Do you yearn for a return to “traditional values”? Consider this essay from the Chalcedon Foundation:

I’ve been Daddy’s girl from Day One. My first word was “Dada.” I’ve always wanted to do what Daddy was doing, go where Daddy was going, read what Daddy was reading, say what Daddy was saying…. Little wonder people [...]

How is an Eternity of Tarnation for Non-Eternal Sin OK?

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up [...]

Not the Voice of God You’re Hearing? Sound Check!

A friend who participates in a Facebook group called the “Christian Left” shared this image with me the other day. I wonder if my friend has read the Bible lately. Consider the acts of God and the commands by the voice of God in these books of the Bible:

Would You Wear Atheist Shoes?

If you are in the camp of declaring your non-theistic identity through your footprints, does it change your decision that Atheist Shoes sells a model of their footwear in a color they call Kitten Testicle Grey? [...]

Would You Drink Satanic Coffee?

A Starbucks customer has accused a worker there of putting Satanic symbols on top of her coffee.

I’m not saying that I support the drawing of religious symbols such as a 5-pointed star or three sixes, in the foam on top of a sugary coffee-based confection.

I am struggling to understand the reaction to [...]

Mark Stengler (or someone using his name) is hawking the Matthew 4 Cancer Scam Again

Last month, I started checking into the claims made by someone calling himself “Dr. Mark Stengler” who along with Brian Chambers of Health Revelations was sending me promotional e-mails and links to web pages. These e-mails and web pages, all claiming to come from from Brian Chambers and this “Dr. Mark Stengler,” promise that there [...]

1 Day of Same-Sex Marriages in Michigan Provides a Test of Angry Anti-Gay God Theory

Susanne Atanus, the Republican Party winner in Illinois’ 9th District congressional race, is the latest in a long line of preachers and politicians to proclaim that God controls the weather and uses dire weather to punish political jurisdictions that are kind to gay people:

“I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first,” [...]

Miracle?

News item: A gas explosion destroys a church in New York City, killing five out of its sixty members and three others. Fifty-five families are left homeless.

Another Nail in the Coffin of Remote Intercessory Prayer

Does prayer really work wonders? Not according to epidemiologst Maria Inês da Rosa.
