Shoebat: Jesus Would Kill Gay People!

Christian fascist Ted Shoebat has another video in which he calls on Christians to kill gay people, this time by beating them to death in the streets. He praised Christians in Eastern Europe who supposedly did this (like they do in Russia a lot) and were not punished for their violent barbarism, and said Jesus would personally beat gay people to death: … [Read more...]

Manning is a Tad Bit Upset About LGBT Group Buying His Church

Deranged Christian fascist James David Manning is all worked up now that a pro-gay group is raising money to buy his church, which has been put up for tax auction because he's a million dollars in debt, and turn it into a halfway house for gay teenagers. He's responding with his usual incoherent ranting and raving: … [Read more...]

The Weirdly Catholic Shoebats

Longtime friend of the blog Richard Bartholomew takes a look at Walid and Theodore Shoebat, the fake "ex-terrorist" and his openly and admittedly fascist son. What really strikes me as odd about them is that they're Catholic. Usually their particular brand of theocratic totalitarianism is found in Protestant circles, especially among the hardcore Calvinists. Not so here. … [Read more...]

Russian Orthodox Leader Blames The Gay for ISIS

The Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, who is a Christian totalitarian, says he understands why Muslims are joining the Muslim totalitarian and terrorist group ISIS. It's because of those damn gay people, who are getting all uppity in thinking that they're human beings with equal rights and not just convenient boogeymen for hateful assholes like him. … [Read more...]

More Violence from Hindu Fundamentalists

And we have yet another story of Hindu nationalist fundamentalists in India violently attacking people on nothing more than a rumor that they have beef to eat (not that it should matter if they do, of course). This time it was a couple on a train who were attacked because these violent extremists thought they had beef in the bag they were carrying. … [Read more...]

A Horrifying Story from Pakistan

This story from Pakistan has me really shaken up. A 15-year old boy misheard something an imam said and raised his hand at the wrong time. He was then accused of blasphemy by the imam, so he went home, cut off his hand and brought it back to the imam as penance for his mistake. It's a shocking reminder of how religion can encourage extraordinary barbarism. … [Read more...]

Saudi Arabia to Murder Another Apostate

The fascist kingdom of Saudi Arabia is going to put to death -- murder, let's call it what it is -- yet another person for the mere act of leaving Islam. Apostasy is a capital crime in that totalitarian country and the poet Ashraf Fayadh is the latest to be given the death penalty for publishing “something that harms public order, religious values, public morals." … [Read more...]

Shoebat: Use SWAT Teams to Take Children From Gays

Another day, another declaration of Christian fascism by Theodore Shoebat, son of fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat. This time he's expressing his revulsion at the idea of gay people raising children. I mean, of course he does, since he thinks they should all be murdered anyway. And he says that the government should use SWAT teams to steal the children of gay people. … [Read more...]

IHEU Issues 2015 Freedom of Thought Report

The International Humanist and Ethical Union has issued its annual Freedom of Thought Report, which documents discrimination around the world against atheists, humanists and the non-religious. The report was made public on International Human Rights Day in Brussels, Amsterdam and Washington, DC. Unfortunately, it got little press attention in this country. … [Read more...]

Killers of Bangladeshi Blogger Sentenced to Death

I have mixed feelings about this. Two of the people who murdered a Bangladeshi atheist blogger have been sentenced to death. While I don't support the death penalty, I am pleasantly surprised that the government of that country is taking the matter seriously and didn't find a way to let them get away with it. I also fear that it may trigger another round of violence. … [Read more...]

AZ Woman Kills Another for Not Believing in God

This is one of the more bizarre stories you'll ever see. A woman in Phoenix has been arrested and charged with first degree murder after she killed another woman because she didn't believe in God, then kept her body on the couch in her home as a shrine to God. She apparently admitted all that to the police after they found the body in her home. … [Read more...]

More Christians Wishing Violence and Death on Mikey Weinstein

My friend Mikey Weinstein lives under constant threats of violence, hardly an idle threat given that his house has been attacked, shot at and covered in swastikas. I've posted many of the emails he has gotten over the years threatening him and filled with vicious anti-Semitism. Here's one recent one, wishing that he would die in a car accident: … [Read more...]
