Bed & breakfast uses God to discriminate against gays

Another day, another case where people are trying to use their religious beliefs as a legal shield for their bigotry: The owners of a B.C. bed and breakfast will argue at a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal hearing in Kelowna on Wednesday that their right to freedom of religion permitted them to turn away a homosexual couple. According to the complaint filed with the tribunal, the gay couple, Shaun Eadie and Brian ...

Facebook kills “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” page

You can't expect a private corporation to care about something as important as free speech, but it's still a disappointment to hear the childish cries of outraged Muslims all over the world was enough for Facebook to kill the "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day" page from the "interwebs". It's equally ironic/tragic the woman responsible for the whole thing also retracted and issued a sincere apology (even going so ...

Malawi gay couple faces harsh jail sentence for getting engaged

I'm still amazed any rational, intelligent person can doubt as to whether or not religion still causes all sorts of harm in this world. I think the problem is few people actually bother to find out what is going on in parts of the world where religious fundamentalism is still prominent. There are countries around the world where the toxic effects of religion are being felt by innocent men and women. The lat ...

Pedophile Nigerian senator justifies himself through Koran

If you're a Muslim and you find the idea of child brides offensive, how do you respond to Senator Yerima's claim since Mohammed married a 9 year old (Aisha), this justifies his recent "marriage" to a 13 year old girl? Muslims believe their prophet led a blameless life, and if the Koran is really supposed to be a guide for how to live one's life, then he isn't wrong in his assertion. This is precisely the pr ...

Noah’s Ark story told right

Can you believe a not inconsiderable percentage of the world's population actually thinks the story of Noah's Ark is a fact about the history of the world? I mean, sure, these are the same idiots who think Jonah spent a few days inside a fish and lived to tell the tale, but even that story is sensible in comparison. Two of every species on a boat? Are you for real? What about everyone else who had a boat? D ...

Lars Vilks attacked by angry Muslims at free speech lecture

Dear Islam, We're sick and tired of your shit. Your followers can't seem to get it through their primitive, 7th century minds the freedom to speak our minds (no matter how offensive it may be) is one of our most treasured rights. It permits anyone to denigrate your precious religion and its prophet if they feel the desire to do so. We don't care if you believe blasphemy is a crime punishable by death: you a ...

Dan Barker on why the “National Day of Prayer” needs to be abolished

I like how the host basically asks: with all the trouble in the world, why do you want to take people's ability to have a special prayer day?". How mature are these morons? Does he really think folks will be banned from doing their useless prayers? All that we want is for the government to be out of the business of promoting religion. That's what this issue is really about. Props to Dan Barker for staying c ...

I’m no kin to the monkey

We're the only species on this planet that continues to deny the truth about our heritage. Maybe we're also the only ones actually capable of doing so, but it still seems pretty fucking childish to deny what is as plain as day: you're a hairless ape, and no amount of kicking and screaming is going to change that fact. Would you rather have been created out of dirt instead? (props to Joe for the find) ...

Muslim man tries to argue that Koran “proves” Earth is flat

Behold, the amazement that is religious dogma: here we have a man who is trying to argue that the Earth is flat, and it rotates around the moon. He believes in these things unquestioningly because his religious tome proclaims it. Any evidence to the contrary must be denied, since according to him, "Anything not indicated in the Koran is false". To be this ignorant, you really have to be a believer. How else ...

Israeli man jailed for defrauding women with “holy semen”

Have you ever lied for sex? Perhaps in a way, we all have to some degree; after all, when you want to sleep with someone you're usually on your best behavior, and you're probably look, smell and dress a lot better than you normally do. And ladies, don't get me started about all the things you do to make yourselves sexier; the push-up bra is just a subtle form of deceit I tells ya! There are those that can s ...
