Pink Swastika author Scott Lively charged with crimes against humanity

If you don't know who Scott Lively is, he's the monster who authored The Pink Swastika, a book I've derided in the past for its pseudo-historical claim that Nazis were a secret gay organization intent on destroying heterosexuality. It ranks about as high as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of historical verisimilitude. In March of 2009, Scott and a posse of other Evangelical Christians traveled ...

Labeling atheism as a thought crime

I found this hilariously offensive letter to the editor from an Irish newspaper, and I just had to include it. It's a complaint regarding a show called "Liveline" that happened to have featured an atheist upset at a law that was passed in 2009 that would fine blasphemers thousands of dollars for "offending" religious rubes (I admit it's a bit old, but it's totally hilarious): Why in the name of God (oops so ...

Bigamy is not a crime

I don't watch much TV, so it came as a bit of a surprise a new reality show on TLC, featuring a polygamist couple, has recently attracted the attention of Utah police. They are investigating the show in order to see if they can prosecute Kody Brown and his three "wives" for bigamy. This so-called crime carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in jail if found guilty. It's doubtful this will go anywhere, since ...

Pray to solve crime: UK Home Office provides grant for Christian police

Apparently the Home Office in Great Britain has money to burn, as they've  given the Christian Police Association £10,000 (or about $16,000) to help their campaign aimed at getting the public to pray to help prevent crime. They are already claiming the program, which they've already initiated, is having some major success: In one particular area, an officer was investigating an incident but he had not been ...

CHAPTER 1: GENESIS   Creation: Part One In the beginning of everything that ever was, God created the heavens and the Earth. A boring, formless mass of liquid cloaked in darkness, the Earth had relatively low property value but tons of potential. The Spirit of God, hovering above it like a comic book villain, said “Let there be light” and the whole place lit up magically without any point of origin. To ...

For Canada’s “Office of Religious Freedom”, non-believers don’t matter

As much as we Canadians make fun of Americans (yes, I am a Canuck, people), the truth is that our own country isn't really that much better when it comes to religious interference in government. With the Conservative party in power, it seems as though they are intent on copying the American model: in other words, they wish to turn this country into a mini-sectarian state in order to please their highly reli ...

So, is this what getting owned by a Muslim is supposed to look like?

This video, hilariously titled "Dan Barker gets OWNED by Muslim Hamza Tzortzis", showcases perfectly the kind of pathetic, nonsense arguments you get into when talking to these apologists. Tellingly, the video does not offer a chance for Barker to reply, so I thought I might do him that solid. Let's take a look at his argument, shall we? Asinine Assumption #1: We know God exists, so arguments for God isn't ...

Catholic Priest blames women for bringing violence on themselves

Do I even need to continue to speak out against religion? Seems like these days, these guys are doing a better job convincing Catholics to leave in droves than I ever could, and all they need to do is speak openly about their shitty beliefs. Take the words of Father Piero Corsi, who during his Christmas address to his Italian congregation thought it would be the perfect time to accuse abused women of bringi ...

Egyptian atheist facing blasphemy sentence

Every religion claims to be the one and only truth, but when confronted with conflicting reality, their true colors really come out. Faith is actually a fragile thing: it persists due to ignorance, and is fueled by a raw hatred of anything contrary to its pathetic narrative. Nowhere is this more true than with Islam. This religion is possibly the most insecure religion of them all. Dissent is not tolerated, ...

Don’t believe in God in Kentucky? Get ready for jail time!

It's not enough that religious folks are always shoving their religion down our throats; they also now want to enforce the 'crime' of not believing in their invisible friend. If you can believe this (and trust me, I'm still in shock), the state of Kentucky has effectively declared war on non-believers, threatening jail time for anyone who fails to "recognize the primacy of the Christian God": In Kentucky, a ...
