Phillipines joins Dark Ages

Thanks to the progressive beliefs of Christianity, citizens in the small suburb of Alabang will need a prescription to buy birth control pills or condoms. Violators of the ordinance's provisions will be fined an amount no less than P1,000 but not exceeding P5,000 for the first offense. A second offense will be fined not less than P5,000 and will merit imprisonment for not less than one month but not exceedi ...

Sectarian peace in all its glory

Nigeria is currently the battleground between Christianity and Islam. Since last year, over 2000 people have died fighting. Despite communities trying to sign various peace treaties with one another, every once in a while they just start attacking one another again. It's a perfect example of the kind of division and strife that mutually incompatible beliefs cause. The latest incident involves 18 Christians ...

Religion is for the simple

There's an article that appeared in the Guardian today entitled "Christianity: a faith for the simple", and while I agree with the premise of the article, I feel as though the author got everything precisely wrong on the subject. There was a recent study done in the US polling the religiosity of the country's scientists, which I'm unhappy to report is higher than in most other countries. Of course, the rela ...

Army wants to assess “Spiritual Fitness”

It bothers me to no end religious people are convinced the only way to cope with difficult situations and circumstances is to believe in a higher power. It's just something they claim without any real evidence to suggest it's true. It merely sounds good to their deluded ears. So imagine my complete lack of surprise when I heard the US Army has devised a survey designed to test the relative spiritual "fitnes ...

Harry Potter Actress beaten, threatened for dating Non-Muslim

There's an interesting Cracked article entitled "5 Ridiculous Things You Probably Believe About Islam", and while I thought it fair to point out religion hasn't always been a gigantic problem for this world, it fundamentally glosses over the fact in many parts of the world, the dangerous combination of faith and tradition leads to theĀ suppression, torture and murder of women. It's true Christianity, on a wh ...

The Pope goes on the offense

The best defense is a good offense, and no one knows this like the Catholic Church. The Vatican is busy trying to get everyone to forget they've been raping kids en masse, so they're going for the same strategy they've always employed when things get dicey: Find a scapegoat. The key to finding a good scapegoat is to first find someone who is less popular than you are. What's less popular than child molester ...

Christians are horribly confused about women’s rights

The Hitchens/Blair debate has been over for a while, but for some Catholics, the fact Tony was utterly tooled is still a bit of a sore spot. With all those weeks passed since the debate, a few theists are still trying to figure out what Blair could have said to hold his own. During the debate, Hitchens made the point religion has done no favor to women, and only by emancipating them from the slavery of thei ...

My head hurts now

I know I shouldn't watch any Fox News stuff involving everyone's favorite airhead, but anytime I see a headline like "America declares War on Christianity", I can't help myself. Here's a little piece of advice from your friendly neighbors up North: stop calling all conflicts "war". It's insanely dangerous rhetoric, and you devalue the meaning of the word when it comes to the "horror" of Christmas parades be ...

Military Chaplains worry about inability to discriminate

Evangelical chaplains in the military are suffering! They're worried the eventual repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" will jeopardize their ability to openly discriminate against gays and lesbians who might come to them seeking spiritual help. Now while I generally feel homosexuality and religion mix about as well as oil and water, you can't deny the fact statistically, gays are actually more religious than t ...

Kontribute to the Klan today

How many times have you been sitting at home worried to death your light skin pigmentation isn't being recognized enough? Are you worried some of the darker apes might undermine the "revival" of good old fashioned bigotry and racism? Well, if you have more busted vehicles in your lawn than you do teeth and you're feeling generous, then head on over the the KKK.bz, where donations are being accepted to fight ...
