City of Pitman, NJ and Clear Channel Outdoor discriminating against atheists.

A town in New Jersey is discriminating against its atheistic residents and a billboard company is barring a secular organization from putting up billboards within a half mile of any church. Earlier today I told you a happy holiday story.  Get ready for a sad one. Two years ago in the small town of Pitman, [Read More…]

Jim Wright on torture.

One of my favorite writers is Jim Wright at Stonekettle Station.  Today he put out a blistering piece on the United States and our practice of torture.  The whole thing should be read, but here are a couple of highlights to entice you to follow the link and take in the entire piece: If the [Read More…]

Michele Bachmann’s final speech in Congress (yay!) credits Moses for all our fortune (boo!).

In Michele Bachmann’s final speech in the House, she elected to thank Moses for America’s success.  The parts in red are my thoughts while reading her speech: “And as I look about this chamber, we are ringed with the silhouettes of lawgivers throughout history,” Bachmann continued, referencing the 23 marble relief portraits in the House [Read More…]

Bill Donohue needs our help.

Fox News is fair and balanced, we all know that.  Which is why their coverage of the American Atheists billboard campaign has perplexed me. Fox has run segments about our Christmas billboards at least three times now. Fox and Friends brought on Pastor Robert Jeffress, Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor” brought on a clinical psychologist, [Read More…]

A Christmas tale of Dan the writer, tax incentives, and a dishonest Holiday Ham.

Sit back children and let me tell you a Christmas story for the ages. Once upon a time there was a man named Ken Ham who ran a ministry called Answers in Genesis – a name that shared a quirky nature with other phrases like “the man in the moon” (neither the answers or the [Read More…]

Another pastor says “dirty faggots” need to be put to death. The bible says so.

“They’re an abomination to god.  I love that part of the bible.”  And the congregation amens and laughs at the thought of murder.  They are what makes this man frightening. His name is Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas. Christians like him will assert that LGBT people are more depressed, implying it’s because [Read More…]

Fox News reaction to torture report is predictable and depressing.

The response by Fox News to the revelation (which most people already knew about) that the United States engaged in torture despite every principle we purport to stand for has been predictable.  But nowhere was it more apparent than with Andrea Tantaros. She thinks publicizing these findings is a political stunt.  Ironically, this is probably a [Read More…]

Gaming post: god mode engaged.

I’ve gotten away from posting about gaming, but I made a play on stream the other night I was really proud of. I was playing Heroes of the Storm with Jeremiah from the Game Theory Podcast.  The first kill is a duel with a Janna where I burn my ultimate ability and am dropped to [Read More…]

Several other countries helped the United States with its torture program.

Today is just one of those days where I’m having a hard time finding motivation to write.  So you’re getting quick posts that are just the plain facts. Perhaps one of the reasons we worried about international backlash from the senate’s report revealing the torture practices of the United States is because it implicated about [Read More…]

Hinduism: Strawberries, therefore God

I feel like I’m done with evidence, though, that’s only tongue-in-cheek. I was poking around for Hindu arguments for a god. That’s more difficult since Hinduism doesn’t seem to conform to a standard monotheistic model. One stated that Hinduism is broad enough to include atheists… so I’m not likely to find atheist Hindus arguing for [Read More…]

New GOP Congressman actually believes in science

US Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) was the last holdout for the Democratic Party to have at least one Senator from the Deep South. She is highly regarded in the Democratic Party as a moderate and bridge-builder, and it will be sad to see her go (except if you oppose the Keystone XL Pipeline, in which case, [Read More…]
