Your morning happiness: Titanium.

You may notice that today’s “morning” happiness is coming on the cusp of noon.  Suffice that much fun was had yesterday and last night.  I regret nothing.  But I wouldn’t expect much elaboration from me today. But I got a lot accomplished, including writing my wedding vow.  Immediately I wanted to run to the blog [Read More…]

Oklahoma politician says cities should be able to decide whether or not to kill gay people.

Last post for the day, gang.  Michaelyn heading back home has put me in a crappy mood that only video games can solve. Scott Esk is running for Congress in Oklahoma and believes that cities should be able to decide on an individual basis if they want to stone people to death for being gay. [Read More…]

In Maldives Islamic group abducts atheist activists and forces them to convert under threat of death.

The first amendment…you are a beautiful thing.  Otherwise shit like this can happen: Maldives: Muslims kidnap atheists, force them to accept Islam.  They also forced them to turn over their passwords to their online group calling for tolerance, and filled the page with warnings about their “blasphemy.” The  Qur’an says that “there is no compulsion [Read More…]

Part of the SS soldier’s oath in Nazi Germany was to say “atheists are not one of us.”

A friend alerted me to an excerpt from a book written by Heinrich Himmler in 1937 that described the oath SS soldiers were made to take in Nazi Germany.  Heinrich Himmler, of course, was notorious as the SS’s Reichsführer, which was the SS’s highest rank.  The book was Heinrich Himmler: Die Schutzstaffel (SS) als antibolschewistische Kampforganisation, [Read More…]

Prayer doesn’t work, at least for sick babies.

It seems to be kind of a slow news day, so I might post some more funny stuff.  I’m ok with this, honestly.  Michaelyn just left for ten days to do her bachelorette party and visit her mom to do more wedding prep, so I’m a sad panda and might just take it easy today. [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: wedding chalices!

Michaelyn has been a wedding-planning tornado (but not the bridezilla kind).  She ordered us wine glasses for the wedding that, instead of “husband” and “wife,” say “Timelord” and “Companion.” We rule. [Read more…]

Someone named a koi fish after me. *blush*

Part of being a public figure is getting facebook friend requests.  I just accept them all and, if people are ass hats, I unfriend them later (if you want to be my friend, here I am).  Michaelyn just gripes at me because she gets friend requests from people she doesn’t know.  I tell her I’m [Read More…]

The Thinking Atheist shall bow before his WWJTD overlord.

New Jersey gay conversion practitioners may be liable for damaging their patients.

Kudos to Zack Ford for staying on top of this situation. There is a group called JONAH which claims it can turn gay men straight.  I’ve met other people in my time who made this claim, but they were women saying they could turn gay men straight via boobs, and I don’t think they were [Read More…]

New bible course in Oklahoma public school presents Adam and Eve as historical characters.

Who said that religion, specifically Christianity, has a tendency to make people more ignorant than they otherwise would be and keep them ignorant?  Oh, right, it was me, because it does.  The President of Hobby Lobby decided to design an elective course that high schools could theoretically pick up (theoretically, until they were sued back [Read More…]

Archbishop didn’t know it was a crime to rape children.

Sometimes I read something so egregious that no comment needs to really be made.  This is one of those times.  If you want some irony, I mean if you are the type of irony junkie who’s looking for the closest syringe so you can overdose on pure, uncut irony, here it is: Archbishop Robert J.

Florida lawmaker: If humans cause climate change, why did the dinosaurs go extinct?

Jeff Miller (R-FL) is just looking out for America/the earth when he says that climate change isn’t settled science yet. MSNBC host Richard Lui asked Rep.
