Vatican considers British Equity Bill “unjust”

It seems as though the Vatican is unable to mind their own damn business, as they've recently opposed a piece of legislation in the UK commonly known as the "Equity Bill". The Bill itself seems to focus on trying to tackle discrimination in workplaces, for anything ranging from age, race, gender, and (more importantly for the church) sexual orientation. Now the Pope may be an evil scumbag, but he's no fool; ...

Murphy report buries Catholic Church

I get emails from Catholics all the time asking me why I'm "picking" on their religion. It's true they certainly aren't the only game in town, but they are perhaps the most influential and financially wealthy religious organization in the world. It must be strange for them to hear so much criticism. It's only been recently that any of us have actually been allowed to speak ill of the church without having t ...

Cry me a river

So, according to this guy, atheists are a plague; a bunch of unimaginative accountants of rationalism, unable to appreciate the beauty of a Picasso because we have yet to surrender our reason to dogma. Likewise, the audience that Greg Craven tries to appeal to (disgruntled Catholics who feel attacked by "new atheists") believe every single nonbeliever is a crusty curmudgeon hell bent on ruining everyone's " ...

Catholic charity in Washington threatens to cut service over gay rights issue

Remember the video I put up with Stephen Fry and Christopher Hitchens debating about whether or not the Catholic Church is a force for good? In one part of the video, a well meaning woman stood up and commented on the fact that she was a Catholic and didn't really have any issue with Fry's homosexuality. Stephen responded by saying that the position of the Catholic Church regarding homosexuality is clear, a ...

A Crusade against atheism

This comic is in response to the Pope's recent "Crusade" to try and blame environmental problems, societal degradation, and all the maladies of the world on secularism. Does he have any proof of these assertions? You must have forgotten about Papal Infallibility if you asked such a silly question! ...

Reports of clerical abuse keep pouring in

One of my favorite movie moments from childhood is the scene from Rocky 4 where Rocky Balboa keeps getting repeatedly punched in the face by Ivan Drago (perhaps Doulph Lundgren's greatest role), until finally, exhausted from punching, Drago is defeated. Rocky 4 was a true 80s cheese movie, complete with endless montages, pointless moralizing about steroid use, and of course, America winning the day. Despite ...

Does loving dogs make you a genocidal monster?

Ok, that may sound like a stupid question, but let me refer you to the picture above. Hitler loved his dog, and he was responsible for the Holocaust. Surely, according to this logic, I've made a powerful case against owning canines. If you think I've gone insane, rest assured I'm only trying to prove a point. There's an article on Proud Atheist that tries to debunk the claim Christians make about Hitler's p ...

Getting it monstrously wrong

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article calling for Catholics to abandon the church in light of the recent news Pope Benedict XVI was behind the cover up of child abuse scandals. Obviously, I didn't actually think any Catholics would hear me out. I mean, I am a filthy heathen after all. I'm finding it difficult, however, to stay silent for long about the general attitude some Catholics have about the revelation ...

The Catholic Church needs to be abandoned

I want to send out a clear message today about the Catholic Church. I know many Catholics are feeling persecuted, brow beaten, and tired of all of the bad press they've been getting recently. It doesn't help matters when your Pope quotes a Byzantine Emperor who claimed that Islam was spread by holy war. If you think that's bad, you need to sit down to hear this staggeringly horrible piece of news: Pope Bene ...

Extreme Christian runs on ‘Kill Gays’ platform

Who says Americans get to have all the political fun? At a federal election debate held at a Sudbury high school, independent candidate David Popescu shared some of his extreme religious views. From the Edmonton Sun: Popescu introduced himself with a public prayer, blaming environmental damage and economic unrest on the wickedness of society. His comments were met with silence as some students grimaced and ...
