All opposed to religious influence in politics, say “Nay” and be ignored

It doesn't matter how loud you scream in your opposition to religion being intertwined with politics. The decision has already been made. For those of you who thought perhaps the Democratic party had finally woken up to the idea that us 'nones' are an important enough minority that our desire to have a true separation of church and state would influence their policy. We were tantalized with the possibility ...

Rev. Benedict Groeschel apologizes for brief moment of honesty.

Every once in while, a church leader will say something he actually thinks, and we're given a snapshot into the mental lives of priests. As most of you can guess, it isn't usually a pretty picture: religions are an old boys' club that places fraternity over morality. This has allowed an institution like the Catholic Church to continue to harbor and defend child rapists. Even if you've never forced yourself ...

Walmart greeter takes time from work to tell you about burning in hellfire

Don't you love it when Christians make creepy videos telling you the 'good news' that you're a sinning piece of filth who doesn't even deserve God's awesome love? Here's a Walmart greeter to tell you that you don't have to spend forever in torment if you just accept that a 2000 year old Palestinian Jew of questionable historical merit was the creator of the cosmos.

Pope’s butler faces jail time for leaked memos

OK, so remember how the US finally jailed their first priest for covering up sexual abuse? We all felt as though this was a positive sign of things to come, didn't we? Well, as great as that felt, it seems as though justice is slow in coming to the Vatican. Jailing the Pope's butler for leaking damning memos demonstrating the extent of corruption is a bigger priority for these fuckers. Pope Benedict XVI's b ...

Papacy finally OKs condom use

It was only a matter of time before the millions of African men, women, and children slowly dying of AIDS would shame the Catholic Church into changing its stance on condom use. In a new book set to be released, based on conversations with the Pope, Benedict said in some cases, using a piece of rubber on your dick would not make God angry. When he was asked if his church was against condom use, he said: “It ...

Shut up, you big meany faces!

Here's another "hey, atheists are being mean and should stop" article from someone clearly annoyed that people on Reddit have less than kind things to say about religion. If you want to find out why I call these guys Reddit Atheists, take a brief dip into the atheism subreddit. It is a place entirely defined by bitter, faux-enlightened young people sharing “thought-provoking” images about the horrific evils ...

Remember these whackos?

Remember these guys? The Heaven's Gate people had a penchant for Nikes and a pretty unhealthy obsession with the Hale-Bopp Comet. In total, 39 poor saps took their own lives, convinced that doing so would ensure their safe passage aboard a spaceship trailing the comet. After they purchased alien abduction insurance (the logic of this still baffles me) from Lloyd's of London, they prepared a weird mixture of ...
