  • Obama Governs Like Bush on Reproductive Rights

    The Obama administration overturned the FDA's recommendation for women of all ages to have access to Plan B and restricted Plan B only to those at least 15 years of age with a photo ID. This is the kind of move we've come to expect from the red-staters...

  • Jason Collins Shook a Few Bigots Out of the Homophobe Tree

    Jason Collins made his big “I'm gay” announcement last week. Big news like this can't help but be met with a vocal minority of the religious-minded seeing this as a “test” from the man upstairs, and the only way they'll pass is by letting their...

  • "Coexist" Bumper Stickers Are Actually Intolerant

    On the surface, it seems like a sentiment I should agree with: “Can't we all put aside our religious differences and get along?” But what happens when you put anything on a bumper sticker is that you remove the suggestive tone and make it a command...

  • Please Stop Believing

    I like to think of myself as an equal-opportunity offender, that all religions are just different sides of the same million-or-so-headed coin to me. The specifics of what ancient person has what magic power according to whatever secret text is simply a...

  • Zealots with Nukes


    While most of the recent “crazy person with nukes” talk has been focused on the husky little crackpot in North Korea, there's another bit of backyard-underground-bunker-scare inducement that deserves some notice: the nuclear proliferation going on in...

    The new movie 'Room 237,' which explores all the crackpot theories on what Kubrick's 'The Shining' is about, sums up just about everything in religion. In it, nuts search for a hidden message that Kubrick is trying to deliver to a small group of...

  • The Bible Is Nothing but Fan Fiction for Jesus

    What doesn't make sense is that some of the accounts of Jesus are considered truth, while others are deemed apocryphal. The original gospels were written down centuries after the events described, so it's not as if one has true boots-on-the-ground...

  • Young People Still Suck

    It isn't hard to see which way the winds are blowing regarding gay marriage. All you need is a second-grade reading comprehension and a very simple understanding of statistics.

  • Meet Frank

    Rejoice! The new pope is a man of the people! He famously cooks his own meals, rides the bus to work, and lives in a single apartment rather than in the palace befitting an archbishop. These are all good things! But there's also this...

  • Religiosity Is Killing in Mississippi

    Fifty-eight percent of Mississippi's residents describe themselves as “very religious.” The state also lays claim to both the highest teen birthrate and the highest HIV rate in young adults. In this experience we call life, there are plenty of...

  • Religion Can Ruin Your Heroes

    The problem with Jim Miller's comment about gays never being accepted in NFL locker rooms pisses me off not just because it's an asinine way of thinking, but because he's ruined any goodwill I felt about the 2001 Chicago Bears.

  • Whoever Wins, We Lose

    Being deep enough into Catholicism to the point where you can be considered to lead the church means not being too forward-thinking. In fact, let's take a gander at the top five candidates—according to, of course, a betting website—and see what they...
