IRS Investigation of Church Political Activity, Redux

Right out of the gate, my first post ever on WWJTD, and the next thing I know I’m seeing my chosen topic everyfreakingwhere on the Interwebz, and my information was … not as good as I thought it was. Shit. I’m embarrassed. This had better not be a harbinger of things to come, I mutter [Read More...]

God didn’t show up for Glenn Beck.

Here was Glenn Beck last Friday. Here he is today. “It cannot be called paranoid.”  Oh, I beg to differ.  That’s precisely what it is and what it always was. This is just the best though… I believe that people can watch and see the difference. They can feel the difference. When you watch Barack [Read More...]


Christina here… This video has been floating around Twitter all day, and I feel it is my duty to respond to it. The video is:  The Evil of Atheism: The Video Atheists DO NOT want you to see!

The future of the Republican Party.

Ok, so we re-elected the lesser of two evils.  I’m happy about that. I’m also happy that the Republicans took a pretty thorough thumping in the electoral college, the popular vote (where Romney lost by 3%, maybe more, even though that was supposed to be his saving grace), in the social issue ballots (gay marriage [Read More...]

Obama’s final campaign speech.

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Barack Obama can give a hell of a speech when he’s on his game.  You can tell the guy is beat from being all over the country and campaigning the last few months, and he still delivered one of his best. Actual speech starts around [Read More...]

Podcast? Podcast!

Steven here… The reason I’m a skeptic is not because of all the awesome blogs dedicated to reason. It’s because of podcasts. They are incredibly effective outreach tools. Because of that, me and the rest of the WWJTD team have been talking about what a WWJTD podcast would be like. Most of the contributors have [Read More...]

“I don’t vote.”

Steven here… I’ve seen a lot of people address undecided voters, and protest voters this year. But not a lot of time spent on those abstaining from the practice altogether. I can understand not voting if life gets in the way. I’ve missed votes because of work schedules, traveling and just not getting registered in [Read More...]
