Gamethon to fight cancer this Saturday (hosted by moi)!

This Saturday I’ll be hosting an all-day gamethon to benefit Foundation Beyond Belief’s support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I’ll be getting things underway at 9am EST and will spend the day either streaming myself or popping into another gamer’s stream.  We have some big names lined up which I’ll slowly leak over the [Read More...]

Hanging out around Kansas making sure my in-law stock is rising.

Hey all.  I’ve spent the last couple days driving around Kansas to spend the holidays with Michaelyn’s parents.  I’m such a good future son-in-law.  Seriously, fifty points for Ravenclaw courtesy of me.  Seriously though, I love Michaelyn’s family (a luxury not every person gets with their engagement), so I’m having a great deal of fun.

Follow up on Josiah Biblename and thank you

Steven here… The other day I put out the call for donations to help a fellow atheist who had lost his only means of livelihood. You came through. Above and beyond the call in fact. Between WWJTD readers and the rest of the secular community over $1,300 was raised in under 24 hours. Instead of [Read More...]

Boy, does this man need Jesus.

Everest Wilhelmsen is a TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT.  I’ll bet he loves apple pie and everything, and I’ll bet he hates our racial minority of a President as much as he hates the thought of background checks for firearm sales.  He’s a man who is on to the real truth about our commander-in-chief and he lets [Read More...]

Victims of papal child abuse appeal to the mercy of the Vatican.

Timothy Dolan, who was a candidate to become pope this last time around, is a big of…well…a terrible person.  For one, he shuffled child-raping priests off to new locations.  Anyway, some priests in his charge raped a bunch of kids back in the day and won a lawsuit against the diocese.  So Dolan moved $50 [Read More...]

NSA monitoring radical leaders’ use of porn.

Here’s something weird, but kind of unsurprising.  The NSA monitored various Muslim radicals use of online pornography because it would give the US potential blackmail material. The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations [Read More...]

School board member says transgender students should be castrated.

So, here’s the lowdown: Colorado school board member Katherine Svenson said that transgender students would have to be castrated before using school bathrooms that fit their gender identity, KREX-TVreports.

Your morning happiness: how to kick a baby’s ***.

Sorry about the title.  I agreed when I came on with Patheos to put no swear words in the titles of posts so that the easily offended may not be put off when they see the titles in their Patheos reader. Anyway, all atheists should know how to knock a baby into submission before consumption. [Read More...]

Pope warns against curiosity.

Vatican radio reports on one of the pope’s homilies from a few weeks ago.  In it, the pope has some real warnings about curiosity. In the Gospel, the Pope underlined, “we find ourselves before another spirit, contrary to the wisdom of God: the spirit of curiosity”. “And when we want to be the masters of [Read More...]

So the RDF has come up with a matching offer of $100,000 that runs through the end of the year.  If you wanted you donation to go twice as far, wrap it in a bow and send it off.  The donations go to RDF US, so we’ll feel the impact here in the States. The [Read More...]

Pope open to new ways of dispensing power…as long as the recipients are dudes.

In his first major exhortation, Pope Francis has said he’s open to suggestions about how to move power away from the Vatican.  One can only wonder, if he is truly god’s vicar on earth who can make infallible pronouncements (even when they conflict with previous infallible pronouncements) why he’d want to move power over to [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: creationist board of education in Texas defeated.

Ugh, my tummy hurts a lot today…so I need some morning happiness.  Kids across the United States, and even in Texas, are going to get sound science in their science textbooks: This week, the Texas State Board of Education held hearings to discuss the adoption of new textbooks for Texas schools.
