A priest and a physicist walk into a bar… and it’s the same guy. Possibly minus the bar part, such is life for John Cunningham, S.J., Ph.D., an associate professor of physics (and chair of the physics department) at Loyola University in Chicago. His bio says that his research interests focus on experimental particle and astrophysics, [Read More...]
I couldn’t make this stuff up.
In response to ex-congressman J. D. Hayworth’s angry rant (on his NewsMax television “America’s Forum”) show about how Muslims are striving to impose sharia law on Minnesota’s good ol’ Christian boys, Ralph Reed observed that “bigotry against evangelical Christians is the last acceptable form of bigotry.”

Senator Ted Cruz said a lot of crazy things at the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators conference Tuesday, many of them about atheists. In one instance, he told the audience about how he fought against Michael Newdow to keep “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance (4:05 in the video below):

Cruz didn’t win anything. 5 of the 8 justices — Justice Scalia had recused himself — essentially threw out the case altogether saying that Newdow didn’t have proper standing to bring the case to court. While the other three ruled against Newdow, there was no official ruling on the merits of the case. It’s like Cruz is taking credit for winning a boxing match even though his opponent was disqualified.
Then, it got worse (5:39):
America’s biggest hater is dead. Fred Phelps was 84. In 2010, Huffington Post reporter Joshua Kors asked how the frontman of the widely reviled Westboro Baptist Church saw his own demise. Kors: Everybody’s going to die at some point. I’m wondering about your thoughts on going to heaven. Phelps: The Lord himself should descend for me with the [Read More...]
Writing for Charisma, J. Lee Grady has a list of 7 things that prove God is real.
Seven?! And they PROVE God is real?! Man, this list should be really good. (Hell, I only need one reason!) But let’s see how he plans to convince atheists he’s right…
How can anyone deny the reality of God when they see a baby?
I’ll just let The Onion rebut this one…
