Proof that God Hates Rudy Giuliani!


During yesterday’s Republican debate, Wolf Blitzer asked the pro-choice Rudy Giuliani about abortion. A Catholic bishop, Wolf said, had analogized Giuliani’s stance, which is that abortions are wrong but should be available to American women anyway, to Pontius Pilate opposing the execution of Jesus but still allowing it to happen. When a somewhat shocked Rudy tried to explain himself, lightening actually hit the building, cutting off Giuliani’s microphone. Everyone had a good laugh and Giuliani put forward a pretty good answer in the end, but RG should probably avoid golf courses, swimming pools, and summer rainstorms for a while. Somebody’s out to get him.

Elsewhere in Catholic news, a man jumped a security barrier and tried to board the popemobile while Benedict was riding in it. These are turbulent times for people of faith, surely.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
