KY church hires sex offender because “Jesus forgave him.” Shocked when he rapes 14 year-old boy in congregation.

So…a church in Kentucky received an application for a pastor, Roy Neal Yoakem, knowing full well that he was a registered sex offender for violently raping an eight year-old boy in 2005.  If they hired him, it would put him in a position of trust around lots of children.  This apparently seemed like a swell [Read More…]

Poll: lots of Americans love Jesus, but consciously think Jesus would disagree with them politically.

Well this is interesting, though not surprising: For many Americans the answer to WWJTD is “The opposite of what I’d do, but he was still pretty rad.” This is what kills me about religion: most people know better about morality than their holy books, but still treat their holy books as the sources of superhuman [Read More…]

Republican congressional candidate and state legislator Adam Kwasman was in the process of protesting migrant children being given shelter in the United States when he thought he had the chance to exploit a bus of such children.  He tweeted and told reporters that he saw the fear in the children’s faces, implying this bus proves [Read More…]

Blogging mental illness: back into therapy.

So…the last week has been rough for me.  My ordinarily firm grip on my mental state has slipped considerably.  I haven’t hallucinated, but leaving the house has been hard and it seems like everything triggers a depressive episode regardless of how fanatical I get about controlling my environment. During this time I’ve done all the [Read More…]

Matt Barber twitter two-fer part 2: Scientists prove atheists don’t exist.

Talking snakes?  Guy walking on water?  Guy rising from the dead?  All sounds legit. People who aren’t convinced of those things?  Scientifically impossible. *touches self*  I feel like I exist… Even if this were true (we’ll get to that in a minute), somebody should remind Matt that science also says the earth is way more [Read More…]

Matt Barber twitter two-fer part 1: Public School Pornogogues.

Oh man, my special twitter list is paying some pretty hefty blog dividends.  Got two from Matt “they’re outlawing Christianity” Barber.

GOP candidate in Minnesota believes humans and dinosaurs live together…like right now.

Bob Frey is a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in Minnesota.  He wants a position of responsibility in an era dominated by science, which suggests that our leaders should have some knowledge and/or appreciation for science. So how does Bob measure up?  Well, he’s actually testified before the states’ Senate Education Committee, where [Read More…]

Pope: “1 in 50 priests/bishops/cardinals is a pedophile.”

So Pope Fluffy has put a number on the number of pedophiles in the high ranks of the Catholic Church: it’s about 1 in 50 according to ol’ Frankie.  And, given the Catholic Church’s past practice of PR above all else (which has been kicked into overdrive with the new pope), I’m sure there’s no [Read More…]

Author of “Freedom From Homosexuality” arrested for A) Winning at life? B) Molesting a teenage boy?

A Pittsburgh pastor has been accused of sexuality assaulting a teeneger. Duane Youngblood with the [Read More…]

Forest for the Trees, JT. Forest for the trees.

I’ve been painstakingly preprocessing Larry’s 11-page post about evolution. Back a couple months, JT addressed a video by Joshua Feuerstein. Larry’s post was responding to JT’s response. This isn’t one of my official posts… but I wanted to hop in and comment. Joshua pulled out the previously-refuted-a-quadrillion-times argument: evolution violates the second law of thermodynamics.
