September 11, 12 years later.

On the decade anniversary of the 9/11 attacks I wrote the following piece, which I’ve reposted every year (since my feelings remain unchanged).  Here it is again.

No thanks, Dana Perino, atheists will stay right here in America and protect it from you.

Bachmann: this time, for sure, will be the one where god comes through.

In an interview with Jan Markell about the 2016 elections and the increasingly likelihood that Hillary Clinton will be elected president, Bachmann brought out the GOP’s secret weapon: god.

A child has her childhood ripped from her and dies as a result of forced marriage.

Warning: Do not read this article if you have a weak stomach or have great trouble reading about sexual injuries or rape.

Foundation Beyond Belief helping with humanitarian effort in Syria.

In a clear and sinister attempt to diminish the reputation of atheists everywhere for having no moral compass, a bunch of atheists at Foundation Beyond Belief are raising money to assist refugees in/from Syria in the midst of their civil war.

A story has broken on Atheist News that some board members of the Secular Party for America rigged the vote on their name change from the National Atheist Party.  Go read it.  It’s concise, so it won’t take you long. So where do I stand on all of this?  First, I want to praise Atheist [Read More…]

This week in “when bad people hold seats of authority” Rep.

Bryan Fischer: white Christians are the last group against which you can safely discriminate.

Bryan Fischer, of the American (anti) Family Association, on how white Christians are the victims of discrimination: Really?  When was the last time a Christian was barred from marrying the person they love (unless that Christian loves somebody of the same gender)?  What restaurants are white Christians forbidden from entering? Fischer didn’t give any examples [Read More…]

No, humans were not created to be Christian.

The Christians who email me unwittingly make me very, very cynical.  It’s lots of articles that are heavy on base assertions but exceedingly light on evidence usually accompanied by assurance that this argument, after thousands of years of crap arguments, is the one that rock solidly defends Christianity (ironically, these people were all Christians before [Read More…]

Six year-old ordered to marry her rapist’s son.

I thought that sitting here in my Teemo hat reading the news that nothing could bring me down (because this hat is god damned amazing).  Sadly, I was wrong.

Life is good.

Here I am…a couple years into my relationship.  It’s not that anything has gotten old, far from it.  But over enough time some things you do a lot become familiar.  They begin to mean more, but they are less exhilarating than they once were.  Holding hands, for instance, is far more comfortable than the first [Read More…]
