Religious conservative “morals” are anything but

Here we have two stories that perfectly sum up the fucked-up values of America's religious conservatives. Let's start with this: Republicans Are Pissed About Crackdowns on Vaccine Exemptions The fight against measles in a handful of states is facing staunch opposition from Republicans and anti-vaxx parents as lawmakers crack down on exemptions that let kids...

Namaste, my ass.

Science!  Thank goodness we have these people around to explain in sooooper technical terms just what's wrong with all those homos in the world.  It was so obvious. Paranormal Organization Claims Gay Men are Possessed by Female Ghosts According to a paranormal organization 85% of all gay men aren’t really gay, they’re just possessed by female ghosts...

Such an imagination we have…

Now, this is the way to scare the shit out of people and make them do what you say.  Some of these would look right at home in John Carpenter's "The Thing." THE DEVIL AND HIS SERVANTS: DEMONIC ILLUSTRATIONS FROM 18TH CENTURY OCCULT BOOK With the warning “NOLI ME TANGERE” (“Do Not Touch”) on its... Continue Reading →

Shoot, die, pray, repeat

Not exactly subtle, is it? My thoughts exactly.  We're reaping what they have sown, and all they can do is say they're praying for the victims...which does absolutely nothing except make you look compassionate and feel good about yourself. Look, I'm atheist but I get it.  I know that many people feel that the only thing... Continue Reading →

Maybe there’s hope for the Vatican after all

Well that's a nice change from the usual Vatican line.  Of course they're still going to think gay folks (and the divorced) should feel guilty for being chock-full of sin, but it's a teensy bit better than what we're used to hearing.  The cynical side of me thinks it might just be a little PR...

Your life, your choice

This is pretty interesting:  California just legalized assisted suicide for "mentally competent adults who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and face the expectation that they will die within six months."  It's an important choice to be able to make, as well as an extremely personal one.  And Governor Brown didn't make this decision lightly. After struggling,... Continue Reading →

No, that new fossil discovery doesn’t prove your Bible stories are true

"Share this post on Facebook and Twitter because this is a huge discovery that goes against the conventional wisdom of our anti-Christian society." Pardon my Esperanto, but this "anti-Christian society" stuff is utter horseshit.  They're actually turning people away from Christianity with this kind of nonsense. It's so entertaining when religious folks try to use scientific... Continue Reading →

The Pope does the unspeakable!

Holy shit, this will be fascinating to watch:   the Pope is actually calling on churches to help the poor and needy -- you know, like actual servants of the community -- or cough up some taxes like the rest of us.  Apparently many churches in Europe are making money by renting out their spaces,...

If you’re an atheist, don’t let the assholes silence you

I agree with some of what this guy says about today's atheist movement.  There are a lot of angry, bitter, even hateful atheists out there who are relentlessly vocal on social media.  (I've written dozens of pissy posts about Christians and their antics, but I don't think they were hateful.  Well, maybe a couple.)  But the presence of Asshole Atheists shouldn't cause one...
