Saw the President speak.

Sorry I’ve been out all morning.  It turns out that if you want to hear the President speak you need to wait three hours and then a few more to get out of the building.  I never knew that standing could be so exhausting. I still have to write two articles for American Atheists today, [Read More…]

ISIS now targeting educated women for execution.

Targeting women and the educated, two demographics routinely despised by the fundamentalists of several religions, all in one fell swoop: The group, which controls large swathes of territory in Iraq and in neighbouring war-ravaged Syria, last week published pictures of the “crucifixions” of two men accused of being bandits, and of a woman being stoned [Read More…]

Overall the SOTU Address was solid and factual. Great, but not perfect.

Ok, here’s my take on last night’s State of the Union Address. “Our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999.” This is most certainly true.  While Obama has his flaws, his policies have dug us out of the recession the Republicans created – all while being constantly opposed on principle [Read More…]

Christian Post: Was It Necessary for Jesus to Die?

This post popped up in my web-o-tron interface. I saw the header, and peeped “ooh!” This topic is one of my pet peeves about Christianity. Let’s see what the author has to say, that’ll clarify the matter. [Read more…]

State of the Union Address open thread.

I’m actually taking Michaelyn out for dinner and a movie tonight since we’ve not been together for almost a week.  However, Patheos has asked me to do a breakdown of the SOTU Address for tomorrow, which I plan to do, even though I will miss the address live.  But for those of you watching, feel [Read More…]

As many expected, the SCOTUS will hear at least some of the marriage equality cases before it during its present term: The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to decide whether all 50 states must allow gay and lesbian couples to marry, positioning it to resolve one of the great civil rights questions in a generation before its current term [Read More…]

What eating marijuana was like.

So, this last weekend I ate marijuana since I had the opportunity to do it legally.  One can only wonder why when I could easily have woken up the following morning with no memory of having gone on a mass killing spree: Even Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper predicted disaster when Colorado decided to legalize recreational [Read More…]

British Prime Minister David Cameron rebuts the Pope, defends free speech.

I’m not Cameron’s biggest fan (how could I be?  The guy opposes adoption rights for gay couples).  But this was a pretty swell thing for him to say (in response to the Pope’s claims that there are limits to speech before one can expect a violent response): “I think in a free society, there is [Read More…]

Jon Stewart is honest and firm with Mike Huckabee.

Last night Jon Stewart was refreshingly candid with Mike Huckabee.  At the beginning of the interview he flat out tells Huckabee that him running for President is a mistake.  He also doesn’t let Huckabee dance around his sneering at the educated.

Father rips into Steve Deace on gay rights.

My hometown paper just printed an article by Steve Deace.  I’ll give you the first bit of it so you can get a sense for the whole thing: This spring, when the Supreme Court hears arguments on the gay marriage cases the justices accepted Friday, it is going to be hearing much more than a [Read More…]
