Now, local atheists are trying to build an orphanage that will be connected to the school — and they need funding.
The “World’s First Atheist Orphanage” is Seeking Funding… but I Don’t Feel Comfortable Giving Them Any Money
A few months ago, I posted about how a group of German Pastafarians were able to get the city of Templin to put up signs alerting people to their meetings:
Larry King: “I Think the Only Reason for Religion is Death. If You Didn’t Die, There’d Be No Religion”
We’ve known for a while that former CNN host Larry King was an atheist, but he opened up about it more than usual during an interview on New York City’s Power 105.1 morning radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

There’s a reason I cringe when politicians — usually Republicans — profess their ignorance about science. Like when Scott Walker can’t answer a basic question about accepting evolution or Bobby Jindal thinks teaching Creationism in public schools should be allowed.
Some people don’t seem to think these questions are relevant unless the politicians directly affect policy in these areas — but that’s foolish. Their responses speak more broadly to how they make their decisions: Do they defer to experts in the field or listen to an ignorant base?
Idaho State Rep. Vito Barbieri (below) is someone who’s no expert in science and he has decision-making power… which makes him especially dangerous.
