Exposing the bigotry of religion makes us bullies, apparently

What happens when your privileged place in society begins to erode? Well, like a spoiled child, you relentlessly accuse others of being mean bullies for not letting them have their way. It takes time to become an adult, but expecting religion to mature is unrealistic. Take Matt Barber: He's accusing secularists of being "bullies", and his solution is playground fare: punch them in the mouth, Christians! How ...

77 reasons to support bigotry

The Friendly Atheist has an interesting article written by two fans who recently attended a "Marriage Symposium" organized by the Illinois Family Institute and Patriots United (any time an organization has the words "Family" or "Patriot" in it, you know something racist/homophobic/ultra-conservative is going on). One of the pieces of literature at the event that intrigued me was the pamphlet entitled "77 No ...

More Tea Party bigotry

If you still think the Tea Party is a socially conservative, libertarian movement, then you need to pull your head out of your ass and actually pay attention to the shit they are pulling. The latest "so bigoted you'd think this was the 1950's" move involves Tea Party activists sending robo-calls to warn Texans about their new House Speaker being a Jew. John Cook is a member of the State Republican Executive ...

Bigotry is expensive

Have you ever noticed the religious right always uses the word 'pro' for things they are vehemently opposed to? When they say 'pro-life' for instance, they aren't claiming ALL life is precious; just embryos. I've always joked around how pro-lifers write on both side of their picket signs so after protesting at an abortion clinic, they can head over to the local prison to support capital punishment. I also l ...

The real dangers of racism, bigotry and hatred

I've been a little obsessed with the media lately. I really can't help myself in the light of Dr. George Tiller's death. It was only after his murder I had an opportunity to see the full scope of the religious right's campaign against him. The carefully worded press releases all publicly condemn the act, but it's no surprise the majority of them are in fact quite pleased at Tiller's death. I've begun to rea ...

Lamest Anti-Gay ad ever

It's getting increasingly difficult to find arguments against marriage equality, and as religious groups get more and more desperate, they continue to try to swing everyone's opinion back to their homophobic camp. The latest in this disaster porn is a group called Faith2Action, a typical 'family values' group that tries to hide their bigotry under the guise of their religion. They have a ton of videos about ...

Marco Rubio doesn’t know what a bigot is

Lying is thirsty work, don't you know! The problem with most bigots is they have no idea what being a bigot entails. When you're spoon-fed a bunch of bullshit lies your entire life that one can 'respect' a human being while still denying them the same rights as you, you're bound to be confused when everyone is constantly pointing out that the things you say and do are unacceptable. Man, that must get annoyi ...

Illinois conservatives defeat anti-bullying measure claiming it had a “gay agenda”

In light of homosexuality becoming more accepted in society, there are still those individuals who have a problem with the idea two people of the same sex can love each other. Of the few institutions that still harbor an intense hatred of gays, the most respected is religion, and this has meant the fight for civil rights has been pitted against "religious freedom". This tactic isn't new; Southern Baptists w ...

Father wants to protect child from reality

When you stop placating people and call them out on their bullshit, you're bound to hurt their feelings. While some of us are comfortable with the idea of letting dumb or dangerous ideas thrive under the banner of "tolerance", there are those brave few who cannot stay silent in the face of the injustices brought on by antiquated religious belief. When Dan Savage recently spoke to students at a High School J ...

Jerry Buell should be fired

Times are hard in America. Job security is eroding fast, as is the middle class. This puts everyone on edge, which would explain some of the blow-back from fans concerning my opinion that there is something fundamentally broken with the way teachers are unionized in America. Of course, that's not to imply that I want to destroy all the rights workers have managed to harangue from the clutches of the very we ...
