Atheist Shoes… for Babies!

You all know David Bonney. He’s the German shoemaker who made international headlines last year when his Kickstarter for atheist shoes (with godless messages on the soles) far exceeded his goal and delivery of the packages seemed to be delayed whenever a US Postal Service worker saw the ATHEIST-branded packing tape…

No matter. More than 1,000 pairs of the shoes were eventually sold and 10% of profits even went to secular charities!

Now, Bonney is back with a new creation: Atheist shoes for babies! But since it wouldn’t be fair to say a baby actively disbelieves in God, Bonney made shoes that honor the higher powers they do believe in: their moms, their dads, and the sources of their nourishment:

Another Atheist Condemns the Attack of a Christian Pastor

New Age Author Marianne Williamson Announces Bid for Congress

You know what we haven’t seen enough of lately? Oprah Winfrey‘s show “Super Soul Sunday.” I heard it’s good.

Last year, Winfrey interviewed the author of several bestselling spirituality books, Marianne Williamson.

It’s all a lot of nonsensical spirituality, where you say so much and so little all at once. Like this excerpt from one of her books:

Religious Provocateur and Hypocrite Pastor Mark Driscoll Tells Christians to ‘Stop the In-fighting’

A press release for Pastor Mark Driscoll‘s new book contains this laughable passage:

… the outspoken pastor from Seattle issues a prophetic warning to the church that “dark days are ahead” if we don’t stop the in-fighting and refocus our efforts on preaching the gospel immediately.

“We’re approaching a cliff,” writes Driscoll. “Many Evangelicals are oblivious to the fact that Christendom is dead and real Christianity is in serious decline. As long as we see Christmas trees on government property and hear public figures talk about ‘faith,’ many Christians naively assume that real Christianity is alive and well. That’s an illusion.”

The bad news is that Christians don’t even get it, according to Driscoll — they’re stuck in their cul-de-sacs. Christians are isolated in “tribes” on the internet, and they spend too much time lobbing e-bombs at each other in cyberspace.

Religion News Service’s Jonathan Merritt takes Driscoll to task for not practicing what he preaches.
