Get ready to be depressed. Zack Kopplin ia a fuck-mothering beast. He does more to fight creationism than just about everybody in this country, and he’s done it again. He’s been digging in Louisiana to find the extent to which many biology teachers are brazenly including creationism and…it ain’t good. Some teachers are even including [Read More…]
Zack Kopplin investigates, finds even more creationism in biology classes in Louisiana than we thought.
With the pope expected to start really pushing people to fight climate change, Rick Santorum is saying that although he loves the pope he wishes he’d leave climate change to the scientists: Santorum, a devout Catholic, told Philadelphia radio host Dom Giordano on Monday that the pope should “leave science to the scientists.” His comments [Read More…]
Ol’ Huckabee is at it again: In an interview with Decision, Huckabee repeated his warning that marriage equality will lead to the “criminalization of Christianity,” saying, “When you elevate a lifestyle to the status of a civil right, I don’t think a lot of believers fully understand or comprehend that once it’s risen to that [Read More…]
In Greece v. Galloway the SCOTUS ruled that city councils could open with invocations, but they couldn’t all be from one religion.

Saying that Islam is false or that it often produces violent behavior is not Islamophobia, but this might be.
I get so tired of the term “Islamophobia” getting thrown around every time someone says Islam isn’t true or when someone (like me) points out that no other religion seems to draw out murderous adherents over cartoons. Similarly, no other religion even comes close in terms of followers who believe death is an appropriate punishment for [Read More…]
This image is awesome, not because a church is getting struck by lightning (I don’t want that), but because seeing lightning from the ground is awe-inspiring: Sure there are plenty of jokes to make about god sending a message, but I prefer not to make light of ill-befalling an institution I dislike (even if the way [Read More…]
