Iago syndrome

Oh good grief – Iago syndrome strikes again. So this odd tweet flies by me: Jeremy Stangroom Ed Rybicki speaks out about the consequences of the vile bullying he received at FtB: http://bit.ly/TT9CWz#FTBullies 8:52 AM – 23 Nov 12 #FTBullies. Honestly. Jeremy Stangroom is still regularly using that stupid hashtag, the darling of the obsessive under-motivated …

Iago and Hippolytus

Ever read Euripides’s Hippolytus? It’s interesting because Hippolytus is very like a Taliban dude. He loves Artemis and hates Aphrodite, and he keeps telling everyone how pure he is. In short, he hates sex. It has this one speech of his, starting at line 617… Oh, Zeus! Why did you bring woman into the light …

His wife had left the international airport

Another new wrinkle in the project to make sure that women are kept under ferocious control at all times no matter what – Saudi Arabia has now arranged things so that when a woman leaves Saudi Arabia, her male “guardian” gets a test message saying “Hey! Did you know your slut has crossed the border?” …

Steve Moxon goes to Parliament

From the C of E we drift over to the Houses of Parliament in all their Victorian Gothic splendor. What’s going on there? An influential committee is taking advice on women from Steve Moxon. Victoria would be proud – she hated feminists.

For theological reasons

A member of the General Synod of the Church of England explains about the vote not to allow women bishops. The legislation we voted on needed to achieve two outcomes: the ordination of women to the episcopate; and sufficient provision for those who, for theological reasons, find this innovation unacceptable. For theological reasons – that’s …

Ancient sexist notions

Jesus and Mo are also discussing the C of E vote to say no women bishops. Jesus is quite frank about it. The new book makes a great Xmas present. It gots a foreword by Dawkins.

As set forth

Teresa MacBain tells us about a disturbing law in Kentucky. On August 17, 2012, the Kentucky Supreme Court refused to hear a motion for discretionary review, brought by American Atheists and local plaintiffs, to a state law that makes it mandatory that the Commonwealth and its citizens give credit to Almighty God for its safety …

Prioritizing agreement

Let’s try this again. I keep seeing discussions of Chris Stedman and his new book that complain of how personal and hostile and unfair the criticisms of him are. Let’s see if I can spell out my dissent without sounding (or even being) personal and hostile and unfair. Religion News Service has an interview with …

Mabus re-arrested and re-released

Tim Farley’s eagerly-awaited post on desperately tracking Mabus. This post is the story of how those posts once again led to Markuze’s arrest by the Montreal Police. As in 2011 it took quite a bit of work to make this happen. Tedious, painstaking, often thankless work.  But this is the type of work skeptic activists …

Refusing to mtfo

Meanwhile, from the guys in purple shirts – the general synod of the Church of England has voted against allowing the appointment of women as bishops. Well you know how it is. It’s who wants to stand up and talk about it, go on shows about it, go to conferences and speak about it, who’s intellectually …
