American Atheist new Billboards advertise in Arabic and Hebrew

Despite living in a (supposedly) secular environment, many Americans are unwilling to identify themselves as Atheists for fear of losing their jobs, their loved ones, or the community bond they have worked so hard to forge. In some extremely isolated communities, potential non-believers may be completely unaware that millions of others don't subscribe to any religion. Often, this knowledge alone can make th ...

Another reason to love Daniel Radcliffe

I generally dislike when celebrities try and participate in the political discourse. Sure, I might not mind if someone famous agrees with me on every issue (which has yet to happen), but most of the time, celebrities use the spotlight to demonstrate how little they know about important topics. Such cause célèbre also tend to make them look foolish. Remember Brad and Angelina's attempt to re-invigorate Louis ...

A Note about the future

Since announcing that I will no longer be recording podcasts in the near future, a number of fans have asked if TGA will be shut down or closed. While I don't plan on recording NEW podcasts, I would like to take some time to re-master my old work, piece together my favorite posts over the years, and find bloopers and gems that never made it to the shows. The whole reason I started the podcast in the first p ...

The Gaystopo and liberal fascism

You've probably noticed the new tactic from bigoted religionists claiming that their rights (specifically the right to discriminate against people for their sexual orientation) are being infringed. Well, this strategy has now morphed into a baseless accusation of fascism by a right wing nutjob named Alan Craig. He's determined that the threat of wider acceptance of same-sex marriage as a sign of fascism. Th ...

"Pain is merely weakness leaving your body" "You won't last long if you start feeling sorry for yourself" "Pay attention; you are a loser" If you want to have a scary cultist environment, you need the following (all of which seem present in this "retreat"). - Use food deprivation to make people more tired, and susceptible to suggestion - Use hard physical labor to break down subjects to make them more submi ...

IHOP 24 hour prayer session does nothing

Remember these wackos? A few weeks ago, The International House of Prayer and their fearless leader Mike Bickle, made headlines after accusing Oprah Winfrey of being the Anti-Christ. These people are not to be underestimated. Since its humble beginnings, the church has grown by leaps and bounds. It's recently opened a four-year Bible college, and plans of building a massive 100 million dollar church complex ...

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 ...

7 Reasons why the Wizard of Oz is the work of Satan

Before listening to the enlightening sermon of Pastor David Grice, I thought the Wizard of Oz was a whimsical musical featuring a talented cast of actors bringing a classic tale to life. Little did I realize that it's actually a psychotic story of a young murderer and her unwitting accomplices. Yes, the Wizard of Oz is Satanic, and with the help of David's hilarious sermon (he reminds me of a chubbier Will ...
