Opinions: You're an idiot, we get it

CEO: The Electoral College is painfully outdated and only ensures corruption.

Opinions: A Christian on religion

WALLACE: The power of religion is frightening.

If we look back on history, there is no denying the personal, political, social, economic, ethnic, racial, cultural and other devastation reaped at various times and in various locations in the name of some god or another. There is no telling how many have killed or tried, gulped, bled or died as a result of the blades and bullets and bombs of religious ideology. Such power is frightening.
