God Still Thinks Women Are Dirty.

Found this on Ex Fundamentalist.

This answers the ancient question of whether a woman who is menstruating should read the Islamic Sky Fairy book.

What Would An Atheist Haunted House Look Like?

It would certainly have this guy in it.

Absolutely Darth Pedophilus

And of course this emissary from the religion of peace.

Don't worry, monsters aren't real.

You Don't Have A Right Not To Be Offended

James Madison,
Father of the Constitution
I'm the human rights officer at my job site (I work in a residence with men who have brain injuries). Broadly speaking if there are any human rights complaints, abuses, or questions, the clients and/or staff have they talk to me. Luckily there aren't many issues to be dealt with. The clients have been living together for over fifteen years and are quite emotionally invested in their home. Also, the staff are a fairly reasonable lot. This leaves me with little to do besides running the occasional training. However, I am required to attend a retraining on the company's human rights policy once every two years.

A Crazy Person Tells Other Crazy People To Stop Talking The Crazy

See, Pat just wants the GOP candidates to hide the crazy in a Trojan Horse until after one of them beats Obama, and then it will be crazy time.

All the time.

Women Need To Sit In The Back Of This Bus

Where do I sit on bus
Quick! What country is this post going to be about? Where does a bus have signs that read "when boarding a crowded bus with standing passengers in the front, women should board the back door after paying the driver in the front,” and “when the bus is crowded, passengers should stand in their designated areas." (Designated areas meaning men in the front and women in the back.)

What I'm doing To Celebrate The Universe's Birthday

James Ussher doing some
faith based math.
 Bring out the party hats, tonight is the universe's birthday!

What? You didn't know that James Ussher, the 16th-17th century scholar, tabulated the creation to have occurred the evening before October 23, 4004 BC?

Shame on you.

Here's the itinerary of what I'm doing to celebrate.

7:30PM: Walking into one of the many taverns I frequent in the greater Boston area. 

7:45: Not impressing my drinking companions with the otherwise useless knowledge regarding James Ussher and the date he set for creation.

7:50: First pint promptly consumed.

Put The Pope On Trial.

I found this on the Occupy the Vatican's Facebook page. I've been saying for a while that that Vatican City needs regime change. I don't think the Swiss Guards will shoot at any protesters.

Pet Ministries Are Growing -- World Continues To Go To Hell

Some dogs go to Hell.
I have to warn you about the article today's post is based on,  Churches Take Steps to Show Their Love for Animals. Even though it does not contain any graphic depictions of violence, its cup doth overflows with so much idiocy that it may cause momentary lightheadedness and/or the desire to hit one's head against a perfectly innocent wall.

Andy The Dick

Beware of tigers
on cereal boxes.
The Wife and I were discussing our parenting strategies for the kids the other day. Now both of us are generally on the same page on the core of virtues we want to instill in the kids: hard work, independent thinking, getting a good education, the ability to hold your own water (she would phrase it as demonstrating good impulse control), a sense of right and wrong (in that Enlightenment/human rights kinda way), and never ever going on any Jersey Shore-ish reality show. There are more characteristics we hope to instill, of course, but that gives you a fair idea where we're (and I hope many parents) coming from.

Why Jesus Should Be Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity

And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

Child Sacrifice By Witchdoctors In Uganda

Child sacrifice is apparently alive and well in Uganda. You read that correctly, witchdoctors are sacrificing children to ensure the success of personal and/or business ventures. And this isn't FOX news or spreading this story either. This is from the BBC.
The ritual, which some believe brings wealth and good health, was almost unheard of in the country until about three years ago, but it has re-emerged, seemingly alongside a boom in the country's economy.

Amish-On-Amish Hair-Based Terrorism

First, the Amish were rebelling against "worldly symbols" on their buggies. Now, there has been an alarming amount of beard/hair terrorism being practised in Jefferson County, Ohio. The victims as well as the culprits are Amish.

Really. You read that correctly.
Members of a group of families disavowed by mainstream Amish have cut the beards off men and the hair off a half-dozen or more men and women, Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said. He said the cutting apparently was meant to be degrading.
The assailants had been thrown out of the greater Amish community because of their being in what one victim calls a cult. The local county sheriff, Fred Abdalla, reports that he has his hands full with this case.
Abdalla said the motive may be related to unspecified religious differences involving 18 Amish families, 17 of them related, who have drawn previous attention from law enforcement, including a threat against the sheriff and a relative convicted of sexual contact with a minor.

A Blessing Of Pets

I found this on my travels recently. Unfortunately it had just rained and the picture isn't of the highest quality. However, you can still see the craziness: Pets had the chance to roll into the Eliot Street Church and get themselves blessed.

