How to Hunt Men for Jesus

You use the “spiritually transformed firearm of Jesus Christ” of course. No seriously, that’s what some members of the military call it. Here’s what Rachel Maddow had to say about it yesterday: Onward Christian Assholes! Nothing like compromising the entire mission in the Middle East.

Bryan Steeksma’s Residual Soul

One of the most frequently asked questions we get from AETV viewers is “Who does that kickass opening song?” to which we’ve replied, often, that it’s by Canadian artist and AETV fan Bryan Steeksma. As your FYI post for Monday I direct you to Bryan’s download-only album Residual Soul, available from CDBaby for $24.99, and …

Secular Charities for Haiti Relief

Here’s a short list with a brief description of each of them and links where you can donate. I’ve included text donation information for those charities that provide for that. I’m sure there are others, but these are the ones I had time to vet. You can find them all on Charity Navigator. MADRE – …

We Can’t Please Everyone

It’s pretty obvious that Jen and Russell received mixed reviews on the theist guest experiment. I will let the viewers continue to figure out their feelings about it. But the event also triggered some e-mail responses, and one in particular was from “a fan of the show” who also notes he is “a Christian…currently in …

The California Supreme US District Court is currently hearing a case over whether 2008 Proposition 8 (which bans same-sex marriage in the California State Constitution) is itself constitutional. If the court rules that it is not constitutional (by the state’s US constitution), then same-sex marriage would revert to being allowed in the state. This is …

We get email

Hard to keep coming up with creative new titles for these, so may as well just stick with the time-tested one. Dear AE, please stop being naive & guilble. You’re blinded & deceived by the devil. I pray that you, along with every fellow atheist find the light through all the darkness you all remain …

Stay classy, Pat

We’ve gotten an email at the TV show address alerting us that on today’s 700 Club episode, Pat Robertson has gone into his usual “blame the victims” spiel regarding the Haitian earthquake. Apparently God decided to level Port-au-Prince, kill untold numbers (estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands), and displace at least 3 million …

Another konk on the head with the Reality Mallet

Okay, so you know how the homophobic Christian Right clutches its pearls and bleats that if teh gayz are allowed to marry for realz, it will, like, totally destroy the institution of marriage for everybody, forever? So we have to keep gay marriage illegal because the sanctity of traditional straight marriage simply won’t survive otherwise? …

The most persuasive evidence I’ve yet seen that there may not only be a God, but that he dearly, truly loves us!

This. Seriously, Jon Stewart, Colbert, Rachel Maddow, Olbermann must not be able to stop dancing with glee! This is rapture!

Propagandists to the Rescue!

The Texas State Board of Education has been a constant source of annoyance and frustration for people like me, who value church-state separation. The current board is packed with creationists and religious ideologues who have lost touch with reality, not to mention their mission as educators. Here’s a sampling: Board member Cynthia Dunbar has called …
