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 ...

Miss California’s church thinks homosexuals are child molesters

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 ...

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 ...

An atheist life: Krista’s story

Since starting this section of the website, I've many great stories, but none were as intense as Krista's. Her early life exemplified the dangers of belief, especially when combined with mindless superstition, ritual, and dogmatic platitudes. Here is her story: I decided to write this in order to draw attention to the damage that religion can cause to children. At the same time I want to say that my parents ...

How the US really feels about gays

Signing a UN declaration is roughly as binding as your New Years resolution. Still, they are symbolic representations, somewhat like a lofty resolution, indicating an important issue which needs attention. It's why I'm appalled the US failed to sign a UN declaration aiming at decriminalizing homosexuality. Of course, I'm not entirely surprised, since the government seems to have no regard for civil libertie ...
