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...]

Who is paying the attorneys Boehner hired to sue Obama? GOP? Boehner? No, it’s the taxpayers.

I imagine it’s easy to file a lawsuit that even conservative legal experts say has no chance at winning, all for the sake of a political stunt, when you don’t have to foot the bill: Last January, a Washington attorney named David Rivkin co-authored an article in Politico Magazine that laid out a legal theory that Speaker [Read More...]

Probably

I’ve occasionally poked around, trying to figure out a reliable source for how many gods humanity has asserted as true. I’ve seen values from a few thousand, to 3 million. Let’s say that it was 10,000. Here’s another way to look at it. [Read more...]

The Holiness of God: Chapter 2 – Holy, Holy, Holy

Awhile back, I was explaining why I don’t get Christianity. A commenter suggested I read a book – “The Holiness of God” by RC Sproul [1985]. [Read more...]

I weighed myself again.

When I got married I weighed 210 lbs. A little over four weeks ago I weighed 208.6. Today I weighed 196.4. How can I not be happy about that? I can do pull-ups again. That’s where it starts. Then you try to eat less, so stepping onto the scale next time will feel even better. [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...]

Article about pastor who died trying to walk on water was inaccurate.

That’s what I get for not digging further.  My bad.  Took the article down and posting this to help fix it: This story initially went viral in 2006 after WND, the Christian tabloid that cares little about the truth, posted about it. It’s been repeated in severalsources ever since. Needless to say, WND is not [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...]
