Here, Now – First off, thanks to everyone who took 90 minutes out of their Friday night to participate in last night’s Pulpit of Doom podcast. Because of
slackness mis-communication, I found myself conducting the podcast very alone and very drunk on Kraken black spiced rum.
While I loath podcasting solo, I put on my big boy pants and decided to soldier on – while drinking 3x faster than normal. I think it came out ok, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Aside from me going on some drunken rants concerning Christianity in 2013, and people who kill someone while driving under the influence, I slurred through the top 10 stories circulating on the site for the week.
These stories included pissing in coffee pots, losing two kids because of Bible verses, killing someone while driving under the influence, giving the dog a bone, the dangers of snorting chemicals ordered off the Internet, the dangers of dating a sociopath, kids spiking babies into a cribs, and starving kids to the point they eat their own shit.…Continue Reading

ARLINGTON, VA - Police arrested James Watson after he beat his roommate for using a permanent marker to draw a penis on his face while he was sleeping.
Watson, 31, fell asleep on his couch after a night of drinking. When he woke up at around 5:30 a.m., he became enraged when he found his roommate had drawn a dick on his face, and that it would not wash off.
Police say that Watson ran upstairs to the bedroom of the roommate he suspected of drawing the dick, and jumped on him while he was sleeping. After repeatedly punching the other man in the face, a third roommate managed to separate the two. According to police, the roommates admitted they often play pranks on each other when drunk.
A little over an hour after the assault, the beaten artist decided he was going to press charges and called police. The roommate paid for his dick move with extensive injuries to his face, including a swollen, bleeding eye, and was taken to the hospital.
I’m guessing the injuries must have been pretty bad, as police ended up arresting Watson and charging him with malicious wounding.…Continue Reading

Sterling, VA - After sneaking out of his house to go drinking with friends, 16-year-old Caleb Gordley was shot to death a few hours later after he mistakenly entered the wrong home.
Police say after drinking with friends Saturday night, Caleb was dropped off at the upscale neighborhood he and his family had lived in for only a year. After hopping a fence at around 2:40 in the morning, Caleb entered a home he thought was his, but was actually his neighbor’s home two doors down.
The homeowner, Donald Wilder, was alerted to someone in his house after a security alarm was triggered when Caleb entered the home through a back window. Wilder called 911 to report an intruder, but ended up shooting Caleb as the teen made his way up the stairs to where Wilder and his family were sleeping.
The two homes are similar looking, especially in the back, and are located in a neighborhood populated by McMansions. Investigators feel that Caleb had no ill-intent when he entered Wilder’s home, but that his inebriated state had him confused as to what house he was entering.…Continue Reading
