Shitty journalist thinks ‘militant atheism’ must be fought

How to spot a poorly written article about atheism. (1) The words 'fundamentalist' or 'militant' are used in the article without any real justification (i.e., do these words have the same meaning for our religious counter-parts, I wonder) (2) 'Atheistic' regimes are blamed for the worst human rights offenses (3) We're told that secularism is an imposition rather than redressing a clear inequity. It's clear ...

Romney attempts to use fear of secularism to gain votes

Oh religious people: you can never be sure if they love religion or secretly despise it. Why else would they resort to calling our free-thought movement "a religion" if not to criticize it? Obviously they recognize the fact that by definition, a religion is a creepy organization intent on pushing through their wacky agenda. While I agree this is a definite aspect of all religion, conflating our lack of beli ...

Gingrich tells evangelicals “we need to defend ourselves”

In a continued effort to try and still be relevant, Newt Gingrich recently spoke to a modestly sized crowd in Cumming, Georgia assuring them of his (false) piety, and warning his dwindling support base that it was time for evangelicals to "defend themselves": "The other side will fight back and they will fight back on two fronts. You will have radical Islamists who want to kill us and you will have seculari ...

Muslims in Afghanistan going nuts over Koran Burning

Remember last year when 24 people died because a US pastor made a public display of burning the Koran? Despite President Obama begging the guy not to do it, Pastor Terry Jones held a mock trial for the book, found it guilty of 3 crimes against humanity and set it on fire. Huge protests errupted in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, and like every crazy protest in these countries, a bunch of people got killed. S ...

Play soccer: go straight to Hell

Come on...There's no fucking way this guy is for real. I refuse to believe that any human being can be so shockingly ignorant. According to his logic, the ungodliness of socialism (which starts with an "S") is spread via soccer, which does not allow you to use all of your God-given limbs. And of course, we all know what other sinister words begin with the letter "S": sodomy, satanism, and worst of all, supe ...

God Said

From the songwriter's own words: I wrote a song called GOD SAID after watching Pat Robertson declare that the earthquake in Haiti was because of a curse from God. After hearing A man named Rev Wiley say that he was praying for President Obama's death during the election (the prayer didn't work BTW). After hearing people fiddle around with the idea of a curse on Japan after their recent disaster. After heari ...

Sam Harris on his new book, The Moral Landscape

Sam is continuing his book tour, and as is typical with this kind of affair, he's drawn a of number criticisms for his strong stance against religious beliefs. While his critics lament the fact that he is so antithetical to religious beliefs, they never seem to be able to prove him wrong. Instead, he's portrayed as just another kind of fundamentalist by the mainstream media. The latest "article written like ...

Conservapedia proves Atheists are Fatty Fattersons

Oh Conservapedia, you're the gift that keeps on giving. We recently donated some money to Wikipedia, the reality-based crowd sourced encyclopedia, so I suppose it's only 'fair and balanced' we give its right wing la-la land equivalent some love too in the form of a post. On its front page next to such fine articles as "Is Barack Hussein Obama a president, or is he a dictator?" and "More than a thousand scie ...

Military Chaplains worry about inability to discriminate

Evangelical chaplains in the military are suffering! They're worried the eventual repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" will jeopardize their ability to openly discriminate against gays and lesbians who might come to them seeking spiritual help. Now while I generally feel homosexuality and religion mix about as well as oil and water, you can't deny the fact statistically, gays are actually more religious than t ...

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 ...
