Father wants to protect child from reality

When you stop placating people and call them out on their bullshit, you're bound to hurt their feelings. While some of us are comfortable with the idea of letting dumb or dangerous ideas thrive under the banner of "tolerance", there are those brave few who cannot stay silent in the face of the injustices brought on by antiquated religious belief. When Dan Savage recently spoke to students at a High School J ...

Neil deGrasse Tyson gets bitchslapped

If you haven't watched Neil's disappointing and rather insulting Big Think video, I recommend you do; it'll demonstrate what I feel is his intellectual cowardliness in regard to the fundamental issue of his belief. While he's being vetted as Carl Sagan's spiritual successor, Neil lacks this man's intellectual courage, particularly when it comes to fighting the evils of irrational thinking. Carl was never as ...

Exposing the bigotry of religion makes us bullies, apparently

What happens when your privileged place in society begins to erode? Well, like a spoiled child, you relentlessly accuse others of being mean bullies for not letting them have their way. It takes time to become an adult, but expecting religion to mature is unrealistic. Take Matt Barber: He's accusing secularists of being "bullies", and his solution is playground fare: punch them in the mouth, Christians! How ...

Moving week

As many of you may know, I'm in the process of moving from Montreal to Calgary, and because these two cities are so crazy far apart, the actual move itself is going to take several days. That means posting and podcasts are going to slow down a bit until I'm settled in my new home. It doesn't mean I'll be disappearing (you can't pull one of those and expect to make it far in Internetland); it just means with ...

Parents acquitted of torturing daughter thanks to “religious freedom”

In our brave new world, multicultural and diverse as it is, our moral sensibilities can often be rattled by the brutishness and ignorance of many cultural traditions that make their way to our shores. As some of you reading this blog may remember, my heart bleeds for the way African children are tortured due to a dangerous mix of new and ancient religious superstitions. The Christian crusade to possess Afri ...

Living Waters still using “Croc-O-Duck” argument

Despite the fact the whole world makes fun of Ray Comfort and his lapdog Kirk Cameron over their "croc-o-duck" idea, it seems though the pair has decided this argument still holds water. If this is news to you, let me summarize the "theory": because animals evolve slowly over time, Ray believes the process of transmutation would create strange hybrids. One such creature he nicknamed the "Croc-o-duck", and b ...

That’s just sad…

There's so much that's sad with this video it's hard to pinpoint which part stands out, so instead I chose the quotes I felt best represent her special brand of brainwashing: "Me wearing Hijab is my relationship between me and Allah" It's always a good sign when your deity has an inherent distrust of the female form. Better cover it up, since it's the only way you can be guaranteed someone won't molest and ...

The “Homosexual Agenda” is an immoral iceberg…

Actually, the odds of the Titanic hitting that iceberg were astronomically small; as it turns out, it was a series of poor decisions by the crew that led to the disaster. Had the ship actually crashed head on into the iceberg, it would have survived the impact. Ironically, it was their attempt to navigate around it that ultimately led to the ship sinking. So, if I can use their stupid metaphor against them ...

Student refuses to graduate with ceremony held in church

I love these kinds of stories. They help give courage to young people who want to fight for what they believe in. Nahkoura Mahnassi has taken a stand: her school is planning on holding their graduating ceremony in the controversial New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. You might remember that its pastor, Eddie Long, had been accused of sexual misconduct with 4 young men (which was later settled out of court. ...
