Miss California’s church thinks homosexuals are child molesters

Some of you may wonder why I talk about gay rights on a site about atheism. You might also wonder why many atheist bloggers also defend the right for gays to marry. Perhaps some of you think they are unrelated issues. However, there is no denying the fact the reason gays are not treated as true members of society is because of religious intolerance which seeks to marginalize this group. I personally have a ...

More books on how atheists are ‘ignorant’

Normally I don't pay much attention to those who ceaselessly attack Dawkins and Hitchens, mostly because although I respect and enjoy their books, they are not the definitive works on the subject of atheism. Yes, both The God Delusion and God is Not Great make powerful cases against believing in God, but to say these two tomes somehow embody all of the principles of atheism would be a lie, one that Terry Ea ...

Pharmacists sue for right to deny medication

There's a disturbing new trend in the US. Pharmacists are attempting to prevent the sale of the morning after pill because of their belief life begins at conception. In Washington state, the government has taken the position it is illegal to deny any care based on religious convictions, due to the simple fact that their profession is not subject to theocratic moralization. This hasn't pleased everyone, and ...

Does loving dogs make you a genocidal monster?

Ok, that may sound like a stupid question, but let me refer you to the picture above. Hitler loved his dog, and he was responsible for the Holocaust. Surely, according to this logic, I've made a powerful case against owning canines. If you think I've gone insane, rest assured I'm only trying to prove a point. There's an article on Proud Atheist that tries to debunk the claim Christians make about Hitler's p ...

Is it time for atheists to call it quits?

I'm still amazed there are atheists out there who think the 'battle' is over. Although it may be true that close to 20% of the American population can effectively be called 'non-religious', this hasn't significantly changed how God fearing people see atheists. It would be nice to be able to live peacefully with one another without fear of persecution, bigotry, or hatred. Sadly, we do not yet live in a world ...

Hulu pulls Family Guy atheist episode

I don't quite know what's going on, but it looks as though the episode has gone missing. The site claims there are copyright issues, and yet every single other episode is available. It seems highly suspect to me that the only one to disappear is the broadcast dealing with atheism... ...

The Godfather Dilemma

I don't have very many religious friends, so I haven't often been put in a position where my beliefs were really challenged. I received an email from a friend recently concerning a very interesting dilemma he's facing (I'm including most of the letter intact since James is an excellent writer): [T]here's something atheism-related that I'd be interested to get your input on. In fact, if you feel it's a topic ...

The Good Atheist 047

In this week's episode, we talk about the latest Family Guy episode dealing with atheism, and how lucky we are to live in a place where we are not prosecuted or judged for being the non believers we are. Also on the show is the JREF's YouTube account being taken down. It's 28 minutes of TGA goodness. ...

Atheist Pride Day

I received an invite on Facebook to join Atheist Pride Day, which is just another version of the 'Out Campaign' for atheism, and it includes the big scarlet 'A' that Richard Dawkins has popularized. I'm fine with the idea of showing pride in atheism, but I'm not really down with how this particular campaign is being handled. I guess I hate the idea of an image or symbol. From a design point of view, I find ...
