Moral high ground my ass

According to this survey, church goers are more likely to support torture. Evangelicals were the group that support it the most, and considering that because of them, we had to endure 8 years of W. Bush, then yeah, that makes sense to me (also, The Passion of the Christ is probably the longest snuff movie in history). Are you not as tired as I am with all the moral righteousness of Christians? There isn't a ...

Billy Corgan is a religious whacko

I was never a huge Smashing Pumpkins fan, but I could at least appreciate their music. It was angsty, raw, and very emotional. Lead singer and songwriter Billy Corgan obviously had some personal demons (which he attributes to being abused by his step mother as a child), but these usually channeled into moderately entertaining music. That, of course, was before he became born again and created the monstrosit ...

Atheism sucks, apparently

Here's a crappy website that thinks it's laid out an airtight case against atheism. Considering the fact geocities is dead and buried, I wonder if anyone will bother migrating this steaming pile of crap to some other free hosting company. Here are some hilarious quotes: Second, the atheistic world view is irrational and cannot provide an adequate basis for intelligible experience. You see, an atheistic worl ...

Nate Phelps on his experience in the Westboro Baptist Church

If you've never heard of the Westboro Baptist Church, they are the guys who picket the funerals of soldiers with placards that say 'God hates Fags' and other hate speech. The patriarch of the family is a man by the name of Fred Phelps, Nate's father. The following is a speech he gave at the American Atheist convention in Atlanta, Georgia. It's some really stirring stuff, so if you have a few minutes, take t ...

Blasphemy bill proposed in Ireland

Alright, you guys in Ireland need to get your shit together. When reading this article on a proposed "Defamation Bill", I had failed to realize it was already a crime to defame religion in your Republic. The problem is, of course, the very concept of 'freedom of speech' conflicts with any special provisions meant to protect religion. Apparently, having +90% of your population actual believers isn't enough. ...

Freaky/Fascinating letter

Superfan Kate forwarded me an email she received when attempting to contact the maker of the film Return of Christ. Rather than a simple "hi, thanks for contacting me", Kate got a long diatribe about this man's own personal world view. What I found most intriguing is how Josiah has mentally justified his beliefs. Here is the first part of the letter: My Hope is the first thing that distinguishes me from thi ...

The View is annoying

The quality of discourse on TV is usually quite poor, and I detest when obviously undereducated entertainers try their hand at moralizing on the issue of religion. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is physically attractive, and this fact has convinced her that she is capable of an original thought. Unfortunately, Liz is just another religious mouthpiece who hasn't actually taken the time to examine a world view not dict ...
