Ultra-Orthodox Jews harass sexually abused girl

It's hard for individuals unfamiliar with Orthodox Jewish culture to fully understand the scope of isolation in that community. For starters, a large number of Orthodox denominations were a direct response to the assimilation of Jews in society near the end of the 19th century. Believing integration with society was leading to impiety, Orthodox Jews adopted a rather extreme position when it comes to the out ...

Bill O’Reilly calls David Silverman a Fascist

You have to admire American Atheist president David Silverman for trying to confront the beast that is Bill O'Reilly on his own show. It's a bit like trying to take on Grendel's mother in her own cave: unless you've got the strength of Beowulf, you're probably going to get chewed up. The problem with appearing on Bill's show is that his interview style goes a little something like this: "Shut up and say exa ...

Hypocrite child actor urges fan not to watch shitty show

You can watch the video above, but I don't recommend you do if you're easily annoyed I can't stand TV sitcoms. Maybe it's the fact their predictability is only surpassed by the insipidness of their jokes. Who knows. Generally speaking I tend to ignore the crap out of them and call it a day. One of the chief perpetrator of nauseating trash on TV is the show Two and a Half Men. You might remember former star ...

Baby boy dies after botched circumcision

Ok, here's the deal, folks; before you read this article, I have to warn you that you're not going to like reading some of the details of this story. I've written a lot about male genital mutilation (colloquially known as 'circumcision') in the past, but for some reason, this one story sent visuals in my head that I can't shake off. So, you've officially been warned. The story begins in Manchester, where a ...

The Salvation Army exec who stole Christmas

I hate the Salvation Army. First off, they aren't a charitable organization. They are registered as a church, which means while some of the money and goods people give to them do go to the needy, they still run it like it is a business, buying expensive real estate, and more importantly, being exempt from needing to show where it uses its money and for what. Don't believe me? Take a look at their mission st ...

I don’t think you’re done reading, pal

Hey look, it's an atheist who converted to religion. All it took for him was: a) To read one book about atheism b) To think that one book would give him the needed skepticism to reject the joke that is C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" c) To stop thinking critically immediately afterwards This guy was seduced by the morality argument? What, the 'feelings' you had couldn't be explained WITHOUT referring to a s ...

Bryan Fischer is a douche-bag

American Evangelical scumbag and radio host Bryan Fisher demonstrates just how much ugly hate he has in his heart by congratulating Uganda on their "Kill the Gays" Bill. Way to illustrate just how fucking backwards this all is, pal. via Christian Nightmares ...

Answers in Genesis writes hilarious letter to atheists

For some odd reason, I love the idea that there are religious believers out there who try to convert atheists back to religion. I can't imagine a more pointless exercise. They really think there must be some magical argument to 'win us' back to the fold. They can't understand our decision not to believe in God is the result of years of slow and gradual change, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the p ...

Don’t believe in God in Kentucky? Get ready for jail time!

It's not enough that religious folks are always shoving their religion down our throats; they also now want to enforce the 'crime' of not believing in their invisible friend. If you can believe this (and trust me, I'm still in shock), the state of Kentucky has effectively declared war on non-believers, threatening jail time for anyone who fails to "recognize the primacy of the Christian God": In Kentucky, a ...

What a textbook in Louisiana looks like

You all know by now that the educational system in Louisiana is rapidly deteriorating thanks to Governor Bobby Jindal and his relentless crusade to institute voucher programs that end up benefiting religiously run schools. He may have come out recently begging for the GOP not to become the 'stupid party', but he's actively working to ensure his constituents are ever more ignorant about the real world. The p ...
