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 ...

Taliban moving closer to Islamabad

I'm not a fear monger, but right now, the whole world needs to pay attention to what is going on in Pakistan. Taliban militants are continuing their assault, and have had a series of victories that continue to move them closer to the capital of Pakistan. It's risen fears the country is on the brink of collapse, and the secular Awami National party is on the verge of being overrun. If you don't think that's ...

Saudi police prevent fire rescue

People sometimes criticize me for taking such a strong stance against Islam. I'm told it's a religion of peace by many of its practitioners. I'd like very much to believe them, but the actions of its strictest adherents continues to shock and dismay. Take this story in Saudi Arabia where 15 school girls died in a fire. Their deaths could have been prevented, but the rescue was hindered by the fact the polic ...

British Christians cry foul over TV portrayals

I don't watch much British TV, but according to this article on a IK Christian website, it looks as though they are upset their religion is being mocked on TV. They site an episode of Eastenders in which a religious character looks buffoonish in her view of homosexuality. Other soaps apparently show characters complaining about the superstitious nature of religion, and how they target vulnerable people. So ...
