Article in Christianity Today: The Real Problem with Female Masturbation.

Ed Brayton blogged about this article that must be seen to be believed.  It starts out: It’s refreshing to finally hear women talking about female masturbation. Given the social stigma around the topic, it can be difficult just to bring it up. Yes, where could that stigma possibly come from?  Maybe…religious taboos?  Most atheists I [Read More...]

Group of clergy sue North Carolina for religious freedom…to marry gay couples!

Well this is unexpected (and kind of awesome): In a twist on the conservative argument over the separation of church and state, a group of clergymen filed suit in North Carolina today challenging state laws that make it illegal for them to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples within their congregations.

Ex-KKK leader was caught with a black male prostitute.

I was reading up this morning on the KKK leader who opened fire on a Kansas City Jewish retirement home and shouted “Heil Hitler” as he was being arrested.  Not exactly a winner.  And I came across something that made me double take: In the course of their investigation, authorities also learned the stunning details [Read More...]

GOP Senate candidates in Iowa love Jesus as much as they hate saying sensible things.

A religious right group in Iowa called The Family Leader recently held a forum for GOP candidates for the senate.  They could’ve just done a tour of an asshole factory and saved time. First there was the obligatory fearmongering.  You know how mobsters will give their victims the old “If you don’t pay your protection [Read More...]

How John Paul II became a saint.

So John Paul II gets to be a saint.  A woman named Floribeth Mora Diaz recalls how John Paul II saved her from an aneurysm: In 2011, Mora was suffering from persistent headaches and was told by doctors that her days were numbered.

Birmingham police chief decides to spit on the FFRF’s generosity.

Recall how police chief A.C. Roper is deploying police resources toward spreading Christianity. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, being the nice guys they are, gave Roper a chance to stop breaking the law.  They sent him a letter essentially saying “Stop breaking the law and we won’t sue you.”  Roper has decided to continue breaking [Read More...]

Gay weddings back to being invalidated in Tennessee.

Last month I wrote with excitement about the judge in Tennessee who ruled that the marriages of three gay couples that moved to TN from other states must be recognized.  Sadly, TN’s attorney general has won a stay in the ruling: Three same-sex Tennessee couples’ marriages — granted recognition last month by a Nashville federal [Read More...]

Sarah Palin: “Waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

Sarah Palin was speaking at the NRA’s annual meeting this weekend.  It was there she decided to announce her ambivalence to torture.  But that wasn’t enough.  She had to include religious language as if to say “Christianity has done nothing to increase my opposition to torture.” “C’mon! Enemies who would utterly annihilate America, they would [Read More...]

Apparently, they have a major shortage of male councilors this year, and are in desperate need of volunteers. If they don’t get them, then up to [Read More...]

Interview with atheist Congressional candidate James Woods part 1.

I was fortunate enough this weekend to get to sit down for about 45 minutes with James Woods who is running for the House of Representatives out of the state of Arizona.  Woods is a fascinating person because (among other reasons) he is an atheist and blind.  This makes him an anomaly in politics.  What’s [Read More...]
