A response to Samus.

Gonna take a personal day today.  I’m feeling much better, but just want to make sure I stay that way as long as possible as I’m still waiting to get into therapy.  Also people are moving into the apartment above us and I can’t hear myself think (though, even moving in furniture and drilling things, [Read More...]

House approves measure that prevent scientists in the Energy Department from doing science.

So this happened. On July 10, the House approved the fiscal 2015 Energy and Water Appropriations bill on a 253-170 vote. In the bill, Congress unfortunately cut funding for such things as renewable energy, sustainable transportation, and energy efficiency; perhaps even more worrisome, however, were a series of amendments successfully attached to the bill. Each [Read More...]

Governor of Alabama: the federal government should look to Alabama for how to run the country.

What Alabama lacks in quality of life its governor makes up for in faux confidence.  One might worry it’s troublesome for a governor to think his state is doing well when it’s one of the worst in the US in, well, pretty much everything that isn’t having good college football teams. National leaders would do [Read More...]

Blogging mental illness: another sleepless night.

I didn’t sleep last night (so I apologize for what’s sure to be a myriad of typos), but I did get to see the sunrise.  It’s Kansas, so the only silver lining was in my head, but at least it was there.  Mostly it looks like a sunset, just muggier. I’d like to think I [Read More...]

Gordon Klingenschmitt inadvertently calls Christianity demonic.

Something really great, in terms of church-state separation, happened in India a few weeks ago: Earlier this month, India’s Supreme Court ruled that fatwas issued by Sharia courts carried no legal power and could not be enforced by the government or against the will of those who refuse to abide by them. Of course when [Read More...]

Seeking to preach on someone else’s turf, Operation Save America disrupts UU service honoring a member who had died.

If you want to convince people that your church is the true church and get them to a point where they want to join, what’s the best way to do that?  Whatever it is, it’s probably not bursting uninvited into another church’s service to preach over what they’re doing.  But even if, for some silly [Read More...]

No more teacher-led prayers in Indiana school district. #ThanksFFRF

Another epic win for the FFRF.  They are on a roll: The Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) contacted the Vigo County School Corporation in Terre Haute last May after receiving a complaint from a parent after teacher Jeffrey Burress at Sarah Scott Middle School allegedly led prayer at an awards banquet. “Any prayers led by [Read More...]

How are they making 50 Shades of Grey into a movie?

Ok, I know this isn’t politics or religion, but god dammit this is my space and I’m compelled to rant. Like part of Twilight, I forced myself to read through most of 50 Shades of Not-Quite-Vanilla-Sex to see what the hype was about.  Like Twilight, I failed to achieve my goal.  I still don’t know [Read More...]

Sandy Rios: FBI agents dressed in drag are coming.

Man, thank god for Sandy Rios.  While you may have thought that Obama’s executive order forbidding the federal government from employing companies that discriminate was all about equality, think again!  It was subtle, which is probably why nobody noticed, but it also set the stage for drag-wearing FBI agents to come for the Christians. Sandy [Read More...]

Christian group fasting to stop gay marriage: participants can eat.

Apparently prayer alone wasn’t enough, a Virginia anti-gay group has decided to add fasting to its list of activities that don’t change anything to be performed while boasting of changing the world: The Virginia-based Family Foundation announced a coordinated fast earlier this month, in order to influence the US Supreme Court into rejecting same-sex marriage [Read More...]
