Tired Christian claim #2: without God, morality is impossible.

Most of you are probably familiar with this argument. It's inevitable that at some point in the conversation, a genuinely confused Christian may ask you how you can have a definitive moral system without the benefit of a higher power telling you what is right and wrong. As far as many Christians are concerned, the denial of God also means the denial of an absolute system of ethics. I can understand their co ...

Family Research Council’s video on Tiller, shortly before his murder

Here's a video made only a month before Tiller's murder, identifying him again to the public as a menace, and painting him as some sort of monstrous criminal. This is the kind of campaign that gets men like Tiller killed. If you still don't think there is any connection between the right wing propaganda that's out there and the murder of abortion doctors, then please visit this link and check out a document ...

Abortion doctor gunned down in church

Anti-abortionists scare me. Sure, most of them are fairly harmless, but their zeal and conviction often invite violent individuals into their ranks. It's inevitable that certain people, who feel their actions are justified by their God, will commit violent acts against doctors and nurses who provide this medical service. Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed today during church, and although the details of ...

Coming out of the closet not easy for Black atheists

I've read enough articles, editorials and op-ed pieces to realize, at least superficially, that being both and atheist and black is not an easy thing. African Americans have a long history of relying on the church for support. Abandoning religion often means abandoning the culture. As the secular movement gains momentum, however, more and more in the community are speaking out about this, especially in the ...

Conservative talk show host gets waterboarded

Perhaps one of the most disturbing aspects of the war on terror is the fact the United States has admitted it uses waterboarding as an interrogation technique. While all the experts agree that the practice is indeed torture, it hasn't prevented conservative mouthpieces from declaring 'throwing a little water' on someone's face is a justifiable practice to prevent terrorism. You may recall Khalid Sheikh Moha ...

Shitty priest says he didn’t know child abuse was illegal

Did you ever try to use the old "I didn't know it was a illegal" defense when caught breaking the law? I've never been arrested, but I assume it's pretty normal some people would try and use this lame excuse in order to avoid doing jail time. There are, however, certain times when this type of defense will do more harm than good. Case in point: retired Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland and his statements that ...

Confused article accuses atheists of being boring and whiny

It seems like every time I read an article about atheism from an obviously religiously motivated individual, I'm always looking for the punchline. We've been accused of everything from spoiling everyone's good time to being overly dramatic, and now in this LA Times article, of being terribly boring. Charlotte Allen is the writer of the book: The Human Christ: The Search for the Historical Jesus. The title s ...

Cheezus Christ!

I'm sick and tired of people making toast and suddenly declaring their blurry burn marks are the divine image of Jesus. Here's one woman claiming her cheese toast has the profile of the King of Kings. It looks a lot like Eddie the Head from Iron Maiden to me, but what do I know? I'm just a silly naked ape just trying to make my way in a confusing world. I'd just eat the damn thing and go about my business, ...

Jesus and his blood money

According to this guy, everyone owes Jesus a shitload of money. He did 'buy us back' from the Devil after all...Also, did anyone get creeped out when the kid yells back "he shed his blood for us!" when asked the kind of currency necessary for such a transaction. What kind of psycho thinks that sadistic bullshit is appropriate for kids? ...
