Violence being blamed on video games again

I'm an avid gamer, and I've often talked about the demonizing of video games in today's society. It seems like every time there's an incident involving some fucked up teenager attacking another, some group comes out of the woodwork and accuses the video game industry of corrupting youth. Today it's in England, which is proposing adding a tax on violent games. The man behind the idea, Richard Taylor, lost hi ...

Crazy picture…

This is all kinds of messed up. This is an image of a suicide bomber going off during a holiday gathering in Sri Lanka. I'm sure the bastard who killed 10 people is up in Heaven enjoying his virgins as we speak... ...

More evil from the Catholic Church

There's always something controversial going on with Catholics. These guys are out of touch with modern life, and as a consequence, they always do something stupid and plain horrible enough to make the news. Today it's the archbishop Don Jose Cardoso Sobrinho who excommunicated the Brazilian doctors who performed an abortion on a 9 year old rape victim. Sobrinho has no concern over the rape itself, since he ...

Religious affiliations are shifting

It's always interesting that perception does not usually reflect reality, specifically when it comes to religion. If you looked only at statistics, it would seem as religion were on a comeback, since studies have shown the average person attends church more often than in any period of American history. However, on the other side of the equation, it would appear that every state in the US has seen some signi ...

Richard Dawkins interview

BBC News has an interesting and in depth interview with Richard Dawkins. I've read almost everything he's written over the years, so I guess that makes me a fan. Personally, I much prefer it when he talks about science than religion, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't always interesting. Here's a highlight: As the observance of religion in our particular country has declined, we've seen the rise of pe ...

Oklahoma Congressman seeks to ban Dawkins from state

If you live in Oklahoma and you're not an idiot, then this piece of news is likely to ruin your day. Representative Todd Thomsen tried to introduce a resolution to ban Richard Dawkins from speaking at the University of Oklahoma. The reason, as you may have guessed, is that Thomsen feels that the Theory of Evolution is offensive to him. THAT the Oklahoma House of Representative strongly opposes the invitatio ...

Stabby daddy

This is from the 'you can't make this shit up' pile: Police said a 58-year-old man stabbed his teenage son after he refused to take off his hat at church earlier in the day. The father and his 19-year-old son got into an argument on Sunday afternoon. That's when police said the father went to a car, got a knife and stabbed his son in the left buttock and fled. The son was taken to University of Maryland Med ...

Atheist superheroes

Here's an interesting site I came across today, which describes in detail the religious affiliation of different superheroes. Most interesting to me is how light the atheist section is. I am glad, however, that Savage Dragon is in there. He's an atheist DESPITE the fact he's actually met God, which is the ballsiest position I've ever seen on the issue of belief. The list is quite impressive, including even ...

Conservatives love porn

You know the stereotype of the political conservative who plays the purity and family values card and then gets caught doing something really dirty? Well, it's not too far from the truth. It seems the most conservative states in America are the biggest consumers of porn. Are they more perverted than liberally minded people? No. But because the tantalizing fruit of hard core pornography is so sweet, it's imp ...
