Welcome, SF Atheists!

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

I just got back from the monthly meeting of the San Francisco Atheists. This is the first time I’ve ever been to such a gathering. I had a good time. I also shamelessly plugged Bay of Fundie. If you were at that meeting, welcome aboard! I’m glad you stopped by to check out my blog. [...]

Rick Santorum

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

Few politicians are as qualified as Rick Santorum for a spot in Know Your Foe. (Ahh, who am I kidding? Most of the G.O.P. belongs here.) Let’s find out about this great foe of all humanity, shall we? Representing the otherwise fine state of Pennsylvania, Santorum was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in [...]

Update: Public Expression of Religion Act

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

I came across some more information about the Public Expression of Religion Act of 2005 that I reported on last week. The good folks at Dispatches from the Culture Wars tell us more: [I]t isn’t true that the ACLU received those amounts in those cases. That may have been the amount that was awarded to [...]

Thou Shalt Not Steal a Brain

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

. . . even if you need it real bad! Why is anybody stupid enough to go on the Colbert Report? I’ve been cruising the web looking for blogs of interest. I came across BoingBoing.net. He has a great link to a YouTube video. To quote BoingBoing: In this video, Stephen Colbert nails Georgia Representative [...]

Christofascism

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

Over at My Left Wing, there is an interesting discussion going on over this desecration of an American symbol: Much of the discussion involves just how much of a “Christian nation” this is. Paul Rosenberg has an excellent post. It says, in part: America was founded as a liberal nation, not a Christian nation. That [...]

Only 1900 More Years until My Retirement!

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

As I was cruising around the Cybercast (a.k.a. Christian) News Service’s website to read the article I mentioned in my last post, I noticed that all of the articles that these people have in their Archive section have an improper date stamp. The Mt. Soledad article, for example, displayed what they believe the current date [...]

Efforts to Save Mount Soledad Memorial Face Hypocrisy

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

Here’s another fun article from our friends at Cybercast News Service. It’s entitled “Efforts to Save Mount Soledad Memorial Face Deadline.” If you aren’t familiar with this matter, you can check out my last post. To quote CNS: Activists trying to protect the Mount Soledad veterans’ memorial in San Diego, Calif., say the Fourth of [...]

Mount Soledad Easter Cross

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

Fundies complain about how much money they have to spend defending their indefensible positions in church/state separation cases. It’s their own fault. If they’d just accept the courts’ findings (this is especially peculiar, since fundies are used to blindly accepting things that other people tell them) the first time, they could save themselves a lot [...]
