No divine protection for you!

There are only two churches in Williamsville, Illinois, and after a tornado destroyed one of them, residents are saddened by their angry deity's decision to test their faith by collapsing the roof and walls of a church that was considered a 'cornerstone of the community'. Ok, I'm actually making the last part up. All of them seem to think it was just a natural phenomenon that took the church down (would the ...

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 ...

Steve Harvey gets regular spot on Good Morning America

Man, I love America. It's the only country on earth where a man who has been married 3 times can write a book on relationships and end up on the New York Times Bestseller list for 26 weeks. Steve Harvey, the terribly unfunny star of his own show, has now joined Good Morning America and will be interacting with viewers with topics ranging from relationships to parenting. You might remember Steve as a staunch ...

Go to Church, Gays!

I had a vision the other night. I was reading an article about Christian ecumenism (which means interfaith dialog), and I realized the issue of homosexuality will, in the long run, destroy the progress that various branches of Christianity have made in "getting along". In a nutshell, ecumenism is a way for different faiths to show respect towards one another, and to have progressive dialogs with one another ...

American Psychological Association report says “stop converting gays”

OK, I'm paraphrasing here, but the APA concluded yesterday that there is no evidence therapies meant to change someone's sexual orientation are effective or healthy. In fact, their findings showed lasting changes were unlikely, and asked mental health practitioners to stop suggesting this kind of therapy. The article seems to tap dance around the real reason why these types of therapies exist: Religious con ...

Church of England split is inevitable

The issue of homosexuality is the biggest threat to the stability of the Church of England, with many groups within the church actively campaigning against 'active' gays (I assume by active they mean having gay sex) in the community according to this BBCNews article. Over the years, the Church of England has become increasingly liberal, and their view on homosexuality has softened quite a bit. Obviously, no ...

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. ...

Who wants to go book burning?

I've heard of some pretty stupid lawsuits in my day, but this one takes the prize as most insulting and intellectually bankrupt. The case involves a number of plaintiffs who are suing a library in Milwaukee for their decision to allow a controversial book to be in the Young Adult section. The book, Baby Be-Bop, is the story of Dirk and his struggle to come to terms with his homosexuality. The group is suing ...

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 ...

Alberta is run by morons

I can't beat around the bush when it comes to Alberta and their education policy: moronic is too kind a word, but I'm working on toning down my swearing. Their government is proposing a new bill allowing parents to pull their children from discussions of evolution or homosexuality in public schools, and it's expected to pass. Parents who want their children to be sheltered from evolutionary fact, or from se ...
