Proposition 8 & the Sickness of Christianity

November 17th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This post grows out of an email exchange with a good friend.  Although he and I differ dramatically in our views relating to religion, he’s still a good friend.  (Heck, my two closest friends both hold rather dramatically different views from those I hold!  One is night to my day on religion; the other is […]

Christian Coalition Rejects Jesus’ Teaching

November 28th, 2006 · No Comments

And so the Christian Coalition finally comes clean. “Don’t give us any of that Jesus shit,” they say. Joel C. Hunter was to become the next President of the Christian Coalition. But, apparently, he’s too enamored of Jesus’ teachings for the Christian Coalition. They’ll have nothing to do with him…or Him. And so, Hunter has […]

God: Enemy of Society?

August 19th, 2006 · No Comments

Well, this article — God would be an atheist: Why can’t we all be Japanese? — pretty much says what I’ve been saying for a long time now. The only difference is someone actually did the study to back it up. All believers learn that God holds them responsible for their actions. So far so […]

This Post Is Not About Gay Clergy

August 4th, 2006 · No Comments

I’m not totally sure where to put this one. A friend writes about the recent reports of a man who is defending himself against charges of sexually assaulting young boys who have physical or mental handicaps. My friend says, This is what happens when Pandora’s Box is opened. This is one of the major arguments […]

Insanity & Religion

June 24th, 2006 · 22 Comments

The longer I live, the more I think of religion and religious belief as a horrid and horrible form of insanity. We live in a country where, unfortunately, we have to legislate a lot of things that seem obvious because people make such poor choices in life. — Ande Beckstrand, mother of four, quoted in […]

Proving the Existence of God

June 5th, 2006 · No Comments

By the way, in case you missed it: Irrefutable proof that God exists. Why would I say that proves God exists? Because everything proves He exists, you moron! Just ask someone who believes in the power of prayer!

Cause of Death: G-d

January 6th, 2006 · No Comments

Apparently, the only people who die these days are people G-d hates. How do I know this? Because Pat Robertson said so. As some of our more astute readers — you two know who you are — are aware, Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon recently had a stroke and is said to be in a […]

Yes, I’m Defending President Bush, Sort Of

December 7th, 2005 · No Comments

The other day, in “Butt-kickin’ Christians,” I wrote about the fundamentalist “christian” movement targeting stores like, well, Target, for presumably not doing their god-given duties with respect to evangelism. Nevermind that such stores don’t have a god-given duty to evangelize. Jerry Falwell and his ilk will brook no excuses based on the idea that Target […]

God Sued Over Intelligent Design Flaws

May 11th, 2005 · 3 Comments

He doesn’t except it from what? I’ve recently been accused of being a bigot because I think the fact that the bigotry of the theocratic conservative right — which as near as anyone can tell consists almost entirely of Republicans — is a natural result of their being poor and uneducated. This was despite the […]

Religion and Logic in Politics

May 2nd, 2005 · 2 Comments

Studying for finals has essentially necessitated neglecting the blog. I still get emails, though, and I realized that my response to one today would substitute quite nicely for a blog article. It would also allow the possibility for others to join in the debate instead of keeping all the fun between myself and my friend, […]
