For the last time, Atheism is not a religion

Religious people just don't get it, do they? They think when we talk about the belief in God we are in fact acknowledging 'his' existence, and that our own struggle against the brutalizing influence of religion is itself a kind of faith. It's enough to make your head want to burst. Especially frustrating are these kind of lazy atheist hit pieces; brave articles that refuse to allow a comment section out of ...

‘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 ...

FFRF sues IRS for failing to enforce tax-exempt rules for religion

Now that the election is over and President Obama no longer has to be afraid of Evangelicals bent on his destruction, it's time to put aside petty politics and enforce the law in regards to religious institutions and their supposed neutrality when it comes to politics. We all know countless religious organizations have been violating the rules of their tax-exempt status, which stipulates pastors are not all ...

This is what you get for mixing religion and politics…

One of the most aneurysm-inducing quotes of 2012 had to be faux-atheist S.E. Cupp's comment that she would never vote for an atheist president. Believing she had a point by saying she couldn't trust anyone who didn't have God as a moral compass, what Cupp and her similarly minded ilk fail to realize, however, is that beliefs predicated on violent nonsense have the tendency to reflect Bronze Age barbarism. M ...

Mother’s letter to atheist son shows the divisive power of religion

Here's a tragic example of what happens when your loved ones are ensnared in the clutches of religious dogma: My Darling Son David, You are so very special to me and have always been the love of my life. I used to think when you were little that I would die for you, and live because of you. You meant the world to me and I will always love you very much. Because of this love I always wanted you to have the h ...

Another shitty article about how atheism is a religion (or just as bad as one)

Articles that are critical of religion are divided into two main categories: those that claim atheism is a religion, or those that claim we're just as bad as one. This article differs only slightly from this pathetic formula, accusing us of only focusing on the three big Abrahamic religions and somehow forgetting all of the other peddlers of nonsense. So it rightly criticises creationism and ‘intelligent de ...

Exposing the bigotry of religion makes us bullies, apparently

What happens when your privileged place in society begins to erode? Well, like a spoiled child, you relentlessly accuse others of being mean bullies for not letting them have their way. It takes time to become an adult, but expecting religion to mature is unrealistic. Take Matt Barber: He's accusing secularists of being "bullies", and his solution is playground fare: punch them in the mouth, Christians! How ...

Do we need religion to be a moral society?

Honestly, this is a silly question. It would be more accurate to ask "can we still be a moral society despite religion's influence?" Let's remember for a moment the world is still made a more miserable place because of sectarian infighting. How many regions of the world are currently engaged in immoral acts of violence against one another specifically in the name of their religion? When the Catholic bishop ...

Some people take that Religion shit pretty seriously…

You never know how some religious nutjobs are going to react. That's a life lesson Jerry Andrews is still pondering about, having recently been shot by his co-worker Dale O'Callaghan. Seems as though Dale may not have had much of a sense of humor about his faith. His sore spot happened to be a certain Harold Camping failed Rapture prediction that was greatly anticipated (and like with most believers, probab ...

Doug Stanhope on religion

Of course, you can guess that plenty of people in the YouTube comment section tried to suggest that Hitler and his Nazis were atheists. It seems irrelevant to them that the slogan of the SS was "God with Us", or that Nazi Germany was officially a Catholic state thanks to a treaty with the Vatican. Don't you just love this kind of denial? ...
