Racism disguised as piety

When you believe in a dogma without question, odds are you've managed to find fertile ground for your racist, sexist, or bigoted ideas. Like this South African man who apparently forgot apartheid wasn't quite over: A Muslim police officer in Johannesburg says his religion does not allow him to share a toilet with black colleagues, according to a report on Wednesday. "I am a Muslim and they need to consider ...

Crazy Jews in New York prove racism is alive and well

Isn't it nice to know no one has the monopoly on racism, bigotry, and intolerance? All of this is brought to you by the divisive powers of religion! Act now, and you too can benefit from not having an open mind, and needlessly hating on other minorities simply because their beliefs aren't exactly the same as yours. Order religion today! ...

The real dangers of racism, bigotry and hatred

I've been a little obsessed with the media lately. I really can't help myself in the light of Dr. George Tiller's death. It was only after his murder I had an opportunity to see the full scope of the religious right's campaign against him. The carefully worded press releases all publicly condemn the act, but it's no surprise the majority of them are in fact quite pleased at Tiller's death. I've begun to rea ...

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 ...

Maryland gets Marriage Equality

I know the big news story today is President Obama being re-elected, but I hope this bit of news doesn't get buried under all the brouhaha: it seems as though the tiny state of Maryland has legalized same-sex marriage by approving "Question 6" on the ballot. Now, before you celebrate this victory, you should know a few important details: Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian ...

An open letter to Sam Harris

Perhaps I'm not the best person to offer advice on how to deal with trolls. My site gets relatively light traffic, and the people who visit tend to be way too polite, nice, or otherwise supportive. My lack of popularity in a sense has shielded me from the kind of criticism you're reglarly subjected to. Still, I feel I understand why your positions have been so villified, and why you often find yourself outs ...

Michele Bachmann vows to stay crazy

The election may be far away, but American politicians seeking the highest office usually spend months, sometimes years trying to get the support and (more importantly) the funding to make it happen. Michele, aware that the list of presidential candidates is weak enough to allow her a chance of victory, is busy making pledges she hopes will attract that massive segment of the American population that still ...

Accommodation or confrontation?

Since arriving in Calgary, I made a simple promise to myself I would further my involvement in the local atheist community. It was therefore fortuitous that after only of few days of adjusting to my new surroundings, an opportunity to meet up with other atheists presented itself in the form of a lecture. Held at the University of Calgary last night, it was entitled "The Evolution-Creation Controversy". Dr. ...

Mormon Elder claims Freedom of Religion in jeopardy

There are two things that will never change in this world: 1) people will always have reasons to hate others, and 2) religions will always provide a way to make this exceedingly easy. Take the Mormon Church for example: they've been diligently working to ensure that gays and lesbians aren't allowed to marry out of the ridiculous notion that doing so "violates" the sanctity of marriage. Because of a few pass ...

Kontribute to the Klan today

How many times have you been sitting at home worried to death your light skin pigmentation isn't being recognized enough? Are you worried some of the darker apes might undermine the "revival" of good old fashioned bigotry and racism? Well, if you have more busted vehicles in your lawn than you do teeth and you're feeling generous, then head on over the the KKK.bz, where donations are being accepted to fight ...
