Bill Donohue is Such an Asshat

Yes, it’s been over two fucking months since I posted something to my blog. There’s been a lot going on. I’ll cover more about that later. I still don’t even know if I’ll continue hosting this blog here, or if I’m going to end up moving it to another server where I have other sites. …

Sometimes Persecution ends in Death: Remembering Giordano Bruno

410 years ago today a man was killed because of what he believed. Giordano Bruno believed that the Earth is not the center of the Universe. He believed that our sun is but one of countless moving objects in our Universe. He believed that there are many worlds such as our own throughout the Universe. …

Judith

Maynard James Keenan has explained that this song is about his mother, Judith Marie Keenan, who was restricted to a wheelchair for the rest of her life after suffering a stroke.

Pssst… It’s Okay if You Don’t Really Believe in God

Yes, I know I shouldn’t be giving away secrets like this. Your family members would probably come after me with a mob of villagers carrying torches and pitchforks if they only knew what I was about to divulge. [Look left… Look right… Coast is clear.] It’s okay if you don’t really believe in God. Yes, …

The Bane That Is No More

It seems that my Evangelical Blogstalker took time today to respond to several comments on the This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things post. He left no fewer than seven responses from 10:37 to 10:50 am (Eastern Time). I’m going to take a look at them one at a time. I won’t leave any …

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

This is why we can't have nice things

My post of 17 November, “Won’t Someone Please Think Of The Bigots?!?!”, prompted a response from my favorite Evangelical Christian Fruitcake, zdenny. [Actually, it prompted an exchange between zdenny and several others who took turns pointing out the utter stupidity of his claims.] I have to say that zdenny responded in a way that I …

Won’t Someone Please Think Of The Bigots?!?!

That’s right: Someone needs to think of the children bigots! Their rights are being trampled on! They’re being persecuted and repressed, and someone needs to consider their tender feelings! The religious right in general, and the Archdiocese of Washington in particular, are up in arms about the Washington DC City Council. What is the Council …
