That’s just sad…

There's so much that's sad with this video it's hard to pinpoint which part stands out, so instead I chose the quotes I felt best represent her special brand of brainwashing: "Me wearing Hijab is my relationship between me and Allah" It's always a good sign when your deity has an inherent distrust of the female form. Better cover it up, since it's the only way you can be guaranteed someone won't molest and ...

Do we need religion to be a moral society?

Honestly, this is a silly question. It would be more accurate to ask "can we still be a moral society despite religion's influence?" Let's remember for a moment the world is still made a more miserable place because of sectarian infighting. How many regions of the world are currently engaged in immoral acts of violence against one another specifically in the name of their religion? When the Catholic bishop ...

And the Mother of the Year Award Goes to…

What do you do when your uppity, independent minded 19 year old daughter has the gall to refuse an arranged marriage with a stranger twice her age? Why, you burn her with a hot spoon, that's what! What better way to preserve your cultural heritage than by torturing your loved ones into submission. Hey, isn't that what Islam means? Yusra Farhan won't be winning any "Mother of the Year" awards, especially con ...

American Atheist new Billboards advertise in Arabic and Hebrew

Despite living in a (supposedly) secular environment, many Americans are unwilling to identify themselves as Atheists for fear of losing their jobs, their loved ones, or the community bond they have worked so hard to forge. In some extremely isolated communities, potential non-believers may be completely unaware that millions of others don't subscribe to any religion. Often, this knowledge alone can make th ...

Judge dismisses sectarian assault on Atheist, blames him instead

Imagine you get physically assaulted for speaking your mind, and when it was time for your attacker to face justice, he's sent merrily on his way by a Judge who shares his specific religious convictions. Would you not regard this as a gross miscarriage of justice? Well, that's exactly what happened to fellow non-believer Ernest Perce, who was assaulted last October during a parade. Representing the Pennsylv ...

Gingrich tells evangelicals “we need to defend ourselves”

In a continued effort to try and still be relevant, Newt Gingrich recently spoke to a modestly sized crowd in Cumming, Georgia assuring them of his (false) piety, and warning his dwindling support base that it was time for evangelicals to "defend themselves": "The other side will fight back and they will fight back on two fronts. You will have radical Islamists who want to kill us and you will have seculari ...

Rebecca Watson thinks r/atheism reddit full of misogynists

Here's something I've learned in all my years of blogging: if you look for something hard enough, you'll find it. In my case, it's examples of religious stupidity that I zero in on. I realize that cheap laughs and easy jokes may not give the complete picture of a particular religion (usually Christianity or Islam), but if I was trying to be fair I wouldn't be having any fun. I want you to keep this in mind, ...

Fearlessly naked in Egypt

It takes guts to stand up for what you believe in when you live in a repressive country. While we in the West enjoy the freedom to post nude photos of ourselves whenever we want, there are some countries - in this case Egypt - where doing so can get you in a lot of trouble. It was in the spirit of protest that Aliaa Magda Elmahd posted naked pictures of herself on her blog to highlight the fact that the cou ...

The Gaystopo and liberal fascism

You've probably noticed the new tactic from bigoted religionists claiming that their rights (specifically the right to discriminate against people for their sexual orientation) are being infringed. Well, this strategy has now morphed into a baseless accusation of fascism by a right wing nutjob named Alan Craig. He's determined that the threat of wider acceptance of same-sex marriage as a sign of fascism. Th ...

Honor Killing was totally justified says shitty father

Every so often, I hear someone claim that honor killings have nothing to do with Islam. While it's true that the practice is actually older than the religion (it is, after all, the "new kid on the block" compared to the other two Abrahamic Religions), it seems as though this barbaric ritual has found fertile ground in this religion. While the practice has its roots in much older Arab patriarchal societies t ...
