“A prayer to Elmer, patron saint of lost socks”

The twenty-fifth episode of the Atheist News Podcast has posted.

If someone wants to bother trying to explain the Holy Tri-Force to me–and they manage to convince me that three things can be three things and also be one thing at the same time–I’ll stop calling Catholics polytheists; until then they are out of luck. The saints and angels business doesn’t do much for your cause, I might add.

Polytheists or no, they are still jerks. Another thing that needs to be explained to me is what the hell orphans and spousally-abused women have to do with giving health care to the married partners of gay people. Or how giving health care to the married partners of gay people could possibly crack the $22 million dollar piggy bank that the District of Columbia gave the church. Just how many openly gay people is the Catholic Church employing these days? I wonder if they hire atheists, I could use some health care.

Speaking of Texas (like that segue?): they are plagued by a brand new tidal wave of stupid. If you are an atheist / skeptic / normal person and live anywhere near Amarillo, you should stake out the local army surplus store and ambush these goons with an impromptu theatrical performance of “Tear Me Down” from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Speaking of stupid goons (woah, this one actually made sense): if you live in Virginia, keep your eyes peeled for a van load of Christians handing out fliers blaming women for being raped. Yay ChrIslam.

Yet another anti-gay politician got busted courting mansex. I think Iago said it best.

I know it’s not particularly “atheist news” but you get two–not one–but TWO weeks of Jenny McCarthy News. Why? Because I am a sadist. But the biggest news of all is that apparently Richard likes his ladies a bit on the grotesque side. Who knew?

Last but not least, we did record an ATHEIST NEWS SPECIAL REPORT</reverb> interview with Michael Middlebrooks, the man that the governor of Florida allegedly spazzed out on for being an atheist. I am editing it now and it should be posted within a day or so.

The Governor was unavailable for comment.

    Well, I'm not Catholic, but take water for example… 3 forms= ice, liquid, vapor. 1 thing= water. Or time. past, present, future. All 3 are one thing= time. Different and distinct, yet one in the same. time.

    Hi,

    A mobility scooter has many advantages, but the scooters of today also have limitations that many people do not realize. However, if a person does their homework before purchasing one of the many power chairs available, then the advantages can far outweigh the disadvantages.

    Thanks,

    I am married to a lazy Protestant. A childhood Methodist who "converted" (yeah, right) to Catholicism in college to win a practicing Catholic. (By the way, I have no respect for that.) My non-practicing husband, a former Methodist cum Catholic, announced to me he needs a St. Joseph's medal for his half Vietnamese nephew who just made his confirmation. Apparently, St. Joseph is the Patron saint of Vietnam. News to me. Well, I, being the lapse Catholic person, steered him to a "Catholic store" not too far from our area. He was grateful that I pointed him out so he could purchase this little superstitious trinket in the hopes of gaining favor with his converted sister (married to this Vietnamese Catholic guy). It is now on back-order, but he gave a sigh of relief in having purchased this stupid, pagan, dumbass saint worship thing. Believe me, I mocked him all the way home, the hypocrite! Sorry. Had to vent. I am the one who was raised and believed for 40 years, not him. I know how stupid and weird this thing really is! Maybe now, his sister will think well of him. Jesus. Get me outta here!
