Response to Mark Sandlin’s article in TIME about wanting Christianity back.

Mark Sandlin of Patheos got himself an article published in TIME.  First thing’s first, congrats to Mark.  That’s an honor few writers achieve.  Now for some of the reasons I think his article missed the mark.  Mark writes about the baggage liberal Christians must put up with since Christianity has become associated with discrimination, scientific [Read More...]

University of Kansas to teach creationism course…my kind of creationism course.

::EDIT:: This is what I get for not checking the date on articles people send me.  This is from 2005.  Derp. ::/EDIT:: The University of Kansas is making a wonderful move to oppose creationism in a state that desperately needs it: A course being offered next semester by the university religious studies department is titled [Read More...]

Seven year-old and her sister murdered over “blasphemous” facebook posts.

Pakistan…where the moral considerations of religion are given more power than compassion.  It is a place where the notion of “Thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain” is taken very seriously; deathly seriously. A Pakistani mob killed a woman member of a religious sect and two of her granddaughters after a sect member [Read More...]

Satanists to use Hobby Lobby decision to fight anti-abortion laws.

I love the Church of Satan.  You can quote me on that. Everything the religious right tries to use “religious liberty” to do?  The Church of Satan use the same definition of “religious liberty” to do the opposite.  Funnily, the religious right’s support of “religious liberty” evaporates pretty quick when it’s someone else doing it.

AiG seeks tax incentives from the state of Kentucky for Noah’s Ark theme park.

Ok, I know I said I’m taking a personal day, and I am, but there are two more things I have to post (and the next one won’t take but a minute).  But first this. Answers in Genesis want to build a theme park in Kentucky to evangelize to mostly children, since it turns out [Read More...]

Mayor being sued by the FFRF compares atheists to Nazis and the KKK.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is back at, this time they’re suing Jim Fouts, the mayor of Warren, MI, for allowing Christian groups to dispense literature in the City Hall building, but denying atheists who wish to do the same: The American Civil Liberties Union in Michigan and two secular groups are suing the city [Read More...]

Gordon Klingenschmitt inadvertently calls Christianity demonic.

Something really great, in terms of church-state separation, happened in India a few weeks ago: Earlier this month, India’s Supreme Court ruled that fatwas issued by Sharia courts carried no legal power and could not be enforced by the government or against the will of those who refuse to abide by them. Of course when [Read More...]

Seeking to preach on someone else’s turf, Operation Save America disrupts UU service honoring a member who had died.

If you want to convince people that your church is the true church and get them to a point where they want to join, what’s the best way to do that?  Whatever it is, it’s probably not bursting uninvited into another church’s service to preach over what they’re doing.  But even if, for some silly [Read More...]

No more teacher-led prayers in Indiana school district. #ThanksFFRF

Another epic win for the FFRF.  They are on a roll: The Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) contacted the Vigo County School Corporation in Terre Haute last May after receiving a complaint from a parent after teacher Jeffrey Burress at Sarah Scott Middle School allegedly led prayer at an awards banquet. “Any prayers led by [Read More...]
