Christian Mysogyny: Alive And Well In America

It is a fact that if you tell someone for a long enough period of time that they are inferior, then they will come to believe it of themselves.  In modern psychology, treatment is available for people with an inferiority complex. Through therapy, the patient can regain their sense of self-worth and equality and re-emerge…

Fox’s Fight For Faux Freedom

In November, elections for 36 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate are going to be held and the Republicans are trying every trick in the book to get as many seats as possible, which is expected.  However, the right wing nut jobs are really piling it on.  Chicken Little has been promoted…

Against Abortion? Then Don’t Have One…

Before my inbox gets filled with reminders that I said I would not write about this ever again, it should be known that I am writing about it again because my inbox was filled by people asking me to.  Abortion is a subject that I rarely touch upon because, as I have stated, I do…

Resurrection: The Oldest Urban Legend

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the Christian high holy day that has been set aside to celebrate the resurrection of their god-born savior, a tenet which is central to their faith. If there were no resurrection, the human sacrifice known as the crucifixion would be the end of a failed mission. The cycle of…

None So Blind As The Holy See

Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen told his Australian congregation that atheism is not the rational philosophy that it claims to be. He gave an oxymoronic Easter address where he said that Christianity has proved to be both vulnerable and hardy in the last century.  He stated, “Last century we tried godlessness on a grand scale and…

Prohibition on Marijuana – Legislative Fail

There is legislation in California that is aimed at making the recreational and personal use of marijuana legal for anyone over twenty-one years.  Medical use of marijuana has been legal in eight states since 2001 and in California there are stores where you can bring a state-approved medical marijuana prescription card and buy your weed,…

Pondering Profound Passover Problems

The Passover Holidays are upon us, so what better time than now to explain how the entire tale of the Exodus was logistically impossible.  Of course, modern archaeology provides enough evidence that almost the entirety of the Jewish biblical history was fabricated, so let’s go with what the bible says.  Even if a “miracle of…

You just can’t trust those homosexuals

On Thursday, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the Pentagon will start to ease its enforcement of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy prohibiting homosexuals from serving openly in the military. Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway says he wants to avoid housing homosexual soldiers with heterosexual soldiers.  He stated, “I would not ask our Marines…

Christians Are Better off Dead

This is not my point of view, but that of an educated Theologian. Early this morning eleven people lost their lives in what is being touted as the worst wreck that Kentucky has seen in over two decades.  A tractor trailer operated by Hester, Inc., out of Fayette, Alabama, crossed the a median and smashed…

The American Taliban Strikes Again

We read about political violence every single day in third world countries.  One faction rises up when another one is elected into office or when an unpopular law is put on the books.  We have gotten used to these reports and have even come to expect them from certain countries.  Reporters expounding on death threats…

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

I don’t often write environmental pieces.  It’s not that I don’t care about the environment.  I am very concerned about the planet, actively recycle and end up in some rather heated debates with certain people who would just let the earth suffer a slow death because they believe that “any time now” god is going…

This Is What Change Looks Like

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the health care reform bill at a vote of 219 in favor and 212 opposed. More on that in a minute.  It was a tense night for me.  Even my teenagers were watching the last few hours with me. For me, well, I was glued to C-Span pretty…

Pedophilia and the Catholic Church

Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday he is “truly sorry” for the abuse suffered by victims at the hands of Catholic priests in Ireland. He addressed the church abuse crisis an 18-page letter and it is going to be read in churches across Ireland on Sunday.  He says he is “deeply disturbed by the information which…

The Evolution of Morality

In my travels across the unending reaches of the ether, I communicate with a vast amount of people from different walks of life and worldviews.  Outside of my sphere of like-minded friends and acquaintances, most of the people I deal with have, to one degree or another, a belief in the supernatural.  They believe in…
