Good and Evil

Let us now define the New Christian Right as people who get more upset about the possibility that they might have to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding than they do about revelations that their own representatives have not only molested children but covered up such molestation. If we can even call those “values” [Read More...]

The One True Religion, With Evidence

IO9 shared the above comic, depicting a future in which people have found a way to exploit a religious loophole in laws regarding medical ethics. It is OK to make exceptions for sincerely-held religious beliefs. Well, what if someone finds a way to foster certain beliefs, in the interest of scientific advancement…and profit? If you like the [Read More...]

Pure Evil

Via Yuriy Stasyuk on Facebook. This is a clear violation of the Golden Rule. Treat the religions of others the way you want your own to be treated. Or better still, treat your own religious views with the honesty and moral sensibility that you use in relation to the religious claims and views of others. [Read more...]

Pigmentation Pigeonholes

Speak Truth To Power

The quote comes from Annalee Flower Horne on Twitter. See also this bit of satire, showing what it would sound like if the news reported about whites the way it reports about blacks: [Read more...]

A Riot Is The Language Of The Unheard

CBS News has a recording of the speech by Martin Luther King Jr. from which the quote is taken. Morgan Guyton also shared another thought which seemed to me to be worth quoting and sharing: What is coming into focus for me is the difference between law and order and justice. Law and order describes a [Read More...]

No Sin To Be Homosexual

“We are each created in the image of God. It is no badge of honor to be heterosexual and it is no sin to be homosexual, just as it is no honor to be White and no sin to be Black. It is simply who we are.” The quote from Rabbi Paul Menitoff comes from his [Read More...]

Lifestyle Choice

In our day and age many Christians, including very prominent ones, have chosen a lifestyle that is fundamentally at odds with their claim to be Christians. This is a lifestyle choice I am talking about – it is not something genetic, something innate, something inevitable. It is a sin that is so abominable that it [Read More...]
