Oh, Crap! I Agree with John Stossel!

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Townhall is a fundie opinion site that carries a lot of conservative commentators. Or maybe it’s a conservative site that carries a lot of fundie commentators. Whichever it is, they favor a giant church/state amalgam. So it was there that I found this commentary by John Stossel. I haven’t really thought of Stossel as a [...]

TV Notes

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Here’s an alert on a couple of upcoming TV events. These are a little off topic, but some of you will be interested. I’ve heard a rumor that friend of BoF, Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, will be on Is It Real? on the National Geographic channel. The program is about life on Mars. I [...]

God’s Superbowl Dilemma

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Art Stricklin of Baptist Press wrote a pearl of wisdom entitled “Super Bowl coaches Dungy, Smith known for Christian testimony” (I wonder if Stricklin has enough wisdom to make a pearl necklace.). Head coaches Tony Dungy of Indianapolis and close friend and fellow Christian Lovie Smith of Chicago gave credit to God following their respective [...]

Back from TAM 5

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

I’m back from the Amazing Meeting 5. It was a lot of fun. You owe it to yourself to go next year. This year’s topic was “Skepticism and the Media”, which is a bit off topic for this blog. For those who are interested, I recommend that you go visit Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy blog. [...]

The Amazing Meeting 5

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

This is just a quick note to say that I am off to the Amazing Meeting in Las Vegas. I’ll be back Monday night. I hope to have a new post no later than Tuesday. If I met you at TAM5 and this is your first visit, welcome to the Bay of Fundie. Look around. [...]

Conan O’Brien Hates Christians!

Friday, January 12th, 2007

The fundie persecution complex continues unabated. I guess we shouldn’t expect otherwise. After all, these people think there’s a crazy old man with god-like powers in the sky. A little persecution delusion is nothing compared to that. Life Site News offers up this silly little tidbit: NBC’s Conan O’Brien Show Gag Has Christian Suspecting Jesus [...]

Chick Dissections

Friday, January 5th, 2007

I’d like to thank reader Andrew for pointing me to the Chick Tract Dissections over at the Enter the Jabberwock blog. Jabberwock takes various Chick Tracts and makes fun of them, panel by panel. This stuff is hilarious! Here’s one quick excerpt. The graphic is an actual scene from a Chick Tract. The quotation underneath [...]

Delusion

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

Have you ever seen Harvey, starring James Stewart? In the film, Stewart plays Elwood P. Dowd, who has an invisible friend, a tall, anthropomorphic rabbit. Nobody else can see the rabbit, so they are convinced that Dowd is a looney. Buy from Powell’s. I was, of course, struck by the amazing similarity between Harvey and [...]
