David Barton: knowledge requires fear of the lord.

Nobody would listen to this idiot if he didn’t share their religion. Yes, how could science be done without fear of the lord?  I mean, fear of the Catholic Church delayed scientific innovation for centuries.  If only those scientists had feared the lord instead… [Read more...]

Klingenshmitt: ENDA will force Christians into bankruptcy.

Gordon Klingenschmitt is saying that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act in New Mexico will force Christians into bankruptcy. After urging Christian photographers to add the line “worthy of death” to photos they take of same-sex weddings, Dr. “Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt emailed members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project today warning that Christians may face unemployment [Read More...]

To Sandy Rios the Syria offensive is a handy excuse to complain about gays.

Sandy Rios thinks we’re doomed in Syria because we repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.  She can’t really complain that it hurt our military recruiting, because it didn’t (though it’s Sandy Rios, so I doubt she’d be too dissuaded by that fact).  Instead, she just complains that gay people suck at being soldiers.  Oh, and women [Read More...]

Vatican envoy to the Dominican Republic removed under suspicion of A) Being too moral B) Child molestation?

The jokes write themselves. The authorities in the Dominican Republic said they would look into rumors of child sexual abuse involving the papal envoy there after he was abruptly removed from his post by the Vatican. The nation’s attorney general, Francisco Domínguez Brito, said Wednesday that his office had not received any accusations about the [Read More...]

God doesn’t use his powers like he loves us.

Ugh…I’m sick.  And Michaelyn is getting sick too.  So today I’m going to write my zombie article and do some quick hits out of the news and then go back to sleep. In the meantime, here’s this: [Read more...]

“Under God” Under Fire

Oral arguments from yesterday’s hearing in the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court have been posted on the the Suffolk University Law School website. The Appignani Humanist Legal Center is representing anonymous parents and students in Massachusetts public schools in an attempt to stop the pledge from being recited daily. I have not read the briefs in [Read More...]

GAMING: Huge comeback, hard carrying out of the jungle as Amumu.

It’s not uncommon to have a game as a jungler where everything goes wrong: your team somehow manages to lose a 2v1 lane, your mid laner’s internet stops working, and your 1v2 lane gets shit on like you’d expect.  In those games you just do what you can, realizing you can’t be everywhere at the [Read More...]

My take on Pope Francis’ first encyclical letter.

The other day Sara Lin Wilde posted a rundown of Pope Francis’ first encyclical letter.  It’s not too flattering to unbelievers so I thought I’d take a stab at its premises. Atheism weakens community ties. For some reason, Francis seems to believe that religious faith is required to “build our societies in such a way [Read More...]

Mike Deangelo sees Hobby Lobby’s dishonest quote-mining and raises us…the same dishonest quote.

Earlier I posted about the FFRF’s glorious smackdown of Hobby Lobby’s dishonesty regarding the founding fathers.  It wasn’t long before a believer by the name of Mike Deangelo found his way into the comments and, rather than condemning or defending Hobby Lobby’s dishonest quote mining, started throwing out more quotes.  This was apparently done in [Read More...]

Girl scouts drop “to love my god” from their official promise.

The girl scouts have dropped the obligation “to love my God” from their official promise. A lifelong girl scout who can finally recite the promise with a clear conscience shares her elation at the change and talks of what it means to people like her: What the new wording of our Promise does is help [Read More...]

Theist kills atheist over argument about god’s existence.

A couple dudes got into an argument the other day over whether or not god exists.  The Christian closed his case by shooting the nonbeliever. Yim killed 25-year-old Dzuy Duhn Phan after a night of partying and playing video games. Another friend, Paul Park, testified the two men had engaged in a heated discussion about [Read More...]

Tim Tebow is out of a job because he can’t throw, not because he’s a Christian.

On Saturday the New England Patriots cut Tim Tebow, probably because in a pass-heavy offense you want a quarterback who can throw the ball and, well, Tebow can’t do that.  But many Christians are unconvinced – surely Tebow was cut for publicly being a part of the most popular religion in the United States, one [Read More...]

FFRF catches Hobby Lobby lying for Jesus and doesn’t let them get away with it.

First, some back story: The Christian trinket-purveyor Hobby Lobby places religious holiday ads in national newspapers reaching in some cases more than 47 million readers. Hobby Lobby’s July 4, 2013 ad features quotes from the founders scattered around huge font screaming, “In God We Trust.” The quotes are meant to give the false impression that the [Read More...]

Liz Cheney doesn’t have enough empathy for family

Steven here… Often when a conservative politician has a family member come out as gay, they tend to soften their rhetoric or do a 180 on their civil rights position. While I don’t think this should be a necessary condition for persuading them to treat others well, it’s often sufficient motivation. That said, Liz Cheney [Read More...]
