Repeatedly, politicians are asked to justify their associations with certain groups and individuals. So, why has no reporter asked Jeb Bush why he lends credibility to the likes of Pat Robertson? In October, Jeb spoke at Regent University, and earlier this week, he sat down for an interview with Robertson for CBN News. If you’re interested, here’s the video: Despite his many asinine and ludicrous statements, Robertson remains quite influential in the evangelical community, and I have argued before that… Read more

It’s a new year, but some things never change. While some of us are already struggling to keep our new year resolutions to eat better and exercise more, others have found evidence that 2016 will be the year the world ends. No, I’m not talking about the consequences of The Donald winning the White House, I’m referring to the rise of the antichrist (okay, maybe that is Trump). Late last week, Reddit user, luigivampa-over9000, posted a link this Imgur pic with the… Read more

I love Christmas. I loved it as a kid, and even more as a parent. I loved it as a Christian, and even more as an atheist. Nonetheless, I completely understand that others don’t agree with me. Perhaps one of the best arguments against atheists celebrating Christmas, has been made by my friend, Tom Flynn.  If you don’t know Tom, he is, among other things, the Executive Director of The Council for Secular Humanism and the author of the book, The… Read more

If you have not read the post I wrote about Mother Teresa’s possible sainthood back in May, you really should do so now. The above picture is from that piece, and it is a must forward for all your Catholic friends. The BBC is reporting that Pope Francis has verified the second miracle actualized through Teresa’s hands. It involved the healing of a Brazilian man with multiple brain tumors. As I stated in the before mentioned article, this sets up her… Read more

Today is a very important day. At 7 PM EST, I will be seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Since I am such a jock, I’m sure that is shocking to most of you. That being said, before I run out the door for the day’s activities, I want to share an example of how we are protecting our schools. Check out this report from KTRK-TV news: The Galaxy is now safe. Go about your business. Brother Richard What do you think?: Post a Comment Subscribe… Read more

Apparently, some still believe I contradict myself when it comes to Islam. I wrote extensively about the Charlie Hebdo shootings (here, here, here, here, and here), and said things like this: When will we wake up? Why do we continue to deny religion’s involvement in terrorist attacks when the perpetrators proudly proclaim, “Allahu Akbar?” And, even when I qualify these words by making statements like: Of course, the majority of the world’s Muslims are peace loving, and the idiots who claim… Read more

Want to have some fun? Go through old newspapers like they’re Mad Libs. Every time you see the word Jew, just replace it with Muslim. And when you see the word Hitler, swap it with Trump. It’s fun for the whole family. That being said, our old friend Bryan Fischer, wants to let us know that there’s an even greater threat that’s keeping America from being great again. Check out his important message: You heard it right. The greatest perpetrators… Read more

If you didn’t know, there are a whole set of rules that explain how consecrated communion wafers are to be handled if they are not eaten. Following these directions, a parishioner of the St. Francis Xavier Church in Kearns Utah, returned one during Mass. Following protocol, the priest placed the wafer into water. Under normal circumstances, once the host is dissolved, the water is supposed to be poured down the “sacristies sacrarium” (a drain that does not flow into a sewer,… Read more

Doing a Q&A with blogger and journalist Nicky Clark, Ricky Gervais spoke about many things including his animal rights activism, internet trolls, and the strong women characters in his writing. Of particular interest to me was his comments about the rampant misconceptions about atheism. Here’s that exchange: From the age of eight you’ve been an atheist, what do you think is the biggest misconception people have about atheism? Oh my word, there are so many. From equating it with Satanism… Read more

A while back, I wrote a post entitled, “Questions for Those Who Believe Kim Davis’ Religious Freedoms Are Being Violated.” Before I listed my six questions for those who believe Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licences to same sex couples, I wrote this: Yesterday, when Kim Davis was released from prison, a crime much worse than refusing to issue same-sex marriage licences was committed. One of the best motivational songs ever was forever ruined. No longer will I… Read more
