NY State Senator Andrew Lanza is dying to be persecuted.

You’ve probably heard by now that a state senator out of New York, Andrew Lanza, has griped about the American Atheists Times Square billboard on his official page.  Let’s just hop right in: The controversial activist group unveiled its latest anti-Christmas ad this week in Times Square along with a press release declaring that “Christmas [Read More…]

MUSIC: Mario is a jerk and Mega Man rock opera.

Ok, my brother sent me this video.  Warning now: it would be very hard for this to be less safe for work.  It’s pretty crass, but it made me smile.  I always knew Mario was an asshole. And while we’re on the subject of video game music, here’s an excerpt from the Protomen’s dystopian rock [Read More…]

Study: people who believe astrology prone to poor decision-making.

I know this is going to come as a huge shock, but it turns out that people who believe in astrology tend to make bad decisions. Consumers who read their horoscope daily were found to be more likely to exhibit impulsive or indulgent behaviour when their zodiac was negative, the research suggested. This is because [Read More…]

Jon Stewart on Megyn Kelly’s excuses.

Remember when Megyn Kelly assured everybody that both Santa and Jesus were white?  Well she has now explained herself: the problem is that everybody else is humorless, not that she is racist.  It’s not that she is racist, but that everybody else is just out to get Fox News. Jon Stewart looks back on her [Read More…]

Pastor fights to maintain affiliation to a church whose commands he knows to be immoral.

Pastor Frank Schaefer defied the Methodist church last month when he said he would perform a gay wedding and then followed up on it, despite threats from the church to strip him of his credentials.  Well, the church has followed up as well, but Schaefer has refused to part with them willingly.  Good on him, [Read More…]

Thank god we’re right.

In response to the American Atheists billboard in Times Square, Answers in Genesis (a group aptly named if the question is “How do scientists not say the universe was created?”) put up one of their own.  Then Fox News uploaded it to their facebook. Who rejoices in that?  Who blesses the fates for a being [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: festive snake.

I saw on /r/aww that somebody made a sweater for their snake. 1.  Snakes don’t generate body heat, so the sweater wouldn’t ever work. 2.  They don’t have arms. 3.  The sweater still owns. Thursday Michaelyn and I depart for the backwoods of Mountain Home, Arkansas.  There won’t be any posts on Thursday, and for [Read More…]

Russian actor who ran for president wants to put gays in oven.

Just read this story and it made me boggle at what religion can do to a mind: A Russian actor best known for announcing a run for his country’s presidency two years ago has stated that he would like to put all gay people “in the oven”.

A gift to William Lane Craig: the obvious.

William Lane Craig has an opinion article fittingly posted at Fox News.  It’s titled “A Christmas gift for atheists — five reasons why God exists.”  I read it.  If it is a gift, it’s the kind that’s worth less than the time it would take to return it for a refund. Let’s just dive right [Read More…]

ESPN reverses decision, will air Christian ad.

In ESPN’s guidelines is a passage that reads: “ESPN does not accept advertising that consists of, in whole or in part, political or religious advocacy or issue-oriented advertising.” And written in invisible ink right afterward is the phrase “…unless Bill O’Reilly, Sarah Palin, and their ilk complain enough.”  ESPN initially rejected an ad for SSM [Read More…]

Fox News presents “It’s A Wonderful Life”.

Ok, I’m gonna level with you people.  Michaelyn’s finals are next week, which means there’s no school today.  Also a new champ just came out in League of Legends.  This puts me in a remarkably cheery mood (but still very grumpy, because that’s my M.O.).  I’m in the mood to post some happy stuff and [Read More…]
