Obama on Blame Game: ‘Ridiculous Spectacle’

Trying to work on an epically huge, possibly more than I can chew post on prayer, but I’m also distracted by my work laptop being pretty busted up, so it might have to wait til tomorrow. At least I have a minor tidbit of good news to report (with minimal comments). Via McClatchy, Obama’s remarks …

The Religion of Peace* (Unless You Draw Stuff We Don’t Like)

In case you haven’t already seen it, Lars Vilks was attacked by Muslims upset at his cartoon of Muhammad as a roundabout dog. It was caught on film. * Religion of peace my pasty white ass. The man has religious fatwas and a $100,000 bounty on his head — with a $50,000 bonus if his …

This is a really big problem

You can see the oil slick from space. What was once permanently sequestered underground was released in our ever-increasing lust for oil, and with a haste spurred on by that lust, we tapped more wells, wells that were more dangerous, more nearly inaccessible, and more seemingly remote from human civilization, to the point where we …

Christoga

Was just discussing on Twitter with @GarageRock the ridiculousness of Christians and their need to rebrand everything in Jesus’ name. I was referring, at the time, to the idiotic websites that have sprung up duplicating Facebook, Youtube or Twitter, only named stuff like GodTube or Gospelr. Then I came across this.

Humanists Sending Ambassadors to Canada’s Prayer Breakfast

Theo Bromine, an occasional commenter on this blog, is apparently more active in humanist circles than I’d realized. She serves presently as President of the Humanist Association of Ottawa, and is apparently making some tangible inroads with the government’s nonsensical National Prayer Breakfast — Canada’s answer to the American National Day of Prayer. She sent …

Fatwa Envy

The main story thrust of the recent two-part South Park episode that sent Muslims into a hate-frenzy and induced Comedy Central’s genitalia to wither and die, was an attempt by celebrities — chief among them Tom Cruise — to kidnap Muhammed and somehow use his powers of avoiding mockery for themselves. To duplicate the mystical …

Maddow on yet another gay anti-gay activist

Been gone for a while. Very large work project. Very much one failure after another. Know what perks me up a bit after a bad week like this one? Why, a little bit of schadenfreude, of course! Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy I for one am shocked, SHOCKED, …
