Pat Robertson: the left-wing is where the fanatics are.

Pat Robertson wants you to know that he’s the one with “good sense of the world.”  The left wing though, that’s where the extremists and fanatics are: “The president has been willing to destroy the health supply of our entire nation to accommodate the left-wing, this is left-wing ideology and we’ve got to resist it.

World Vision reminds the future where our bigotry came from.

A charity group called World Vision initially did something cool this week – they kinda sorta said gay people who were married could work for them.  For a Christian group this type of baby step represents a journey to the metaphorical moon. However, World Vision soon realized that this baby step was too much for [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: dog shares his peanut butter jar.

This dog was given an empty peanut butter jar.  It proceeded to share it with its stuffed animal companion: When I saw this, what popped into my mind was Hemant’s post from this morning about World Vision.  When World Vision announced it would let gay people help them feed starving children, thousands of Christian donors [Read More...]

Your wedding is an important day.  It demands only the finest vestments, the most magnificent haberdashery that money can buy.  No expense should be spared and no imperfection tolerated.

Oklahoma pastor says he caused flooding by praying too hard.

An Oklahoma preacher is patting himself on the back for ending a drought in Texas in Oklahoma through the power of prayer. An Oklahoma pastor this week said that his attempt to remove demons from the United States had worked a little too well, causing a severe drought to turn into massive flooding. In an [Read More...]

The bill just came in for all those Benghazi investigations the GOP wanted…

Remember when the GOP was desperately trying to pin the Benghazi tragedy on Obama, only to finally have to admit that the outcome could not have been changed?  Yeah, the Pentagon just announced… Congress’ multiple investigations of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, have cost the Pentagon millions of [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Jesus wouldn’t have baked a gay couple a wedding cake.

It’s a pretty slow day in the news (which, for the type of content I use, is a pretty happy thing).  But if the lord doesn’t provide content, Pat Robertson sure will.  He thinks gay people have become the oppressors…because they’re getting closer and closer to being treated like everybody else. “I think you got [Read More...]

The rest of my thoughts on Andrea Yates.

In talks I have often cited Andrea Yates, one of many women to have killed her children because god supposedly told her to do so.  I’ve done this to draw a parallel: Christians think Abraham was noble for obeying the voices he heard commanding him to commit filicide, but they think Andrea Yates was insane.

Comics on Hobby Lobby and being a good person.

*sigh*  It’s looking like the SCOTUS will rule in favor of Hobby Lobby, allowing them to be exempted from laws that bind everybody else because of their religion.  That makes this comic that Keith Lowell Jensen tweeted pretty apropos: What other laws can you get out of because of religious convictions?  If you don’t believe [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: must be demons or rape.

The day couldn’t go well forever.  Here’s a clip of Pat Robertson saying “You can’t know what’s going on in people’s heads” right after he suspects a woman’s aversion to Christianity may be due to childhood rape or demonic possession: Because it’s common knowledge that a person can’t be unconvinced a person rose from the [Read More...]

Bill Donohue won’t march in Pride Parade because of “gay training sessions”…which don’t exist.

Much like American Atheists president David Silverman going into a field of opposing thought by attending CPAC, the Catholic League’s very own Bill Donohue applied to march in this year’s LGBT Pride Parade in New York City.  Donohue was accepted, but said he would not march because of mandatory “gay training sessions”.  Donohue said on [Read More...]
