The Mystery of the Christian School Plaques

We may need to call in Scooby Doo and the gang to solve the Mystery of the Christian School Plaques. In Midlothian, Texas there is a plaque embedded into the wall at the entrance of the elementary school that reads: “Dedicated in the Year of Our Lord 1997 to the Education of God’s Children and to their Faithful Teachers in the Name of the Holy Christian Church.”

Tan Suits and Obama Derangement Syndrome

You can tell when people are suffering from a derangement syndrome about a specific person. When you hear them constantly making idiotic arguments that they would never make about people on their own side of the fence, you know that’s what you’re dealing with. A perfect example: People freaking out about Obama wearing a tan suit at a press conference.

A Hilarious Scientology Video

I don’t know how to embed the video on Tony Ortega’s website, but you have to go and watch the video. It’s an internal Scientology video encouraging people to donate large sums of money to build “Ideal Orgs” — fancy new buildings in cities around the country that will give the illusion that the “religion” is growing rather than shrinking. The video is breathtakingly lame, featuring really bad sub-Glee level covers of bad pop songs with the lyrics changed. Like this one. I’m sure you can guess the song:

Exactly What Atheists Don’t Need to Be Doing

Oi vey. Here’s a textbook example of stupid bullshit that atheists really should not be doing. Some douchebag from Arizona who actually calls himself “Dark Lord” has been arrested after setting a Bible on fire and then peeing on it outside a homeless mission. The arrest is completely unnecessary and wrong but so is this idiotic and juvenile behavior.

No, You Can’t Expel Someone for Not Saying a Prayer or the Pledge

Mayor John Rees of Winter Garden, Florida apparently thinks he has the power to have someone removed from a city council meeting if they don’t stand for an opening prayer or the pledge of allegiance.

Gingrich Invents Speech by St. Ronald the Magnificent

Newt Gingrich criticizes Obama for his handling of ISIS and asks “What would Reagan do?” And by Reagan, he doesn’t mean the actual Ronald Reagan, he means St. Ronald the Magnificent, who exists only in the imaginations of Republicans. He even invents a whole speech he surmises that St. Ronald would have given:

Dr. Debunks Right Wing Claim About Diseased Immigrants

Former House member JD Hayworth is now hosting a right wing talk show for Newsmax and he had an infectious disease specialist on his show, almost certainly expecting him to back up the xenophobic right’s ridiculous and bigoted claims about immigrants bringing diseases into the country. He’s shocked when the doctor does the exact opposite and debunks that nonsense. In fact, he said it was widespread poverty that spreads disease, not immigration.

Dear Rick Santorum: Kids Can and Do Pray in School

Rick Santorum is busy promoting a new movie put out by the Christian film studio he isn’t qualified to run. And true to Santorum’s usual form, he doesn’t care if he has to lie to do it. The movie is called One Generation Away and it’s the usual faux-persecution claptrap we hear from the Christian right on a daily basis. Here’s what he had to say during an interview about the movie:

The Florida minister who was recently told that he can no longer be the chaplain for a public high school football team is getting the full martyr treatment on Fox News, first with a Todd Starnes column and then with an interview with the merry band of morons on that station’s morning show. The stupid is strong with this one.
