Megyn Kelly, of Fox News, along with James and Shirley Dobson went on a verbal assault of Mikey and MRFF.  Claiming that Mikey was an atheist (he's not) and the MRFF was an atheist organization (it's not) .Now is this a problem?

The bullies of baseball…

Even though it doesn't feel like it for most Americans, spring really is almost upon us, and with spring comes baseball.  Unfortunately in this country, you apparently can't attend a major league game (or even other kinds of games) without being forced to participate in a religious exercise or risk opening yourself up for harassment and worse.Here's how this particular bully pulpit works.  Usually around the 6th or 7th inning, the spectators are requested to stand for the playing or signing o … [Read more...]

War_on_Christmas

Yep, here we are in the middle of December and as always, the War on Christmas is fully underway.Due to the efforts of those evil atheists and secularists and their attacks on Christianity, saying the words Merry Christmas is now illegal, which forced the great state of Texas to pass a state law guaranteeing a person's right to say Merry Christmas.What's that you say?  It's never actually been illegal to say Merry Christmas anywhere?  But what about that time I went shopping and the c … [Read more...]

UPDATED: Delusions of Relevancy…

UPDATE (original report below)Todd Starnes has produced a followup report where, despite an inaccurate and intentionally misleading headline, he exhibits a temporary bit of sanity by reporting exactly what I stated in my original report.  Starnes admits that the Army did not categorize the AFA as a hate group and that the slideshow presentation was locally produced without input from official policy or higher leadership.  Read for yourself here:Pentagon admits Christian ministry is not a … [Read more...]

Unfair and Unbalanced..

If Fox News, self-purported to be “fair and balanced” while not being either fair or balanced, didn’t have such a large viewership/readership, I’d give their journalistic efforts no credibility and lump them in with World Net Daily and the other nutty news sources infesting the internet and radio waves.  However, they do have viewers, listeners, and readers, which means there is an unfortunately large number of Americans who believe this network actually produces real news  and relevant, thoughtf … [Read more...]

On The Way to Thor’s Hammer….

vacross

An interesting thing happened at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in July (2013), to little fanfare and even less media coverage; the VA approved the addition of the "Hammer of Thor" to their list of symbols allowed to be placed on the tombstones at the grave sites of veterans who are buried in veteran cemeteries.  The newly approved symbol is intended for the practitioners of a form of paganism that worships the Norse pantheon, including Thor, and looks like … [Read more...]

Naval_Academy_Chapel

Recently, I learned that Naval Academy's beautiful chapel has one major flaw - if you aren't Christian and want to use the facility for your wedding, that's just too bad, because unless you are a Christian, this government owned and operated facility isn't for you.See here for details:Naval Academy Refuses Use of Chapel for Non-Christian WeddingThere are plenty of atheists, humanists, and others of a secular bent who want to enjoy the formal trappings of a formal wedding without the … [Read more...]
