Spending the day adding stuff to my talk.

Content’s gonna be light today guys.  I’m sitting here putting some tweaks into my Darwin Day talk for tonight at Northwestern.  You’ll just have to make comments on the present state of the Catholic Church without me for a bit. See you later today or tomorrow morning.  [Read more...]

The next pope.

I’ve found the perfect candidate. He’s got a whole freezer full of popsicles. (Thanks to Shayne for sending this to me) [Read more...]

Boggle on mental illness and “a cry for help”.

Here’s your feel good post for the day: it’s Boggle, the owl.  People write to boggle with problems and boggle then gives them some kind perspective. This particular one caught my eye… Beautiful. [Read more...]

Love yourself, hate the sinner.

I saw over on the Friendly Atheist that a group of students and parents are holding a makeshift prom at a local church because gays are allowed to go to the one at school. “We want to make the public see that we love the homosexuals, but we don’t think it’s right nor should it [Read More...]

Commenter John on handfuls of unthinking, unfeeling cells.

On my post about Iowa lawmakers trying to make abortion the same as murder, someone named John had the following…thought. I don’t know why I continue to be gobsmacked by those of you who violently refuse to connect the dots between “a handful of unthinking, unfeeling cells” and a human being. But I do, indeed, [Read More...]

Once again, Catholics were incompetent at just the right time.

Remember when that Catholic hospital argued in court that fetuses weren’t people (because they’re only moral absolutes until they’re inconvenient)?  I read on Ed Brayton’s blog this morning that now, after they’ve already won the case, the heads of that hospital are very sorry.  They didn’t know their lawyers were using such an immoral argument! [Read More...]

The Pope is resigning. Good.

The Pope is resigning.  Good riddance.  He is a positively evil man who has long been more concerned with the Church’s image than with protecting its youngest members from abuse by their spiritual leaders.  He has even more fiercely aligned the Catholic Church with hatred of those who love someone of which the Catholic Church [Read More...]

The Los Angeles diocese found some new funds.

Man, things just keep getting worse for the Los Angeles diocese – which is strange if god really has their back.  Unable to tap into the Pope’s sacred piggy bank, they keep needing to find money to pay the $660 million settlement with the families of the children their priests raped.  The fundraiser was a [Read More...]

NTSC: Fundraising.

August Brunsman is speaking about fundraising right now.  Here’s the talk, given elsewhere.  If you do fundraising for a cause, I really do recommend it.  August is one of the best in the biz at fundraising. When I was with the SSA, I struggled at fundraising for a long time.  I kept getting pointers from [Read More...]

NTSC: Jerry DeWitt.

Someone needs to tell Jerry DeWitt that we became atheists so we wouldn’t have to wake up early on Sundays.  The party last night was great.  There was entirely too much drinking and even more fun.  It ran til about 4:30am for me though, and I got up at 6:45am to shower.  I rule. But [Read More...]

NTSC: Sam Singleton.

I will never miss a Sam Singleton presentation when I’m at a convention, or whenever he comes close to where I’m at.  He’s a good person, a spectacular and inventive writer, and he knows how to work a room.  Seriously, catch him if you can. Sam has a cross on stage.  He came out and [Read More...]

NTSC: Dogma Debate live podcast.

They’re about to go live.  Google the Dogma Debate podcast to find them and listen.  I’m going to be on at some point griping about country music.  :) You all know I like to give credit to the faces of atheism who, off the stage, are actually really good people.  The cast of Dogma Debate [Read More...]
