Mormon Elder claims Freedom of Religion in jeopardy

There are two things that will never change in this world: 1) people will always have reasons to hate others, and 2) religions will always provide a way to make this exceedingly easy. Take the Mormon Church for example: they've been diligently working to ensure that gays and lesbians aren't allowed to marry out of the ridiculous notion that doing so "violates" the sanctity of marriage. Because of a few pass ...

Westboro Church to protest Elizabeth Edward’s funeral

That vile family, the Westboros, continues its crusade to show the world just how insensitive and cruel they really are. Their next target is Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former Presidential hopeful John Edwards. She died this week after fighting breast cancer for years, and because she fought hard for gay rights and had some harsh words for God following the death of her 16 year old son, the "little church t ...

Co-founder of Family Research council caught with “callboy”

Let's picture a little scenario, shall we? Imagine for a moment you are the co-founder of a blatantly anti-homosexual group, and one day you accidentally get caught with a 20 year old male escort from a site called "RentBoy.com". Do you: a) try to play it cool and pretend you only hired the guy to carry your luggage? b) Claim you are doing research into the homosexual lifestyle? c) Finally come out of the c ...

Friendly Atheist under attack

Ok, the title of my article is a little inflamatory, but how else can you describe a consentrated effort on the part of the Illinois Family Institute to get Friendly Atheist Hemant Mehta fired from his job as a high school math teacher? Sounds like an attack to me. IFL director Laurie Higgins is on a crusade to get the school faculty to punish him for writing an atheist blog on his free time, even though it ...

California’s Supreme Court upholds Prop 8

It looks like gays wanting to marry in the state of California aren't done fighting for it. The California Supreme court upheld Prop 8, proving once again even state judges are unable to understand their own constitutions. Because lawyers fighting for gay rights had no precedence from which to base their case other than the fact gays are provided fewer rights than their straight counterparts. I'm wondering ...

Some of you may wonder why I talk about gay rights on a site about atheism. You might also wonder why many atheist bloggers also defend the right for gays to marry. Perhaps some of you think they are unrelated issues. However, there is no denying the fact the reason gays are not treated as true members of society is because of religious intolerance which seeks to marginalize this group. I personally have a ...

Marco Rubio doesn’t know what a bigot is

Lying is thirsty work, don't you know! The problem with most bigots is they have no idea what being a bigot entails. When you're spoon-fed a bunch of bullshit lies your entire life that one can 'respect' a human being while still denying them the same rights as you, you're bound to be confused when everyone is constantly pointing out that the things you say and do are unacceptable. Man, that must get annoyi ...
