Operation Christmas Child and their ‘Jew boy scum’ enemies

Mikey Weinstein, the President and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation gets email. Some of it is not safe for work. This insane rant is brought to you in defense of the same program that is currently infecting McDowell County School District - Operation Christmas Child. Typical stinking jew boy Mikey to try to stop the love of Jesus to bring toys to needy children who will burn forever in the Lake of fire (like jewboy mikey will for sure) unless they are saved by the grace … [Read more...]

Internet forces Anti-gay evangelist Nurse out of the privacy closet

Nurse Lincy Pandithurai can't expect privacy anymore. This blog was just front-paged on reddit, bringing with it some internet culture usually found at the deep end of the pool. First of all, it was an incredibly shocking story, and you should read what that war-hero went through at the Dallas Veteran's Affairs hospital. Then you should sign the petition demanding that this nurse gets fired. The internet is a scary place. Anonymous-styled hacktivism has already spilled over into the … [Read more...]

Hill Street Blues actor Daniel J. Travanti needs help, seriously.

I didn't realize he had gone off he wagon, but Daniel Travanti, of 80's Cop drama 'Hill Street Blues' fame needs to go back to group / treatment. Last week he was contacting brave Florida atheist activist, EllenBeth Wachs. But he let out a bizarre rant, 'no atheists in foxholes' canard in check. EllenBeth and I trounced him, thinking we were simply encountering a religious attack (happened to both of us before, I assure you). I now regret making specific attacks about his struggle with … [Read more...]

Inspirational video of Megan Hurwitt, America’s newest Foxhole Atheist

Megan Hurwitt joined the military last week. This 44 second video of the ceremony is pretty awesome. Megan Hurwitt just joined the Texas Army National Guard. Her ceremony was in Houston, and it went like this: "I, your name." I, Megan Hurwitt. "Do solemnly swear." Do solemnly affirm.*pause* "To support and defend" To support and defend "The Constitution of the United States" the Constitution of the United States, "And the state of Texas" and the state of Texas, "against … [Read more...]

Out of Iraq, Finally.

The A.P. just released a story that claims to know that we are abandoning the concept of troops in Iraq in 2012. I wish I could comment further, but this is welcome news personally. BAGHDAD (AP) -- The U.S. is abandoning plans to keep U.S. troops in Iraq past a year-end withdrawal deadline, The Associated Press has learned. The decision to pull out fully by January will effectively end more than eight years of U.S. involvement in the Iraq war, despite ongoing concerns about its security … [Read more...]

Penn Jillette misses the point about Atheists and the Chaplaincy

I still love you, Penn - but I have to rebut you here. Penn released this video in May: http://www.youtube.com/embed/ozj8QRr9Fe8? Penn Jillette mentioned my activism's news coverage in the New York Times and the Rock Beyond Belief festival (which is most certainly 'back on', but was not at the time of this video.) This is a turning point in the push for respect and equality in the military for the atheist community, and he clearly appreciates this. In fact, a few months back he even … [Read more...]

Army Chaplain Steven Firtko ‘simply offers’ Christ to atheist soldiers

An atheist just captured a Chaplain doing the wrong thing. And he's admitting to it as part of his regular routine. The sad thing is, he is not even aware of it. His job is to tend the needs of the existing flock, not to grow it. Other than in the extremely rare context of an atheist inviting such a conversation, he has no business bringing up the (pathetic) conversion tactics like complexity (appearance of design) and "It takes more faith to be an atheist." I can't even imagine a … [Read more...]

The single best video ever made about foxhole atheists (possibly NSFW)

This is that rare combination of well-informed reporting and genuinely funny brash sarcasm. Raleigh-based A-News is the DIY equivalent to the Daily Show / Colbert Report for atheists. I have no idea why this show isn't already massively popular. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhKKLhGijuQ This entire episode is dedicated to the recently reinvigorated struggle for acceptance by foxhole atheists. Is it too early to say 'the New Foxhole Atheists'? I'm proud to be one of the major players … [Read more...]

Keep evangelism and politics out of my military funeral, sign this.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the fabrication of a controversy surrounding military funerals for veterans in Texas (my home state). Three Congressmen from Texas are in the middle of a deceptive media blitz. They are ‘standing up for’ a few private groups who like to officially incorporate their Christian prayer and ceremonies at the funerals of military veterans. The problem is, well… there is no problem! There is no ban of mentioning 'God' or 'Jesus' at funerals for veterans. These … [Read more...]
