USAFA Chaplain Colonel Robert Bruno stands up for atheists

Pagans at the Air Force Academy in Colorado now have an outdoor equivalent of a chapel to practice their religion(s). Immediately, Christian groups expressed concern over the $50,000 Falcon Circle at USAFA. Col. Robert Bruno, the academy's senior chaplain said: "The First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion does not just apply to the mainstream faith groups. It also applies to atheists, secularists, freethinkers and those whose belief systems are usually classified under the … [Read more...]

Christian ‘tree witch’ shooters admit their guns are dangerous “like bombs”

Remember the 400 rednecks who shot their guns at 'tree witches' for Jesus? No? It was for New Years - January 2nd - how could you forget? Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/embed/kiM1Iw37__0? I was on the receiving end of some hate from Cherryville natives - and my comments section was getting pretty heated. Over and over, people were claiming that this insanity was actually safe. Admittedly, I erroneously thought they were shooting live rounds. Turns out they were using 'black powder … [Read more...]

Rick Perry: “Let’s get the troops back to work”

He didn't say it like that, but during last night's Republican primary debate, Rick Perry seemed to promise to start / restart more wars. He wants to put the troops back in Iraq, just days after the war ended. We all know that long wars generate jobs for Americans... or not, I guess. Well at least those lazy bums in the US Military (who, me?) would finally get back to work. "I would send troops back into Iraq" He went on to clarify, but I think he had already lost most Americans. "I … [Read more...]

Rick Perry Says He Would Send Troops Back To Iraq

Guess who just lost the majority of whatever remaining military vote he was counting on. That's right, the less-frothy of the Ricks. http://www.youtube.com/embed/I5qZ9GrBf4w? … [Read more...]

Horseshoe pro: “but if either you or your horse are an idiot…”

Canadian foxhole atheists also have trouble getting accurate dog tags

It's like the guy at almost every dog tag machine all of a sudden forgets about pluralism when an atheist approaches. Len Blakely wrote to me about his experiences in Canada. It sounds all too familiar. After trying about 150 times to photograph it I decided it wasn't working. I managed to cobble together a power cord for my scanner and electrical tape up the usb cable so it worked. At any rate here they are, Atheist dog tags Canadian style. (NRE=No Religion Expressed.) When I first … [Read more...]

Captain Ryan Jean: “Getting ATHEIST on my records took two minutes”

A while back I posted about a heart wrenching and debate-ending example of why foxhole atheists need to demand NO-REL-PREF be accurately updated on their records to ATHEIST. Many are being told that it's not possible - and on the contrary it has been for decades. Captain Ryan Jean wrote to me: It took me two minutes and an open-minded Admin NCO to change my religious affiliation from "NO-REL-PREF" to "ATHEIST" back in 2009. It took me a week of waiting and ten bucks of my own money to … [Read more...]

400 rednecks shoot guns to scare away the tree witches [insane footage]

In Cherryville North Carolina, somehow this is legal. Watch how many of them hurt themselves. http://www.youtube.com/embed/kiM1Iw37__0? "Supposedly all the guns firing scared off the witches, out of the trees, and got rid of the bad things and brought in the good for the next year,” said Judy Houser. Look at how unbelievably unsafe this is. Where the hell are the police? These people do not know how to fire their guns, and you see several of them get injured. Look how they hold their … [Read more...]
