Leo Igwe interview transcript

Jake: Today I have a very special guest, someone who is going to join me to talk about the problem of child witches in Africa as well as the conflation of religion and superstition in that region. I wanted to ask someone who has had their feet on the ground here, because, you know, I am an isolated blogger and I want to make sure that I am not just saying false information and with this in mind, I invited L ...

The Genesis Code looks awful

Movie premise: a Christian girl finds her faith and her budding career as a scientist conflicting. A young hockey player, who has lost his belief in non-sense, will find his way back to magic when a group of students discover that The Bible doesn't conflict with science (even though it fucking obviously does). Liberal academics attempt to erode their faith, but luckily God wins and an old woman is disallowe ...

Cindy Jacobs is batshit crazy

If you're unfamiliar with the insanity of Cindy Jacobs, I have the misfortune of introducing you to a special kind of crazy bitch. Imagine if Marcia Gay Harden's character in the movie "The Mist" had somehow found a way to traverse the fantasy barrier and crossed over into the real world (yes, I know it's a terrible movie plot, but someone should have said that to Arnold Schwarzenegger) In January of 2011, ...

More of this “raising the dead” nonsense

More of these Christian nutjobs claiming to be able to raise the dead. How do you argue with people that have gone that far off the deep end? It boggles the mind, it does. "You can have expectations of seeing miracles every day" You might be overselling it a little, lady. If you create these kinds of expectations, people might get a little disappointed when nothing happens. Hey, you could always take whatev ...

Is this the best Christian Apologists can do?

It ain't easy being a Christian: sure, they might be the majority (for now), but every other day the faith is challenged by objective reality. While many Christians will scoff at the idea that their religion is in trouble, the truth is that countries like Canada, Sweden, and Australia are quickly shedding their religious coat in favor of a broader "spirituality" that doesn't have to deal with the many incon ...

Nintendo Jesus

A fan found this article on Kotaku of a woman who supposedly found the image of Jesus on her old Nintendo. Truly it's a message of hope for all of you gamers out there who worry that the "King of Kings" doesn't approve of your lifestyle. A Maryland woman said she was surprised to find what appears to be an image of Jesus Christ on the top of a used Nintendo Entertainment System she purchased on eBay for $US ...

5 Life Lessons I learned from “The Unbeatables”

You can learn a lot from a video. Did you know that all drugs, once your brain is "on them", will resemble a fried egg? I know this for a fact because Rachel Leah Cook smashed someone's house up with a frying pan to prove it. Clearly, lessons abound in the digital format, so I thought it might be nice to extract some lessons of our own from this Christian cartoon courtesy of NuBeat Music (a Christian music ...

What Churches are all about

If you're a small church in the West, odds are attendance is at an all time low, tithing is way down, and desperate vicars are looking for ways to attract people into their nonsense. With profits dwindling away, any bit of parlor magic or cheap holy relic is bound to seem like a boon. Of course, it's important to capitalize on these opportunities while your congregation is still shockingly ignorant and impr ...

John Paul II gets more credit for doing nothing

This is so stupid I felt like ignoring it, but since today is "make fun of ignorant Catholics Day", I had to include it. You're all intimately aware of the demise of bin Laden, but did you know that it was John Paul II that was responsible? That's what the dumb-ass leader of Peru thinks: Peruvian President Alan Garcia says Pope John Paul II should get credit for the death of Osama bin Laden."His first mirac ...

Dead nun credited for medical marvel

With all the bad press they've been getting recently for harboring child-rapists, continuing their campaign to prevent contraceptive use in AIDS-ridden Africa, and saying generally hateful things about gays, the Vatican is looking for a bit of good news. Their deliverance has taken the form of a disfigured young boy, saved from the clutches of death by medical science and a combative immune system. His pare ...
