Culty church seeks a younger demographic to continue it’s signature mass arranged marriages:

Men are on one side of the room, women on the other. Matched or engaged couples sit at the back. They open with songs from the ’60s — “Eight Days a Week” and “If I Had a Hammer” — anthems from their parents’ generation.

Their plan? Update the music.

Russian dance “tribute” to Aborigines offensive to Aborigines (shocker!)

“They have got the whole thing wrong,” said Stephen Page, artistic director of the respected indigenous group, the Bangarra Dance Company. Page said there were no traditional movements in the routine, the music sounded more like it came from India or Africa than Aboriginal Australia and the body paint looked like “a three-year-old child had drawn it on….”

For doubters, think of it this way: Imagine you are Italian. And then some “black kids” come to your door smothered in grease, wearing giant mustaches, and dressed in pizza costumes saying “Eh… look-a at-a me-a… I’m-a an a Italian-a.” Then imagine all but twenty “real Italians” remain in the world because the rest were killed by State-sponsored genocide.
