Pro Tip: It’s not a violation of your religious freedoms…

PRO TIP: It’s not a violation of your religious freedoms (or, religious “rights” if you prefer) to be expected to do your job. If your job entails conducting same-sex marriages, or issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, etc., etc., etc., then that’s the job.

David Gee, writing at Friendly Athiest: As one detective made clear, this was not consensual because of the victim’s age and the pastor’s manipulative tactics.

Everything is an example of anti-Christian bias if you’re too lazy to do any research

Friendly Athiest: Last month, I posted about how Mayor Amy Schuler Goodwin of Charleston, West Virginia renamed the town’s annual “Christmas Parade” to the “Charleston Winter Parade.” That lasted for all of a couple of days. The backlash was so intense, and the fight wasn’t one Goodwin was eager to take on, that she reversed […]

Reason: Don’t Destroy the Constitution To Fight Drag Queen Reading Hour

Steven Greenhut writing at Reason.com: The Sacramento public library featured a drag-queen story hour, in which men dressed as women read stories to children.

AP: 12 things to know about the end of the world?

Cute video. Covers several of the major apocalyptic theories (Talk about “just a theory”!!!), as well as a number of previous (and obviously, incorrect) end-of-days predictions. I truly appreciate that the AP includes in their coverage of the Rapture an important point that most Christians either never knew, or conveniently forget: “The Bible records Jesus […]
