Friendly Atheist under attack

Ok, the title of my article is a little inflamatory, but how else can you describe a consentrated effort on the part of the Illinois Family Institute to get Friendly Atheist Hemant Mehta fired from his job as a high school math teacher? Sounds like an attack to me. IFL director Laurie Higgins is on a crusade to get the school faculty to punish him for writing an atheist blog on his free time, even though it ...

Bus drivers suspended after refusing to drive bus with atheist ad

With atheist bus ads popping up all over the US, there's bound to be some conflict a-brewin' (they are kind of intended for that purpose, anyway). The latest controversy comes from Des Moines, Iowa, where bus driver Angela Shiel was suspended after she refused to drive a bus with an atheist banner on the side. She might get fired over this, since the Des Moines Area Regional Transport (or DART) has a policy ...

Tired Christian Claim #4: Atheists are mean and offensive

In Grand Valley Texas, a group of atheists have been trying unsuccesfully to buy billboard space from a company called Lamar Advertising. It seems the owner finds the ads to be offensive and inappropriate, this despite the fact he's recently allowed the escort service "MyPlayBunny.com" to broadcast their sleazy (and sexy) service. The accusation that atheism is insulting and offensive is getting a lot more ...

Hitchens talks about North Korea not being an atheist state

Check out minute 5:10 when Hitchens starts talking about how North Korea is anything but an atheist state. Religious people are often confused by this: they believe if no official religion is endorsed by the state that it necessarily means the country is itself atheistic. What they fail to realize is it is the State that is itself a religion. Kim Jong Il has claimed that his birth was foretold by a swallow, ...

This is what passes for “fair and balanced” at Fox News

Here Steve Doocy shows us precisely why Fox News is such a bankrupt news organization. According to this moron, putting the word God in your ad signifies that you must believe in him. By that logic, putting up a sign that says there is no Santa somehow secretly acknowledges the existence of the jolly bearded one. Fox's new slant on the whole controversy of atheism is to constantly remind us that people are ...

Mother Teresa’s spiritual advisor accused of molesting boys

I think most of you know I'm not a big fan of Mother Teresa. I think she gives atheism a bad name, but that's a whole other story altogether. I found her corrupt, nasty, and evil just like the institution she represents. What a surprise to find someone close to her was also a steaming pile of shit: Father Donald Maguire, a frequent spiritual advisor to Mother Teresa is facing charges of child molestation. A ...

Mail!

I received this email from friend of the site, April, who informed me of this brand of atheist centered clothing: Hi Jacob, A friend recently forwarded me this link [www.thearrogantatheist.com], I thought it might be loosely related to your recent topics of more atheists being open in public about their lack of belief. I'm not too keen on the use of the word "arrogant," but if you are going to be smarmy why ...

Who watches over us?

Lea Guilbeaut had a life many would envy. She had a good job, and by all accounts her marriage to her husband, Hani Beitinjaneh, was a very happy one. On her birthday the couple decided to go eat sushi at a small trendy restaurant on Peel St. They chose their own table outside so they could enjoy the sun (since it had been such a rainy summer). Meanwhile, a huge slab of concrete 18 floors above at the Marri ...

I love Kiwis!

Apart from the amazing fact there are more women than men in this tiny country (this fact in itself should encourage you to visit, guys), the country's atheist population is surging. According to this article, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, John Key, is essentially non-religious (his predecessor was also agnostic), and his whole country is becoming more and more secular. It's estimated if the current ir ...
