Wing-Nut Photo of the Week

Friday, February 26th, 2010

I found this on Snopes: Here’s a quiz: What was Snopes’ determination about this picture? I hope you got our quiz question correct! The sad fact, though, is that most of this picture’s target audience will get that question wrong. Why is that? After all, their brains appear to have the capacity to process the [...]

I Was Warned About the Catholic Church!

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Click image to embiggen. (Image from Live Journal Vintage Ads forum.) Sometimes old advertisements are unintentionally prescient. The above ad actually is talking about all of the Catholic-bashing propaganda that Protestant groups love to spread around. It turns out all of those warnings about the Catholic Church were right, but for the wrong reasons. (Comic [...]

Three Articles to Check Out

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

I came across three interesting articles this last week. I thought I’d pass them along. Somebody Went Postal on Him Over at the WFMU blog is “The Ballad Of The Walking Postman”. It’s a tale from the Civil Rights Era. Here’s what WFMU says about it: Today’s musical selection tells the story of Bill Moore, [...]

An Examination of that Wirthless Book, Slaughter of the Dissidents

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

(Click image to embiggen) Long-time Bay of Fundie readers are familiar with crackpot creatard Kevin Wirth, his crackpot creatard buddy Jerry Bergman, and Kevin’s endless shilling of Bergman’s book Slaughter of the Dissidents. As bad as books such as The Secret and Going Rogue are, at least they’re from reputable publishers who nominally go through [...]

Imagine How Much They’d Spend if They Weren’t “Conservative”

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

(Image from Probably Bad News) I received an email from Mike Huckabee. After discovering in 2008 that there weren’t quite enough fundies (yet) to propel him into the White House, he formed a political action committee. The purpose was to continue to tap fundies for as much money as he could while using that money [...]

Asstroboy

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

(Caption by Eightfold) I bet you guys thought I forgot about this! Way back in August, I posted this genuine bona-fide Astroboy comic book scene and asked if anybody could come up with some good captions. I was expecting to get back to it a couple of weeks later. What I didn’t count on was [...]

Mount Fundie

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Hysterical fundie cartoon by Reverend Fun (Copyright Gospel Communications International, Inc – www.reverendfun.com) One of Northern California’s more prominent peaks is Mount Diablo. The mountain has been called that since the early 1800s. “Diablo” is the Spanish word for “devil”. You can probably anticipate where this story is going. Yup! That’s right! A fundie wants [...]

Carnival of the Godless #134

Monday, February 1st, 2010

The latest Carnival of the Godless is godlessly carnivaling at Right to Think. There’s a bunch of stuff over there. I really liked “Against the Gods: Arguments Against God’s Existence” by Ken at Arizona Atheist. It’s a long, thoughtful argument that refutes many of the arguments for God’s existence. Check it out. I also have [...]
