A man, let’s call him Jason (that’s not his real name), came into the “I respect all spiritual beliefs” thread last night and had a thing or two to say. He started with: Let’s see… As a 5th grader explained to me…so death is the worst thing that can happen to us on earth… But [...]
Gag me. My mother alerted me to the facebook wall of a friend of hers where a woman by the name of Wendy was saying some peculiar things. My mother’s friend had said: Riddle me this…a group of people are right in the path of an ACT OF GOD. All of them pray, “please save [...]
When Hurricane Katrina annihilated New Orleans, Pat Robertson knew why it all happened. It was because of legalized abortion. Or maybe even because the city was so accommodating to gay people, since on August 6 1998 Robertson threatened the participants of the Orlando, Florida, Gay Pride Festival, stating: “I would warn Orlando that you’re right [...]
I just read an article from the Christian Post titled Where Was God During the Boston Marathon? This paragraph concisely captures the desperation with which so many Christians attempt to defend god’s absence. In the meantime, instead of focusing on all the evil which seems to permeate every crack and crevice of this planet, we [...]
We did a podcast with Heina Dadabhoy and talked about Islam and the ways to criticize it.

So, remember when Anna L. Pierre said she was endorsed by Jesus Christ in her bid to be mayor of Miami? She said she knew Jesus endorsed her because of three signs which she said she wouldn’t discuss publicly. Well, I just read one of them: Pierre had told the Miami Herald Jesus came to [...]
My favorite whipping boy, Mark Shea, has a post up about disgraced Cardinal Keith O’Brien, who resigned over groping men in his charge, including teenage boys. Apparently O’Brien leaving his post of his own accord shows how awesome the Catholic Church is: Vatican announcement: Disgraced Cardinal O’Brien leaving Scotland for “penance and prayer”… Memo for [...]
Anna L. Pierre, who said that Jesus had endorsed her to run for mayor of Miami, came away with 56% of the vote. Wait…not 56% of the vote…she just got 56 votes. Total. Of course, you won’t hear her say “Gosh, I guess I read too much into naturally occurring phenomenon and wrongly interpreted it [...]
