Suicidal lesbian Marine Corps vet seeks help, gets Jesus instead

Esther Garatie is a hero to our nation, serving in the Marine Corps in war-time. She also happens to be a lesbian.But that shouldn't matter. Not when she checks into a Dallas-area VA hospital for treatment for severe depression - including suicidal thoughts. She wanted help, and was brave enough to actually ask for it.She had been battling PTSD-like symptoms before she even received her Honorable Discharge. Rather than help, an evangelical Christian nurse took it upon herself to preach … [Read more...]

This is what happens when you die, it’s a fact.

It's a fact:When you die you go to Rainbow Road.I'm pretty sure this is a fact, anyway:http://www.youtube.com/embed/FuX5_OWObA0?Win.Please let me know if you have more examples of absurd material like this... preferably related to religion / atheism in the same loose manner. I'm craving more! Deployment is winding down and boring, and this had us all rolling.Leave your links in the comments please. … [Read more...]

Pabst Yellow Ribbon Campaign

These yellow ribbons, stickers, and magnets are pointless and only benefit the makers of ribbons, stickers, and magnets.Find a soldier, veteran, or military spouse and just say "Thank you."Bonus points: beer is another way to spend about the same amount of money as the ribbon would have cost. That's why I'm dubbing this the 'Pabst Yellow Ribbon Campaign'.Check out all the ways you can give thanks and/or beer: … [Read more...]

TX Judge’s child abuse video brings out fans of child abuse

I was reading the r/offbeat subreddit a few hours ago. I noticed that reddit was hopping all over the story of Texas Judge William Adams - who repeatedly beat his 16 year old daughter with a belt in a disturbing videotape.I clicked through to the story and I saw so many comments like this:I really wish I could click on Report abuse and CPS would show up at these people's houses, looking for signs of being beaten with a Bible Belt. This is way beyond 'spanking' and 'smacking' a … [Read more...]

Amazingly, this just happened.http://www.youtube.com/embed/7XQXBAGQ7xY?I already typed this into YouTube's description, so forgive the 3rd person narrative.The Chaplain respectfully leaves off "so help me god" for the deployed atheist soldier's re-enlistment ceremony.Chaplain (Colonel) Strohm is overseeing Sergeant Justin Griffith's re-enlistment ceremony. The Chaplain is a devout Christian with decades of active-duty service.Sergeant Griffith is the Military Director for … [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...]

Don’t buy ‘pray for our troops’ ribbons, buy the troops a beer

 ...Seriously.The "Pray for our troops" ribbons, stickers, and magnets have only proven to help the makers of ribbons, stickers, and magnets. For the same price, you can just buy one of us a beer.I showed a few (religious) soldiers this today. Typical reply: "Hell yeah!" We already have armor and technology to protect us. We have doctors to mend the wounds that can be healed. Some still wont make it, and the ones that do will proudly raise a glass in their honor.I … [Read more...]
