Little Rock: Very religious, also fond of pornography

  • Buzzfeed

The Little Rock metropolitan area (which includes Conway, Sen. Rapert) is a place with a rich and deep religious tradition.

It ranked 10th on a recent Gallup tracking poll of the "most religious" cities in the United States, with 54 percent describing themselves as very religious. Had we edged up one more point, we'd have been in a tie for 4th.

Well. Pornhub (you'll have to look it up yourself) took the Gallup list and ranked the religious cities by per capita visits to the site, which markets hardcore videos, between Dec. 1, 2012 and April 30.

Buzzfeed has compiled the results in a handsome spread complete with photos. LR/NLR/Conway came in at No. 3, with 18.8 Pornhub views per capita.

This doesn't mean there are any websurfing hypocrites here. It just might be that the not-so-religious are REALLY fond of Pornhub. I do note that Montgomery, Ala., where 64 percent say they are very religious, ranked No. 2 with 21.9 Pornhub views per capita. Their irreligious must REALLY REALLY like Pornhub.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
