Fruh: God Sent the Flood Because of Gay Marriage

Pastor Aaron Fruh of Knollwood Church in Mobile, Alabama is a regular guest on wingnut radio shows. He was on American Family Radio recently making the bizarre claim that God sent the flood (you know, the non-existent global flood with the non-existent Noah’s Ark) because they gave our marriage certificates to gay people back then. …

Romney’s Bombing in London

Adolf Hitler was famously responsible for the bombing of London, but Mitt Romney’s trip to England resulted in a massive bombing IN London. It was an absolute disaster; he could hardly open his mouth without saying something irretrievably stupid and insulting. And as Andrew Sullivan points out, the conservative press has been virtually silent about …

Murray Admits School Prayer is Submission to God

The Worldnutdaily is still making money from sales of a new book by William Murray, the evangelist son of Madilyn Murray O’Hair, so they’re still cranking out fake “articles” that are nothing more than a few statements from Murray about a subject followed by an ad for the book. The latest one is on school …

Keyes Hearts Bachmann

If there’s one sure way to figure out whether your claims and views are bordering on utter lunacy, there’s at least one good way to find out: If Alan Keyes agrees with you, you’ve gone off the deep end. So I’m hardly surprised to see Keyes supporting Michele Bachmann’s witch hunt of Huma Abedin and …

Shooting Victim ‘Felt Evil’, Says God Saved Him

And here we have the perfect contrast to the rational survivor of the Aurora gunman who thanked the paramedics and doctors for saving her life; this guy says God saved him because he was praying. Oh, and that God was in the theater that night with him — but apparently not with all the dead …

The Most Transparent Administration in History Strikes Again

Yet another example of the Obama administration — you know, the promised “most transparent administration in history” — using legal procedures to fight against actual transparency in court. A court has allowed them to continue to pretend that documents that were already made public are still so secret that they are not subject to the …

Catholic Church Lies About Anti-Gay Discrimination

The local newspaper in Worcester, Massachusetts reports on a case where the Catholic diocese lied about a decision not to sell a mansion they owned to a gay couple — and they left the evidence right at the bottom of an email they sent to that couple. They said they had decided not to sell …

CSI Exposes Astrology Scam

Sharon Hill has an article on the Committee for Scientific Investigation website that exposes, yet again, the fraud of astrology. She begins by citing a statement from astrologer Susan Miller: “What I do is scientific. Astrology involves careful methods learned over years and years of training and experience.” Yes, you can laugh now. Hill responds:

Police Rules Meaningless Without Training and Consequences

Carlos Miller shows why even when police departments get it right on policy, those policies are meaningless in the real world if the officers don’t get adequate training — and if there aren’t consequences for violating that policy, especially when they have an obvious incentive to ignore it.

Title X Grants Keep PP Clinics Open

Here’s a great move on the part of the Obama administration. They’re giving out Title X grants to Planned Parenthood family planning clinics that have been defunded by state legislatures, helping to keep their doors open to continue serving the medical needs of woman and families.

I Was Wrong on Citizens United

When the Citizens United decision came down, I argued that its impact was being overblown because the central holding of the case, that corporations could spend money to directly influence an election, would not be used because companies wouldn’t want their name on the ads. Since they could already spend that money by laundering it …

Virginia Columnist Slanders Atheists

Dan Casey, a columnist for the Roanoke Times, invents an entirely fake conversation in order to slander atheists, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation in particular, as only caring about church/state separation in order to make money. Here’s a taste of the irrational diatribe.

‘Psychics’ Give Tips on Missing Girls

Two young girls from Evansdale, Iowa have disappeared and the people in that area are searching far and wide to find them. The local sheriff’s department have been looking for more than two weeks and there’s a $50,000 reward being offered. But they’re getting exactly the wrong kind of “help” from dozens of ‘psychics.’

The Unreality of Reality TV — Or Why NatGeo Should Be Ashamed

One of the more irritating things about the Discovery Channel and the National Geographic Channel, which purport to be pro-science and educational, is how often they put on shows that push egregious nonsense instead of critical thinking. And a new NatGeo show about UFOs is so bad that even the stars of the show are …
