Paul Ryan: Prayer is doing something!

At the National Prayer Breakfast the other day Paul Ryan said about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard (so at least he picked the right venue for it): I’ve noticed a growing impatience, though, with prayer in our culture these days.

Dr. Darrel Ray helps keep religious group from proselytizing to an elementary school.

Recently elementary students at Kellybrooke Elementary School raised money to feed the homeless for the City Union Mission right here in Kansas City.  This is ordinarily cool — pretty much every atheist is all for helping the homeless (as opposed to, say, constructing enormous masturbatory crosses) — except there’s one problem: that money doesn’t go just [Read More...]

Group erecting the biggest cross in history.

Hemant has posted about a group trying to build the biggest giant cross in history — 19 stories tall! This structure, like all giant crosses, will be functionally derelict.  It’s kind of like owning the biggest truck in town because your penis is totally the largest.  At least the truck can still guzzle shitloads of [Read More...]
