Mike Deangelo sees Hobby Lobby’s dishonest quote-mining and raises us…the same dishonest quote.

Earlier I posted about the FFRF’s glorious smackdown of Hobby Lobby’s dishonesty regarding the founding fathers.  It wasn’t long before a believer by the name of Mike Deangelo found his way into the comments and, rather than condemning or defending Hobby Lobby’s dishonest quote mining, started throwing out more quotes.  This was apparently done in [Read More...]

Girl scouts drop “to love my god” from their official promise.

The girl scouts have dropped the obligation “to love my God” from their official promise. A lifelong girl scout who can finally recite the promise with a clear conscience shares her elation at the change and talks of what it means to people like her: What the new wording of our Promise does is help [Read More...]

Theist kills atheist over argument about god’s existence.

A couple dudes got into an argument the other day over whether or not god exists.  The Christian closed his case by shooting the nonbeliever. Yim killed 25-year-old Dzuy Duhn Phan after a night of partying and playing video games. Another friend, Paul Park, testified the two men had engaged in a heated discussion about [Read More...]

Tim Tebow is out of a job because he can’t throw, not because he’s a Christian.

On Saturday the New England Patriots cut Tim Tebow, probably because in a pass-heavy offense you want a quarterback who can throw the ball and, well, Tebow can’t do that.  But many Christians are unconvinced – surely Tebow was cut for publicly being a part of the most popular religion in the United States, one [Read More...]

FFRF catches Hobby Lobby lying for Jesus and doesn’t let them get away with it.

First, some back story: The Christian trinket-purveyor Hobby Lobby places religious holiday ads in national newspapers reaching in some cases more than 47 million readers. Hobby Lobby’s July 4, 2013 ad features quotes from the founders scattered around huge font screaming, “In God We Trust.” The quotes are meant to give the false impression that the [Read More...]

Australia has some rad politicians too!

Ok, so we can’t have the same appreciation of having scientific genius present in our government as Italy, but maybe would could have some politicians who aren’t so afraid of losing the vote of religious fundamentalists that they’ll shoot them down in a ball of flame like Australia’s Prime Minister Kevin Rudd: Added Rudd: “Sit [Read More...]

Bakery that denied service to lesbian couple is closing its shop.

Earlier this year a bakery in Oregon refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple citing their religious beliefs.  You can understand the outrage that ensued, and on Saturday they closed their shop saying they would be moving the bakery to an in-home business. But they left a sign on the door: “This [Read More...]

God will have to beg my forgiveness.

I saw this image on facebook and it really hit home. I do not understand how this is not the response of every person to travesties.  If god could cure cancer and doesn’t, allowing a person to die without pain rather than with it, then god is not anything that could be considered kind.  The [Read More...]

Hospital fighting to save a young girl’s life from her parents’ beliefs.

In Ohio there is an Amish couple with the misfortune of having their daughter stricken with cancer.  Initially the couple decided god wouldn’t help their child, but that perhaps mortal doctors could (that’s a bit of snark, they actually thought god would help their daughter but that doctors would make it more likely for god [Read More...]

Ken Ham: god’s judgment looks exactly like god’s non-judgment.

A sad thing happened at the creation museum recently (you might think “people attended”, and you’d be right, but that’s not what I’m talking about).  A lightning strike charged a piece of equipment and one of their employees touched it and got shocked.  Thankfully, his injuries were minor at most. But people asked the logical [Read More...]
