I don’t think you’re done reading, pal

Hey look, it's an atheist who converted to religion. All it took for him was: a) To read one book about atheism b) To think that one book would give him the needed skepticism to reject the joke that is C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" c) To stop thinking critically immediately afterwards This guy was seduced by the morality argument? What, the 'feelings' you had couldn't be explained WITHOUT referring to a s ...

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.

Luckily, a lovab ...

Shut up, you big meany faces!

Here's another "hey, atheists are being mean and should stop" article from someone clearly annoyed that people on Reddit have less than kind things to say about religion. If you want to find out why I call these guys Reddit Atheists, take a brief dip into the atheism subreddit.

Tortured logic allows gay man to continue heterosexual marriage

One of the truly tragic things about Christianity is its propensity to label behaviors it arbitrarily decides are wrong as "sins". This has caused all kinds of misery for individuals with a sexual orientation different from the majority of us. Gay Christians are often haunted by the idea that their sexual attraction to someone of the same gender is putting their "souls" (another childish concept we can't se ...

Father wants to protect child from reality

When you stop placating people and call them out on their bullshit, you're bound to hurt their feelings. While some of us are comfortable with the idea of letting dumb or dangerous ideas thrive under the banner of "tolerance", there are those brave few who cannot stay silent in the face of the injustices brought on by antiquated religious belief. When Dan Savage recently spoke to students at a High School J ...

We’re the ones with magical thinking?

When trying to defend your religion, you've to pick your battles. In today's modern world, defending the Bible is a full time job. If you aren't busy arguing that the supposed genocide of the Canaanites or Hittites was justified because a bearded sky-deity told the Jews to do it, you're hopelessly defending things like homophobia and slavery. What else can you expect from a series of books written thousands ...
