Won’t someone think of the children?!

It doesn't surprise me that Latter Day Saints are always trying to destroy any bill that would allow gays to have equal rights. Here's an exerpt from one of their recent emails concerning a bill which would allow homosexuals to have recognized civil unions: The Civil Union Bill (HB 2234) has been scheduled for a hearing in the Youth and Family Committee this week on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in S ...

Texas loves abstinence teaching

You know what I find so hilarious about abstinence teaching? It isn't the fact it's so ineffective, or states that teach this garbage have higher pregnancy and STD rates. No, what I love above all else is how much that garbage costs. Take Texas, where 96% of their sex ed is abstinence only at the tune of 18 million dollars. Well, that's how much it costs to teach it, but it certainly doesn't reflect the hum ...

Atheist superheroes

Here's an interesting site I came across today, which describes in detail the religious affiliation of different superheroes. Most interesting to me is how light the atheist section is. I am glad, however, that Savage Dragon is in there. He's an atheist DESPITE the fact he's actually met God, which is the ballsiest position I've ever seen on the issue of belief. The list is quite impressive, including even ...

All of the 22 closet atheists sitting in Congress today agree, save one: Pete Stark. The Democratic senator from Northern California has stated he's an agnostic, but also admitted to not believing in a higher power. I can appreciate his diplomatic stance on religio ...

How well do I fit the atheist stereotype?

Atheist Revolution just put up a list of the common stereotypes of atheists. It's not a bad list, but looking at it, I realize that I am myself quite the little stereotype. Here are the qualities I possess: I am politically very liberal. I guess I do hate Christianity, although I will admit that I don't hate Christians. I can be grump, but on me, it's charming. I am prideful, and humility is not my strength ...

Birthday Post!

Hey guys. It's my birthday today, and that means this weekend's posting will be a little slower than usual in order for me to get jiggy with it. I thought this might be a good chance to talk about this patronage idea that I had talked about on my radio show. I realize of course trying to ask for money is like begging for sex; it can often make people uncomfortable, or worse, react negatively. After all, som ...
