Christian Columnist Criticizes Atheists for Getting Bibles Removed from University-Affiliated Hotel

The Freedom From Religion Foundation recently stopped a hotel affiliated with Arizona State University from putting Bibles in the rooms — for obvious reasons. It’s not a private hotel, and a taxpayer-funded school shouldn’t be giving away Christian propaganda.

Linda Valdez, writing for the Arizona Republic, can’t believe it. She thinks FFRF is abusing the separation of church and state by, you know, defending it.

FL Christians Push 2018 Ballot Measure to Potentially Execute Women and Their Abortion Doctors

Donald Trump was excoriated earlier this year when he said women who obtained abortions should be punished. That was the wrong answer to traditional pro-lifers, who typically want to see punishment only for the doctors who conduct the procedures.

Now, Abolish Abortion Florida, an evangelical Christian group, isn’t just moving to the right of Trump, it’s jumping off the edge, calling for a ballot measure in 2018 that would treat all abortion providers and receivers as complicit in first degree murder, making them eligible for the death penalty.

Church leaders are freaking out because — wait for it — this could lead to bankruptcy.

Anti-Scientology Film Won’t Be Seen in Ireland Because Distributors Fear the Nation’s Blasphemy Law

Filmmaker Louis Theroux premiered his latest documentary, My Scientology Movie, nearly a year ago to overwhelmingly positive reviews. Failing to get cooperation from the Church itself, the film is all about how Theroux tries to hire actors to recreate infamous scenes witnessed by former Scientologists, only to have the actual Church come after him for doing that.

But good luck trying to see it in Ireland. Theroux’s team can’t find a single distributor to help release the film… and that may be because they’re all afraid of running afoul of the nation’s absurd blasphemy law.
