Less than a week until nothing out of the ordinary happens. Poll: How will rapturites react?

How will Rapturites respond when Sunday, May 22 rolls around and nothing in the world has changed? Will they claim that their great faith saved the world, that the Rapture in fact DID occur – we just don’t realize it, that Harold Camping – the man behind this Rapture campaign – forgot to carry a … Continue reading

Bring your gun to Church, because God’s not gonna save you

Ye of little faith… The Arkansas House approved a bill allowing concealed handguns in churches. The bill, which passed on a 57-to-42 vote and now heads to the Senate, removes churches and other houses of worship from the list of places where concealed handguns are banned. Currently, the only private entities where concealed weapons are … Continue reading

Stephen Colbert: The worst offender against Christianity is God

This is a must-watch Colbert clip. In it, Colbert addresses the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s anti-religion and pro-reason sign at the Washington state Capitol in Olympia, the resolution requiring the Kentucky state Department of Homeland Security’s to display a plaque claiming that “the safety and security of the commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon … Continue reading

Westboro Baptist Church lunatics Rick Roll’d!

Moreover, they celebrate … Continue reading

God is Dying in Canada

One could say that God is dying in Canada, as well as many other places.

Ben Stein and Glenn Beck: Ignorance, Deceit and Stupidity, OH MY!

Nothing I say short of quoting them directly could prepare you for the profound levels of ignorance you are about to hear. Stein and Beck’s ignorance of and/or deliberate deceit with respect to science, evolution, atheism and morality are absolutely depressing. They are an unfortunate pair of exemplars of the intellectual dysfunction that dogmatism – … Continue reading
