Glenn Beck blames gang violence on atheism, and Obama

Here Glenn decides random and isolated acts of violence have, as their root cause, a secular leaning. In the video a young man is tragically beaten and killed. In Beck's eyes, he sees too few tears in the eyes of witnesses, something he blames on the fact young people are less religious than they used to be. Even Beck admits he has no idea what's happening in this video, but it certainly doesn't stop him fr ...

Tell it like it is, Barack

I've been very hard on President Obama, partially because the office itself requires all kinds of bullshit religious tap dancing meant to appease the religious right. Still, it's nice to know this President doesn't think he's being instructed by God, but rather by the mandate handed to him by the people of the United States of America. Is this what having someone smart in office feels like? ...

Obama defends the Constitution

There's still a bit of hope that not every American politician has lost sight of the importance of their founding document, the Constitution. Barack Obama went on the offensive, criticizing the GOP for a comment Sarah Palin made about him in a speech: "Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights." Obama stated that habeus ...

Obama talks about our god: science

As ripe and low hanging a fruit as it would be to pick, I'm trying to stay away from a few topics on this blog: people killing over religion abroad, and ignorant politicians believing in ignorant things. These two topics are so overdone you can't really look at a news site without reading about it, so I'll leave it alone. Yes, I'm aware Sarah Palin is the atheist equivalent of the anti-christ (well not real ...

Play soccer: go straight to Hell

Come on...There's no fucking way this guy is for real. I refuse to believe that any human being can be so shockingly ignorant. According to his logic, the ungodliness of socialism (which starts with an "S") is spread via soccer, which does not allow you to use all of your God-given limbs. And of course, we all know what other sinister words begin with the letter "S": sodomy, satanism, and worst of all, supe ...

How the US really feels about gays

Signing a UN declaration is roughly as binding as your New Years resolution. Still, they are symbolic representations, somewhat like a lofty resolution, indicating an important issue which needs attention. It's why I'm appalled the US failed to sign a UN declaration aiming at decriminalizing homosexuality. Of course, I'm not entirely surprised, since the government seems to have no regard for civil libertie ...

McCain talks science, technology

We mentioned a while back that John McCain and Barack Obama were answering questions relating to science and technology on a website called Science Debate 2008. Obama released his answers a few weeks ago and now John McCain has responded as well. You can now read the two candidates' responses side by side here. ...

Conservapedia proves Atheists are Fatty Fattersons

Oh Conservapedia, you're the gift that keeps on giving. We recently donated some money to Wikipedia, the reality-based crowd sourced encyclopedia, so I suppose it's only 'fair and balanced' we give its right wing la-la land equivalent some love too in the form of a post. On its front page next to such fine articles as "Is Barack Hussein Obama a president, or is he a dictator?" and "More than a thousand scie ...

Careful, you might bring down atheism!

In the past, I've been critical of a number of atheists who have discouraged me from participating and expanding a broader secular movement. These 'naysayers' now have a name, according to Austin Cline. These are 'Uncle Tom Atheists', and they are, apparently, a big problem. I'd like to start by pointing out how terribly insulting that phrase is. I'm not black, but I have many friends who are, and this moni ...
