Doctors refused life saving abortion because “it’s a Catholic country”

Ireland may be quickly de-converting to atheism faster than any other country, but that certainly doesn't mean the fight against superstition and religious indoctrination is over. If anything, the stakes have gotten higher, especially when it comes to certain key issues which don't seem to go away. A young woman by the name of Savita Halappanavar was told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pai ...

Shocking: Atheist kids dare to express themselves

If you've never heard of The Blaze (like probably 99% of the population), it's a creation of Glenn Beck and his conservative production company, Mercury Radio Arts (the irony of naming your production company after a metal that makes one insane is probably lost on these people). If the site isn't regularly scaring people into buying gold, it feeds them pseudo information that plays into people's fears and p ...

The Internet forgets nothing, and sometimes that sucks

I'm all for expressing one's opinion (I wouldn't be doing this web shit if I didn't), but I feel it's my duty to remind young people that the Internet never forgets, and it has a tendency to shame your ass whenever you say something stupid. Do you honestly think the opinions you express as a teenager will carry on to adulthood? I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm kind of glad the Internet and its am ...

Help strip politically bent religious institutions of their tax exempt status

Remember a few weeks back when over 1000 preachers openly defied the IRS and began politically endorsing Mitt Romney? Well, it certainly wasn't the first time these guys broke the law, and it certainly won't be the last. This stunt was in an effort to repeal a law that until now, the IRS has refused to enforce. Gutsy, this was not. "Pulpit Freedom Sunday" has been staged annually since 2008 by a group calle ...

New South Wales Premier OKs inquiry into clergy abuse

Tell me if this doesn't sound like a kick ass movie: a police detective -convinced the police force has been helping clergy cover up sexual abuse- sends a letter to the premier urging him to open an investigation into the whole affair. If it wasn't actually happening in New South Wales, I'd think maybe it was a cheesy John Grisham novel. Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox (sounds like a movie name, right?) ...

Beck wants you to become a Pilgrim

With conservatives still freaking out over the fact their president is still black, you can expect some of the nuttier flavors of the Religious Right to step up their rhetoric. Glenn Beck, straight off his prediction God had promised the White House to a Mormon, has advised his aged listeners that the world will soon end, and their only recourse is to buy plenty of farmland and guns. Inflation is coming, th ...

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 ...

Bible Stories Pre-Order

Packages E-Book $10.00 CAD Why Write This Book? Have you ever been told that you needed to 'read the Bible' for moral and spiritual guidance? Odds are the person who told you this never read it themselves. In 2007, USA Today reported over 60% of Americans couldn't name more than 5 of the 10 Commandments, while nearly half of students thought Sodom and Gomorrah were a married couple. Clearly, it isn't famili ...

Contraception is a gateway drug to abortion!

Catholics are hilarious. It's been 60 years since the invention of the pill, and these dinosaurs are still trying to argue that it's the most evil invention since the guillotine. Abortion and birth control are two sides of the same coin. The currency of which is the prevention and/or the destruction of nascent human life. While some forms of contraception, such as the condom or the diaphragm, are not themse ...
