No sympathy for murdered Pop Star

In most Muslim countries, it's impossibly hard to be a woman. For starters, men have all the power, relegating women to the role of caretakers and not much else. Men also absolve themselves from any crime or misdeeds; if a husband beats his wife, she is to blame for not having been servile enough or not having been mindful enough of his moods. It's so nutty that when a rich Egyptian real estate tycoon paid ...

Being Black and Gay sucks

If you're black and gay, you have my pity. I can't imagine a minority group so vehemently opposed to homosexuality. They often make the sermons of white Alabama preachers seem almost tame by comparison. It's no secret as a group, African Americans are more religiously conservative than the average American. Since many believe in the literal word of God, it doesn't leave a lot of room for tolerance and under ...

Pakistan authorities want Facebook founder’s head on a platter

You may not like some of the things Mark Zuckerberg has done to Facebook (especially their fucked up lack of privacy), but I doubt most of you are seriously considering hurting this dude. Then again, you aren't the government of Pakistan, which seems intent on trying to prosecute the goofy CEO for his involvement in hosting the "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day" Facebook page. It's become pretty clear the West's ...

JFK on the separation of church and state

It's sad Jack's words have since fallen on deaf ears as Christians work tirelessly to erode the wall separating church and state. This one act is the reason why your own country has enjoyed such unprecedented freedom (which isn't what it used to be, honestly). All religions seek power and control, and are therefore antithetical to freedom, and great men like John F. Kennedy recognized this fact not so long ...

Surprise: Christians feel persecuted

The Christian Anti-Defamation League has just released their "Top 10 Instances of Christian Bashing" for 2009, and as you'll see, most of them are centered around homosexuality: 10. Pro-life Pastor Reverend Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA was jailed for exercising peaceful, pro-life speech. 9. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois. 8. HBO's program "Curb Your Enthusi ...

Cartoonist attacked by Muslim fundamentalist

You can't start the New Year without a religious nutjob trying to murder someone they perceive as a threat to their way of life. Remember back in 2005 when the Muslim world was freaking out about a bunch of stupid cartoons depicting Muhammad as a terrorist? Turns out Kurt Westergaard, arguably the most high profile cartoonist involved, was attacked in his home yesterday by a radical Somali Muslim. Kurt is t ...

I gets mail!

I received this email, and I wanted to share "B"'s story with everyone (he asked that I not include his name, since he works with the boy Scouts and would like to keep his job). This past summer I staffed a Boy Scout summer camp. I just wanted to share some of my experiences.Before every meal shift, since a scout is "reverent," we had a volunteer say a "non-denominational" grace. They usually were just spee ...

Hitchens laments the appeasement of fundamentalists

Here's an article from Christopher Hitchens on Yale University Press and their decision to censor their own book out of fear of Islamic violence. Yale University Press announced last week that it would go ahead with the publication of the book, but it would remove from it the 12 caricatures that originated the controversy. Not content with this, it is also removing other historic illustrations of the likene ...

Nate Phelps on his experience in the Westboro Baptist Church

If you've never heard of the Westboro Baptist Church, they are the guys who picket the funerals of soldiers with placards that say 'God hates Fags' and other hate speech. The patriarch of the family is a man by the name of Fred Phelps, Nate's father. The following is a speech he gave at the American Atheist convention in Atlanta, Georgia. It's some really stirring stuff, so if you have a few minutes, take t ...

Faith Fighter!

Here's a way to kill an afternoon and simultaneously engage in delicious blasphemy: play Faith Fighter, a web based fighting game featuring prophets and gods of different faiths. Your selection includes Jesus, Old Testament God, Ganesha, Buddha and if you pass it at least once, Xenu, the intergalactic tyrant. The game has stirred the usually controversy, with some people saying it should be taken down becau ...
