Fill ‘Er Up, Jesus — This Time With High-Test!

Did I post about these guys before? Forgive me if I did, but I'm newly horrified by the Christian Prayer Center. After 3 months of unemployment due to downsizing. Standing in faith & sowing down to my last $2.00 in my wallet/empty bank account; I have been blessed with a better job & benefits than my previous 2 jobs. I start this on Monday. I was offered another job @ less money $10,000 less than I made last year, but God told me not to accept it out of fear, but to trust HIM as this was … [Read more...]

Bad Answers: Inevitable Result of Mistaken Beliefs

Looking at a story in the news this morning. Study: Free Birth Control Leads to Fewer Abortions Free birth control led to dramatically lower rates of abortions and teen births, a large study concludes. The findings were eagerly anticipated and come as a bitterly contested Obama administration policy is poised to offer similar coverage. The project tracked more than 9,000 women in St. Louis, many of them poor or uninsured. They were given their choice of a range of contraceptive methods at no … [Read more...]

Iran: The Ass End of Progress

Say you're a country full of people and you have a lot of vital business to conduct to keep everybody fed and housed and healthy and safe. What do you do? Well, you reach first for this immense tool you have, the most flexible and creative problem-solving device on the planet — the intelligent, educated human brain.

Top 10 Important Points About Pushing Islamic Buttons

I'm including the horrifically bad movie trailer for "Innocence of Muslims" at the bottom of this post. There are deeper issues in the Middle East, and even deeper issues in this latest flap over the "anti-Muslim" video. But some obvious things spring to mind: 1) Freedom of speech is damned important. No, you don't get to shout "Fire!" in a crowded theater, but if you shout "Fire!" on the Internet, and people have to actually make an effort to find and watch the video of you shouting, that's … [Read more...]

Bloodsucking Rabbis Vow to Defy The Law

Briefly but vividly imagine this:  At your request, a trusted member of your religion removes the foreskin of your newborn son and then ... dips his head down and PLACES HIS MOUTH onto the open wound. You really have to hope there are no communicable diseases on his lips or floating around in his saliva, because there would be no better time to pass them along. According to the New York City Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene, it happens. … [Read more...]

God Comes Knocking … Via Spam

Suppose you put a sign up on your house that said in big bold letters, “No Christian Evangelists, Please” — but a sales-pitchy Christian showed up at your door with a stack of Bibles and Chick Tracts. How would you feel about that? Annoyed, right? Okay, but since you’re a nice person, you’d send them away with no harsh words, offering instead a simple, “We’re not interested.” You’d talk about it after with atheist friends, but that would be pretty much the end of it. You’d … [Read more...]

YOUR Thoughts and Feelings Are Nothing. Wrong. Bad.

Whew. I just stumbled across a link to an Answers in Genesis page, and oh boy, it’s ugly. In an article posted June 6, 2012, Tim Challies asks and answers the question, What Kind of God Would Condemn People to Eternal Torment? The beginning lays out the question, but in a way that’s almost comical in its intensity: … [Read more...]

I Saw Angels! Hovering! Over Flight 93! Crash Site! Angels!

Yes, former FBI agent employee, you saw ANGELS. A former police officer who retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder linked to her role in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks has written a book about seeing legions of angels guarding the Pennsylvania site where a hijacked airliner crashed. Officer Lillie Leonardi, who arrived at the Flight 93 scene about 3 hours after the crash — and this is the plane that didn't crash into a building on Sept. 11, 2001, but into a … [Read more...]

German Court Grabs Parents by the Foreskin

Oooh. A German court has ruled that not even deeply religious parents have the right to circumcise young boys on religious grounds, calling it “grievous bodily harm.” The regional court in Cologne, western Germany, ruled that the 'fundamental right of the child to bodily integrity outweighed the fundamental rights of the parents.' 'The religious freedom of the parents and their right to educate their child would not be unacceptably compromised, if they were obliged to wait until the child … [Read more...]
