Help David Fitzgerald launch The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion!

Atheistish pictures 12/14.

Ok, that last post was a good step toward alcoholism.  So let’s go with something light-hearted here. When discussing unions with conservatives, I always enjoy pointing out that Ronald Reagan was the president of a union (the Screen Actors Guild). [Read more…]

New American Atheist billboard in Times Square.

American Atheists is back at it, waging the war on shitty ideas which many confuse with a war on Christmas/holiday cheer.  C’mon guys, it’s not like they wait until Christmas to call Christianity a myth.
