Trump says debate should not have a moderator to keep it from being “rigged and unfair.”

In an interview on CNBC today, Donald Trump says the forthcoming debate should have no moderator to ensure fairness to him. Yes, he said without the sole job that exists to ensure fairness, the debate would be rigged and unfair: This reminds me of a clip from Seth Meyers recently, where he talks about how Trump’s [Read More…]

Phil Robertson rails against secular humanism at Value Voters Summit.

First, the very notion of a “value voters summit” is plain stupid. All voters have values, and acting like they don’t if they’re not in your camp is about the dumbest thing since the last time Donald Trump opened his mouth. What’s more, I’m happy to debate whose values are better (mine). Anyway, Phil Robertson [Read More…]

Hillary Clinton: “Next President should be a praying person.”

I will still happily pull the lever for Clinton, but god dammit this grinds my gears: Hillary Clinton quoted biblical scripture. She talked about her youth minister who took her from the safe harbor of suburbia to the inner city of Chicago, and she shared the memory of seeing her gruff father bent on his [Read More…]

Republicans holding Zika funding hostage unless we de-fund Planned Parenthood.

So the Zika virus is promulgating within the United States now. You may be asking yourself why Congress hasn’t done anything. The answer is because Republicans won’t help stop it unless we give them political concessions: Congressional funding for combating the Zika virus is being held hostage to anti-women politics. The Zika virus can cause [Read More…]

Arkansas atheist group seeks to erect literal wall of separation on capitol grounds.

Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert is pushing for a ten commandments monument on the AR capitol grounds. This, he says, is about history, and not religion. Ironically, the ten commandments itself says lying is a no-no, but that doesn’t stop Rapert. The Satanic Temple is already applying to put a Baphomet statue up next to [Read More…]

Church membership plummets in Denmark after ads by the Denmark Atheist Society.

Denmark isn’t as atheistic as you might think, with about 79% of its citizens claiming Christianity. Not only that, the Denmark Constitution helps religion out tremendously by establishing the Lutheran Church as the state church, requiring the monarch to be a member of that church, requiring people to financially support their chosen church via taxation, [Read More…]

The rest of what’s going on in the world: Trump, Trump, and “Dr.” David Barton.

Before I ship off to teach the youngsters, here’s a look at what’s going on in the world. Michele Bachmann says Trump’s immigration policies (which don’t exist) will “turn America back to god.” This will presumably be accomplished by deporting people who are near homogeneously Catholic. Trump calls Phyllis Schlafly, the woman who fought the [Read More…]
