Kansas City atheists barred from participating in St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Normally when you think of St. Patrick's Day, images of green beer, girls in t-shirts that say "kiss me, I'm Irish", and drunken revelers usually pop into your head. Over the decades since we've been 'observing' these liver destroying traditions, the religious elements of the holiday have generally fallen to the wayside, replaced instead with a party to celebrate the fact that Irish people exist. Hey, I'm p ...

Another stupid Ark being built, this time in Texas

They say everything is bigger in Texas: this probably also applies to the insanity of the populace there. How else can you explain this church deciding to build their own version of Noah's Ark at the cost of a cool 5 million bucks? You might recall that there's a similar project out of Florida that's been trying to get funding from Kickstarter. After almost a month, they've managed to snag an impressive $52 ...

How to annoy your coworkers, Jesus style

You know what I love? I love it when I'm at the office, and someone vaguely familiar with their religion decides that it's their duty to try and convert me to whatever bullshit they believe in at the time. Yes, there's nothing in this world I love more than watching these people squirm when you start asking them questions their priest never really prepared them for. What's the deal with Jesus and his intens ...

‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ should return…this time for religion

I've always found America's obsession with the military disturbing. First and foremost, it is heavily populated by the poorest, least educated members of society who often have little choice in joining if they hope to have an education, or even a future outside of Walmart. You always hear on TV how much respect they should be given, due to their sacrifice in 'protecting freedom'. In reality, the military is ...

Hurricane Sandy relief to violate Establishment Clause

It's no small irony that when Republicans talk about smaller government, this same crippled beast seems to have no problems handing gobs of cash to institutions they have no business helping. Take the recent appropriation of 60 billion dollars for Hurricane Sandy. The Republican controlled House has voted to allow some of the money to be used to rebuild houses of worship, a clear violation of the Establishm ...

Phase one: Growth

This article first appeared on jacobfortin.com and I've reposted it here so hard-core members who haven't yet had their accounts activated could keep track of the progress of The 300. After only a few days and a half-assed attempt on my part to actually sell the idea of "The 300", I'm happy to say we've already reached almost 30 confirmed members in a little over a week. If we manage to keep this pace, we w ...

Mommy and Daddy broke up, kids

In case you haven't had the chance to listen to Episode 306 of the podcast, Carisa and I are no longer a romantic couple. I've moved back to the east coast, and despite us both being sad at this recent development, it was a mutual decision. Obviously, this has some pretty serious consequences for me, and the podcast in the future. To make up for the expense of moving again, I'll probably need to find a part ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 303

After building a makeshift recording setup, I was able to interview Professor of Native Archeology Dean R. Snow to talk about the legend of the Great Peacemaker, the structure of Native society, and how things might have played out differently if not for the European Invasion. NOTES: Dr. Dean R. Snow, Professor of Archeology at Penn State. Author of “Archeology of North America”, Difficulty finding reliable ...

Pink Swastika author Scott Lively charged with crimes against humanity

If you don't know who Scott Lively is, he's the monster who authored The Pink Swastika, a book I've derided in the past for its pseudo-historical claim that Nazis were a secret gay organization intent on destroying heterosexuality. It ranks about as high as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of historical verisimilitude. In March of 2009, Scott and a posse of other Evangelical Christians traveled ...
