Despite Opposition from Its Leaders, a Catholic Church Ends Up on “George Carlin Way,” At Least for Now

In 2012, Kevin Bartini began a petition to name a New York City street -- the one George Carlin lived on -- after the famed comedian who died in 2008:
That idea didn't go over so well with the local Catholic leaders because there's a church on that street and Carlin was no fan of religion:

About Those Churches That Prayed for LeBron James to Stay in Miami…

Now that LeBron James has announced his return to Cleveland with an enthusiastic "I’m not promising a championship," I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of the Miami-based churches that were praying for LeBron to stay in South Beach using the hashtag #BandsForBron:

Liveblogging TAM2014: Day 1 Recap

Greetings from sunny (presumably. I haven't been outside in two days) Las Vegas! I'm here at The Amazing Meeting 2014 with my trusty sidekick/photographer/gentleman friend Michael Greiff to live blog as much as the event as possible. While I'm here, I will also be recording a few Hemant-less (boo!) episodes of the Friendly Atheist Podcast. Yesterday (Thursday) was our first day here, and between trying to schedule interviews and getting settled, we were able to attend one of the workshops. I dropped into the "Blogging and Skepticisim: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" workshop featuring the fine folks over at Skeptic Ink, and it was really delightful. Speakers inclded Beth Ann Erickson, Vandy Beth Glenn, Wendy Hughes, Jacques Rousseau and a fourth person whose name isn't in the program and I don't remember because I'm terrible at my job.

Pot, Meet Kettle: Mark Regnerus Says Study Showing Same-Sex Couples Produce Happier Kids Has Methodological Flaws

Mark Regnerus, the Christian sociologist infamous for a miserably flawed study about LGBT parents, is upset.
He's upset because earlier this month, researchers from the University of Melbourne in Australia released the world's largest study of same-sex parents and their kids. The study found that on certain measures, children of same-sex couples seemed better off than children of different-sex couples. Regnerus disagrees with those findings, as his own study will tell you. And he's upset that we're not as outraged as he is.

Hmmm...Your server move is not quite done yet, but I got a mail back from Samuel Krause. He must have sent this to many folks, but I'm putting it up on my profile page in case anyone wants a gander.

Enjoyed reading the post "When prayer doesn't work."

Okay, I'm a happy go lucky kind of guy. I'd rather hug than anything, so I suppose I am "friendly" in a creepy sort of way?
