I weighed myself again.

When I got married I weighed 210 lbs. A little over four weeks ago I weighed 208.6. Today I weighed 196.4. How can I not be happy about that? I can do pull-ups again. That’s where it starts. Then you try to eat less, so stepping onto the scale next time will feel even better. [Read More...]

Teacher-led religious club at Texas middle school disbanded.

The law is very clear when it comes to school clubs: religious clubs can meet, but the faculty sponsor of the club cannot evangelize within them (just as an atheist teacher couldn’t tell a religious student they were wrong) and most certainly cannot use class time to preach.  A teacher at a Texas middle school [Read More...]

Game of Thrones could be impacted by Church’s distaste for nudity.

This is one of mine and Michaelyn’s date show.  :(  It’s possible one of the crucial scenes, which involves nudity (in GoT?  *gasp*) will have to be altered because the Church has influence over a commission that is saying you can’t film sexy times in their city: There is an important scene in George R.R.

Article about pastor who died trying to walk on water was inaccurate.

That’s what I get for not digging further.  My bad.  Took the article down and posting this to help fix it: This story initially went viral in 2006 after WND, the Christian tabloid that cares little about the truth, posted about it. It’s been repeated in severalsources ever since. Needless to say, WND is not [Read More...]

Preacher thinks gays should be sentenced to 10 years in forced labor camps.

Christian love (and consistency) on full display.  I know what you’re thinking: this video sucks.  That’s what happens when you burn the whole budget on the special effects: Yes, gay people are unwilling to compromise with Christians like Wilson, when all those Christians want is to throw them into labor camps.  Geez, those homosexuals are [Read More...]

My inert brain.

It was actually a busy day in the news.  I have lots more to write about, but I think it will have to wait until tomorrow. I weighed myself a bit ago.  It was the first time in four or five days, I think.  I weighed 208 late last month and today I’m at 198.2.  I [Read More...]

Australia requests documents to investigate papal child abuse. Vatican says no.

Remember when the Vatican said they were going to crack down on child-raping priests (but would be fighting any police efforts to crack down on them unless legally forced to do so), and then the UN said they were failing at it, and then the Vatican responded by essentially saying they were only going to crack down on [Read More...]

Sarah Palin angry at Tina Fey for making her look stupid.

Sarah Palin is not happy with Tina Fey.  Palin thinks Fey’s famous impersonation of her made Palin look “stupid”: In an excerpt from the new edition of SNL tell-all “Live From New York,”printed in the Hollywood Reporter, Palin had this to say about her decision to be a guest on the show: “I know that [Read More...]

Wikipedia had to ban congressional staffer making transphobic edits.

The other day I wrote about how we, the tax-payers, have paid House staffers to edit the wikipedia entry for the choco taco.  It turns out that some staffers spend a lot of time on wikipedia not just trolling, but being actively deceitful and hateful to the LGBT community – so much so that wikipedia [Read More...]
