This is considered hate speech?

I think overly sensitive Christians need to re-examine their definition of hate speech. Political hopeful William J. Kelly is attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill, claiming a sign erected by the Freedom from Religion Foundation in the Illinois Capital Building is hate speech: At the time of the winter solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There ...

Conservatives have their panties in a twist over Avatar

It was bound to happen; a number of conservative blogs are already complaining that Avatar is anti-American leftist propaganda, glorifying the Na'vi and showing humans as the bad guys. The main character's choice to stand by the Na'vi is seen by the right as the ultimate treachery to both God and capitalism (two things that conservatives seem unable to disassociate). The problem with life on earth is not Ca ...

World Vision sucks

Here's an interesting article calling on President Obama to revise the terms of funding for World Vision, the largest Christian charity in the world, for its failure to abide by the First Amendment (that pesky separation of church and state portion of your Constitution). You see, since they receive approximately 250 million dollars from federal monies, the organization would technically be required to allow ...

Malaysian Muslims attack Christians for using the word Allah

You know what I love about atheism? We don't confer words with special powers. This gives us an advantage; you won't see angry atheists taking to the streets because the word "evolution" is being misused (even though we might get tempted when jackasses like Kirk Cameron spew their anti-evolutionary nonsense around), and when's the last time an atheist firebombed a building to punish the sacrilegious use of ...

Brit Hume still doesn’t get it

Remember the video I put up of conservative commenter Brit Hume telling Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity? Well, he's gotten a bit of a bitch slap by the media since then, and he's playing the victim card now. He claims that if he had told Tiger to convert to Hinduism instead, no one would have made a big deal about it. "There is a double standard. If I had said, for example, that what Tiger Woods need ...

Surprise: Christians feel persecuted

The Christian Anti-Defamation League has just released their "Top 10 Instances of Christian Bashing" for 2009, and as you'll see, most of them are centered around homosexuality: 10. Pro-life Pastor Reverend Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA was jailed for exercising peaceful, pro-life speech. 9. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois. 8. HBO's program "Curb Your Enthusi ...

Sam Harris spanks Karen Armstrong

Religious apologists have a powerful ally in Karen Armstrong. If you recall some of the articles I've written about her, Karen is the founder of Charter for Compassion, a rather naive attempt to create a dialog between people of various faiths. The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ours ...

Brit Hume is a dick

I guess to some Christians, believing in God is a bit like bargaining for a used car; you want to make sure you're getting a good deal. Brit Hume, a FOX News regular, seems to think Buddhism offers too little in the way of redemption, and that Tiger Woods needs to convert to Christianity to feel better. It's this kind of "wheeling and dealing" that I can't fucking stand about this religion; it's also why it ...

Uganda and “The Family” are fucked up

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy If you've never heard of the not-so-secret-anymore "Family", I might suggest you look them up before continuing to read this post. In a nutshell, these guys are a group of powerful and influential individuals who believe the true message of Christianity isn't about charity, forgiveness or any of the other typical conventions; they cov ...

Hitchens, Harris and Dennett destroy D’Souza, Wright, and some other dude no one cares about

I personally find it pretty painful and embarrassing to listen to D'Souza talk. At least Wright takes the stance it could be some mysterious force out there in the Universe that directs evolution (it's stupid, but lots of really smart people believe in this bullshit). D'Souza, on the other hand, tries to make the claim that Christianity is the most scientific of all faiths, despite the obvious fact his syst ...
