God is a shitty provider

What's better than a bunch of white, middle class yahoos singing rap lyrics? How about a rap about how God needs you to give him 10 percent of your income, even if it means not buying your groceries or paying your rent? "Before I buy groceries or pay the rent, I've got to give God his full 10 percent, He gives me a Hundred and I give him back ten and I'm blessed all day from beginning to end Why does God ne ...

Egyptian atheist facing blasphemy sentence

Every religion claims to be the one and only truth, but when confronted with conflicting reality, their true colors really come out. Faith is actually a fragile thing: it persists due to ignorance, and is fueled by a raw hatred of anything contrary to its pathetic narrative. Nowhere is this more true than with Islam. This religion is possibly the most insecure religion of them all. Dissent is not tolerated, ...

Ultra-Orthodox Jews harass sexually abused girl

It's hard for individuals unfamiliar with Orthodox Jewish culture to fully understand the scope of isolation in that community. For starters, a large number of Orthodox denominations were a direct response to the assimilation of Jews in society near the end of the 19th century. Believing integration with society was leading to impiety, Orthodox Jews adopted a rather extreme position when it comes to the out ...

Is this why I smoke too much pot?

Divorces, job loss, and unadulterated pot smoking: what do these all have in common? Well, if you don't attend some form of church service according to these fools, your life is going to go down the tubes. You'll be a jobless, pot smoking divorcee without a pot to piss in. Why not instead go every Sunday to be told what a sinning piece of shit you are, followed by the customary tithing of your hard earned i ...

Mark Driscoll thinks Twilight is evil

Ok, I'll admit I think the Twilight series is terrible, but is it evil, sinister, or sick and twisted? It reads more like the kind of book you might expect a desperately lonely fat high school girl to write, with the added murderer/rapist fantasy thrown in. While you can argue about the merits of the story, you can't argue with the sales figures: Stephanie Meyer's series has sold over 116 million copies wor ...

Bill O’Reilly calls David Silverman a Fascist

You have to admire American Atheist president David Silverman for trying to confront the beast that is Bill O'Reilly on his own show. It's a bit like trying to take on Grendel's mother in her own cave: unless you've got the strength of Beowulf, you're probably going to get chewed up. The problem with appearing on Bill's show is that his interview style goes a little something like this: "Shut up and say exa ...

Hypocrite child actor urges fan not to watch shitty show

You can watch the video above, but I don't recommend you do if you're easily annoyed I can't stand TV sitcoms. Maybe it's the fact their predictability is only surpassed by the insipidness of their jokes. Who knows. Generally speaking I tend to ignore the crap out of them and call it a day. One of the chief perpetrator of nauseating trash on TV is the show Two and a Half Men. You might remember former star ...

“War on Christmas” bullshit ramps up

Oh, so this totally isn't religious indoctrination? Thank God! I'm beginning to think it's totally impossible to do anything secular in America without some religious jackass accusing us of waging a "War on Christmas". This pathetic attempt to make Christians appear marginalized has the effect of making them all look like old fools, if you ask me. When there's any kind of story that exploits this fear monge ...

Baby boy dies after botched circumcision

Ok, here's the deal, folks; before you read this article, I have to warn you that you're not going to like reading some of the details of this story. I've written a lot about male genital mutilation (colloquially known as 'circumcision') in the past, but for some reason, this one story sent visuals in my head that I can't shake off. So, you've officially been warned. The story begins in Manchester, where a ...

The Salvation Army exec who stole Christmas

I hate the Salvation Army. First off, they aren't a charitable organization. They are registered as a church, which means while some of the money and goods people give to them do go to the needy, they still run it like it is a business, buying expensive real estate, and more importantly, being exempt from needing to show where it uses its money and for what. Don't believe me? Take a look at their mission st ...
