The Catholic church really is full of pedophiles.

It's difficult to actually assess just how corrupt the Catholic Church is, but judging by the testimony of Father Kevin Lee, the accusation often lobbied at the church - mainly that it provides an attractive employment opportunity for sexual abusers - seems legitimate. Lee, who was fired for marrying a woman (the nerve!), had been documenting allegations of abuse for years, and found himself frustrated by t ...

Who wants to listen to me debate a religious nut?

I've been working like a dog on The Essentials recently, which explains why I haven't bothered to put up a podcast this week. Editing these shows is so time consuming, with a typical episode taking between 8-12 hours of nonstop work (the biggest job so far has roughly 2,000 individual edits). Of course, the shows sound amazing, and by Monday I should have one preview episode to wow you guys. In the meantime ...

Help strip politically bent religious institutions of their tax exempt status

Remember a few weeks back when over 1000 preachers openly defied the IRS and began politically endorsing Mitt Romney? Well, it certainly wasn't the first time these guys broke the law, and it certainly won't be the last. This stunt was in an effort to repeal a law that until now, the IRS has refused to enforce. Gutsy, this was not. "Pulpit Freedom Sunday" has been staged annually since 2008 by a group calle ...

You can now comment via Facebook

Ok folks, since ditching the forums, I promised that I would include Facebook comments, allowing you to track conversations in real time. See, papa bear keeps his promises now. So, you can all be officially excited and I encourage all of you to GO NUTS ON COMMENTING. I can't stress how helpful that is in spreading the word. Have fun! ...

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

You could easily replace the word 'segregation' with 'marriage equality', and echo the same argument modern bigots are using to try and justify their homophobia. They talk of freedom from tyranny, ignoring completely the fact that it is their hatred and intolerance which creates the inequity that so characterizes tyrannies. The good news is the man in this video, George Wallace Jr., would eventually change ...

New South Wales Premier OKs inquiry into clergy abuse

Tell me if this doesn't sound like a kick ass movie: a police detective -convinced the police force has been helping clergy cover up sexual abuse- sends a letter to the premier urging him to open an investigation into the whole affair. If it wasn't actually happening in New South Wales, I'd think maybe it was a cheesy John Grisham novel. Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox (sounds like a movie name, right?) ...

Seth MacFarlane interviewed by Bill Maher

A bit old, but it turns out I don't ever pay attention to Piers Morgan (can you blame me?), even when he's replaced by someone infinitely cooler like Bill Maher. Here he is talking abut how the Emmys suck, how he's not sure what to think abut Obama (his response is actually pretty fresh), and his upcoming "Cosmos" series that I'm still on the fence about (it's a tough sell, trying to match the awesomeness o ...

Beck wants you to become a Pilgrim

With conservatives still freaking out over the fact their president is still black, you can expect some of the nuttier flavors of the Religious Right to step up their rhetoric. Glenn Beck, straight off his prediction God had promised the White House to a Mormon, has advised his aged listeners that the world will soon end, and their only recourse is to buy plenty of farmland and guns. Inflation is coming, th ...

Maybe Pat was talking to Satan

I wonder if Pat Robertson remembers this little gem from back in January, when he claimed God told him in advance that Obama was going to lose the election...which he of course did not. If I was him, I'd just pull the same stunt Mohammed did whenever he was caught making a bullshit prediction: just blame it on the devil. He's the go-to guy for all your lame excuses: did you cheat on your wife? The devil mad ...

Maryland gets Marriage Equality

I know the big news story today is President Obama being re-elected, but I hope this bit of news doesn't get buried under all the brouhaha: it seems as though the tiny state of Maryland has legalized same-sex marriage by approving "Question 6" on the ballot. Now, before you celebrate this victory, you should know a few important details: Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian ...
