Shut up, you big meany faces!

Here's another "hey, atheists are being mean and should stop" article from someone clearly annoyed that people on Reddit have less than kind things to say about religion. If you want to find out why I call these guys Reddit Atheists, take a brief dip into the atheism subreddit. It is a place entirely defined by bitter, faux-enlightened young people sharing “thought-provoking” images about the horrific evils ...

Ray Comfort is hilarious

Someone on r/atheism found this Ray Comfort flyer entitled Scientific Facts in the Bible: 100 Reasons to believe the Bible is Supernatural in Origin. The ironic title demonstrates the true stupidity at work here. Check out these awesome excerpts: Try to think of any explosion that has produced order. Does a terrorist bomb create harmony? Big bangs cause chaos. How could a big bang produce a rose, apple tree ...

Religious People keep getting atheism wrong

Every day, another religious mouthbreather with a keyboard attempts to find a way to argue the atheistic worldview is antithetical to the welfare of society. It's so painful to read these articles specifically because at no time do any of these morons ever come close to making a valid point. The latest frustration to hit my peepers is an article entitled "Atheists Get Religion All Wrong". This unidentified ...

Article claims rationality is overrated

I hate it when our commitment to rationality is attacked for no other reason than religiously motivated people feeling slighted from the accusation that rational thought is abrasive to belief. In light of a recent study that found rational thinking diminishes religious faith (at least temporarily), a few mouth-breathers are attempting to argue being rational isn't all it's cracked up to be. It’s misleading ...

Parents acquitted of torturing daughter thanks to “religious freedom”

In our brave new world, multicultural and diverse as it is, our moral sensibilities can often be rattled by the brutishness and ignorance of many cultural traditions that make their way to our shores. As some of you reading this blog may remember, my heart bleeds for the way African children are tortured due to a dangerous mix of new and ancient religious superstitions. The Christian crusade to possess Afri ...

Teen Exorcists scare the crap out of me

I'm trying to identify what part of this video terrifies me the most. Is it the fact that these girls were performing dangerous exorcisms in Africa, a nation plagued by deadly superstitions? Is it the creepy, prideful grins on their faces as they enthusiastically nod to each other, casually describing doing one of these messed up seances to one of their non-believing friends? Is it their certainty that a ye ...

If you happen to be gay and a Catholic living in Connecticut, that word is about to take on a disturbing new meaning: The Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut, this month is beginning a program that ministers to gays and lesbians...The Vatican-endorsed program, called Courage...was started in 1980 by the late Terence Cardinal Coo ...

Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse in Africa

I've written countless articles denouncing these Christian preachers in Nigeria for accusing innocent children of witchcraft; it's one of the few times I've taken a subject so seriously. It isn't only because of the images of these poor children -victims of a toxic mix of ancient superstition and organized religion - are seared into my brain. No, my passion comes mainly from the fact that this issue has bee ...

Rick Perry isn’t afraid of his own ignorance

I don't think that faith is a sign of weakness: I think it's a sign of an uninformed mind, reliant on ancient superstitions to give them a false sense of security and strength. Does it surprise me that people would believe? No. Ignorance is perfectly natural, incredibly persistent, and seemingly infinite. Those that flaunt this ignorance as a form of power and inspiration is what annoys me the most. Do I wa ...
