Republican Congressman Sends Bible to Every Member of Congress to ‘Guide’ Their Decision Making

Recently I had an exchange with a conservative where I simply told them that as long as Republicans continue to try to interject religion into our government, they can never claim to stand for “Constitutional values.” Our First Amendment makes it pretty clear that our government cannot pass laws based on religion.  It’s like I’ve […]

Good News: IRS Agrees To Monitor Religious Groups For Political Campaigning

For entirely too long now, many churches have been engaging in political action despite laws prohibiting them from doing so while enjoying a tax-exempt status. While we have seen this on the more liberal side of politics as well, the majority of this seems to be coming from evangelical, right-wing Christian groups like the Christian […]

New Rule: Any Politician Who Tries to Interject Religion into Government Should be Removed from Office Immediately

I’ve absolutely had it with these politicians who constantly try to inject their religion into politics and policy.  Not only that, they run on the premise that our government should be based on biblical principles. Oh, by the way, it’s 100 percent unconstitutional for laws to be based on religion.  But you don’t have to believe me, […]

Franklin Graham Tells Muslims ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’

Mayor Kindig’s Response to Minorities Shows Importance of 1st Amendment

When Omaha Atheists, a humanist group, approached La Vista, Nebraska Mayor Douglas Kindig over possible Church and State separation issues, Mayor Kindig apparently cussed them out (because, Christian) and told them point-blank, “Minorities are not going to run my city.” Reading about this reminded me of sitting in a library and reading a magazine by the name […]

5 Reasons Everyone Should Oppose Michael Boggs’ Nomination

What do we know about Michael Boggs? We know that the ultra-conservative former legislator and current judge has been appointed by President Obama for a federal district court bench in Georgia. We know that this is part of a compromise deal Obama made with Georgia senators in order to lift blocks for other appointments. We probably […]

Hobby Lobby’s Bible Propaganda: Now Coming to a Public School

Our good friends the Greens, the real religious persecutors at Hobby Lobby HQ, are at it again. As we’re aware, they’re already imploring the US Supreme Court to decide that they and other religious employers can control the bodies of their employees. But now craft patriarch Steve Green, through his Green Scholars Initiative (a non […]

A Simple Explanation For Those Who Don’t Seem to Get Why Religion Should Stay Out of Government

Hi, I’m Allen.  I’m a liberal and I’m also a Christian — you know, something many conservative “Christians” believe isn’t possible.  To many of these people, liberals are basically the anti-Christ.  I guess it’s because we actually believe in equal rights, helping the poor, giving access to health care for every American, and that we […]
