Cheer up post: bro gaming.

I’ve been saving these two to post over at the Secular View, but today’s posting has been really depressing so I’m going to drop them off here to lighten the mood. First, bro team is one of my favorite (satirical) online game review channels.  Here’s their review of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.  (Beware, [Read More...]

Can’t let a gay couple stay at his bed and breakfast. His would-be mistress on the other hand…

Last year a British couple who own a bed and breakfast refused to rent a room to a gay couple.  The gay couple sued and Mike Wilkinson and his wife, the owners of the B&B, lost the case despite what they surely thought was a compelling reason for denying the gay couple: “For us, sex [Read More...]

Violence against gays in Russia as told through pictures.

There will be a link below.  Don’t click it if… 1.  You are at work or at a shared computer. 2.  You have a weak stomach.

Gay rights meme of the day.

My father upon reading my article about an elderly gay couple’s marriage getting recognized by the state of Ohio: It isn’t that the religious and the conservative are unable to envision the consequences of their legislative homophobia, it is that they do not have the empathy and the humanity to care. Yup.  I once thought [Read More...]

I saw this video the other day and it got me thinking: Could the US secure our border in the case of a zombie apocalypse if necessary?  I examine possible ways it could be done and give commentary on my newest article over at Shit Zombies Say.  Here’s an excerpt: Could we build a fence?  [Read More...]

Comprehensive sex education results in less teen pregnancy.

It’s the strangest thing: in California, as comprehensive sex education becomes the norm, teen pregnancy rates have declined. California’s teen birth rate has plummeted to the lowest level that it’s been in the past 20 years, according to new data from the state’s health department. The state’s rate now stands at 28 births for every [Read More...]

Atheists help poor families in Mississippi beat the heat.

Last year the Northeast Mississippi Secular Humanist Association raised money to purchase air conditioning units for less well-off families in Mississippi.  I’ve spoken in Mississippi and can vouch: in the summer it’s like a swamp on steroids there. Hemant reported on it: The money they raised (over $800) allowed them to buy seven air conditioner [Read More...]

Didn’t take long, did it?  It’s not paint or anything, some local, self-proclaimed hillbilly spit his terbacky all over the monument.  But don’t fret!  Through a logical appraising of the evidence, I feel confident we can ascertain this ruffian’s identity.  Detective JT on the job. So what clues do we have?  First, let’s examine American [Read More...]

Another day, another set of nightmares born of religion.

Sufficient adjective do not exist to communicate the horror of this: Arifa, a mother of two, has been stoned to death on the orders of Panchayat (a tribal court) for possessing a cell phone.
