What a textbook in Louisiana looks like

You all know by now that the educational system in Louisiana is rapidly deteriorating thanks to Governor Bobby Jindal and his relentless crusade to institute voucher programs that end up benefiting religiously run schools. He may have come out recently begging for the GOP not to become the 'stupid party', but he's actively working to ensure his constituents are ever more ignorant about the real world. The p ...

Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy

The bravery of religion is yet again on display, this time in Pakistan where a man has been sentence to death for supposedly insulting the prophet Mohammed. There's a familiar pattern that arises in these parts: the predominately Muslim population has a few altercations with other religious groups that are Christian, and suddenly the lone person is accused of blasphemy and is usually beaten, followed by the ...

Eric Hovind gets his ass kicked by 6th grader

So, what's more embarrassing: not being able to properly answer the challenges of a 11 year old, or needing to try and bully your way out of answering his question? Here is Hovind's argument in a nutshell: 1) If you don't know everything, you can't be sure of anything 2) God knows everything and tells me things 3) Therefore all true knowledge comes from God. The kid's response cuts through his second and th ...

Marco Rubio doesn’t know how dumb he is

If you weren't already sick of the race to the White House, you're going to hate the next 4 years of your life, as the media can't help but trip over themselves trying to predict the possible candidates for 2016. One prospect for Republicans is a Hispanic Florida Senator by the name of Marco Rubio. He's made the new recently for saying some profoundly dumb shit: I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what ...

The Atheist who stole Christmas

Once upon a time there was a mean old atheist who didn't like the fact his government was showing obvious favoritism to the dominant religion of his fellow citizens. He dared to ask that other holiday displays not affiliated with the mythology of Jesus also be allowed to be publicly displayed, and a more inclusive form of festivities could be added, so as to reduce the alienation of others. Luckily, a lovab ...

Well, this is embarrassing…

You would think that after spending months reading and studying the Bible, I would do better on this quiz that scoring 22 out of 50 questions. To be fair, I haven't done the New Testament at all, but I should totally have gotten some of those early answers (like the punishment for a woman being raped and not screaming loud enough. You're better than that, Jake!). Ok, it's time for a friendly contest: Who ca ...

Irish PM doesn’t want to feel rushed into changing abortion law

Since I first blogged about this a few days ago, the death of Savita Halappanavar has caused a lot of understandable outrage in Ireland. It seems her highly avoidable passing has rudely awakened a generation of young people who are shocked their own health could be threatened due to the persistence of religious dogma. Even more shocking, they're about to realize change is impossibly slow, given the ones hol ...

FFRF sues IRS for failing to enforce tax-exempt rules for religion

Now that the election is over and President Obama no longer has to be afraid of Evangelicals bent on his destruction, it's time to put aside petty politics and enforce the law in regards to religious institutions and their supposed neutrality when it comes to politics. We all know countless religious organizations have been violating the rules of their tax-exempt status, which stipulates pastors are not all ...

Cindy Jacobs thinks wishful thinking stops terrorists

Thank the dead Palestinian Jew who probably never even existed that Cindy Jacobs and her group of whackjobs were around in 2011 to protect us with her 'prayer cover' that's been actively thwarting terrorist's attempts. Also in more personal news, I have a rock that can protect you from being mauled by a tiger. I'm currently selling it for the low-low price of $999.99, so you better move if you want my usele ...
