If a Christian Group Can Distribute Bibles in Kentucky High Schools, Atheists Want the Same Opportunity

Earlier this year, Gideons International requested and received permission to leave Bibles at a Kentucky public elementary school so that interested children could pick them up.

In response, the Tri-State Freethinkers group decided they also wanted to play the game by leaving books promoting Humanism at the same school. The district had no choice but to allow them to do it.

Some parents, in response, pulled their children from school that day:

It turns out that Casey County isn’t alone in letting the Gideons into schools. It’s happening all over the state — in high schools as well as elementary schools — and the freethinkers are fighting back.

Jenny McCarthy, Who Still Promotes Misinformation About Vaccines, Now Says “I Am Not ‘Anti-Vaccine’”

After years of pushing dangerous ideas, such as the never-proven claim that there’s a link between vaccines and autism, model Jenny McCarthy is trying to reinvent herself as someone who’s totally pro-science.

Good luck with that.

In an op-ed published by the Chicago Sun-Times (where she also writes a column about dating and parenting), McCarthy explains that she’s been misunderstood this whole time:

I am not “anti-vaccine.” This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, “pro-vaccine” and for years I have been wrongly branded as “anti-vaccine.”

Whoa! That’s incredible! We’ve had it wrong this whole time!

… or maybe not. Because everything she writes after that opening paragraph establishes that her critics have been right all along.

Equifax Not Sure God is Real, Screws Him Out of Car Loan

God Gazarov, 26, is a native Russian who says he was named after his grandfather. The Brooklyn jewelry store owner has built up a decent credit score (in the 720 range), but that’s only if you believe Experian and TransUnion. The third credit reporting agency, Equifax, has put God through, well, hell, suspecting that he doesn’t exist.

Apparently, the unusual first name raised red flags over at Equifax.

Iowa Governor Signs Proclamation Inviting All Iowans to Turn from Their Wicked Ways and Embrace Christianity

This past week, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a proclamation that calls on all Iowans to embrace Christianity according to a specific Bible verse:

The proclamation was suggested by a Christian group called “Prayer 7-14-14,” which references the date they plan to celebrate the Bible verse 2 Chronicles 7:14, where God states,

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

(Incidentally, 2 Chronicles 7:5 involves the gruesome slaughter of 142,000 animals, and 2 Chronicles 7:19-22 involves God telling us how he’s going to destroy a temple if people don’t embrace him… but, you know, Free Will something something. Let’s just ignore all that and focus on the single passage.)

This proclamation was for Jesus Followers, by Jesus Followers. And if you don’t follow Jesus, well, you damn well better start. Just look at the requesting group’s website if you dare… it tells you how, for the sake of our nation, we must come together to honor the Christian God.
