An Atheist Rock Song for Those on the Fence About Their Faith

Christian Couple’s Plan to Divorce if Australia Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage Isn’t Going So Well

Last week, Australians Nick and Sarah Jensen made international headlines when they said that if gay marriage was legalized in their country, they would get a divorce after ten years together. I guess that would show that legalizing gay marriage clearly affects straight ones.

Texas Mayor Defends “Jesus Welcomes You to Hawkins” Sign, Saying That Critics Would Also Oppose Superman

Following his 2011 anti-abortion movie and his 2013 anti-evolution movie, Christian apologist Ray Comfort raised $332,000 for his new anti-homosexuality film project. (Which makes sense, I guess, for a guy best known for his banana video.)
