This week, failed presidential candidate and serial philanderer Newt Gingrich opined that “Atheist Philosophy” is the greatest threat to Christianity. It’s so great a threat that not even the chance of being blown up by a terrorist or shot to death by a mass shooter compare.
Ted Cruz is taking aim at same sex marriage, as if married gay people really are the cause of mass shootings.
I’d like to point out that, technically, as marriage is defined in the dictionary, Adam and Eve were never married (if one is to leave out words for which “marriage” is a synonym). They didn’t have a legal or formally recognized union in a personal relationship as we define formal or legal.
But, hold up: the legal definition of marriage is not the same as the biblical definition of marriage. What is the biblical definition of marriage?
You know how to tell if a religion is total bullshit? There are plenty of ways, chief among them a cursory reading of the religion’s holy book. But the most amusing way to arrive at this conclusion is to just listen to the representatives of said religion speak.
Enter Bryan Fischer: radio host, Christian, and dumbfuck extraordinaire. I’m sure you’ve all heard the story of a pastor claiming that Melania Trump requested an exorcism of the White House. If you haven’t, check it out. Cue America’s faction of idiocy, the Christian Right. Continue reading Conservatives and the Art of BS
Hey, its me, Josh.
I haven’t heard from you in a while. In fact, it has been so long, I get the impression you’re avoiding me.
I thought we were close. I thought we had an understanding. That was the whole reason I showed up: so I could understand. But you took my reaching out to you and slapped away my hand, and I just don’t understand why.
Why don’t you love me?
When you realize all the people in the world matter (not just the ones you identify with).
So here’s a thing: atheists who believe in the supernatural.
First, what do you even call an atheist who holds on to beliefs in anything supernatural?
I know the dictionary definition of an atheist is one who lacks a belief in god or gods.
Have you noticed that the US seems to be transforming into a nation of not-very-bright people (we can call them dumbasses, right)?
There is news that should send shivers down your spine like Bill Cosby asking you out for a drink – the establishment of a religious wing of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Health and Human Services, for example – and there is news that should cause you to say aloud in your team meeting, “Dafuq?” Continue reading Ken Ham: “Science Bad, Magic Good” (and other Absurdities)
Dave Daubenmire, prominent conservative podcaster, is sounding the alarm over the infiltration of Jews into the conservative movement.
“The State has essentially established a religious indoctrination program intended to push a single ideological viewpoint. The law is intended to punish women who disagree with this opinion. Missouri’s state-mandated informed consent booklets explicitly say that life begins at conception, which is a nonmedical religious viewpoint that many people disagree with. Forcing women to read this information and then wait 72-hours to consider the State’s opinion is a clear violation of the Establishment Clause.”
So you wake up one Sunday morning, you’re getting yourself ready for church. You’re boasting your Sunday best, and you’re sure you’re going to knock’em dead. Mind you, that’s not why you’re going to church. But, hey, you’re getting dressed up for Jesus Christ, himself, the savior of mankind, the man who died for you. It’s as if every Sunday is your wedding day, and you want to do what you can to make sure you keep the Lord’s eye.
Then it hits you: why am I going to church? Continue reading Breaking up with Jesus
In a perfect world, I’d see the end of all religion. Every last one of them.
We do not live in a perfect world, though, as evidenced by the presidency of Donald Trump, the backwards nature of the United States, and the continued popularity of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Quick aside on that last bit: I’m currently awaiting a Star Trek movie involving the Kardashians as this interstellar species bent on the destruction of the United Federation of Planets. The nerds among you will see where I’m going with this…
As I was saying, we do not live in a perfect world. Continue reading On Killing Religion
