The Blaze doesn’t like the Freethought Books Project.

The Center for Inquiry has begun providing inmates at prisons with educational books about freethought, logic, etc.  It’s kind of like what religious people do with bibles, except instead of being told they must believe on shoddy evidence the CFI is trying to teach people to reject claims unsupported by evidence.  It’s a solid life [Read More…]

UN to grill the Vatican on shielding pedophile priests.

This is going to be pretty awkward. The Vatican is gearing up for a bruising showdown over the global priest sex abuse scandal, forced for the first time to defend itself at length and in public against allegations it enabled the rape of thousands of children by protecting pedophile priests and its own reputation at [Read More…]

A naked angel has visited my hometown.

My hometown is full of Jesus, as is obvious by the nativity scene controversy.  Apparently things have gotten so bad with the County being forced to obey the law and give equal representation to atheists that god has sent down an angel.  The angel appeared briefly the other night to an employee of the Baxter [Read More…]

Oklahoma citizens learn that the will of the majority doesn’t usurp inalienable rights.

Judge Terrence Kern just handed down a pretty tough cheese to swallow for the state of Oklahoma: their ban on marriage equality is unconstitutional.  And Kern didn’t do this with language that could be called coddling.  Speaking of the plaintiffs, Kern said: “The Bishop couple has been in a loving, committed relationships for many years,” [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: why you play through the buzzer.

I’m a pretty big Arkansas Razorbacks fan (cue Ed Brayton making a joke in the comments).  Last night my beloved hogs were playing Kentucky, a team with a roster bursting with McDonald’s All-Americans.  Arkansas was ahead by three with time winding down, but Kentucky dropped a three to send it to overtime. In overtime it [Read More…]

Another Catholic school fires a great teacher because he wants to get married.

Brian Panetta was, until recently, the music teacher at Sandusky Central Catholic School in Ohio.  In his five years there he “vastly expanded the entire music program, with the school’s band expanding from 18 to 50 members.”  The school just fired him because he’s in love with a man and not a woman, which apparently [Read More…]

Another letter about the Baxter County nativity scene: Diane McLane.

The letters keep pouring in from religious people who think if the government doesn’t give them exclusive rights to government property then they are somehow oppressed and forbidden from celebrating Christmas.  And Communism.  Communism everywhere.  If you need to get up to speed, click here to read about a County Judge in Baxter County giving [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: love and understanding in Kansas.

Yesterday I wrote about how some of my anorexic tendencies are resurfacing.  So it wasn’t a total waste of a post I also wrote about how I manage.  One of the things I do is avoid mirrors.  At my lowest points I still hallucinate with mirrors (though this hasn’t happened in some time, praise be [Read More…]

Be back tomorrow.

The last few days I’ve been having some issues with anorexia resurfacing.  It’s not terrible, and I’m far more equipped to handle it now than in the past.  But it’s a slow news day and my head just isn’t in writing today on account of it.  I’m gonna chill, watch Sherlock and Once Upon A [Read More…]

Western Center for “Journalism” puts out some epic level crazy.

I present this with no commentary.  It speaks for itself. Ironically, lots of the people who see this and nod their agreement voted for George W. Bush and supported him for the entirety of his time in office…even as the economy tanked.  But now that Obama is in charge and the economy is recovering their [Read More…]

Anti-abortion group going before SCOTUS to argue for their right to lie.

I normally don’t write much on weekends, but this is just too…good?  Well, it’s pretty lame, but you know what I mean. Back story: the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List put up dishonest billboards about an Ohio politician.  The billboards were blocked and the courts have upheld the decision. During the 2010 election cycle, [Read More…]

Matt Dillahunty obliterates Cliffe Knechtle.

I think Matt Dillahunty is the best debater atheism has.  But holy shit, did he ever put a particularly powerful beat down on Cliffe Knechtle. Knechtle did a great deal of preaching.  Dillahunty did a great deal of owning. I’ve been on stage with Dillahunty in a debate.  It was one of the greatest honors [Read More…]

Arkansas Tech needs to disavow comments by homophobic teacher.

A teacher at Arkansas Tech, Wayne Helmer, recently penned an editorial in Prism, the journal of the American Society for Engineering Education.  In the piece Helmer insists that diversity should not include the LGBT.  The kindest thing I can say about it is that it’s factually errant.  Click here to see the excerpt I got [Read More…]
