The equal rights bill you never heard of.

There is a major human rights bill under debate in Canada. You’ve probably never heard of it, which is a bad sign, because it’s important. It is about what happens to actual human beings.

The case against Mormonism

I’m going to try something a little different and see how people like it. A little while ago I was approached by a self-described Christian apologist with a request that I write my best case against Christianity, up to 2,000 words, for presentation on his blog, so that he could respond to it.

School prayer draws opposition from—wait, who?

For more than 30 years, Dr. Harold Brockus was the Presbyterian pastor at the Good Samaritan Church in Pinellas Park. Sermons, missions, prayers.

A white vigilante named George Zimmerman has shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, and hasn’t even been arrested. Zimmerman, 28, claims he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month in self-defence during a confrontation in a gated …

“The real bigots are the liberals”

Writing for Mail Online, one Simon Heffer spews: I believe that the only people who should be able to marry and have a wedding are those of different genders. Well I believe that people should only publish opinions that do not make them look like narrow-minded twits, but you don’t hear me calling for the …

Heh, publicity

The creationist lawsuit against the JPL is getting better and better: the Glendale News Press reports that lawyers for David Coppedge tried—unsuccessfully—to bar the press from their client’s religious discrimination lawsuit. [Update: No, I read that wrong, it was attorneys for JPL who requested the press ban, citing privacy concerns for the witnesses.] Los Angeles …

Resistance is… persecution?

This is really not going to end well for the ID creationist community… “David Coppedge alienated his co-workers by the way he acted with them, and blamed anyone who complained about those interactions,” according to JPL in their response. “He accuses his former project supervisor and line manager of making discriminatory and retaliatory employment decision, …
