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.

On the controversy of atheism

In my own life, I have always sought out issues that are controversial. It's no secret I'm a highly opinionated individual; I've chosen to take a stand on issues I consider to be of fundamental importance. I know there are many out there, even some of my fans, who consider the issue of a person's religion to be a private affair. One fan accused me of being insensitive by 'outing' my sister on my radio show, ...

Bart Simpson is promoting Scientology

When I was a kid, the show everyone was talking about on Monday morning was the Simpsons. There was no doubt in my mind it was my generation's quintessential program, and it practically defined our sense of humor. My friends and I would often quote lines from episodes if the situation was appropriate. Of course, the show isn't what it used to be. The characters are now stale; the writers have lost their fun ...

Since starting this section of the website, I've many great stories, but none were as intense as Krista's. Her early life exemplified the dangers of belief, especially when combined with mindless superstition, ritual, and dogmatic platitudes. Here is her story: I decided to write this in order to draw attention to the damage that religion can cause to children. At the same time I want to say that my parents ...

The Santa experiment

I don't have any children, although like any young adult, I've often contemplated how I would raise my own. I never particularly liked Christmas, and I always felt it unwise and deceitful to teach my children the rather silly notion of Santa Claus. The big bearded guy stands for many of the values I do not believe in; mainly the capitalist, consumerist attitude I feel is quickly destroying our planet. Recen ...

Sex scandal at Creation Museum

So, the Creation Museum, still so new to the world, is already getting embroiled in a sex scandal. An actor who appeared as Adam in a video the museum uses to help tell their story of how the universe was created also has or had a little risqué website on the side. The site shows some rather graphic photos and promotes a 'free love' attitude. The horror. This, of course, has gotten the officials at the Muse ...

The miracle sex changing bird

I was both amused and stunned at the news this morning of a hen spontaneously changing gender into a rooster in Calcutta, India. The owner claims the chicken had been laying eggs but for a few days ago, when it suddenly stopped and began displaying male characteristics. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science wrote a report in 2000 about how such changes can sometimes occur in n ...
