We stopped off at the Russell Stover factory in the middle of nowhere, Kansas. We scoured the on site store to find every package that said, “I love you, mom” and took pictures to send to my mother. (Click the image to make them bigger, mom) And here are some bonus pics: Because we [Read More…]
580 miles to Denver! Michaelyn is taking the first leg of the trip. Ok, not the best picture. But still, I’m blogging from a cell phone (which has more processing power than my first desktop computer). Oh my FSM the future is awesome. What should we see between here and Colorado Springs? Biggest ball of [Read More…]
Good morning, everybody! Michaelyn is on Spring Break so we’ve decided to spend the next several days in Colorado walking in the mountains/the Garden of the Gods. Oh, and I’ll probably eat marijuana again since the first time was so fun. Anyway, we’re going to spend the day road-tripping. I’ll attempt to post pictures. [Read More…]
Judge Don Davis is a probate judge in Mobile County, Alabama. He was the only judge in a high-population portion of the state that initially defied Federal Judge Granade’s order to begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses after the state’s gay marriage ban was ruled to be unconstitutional. A lawsuit was filed and the judge who heard [Read More…]
For all of Roy Moore’s talk on family values, how has that worked out for his family? Meet Caleb Moore, Roy’s son who, until recently, had a twitter account that was open to the public. Man, he’s the son of a rich, old white guy. I’m not sure it gets much more gangsta than that. [Read More…]
Santorum speaking at The Awakening Conference (where people go to get awakened to the fact that their religion *gasp* doesn’t run everything), an event for the Liberty Counsel on Saturday, was stumping for getting bibles back into public schools: “The reason Bibles are no longer in the public schools is because we let them take them [Read More…]
I’m so glad the American Atheist convention is going to be in Tennessee. It seems they need it: Somehow their conclusion is that equal rights are evil, not that Satan isn’t so bad and that god’s a bit of a jerk. We always hear from apologists that “with secular morality anything goes because there’s no [Read More…]
SCIENCE: Anti-vax biologist offers €100,000 prize to anybody who can prove the existence of Measles. Court rules he has to pay it.
Stefan Lanka is a biologist who, somehow, doesn’t believe Measles exists. He’s so confident about this he offered a €100,000 prize (about $105,890) to anybody who could prove that Measles exists as a legit disease rather than as a psychosomatic illness. Readers of this blog may recall Kent Hovind’s infamous $250,000 challenge to anybody who [Read More…]
FAITH, HIGH SCHOOL, & LAW: Texas superintendent has a change of heart after receiving a letter from the FFRF.
Just last week I wrote about how Michael Gilbert, the Superintendent of the White Oak School District in Texas, said he wouldn’t be stopping a high school principal from reading scripture over the loudspeaker every day (to read my rebuttals to all this, follow the previous link): He argued that the FFRF should be ignored [Read More…]
I’m back from Columbia and what a lovely time it was. The organizers did a spectacular job, turnout was good, and all the speakers were fantastic. A couple of angry Christians stormed out of my talk when I asserted that genocide by flood might not have been a very compassionate move by god. Ah well. [Read More…]
Creflo Dollar is a prosperity gospel megachurch preacher at the World Changers church in Atlanta. His last name is very telling. It turns out his church’s private jet is getting a bit old, so he wants a new one – and not just any private jet. Pastor Dollar wants the best of the best of [Read More…]
FAITH: Catholic Church argues paying for lost child rape lawsuits burdens their religion. 7th Circuit rules against them.
Timothy Dolan, who was a candidate to become pope this last time around, is…not a great person. For one, he shuffled child-raping priests off to new locations. Also, some priests in his charge raped a bunch of kids back in the day and won a lawsuit against the diocese. So Dolan moved $50 million into a cemetery maintenance fund [Read More…]
POLITICS & GAY RIGHTS: American Thinker says Obama will strike down gay marriage bans to make us more Islamic.
American Thinker is a very ironically named conservative site, which makes it a lovely outlet for humor on occasion. Today they have an article for Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison (both from the Family Research Council, which uses the word “research” as ironically as American Thinker uses “thinker”) suggesting that Obama plans to make America [Read More…]
