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 ...

California’s Supreme Court upholds Prop 8

It looks like gays wanting to marry in the state of California aren't done fighting for it. The California Supreme court upheld Prop 8, proving once again even state judges are unable to understand their own constitutions. Because lawyers fighting for gay rights had no precedence from which to base their case other than the fact gays are provided fewer rights than their straight counterparts. I'm wondering ...

Miss California’s church thinks homosexuals are child molesters

Some of you may wonder why I talk about gay rights on a site about atheism. You might also wonder why many atheist bloggers also defend the right for gays to marry. Perhaps some of you think they are unrelated issues. However, there is no denying the fact the reason gays are not treated as true members of society is because of religious intolerance which seeks to marginalize this group. I personally have a ...

Miss California is a bigot

It's a shame physically beautiful people can be rotten on the inside, but then again, is it really that surprising? The Miss USA pageant had Perez Hilton, the openly gay celebrity, asked Carrie Prejean what she thought about gay marriage.  Her response did not impress the judges: "I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other," Prejean responded. "But in my country, and in my family, ...

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 ...
