What kind of God would destroy His Styrofoam son???

The San Francisco Chronicle's website has a hilarious column detailing 19 reasons why God allowed Touchdown Jesus to burn last week. Here's some of my favorites: 6) The real Jesus of historical record, being a grizzled, husky, musky, dark-skinned Jew with short, curly black hair who rarely showered and smelled of goat droppings and dried sweat, and who had a thing for screaming random prophesies in the stre ...

FFRF talks about their Daily Show experience

When the Daily Show did a segment on the Freedom From Religion Foundation's quest to stop a Mother Teresa stamp from being issued by the US Post Office, I figured that we atheists would end up looking not so hot as a result.

The newly formed Citizens Against Religious Bi ...

Another teacher has been fired from her job as a math teacher at a Catholic school after being outed as an atheist. What makes this story interesting is how they found out about her lack of faith: Abby Nurre said she was called into the principal's office just before winter break and asked about Atheist Nexus, a social network that bills itself as site for "nontheists."

FRC lobbied US congress against gay death penalty denouncement

We know the Family Research Council are a bunch of lying bigots who hate homosexuals, but they've really been taking it up a notch lately. Just last week they released a bogus 'study' claiming if Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed, straight soldiers would be at a heightened risk of being raped by gay soldiers. Now comes word the FRC didn't only lobby Congress against DADT legislature and same sex marriage, ...
