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. For the love of their provincial god Yahweh, they wrote a song about Isaac being bound up and prepared to be killed for some imaginary friend. Yeah, i'd imagine a kid having some pretty serious nightmare and t ...

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 ...
