Billionaire to give money to Catholic church to fulfill “pact with God”

Albert Gubay, founder of Kwik Save (a grocery chain in the UK) has put his business into a trust in order to keep a promise he made to an invisible sky deity after he asked his help to become a millionaire. Now, at 82, this Catholic is now donating almost a billion dollars to various Roman Catholic charities (you may recall these are the same institutions that use homeless people and orphans as pawns in the ...

Senator Shultheis wants to open schools to proselytizers

Religious proselytizers have a new buzzword their throwing around to try and justify their renewed efforts to break down the wall separating church and state; they are arguing that their religious freedoms are being threatened. Take this example: Sen. David Schultheis is proposing a new bill that would allow students and faculty members to actively try and recruit on school grounds. Schultheis, a Republican ...

Religious Right issues bullshit manifesto

There's a bit of an ideological war going on in the Christian faith, and if you weren't paying close attention, you wouldn't even know it's waging. Take the "Manhattan Declaration" for instance (not the one on climate change), a frightening manifesto by religious conservatives that claims equality and anti-discrimination laws are destroying people's freedom of religion. Their biggest issues, unsuprisingly, ...

Catholic Archdiocese in Washington still sucks

Back in November I reported the Catholic Diocese in Washington DC was threatening to cut its service to the homeless if it was forced to comply with a proposed bill to make same sex unions legal. Well, it looks like their pressure tactic has failed, since the bill actually passed. If you feel like wasting your time, there's an online petition asking Archbishop Wuerl not to be such a fucking douchebag, but l ...

Lesson 9 is driving California bigots crazy

I'm going to make no bones about this; if you find homosexuality repulsive, wrong, unnatural, weird, disgusting, freakish or sinful, you are a bigot. Now, the good news is all of us are a little bigoted in a bunch of usually unconscious ways, so you're not alone. In all honesty, before my buddy Jeff came out of the closet, I have to admit to having been a bit of a bigot myself. As is often the case with us ...

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 ...

Mormon feels guilty for Prop 8

This video taught me three important lessons: (1) not every Mormon is a bigoted jackass who wants to destroy the rights of gays to marry, (2) The Mormon church can't stand these people (which is why this guy's speech is cut short), and (3) babies are FUCKING ANNOYING. props to The Atheist Mind for the find ...

Kiss-in planned at LDS plaza

Yesterday I wrote about how two men were handcuffed and charged with a misdemeanor for kissing at the Main Street Plaza, which is owned by the LDS Chruch. Now, former city councilwoman Deeda Seed is planning a "kiss-in", asking everyone to bring their partners to show each other affection in response. The most interesting thing about the article has to be the comments. Now I know lots of people feel that pr ...

It’s hard to be a bigot these days!

It must be a tough time for homophobes. It's become dangerously unpopular to hold 'controversial' views on homosexuality these days. The aging baby boomers must be absolutely terrified we've all gone insane or something by allowing equal rights to gays and lesbians. Why in their day, you kept those people quiet, afraid, and repressed! If one of your family members was gay, you would keep that shit a secret. ...

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 ...
