Sometimes that’s what winds up happening (see Josh Duggar), but that’s a glitch, not the program. This notion that Christians are above our nation is [Read More...]
God dammit, Hemant finds all the good stuff so fast. I try not to reblog too much of what Hemant writes about because he usually says everything I wanted to say only better. However, this post was just too amusing to let Hemant have all the fun. So Mücahid Cihad Han is an Islamic televangelist in [Read More...]
It’s always an adventure when random Christians visit my facebook page: One can only wonder why, if nothing is wrong for atheists, we’re showing such revulsion for a child molester, as well as for the people defending him. That’s really the thesis of his argument: you atheists think everything is permissible, so you don’t [Read More...]

If you think the leader of the Boy Scouts of America wants to lift the anti-gay ban to stop discrimination, you’re wrong.

Gates saying he wanted to lift the ban on gay scout leaders in the BSA, but I’m not sure they’ve read exactly what he said: Speaking at the Boy Scouts’ annual national meeting in Atlanta, Mr. Gates said cascading events — including potential employment [Read More...]
In Lake Hypatia, Alabama the FFRF has erected a monument to the freethinking soldiers. You know, the ones who are reviled and whose existence is questioned by the people who scream “respect the troops” the loudest. Here’s to you atheist soldiers: Tim, Jeremiah, Sarah, and many others. We love you, just as you are – [Read More...]
Good morning everybody. I’m back in the land of the living and hope you’re having an enjoyable memorial day. :) Here’s an orangutan playing with tigers: [Read more...]

It turns out that Josh Duggar, oldest son of the Duggar family (the one famous for reproducing faster than a pair of Mormon rabbits and for opposing gay rights) molested some minors several years ago.

Despite what Disney might lead you to believe, wild turkeys are a very skittish species. It’s actually very hard to get close to one. However, the ones around my parents house have become accustomed to them. One turkey in particular likes to attack its reflection in Michaelyn’s car whenever we visit.

Do as I say, not as I do: don’t treat everybody who wants to waste your time like they’re entitled to do so.
I used to think that being a good blogger meant giving my time to anybody and everybody who invited me to waste it. No matter how loopy they appeared, I would do my damndest to treat them like they were acting in good faith. But the more I wrote the more I realized that there [Read More...]
