Christians accuse god of caring less about others.

The initial title for this piece was “Christians say god saves them from gunman”, but I changed it for purposes of accuracy.  A guy went to rob a McDonalds and his gun malfunctioned.  And because guns never malfunction (which makes a person wonder why our soldiers, who are presumably in possession of high-quality firearms, receive [Read More...]

Who said low-hanging fruit can’t be delicious?

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire is a hoot.  Don’t remember him?  He’s the guy who is sick of “being sodomized by the left”.  He’s got a new video out in which he talks about the Westboro Baptist Church asking who we are to judge them.  After all, god might really have told them to do the horrible [Read More...]

No jail time for pastor who raped young boys to cure them of homosexuality.

Earlier this month I wrote about Brent Girouex.  Girouex is a pastor who would rape boys in his congregation, as he tells it, to purge them of sexual impurity.  This sounds like binge eating to lose weight to me… Turns out he won’t be serving a day of jail time unless he breaks probation: Girouex [Read More...]

House Republican compares fighting to de-fund ACA to fighting terrorists.

You guys know me.  When someone says something dumb I generally say “Hey, that was dumb” and proceed to explain why I think it was dumb.  But sometimes a person says something so dumb that no additional explanation is necessary. Sometimes those people are our leaders. Rep. John Culberson of Texas essentially compared the fight [Read More...]

CFI launches new “Living Happily Without Religion” campaign.

This is pretty nifty.  I’m all for advertising the happiness that comes with godlessness.  We can have sex the way we want.  We don’t have to live with the constant reminder that we’re not good enough or spoiled by birth.  There are no taboo curiosities for us, and no avenue to happiness that is forbidden. [Read More...]

The GOP looking an awful lot like terrorists.

Ok, so the GOP is willing to shut down our whole government if the Affordable Care Act goes into effect.  But their talking point on it is so absurd as to be offensive: Even Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), despite his previous criticism of attempts to defund Obamacare through a continuing resolution to fund the government, [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: it’s dangerous to go alone. Take this!

Creationists suing the state of Kansas over science standards.

In debates, such as my debate with Peter Payne, I’m often assured that Christianity and science are 100% compatible.  Of course, I’m never told how people rising from the dead jibes with biology or how someone walking on water jibes with physics, but I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation (the laws of nature totally stopped [Read More...]

Sanctity of life or personal dignity at 17?

I’ve been following the story of the 17 year-old Jehovah’s Witness boy who wishes, on account of the faith with which he was indoctrinated, to refuse a life-saving blood transfusion.  The courts initially ruled that doctors should be allowed to treat the boy. He told his doctors he would rip the IV out of his [Read More...]

Thoughts on the firing of Teresa MacBain.

You’ve probably heard about Teresa MacBain being fired from the Humanist Community Project at Harvard.  The reason for this was because she lied.  On her résumé she repeated a lie that had been circulating since she entered into the atheist movement: that she had a Master’s of Divinity from Duke Divinity School.  It came to [Read More...]
