Scrolling around...September 7th, 2012

On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled away from the sun at over 900 miles per second. This movie shows the ejection from a variety of viewpoints as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), and the joint ESA/NASA Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

Liberals on Twitter curse Archbishop Dolan for pro-life prayer at DNC convention
Liberals on Twitter expressed their displeasure with a pro-life benediction given by New York Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan Thursday night at the DNC convention with a stream of profane tweets, Twitchy  reported.

Malkin: Circus of the Vagina-gogues vs. Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan
Hide your children. This is what the progressive left’s idea of women’s empowerment looks like: For the past two weeks, radical feminists from the group Code Pink have paraded across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes.
The goal is “respect” for women’s bodies and women’s abortion rights. It’s part of the coordinated campaign to fight the right’s purported “war on women.” The Vagina Puppets’ Democratic Party sympathizers, from professional birth control freeloader Sandra Fluke to first lady Michelle Obama, dog-whistled the same messages of “choice” and “freedom” from the convention stage...

A.S. Haley: A Pro-Life God Is Not Welcome at Democratic Convention
At the Convention they just completed, the Democrats had a very difficult time reconciling their ideals and beliefs with the Christian God. Amid all the hoopla about the last-minute fig leaves added to their official party platform, an even more telling story has gone largely unreported. Todd Starnes at Fox News published  this story on September 6 (H/T: Martial Artist):

The Democratic National Committee banned dozens of Charlotte churches from distributing gift baskets to delegates because the congregations hold values that are contrary to the party platform, according to local religious leaders.

“They told us our views on women’s rights are contrary to the Democratic party platform,” said David Benham, the lead organizer of the Charlotte714 religious movement.
He explained in his next paragraph about the "Charlotte714 movement":
Charlotte714 is a group of more than 100 churches across the region that mobilized to pray for the Democratic National Convention. More than 9,000 people gathered last Sunday for a time of worship and prayer in advance of the convention.
Benham said the name references an Old Testament passage in 2 Chronicles 7:14 – calling the nation to prayer.
More than 9,000 Christians? Gathering to pray for the Democratic National Convention? Yep, that's right...
