TV Channel cleared of blasphemy charges

If you're like me, you might be wondering what it takes to get arrested on blasphemy charges in the UK (I have a vested interest in this question, after all). Well, not a hell of a lot as it turns out. Last November, Rowan Atkinson (of Mr. Bean fame) did a fairly innocuous sketch on ITV for the Prince of Wales' 60th Birthday. His act involved dressing as a vicar and making a few milk-toast jokes about Jesus ...

Gay marriage: a sign of End times

Oh crazy bigoted religious people...I'm not sure they know what they want, sometimes. Take this clown, Pastor Scott Lively. Last year he came under fire for publishing a book called "The Pink Swastika", where he claimed Nazi Germany was being run by homofascists (his word). He was laying low for a little while, but now he's back to blaming gays for everything. This time, he believes they will bring about th ...

Idaho creationists want their own monument to ignorance

Hey Idaho, were you feeling left out of this whole evolution-creation "debate"? Are you tired of scientists telling you that the earth is 4.5 billion years old instead of only 6000? Well, then you should donate every spare dollar you have to the Northwest Science Museum. Although they have yet to even raise enough money for their pathetic displays, it certainly hasn't affected their enthusiasm for this proj ...

IHOP calls Oprah Winfrey the Anti-Christ

Here's what's fucking scary about believers: some of them take it so seriously that concerns over their own well-being is secondary. For true believers, a tiny bunk-bed, barely enough food to subsist, and countless hours spent trying to recruit new zombies isn't a chore; it's a calling, baby! It is how a pathetically small church, with the hilarious acronym of IHOP (International House of Prayer, not Pancak ...

The Dutch say no to kosher

It's weird how the word kosher, which typically means "proper" or "legitimate", has become such an important part of our vernacular. It's especially weird that the concept of kosher is really a series of arbitrary rules that make little to no sense. For instance, according to Leviticus, animals that have cloved hooves and chew cud are clean, but animals that have only one of these qualities are not. Jews al ...

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 ...

What’s going on this week

Hi Gang, You might have noticed that posting this week is a little light. That's because I'm helping Carisa with her Prop and Circus Arts festival called "Light and Motion". The event is this Saturday, so until it's over, we'll be posting sporadically for a little while. For those of you in the Calgary area, if you have any friends that want to learn fire breathing, poi spinning, or the business of show biz ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 136 1/2

This week we have an extra long show (clocking in at over 2 hours) to make up for the fact that this week I'll be taking a bit of a break as Carisa and I put the finishing touches on Light and Motion, Western Canada's Prop and Circus Arts Festival. I'll be doing the catering at the event, so posting and shows will be a little light this week. My special guest this week is Chris Tenz, who helped to score the ...

William Lane Craig tries to defend Biblical genocides

A few weeks ago I posted a video of a debate between Sam Harris and William Lane Craig. The video made it clear that Craig is no dummy, despite believing in absurdities. He's been particularly busy recently defending the faith, and one of his latest articles tries to justify the genocide and infanticide in the Bible. It's pretty messed up, actually: According to the Pentateuch (the first five books of the O ...

Suicide Bombings are not political in nature

In a large Suffi shrine in Southern Pakistan, two young men with explosives strapped on their backs navigate nervously through a packed crowd. They are looking for an ideal place to murder as many of their fellow human beings as possible. The plan is surprisingly evil: the second boy is there to detonate himself the moment help arrives to care for the victims of the first attack. As chance would have it, Um ...
