Dinesh D’Souza, Christianity’s silliest intellectual poseur

In the wake of the Ft.

We get creationist email #2

This is a follow-up to this dialogue. Martin has politely asked me if I would increase my blogging activity over the next few weeks, so that we can make up for the lack of new shows. Since I enjoy writing posts that react to something else, I’ll probably carry on with this sort of thing …

No! Not Sarah too!

For those of you who don’t keep up with Ed Brayton’s enjoyable blog Dispatches from the Culture Wars, he has a funny post today featuring an excerpt from Sarah Palin’s new book that does a pretty fair job of illustrating why the lady hasn’t got what it takes to be elected dogcatcher let alone leader …

Brannon Howse, racist asshole

Back to the loonybin otherwise known as the Christian Worldview Network. Bask in the unapologetically racist language Brannon Howse uses to distort Barack Obama’s reaction to the Fort Hood shootings.

Antichrist gonna getcha

This morning I was listening to Christian radio. (Yeah, I still do that. I’m not going to apologize for it, he said defensively.) Thanks to my long commute, when I’m bored of the available audiobooks and podcasts, I occasionally switch to NPR or Christian talk for a few seconds to check if they say something …

Postmortem on today’s show

I turned up much earlier than I usually do (mainly because today is gross and rainy, and so I didn’t think my usual method of flying down the freeway in order to dash into the studio at the last minute would be the most safe and sensible option), to discover the guys working like bees …

Christian Hate wins in Maine…but…

Once again, the fundies have locked and loaded the only weapons they have, hate and fear, and brought them to bear in Maine, where a marriage equality vote went the wrong way yesterday. Naturally, this is disappointing for those of us who support love and families regardless of such details as race, creed, or sexual …
