The Filthy, Smutty Carnival of the Godless

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

Carnival of the Godless #85 is up over at Greta Christina’s blog. She has posted two versions. One has “clean” pictures, and the other is illustrated with slighty-bawdy pulp and paperback covers. The main article I want to call your attention to is “Why Mike Huckabee Hates America” by Alexander the Atheist. It’s an excellent […]

Hysterical Raisins

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

I came across the Hysterical Raisins web site. This guy/gal/desiccated grape takes DVD covers and modifies them for political humor. Here are a few I liked. There’s lots more where these came from.

Discovery Institute Howler

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

(Image form Jean Kern.) The irony flooding out of the Discovery Institute these days would make Noah nervous. Their website devoted to debunking “Darwinism” has an article titled “Dr. Novella’s ‘Every Single Prediction’ in the Mind-Brain Problem”.

Adam, Steve, and the Carnival of the Liberals

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

Seth is Associate Pastor at Shiloh Baptist Church in Harlem, New York. In this excellent article, he advocates tolerance for gays, and he discards the silly “Adam […]

Love Letter from Mike

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Mike Huckabee is my own personal friend. I know this, because he sends me an email every day. Funny thing, though. At the end of every email, he asks me for money. He acts more like a relative. I had signed up for his mailing list, because I wanted to keep an eye on him. […]

God Hates Milk

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

(Image from Yarn Harlot) If you do a Google search on “fundie”, you sometimes find odd things. Such as fundie milk. Hill Country Gal picks up the story: So, we were at the grocery store & Hubby walked over to get some milk. I NEVER drink the stuff so it’s his job to pick out […]

Why Aren’t All Baptist Leaders This Moderate?

Friday, February 8th, 2008

J. Brent Walker is Executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee. He is a regular contributor to the On Faith column at Newsweek/Washingon Post. This week’s article is titled “Secularism, Properly Understood, Is Not a Bad Word”. He writes: Has this year’s presidential campaign become too religious? I would say yes. All we hear about […]
