Chaplain Patrick Conroy, you can’t it both ways. Do you want your big spirit in the sky to control members of Congress, or do you want them to think for themselves? [...]

Breatharian Prahlad Jani Caught with a Refrigerator in his “Cave”

Hilarious!

Remember Prahlad Jani, the devout man of India said to live in a cave and claiming neither to have eaten nor to have had anything to drink for 70 years? He’s one of many breatharians who make that sort of claim, and he’s gotten a lot of media attention for it. Why, the newspapers [...]

Palin Believes God and Witch Fighter Made Her Governor

When Thomas Muthee first visited Alaska, Sarah Palin, hearing of Muthee’s witch-fighting prowess, asked Muthee to pray over her to give her the power to become Governor of Alaska. Just a few weeks ago, Palin said that it was this magical ceremony that enabled her to become Governor. Does the USA want to send someone who believes in witches and the divine appointment of rulers to the White House? Isn’t this all just too medieval for the 21st century? [...]

Very First DNC Speaker Claims God Working for the Democrats

You know, the speeches given at the 2008 Democratic National Convention are not casual affairs. They’re not idiosyncratic expressions of individual notions. They’re read, re-read and carefully vetted by committees of Democratic Party bureaucrats to ensure that the ideas expressed in them are consistent with the message and tone the DNC wants to convey. So [...]

Whether People Think Faith-Based Initiatives Work Better, or Whether They Actually Do?

During his religious interrogation of the presidential candidates, entrepreneurial evangelical pastor Rick Warren inserted his own opinion on subjects fairly frequently. Take, for instance, this utterance to a national audience watching via CNN and CSPAN:

A recent poll says 80% of Americans think faith-based organizations do a better job at community services than the [...]

Barack Obama Reveals That He Is The Instrument of God’s Will

You know, when George W. Bush declared on July 9, 2004 that “God speaks through me,” we gave him a hard time for it, as well we should have. History is littered with the debris of disasters made by leaders who considered themselves instruments of the Divine. Appeals to the notion that one is being [...]

Golly, I Guess They Wished for a Lawsuit

The team behind The Secret, the book and upcoming movie proclaiming that all you have to do to gain what you desire is to wish for it, is being torn apart by acrimony and a lawsuit.

Ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha.

McCain Spiritual Advisor Says You Can Pay Him For Miracles

The upshot: John McCain’s campaign for President is fueled by snake oil. That’s some awfully dirty biodiesel. [...]
