A Ray of Hope, perhaps?

I won't lie to you folks: things have been tough. My financial struggles notwithstanding, site troubles had conspired to sap the last ounce of enthusiasm I had about running this crazy operation. With the indignity of moving back in with my Mom (with a fiancée in tow, no less), the humiliation seemed complete. There's nothing like hitting rock bottom to learn that you're a lot tougher than you expected. Onc ...

Worst Dating Service Ever

You're a gay man, unfortunate enough to be born in the insane cult of Orthodox Judaism. One day, you make the mistake of actually telling someone like Rabbi Arele Harel about your sexual orientation and your desire to start a family. His solution, as you might have guessed, is just about the worst idea anyone can have: He sets you up with a lesbian stuck in the same cult: Potential candidates email Harel, w ...

Orthodox Jews sentence dog to stoning

I learned two things today. The first is that some Orthodox Jews believe in reincarnation. The second is these same Jews actually believe these reincarnated souls can seek revenge on their previous tormentors. That's what a group of Rabbis thought when a stray dog entered their religious "court" and refused to leave. They were convinced it must have been the re-birthed soul of one of their "secular" enemies ...

Hitchens debates some guy no one cares about

(here's the YouTube link for those of you on mobiles) You might recall Rabbi Boteach as the annoying idiot who doesn't do more than just make statements without any evidence. In fact, his first turn at the microphone is spent simply insulting Hitchens and his book, and he doesn't say one thing of value. The most hilarious/tragically ironic part of the video occurs about 46 minutes in when he accuses Hitchen ...

Is being Jewish about “race” or religion?

I was reading an old article on BBCnews about a Jewish school that was refusing admission to students who had no blood relation to Judaism. The school was trying to defend their stance, arguing that this was a matter of religion, not race. I don't buy that bullshit for one second. Consider this: a few months ago, the Israeli government created a series of ads warning Jews not to marry non-Jews after a study ...

Christians complain that media gives too much attention to atheism

Let's imagine for a moment this news story was actually about Judaism and not atheism. How offensive would it be to hear two Christians worried that the media was giving the religion too much positive spin. Not only would they be lambasted as bigots, they would have never even been allowed to run the story. I'll admit that the coverage of atheism has been pretty strong recently, and I can tell that Christia ...

Orson Scott Card is poorly informed

Personally I'm pretty sick and tired of religious individuals commenting on atheism when they have absolutely no idea what it means to dis-believe in God. Let me assure you, religious readers, I am not an atheist because of an abusive or absent father (an idea so insultingly wrong I usually choose not to dignify it with an answer). I am also not an atheist because of some secret hatred or spurning from your ...

It’s just a movie, dog

Here's a bullshit documentary detailing how Harry Potter is a Zionist piece of propaganda. What I find hilarious is these 'historians' seem to forget their own religion is basically a plagiarism of both Judaism and Christianity. Also, I've met plenty of Jews, and not one of them was interested in world domination. Religious fundamentalists (on both the Islamic and Christian side), however, have no problem i ...

Christian apologists make me sick

Question: The Old Testament quite clearly states the Israelites were ordered by God to kill the Canaanites. Every man, woman, and child was to be slaughtered. If this story is historical truth, and God really did issue this command, is he not then admonishing genocide? This is the very same question asked of Dr. Willian Craig, a research professor of Philosophy and the proud owner of ReasonableFaith.org. If ...

Is atheism a religion?

As a writer, the appeal of discussing atheism stems largely from the fact that although its definition may be simple, the philosophies surrounding it are not. There are so many different responses to atheism that some have begun to call it a religion. But is this true? Is atheism a religion, and if not, does it emulate any of the elements of it? As I will show in this article, the answer to that question no ...
