Bishops’ Stance On Motives And Behaviors

“Hate the sin, but love the sinner”, So I do not hate the gays— Their desires aren’t a problem What’s a problem is their ways It’s their actions, not their motives, Which define a life of sin What’s important is their conduct Not what drives it from within. If you act on your attraction That’s …

“A Symbol Of National Unity”

I shouldn’t be shocked—hey, they’re only the news, They can say what they want with impunity— But it took me aback that they called a cathedral A “symbol of national unity”. It’s a beautiful building, I have to admit, (Darth Vader hides in the façade!) But it seems our one nation once deemed indivisible Separates …

Gee, I Guess Maybe I’m Not An Atheist After All

I’ve missed the point of atheism—missed it all along— I thought I was an atheist, but now I know I’m wrong: An atheist hates God, you see, because he loves his sins (It says so in the bible, and the bible always wins).

Sophisticated … Something.

I needed a few vital groceries So I laced up my shoes and set forth But I’d somehow forgotten my compass So I didn’t know which way was North! It’s just down the street that I’m heading And I’ll hope against hope for the best The store’s on the left when I get there But …

An Atheist Town Council Prayer

The town of Greece, NY, as a result of their recent court decision, is going to have a town council opening prayer delivered by an atheist. This has left a segment of the Christian population utterly befuddled; when the bible is the only book you need, you are not likely to have a dictionary handy. …

Repeat After Me:

So you’ve got a new ambition—it’s to write a gospel song— They will play it on the radio, and maybe sing along But your knowledge of the bible isn’t really all that strong If you’re thinking that’s a problem, I can tell you that you’re wrong! You can write it with a single verse—not even …

Containing Atheism, In Saudi Arabia

There’s a piece decrying atheists— “Contain them!” it opines— But it’s quite a different story If you read between the lines… There’s a very strange article in the Saudi Gazette. On the face of it, atheism is a problem which must be contained: A number of academics and experts have underlined the need for serious …
