A Bible for Both Wings

It must be nice to be able to pick and choose what’s “meaningful” from a book. This came across the Christian Left Facebook page: Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause. – Isaiah 1:17 (ESV) That does seem very Left-wing compatible. Worry not, for there’s [Read More...]

James Dobson: marriage equality was a smoke screen to destroy Christianity, it’s like the Nazis.

James Dobson has written a long diatribe in Focus on the Family’s most recent newsletter insisting that same-sex marriage will result in the destruction of Christianity, ultimately comparing the effort to secure equal rights for LGBT people to, you guessed it, the Nazis. This Court decision is not about same-sex marriage, except only tangentially. Many [Read More...]

Man starves himself for 40 days to emulate Jesus, unsurprisingly dies.

I hate linking to World Net Daily articles, but this one about a guy starving himself to death to be like Jesus required additional commentary: A 73-year old Christian man trying to emulate Jesus by going without food for 40 days and 40 nights has reportedly died a month into his abstention from all nourishment.

MORNING HAPPINESS: Kitten massages.

Pro tip: if you’re sick, don’t go to work.  That’s what someone at Americorps did, now my wife is sick and is home today sharing it with me.  If you go to work sick, I get sick.  Simple logic.  Don’t do it. Here’s a kitten giving another kitten a back rub: Right there baby [Read more...]

Top 10 Reasons Jesus Hasn’t Returned

10.  Jesus stubbornly wanted to build all those promised mansions himself the old fashioned way and people had sex (despite his and Paul’s vain attempts to advocate celibacy) faster than he could finish them. 9.  Yahweh had to maintain the pretenses that no one would know the day he would return despite the endless nutcases [Read More...]

It turns out that Islamic apologist Reza Aslan has vastly exaggerated his credentials.

In an effort to paint himself as an expert on the influence of religion in the Middle East and, frankly, everywhere else, Reza “religion has nothing to do with it” Aslan hasn’t been exactly honest about his academic background: Among the Islamists and supporters of Sharia law, there is one individual in particular who has [Read More...]

Ben Carson, who is appalled at Planned Parenthood, used fetal tissue in his own research.

Dr. Jen Gunter has done some digging into Dr. Ben Carson’s research and turned up something interesting: While opining on the uselessness of fetal tissue research to Megyn Kelly Dr. Carson neglected to mention his own paper Colloid Cysts of the Third Ventricle: Immunohistochemical evidence for nonneuropithelial differentiation published in Hum Pathol 23:811-816 in 1992. The materials and methods describe using [Read More...]

Donald Trump’s favorite book is THE BIBLE!!!!

Ever said a bunch of stupid and offensive stuff but still need votes from people who claim to be morally superior?  There’s a single platitude that can fix you right up and get them to forget about all the demeaning things you’ve said: Lap it up, religious right.  There’s no way he’s being insincere and [Read More...]

Jeb Bush: Obama and Clinton to blame for the mess in Iraq.

Jeb Bush, in an ongoing effort to distance himself from his brother while at the same time defending him, recently claimed that Obama and Hillary Clinton are to blame for the mess in Iraq for not committing hard enough to his younger brother’s bone-headed decisions: Former Florida Gov.

Iowa issuing concealed-carry permits to blind people.

This seems like a bad idea: Iowa is granting permits to acquire or carry guns in public to people who are legally or completely blind. No one questions the legality of the permits. State law does not allow sheriffs to deny an Iowan the right to carry a weapon based on physical ability. The quandary [Read More...]
