News Flash: Right-Wing Fundamentalists Don’t Understand Islam

Hemant Mehta drew attention to angry outbursts on Twitter, from conservatives who are upset that president Obama did not mention God in his 4th of July address.

Jesus in Indiana

I felt like I should make some memes specifically for the new Facebook page I created, Progressive Christians of Indiana. And so here is my first. It hopefully works on its own, but since it tries to allude to a lot of things in a short space, let me comment on it at least a [Read More...]

Obama’s Texas Invasion Plans Revealed

Greg Carey made this image and shared it on Twitter, and a lot of people have found it entertaining. And so I thought I would share it on the blog for more people to enjoy.

Barack Obama: I’m Not Saying You Were Aliens, But…

I support the separation of church and state, and am pretty sure that the President of the United States has no business quoting Exodus or any part of the Bible in an official speech. On the other hand, contrary to what conspiracy theorists are sure to come up with soon if they haven’t already, this statement [Read More...]
