Scumbag Rabbis won’t stop spreading herpes to babies

As Germany and the Netherlands consider banning the barbaric and totally useless practice of 'male circumcision' (a better word is simply genital mutilation), they face mounting resistance from religious groups who accuse them of anti-Semitism or other such nonsense. While the WHO claims it can help lower the spread of HIV, the actual supporting figures are pretty weak, and may actually lead to risky behavi ...

That’s my kind of education!

With countless Universities gleefully handing out Doctorates of Nonsense (commonly known as theology), it's nice to hear that Pitzer College will be offering a Major in Secularism this fall. How cool is that? Starting this fall, Pitzer College, a small liberal arts institution in Southern California, will inaugurate a department of secular studies. Professors from other departments, including history, philo ...

“Crystal Cathedral” megachurch files for bankruptcy

You'd think collecting over 2 million dollars a month would be sufficient income for any religious organization, but apparently it simply isn't enough money for the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove California to pay their bills. They've recently filed for bankruptcy after amassing an impressive 43 million dollar debt (a major chunk of it being the mortgage on this tacky monstrosity). MSNBC reported the amo ...

Being Black and Gay sucks

If you're black and gay, you have my pity. I can't imagine a minority group so vehemently opposed to homosexuality. They often make the sermons of white Alabama preachers seem almost tame by comparison. It's no secret as a group, African Americans are more religiously conservative than the average American. Since many believe in the literal word of God, it doesn't leave a lot of room for tolerance and under ...

Religious Freedom is a Paradox

If there's one thing you have to credit religion with, it's their ability to insert themselves into things, often painfully and occasionally in a way that merits jail time, but mysteriously enough results in no real punishment. Religion is so skilled at doing this they manage to convince throngs of people to believe without them, the fabric of their lives would fall apart. Take marriage for instance, how ma ...

Miss Beverly Hills is a crazy bigot

I guess American beauty queens are under the impression the general public gives a shit about their inane opinions. When Miss California, Carrie Prejean, became a spokesperson for the religious right and their campaign against homosexual marriage, I thought her own stupidity and lack of insight alone would be enough to invalidate her worthless thoughts. No such luck; if anything, her bigoted views have made ...

Lancaster mayor claims city is “growing a Christian community”

Seems like every politician these days has forgotten about the First Amendment, since they can't stop trying to shove their religion down everyone's throats. The latest clueless jackass is Mayor R. Rex Parris of Lancaster, in Southern California, who said during his annual State of the City address that the city was growing a Christian community. I need [Lancaster residents] standing up and saying we're a C ...

Dictionary banned in elementary school

Hey parents, may I ask you something? Do you ever fear that the degree to which you wish to protect your children from any kind of harm makes you absolutely batshit insane sometimes? The rest of us childless folks have to wonder what kind of effect having offspring has on your brain, because your behavior can often be described as utterly mental. Take this story involving parents banning the 6th edition of ...

Smithsonian gives shitty creationist movie the boot

The more evidence we gather showing the truth about evolution, the more vitriolic creationists get. Recently they tried to sneak a shitty "documentary" called Darwin's Dilemma into the Smithsonian's IMAX theater, but they were smacked down when the California Science Center used a special clause in the contract to cancel their engagement. The Discovery Institute is now trying to sue the CSC for not allowing ...

Lesson 9 is driving California bigots crazy

I'm going to make no bones about this; if you find homosexuality repulsive, wrong, unnatural, weird, disgusting, freakish or sinful, you are a bigot. Now, the good news is all of us are a little bigoted in a bunch of usually unconscious ways, so you're not alone. In all honesty, before my buddy Jeff came out of the closet, I have to admit to having been a bit of a bigot myself. As is often the case with us ...
