Maybe Jesus Just Is Not That Into You.

Ex-Christian Neil Carter has written what I think is an instant classic, all about his decision to “break up with Jesus” because the dude just wasn’t answering his calls and e-mails. He goes over the various explanations friends would give for Jesus’s silence: Some said he heard my messages but didn’t answer because what I [Read More...]

Why Clergy Rightfully Have No Place At A 9/11 Memorial (Or Any Civic Ceremonies)

Some clergy have been upset that they were explicitly excluded from today’s ceremonies about 9/11. I alluded to this, with a link where you can read more, in the following critical remark yesterday: some [are taking] the opportunity [of 9/11's tenth anniversary] to selfishly feel aggrieved because their religion and its pseudo-authority and pseudo-comforts are neglected.

"And There Are No Christians In Med School"

I have an idea. In the future whenever you hear someone falsely say that there are no atheists in foxholes, don’t disagree with them.

Florida Passes Bill Allowing Teachers To Take Part In Student-Led Worship

Another legislature with contempt for the 1st Amendment: “I know our football team prays a lot before and after games, and those are always student-led,” [high school junior John Bielby] said. “Once a coach gets involved, it might get more influential or less influential, and it kind of becomes a slippery slope.” That’s why some school [Read More...]

Encouragements Of Imprecatory Prayers Against Obama

So insidious: Over the past few days, a Biblical verse has reportedly topped the google trends charts. It is also turning up in bumper stickers and tee shirts across the country. It reads: “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8” But what do you see when you look up that Psalm? “May his days be few; may [Read More...]
