When Rand Paul is being the most reasonable person in your political party…

I don’t smoke pot.  However, I know someone who is most certainly not me who has done so in the past.  He said it made him lethargic and that it wasn’t a whole lot of fun.  And despite delving into the treacherous underworld of narcotics, he turned out to be a pretty decent dude (in [Read More...]

Tea Partiers boycotting FOX News for being too leftist.

The ideological purists of the Tea Party/GOP, who thought Hilary Clinton was faking an injury to get out of talking about Bengazi, are convinced that FOX News is becoming too leftist.  They are organizing a boycott of the network.  Here’s one of their leaders on why they are doing this. A leader of the boycott, [Read More...]

Life is good.

I’m still in Lawrence with mah fiancee, who prefers that I stay close enough for her to snuggle when I write.  I know it’s cliche, but I’ve never really been happier in my entire life than since we started hanging out/dating.  Not by a long shot.  And my NCAA bracket is going to thrash hers [Read More...]

Misplaced vitriol.

I got this comment from Joan Dawson on my post about the new pope failing to properly handle child rapists. Is there any reason why Patheos continues to allow this vitriole from the Atheist Channel?  Of course, anything the Catholic Church does is trashed here.  These are non-believers.  They discount any God or god. Note [Read More...]

NCAA open thread, round 1 day 2.

Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!  Who picked Harvard to win last night?  That would be me (and Michaelyn).  I had pretty good picks up until the last few games of the day…then I dropped from tied for first in the atheist pool down to tied for fifth.  Michaelyn is tied for second, and won’t let me hear the end [Read More...]

God is not the solution to eating disorders.

Will of Godless Teens had a group come into his school to talk about overeating disorders.  Awesome!  The later high school years are when a lot of eating disorders pop up. However, like charity often works with the Catholic church, combating real problems, in this case, was an excuse to talk about god.  The group [Read More...]

Survivor of Taliban assassination attempt returns to school.

Malala Yousafzai has returned to school, this time in progressive England rather than fundamentalist Muslim Pakistan.  Good for her.  Nice to see a fifteen year-old with more bravery than most adults I know.  The future is indeed bright. Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot in the head by extremists in Pakistan after campaigning for [Read More...]

North Carolina church takes a stand for gay marriage. Cool, but shouldn’t get Christians off the hook.

A North Carolina church has declared they will not perform any marriages until the state recognizes same-sex marriage. A church in Winston-Salem has decided not to allow marriages of any kind until their denomination and the state of North Carolina allow same sex marriages. Members of the Leadership Council of Green Street United Methodist Church [Read More...]

New pope failed to expunge child rapists.

Quick hit post #2: with 70% of Catholics saying that dealing with the child abuse scandal is the most important thing on the new pope’s plate, stories are beginning to surface that Bergoglio didn’t exactly meet the minimum standard before becoming pope. Father Julio Cesar Grassi was a celebrity in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires. [Read More...]

There will never be more irony than this.

You know how “absolute zero” is the temperature at which it can’t get any colder?  This is absolute irony. I give you Pat Robertson warning people against religious scams. [Read more...]

For all you heathens watching the NCAA tournament, here’s where you can hang out and talk amongst yourselves. I’ll be in tonight after Michaelyn and I return to Lawrence.  [Read more...]

New director of faith-based and neighborhood partnerships <3s separation of church and state.

I’m still in the middle of Kansas visiting Michaelyn’s family.  Right now I’ve managed to sneak away from the six year-olds (who are too big to fit into an oven) to catch up on a bit of the news and what not.  So posts today are going to be of the quick hit variety.  I’ll [Read More...]
