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 ...

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 ...

Pope attempts to recruit German bigots

Over the weekend, the Pope arrived in Germany on a tour designed to try and recruit Protestants and other estranged Christians who have grown tired of their religion's increasing acceptance of homosexual marriage. Knowing, too, the value of family and marriage, we as Christians attach great importance to defending the integrity and the uniqueness of marriage between one man and one woman from any kind of mi ...

Evangelicals starting to question Adam and Eve

About 40% of adults in America believe that Adam and Eve existed. This means that almost half of your population is functionally retarded. And you wonder why your economy is tanking... In an effort not to ignore scientific truth forever, some evangelicals are starting to question the existence of Adam and Eve in order to finally catch up to the rest of us who have embraced the methodology of science. They n ...

I get mail

A fan of the show sent me this letter: I recently observed a “lunch-table” debate regarding religion, which I thought had a slightly different twist on morals. The debate quickly heated between a Muslim woman and a Christian man over why hard alcohol cannot be purchased on Sundays. The Muslim women, seeming a lot more level-headed, asked how this was not an affront to the separation of church and state. Thi ...

S.E. Cupp is annoying

It's funny whenever a non-believer states plainly no evidence exists that would satisfy the "God question", we're accused of being snobs, elitists, mean, or even fundamentalists. Have you noticed no one seems to accuse us of of having the weaker argument or of being wrong. Instead, we're vilified as being "spiritual buzzkills". I've long had doubts about S.E. Cupp's atheism, if only because she seems to lac ...

Being Black and Gay sucks

If you're black and gay, you have my pity. I can't imagine a minority group so vehemently opposed to homosexuality. They often make the sermons of white Alabama preachers seem almost tame by comparison. It's no secret as a group, African Americans are more religiously conservative than the average American. Since many believe in the literal word of God, it doesn't leave a lot of room for tolerance and under ...

Jehovah Witness family abandons 5 year old son after blood transfusion

I'm not a parent, so it's difficult for me to comprehend what it feels like to actually have to take care of one of these screaming whelps. As far as I can tell, they smell, they cry and jump around a lot, and when they get older, they get all "angsty" and totally hate your guts. I've been told, however, the experience is rewarding enough to put up with the mega hassle. One thing I do know for certain is yo ...

Don’t leave Bibles hanging around!

In the 1920's, an Anglican minister left a translated Bible on the small and remote Belcher Islands, located in Hudson Bay, Canada. The islands are fairly remote, and the local Inuit population rarely interacted with the rest of the northern population. In the 1940's, a string of murders occured, and when the police investigated further, they learned that the otherwise peaceful island had been swamped with ...

Our Webs are under Attack!

Australia, be warned! It seems as though the latest efforts of your country's atheists have attracted the attention of theologically minded hackers. The Global Atheist Convention's website has been flooded, and the Atheist Foundation of Australia's site was attacked also. It's not known who is doing this exactly, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was some religious nutbag hoping to prevent people from atten ...
