What does it matter if the “fragment” actually comes from where it was initially said to have come from? Would that make it any more fake than the New Testament? [...]

Irregular Times Schooled on Biblical Morality: It’s OK to kill entire races if they’re Evil Races

Samaroo Joel writes in to Irregular Times, hoping to set us straight on genocide in the Bible.

Dear friend,

I was reading your article titled “secretes of the Bible”. You quoted two verses from the Bible to proof that God of the Bible promotes Genocide. But you ignored thousands of other verses which promotes to [...]

Why Can’t You Pick Out Just What You Like From The Bible?

If you’re going to be a Christian, the only way to do it that makes sense is to be a Cafeteria Christian. Cherry pick. Grab that holy book and shake it like a bag of trail mix, eat it up, and spit out the stale old nuts. If the raisins are offensive to you, toss them aside. [...]

Newt Gingrich’s Latest Visionary Proposal: Publish An Old Book!

Newt Gingrich says he’s a visionary, but when asked what his vision is, Gingrich can’t do anything but wave an old book in his hands. [...]

Kansas House Speaker Presents Test Of The Power Of Prayer

Schlingensiepen and McCollough are themselves pursuing a nasty path of Christian theocracy as they state that it is unacceptable for anyone in public office to “abuse” the Bible, to cite their holy text in a way that they don’t approve of. That’s establishing a religious test for public office, which is specifically prohibited by the Constitution. [...]

Leviticus declares that “You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind”. That’s men and women. It doesn’t say anything about what ewoks or wookies should do. [...]

Biggest UU Congregation Reflects UUA Christian Dominance

In Tulsa’s local version of Unitarian Universalism, I found the very same problem I’ve seen elsewhere. Unitarian Universalism claims to be diverse, and claims to be welcoming, but when non-Christians walk through the door, they find themselves left in a corner, ignored at best, and often belittled. [...]

Jack Fellure for President Against Bacon and Butter 2012!

If Jack Fellure were elected President, Americans would be forbidden from eating no bacon and butter, because of a perpetual ban in the King James Bible on eating fat. [...]

My Favorite Word in the Bible Is…

Shittim.

Hands down. 32 times in the Bible, that shittim. There’s nothing substantive I have to say about the word. It’s juvenile, I admit, but I just bliss out whenever my eyes come by it. Shittim, shittim, shittim.

Although God’s obsession over the various decorative uses of shittim wood in Exodus blows Queer Eye for [...]

Sour Cabbage: by word count, the Real Whopper of a Bureaucracy is Biblical

Is all you need to know about bureaucracy reduced to cabbage? Or could we find something a little bit wordier? Time for a conservative chain mail fact check. [...]

God’s Genocide: it’s not just an Old Testament thing

The Old Testament of the Bible is filled with instances in which the character of God directs his followers to commit genocide, ordering them to slaughter entire cities of men, women, children and babies for the offense of worshipping the wrong deity. Sometimes, especially if some people rub the wrong body parts, God takes care [...]
