadium to watch the Chiefs play are being marred by presence of (fully clothed) strippers. And yet, not a word about these.

The Smoking Gun has obtained copies of the complaints filed with the FCC over Miley Cyrus’ VMAs performance–and they’re entertaining, to say the least. Apparently, the FCC received 150 complaints, despite the fact that the agency has no authority over the content of cable networks like MTV, which aired the VMAs.

A federal judge has ruled that clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch violated anti-discrimination laws when it fired a Muslim employee for refusing to remove her headscarf while on the job. Their mistake was hiring her in the first place.

Six really stupid 9/11 conspiracy theories debunked in about six seconds.

Wisconsin state legislators are considering a bill that would allow owners of bars and other establishments that sell alcohol to sue underage drinkers who purchase alcohol from them. (If found guilty, the underage drinkers could be forced to pay a $1,000 fine.) Yeah, that’ll stop them.

– And finally, a Tennessee judge has overturned a child support magistrate’s decision to change a baby’s name from “Messiah” to “Martin”, ruling that doing so violated the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. The magistrate, Lu Ann Ballew, ordered the baby’s name changed last month because, in her belief, “Messiah” is “a title that has only been earned by one person – and that one person is Jesus Christ.”
