Why does an atheist celebrate Christmas?

My life…  I get asked this all the time!  Maybe I just need to accept that the answer to everybody else isn’t as obvious as it appears to me.  Or maybe I need to accept that people are just regurgitating what they hear in church.  I just don’t understand how people don’t get to, “Hrm…he’s [Read More...]

Friendsmas Eve links!

Father on “attacking Christians”.

Dad is spreading holiday cheer by jousting with right wingers in the comment section of our local paper.  This one, I thought, was particularly good: FREDDY BOEN says, “Just because one chooses to be an atheist does not give him the right to attack Christians, for this nation was founded on the principle that man [Read More...]

Uganda passes massive anti-gay bill.

Uganda passed a massive anti-gay bill last week.  Christians in America responded by caring more about one bearded bigot’s “freedom of speech” than about the right of gay people to not spend their entire lives in a fucking cage for loving a consenting adult. Uganda’s parliament has just voted (Friday) on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill (also [Read More...]

Open letter to the defenders of Phil Robertson.

Phil Robertson defenders, which include your standard list of deeply Republican people who purport to stand for decency even while insisting gays and atheists are a threat to the well-being of the world (Huckabee, Jindal, Palin, etc.), piss me off to no end.  It’s not that I give a good god damn about the opinions [Read More...]

Judge strikes down Utah’s anti gay marriage law. Mormons become sad pandas.

Booyah! A federal judge struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban Friday in a decision that brings a nationwide shift toward allowing gay marriage to a conservative state where the Mormon church has long been against it. The Salt Lake County clerk’s office started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Deputy Clerk Dahnelle Burton-Lee said the [Read More...]

American Atheists challenges NY state senator Andrew Lanza to boycott his own district.

Recall the nasty things Lanza said about atheists and the boycott he called for in Times Square on account of a very mild billboard put up by American Atheists?  Initially, AA fired back pretty hard: “In two weeks, a million people are going to descend on Times Square for the 110th anniversary of the ball [Read More...]

Father on Duck Dynasty’s ex-star Phil Robertson’s “freedom of speech.”

So you may have heard that the star of a reality show based around what a down home yokul he is said some very hateful things about gay people.  As a result, he was fired from the show.  Well this has the South up in a tizzy about how persecuted this poor Christian man is.  [Read More...]
