Atheists Challenge Christian Messages on Snowplows in South Dakota

For some bizarre reason, the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota thought it would be a great idea to put Christian messages on the blades of their snowplows and had students from local Christian schools paint them on there. Now they’re having to paint over them after an atheist group complained about them.

Fox Blames Non-Existent Wage Hike for McDonalds’ Losses

McDonald’s just reported a huge drop in quarterly profits, about 30%, and Fox News knows exactly what caused it: That big increase in the minimum wage that, you know, doesn’t fucking exist. Apparently on Planet Wingnuttia, cause and effect are reversed and the effect can exist without the cause existing. And of course, this is coming from the two dumbest men on television.

Wingnut Knows What Women Want

It always cracks me up when people talk about what men want or what women want, as if all men or all women wanted the same thing. It’s especially amusing when what that person declares that group wants flies in the face of all evidence of what a majority wants. Right wing talk show host Laurie Roth knows what women want and, by sheer coincidence, it’s exactly what she wants.

The Return of Lawrence Van Dyke?

If you’ve been reading my blog for a really, really long time you probably remember Lawrence Van Dyke. Way back in early 2004, only a few months after I started the blog, I got involved in a fight between Brian Leiter and Van Dyke over a book review that the latter did in the Harvard Law Review of a pro-Intelligent Design book. Van Dyke proved to be almost entirely clueless in that exchange. He’s now a candidate for the Montana Supreme Court.

More Godwinning From Jody Hice

Right Wing Watch has been digging through the archives of Jody Hice’s radio show to see what the presumptive Georgia congressman has been saying (though he has now removed the archives) and they have caught him several times comparing Obama to Hitler. In a 2011 program he interviewed Kitty Werthmann, an elderly Austrian who has been screaming “Hitler” in response to everything for decades.

Bigot Preacher Waxes Poetic About Marriage Equality

Mark Creech of the Christian Action League of North Carolina is “heartbroken” over marriage equality coming to that state, which he calls “evil” and a “tragedy.” He was so upset that he couldn’t sleep, but he has a tale to tell about how God made a solar eclipse just for him and told him everything would be okay.

Pat Robertson: Christians Can Raise the Dead

Pat Robertson responded to a viewer’s question by saying that he and other Christians have the power to raise the dead but “we just aren’t using it.” Okay, Pat, that’s an entirely testable claim. Let’s take you and anyone else who thinks they do that down to the morgue and you do whatever you think you have to do to make the corpses come back to life. And when you fail, you admit that you’re full of shit and have been scamming people your entire life and you have to give back your huge fortune to the people you fleeced. You got enough “faith” for that?

Joseph Farah Wishes the Earth a Happy 6028th Birthday

Joseph Farah of the Worldnetdaily is a young earth creationist. That’s long been known. Turns out he can’t do math either, since he thinks Bishop Ussher’s date of 4004 bc means the earth is 6028 years old (it would actually be 6017 — 4004 + 2014 – 1 for the non-existent year 0). And he has some really dumb things to say in a column about it.

Don Young is a Major League Asshole

Rep. Don Young of Alaska, a Republican, is a serious asshole. First he went to speak at Wasila High School, where a student had committed suicide only a week earlier, and, without knowing anything at all about that actual kid’s situation, blamed it on his friends — many of them in the audience — not being supportive enough.

Anti-Gay Attacks in Liberia After Church Blames Them for Ebola

From Liberia comes the utterly unsurprising news that when you blame an already marginalized and despised group of people for an epidemic of disease, other people will try to attack and kill them. In that country, Christian leaders have blamed gay people for God punishing the nation with Ebola.
