Far and away the most arrogant headline I’ve ever seen: How Christianity Invented Children.

I couldn’t believe this article in The Week:   Of course I immediately asked myself the obvious question: is this a joke?  Am I being punked by a Poe? Nope.  Here’s the first paragraph: We have forgotten just how deep a cultural revolution Christianity wrought. In fact, we forget about it precisely because of how [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Mike Huckabee claims pro equality SCOTUS decision would criminalize Christianity.

Did you know that if the Supreme Court legalizes marriage equality that it will, in essence, criminalize Christianity?  Thanks Mike Huckabee for this scoop: “If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to [Read More...]

FAITH, LAW, & HIGH SCHOOL: Denver school settles with the AHA, ends program that incentivized evangelizing.

Last November I wrote about how a couple Denver-area schools were getting sued by the American Humanist Association for having teachers helping students to Evangelize.  One specific example was with Operation Christmas Child with the SkyView Academy: Many details were left out of this story.  For the fundraisers such as Operation Christmas Child the teachers distributed empty [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Mat Staver: it is a Christian’s duty to disobey pro-equality rulings.

Mat Staver, from the Liberty Counsel, has posted a piece in the Christian Post admonishing Christians to disobey equality laws that will result if the SCOTUS rules in favor of marriage equality: “This is the redline we will not cross. While no one wants this conflict, we have no choice but to resist an unjust [Read More...]

FAITH: Dennis Prager: California is having a drought because we’re “worshiping nature.”

Dennis Prager knows why California is experiencing a drought: too much care about the environment: “A false god is one that you really do worship because you think it is godlike. God created nature. Nature is subservient to God. Nature is created for the human being. Today it is the opposite. Where I live in [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Two North Carolina Churches vandalized with pro-equality messages. This is wrong.

I saw an article in my special twitter feed yesterday about two North Carolina churches that were defaced with pro-gay rights messages: Officials at Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown arrived last Saturday to find the church sign broken and pelted with eggs and silly string. Some of the church windows had been smashed, flowers [Read More...]

FAITH: 14 year-old boy dies in school shooting, sheriff says we need prayer in schools.

Earlier this week in Elkhart, Indiana there was a school shooting that cost a 14 year-old boy his life.  The county held a summit where possible solutions to school violence, like more patrols from the local Sheriff’s department, were discussed.  Sadly, there’s always somebody eager to use a tragedy like this for their own group’s [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Matt Barber: Gay marriage is rooted in fraud and child rape.

I saw this positively vile tweet from Matt Barber in my special twitter feed this weekend: Apparently “because they love each other” is too unbelievable an explanation for why two people would want to get married.  He’ll believe a guy rose from the dead and walked on water, that a god killed every person on [Read More...]

FAITH: The most ironic pair of facebook posts I’ve ever seen.

Some of my friends and I monitor the facebook page of the parent of one of our friends (who shall remain nameless here for their sake).  This man, previously a pastor and radio Evangelist, has provided countless laughs with everything from wanting Sarah Palin to run for President with Phil Robertson as her VP to [Read More...]

FAITH: Top Muslims cleric announces a husband doesn’t need a wife’s consent for sex.

So what is god telling his leaders in the Islamic faith?  The cure for cancer?  The solution to poverty and hunger? No, silly.  God’s telling them that a wife’s bodily autonomy doesn’t belong to her, but to her husband: A man may have sex with his wife without her consent, according to a new fatwa from Deputy [Read More...]
