This mail is for Everyone

This one is addressed to everyone on the site, so you know what to do, people! My name is Brittany. I am 17 years old, and an atheist living in Pensacola, Florida. Something happened just recently in my family that I really want to share with you as well as other atheist communities. I could really use some advice- this problem has been present for as long as I've come out as an atheist and seems to be dete ...

Dan Savage tries to appeal to Liberal Christians

I have to say I strongly disagree with Dan regarding this idea Christianity is being "hijacked" by conservatives. Progressive Christianity is a fairly recent phenomenon. I doubt the thousands of witches burned at the stake would disagree (the last trial for sorcery took place in 1783 in Poland. Hardly ancient history). Religions are all conservative by nature. They demand adherence to strict dogma and tradi ...

Oh no, I’m too aggressive!

Could this guy be more wrong? Here are a couple of choice passages I couldn't help but comment on (as I'm sure most of you will dissect the rest). As crusading atheism is sort of a cause today, it is popular, I don’t want to say among scientists, I mean that’s too general and it isn’t so. Is it ironic for a Christian to use the word "Crusade" when talking about atheism? I sometimes wish these clowns would s ...

Priest fail

Isn't it hilarious how religious people are utterly convinced believing in the absurd makes them better people? Despite plenty of proof to the contrary, it never seems to register that for the most part, religion makes people more xenophobic, more racist, more likely to support torture, and more ignorant. How are you supposed to be more moral when that's the case? If Christianity is supposed to make you mor ...

Kiwi youths uninformed about Easter

How did your Zombie Jesus Weekend turn out? Personally I stuffed myself with food and partied way too hard, but it's pretty much the only way most people I know tend to celebrate. In fact, it looks like most of New Zealand has no fucking clue what the holiday is actually about. According to a super unscientific survey they did, kids are generally ignorant as to the history and purpose of Easter. It's hilari ...

Dead nun credited for medical marvel

With all the bad press they've been getting recently for harboring child-rapists, continuing their campaign to prevent contraceptive use in AIDS-ridden Africa, and saying generally hateful things about gays, the Vatican is looking for a bit of good news. Their deliverance has taken the form of a disfigured young boy, saved from the clutches of death by medical science and a combative immune system. His pare ...

The evils of Missionary work

A recent article on haveyoureadthebible.com on missionary work left me both angry and disgusted. If you've got the time, I highly recommend reading it if you want your blood to boil a little (especially the pictures of these morons on dune buggies and hiking trips). I never grew up in a particularly religious environment, thanks largely to my anti-theist father, so my interactions with missionaries occurred ...

Conservative Christians are hypocrites

When it comes to the right to practice their religion the way they see fit - which includes complaining whenever they aren't allowed to openly discriminate against gays - Conservative Christians take that shit pretty seriously. Unfortunately, they're also a bunch of annoying hypocrites who think every other religion is dangerous idolatry, even when it's a bunch of innocent people dressing up like characters ...

Can’t keep track of your own bullshit, can you guy?

Watch Robby as he attempts to dodge every pertinent question from a real journalist who isn't content throwing him softballs. The best he can muster is this answer: "Christians have built whole dogmas about what happens when you die and we have to be very careful that we don't build whole doctrines and dogmas on what is speculation" Umm, you wrote an entire book that is nothing BUT speculation, dude! Even s ...

Arkansas OK’s bill to make Bible study an elective course

Apparently legislators in Arkansas are convinced the ills of society can be fixed if they ensure students are brainwashed into Christianity. In order to do so, they've passed a Bill that would lay out "guidelines" for public schools who want to offer elective classes on the Bible. Republican Rep. Denny Altes called the Bible the most accurate history book and says students could learn about its influence on ...
