Tell Obama to stop federally funded discrimination

I'm normally not a very big fan of online petitions, but for once I'll make an exception. The Secular Coalition of America is trying to put pressure on the Obama Administration to stop religious organizations receiving federal funding from hiring based solely on religious belief. This was one of Obama's campaign promises made in 2008 that has yet to be fulfilled, so please take a few minutes and fill the da ...

Glenn Beck blames gang violence on atheism, and Obama

Here Glenn decides random and isolated acts of violence have, as their root cause, a secular leaning. In the video a young man is tragically beaten and killed. In Beck's eyes, he sees too few tears in the eyes of witnesses, something he blames on the fact young people are less religious than they used to be. Even Beck admits he has no idea what's happening in this video, but it certainly doesn't stop him fr ...

Preachers continue to pray for Obama’s death

I find it strange that Christians believe their religion gives them moral superiority over others. In their deluded minds, they believe the Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ are the foundations of our modern (ethical) society. Never mind the fact the same book was used to justify all kinds of atrocities, from genocides to slavery; that was ages ago! Those people weren't real Christians, and there's no ...

Steve Anderson wants Obama to die like Ted Kennedy

Looks like Anderson is facing a lot of flack for his comments that he hoped Obama would die, and now he's decided to clarify that he prays for brain cancer (like Ted Kennedy) rather than any individual within his own church to take matters into their own hands. Yeah, you're a real saint, Steve. (via Unreasonable Faith) ...

Priest wants you to repent for voting Obama

This isn't the first time we've heard of religious figures using their influence to promote their political agenda, but it certainly is unique that Father Newman asked his parishioners to repent if they voted for Obama. He's been able to get away with this by citing Obama's pro-choice policy as the reason for his discontent. It's a divisive thing to do, and I hope the people of Greenville, South Carolina ki ...

Obama defends the Constitution

There's still a bit of hope that not every American politician has lost sight of the importance of their founding document, the Constitution. Barack Obama went on the offensive, criticizing the GOP for a comment Sarah Palin made about him in a speech: "Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights." Obama stated that habeus ...

Obama talks about our god: science

As ripe and low hanging a fruit as it would be to pick, I'm trying to stay away from a few topics on this blog: people killing over religion abroad, and ignorant politicians believing in ignorant things. These two topics are so overdone you can't really look at a news site without reading about it, so I'll leave it alone. Yes, I'm aware Sarah Palin is the atheist equivalent of the anti-christ (well not real ...

FFRF sues IRS for failing to enforce tax-exempt rules for religion

Now that the election is over and President Obama no longer has to be afraid of Evangelicals bent on his destruction, it's time to put aside petty politics and enforce the law in regards to religious institutions and their supposed neutrality when it comes to politics. We all know countless religious organizations have been violating the rules of their tax-exempt status, which stipulates pastors are not all ...

The Internet forgets nothing, and sometimes that sucks

I'm all for expressing one's opinion (I wouldn't be doing this web shit if I didn't), but I feel it's my duty to remind young people that the Internet never forgets, and it has a tendency to shame your ass whenever you say something stupid. Do you honestly think the opinions you express as a teenager will carry on to adulthood? I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm kind of glad the Internet and its am ...

Help strip politically bent religious institutions of their tax exempt status

Remember a few weeks back when over 1000 preachers openly defied the IRS and began politically endorsing Mitt Romney? Well, it certainly wasn't the first time these guys broke the law, and it certainly won't be the last. This stunt was in an effort to repeal a law that until now, the IRS has refused to enforce. Gutsy, this was not. "Pulpit Freedom Sunday" has been staged annually since 2008 by a group calle ...
