Gaza.. Ukraine.. Putin.. Israel.. Islam.. Christians.. Jews.. Evangelicals & God = Death

The Israelis are turning Gaza into a killing field. In the Ukraine Russian-backed thugs murdered a plane full of women and children. In both cases religion is to blame.Putin would not be in power if not for the lick-spittle slavish backing of the utterly corrupt homophobic authoritarian Russian Orthodox Church.  Palestinians would be living in peace were it not for the crazy idea that some Bronze Age “god” “gave” land to one of the many Middle Eastern tribes that once fought over that part of … [Read more...]

The-God-Of-The-Bible’s Women-Management Plan is focused on Bodily fluids. To put it mildly HE has an Uneasy Relationship with Women! So Does Wheaton College

A Wheaton  professor asking for the pill?To put it mildly the so-called God-Of-The-Bible has an uneasy relationship with women. The other day I was trying to figure out why Wheaton College (an evangelical school) wanted to claim a "religious liberty" right to deprive women of insurance coverage for contraception. The school even went to the Supreme Court to claim that right.How to explain this?I'd just published my new book --WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, … [Read more...]

Jesus Was Not a “Bible Believer” let Alone an Evangelical

Jesus certainly was not a “Bible believer,” as we use that term in the post Billy Graham era of American fundamentalist religiosity that’s used as a trade-marked product to sell religion. Jesus didn’t take the Jewish scriptures at face value. In fundamentalist terms, Jesus was a rule-breaking relativist who wasn’t even “saved,” according to evangelical standards. Evangelicals insist that you have to believe very specific interpretations of the Bible to be saved. Jesus didn’t. He undercut the scri … [Read more...]

Jesus hung out with whores

Here is an excerpt from WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peaceChapter 9Sam likes to call me out of the blue and casually mention the latest dumb stunt perpetrated by the Religious Right, the Roman Catholic bishops or the Republican Party, as if I have anything to do with it. He pretends I’m still one of “them” whenever “they” do something insane. A televangelist says gay people are going to hell… A bunch of bishops try to ban women from get … [Read more...]

Rubio is a Traitor to the Human Race & a Willful Fool Pandering to Stupid Evangelicals by Denying the Evidence on Climate Change

Face it: White aging evangelicals are the backbone of the Republican Party. Face it: Literal belief in the Bible snaps your brain. Face it: the brain-snapped evangelicals believe in Noah but not in science, especially not in the science of climate change. Face it: American evangelicals are therefore, the greatest threat to life on earth the world has ever known.The leaders like Mark Rubio who must pander to evangelicals are willing fools. They aren't just “skeptical” of scientific findings Re … [Read more...]

Brian D. McLaren, Phyllis Tickle & Ron Dart on Frank Schaeffer’s WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace “Frank Schaeffer always writes well, but Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes In God is extraordinary. Somewhere between the sterile, absolute, and empty formulae of reductionist, totalitarian science and the earnest, hostile, excessively certain make-believe of religious  fundamentalism, there is a beautiful place. There is room in this place for honesty. For tenderness. For fury. For wo … [Read more...]
