Pat Robertson: Robin Williams killed himself because he worshiped false gods.

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...]

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.

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...]
