Child raping priest arrested in New Jersey.

What if, in the wake of a priest raping your kid, instead of going to an organization that has failed repeatedly to address child rape within its own ranks you went to the police who, for the most part, have no vested interest in protecting the Church’s PR/pocket book?  Then stuff like this happens: A [Read More...]

Pastor: school saying he can’t go pray with football team is trying to turn him into an atheist.

Oh this old argument: if you’re not letting me trot onto a public school ground to evangelize you’re inhibiting my freedom of speech.  Gag me. A Florida chaplain on Thursday accused a secular group of trying to turn him into an atheist because he was no longer allowed to pray with students at high school [Read More...]

Professor Tim D. White answers creationist student.

I’m so confused.  In the movie God’s Not Dead I learned that if you question your college professor he’ll make it his life’s mission to destroy your career and embarrass you. But then I see this video from an actual biology class at the University of California, Berkeley by esteemed anthropologist Tim D. White where a [Read More...]

Kevin Sorbo: atheists are angry because they know god exists.

So…Kevin Sorbo (who was forced to apologize when he claimed the protesters in Ferguson were losers and animals) wasn’t exactly typecast as a philosopher or a professor.  He recently said in an interview that atheists are angry because they believe god exists:  God Is Not Dead actor Kevin Sorbo provided one answer to the question [Read More...]

Phoenix police arresting sex workers and giving them the choice between church and jail.

In Phoenix the police have taken to a new tactic for ending prostitution.  Keep arresting prostitutes, but give them the choice between church or jail: Project ROSE, a program he started in 2011 along with Arizona State University Prof. Dominique Roe-Sepowitz, whose expertise is in social work. The goal is simple and, many would say, [Read More...]

Teacher-led religious club at Texas middle school disbanded.

The law is very clear when it comes to school clubs: religious clubs can meet, but the faculty sponsor of the club cannot evangelize within them (just as an atheist teacher couldn’t tell a religious student they were wrong) and most certainly cannot use class time to preach.  A teacher at a Texas middle school [Read More...]

Game of Thrones could be impacted by Church’s distaste for nudity.

This is one of mine and Michaelyn’s date show.  :(  It’s possible one of the crucial scenes, which involves nudity (in GoT?  *gasp*) will have to be altered because the Church has influence over a commission that is saying you can’t film sexy times in their city: There is an important scene in George R.R. [Read More...]

Preacher thinks gays should be sentenced to 10 years in forced labor camps.

Christian love (and consistency) on full display.  I know what you’re thinking: this video sucks.  That’s what happens when you burn the whole budget on the special effects: Yes, gay people are unwilling to compromise with Christians like Wilson, when all those Christians want is to throw them into labor camps.  Geez, those homosexuals are [Read More...]

Australia requests documents to investigate papal child abuse. Vatican says no.

Remember when the Vatican said they were going to crack down on child-raping priests (but would be fighting any police efforts to crack down on them unless legally forced to do so), and then the UN said they were failing at it, and then the Vatican responded by essentially saying they were only going to crack down on [Read More...]

Bryan Fischer: everybody is instinctively repulsed by homosexuality.

It starts with god, according to Bryan Fischer.  When god sees two men/two women getting it on he recoils in disgust…and presumably that’s why two people who love each other shouldn’t be able to marry, because that’s sure to stop them from having sex: If god finds it so repulsive, why did he make me [Read More...]
