The special aired last night, and the insults ranged from clever to somewhat horrific.

Catholic Iraqi refugee attacked, beaten in NM by man who thought she was Muslim

Albuquerque’s KRQE Channel 13 reported that, ironically, the woman and her family are Catholic Iraqis who fled that country six years ago to escape religious persecution. They told KRQE that they never expected this to happen to them in their adopted homeland. Around midday last week, Seham Jaber was home alone when the doorbell rang. Thinking it was her husband, she opened the door without looking, only to be attacked by a man wearing a mask and gloves.

“The irony is the individual thought the family was Muslim, and they’re actually refugees from Iraq who are Catholic,” said the Albuquerque Police Department’s Simon Drobik.

According to a transcript obtained by KVUE, Travis County felony prosecutor Steve Brand told the judge that he was removing the woman because of her NAACP ties, but it was “not because of race.” “It’s because in part she appeared to be an activist, and that’s what we don’t want,” he said.

Americans Want Congress Members To Pee In Cups To Prove They're Not On Drugs. WASHINGTON -- While most Americans like the idea of drug testing for welfare recipients, they LOVE the idea of drug testing for members of Congress. According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 64 percent of Americans favor requiring welfare recipients to submit to random drug testing -- a measure pushed by Republican lawmakers in recent years -- while 18 percent oppose it. But an even stronger majority said they're in favor of random drug testing for members of Congress, by a 78 percent to 7 percent margin.

Sixty-two percent said they "strongly" favor drug testing for congressional lawmakers, compared to only 51 percent who said the same of welfare recipients. The House of Representatives passed legislation this year that would allow states to require food stamp recipients to pee in cups to prove they're not on drugs. In 2012, Republicans pushed for drug testing of people seeking unemployment insurance benefits when they lose their jobs.

" The case specifically involves the phrase, "under God," which was not actually a part of the original phrasing of the Pledge.
