12 Years For Rape (um… that’s the victim)

Gulnaz was raped. There are none who deny; The attacker was wed to her cousin. The rape left her pregnant. That’s partially why She’s been sentenced to jail, for a dozen. An adulterous woman—or so say the courts— Has few options by which to escape. The best and the worst, by all recent reports, Is …

The Night Before (The War On) Christmas

Another loooooong day today. Might have time to write something new later tonight, but for now, a favorite I had forgotten about! Don’t worry that it’s about the War On Christmas–I promise, it has a happy ending. ‘Twas the night before Christmas; the Christians all hunkered In basements of buildings they’d armored and bunkered. They …

Another Atheist Christmas Card

Ok, this one really takes the “let’s out-Hallmark Hallmark” and runs with it. Cuttlefamily’s first christmas cards have begun arriving–one from a cousin who has an album of christmas hymns out. Seriously. Her cards always–always–have a bible verse, and a poem that is weapons-grade glurge. So, below the fold… weapons-grade atheist glurge. Do not click …

An Atheist Christmas Card

A few years ago, I got a really sappy christmas card from the mail carrier. Its true purpose, of course, was to provide an easy way for us to deliver him a Christmas tip. Tis the season, after all. But it started me thinking–how hard can this card-writing business be? Anyway, this one is a …

The War Against Christmas Comes Early

(I know, it’s not yet Thanksgiving. A-I’m busy. B-stores have been in christmas mode for a month already. C-you need time to rehearse these verses if you’re going to deliver them at the Christmas pageant.) From the Cape of Good Hope to the Newfoundland islands, The sands of Iran to the Panama isthmus; From Outback …

Since We’re Coming Up On Thanksgiving…

Another oldie. Sorry. But I want you to donate to food banks, before thanksgiving. (non USAians, I just want you to be good people.) This verse, from a year and a half ago, examined motives. At the time, people were concerned that the reason that people donated to food banks was somehow more important than …

A Powerful Message…

No poetry here, today. I’m too pissed off. “The family of god” has posted a nice message from an honest Jew, our dear friend Ben Stein. First off, I don’t care whether Ben Stein or anyone else posted it. I don’t really think he did, but it really doesn’t matter. I suspect it’s just an …

An Atheist’s Christmas

So I saw a tweet today (I won’t link–go search if you want) that went “FACT: athiests(sic) CANNOT celebrate Christmas. #youreallhypocrites” Silly person; celebrating what currently goes by the name “christmas” started long before her religion did, and trying to tell people they aren’t allowed to eat and drink and celebrate with friends and family …

‘Tis The Season

Two things. First, although I have not yet seen a full-blown apoplectic Fox News meltdown on it yet (perhaps I just missed it), little hints here and there tell us that the annual War On Christmas has begun. So without further ado, this year’s song: In mega-malls and coffee shops In giant chains and mom-and-pops …

Headline Muse, 11/16

They complained that they all had lost face With “face-lifting” a more likely case Though his insults caused stress They at least made good press So the Golden Globes re-inked Gervais Headline: Official: Ricky Gervais back as Golden Globes host No publicity is bad publicity, I guess.
