Ed Hensley doing great work digging into Ark Encounters theme park.

Dan Arel, who has been eviscerating Ken Ham on the regular, will be happy to see this (indeed, he was).  Ed Hensley sent myself and some others the results of an FOIA request regarding the Ark Encounters theme park being build by Answers in Genesis.  It turns out the state of Kentucky is giving millions [Read More...]

A proposed response to ultra-Orthodox Jews who refused to sit next to women on a plane.

An El Al flight from New York to Tel Aviv was recently delayed because a group of ultra-Orthodox Jews, who had been previously assigned seats, refused to sit in those seats because *gasp* it would mean sitting by women. According to the passengers who were on the plane, their fellow ultra-Orthodox travelers refused to sit [Read More...]

Ex-gay, ex-gay porn star, fundamentalist Christian explains why “Satan loves anal sex.”

Meet Joseph ciambra.  That link will take you to his website: How Our Lord Jesus Christ Saved Me From Homosexuality, Pornography, and the Occult.  I’d link to some of his previous work, but it might be too interesting and detract from this entry.  You see, Sciambra used to be a gay porn star before he eschewed [Read More...]

Catch me on Atheist Analysis tonight alongside the Game Theory Podcast.

I got asked at the last second to join the hosts of the Game Theory Podcast on Atheist Analysis tonight.  I’ve come down sick with the crud Michaelyn had last week, so I may just grunt my approval of everything David and Jeremiah say.  I’ve also asked the hosts if Michaelyn can sit in for [Read More...]

Christianity: prompting people to argue for the morality of watching a baby die.

If Christians and atheists can converge on any point, one would think it would be that ignoring a baby while it drowns is immoral.  No such luck, as I found out in a post from yesterday.  If a human watches a baby die with indifference, they’re immoral.  When god does?  He must really, really love [Read More...]

Student prayer bill coming to Alabama.

Ah, Alabama, my old nemesis.  We meet again. A pair of Alabama lawmakers plan to sponsor legislation guaranteeing public school students – and their teachers – the right to pray in school. The sponsors, state Rep. Steve McMillan, R-Gulf Shores, and Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, contend the bill would clarify a right Americans already have. [Read More...]

Jon Stewart to FOX News: F*** you and your false patriotism.

When I came on to Patheos I promised to not use curse words in the titles of posts, lest some religious readers see them in their feeds and inadvertently be exposed to sin or something.  So sorry about that. Anyway, FOX News has a history of harping on the President given any opportunity, and apparently [Read More...]

Foundation for Moral Law thinks Ginsburg and Kagan should recuse themselves from gay marriage rulings.

“Nobody recruited me [to ISIS], I read the Koran.”

Despite the fact that ISIS literally stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham and that its leaders are frequently justifying their actions with recourse to Islam and its holy books, I’ve bumped into several atheists who don’t think religion plays into ISIS’s misdeeds. So I thought I’d share this video I came across yesterday [Read More...]

Another politician forgets that microphones actually record what you say.

Earlier this month Robert Pittenger (R-NC) was asked at a town hall meeting if he thought businesses should be able to fire employees for being gay.  Think Progress then published an article in which they reported that Pittenger did think businesses should be able to discriminate in this way: At a town hall event in Ballantyne, [Read More...]
