They worship Satan:
[quote]Yazidi accounts of creation differ from that of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. They believe that God first created Tawûsê Melek from his own illumination (Ronahî) and the other six archangels were created later. God ordered Tawûsê Melek not to bow to other beings. The...

Did anyone else just hear that old bruh named Beau (or Bo) Broussard on NPR say that he didn't vote for Obama in 2008 and won't vote for Mary Landrieu because "he don't vote for black people, lady. I was raised that they have their place and I have mine"??

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Brandon Marshall trade - Bayou Sam on 10/21/13 at 11:05 am|
I'm going to propose trading Marshall to this guy in my league who has three top running backs and is struggling a bit at WR. The RB position for me has been a total disaster--T-rich, David Wilson, Lamar Miller, L Bell.
So he has Reggie Bush, McCoy, and Forte. What would be your ranking on these?...
