Fundies to Naderize the 2008 elections? Eeen-teresting.

Dismayed by what they see as the likelihood that pro-choice Rudy Giuliani might have the GOP presidential nomination in the bag, this New York Times article hints that such prominent Christian conservative leaders as James Dobson and Tony Perkins might consider running a third party candidate. Which would rock, because while their candidate would never …

COTG showcases AE

A Load of Bright is hosting the latest installment of the Carnival of the Godless, and Tobe38 has made my takedown of John Terry the headliner, calling it an “absolute tour de force.” I blush humbly. Many thanks to Tobe, and for the rest of you, getcher asses over there for some great godless reading. …

In which I further abuse the mindless John Terry

The Northwest Arkansas News site has published one good letter to the editor excoriating John Terry for his vituperative anti-atheist rant posted last Saturday. (And to date, none supporting him.) We’ll see if Terry has the stones to respond. I suspect that, like most fundie bigot morons, he’ll respond to being called out on the …

Want to hear some good news for a change!?

Via Debunking Christianity, I read of the latest poll by Christian research organization The Barna Group, which shows that American youth in the 16-29 age bracket currently have the lowest opinion of Christianity than that group has ever had in previous generations. The study shows that 16- to 29-year-olds exhibit a greater degree of criticism …

Classic God-Man Comics!

I’m a big fan of Ruben Bolling’s comic, Tom the Dancing Bug. Periodically he’ll do an episode of “God-Man,” in which The Almighty is portrayed as a comic book hero. This one was an especially good shot. (Click on the image for the original location; you may have to view a short ad first.)

David Vitter and his white-supremacist creationist chums

I’m sure some of you remember David Vitter, the Louisiana “family values” senator who was caught whoremongering. You might have also heard that he is attempting a desperate act of image rehabilitation by giving $100,000 to a creationist organization called the “Louisiana Family Forum”. (Isn’t it offensive the way conservative Christians keep wanting to turn …

Time reveals Billy Graham’s true self

This is brilliant. Hat tip to Shell over at Words, Words, Words for this one. Here’s a recent Time cover featuring still-not-dead-yet evangelical superstar Billy Graham. Notice anything revealing? Let me adjust the picture a little bit…ah, there we are. You know, I always suspected something…

Why do atheists speak out? This is why.

The post-Dawkins/Harris/Hitchens backlash continues as more petulant Christians come out of the woodwork with their increasingly desperate smears of the character of atheists. Here’s a typically asinine screed from some Christian prat writing for some news site in Arkansas. It was so full of perfect bilge that I felt compelled to take off the gloves …

Man, if Kathy Griffin got them riled up…

…wait till Bill Donahue gets a load of this. This TV ad has been making the blogosphere rounds. It’s for a Belgian cable TV network, and depicts Jesus as a club-hoppin’ party boy who uses his magic powers to score with the hotties. It’s already gotten bishops in that country a little hot under their …

Jesus keeps suckin’ it

The flap last week over Kathy Griffin’s hilarious Emmy acceptance speech is the gift that keeps on giving, it would seem. The latest salvo is the website (damn, I wish I’d thought of this!) suckitjesus.com, where Griffin supporters can sign an online petition — not that there’s any point to those, but it’s a show …
