TGA Podcast: Episode 74

Welcome back to another episode. Ryan is leaving for almost a month, so this is the last show he'll be doing for a while. This week, we talk about the War on Christmas, how Christians are trying to force an atheist councilman out of office in North Carolina, and how insane Scientology is (you'll need to listen to find out how much)! With the holidays coming up, podcast production may dip a little, so if you ...

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, ...

Worst economic theory…ever

Here's a quote to stick on your fridge: It has been my view that the steady secularizing and insistent effort at [sic] dereligioning America has been dangerous. That danger flashed red in the fall into subprime personal behavior by borrowers and bankers, who after all are just people. Northerners and atheists who vilify Southern evangelicals are throwing out nurturers of useful virtue with the bathwater of ...

Shitty journalist thinks ‘militant atheism’ must be fought

How to spot a poorly written article about atheism. (1) The words 'fundamentalist' or 'militant' are used in the article without any real justification (i.e., do these words have the same meaning for our religious counter-parts, I wonder) (2) 'Atheistic' regimes are blamed for the worst human rights offenses (3) We're told that secularism is an imposition rather than redressing a clear inequity. It's clear ...

My head hurts now

I know I shouldn't watch any Fox News stuff involving everyone's favorite airhead, but anytime I see a headline like "America declares War on Christianity", I can't help myself. Here's a little piece of advice from your friendly neighbors up North: stop calling all conflicts "war". It's insanely dangerous rhetoric, and you devalue the meaning of the word when it comes to the "horror" of Christmas parades be ...

Tim Minchin learns a valuable lesson

Some of you might already be aware Tim Minchin wrote an atheist Christmas song for a charity CD, and the proceeds went to the Salvation Army. Pharyngula wrote that he was disappointed that Tim would support such a corrupt organization, but to be fair, it looks like he was unaware the money would be going to these homophobic douchebags. Regardless, he decided not to make a big deal of it, and the whole thing ...

Nativity scene win

I don't know what's more awesome; the fact this couple felt it was a good idea to depict their dog as the Messiah, or the hilarious look on the poor pup's face which says either "get me out of here", or "kill me now". Looks like I have a new picture to use for Christmas cards next year... (from my new obsession of the day, Awkward Family Photos) ...

Chuck Norris is insane

Before he can become "President of Texas", Chuck Norris is on an anti-abortion campaign. He regularly blogs for the ultra conservative World Net Daily, and reading his posts is an exercise in both patience and a form of torture in some countries. In his latest opus, Chucky takes on health care reform, lambasting Democrats for trying to provide abortion services to women in need. He's not cool with that idea ...

God might be all powerful, but his wallet isn’t

I've always been both repulsed and annoyed at the way religious organizations exploit the poor. How many times have I seen or read of preachers pressuring their flock to give when their own cupboards are empty? Too many to count I imagine.  Elder Lynn G. Robbins is a businessman and high ranking member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints. He wrote an article a while back calling on the destitute to obey the ...
