Friendly Atheist under attack

Ok, the title of my article is a little inflamatory, but how else can you describe a consentrated effort on the part of the Illinois Family Institute to get Friendly Atheist Hemant Mehta fired from his job as a high school math teacher? Sounds like an attack to me. IFL director Laurie Higgins is on a crusade to get the school faculty to punish him for writing an atheist blog on his free time, even though it ...

Christian Action League supports bullying of gays

When I was in elementary school, I was bullied by a giant idiot named Clay. Clay had failed a few times, and as such, he was significantly bigger than everyone else in the same grade (he was roughly twice as big as I was). His obvious stupidity and lack of brain power made him detest anyone who appeared intelligent or interested in school. His favorite tactic was to hold kids upside down and shake them unti ...

British Christians cry foul over TV portrayals

I don't watch much British TV, but according to this article on a IK Christian website, it looks as though they are upset their religion is being mocked on TV. They site an episode of Eastenders in which a religious character looks buffoonish in her view of homosexuality. Other soaps apparently show characters complaining about the superstitious nature of religion, and how they target vulnerable people. So ...

Rainbow Coalition?

I've often talked about people who are on the wrong side of history. Homophobes definitely qualify. Imagine it's the future and one of these morons is your grandmother. I'm guessing you'd try and destroy any evidence of their racism to save your family honor. It would be the equivalent of finding a pamphlet in the garage with grandpa wearing a Nazi uniform. Yeah, it's going to get pretty fucking embarrassin ...

Careful what you wish for, Christian Soldier!

The 'War on Christmas' is making everyone who fights for the promulgation of Christianity a little bit crazy. The latest story comes from Washington State, where a lawsuit was filed that allows distinct religious symbols to be displayed. After a bunch of Christians and Jews put up their decorations, it's now the turn of atheists to display their faith, and they have erected a sign that says There is no God, ...

Black rapper calling the kettle gay

Alright, I admit the title doesn't make much sense; that is, until you realize it's about rapper Trick Trick and his self title song which threatens openly gay celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres to send a "scud missile right through their fucking cruise ship". Here's a highly enlightened quote from him: "I don't want your faggot money any g**damn way. I don't like it. Carry that sh*t somewhere else." It's jus ...

You gotta see this…

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how bigotry, homophobia, and racism are often hidden in plain sight, often under the guise of religious faith. This video should galvanize any American to take the issue of Prop.8 very seriously, and how religion is attempting to usurp the rights of others in order to fulfill their dogmatic convictions. ...

Holy shit…

Words alone cannot describe how fucking stupid this woman is. I'm angry enough that she would so poorly mask her racism in supposed concern over Obama's religious beliefs, without compounding how little she understands her own ignorance. ...

Gay author not welcome in N.B. school

There's a stealthy new form of racism these days. It's often so invisible that to the untrained eye, it goes completely unnoticed. This bigotry often mascarades as politeness and false concern, and I believe we've been letting people get away with it for far too long. Take for example, the recent news story about Alex Sanchez, a gay author whose address to students at Charlotte County high school was cancel ...

Anti-Muslim flyer offends everyone…(almost)

REVISION: I'd like to start off by saying I was entirely wrong about the intent of this flyer when I originally wrote this article. I first thought this (a flyer which appeared in George Washington University) was just another example of anti-Muslim propaganda, and failed to notice its over the top nature screamed satire. The problem, I have now come to realize, is such a flyer is entirely within the realm ...
