This is what you get for mixing religion and politics…

One of the most aneurysm-inducing quotes of 2012 had to be faux-atheist S.E. Cupp's comment that she would never vote for an atheist president. Believing she had a point by saying she couldn't trust anyone who didn't have God as a moral compass, what Cupp and her similarly minded ilk fail to realize, however, is that beliefs predicated on violent nonsense have the tendency to reflect Bronze Age barbarism. M ...

Pope’s butler gets 18 months in jail for leaked memos

So, what do you get for exposing the corruption of an organization like the Vatican? Well, how about an 18 month prison term handed down by the very institution you were trying to expose? Oh, and you can add the cost of the trial to the list of his expenses: The pope's former butler, Paolo Gabriele, was convicted Saturday of aggravated theft for leaking confidential papal documents and sentenced to 18 month ...

Get ready for some free energy!

When I was a teen, I bought into the bullshit that is Qi (sometimes spelled 'chi'). I couldn't help it: if you've ever watched the Shaolin Monks do their thing, you might understand why I thought their impressive physical feats were only made possible because of some superhuman element. Fueled by the mythology of comic book heroes, I desperately wanted it to be true (which I was to later learn is the first ...

And the mother of the year award goes to... Christian fundamentalist Julia Lovemore, 41, killed daughter Faith by stuffing her mouth with paper then dousing her in white spirit and jumping up and down on her body.

Rob Schneider is a dangerous moron

Have you ever stopped and considered just how stupid we are as a species sometimes? If we aren't relentlessly polluting our own inescapable environment, we're putting our lives at risk by failing to take antibiotics properly, or not bothering to vaccinate our children out of some stupid notion that this life saving invention causes completely unrelated disorders. Part of the reason we're as dumb as we are i ...

Islam’s outrage industry causes more destruction

With the glory days of Islamic enlightenment a long and distant memory, the only thing it seems this religion can muster is violent outrage these days. If it isn't a piece of shit Imam claiming that all freethinkers should be prosecuted and jailed, it's a bunch of religious thugs stirring up violence in order to remove any rivals. In Bangladesh, a country of some roughly 140 million Muslims, the outrage cau ...

“Jesus Rifles” still in circulation

Back in 2010, the American Army got busted for having rifle sites with Bible verses engraved on the side. The company responsible, Trijicon, got in enough shit that they promised to not only remove the offending verses, but also replace the scopes to avoid the appearance that the Army was some kind of invading Christian aggressor. Well, it's been over 2 years, and these fucking things are still in circulati ...

Site News!

Ok, As I've mentioned on the shows this month, TGA is growing up a little, and that means we're switching up things so they run more smoothly. First, as many of you may know, the $20 option is no longer available starting October 1st. That's because this option will be replaced with The Essentials DVD, which I'm currently slaving over in order to complete it before Christmas. Regular members will be upgrade ...

Churches double down on political involvement

As election day approaches, religious institutions are taking advantage of the uncertainty and religious resurgence to attempt to undo a law prohibiting them from participating in the political process. Now, we all know the IRS is a toothless organization when it comes to this issue: only once have they ever bothered to enforce this law, despite blatant violations (such as when the Mormon Church spent 30 mi ...

Did this mythological character really have a wife?

I dislike religious historians. I can't for the life of me fathom how any of these men and women can take their profession seriously when they have so much invested in their beliefs. Who among them is willing to question the historicity of their own God? Even if they are, can we trust the blinders of faith won't simply make it impossible for them to be objective? For an example of what I'm talking about, ta ...
