God-based Abortion Policy: FAIL (Open thread on episode 719)

I’m going to talk about abortion again this week. This time, I’m taking a completely different tactic. I’m going to apply my own personal moral principles to the problem and see how well I do against those of the religious right, supposedly backed by their god. Guess which one will come out objectively better? Hopefully, …

About Last Weekend

The rumor is true. I got married on May 1st. Wedded, actually. Texas doesn’t yet allow same-sex couples to be married, but it won’t be too long before that changes, I think.

Consanguineous bonds

Email question of the day: “So I take it you have no argument against marriage between two consenting adults, even if these adults are, for example, brother and sister?” It’s the question of the day because it sent me off to do a bit of research on incest in order to challenge/re-affirm my position. (Freedom …

No Phones for next Sunday’s show

Many of you are probably aware that the phone system in the TV studio wasn’t working last Sunday and the crew did whatever they could to make a workable show out of the situation. I’ve just been informed that the phone situation will not be resolved in time for next Sunday’s show. Tracie and I …

Greta Christina has a new post about a story she wrote for AlterNet…trying to list the 10 best Christmas songs for atheists. I don’t like the rules of this particular meme…which is why I wasn’t happy with her list (this isn’t a knock on Greta who I really like and look forward to talking to …

Theism is the default position?

Michael Ochoa posted a link to a video and asked me to debunk it. Normally, I’d skip requests like this, as I have too much on my plate…but sometimes I get in a mood and just go for it. Here’s the first (and only draft) of a response to the video: “P1 – In order …
