Muslims Protect Christians After Islamist Militants Attack Bus In Kenya

The conservative media has been banging the drums of paranoia and Islamophobia with renewed vigor since the attacks in Paris and California. They have conjured up the ghosts of 9/11, and GOP candidates like Donald Trump have also embraced hatred toward Muslims as part of their political ambitions. Here in the United States, some people […]

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 […]

Louisiana Boy Suspended From Public School For Having Long Hair

Louisiana, especially the rigidly conservative Protestant part of the state from Alexandria northwards, has a real problem with separating church and state. If you have ever spent any time in the state, you’d know what I’m talking about; if you don’t, bear in mind that the governor wanted to slash college funding but keep tax […]

Sen. Tom Cotton On LGBT Rights: ‘In Iran They Hang You For The Crime Of Being Gay’ (Video)

Senator Tom Cotton just doesn’t know when to shut up. Or more likely, he subscribes to the mentality that bad press is better than good press, because that’s the way to rally right-wing Republicans to his cause. That cause is being the rising Senate star of the GOP fringe and possibly a presidential candidate in […]

Thanks to Conservatives, Satanists Now Allowed to Place Holiday Display in Florida State Capitol

As the saying goes: Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. That’s exactly what I’ve told these conservatives who continue to push for religious symbols being placed in or around government building where they don’t belong. Because while conservatives often claim that they’re “fighting for the freedom of religion,” we […]

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 […]

A Quick Breakdown of the First Amendment so that Conservatives Might Finally Understand It

Not too long ago I wrote a piece where I expressed an opinion that if conservatives had their way, they’d repeal and rewrite our First Amendment. Why wouldn’t they?  The First Amendment is what keeps them from turning the United States into the theocracy that they so desperately want it to be. And an argument […]

Let’s Be Honest, Republicans Would Love to Repeal the First Amendment

While conservatives often claim that liberals are the ones who “hate the Constitution,” it seems to me that conservatives are often the ones who’ve landed on the wrong side of history when it comes to most major events in our nation’s history. For conservatives, religion, guns and states’ rights are often the three “go to” […]

Introducing My New Religion, Cliff-stianity

Call me… inspired.  I never knew the power that saying, “It’s against my religion” could give me.  Silly me, I always thought that freedom of religion applied to actual human beings, not entities.  I always thought that our First Amendment gave me the right to follow whatever religion I felt like without fear that someone […]

In One Speech, Mike Huckabee Proves How Ignorant Conservatives Are About Our Constitution (Video)

Believe it or not, there was a time where I didn’t think Mike Huckabee was that bad of a guy.  Granted I didn’t know a whole lot about him back then, but the few times I saw him give an interview he seemed fairly level headed, and what he said didn’t sound like something uttered […]
