James David Manning advocates stoning gay people to death.

I can’t help but notice that this nut hasn’t been arrested for attempted murder yet, which means he’s all about other people, not himself, stoning homosexuals to death: James David Manning, a pastor from New York City, is calling for Christians to stone gays. Manning’s ATLAH World Missionary Church has a new announcement: ‘Jesus would [Read More...]

Church explosion kills eight, bible is spared.

Why am I reading reports about a church destroyed by a gas explosion where they found a single bible intact? A single Bible was recovered from the ashes of an evangelical church that was destroyed by the explosion last week in New York City’s Harlem. Natural gas might have triggered Wednesday’s blast in East Harlem [Read More...]

On religious ground constitutional advisory board in Pakistan seeks to abolish of minimum age for girls to be married.

The Council of Islamic Ideology in Pakistan is a “recommendatory body that advises parliament in the law-making process, but cannot enact laws on its own.”  And boy, does it have a pretty fucked up recommendation to make: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) on Tuesday ruled that Pakistani laws prohibiting marriage of underage children are [Read More...]

Fred Phelps on the verge of death. I’ll be glad he’s gone, and that’s where it stops for me.

If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? ~ Shylock, The Merchant of Venice So Fred Phelps is on the verge of death.  The big question on everybody’s mind, it [Read More...]

Answering a few questions from the debate thread.

I really wanted to stick to more uplifting stories today…but there just aren’t a lot of them.  So I’m going to answer some questions I got asked in the Brummit vs. Eberhard debate thread by wtfwjtd:  1) In his opening gambit, Aaron seemed to suggest that we have the ability choose the reality in which we [Read More...]

The new Cosmos is awesome (and pulls zero punches)!

Yesterday Michaelyn and I finally got to see the new Cosmos.  Holy shit…not only was Neil DeGrasse Tyson fantastic (his story about meeting Carl Sagan tugged at the heartstrings like none other), but the show gave no quarter to religion.  The most telling part was when they were telling the story of Giordano Bruno.  For [Read More...]

Police Chief in Birmingham, Alabama using police to evangelize and not even trying to hide it.

The FFRF’s Andrew Seidel has put out a video detailing a case on which they are currently working: The real part that hit home for me was when Roper said “I know as Police Chief that we can’t do this alone.”  There’s a real vote of confidence for the officers serving the Birmingham area.  It [Read More...]

God loves the guy who didn’t board Malaysia Airlines 370 way more than all those other poor souls.

This man is a pretentious clod: All-knowing, all-powerful god knew the plane was going to crash.  He watched 239 other people board it, watched as it plummeted from the sky, watched each and ever one of those people die in about the most horrific way imaginable – as he knew they would – and did [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Watching porn/horror movies gives car-wrecking demons permission to possess you.

More gold from Pat Robertson.  A woman asks him: I was watching a horror movie the other day on the recommendation of others.  It was rather strange and awfully macabre.  And then this past Sunday, I got into an accident leaving church.  Did watching that creepy movie cause a curse – or the lord’s protection [Read More...]

Man murders his three year-old son attempting exorcism.

Hey gang.  Michaelyn’s stomach is still hitting her with stabbing pain whenever she stands up.  Might go to a doctor if it keeps up.  :(  Anyway, she’s staying home.  I’m gonna post some real quick stuff and go back to her. I wouldn’t keep reading this particular post if you’re weak of stomach.  A father [Read More...]
