So what did noted humanitarian David Silverman do? He printed this message on billboards, thus clinching the last minute win of the coveted Hilariously Missing the Point Award for 2013.
Oh, and by the way?
"In response to the tragedy, Pope Francis made an initial donation of $150,000 for the relief efforts through the Pontifical Council Cor Unum."
David Silverman doesn’t give a shit about the people in the Philippines; if he did, he could have used an opportunity to join forces with organizations such as Catholic Relief Services or Caritas International in order to help with typhoon relief.
Instead, he printed costly billboards to disparage the work that such people are doing in an effort to get more publicity.
It’s shameful, pure and simple.
Also, proselytization is forbidden of Catholic relief workers in the course of operations. Materials are on hand for those who request it; Catholics who have lost everything often want Rosaries in order to offer prayers for themselves and others.

Wow.
This is why actual, real facts are important.

DigitalPapist, tellin’ it like it is.
Plus, the Philippines is a largely Catholic nation. Speaking AS A CATHOLIC, if I lost everything, receiving a Rosary and/or a Bible would be a pretty big deal like DP said. I’m not sure what “proselytization” he’s talking about, at least not in this context. We’re not certain groups of fundamentalist Protestants.

Warner Bros. Animation Announces ‘Batman And Son’ Feature [Video]

By Matt D. Wilson

Like it or not, Grant Morrison’s run on Batman was one of the longest and most definitive runs on a character in the past decade. So it makes perfect sense that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment would look to it as inspiration for one of its animated features.

The new Son of Batman movie appears to loosely adapt Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert’s “Batman and Son,” the first arc of Morrison’s seven-year Batman run. It introduces Damian, but also throws Deathstroke into the mix, something that was never part of the story in the comics.
