Church tried to lure kids into creepy van for baptisms

It used to be you only needed to warn your kids not to trust strangers trying to lure them into their vehicles for fear they might be kidnapped. Now parents in Colorado Springs have to worry about the Cornerstone Baptist Church luring their kids inside their creepy vans in order to baptize them. That's what nearly happened to a 7th grader at Russell Middle School. Administrators immediately sent a warning o ...

So true…

Why is this evil dinosaur still alive? What monstrous entity keeps breathing life into such a contemptuous and inhuman character? Perhaps there is a God, and he has a cruel, cruel plan for us all. ...

Shocker: atheists are despised!

Austin Cline over at About.com put together this comprehensive list of surveys showing just how despised atheists are as a minority. When Americans were asked who they would vote for, the atheist candidate was always the most hated one. For people like you and me, this kind of attitude seems pretty puzzling. Sure, we can be a bunch of killjoys at parties, but statistically, we are less likely to commit viol ...

GOP hates science

Republicans have slowly turned into a bunch of science hating rednecks. They deny every piece of science that contradicts their narrow 'God gave us oil for our use' view. This guy has refused to answer the question of whether or not he believes in evolution. He either doesn't or refuses to admit he does to please his undereducated and extremely religious constituents. Both of these possibilities are upsetti ...

Leading their sheep astray

The image of sheep is a popular metaphor in Christianity. Jesus is portrayed as a shepherd, leading his flock into paradise. Believers are encouraged to be generous, kind, and meek, all qualities of good sheep. At the time the Bible was written, the profession of shepherd was common, and it's easy to understand how the romanticism of this job would appeal to the people of that period. But there is something ...

More exorcisms gone wrong

I wish everyone just stopped trying to exorcise demons out of people. It's an obviously very dangerous, and utterly pointless thing to do. Of course, you can't seem to get superstitious ignoramuses to sit and listen to reason. Now it looks like ten people will soon be going to jail over the death of Janet Moses, a New Zealand woman who drowned during one of these stupid curse-lifting ceremonies. The troop i ...

Jesus Camp in 9 minutes

If you've never seen Jesus Camp, here is a YouTube video with all the really crazy parts condensed into 9 minutes. I love the clapping kids when that gigantic woman says Harry Potter would have been stoned to death if he was living in the time of Jesus. Also scary is the guy who asks "How many of you would gladly give up your life for Jesus?" ...

Alberta is run by morons

I can't beat around the bush when it comes to Alberta and their education policy: moronic is too kind a word, but I'm working on toning down my swearing. Their government is proposing a new bill allowing parents to pull their children from discussions of evolution or homosexuality in public schools, and it's expected to pass. Parents who want their children to be sheltered from evolutionary fact, or from se ...
