The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment in the United Arab Emirates has issued a fatwa (it just means a religious edict despite popular misconception that it commands some sort of violence) saying that no Muslims may go on a future mission to Mars.

A snake-handling Pentecostal pastor named Jamie Coots, probably the most famous one in the country because he was on a reality TV show about that subject, was killed by a snake that bit him over the weekend. He probably could have been saved, but he also refused treatment for it.

A church in Virginia has decided to encourage its congregation to come to church butt nekkid. And you’re gonna love the reasoning behind it: Because Jesus was born naked. Of course, everyone was born naked. Gee, do you think maybe you’re just making shit up?

The Worldnetdaily has another adverticle — a fake “news” article that’s really just an ad for a book they’re selling — and this one is particularly ridiculous. The headline declares: “SUPER BOWL STUNNER THAT WAS PROPHESIED.” It’s about the catch made by David Tyree in the Super Bowl a few years ago, when he trapped …

Jesus continues to troll True Believers everywhere by leaving vague images of himself in the weirdest places. He’s shown up on tortillas, toast and even in bathroom mold. Now he showed up in a bruise that a New Mexico woman sustained when she fell down the stairs — but only after some “holy dirt” was …

William Tapley, the warped prophecy reader I’ve shown videos of before, has decided based on a commercial for the iPad that there’s going to be a “false flag” event at the Super Bowl. It’s a bizarre, rambling diatribe about an image he claims is a woman giving birth to the Antichrist. It’s just a sunrise, …

Came across this video while watching some Led Zeppelin videos on Youtube. I can’t find who the guy is in it or when it was recorded (the porn stache is out of the 70s and so is the hair, but the clothes look more modern), but it reminds me a lot of the stuff I …

Kathleen Tonn is running for the U.S. Senate from Alaska. I can’t imagine the video she posted to Youtube last weekend and then apparently removed is going to help. She recorded herself speaking and singing in tongues to save someone named Suzie. Even the Christian Post seems a bit skeptical.

As if the Kevin Sorbo movie and the Erik Estrada movie aren’t enough, there’s another new Christian movie coming out that is almost certainly to be an unintentional laugh riot. It’s called The Lock In and it’s the tale of a youth group that has a lock in and has to confront demons because one …

Having grown up as a fundamentalist Christian in the early 80s, I remember well the many books and sermons about the evils of pop culture. I read Bob Larson’s books about the evils of rock music (and then ignored them completely). Here’s some video clips of preachers in the 80s railing about the evils of …

The Japanese Prime Minster has created a minor international incident by visiting a Shinto shrine to dead Japanese soldiers from World War II. China and South Korea are apparently a bit sensitive to such symbolic visits for various reasons. But it’s the prime minister’s response to the whole thing that has me amused:

Joseph Farah’s Worldnetdaily has been simultaneously publishing articles that say Christmas is a pagan holiday and that there is a war on Christmas. But in a Christmas Eve (not Christmas Steve) column he says that the real story of Christmas is how Jesus gave up his omniscience so he could shit his diapers. Or something.

One of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing is marrying the nurse who took care of him during his rehabilitation from horrific injuries, which makes a great little human interest story. But he seems to think it happened so that he could meet his bride, which is just twisted.

The Columbia City Seventh Day Adventist Church in Lake City, Florida seems to have gone a little over the top in putting together a drive-thru nativity scene. Going beyond merely depicting Joseph, Mary and Jesus and maybe some wise men, they decided to include Herod’s slaughter of male babies as well.
