The rules

TLC, the “Yay religion!” channel, has a new show called All-American Muslim. Guess what it’s about! Guess what its take is! Well in one way its take is fine. Good, show people that Mulims aren’t some weird alien species; excellent; promote fellow-feeling and peace; great. But… Well I’ve only managed to watch a few minutes …

No billboard for YOU

Mid Ohio Atheists had a contract with Lind Media Company for two billboards (of the atheist variety, of course).

However, the association is considering reviewing the wording of its affirmation for new members, to remove religious references. The NSS says the story is bogus, but taking it as …

Blot her out

It’s a hard job obliterating women from the landscape. People have been trying for centuries but it’s like weevils or mildew…there’s always a bit you miss and then before you know it – the big chomping jaws come through the wall and eat you. The Saudis are struggling with this problem now, and they’ve decided …
