Unwanted Children at the Border and the Evil Legacy of Catholicism

A major immigrant crisis is brewing along the Mexico-US border where thousands of children are crossing without their parents, fleeing what seems like gang warfare. According to some estimates, nearly 70,000 people have died recently in Mexico as a result of drug-related conflict. While we must not diminish the importance of US foreign…

New Novel with Atheist Theme

I'd like to share the news that my novel, "The Holy Family," is now available in paperback and digital editions.

Dale McGowan, author of the forthcoming "Atheism for Dummies," had this to say about "The Holy Family": "'The Holy Family' is a rich and engrossing story, elegant and moving. Though it…

Game over folks if you vote for those freaks.. nah mean!?



BATON ROUGE, La. -- Speculation that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is on Republican Mitt Romney's short list of potential vice presidential candidates is drawing new scrutiny to his decades-old writing about an exorcist-type act he claims to have watched as a college student.



Political analysts say Romney, who rarely mentions his own Mormon faith in public, might be hesitant to pick Jindal as a…

It's quite simple in regards to Romney's past. (Hid from Vietnam w/Mormon mission in France!?)

Ah the old smoke and mirrors through faith-fronting-corporate offshore stuff has never been so clear aye?

Religious Thinking and Simple Minds

Don't blame "god's children"...

I've been reading a series of books by David Weber called the Safehold series.  Weber is an interesting writer.  I'm not really a "fan" as in I adore his works and all that but his books do keep one busy.  The plot of Safehold is complicated.  It begins eight hundred years before the main part of the story gets underway at a time the human race was at war with a race called the Gbaba that was determined to extinguish humanity from the universe.  Humanity was loosing the war.  As a last ditch…

Mother Teresa - a fraudulent fundamentalist fanatic

Harsh words indeed.

A classic piece of Hitch-slap!

Hitch will be missed. I hope he stays with us, as productively and healthily, as he possibly can.

My Atheism Doesn’t Need Evolution

Atheists are often portrayed as die hard believers in evolution, and atheism is quite often portrayed as being dependent upon believing in the validity of evolution. But you know what? Some people, such as myself, did not need to rely on Darwin to steer our courses off the path of religion and onto the path of reason.

 

Consider:

 

The bible was not created by a god nor inspired by the word of any god. It was written by a number of people who tried…

Valid and Invalid Beliefs: The Pope and Other Carlatans

Over the past week I have engaged a number of christians on Twitter, and it seems as though evidence for beliefs, and specifically, what is it that makes beliefs valid or invalid. So I want to address directly the nature of valid and invalid beliefs, and then would like to shift my focus to one tweeter in particular and the pope and some comments he recently made.



Because christians and atheists always seem to start running into problems here, each criticizing the other of not having… Continue

The Time Has Come: Put catholics in Their Place

On July 1, 2011, Dalton McGuinty, the Premier of Ontario, announced that starting in Spetember, catholic schools would no longer be allowed to prohibit the formation of gay-straight alliances by students. In an address by a Member of Provincial Parliament, Glenn Murray (Toronto Center), read a statement from the Premier during Toronto’s Pride Week. The statement read, “Starting in September, it will be students, not principals or school boards, that will decide whether a school has an LGBT… Continue

Even More catholic Whining

Back on June 13, 2011, I wrote the blog post More catholic Whining, in which I described the situations happening in some States like New York and Illinois, involving certain catholic charities having issues with their states making it illegal to discriminate against straight couples in common law relationships and to discriminate against gay couples when providing fostering and adoption services. Now I thought this story was…

Fullmetal atheist's "imagene no religion..." part one: no holocaust

Before Hitler came to power the Catholic Church spread anti-Jewish remarks. They spread hate agents Jews saying that they killed Jesus. This is not the act of just one crazy pope but a ton of popes over a long period of time. All the religious lies and hate piled up. Then a large depression came to… Continue

The Reverend John J. Raphael: Hypocrite!

This one has been kicking around in the back of my skull for nearly a year. I thought it would slip away like other stupid issues, but this one one kept coming back as I found it repeated at other locations. Finally, I felt it necessary to at least rebut the wet-dreams of a Catholic idiot.

As a newspaper reporter I developed the terse style…

National Day of Prayer spreading like a virus to other countries

Not sure how sharing a candy bar makes you want to have a Prayer Day, but now it's in place in the Federated States of Micronesia, who has had a close tie with the US since World War II, and is very religious, although not as diverse as the US (Roman Catholic 50%, Protestant 47%, other 3%).

"[President] Mori explained he was inspired to create this day for FSM after attending the 2007 Annual National Prayer Breakfast at the White House in…

The Jews Killed Jesus - Christianity's Biggest Lie?

i was just watching this video on youtube, "the hidden jesus" where a christian theologian explores other religions with stories similar to the jesus story.


what got my attention was in part six where he makes the claim that "for the last 2000 years christianity and judaism have been at war over jesus. why? because of what some consider christianity's biggest lie."…

no one expects the spanish inquisition!!!

not sure anyone is interested in this or not, but i stumbled across a multi-episode documentary from canada on the inquisition. it's kinda low budget, but still interesting.



the first episode is a little slow, but episode 2 and 3 are good.



it really gets me pissed off at points... torturing and killing people for nothing.

and occasionally there is a catholic priest who makes some comment like "well, we have to take these things in context of the society at that… Continue
