As A Liberal Atheist, This Is Why I Choose To Defend Muslims

After recent acts of terrorism around the world by radicalized Muslims, many Americans have responded in the worst possible way. Rather than recognize that these evil individuals represent a small minority out of the 1.6 billion people on this planet who believe in Islam, they’ve chosen to give in to fear and hatred. As an atheist […]

Bobby Jindal Wants To Shut Down The Supreme Court After Marriage Equality Ruling

If you’re a right-wing conservative, today capped off what was a very, very bad week for you. You know what? I kind of feel sorry for you. It must be hard taking so many legal body blows in such a short period, especially for those of you who thought god was on your side. The […]

Rick Santorum’s Plan To Save America: A Christian Theocracy

Saturday, Rick “Don’t Google Me” Santorum spoke to an audience of far-right pastors and activists at the Awakening conference. The conference was organized and sponsored by Liberty University, a “Christian academic community” founded by the late Jerry Falwell in 1971. For those of you too young to remember Falwell, he’s the pastor who blamed the […]

Georgia Children Humiliated For Not Participating In School Prayer

In the 1960s, the Supreme Court ruled that government-sponsored school prayer was unconstitutional. For the last few decades, there’s been a push by Christian conservatives and evangelicals to find ways to get prayer back into classrooms, in complete defiance of the 1st Amendment. Bear in mind that it isn’t prayers from any and all faiths that […]

Mike Huckabee: Obama Is Stomping On Christians

Mike Huckabee appeared on “AFA Today” to chat about his book, Guns, Gravy, Garden Gnomes, and Grappling Hooks, and spent a minute pointing out one of the many problems with the Obama administration. Speaking with Kevin McCullough, host of the American Family Association’s radio program, the former governor was asked why President Obama refuses to […]

Republicans, Here’s the Difference Between Facts vs. Faith

Lately I’ve found myself in more and more of these debates where I’m dealing with people who seem to think “faith” is the same thing as “fact.” And recently during one of these debates with a more moderate individual who followed this flawed doctrine, I was told that we had to “agree to disagree because there’s […]

Alabama Chief Justice Goes Off Against Other Religions in Absurd Anti-Constitutional Rant

While lawyers clearly have the agenda of representing their clients in mind, judges are supposed to be the beacon of impartiality and interpretation of law. They’re not supposed to advocate from the bench based upon their personal opinions, they’re simply supposed to interpret our laws – based on our Constitution. That’s a fact that Alabama’s […]

Republicans Want to Turn the President of the United States into a Preacher

Let’s be honest, if most conservatives had their way this nation would be nothing more than a theocracy run by the Christian religion. In fact, if you ask most Republicans they’ll proudly profess that this nation was founded on Christianity. That’s something I’ve always found baffling considering there’s not a single reference to Christianity, or […]

I Have a Few Words for Justice Antonin Scalia and His Ignorance About the Separation of Church and State

I’m not really sure if there are many people walking this planet who I have such utter disdain for as I do Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He’s an arrogant blowhard who has no business on our Supreme Court. But there he’s been for nearly three decades, since Ronald Reagan appointed him in 1986. He’s a […]

The Truth About Americans and Our Love/Hate Relationship with the Freedom of Speech

In this country, a common narrative on which we claim to pride ourselves is found within our First Amendment and our “freedom of speech.” It’s one of the few things you’ll see both liberals and conservatives claim to value and support. Both sides will tell you that our freedom of speech is one of the […]
