FAITH & POLITICS: Mississippi passes bill that would allow people to drive church vans without the proper license.

Mississippi doesn’t seem content to let Arkansas and Alabama be the unquestioned kings of religious stupidity.  The Mississippi House just passed a bill that would allow people to drive church vans without the relevant driver’s license: House members on Thursday [Feb. 5] passed a bill exempting mid-sized church buses from the state’s commercial driver’s license requirements, [Read More…]

Religious Belief: Taking the Red Pill

Recently, the Atheist Experience uploaded ancient episodes they had aired from long ago. This weekend I’m listening to episodes from 1999.

We’re having the same discussions now that we [Read More…]

GAY RIGHTS, LAW, & POLITICS: Arkansas House passes anti-gay bill, governor will let it become law.

I wrote last week about how the Arkansas Senate passed a bill that would prohibit all Arkansas towns from passing non-discrimination ordinances that include LGBT people.  Thankfully, the lone gay holdout in Arkansas scrambled to pass such an ordinance before the House could pass the measure, setting up a potential lawsuit.

GAY RIGHTS & LAW: The Alabama probate judge who was the first to get it right.

For all the probate judges in Alabama who got it wrong (here’s one example thanks to Jasper this morning), here’s a good story of one who got it right.  Probate Judge Steven Reed was the first such judge in Alabama to declare he’d be handing out same-sex marriage licenses last Monday.  When asked by ABC [Read More…]

Valentine’s Day Adventures: the wine!

Ok, not joking: this wine, which we’ve only ever found in Lawrence, is the straight up shiz.  Seriously.  We got a few bottles for today and I recommend it to everybody.
