Members of a North Carolina church kidnapped a man and tried to beat homosexual demons out of him.

Oh, you find other men attractive?  That’s way worse than kidnapping a person and beating their ass: Five members of a controversial North Carolina church were indicted this week on charges that they kidnapped and assaulted a fellow member because he had been possessed by “homosexual demons.” On Monday, a Rutherford County grand jury indicted [Read More...]

City of Pitman, NJ and Clear Channel Outdoor discriminating against atheists.

A town in New Jersey is discriminating against its atheistic residents and a billboard company is barring a secular organization from putting up billboards within a half mile of any church. Earlier today I told you a happy holiday story.  Get ready for a sad one. Two years ago in the small town of Pitman, [Read More...]

Michele Bachmann’s final speech in Congress (yay!) credits Moses for all our fortune (boo!).

In Michele Bachmann’s final speech in the House, she elected to thank Moses for America’s success.  The parts in red are my thoughts while reading her speech: “And as I look about this chamber, we are ringed with the silhouettes of lawgivers throughout history,” Bachmann continued, referencing the 23 marble relief portraits in the House [Read More...]

Bill Donohue needs our help.

Fox News is fair and balanced, we all know that.  Which is why their coverage of the American Atheists billboard campaign has perplexed me.

The moral hypocrisy of the religious right.

I thought I was done with the torture report story, but I’ve been sitting here stewing about it all morning and I don’t think I am.  I didn’t say enough about Bush and Cheney as well as the people who elected them. Bush won election and re-election by pandering to fundamentalist Christians.  He did this [Read More...]

Pastor who bragged online of leading public school students in prayer claims he never led students in prayer.

Two schools in Michigan have been allowing Pastor Russ Gabel of Freewater Experience Ministries to come onto their campuses and run the Freewater club, which is pretty much just him getting time with students (which is against the law, since religious clubs must be student led).  The good news is that after receiving letters warning of [Read More...]
