Can one be smitten for copyright infringement on the Bible? Well, it appears so.
" I am a jealous God," He said, "but I am by no means unreasonable. If the person will stop distributing My copyrighted materials, there will be no further consequences. Like I've said before: hate pirating, love the pirate." Ironically, some of those most likely to be hit by these measures are among God's biggest fans. The Reverend Alfred Jackson is a minister at the church of St. Cecilia in Kansas City. In his spare time, he maintains the Bible study website "eChapter and eVerse," which cross-references large parts of the bible with commentary from clergy and laypeople from around the world.
God said that 'spreading the Gospel' was not a valid defense for distributing copyrighted materials. "Rev. Jackson has published at least 35% of My word electronically, where anyone with an internet connection can download it. Thrice did I call on him to repent; thrice did he ignore me or refer me to the EFF [Electronic Frontier Foundation]."
Of all places to make his return, Jesus picks Lufkin, Texas. With his exquisite coffee making miracles, Jesus has raised company profits from $2.3 million in sales to almost $78 million. Wow, now those are some miracles! Of course these miracles haven't gone unnoticed, he's been promoted. To what you may ask? Well, Vice President of coffee making, what else? One can only assume who the President of coffee making is?
Here's what Henry Thomas, President of Selby Communications had to say about the whole ordeal.
"I think we hired him as a security guard originally. I saw him tinkering with the coffee machine one morning and told him that it hadn't worked for years, that it would take a miracle for it to start working again. The next thing I know I've got a hot cup of Ethiopian blend and I'm loving it."
YAY YAY YAY! Nathan's plane lands in 17 hours 47 minutes from now! I'm so excited I can hardly do anything today.
"I find smokers more generous, more cynical and more up for a laugh," says Carol Midgley.
"I admit that I like smokers. Perverse, I know, being attracted to the 21st century's No 1 lepers, particularly since I've never smoked in my life and consider it a septic little habit. But it's not the cigarettes I'm draw to - it's the people who smoke them. (more...)

Remember Al Gore? He was the guy who won the US Presidential Election in 2000. Well, he got the most votes, but as thousands of Iraqi morticians and waterlogged South-staters will tell you, he didn't actually win. Regardless, he's taken the last five years getting over it, and now that the mourning period is over, he's launched his own TV station.
It's called Current TV and it's basically a bunch of 2 to 5 minute shows (called "pods") that are produced by a plethera of individual, non-Current-affiliated producers, ranging from Jim-with-a-camcorder-down-the-street to professional production houses. If you're reading this, you probably can't get the station - but look for it to come soon and check out the website in the mean time.
