Nice going, New Zealand!

Well, finally a bit of good news this week. It seems as though a New Zealand Primary school is no longer offering Bible studies, as no one is actually interested in reading the damn thing. Hey, I speak from experience here: I am, after all, writing a book on the Bible, and trust me when I say it's often a big snooze fest. It's certainly not the kind of material I would recommend to kids (how can you even te ...

Face-in-Book Kickstarter deal selling fast

In case you were debating whether or not you should get your face illustrated in my upcoming book, Bible Stories, you may want to consider the fact that the availability of this option is fading fast. Of the 30 spots, over half are already gone, and the least expensive option (at around 250) has only 5 remaining spots. At this rate, they will likely be gone by the end of the week, so if you are interested i ...

Catholic propaganda election video

You hear that folks, some things aren't negotiable, like defining when life actually starts. Using their super-scientific method of determining what is right and wrong (i.e., do whatever the fucking Pope tells you to do), Catholics want voters to continue to erode the reproductive rights of women, deny gays the same rights as everyone else, and let's not forget force everyone else to placate their crazy non ...

Remember these whackos?

Remember these guys? The Heaven's Gate people had a penchant for Nikes and a pretty unhealthy obsession with the Hale-Bopp Comet. In total, 39 poor saps took their own lives, convinced that doing so would ensure their safe passage aboard a spaceship trailing the comet. After they purchased alien abduction insurance (the logic of this still baffles me) from Lloyd's of London, they prepared a weird mixture of ...

Raped woman, jailed, denied access to morning-after pill due to “religious objections”

There's no denying the fact as of late, the religious right has been flexing its political muscle, and the result has been a steady erosion of women's reproductive rights. It's gotten so bad, in Mississippi a Federal Judge had to get involved when the state effectively declared war on abortion. U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Jordan entered a temporary restraining order and set a hearing for July 11 to det ...

“Bible Stories” Kickstarter campaign book tour

It's looking as though I underestimated how excited people are by my upcoming book, Bible Stories. We've reached our goal of 10k after only the first week, and that's some very exciting news. If we keep up this pace, it means I'll be able to do a book tour, and that would involve doing shows for a live audience! It also means I might be able to commission an animator for Bible Stories. Imagine short cartoon ...

Indian rationalist fights uphill battle for freedom

A few months ago, Sanal Edamaruku, who heads the Indian Rationalist Association (you might remember him as the guy who challenged a witch doctor to put a death curse on him) was charged with 'deliberately hurting the feelings' of Catholics after he exposed a leaking Jesus statue as the fraud it was. He's recently been denied anticipatory bail, and as a consequence, he's currently hiding in Europe while he a ...

Catholic Bishops in Uganda try to resurrect “Kill the Gays” bill

When push comes to shove, religion poisons everything. Trouble is in its DNA, in its very structure. My God is the only god. His way is the only Way. That's why I'm not surprised that Catholic bishops in Uganda - having previously spoken out against the "kill the gays" legislation proposed last year - joined in an ecumenical council of Anglican and Orthodox bishops attempting to resurrect it. Content in the ...

Goatman wants you to have lots of babies

So what do you do if your country is slowly accepting marriage equality, passing health care laws that disallow insurance companies from denying coverage, and even threatening to tax the rich? Why, you segregate yourself from society and form your own theocracy, that's what! In case you actually give a shit who this guy is, and why he has such a hideous/hypnotic beard, you should stop by his website, Christ ...

It’s OK to lie to women about their pregnancy

So, it turns out it's totally OK to give false, misleading information to women seeking to terminate their pregnancies. America has essentially slowly lost its collective mind over the fact women need abortions, regardless of how Jesus lovers feel about it. Mississippi has managed to effectively make it impossible for anyone living in the state to get one (although the Feds had to get involved), and to make ...
