It's time for a roundup of little tidbits I wanted to share, but didn't get have enough time to blog about. I found them interesting while surfing this week.

Can someone tell me how the Knights of Columbus, an essentially Catholic organization, can legally contribute to a political cause like this? Likewise, the Calvary Chapel of Chino Hills?

How can they get tax-exemption as a religious organization, yet contribute to political causes?

I must not understand exactly how the law works.

Also shocking is how many of the donors are located along the coastal areas. Belies the widely held belief that California is a liberal state other than the inland rural areas, doesn't it?

Omg, look how many of them are in or around San Diego!!! $1,517,998 in donations came from the larger San Diego area. That's nearly half of the total donations to date from people living in my area.

Those lesbians do have a point about Digg.

If I was a member of the Diocese of San Diego I would be wondering why my bishop and one of his priest donated, and who they got the money from.
