String of atheism signs vandalized, no real action taken by officials

I know many of you out there think making holiday displays and fighting to have them displayed is a waste of time, but with the recent strings of vandalism against our property, not to mention the ridiculous reasons given by city officials for rejecting these banners helps highlight the fact that atheists are still a vilified and abused minority. This echos a report by the International Humanist and Ethical ...

Catholic Priest blames women for bringing violence on themselves

Do I even need to continue to speak out against religion? Seems like these days, these guys are doing a better job convincing Catholics to leave in droves than I ever could, and all they need to do is speak openly about their shitty beliefs. Take the words of Father Piero Corsi, who during his Christmas address to his Italian congregation thought it would be the perfect time to accuse abused women of bringi ...

Dutch Catholics desperate to jump ship after Pope’s bigoted speech

The world is changing, but this isn't a fact that pleases the Catholic Church too much. Concerned their ability to dictate the lives of their fellow human beings is waning, the Pope recently addressed his fellow Catholics to wish them a joyous Christmas, and attempted to convince the world that two dudes trying to marry one another was a threat to world peace, and goes against nature (kind of like celibacy, ...

Who needs a lab when you have a green screen?

You know what's great about being an 'Intelligent Design' scientist? You get to save all of the money you would normally be spending on electron microscopes, computers, DNA sequencing machines or a host of other expensive equipment. Why bother to invest in technology when your premise is the world of make-believe is more real than the physical one? The only 'equipment' you need is a lab coat, a Bible, and a ...

Can you believe this guy?

I don't often get trolled, but when I do, it's usually something epic. Take this "Marcus" character for instance: he commented on an article I wrote about a ridiculous book written called The Pink Swastika, by a religious fundy who claims Hitler and his thugs were actually a gang of 'homofascists', intent on corrupting the world with their 'gayness'. This revisionist history completely ignores the fact that ...

Charlton Heston freaks your kids out

Working on the Bible Stories book has made me realize it's categorically impossible to gloss the horror out of these stories. The proof? Just watch this kid's Bible cartoon, and just how creepy it is.

Yeah, i'd imagine a kid having some pretty serious nightmare and t ...
