Interfaith dialog at its finest

It's pretty rare I agree with the Pope, but he's recently been calling on Pakistan to repeal their insane blasphemy laws, and I'm behind him on this one. His calls were met, unsurprisingly, with a friendly "mind your own fucking business": The pope has given a statement today that has not only offended the 180 million Muslims in Pakistan, it has also hurt the sentiments of the entire Islamic world," said Ha ...

Religion is loony

The Elizabeth Smart kidnapping trial is finally over, and because Brian David Mitchel (or Immanuel as he liked to call himself) was found guilty, the question of his mental state, and the mental state of religious people, is being brought to light. It seems, however, rather than an honest look at the delusion of belief, we're treated to a rigmarole of "experts" who seem to be too busy defending religious be ...

Vatican Cardinal thinks atheism is “irrational”

A man who dresses in red robes and calls himself by a special name believes individuals who reject the notion of unsupported supernatural claims are irrational. Walter Brandmuller may never have played Dungeons & Dragons, but if he did, he might realize there is nothing particularly special about his title; definitely not enough to pretend to know anything about objective reality. When, however, has tha ...

This is what the fuss is all about

This picture of two guys making out next to the Pope pretty much summarizes what all this stupid hysteria is about: religious demagogues want the whole world to fit into their narrow definition of "acceptable behavior", completely ignoring the fact same sex attraction is as normal and healthy as its heterosexual counterpart. What makes me angry is how blind they are to the suffering, humiliation and shame o ...

FFRF talks about their Daily Show experience

When the Daily Show did a segment on the Freedom From Religion Foundation's quest to stop a Mother Teresa stamp from being issued by the US Post Office, I figured that we atheists would end up looking not so hot as a result. After all, talking shit about MT nowadays is the equivalent of ripping up a picture of the pope on TV in the early 90s ... no one really knows the nasty details about her, so we end up ...

Calamities of Nature

A fan of the site (they exist apparently) sent me a link to this webcomic, Calamities of Nature,  and I thought some of them had some pretty genuinely funny and interesting points to make about religion, the Pope, and creationism. I feel as though the character of Aaron has a lot in common with little old me. I just have to ask one question though: where the fuck are his eyes? ...

Vatican upset over Foreign Office memo

A couple days ago, a memo circulated around the Foreign Office suggesting some "ideas" for Pope Benedict XVI's visit to England. The list included the Pope launching his own condom to opening an abortion clinic. Like any memo that begins with the words "should not be shared externally", it quickly escaped the confines of the office and has so outraged the Vatican they are threatening not to come to the coun ...
