Priest fail

Isn't it hilarious how religious people are utterly convinced believing in the absurd makes them better people? Despite plenty of proof to the contrary, it never seems to register that for the most part, religion makes people more xenophobic, more racist, more likely to support torture, and more ignorant. How are you supposed to be more moral when that's the case? If Christianity is supposed to make you mor ...

Kiwi youths uninformed about Easter

How did your Zombie Jesus Weekend turn out? Personally I stuffed myself with food and partied way too hard, but it's pretty much the only way most people I know tend to celebrate. In fact, it looks like most of New Zealand has no fucking clue what the holiday is actually about. According to a super unscientific survey they did, kids are generally ignorant as to the history and purpose of Easter. It's hilari ...

Dead nun credited for medical marvel

With all the bad press they've been getting recently for harboring child-rapists, continuing their campaign to prevent contraceptive use in AIDS-ridden Africa, and saying generally hateful things about gays, the Vatican is looking for a bit of good news. Their deliverance has taken the form of a disfigured young boy, saved from the clutches of death by medical science and a combative immune system. His pare ...

The evils of Missionary work

A recent article on haveyoureadthebible.com on missionary work left me both angry and disgusted. If you've got the time, I highly recommend reading it if you want your blood to boil a little (especially the pictures of these morons on dune buggies and hiking trips). I never grew up in a particularly religious environment, thanks largely to my anti-theist father, so my interactions with missionaries occurred ...

Conservative Christians are hypocrites

When it comes to the right to practice their religion the way they see fit - which includes complaining whenever they aren't allowed to openly discriminate against gays - Conservative Christians take that shit pretty seriously. Unfortunately, they're also a bunch of annoying hypocrites who think every other religion is dangerous idolatry, even when it's a bunch of innocent people dressing up like characters ...

Can’t keep track of your own bullshit, can you guy?

Watch Robby as he attempts to dodge every pertinent question from a real journalist who isn't content throwing him softballs. The best he can muster is this answer: "Christians have built whole dogmas about what happens when you die and we have to be very careful that we don't build whole doctrines and dogmas on what is speculation" Umm, you wrote an entire book that is nothing BUT speculation, dude! Even s ...

Arkansas OK’s bill to make Bible study an elective course

Apparently legislators in Arkansas are convinced the ills of society can be fixed if they ensure students are brainwashed into Christianity. In order to do so, they've passed a Bill that would lay out "guidelines" for public schools who want to offer elective classes on the Bible. Republican Rep. Denny Altes called the Bible the most accurate history book and says students could learn about its influence on ...

Phillipines joins Dark Ages

Thanks to the progressive beliefs of Christianity, citizens in the small suburb of Alabang will need a prescription to buy birth control pills or condoms. Violators of the ordinance's provisions will be fined an amount no less than P1,000 but not exceeding P5,000 for the first offense. A second offense will be fined not less than P5,000 and will merit imprisonment for not less than one month but not exceedi ...

Sectarian peace in all its glory

Nigeria is currently the battleground between Christianity and Islam. Since last year, over 2000 people have died fighting. Despite communities trying to sign various peace treaties with one another, every once in a while they just start attacking one another again. It's a perfect example of the kind of division and strife that mutually incompatible beliefs cause. The latest incident involves 18 Christians ...

Religion is for the simple

There's an article that appeared in the Guardian today entitled "Christianity: a faith for the simple", and while I agree with the premise of the article, I feel as though the author got everything precisely wrong on the subject. There was a recent study done in the US polling the religiosity of the country's scientists, which I'm unhappy to report is higher than in most other countries. Of course, the rela ...