Ironically a few feet away was a poster for a lost cat. I guess the owners didn't love him or her enough to get blessed.

Top Ten Reasons Why Easter Is Scarier Than Halloween.

Too cute to be trusted.
10. Halloween costumes are far less scary than your best Sunday church clothes. Do you know what my costume was last year? I had my regular street clothes on with one of those name tags that they give you at lame conferences. I wrote Cornelius on it, and proceeded to spout Fight Club references throughout the night. That was a lot more fun than being tortured in ill fitting clothes my parents made me wear for church.

9. All that crappy, plastic green grass that are in those Easter baskets. Yep, that's my goal in life: Use as many disposable plastic items made from Chinese slave labor and foreign petrochemicals.

New Poll - Which Of The Four Horsemen Is Your Favorite

God's Horsemen are a bit less friendly

For being such a nerd/geek I am not much of a fanboy (Joss Whedon is my only exception). I have seen celebrities in person. Well, many may not consider them celebrities, but I do. I've run across Cornell West (he was having lunch in Harvard Sq), Eleanor Clift (she is really short), and of course Harry Markopolos (he lives in my town and his kids go to the same dojo as mine). At no point have I gushed or begged for them to give me a dollop of their wisdom.

I don't do that.

I leave people alone.

Are You Addicted To God? Take This Test!

Friends don't let friends
use God.

I found this Alcoholism Screening Quiz and changed drinking with God or God a related word.

1. Do you lose time from work because of God?

2. Is God making your homelife unhappy?

3. Do you go to church because you are shy around other people?

4. Is God affecting your reputation?

Dominionism On NPR

I was listening to to Fresh Air on NPR today and thought I had to share this with you. Terry Gross, the host of the show, did an interview with C. Peter Wagner who is a leader of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). The NAR preaches that Christ centered leaders need to have dominion over the different spheres of our lives like the business world, the arts and entertainment industry, and of course, government. 

Mr Wagner has some interesting ideas on how the world works. Before giving a snapshot of the Fresh Air interview here he is describing how the Emperor of Japan had sex with a demon.  Really. Check it out.

I've gotta wonder that if sex with a demon caused Japan's fiscal collapse, what did George W. Bush have intercourse with? The Prince of Darkness himself? I imagine gay demonic sex is worse than the Emperor of Japan having heterosexual demonic sex.

Military Chaplains Can Now Marry Homosexual Soldiers -- World Expected To End Soon.

Gays getting married?
When will it start
raining frogs?
Good news, fellow Purgatorians. The Family Research Council is standing tall to protect Christian America from the perils of gay marriage. The Department of Defense released this memo last Friday.
A military chaplain may participate in or officiate any private ceremony, whether on or off a military installation, provided that the ceremony is not prohibited by applicable state and local law,
However, military chaplains will not be forced to officiate ceremonies that are against their enlightened heavenly despot's dogma.
Further a chaplain is not required to participate in or officiate a private ceremony if doing so would be in variance with the tenets of his or her religion.
The Family Research Council shot back on their site with this post  FRC Criticizes Defense Department for Approving Same-Sex 'Weddings' on Military Bases (*note the clever application of apostrophes around Weddings.)
It is outrageous that only ten days after repeal of the law against homosexuality in the Armed Forces, the Defense Department is already pushing the military further down the slippery slope. The repeal law passed by the lame-duck Congress last year said nothing about authorizing same-sex 'weddings' on military bases or by military chaplains.  
You know, that slippery slope is a very popular rhetorical device. Historically speaking, whenever people wanted to fear monger about the legalization of interracial marriage, women voting, or  alcohol, one needed only to invoke the slippery slope! Once upon the slope one is destined to slide into a pit of iniquity and eventually society will crumble into a mess of bestiality, pedophilia, and Huns (in case one likes Roman history).
I urge the Obama administration to end its multi-front attack upon marriage, and I urge the Senate to act upon the legislation which would forbid this further exploitation of our military to advance a radical social agenda," concluded Perkins.
To listen to Mr Perkins, the president of FRC's council, President Obama is invading marriage with a multi-front blitzkrieg for homosexual lebensraum.

I think not.

America is not a Christian state.

Myth should not rule over reason.

This is Purgatory.

Four Things People Should Be Doing Than

I found this ad on the Atheism page on Facebook. I thought of a few better things for the attendees to do.


 Read the Bible.  The best way create more atheists is for the religious to actually read their Bible. Genocide, misogyny, and slavery, are all endorsed by the all loving Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
