Catholic Church health care stance is schizophrenic

Here's a great article about the Catholic Chruch and their attempt to force the Obama administration to exclude any abortion provision to their reform. Despite the fact the Church has been asking the government for decades to provide citizens with Universal health care (I'll give them props for that one), they are now threatening to withdraw their support because women who have been sexually assaulted or wh ...

Steven Anderson shows you “how it’s done”

You might remember this guy from his violent and hateful rhetoric about gays and his sermon calling on people to pray for President Obama to die and burn in hell. Here he is demonstrating in a video how one is to go about preaching the word of God. You may of course note that he seems to be preaching to the converted, but that's besides the point. The challenge here, ladies and gentlemen, is to see how many ...

Hey, this jackass again!

Ok, I don't want to make this site all about this (probably) closeted homosexual, but Steven L. Anderson has been on a bit of a tear recently. Now he's calling on people to pray for Obama to die and go to hell. These guys are so loving! Doesn't it just make you want to become a Baptist yourself? If you join now, you too can enjoy the exciting world of needlessly hating your fellow human beings for no good r ...

Tell it like it is, Barack

I've been very hard on President Obama, partially because the office itself requires all kinds of bullshit religious tap dancing meant to appease the religious right. Still, it's nice to know this President doesn't think he's being instructed by God, but rather by the mandate handed to him by the people of the United States of America. Is this what having someone smart in office feels like? ...

The real dangers of racism, bigotry and hatred

I've been a little obsessed with the media lately. I really can't help myself in the light of Dr. George Tiller's death. It was only after his murder I had an opportunity to see the full scope of the religious right's campaign against him. The carefully worded press releases all publicly condemn the act, but it's no surprise the majority of them are in fact quite pleased at Tiller's death. I've begun to rea ...

Bachmann thinks she has it figured out

Bachmann is your classic right wing idiot who is more concerned about God than about the general health of the nation. Here she is, lamenting the fact President Obama is declaring America is not a Christian nation. It doesn't seem to matter to her he's right; although a majority of Americans are Christian, the country itself was designed not to give any religion special favor. It's why the very first Amendm ...

Texas teacher fired for atheism and liberal attitudes

I know I have fans who live in Texas, so I don't want any of you to be too offended when I say it's a seriously messed up place. The latest bit of bad news comes from Brookland, where a teacher by the name of Richard Mullens was fired because parents and other faculty members thought he was an atheist, and way too 'liberal'. There's no indication he's an atheist, and Mr. Mullens has chosen to keep his relig ...

How the US really feels about gays

Signing a UN declaration is roughly as binding as your New Years resolution. Still, they are symbolic representations, somewhat like a lofty resolution, indicating an important issue which needs attention. It's why I'm appalled the US failed to sign a UN declaration aiming at decriminalizing homosexuality. Of course, I'm not entirely surprised, since the government seems to have no regard for civil libertie ...
