Compassionate Woman Stops Reluctant Robber With Lie

ABC calls this story: “Faith Stops Florida Robbery” and “Christian Woman Stops Robbery With Faith”. Paraphrased: “I’m here to rob you.”“Let me tell you about Jesus, I’m a Christian.”“I am too and I hate doing this, but I still need to rob you.”“Do you have a family?”“That’s why I’m doing this.”“I can help you get …

The moral compass

A fan just wrote in with a quote from a Catholic instructor who offered their moral opinion on both rape and masturbation: “Rape is better than masturbation because there is a chance of a child to be conceived rather than wasting that of which God gave us.” This probably doesn’t represent the view of every …

“If I gave you any thought, I probably would.”

We have lately gotten a number of emails from viewers bringing Rich Allen’s YouTube bullshit to our attention, and who haven’t gotten the memo that Jen essentially exposed the guy for the pathological liar he is more than a week ago. They seem to think we need to address Allen’s falsehoods as a matter of …

Quick admin note: gang, how hard is it to notice the moderation alert?

Matt’s post today is getting a lot of responses, but it would appear some commenters aren’t reading the notice that comment moderation is on, nor are they noticing the window that pops up after leaving your comment, informing you that comment moderation is on, and that it will appear on the original post after it …

Answering the right questions…

Reposted from my Facebook notes, by request: “What proof and evidence can you provide that atheism is accurate and correct?” Atheism is not a world view or a philosophy, it does not assert claims that could be viewed as accurate and correct – it is the rejection of theistic claims. It is disbelief of the …

All new meaning to the term sh*t sandwich…

Courtesy my bud Chris Conner, I am made aware of the company Food for Life Baking Co., Inc. They name their products after Biblical verses, and I believe I’ve seen their Ezekiel 4:9 bread at the grocery stores. So what’s wrong with this? Oh, nothing. Free enterprise and all that. But it does make for …

What type of Theistic Skeptic are you?

I’ve obviously spent a lot of time on this subject and this will be a much shorter post. I’m simply going to categorize, for clarity, the different types of skeptical theists. I’ve named them after individuals who all self-identify as both skeptic and theist (some as a specific subtype, like Christian) and as skeptics. The …

Why Anti-Gay Catholic Doctrine Is Good

It just gets sadder and sadder. I received a response from the Catholic who spawned the last item I posted. Since she wasn’t interested in visiting the blog to see what people thought, I went ahead and issued a full response. Below is her initial note back to me today, along with my reply below …

Catholics Aren’t Anti-Gay?

We just recieved an e-mail I had to share. It seems that every time we hear from a Christian who wants to help us better understand they’re not as bad as we make them out on the show, I’m left astounded at how blind they are to how horrid or stupid they honestly sound. Here …

More tilting at windmills?

There’s a new reader rant over at Skepchick and I have questions: Where are these people? Where are the “Atheists who proclaim no one with a religious belief should have anything to with Skepticism“? Where are the people who think, “That person is a Christian, he can’t think critically.“? Holy crap? Exaggerate much? Where are …
