The bill just came in for all those Benghazi investigations the GOP wanted…

Remember when the GOP was desperately trying to pin the Benghazi tragedy on Obama, only to finally have to admit that the outcome could not have been changed?  Yeah, the Pentagon just announced… Congress’ multiple investigations of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, have cost the Pentagon millions of [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Jesus wouldn’t have baked a gay couple a wedding cake.

It’s a pretty slow day in the news (which, for the type of content I use, is a pretty happy thing).  But if the lord doesn’t provide content, Pat Robertson sure will.  He thinks gay people have become the oppressors…because they’re getting closer and closer to being treated like everybody else. “I think you got [Read More...]

The rest of my thoughts on Andrea Yates.

In talks I have often cited Andrea Yates, one of many women to have killed her children because god supposedly told her to do so.  I’ve done this to draw a parallel: Christians think Abraham was noble for obeying the voices he heard commanding him to commit filicide, but they think Andrea Yates was insane.

Comics on Hobby Lobby and being a good person.

*sigh*  It’s looking like the SCOTUS will rule in favor of Hobby Lobby, allowing them to be exempted from laws that bind everybody else because of their religion.  That makes this comic that Keith Lowell Jensen tweeted pretty apropos: What other laws can you get out of because of religious convictions?  If you don’t believe [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: must be demons or rape.

The day couldn’t go well forever.  Here’s a clip of Pat Robertson saying “You can’t know what’s going on in people’s heads” right after he suspects a woman’s aversion to Christianity may be due to childhood rape or demonic possession: Because it’s common knowledge that a person can’t be unconvinced a person rose from the [Read More...]

Bill Donohue won’t march in Pride Parade because of “gay training sessions”…which don’t exist.

Much like American Atheists president David Silverman going into a field of opposing thought by attending CPAC, the Catholic League’s very own Bill Donohue applied to march in this year’s LGBT Pride Parade in New York City.  Donohue was accepted, but said he would not march because of mandatory “gay training sessions”.  Donohue said on [Read More...]

Florida scraps plans to expand voucher program.

Man, you get a full night’s rest (and then some) and the world just gets brighter and full of joy.  Suddenly there are puppies sleeping with babies, creationists put out over not getting to include their pitch in a science program, and now the Florida state government scrapping a bill to expand their voucher program.

Creationists feel wronged since they weren’t included in a show about science.

Some of the peeps at Answers in Genesis are upset.  After being unwilling to challenge the conclusions of science through the avenue of peer review, they feel persecuted because their views are not being included in a show about the conclusions confirmed through the avenue of peer review.  This is a bit like thinking you’re [Read More...]
