Alberta is now worse than Texas

I don't like you, Alberta. You aren't like the other provinces in this country which are generally reasonable. In the rest of Canada, religion and government don't mix. We generally try to be tolerant, polite, and nice. Now you apparently all want to be cowboys, having gone ahead and passed Bill 44. Congratulations, you have the distinction of being worse than Texas when it comes to education. How is this e ...

More efforts by Catholics to keep abuses secret

It's not only Ireland that is battling the Catholic church and their long list of abuses against children. In Bridgeport, Connecticut, the Diocese is attempting to keep thousands of pages of court files, numerous lawsuits dating back to 2001, from being released to the public. They attempt to show they have actively been fighting to prevent further abuses, but their obvious need to protect the identities of ...

No really, Islam is a religion of peace…

The Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan is in turmoil. Although there is a German military base there, 600 soldiers have to patrol and defend an area the size of Massachusetts. The Taliban has been gaining ground rapidly, threatening to kill school girls if they try to attend class. School administrators are powerless to do anything about it, and scared parents are capitulating to the treats. If you rec ...

North Korea tests some nukes underground

With Kim Jong-il getting on in years, it's difficult to imagine just what is going through his insane little mind. Technically, Korea is still under the command of his deceased father, just to show you the kind of weird shit that goes on over there. Now Kim is claiming they are testing nukes underground, and according to seismologists, this isn't a bluff. I'm not usually a fear monger, but this kind of news ...

My daughter is an atheist: call the FBI

When Ann Landers died (real name Esther Pauline Friedman), her daughter took over the family 'advice column' racket. She didn't, however, take on the famous moniker. Her column is a fairly innocuous and predictable affair, except perhaps for a recent letter she received: Our daughter started college a year ago, and we’ve noticed during her visits home that she’s not the sweet, innocent girl we sent away for ...

MI5 tries to force Muslims to become informants

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about how poorly Muslims in England have integrated within their society, especially when compared to other European countries like France and Germany. Although I'm not in any position to speculate as to why that is, a recent story about MI5 and their campaign of harassment is telling me that relations are not about to improve anytime soon. It seems that the desperate inte ...

Confused article accuses atheists of being boring and whiny

It seems like every time I read an article about atheism from an obviously religiously motivated individual, I'm always looking for the punchline. We've been accused of everything from spoiling everyone's good time to being overly dramatic, and now in this LA Times article, of being terribly boring. Charlotte Allen is the writer of the book: The Human Christ: The Search for the Historical Jesus. The title s ...

Church tried to lure kids into creepy van for baptisms

It used to be you only needed to warn your kids not to trust strangers trying to lure them into their vehicles for fear they might be kidnapped. Now parents in Colorado Springs have to worry about the Cornerstone Baptist Church luring their kids inside their creepy vans in order to baptize them. That's what nearly happened to a 7th grader at Russell Middle School. Administrators immediately sent a warning o ...

Shocker: atheists are despised!

Austin Cline over at About.com put together this comprehensive list of surveys showing just how despised atheists are as a minority. When Americans were asked who they would vote for, the atheist candidate was always the most hated one. For people like you and me, this kind of attitude seems pretty puzzling. Sure, we can be a bunch of killjoys at parties, but statistically, we are less likely to commit viol ...

Iraqi militia torturing and killing gays

It's bad enough the situation is Iraq is a mess; now we have to deal with the knowledge the Iraqi military is engaging in some sick and twisted tactics to torture and kill homosexuals in the country: “A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using ‘Iranian gum.’ …Yina Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, ...
