Monday links

  • Dan Savage reports that pro-gay marriage advocates are protesting outside the home of a florist who refused to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding: "Not cool."
  • Radley Balko points to a story of New Jersey police arresting five teenagers after a noise complaint...and then leaving them in the police van out in the freezing cold for fourteen hours without food, water, or access to a bathroom. I'm curious what will happen to the officers in question.
  • Hehmant Mehta at Friendly Atheist wants to know how many Christian pastors actually believe in Hell, and whether they mention it at the funerals of people they believe are going there.  
  • Dr. X's Free Associations posts a Youtube video from an 8th grader about her experiences being bullied that probably matches, word for word, what a lot of us experienced at that age. The difference is that Youtube wasn't around when we were 13, so we couldn't post such videos and have it get attention from school officials. Here's hoping that in her case, they use the information wisely.
