South Park creators threatened over depiction of Mohammed

There are few certainties in life, but you can always count on: 1) death is inevitable, 2) you will always have to pay taxes, and 3) Muslims will always flip the fuck out if you depict their prophet, no matter how innocent it is. Case in point: Matt Stone and Trey Parker are again the subject of controversy for their 200th episode, which featured Mohammed in a Bear suit to hide his identity. As you might ha ...

Christ-like Cruisin’

I generally dislike most hip-hop and R&B (except for my man Greydon Square), but this has to be the worst Christian music I've heard in a long while. Like most Jesus-junk, this testament to terrible is a reminder of the general skill level of believing musicians. Feel like making money writing music but lack the raw talent to make it big? Try Christian music instead! No one will tire of your off-key poo ...

Bill Donohue blames parents for priestly abuse

Oh Bill, will you ever stop being such an ignorant piece of crap? Here he is blaming the families of raped children for failing to "report" the abuses to the authorities. Well, in case he forgot, it's not easy to stand up to the Church when you're a believer, and the children who suffered those abuses were also told to keep their mouths shut. You wouldn't want to actually blame the rapists themselves, or ev ...

NZ Christians won’t allow woman the right to end her own life

When health care reform was first proposed in the United States, one of the talking points raised by conservative idiots trying to scare the general public was the dreaded "death panels", a supposed government entity that would be "whacking" old people willy-nilly. Rational minded policy makers failed to dissuade the public (who were spoon-fed this nonsense by right wing talking heads) that this threat was ...

Girl mutilated and left for dead for “shaming” family

I sometimes get depressed writing about all of the horrible atrocities committed in the name of religion. Once in a while I'm tempted not to post anything entirely, simply to avoid having to languish in the anger and resentment I feel towards superstitious belief. If you feel like having a good day, then avoid this story altogether; a young woman named Bibi Aisha in Afghanistan had her ears and nose chopped ...

Abuse is not an opportunity for redemption

The aspect I find the most disturbing of the Catholic faith (and there are many things, let me assure you) is their singular obsession with sin. Since Jesus is supposedly commissioned with forgiving us and, in ritual consumption of his flesh and blood, absorb these supposed sins, it's a cottage industry of suffering and redemption. Their obsession with salvation is like a giant set of blinders that makes ev ...

Mississippi school cancels prom over lesbian fears

Mississippi isn't exactly known for its open-mindedness and progressiveness; it was, after all, the second state to secede from the Union in 1861. It also had the distinction at the time of actually having more black slaves than white citizens (55% of the population was in chains back then). There's a surprisingly large gay population in Mississippi, something that's not common knowledge if you're from arou ...

Family sees Jesus in Marmite lid

It's not enough we have to put up with the fact that Marmite (also known as Vegemite) exists; we now have to deal with some of its fans thinking the face of Jesus has appeared on one of its lid. Look, if there is a god and he's trying to communicate with you, do you really think he's going to pop up in what is arguably the most disgusting substance known to man? I know I've got a lot of Aussie and British f ...

America: land of the free, unless you’re preggers

A few days ago, Carisa and I recorded a podcast about a rather disturbing law being proposed in Utah that would make "recklessness" during pregnancy a criminal offense, with a possibility of life imprisonment for feticide. Imagine my surprise to find these kinds of laws actually exist in 35 different states in the US. Recently, a woman named Christine Taylor was arrested in Iowa for falling down a flight of ...

Furious ignorance

White people seem to be pretty goddamn scared of black people in other countries, especially those with strange ancient rituals. They assume voodoo and other religious practices are simply the work of demons. It's quite alien to them that their own religious rituals might seem pretty gruesome and savage to others; communion, for instance, is supposed to be the literal consumption of the body and flesh of th ...
