Homily: An Ill-Informed Feminist Attacks Jerry Coyne (plus Tweets)

Many of you who are good enough to subscribe to Heather’s Homilies only found me because you were already followers of Jerry Coyne’s site: ‘Why Evolution is True’ (WEIT). Therefore, you you probably read his post on 28 December: ‘A real feminist’. It’s about, “… Anna Muzychuk, a Ukrainian chess grandmaster who holds the women’s world titles in Rapid... read more

Homily: More Trump Lies (plus Tweets)

It’s a tiring time for me, leaving little energy for things like posts. Today’s tweets were collected over a three day period, so again some are probably out of date by the time you read this. My apologies.

Somehow, Trump is innocent of all the allegations because he won the Electoral College. If that’s the case, it’s also time for... read more

Homily: Palin Shennanigans (plus Tweets)

I could have just made up a special Tweets section for this story, but it’s so funny I couldn’t resist writing about it. (Of course, it wasn’t very funny for those who were part of it, and I don’t want to diminish the distress I’m sure they felt.) But the whole thing is like a story written for a tragi-comic farce based on the real life characters most of us first came across... read more
