By Alex Murashko , Christian Post Reporter
February 26, 2013|7:40 am

Evangelist Ray Comfort says he's deluged with so many questions and comments from atheists on his Facebook page that he's decided to recruit Christians to join the online conversation between hundreds if not thousands of…

Are you kidding me with this...."Find God's match for you"

Does anyone else find this slogan for christianmingle.com unbelievably hypocritical.  When speaking to most fundamentalist Christians I have found that they will generally say that God will basically make everything happen.  God will provide everything for them no matter how great or small.  This dating site slogan is so repulsive to me that I felt I had to ignite a discussion about it.  It's just more of the same, say one thing and mean another all the time with some Christians.  Sometimes…

A Hell of a choice: Christians try to whitewash one of their most awful beliefs

There has been some discussion about the topic of Hell over at Psychology Today[1] recently. You might even  say it's a hot topic! (Sorry.) Psychologist Nathan Heflick wrote about the psychological aspects of the subject and invited readers to share why they personally believe in Hell. Humanistic blogger Greg Henriques, took a…

Christian Bigots

Nice to see Christianity being so hypocritical.  Note the guy shouting at the Muslim "what kind of God would tell you to kill somebody because you don't believe in their God?"  Not the most coherent of sentences but he seems to have forgotten all about Christian history and how people were routinely tortured and murdered if they were classed as a worshipper of Satan or an unbeliever in their God.  I would also ask "what type of God sends people to hell for not knowing about him, not knowing…

So, you wan't a war on Christmas...

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

 

In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).

Sometimes they will…

WikiLeaks reveals Vatican's lack of willingness to cooperate with sex abuse investigations

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

Seriously, that the Vatican wouldn’t want to cooperate with investigations regarding sex abuse is no news. But the Wikileaks cables are one of the most concrete pieces of evidence (perhaps the most concrete) that we have about the Vatican’s hypocrisy and how unwilling Ratzinger and his minions are to…

I Did Not Suspect That Coming...Regarding The Spanish Inquisition

Imagine my surprise when the door suddenly opens and people run in yelling, "YOU DONT BELIEVE IN GOD?"

"NO ONE EVER SUSPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!!"



maybe I should have started out writing about how my evening went last night (night before Thanksgiving) and then giving the Monty Python 'Spanish Inquisition' punch line near the end of this post- either way, holy tits...they came out of no where. I am hangin' with the bros drinking a fine Belgian wheat ale and playing some liars… Continue

If Atheists acted like Christians

I took my children to the park last weekend. The weather was perfect for it. Well we were not alone. There was a church gathering there of some sort. I was playing with with my sons, minding my own beezwax. When this middle-aged woman holding a bible in her hands, invited us to her church and told us how much jesus loved me and my children. I told her the same thing I tell any theist who feels the need to tell me about there religion. I'm not interested. I also told her I was spending quality… Continue

Why Do You Believe In God?

Who Told You That You Are A Sinner?



Your church? But wait, don't fret! There's a magic cure, and your church

just happens to have it! (Of course some might suggest that your church

has merely cut you in order to sell you a band-aid...)



Did Adam And Eve Sin?



They disobeyed God by eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (right and wrong). So, yes...Right?



Just one problem. How could Adam and Eve have been expected… Continue

Atheists - The New Panda Bears

(note: This is a re-print of a blog from my own site. It is a response to a conversation that I had on Facebook with a very well-meaning Christian. You can definitely respond here but if you'd like her to see any comments then please see the link to the original blog at the bottom. The original has working links to the original sources - I didn't have time to re-format them for this blog).



You may not have known this but Panda Bears were the Bigfoots (that just sounds weird. I wanted… Continue

Using The Christian Bible against Christian Theists.


If Christianity is correct, why did the God of the bible have so many contradictions to the teachings of his son, but yet you can say that Judaism is incorrect, which is a little ridiculous considering they follow the bible more closely?

You might say that they interpret it differently then you do, but how can you explain the stories in the bible describing how the Jews where God's chosen people, before the coming of Jesus!?

...more to come.

Burn the Koran Day

by Tommi Avicolli-Mecca, 2010-07-29



The same creepy Gainesville, Florida folks who gave us the “no homo

mayor” campaign (to protest an openly gay candidate for mayor) and who

claim that queers hate good ol’ American free speech because they “don’t

want to hear the truth about their perverted lifestyles,” will now

present “International Burn a Koran Day.” To commemorate…

What Faith and Blogs have in common

Today, all around the Internet, especially on facebook and the like, there was a story moving with vicious veracity, that President Obama had canceled the National Day of Prayer. This, of course, is not true! It was cancelled by Judge Barbara Crabb from Wisconsin. She is the same judge that handed down the controversial Wisconsin Walleye War ruling in 1987. But I am sure that she will be remembered for this instead. Since, no one outside of Wisconsin knows what the hell… Continue

Scary YouTube Messages

So first off, apparently a group of Internet Christians have been trying to get people on YouTube to... well what they're trying to do is actually my first question. I don't know what their intent is. Some of my vidder friends (we all are the vidding community because we all make fanvideos - music videos using clips from our favorite movies and TV shows) said they had received similar messages in the past. I talk to many of these vidder friends of mine on twitter, so to share my extreme… Continue

What is your heaven?

I became a Christian just over a year ago now and although I had believe for most of my life before that (bar a few years as a "radical atheist"), I was never in the Christian community then and so I lacked knowledge of how to become a Christian and more specific knowledge about the faith.

One of those things that was explained to me then was the concept of forgiveness and salvation - now although I knew of this before, it was more the specifics that I didn't know - before you are "saved"… Continue

The First of Many Headaches...

I attend a small, local college in Northwest Florida, right along the southern part of the Bible Belt.

The college isn't very big, and just recently upgraded from a simple community college to a full four-year college. Many of us call it 13th grade, and it makes for a very tight-nit feeling with many of the students and professors, which is nice.



For as long as I've attended (over three years now, including dual-enrollment during the latter part of high school), there has always… Continue
