Seth MacFarlane interviewed by Bill Maher

A bit old, but it turns out I don't ever pay attention to Piers Morgan (can you blame me?), even when he's replaced by someone infinitely cooler like Bill Maher. Here he is talking abut how the Emmys suck, how he's not sure what to think abut Obama (his response is actually pretty fresh), and his upcoming "Cosmos" series that I'm still on the fence about (it's a tough sell, trying to match the awesomeness o ...

Maybe Pat was talking to Satan

I wonder if Pat Robertson remembers this little gem from back in January, when he claimed God told him in advance that Obama was going to lose the election...which he of course did not. If I was him, I'd just pull the same stunt Mohammed did whenever he was caught making a bullshit prediction: just blame it on the devil. He's the go-to guy for all your lame excuses: did you cheat on your wife? The devil mad ...

Maryland gets Marriage Equality

I know the big news story today is President Obama being re-elected, but I hope this bit of news doesn't get buried under all the brouhaha: it seems as though the tiny state of Maryland has legalized same-sex marriage by approving "Question 6" on the ballot. Now, before you celebrate this victory, you should know a few important details: Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian ...

Go Vote, or Else…

OK folks, this is it: after months and months of the presidential election campaign eating up valuable news real-estate, it's now time for you to exercise the limited choice you have and cast your insignificant voice into the choir of madness that is the electoral process. As you may well know, over 80% of my audience is from the US, which means I have a huge stake in this election. Already over the past 3 ...

Contraception is a gateway drug to abortion!

Catholics are hilarious. It's been 60 years since the invention of the pill, and these dinosaurs are still trying to argue that it's the most evil invention since the guillotine. Abortion and birth control are two sides of the same coin. The currency of which is the prevention and/or the destruction of nascent human life. While some forms of contraception, such as the condom or the diaphragm, are not themse ...

Churches double down on political involvement

As election day approaches, religious institutions are taking advantage of the uncertainty and religious resurgence to attempt to undo a law prohibiting them from participating in the political process. Now, we all know the IRS is a toothless organization when it comes to this issue: only once have they ever bothered to enforce this law, despite blatant violations (such as when the Mormon Church spent 30 mi ...

All opposed to religious influence in politics, say “Nay” and be ignored

It doesn't matter how loud you scream in your opposition to religion being intertwined with politics. The decision has already been made. For those of you who thought perhaps the Democratic party had finally woken up to the idea that us 'nones' are an important enough minority that our desire to have a true separation of church and state would influence their policy. We were tantalized with the possibility ...

Goatman wants you to have lots of babies

So what do you do if your country is slowly accepting marriage equality, passing health care laws that disallow insurance companies from denying coverage, and even threatening to tax the rich? Why, you segregate yourself from society and form your own theocracy, that's what! In case you actually give a shit who this guy is, and why he has such a hideous/hypnotic beard, you should stop by his website, Christ ...

These talking points are so easy, even a 14 year old moron can say them!

The key to spreading a message is to keep it simple, stupid. The reason is simple: most minds are only interested in confirming their pre-existing belief, and if your message requires a lot of introspection or even thinking, it's just not going to make it big. This might be one of the reasons why actually educating someone's position is infinitely more difficult. Brains dislike the hard work of coming to co ...
