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...]

Obama Says What Wingnuts Claim He Never Says

One of the claims we hear continually from the Christian right is that Obama is on the side of the Muslims because he never speaks out in defense of Christians who face terrible persecution in Muslim countries. Like most claims from the Christian right, this is a lie. The president has done so many, many times, as has the State Department. And here's another statement they will pretend doesn't exist: … [Read more...]

Planned Parenthood Killer Wants to Represent Himself

Robert Dear, the anti-abortion sociopath who killed three people and wounded many more while staking out his "pro-life" position at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, has told the judge that he wants to fire his public defenders and defend himself in court instead. He almost certainly wants to admit he did it while still arguing that he is innocent because it was justified. … [Read more...]

Shoebat Wants SWAT Teams to Shut Down Yoga Studios

Christian fascist and sociopath Theodore Shoebat is on a roll lately. Every day, it seems, he has a new prescription for the totalitarian theocracy he so loudly advocates. His latest declaration is that in order to establish a truly Christian civilization, which he believes Donald Trump will build if elected president, SWAT teams must raid and shut down yoga studios. … [Read more...]

Bangladeshi Couple Gets Asylum in Canada

I am relieved to read this article in the Toronto Globe and Mail about Raihan and Samia Abir, a Bangladeshi atheist couple who have seen many of their friends murdered by Muslim extremists for expressing their views on religion, having been granted asylum in Canada. I'm also happy to see that the CFI and CFI-Canada played key roles in getting them to safety. … [Read more...]

Shoebat: Trump the Only Real Christian in the Race

Deranged Christian sociopath and fascist Theodore Shoebat made an 80-minute long video review of the last Republican presidential debate, which he titled "All Of The Candidates Except For Donald Trump Hate Christianity And Are Enemies Of Christ." Imagine for a moment being so far out on the fringe that Ted Cruz is an "enemy of Christ." Some of what he has to say is...well, just read it. … [Read more...]

Lively: Shoebat is a ‘Pro-Family Hero’

Scott Lively, the deranged anti-gay bigot who brags about being influential in passing brutal anti-gay laws in Russia, Uganda and elsewhere, has put a list of "pro-family heroes" for 2015. It's the usual rundown of Christian right bigots, but there's one name that really jumps out. Among those given "honorable mention" is Christian fascist Theodore Shoebat. … [Read more...]

Shoebat Wants Muslims Hunted and Killed Like the Native Americans

Holy shit. Theodore Shoebat, son of fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat and self-admitted Christian fascist, actually manages to be even worse than he has already been. In his latest video, he praises Donald Trump for wanting to ban Muslims, then goes further and says that they should be hunted down and killed just like we did to the Native Americans. … [Read more...]
