Notorious Ex-Gay Conversion 'Therapy' Ministry Apologizes, Will Close Its Doors

Exodus International Ministry, the conservative institution which promoted the idea that orientation could be changed through a close relationship with God, 'therapy,' and sheer determination, announced Wednesday that it would be closing its doors. The institution, which has been open for more than forty years, declared its intentions to close on its website less than a day after releasing an apology to the LGBT community. 

Here are some fascinating statements from the now…

So a Christian doesn't tolerate my views - why be so annoyed?

Just why can’t we let some things go? Why do some things bother us more than others? Why do some things bother some people more than other people? These are things about which I deem myself to have some insight; hopefully more than some, since I’m a therapist working somewhere within the psychotherapy field.

Let’s break it down: put very simply, there are three types of recognised personalities within psychology. One is a very sensitive type, prone to traits of emotional delicateness,…

Out Of The Randomness

One argument that I tackled in an earlier post was the fine tuning argument. I thought about it for a while, and I thought of one of my interests: Astronomy. I realized that there are thousands of galaxies and millions of stars and planets out there. So are we really "fine tuned"? Why us and not any one of the other millions of planets? Why haven't we found life on other planets? For those of you who do not know much about cosmology or astronomy there is a certain Goldilocks zone that a…

Prayer As An Answer

For hundreds of years it has been thought that this world is a result of God. God made everything we see, hear, touch, etc. but is this really the case? In science, once a theory has been proposed it is tested in a way to try to disprove it. If it cannot be disproved, then it works. Does God work?

In an earlier post i took some religious claims and how science has refuted them. In a way I am simply continuing… Continue

Christians, Stop Using the "Well there were eyewitnesses" Defense

As I enter more and more into the debate world, there is a peculiar phenomena that I find when debating Christians. It is the belief that eyewitness testimony is at all reliable. Especially so when it comes to the divinity of Yeshua (Jesus). Unfortunately this is completely wrong when it comes to proving the bibles validity. There is no presupposition here. It's pure fact from study and research. Let's take a look at the account that Christians give when it comes to the Bibles historic content… Continue

Boycott The Scouts

 

 

It has long been common knowledge that Boy Scouts of America and the LGBT Community or indeed the Atheist Community don’t exactly see eye to eye. 

The Boy Scouts of America is a large private youth organisation in the United States. I has very strict policies which prohibit atheists from membership in its…

The Edifi (aka the godPad)

So it seems that the Christians have taken a new low now, by releasing their very own "Christian Tablet" they are calling The Edifi. 

Get this the Edifi, is equipped with its own web browser with a "safe search" built into it. In order words, its their nifty little way to censor its users shamelessly in order to avoid too much…

"Please Help Us Take Back America from the Godless Left - and Buy our Stupid DVD."

I got an automated call today from a stupid far-right fundraising crowd claiming to be behind Newt Gingrich. I'm disappointed the whole thing was automated... I REALLY wanted to have fun with these morons.

"We have reserved a copy of our DVD Documentary "Bringing America Back to God" (or something like that... I don't remember what it was actually called) so that you can help us to fight back against the power of the godless left and teach children the truth about why god was central…

I Am Going To Read The Bible

I grew up in a family that went to church on holidays and said grace before meals, so you could say we weren't the strictest Christian family, we just worshipped when it was most convenient. From a early age I always questioned everything especially religion! It was always so frustrating when I asked a question and the only answer I ever seemed to get was, "That is the way the lord wants it." I always thought that was one bogus excuse of an answer.

One day I even asked my mom why God…

Christian Pilot Goes Nuts... another reason religious nutcases shouldn't fly planes?

No one knows what set him off. But apparently on March 27th Pilot Captian Clayton F. Osbon lost his head completely. Although most of his ranting was incoherent, a lot of it appeared to be religious in nature. The flight was supposed to be traveling from New York to Las Vegas. However, Captain Osbon stated in the middle of the flight '"we're not going to vegas' because of its 'sins' and used the radio to admonish air traffic controllers to 'be quiet." - Source: NY Times National Issue…

Two alligators discuss a diet of Christians

Two Alligators were sitting around talking, and the smaller Alligator turned to the bigger one & said, 'I can't understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We're the same age; we were the same size as kids. I just don't get it.'



 'Well,' said the big Gator, 'what have you been eating?'



 'Christians, same as you,' replied the small Gator.



 'Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?'



 'Down the other side of the swamp near the parking lot by the…

Fundamentalist Christian family, atheist me.

There once was a time when I was the most faithful and religious of them all... But through the process of higher education, and the use of logic and critical thinking, I could no longer deny the fact that I had grown into a full-blown atheist, leaving my parents and my brothers and sister behind in Never-never Land. I did not intend to tell them about it...not for a while at least (I planned on moving out first). I was reading Christopher Hitchens' "God Is Not Great" and left it on the…

A new email conversation I'm having with a YouTube acquaintance...

Legally backed/obliged faith

  Here in the Islamic wacky land of Indonesia the devout are everywhere. Running too and fro  humming, mumbling, beating drums, reciting, and handing coins to beggars for everyone to see. Obsessing over Islamic rules first stated in popular hearsay manuals like Bhukari's hadith, all the while turning a blind eye to the playing out of such social taboos as homosexuality, kissing, drinking and basically any western "too free society" influence on TV daily, or on the streets of Jakarta…

Two Christians Walk Into a Bar

In my case, not a bar but a park. I do a lot of mountain biking and in between laps is a rest area. Yesterday 2 men were sitting there for over 2 hours talking about how they KNEW they were going to heaven. I didn't listen to the whole conversation. Only the bits and pieces I was able to…

The Evolution of Morality

I am attacked regularly for the supposed oxymoron in the name @Moral_Atheist. The claims are often like the following all from this last weekend.

 

From: @RonaldusMagnus1

there IS NO logical basis for morals in an evolutionist-atheist viewpoint. Nature takes it's course, no?

 

From: @clergywomen

Comment on blog: WE ARE A CANCER ON THIS EARTH, etc

It appears that there is some sort of comment restriction on the "WE ARE A CANCER..." blog post, so I am posting it again so that members may comment and discuss.

Before I can go any further I need those who care to read any of my passages to comment in the way of questions(for example...are you saying...) so I can explain my words before offering interpretations or responsive opinion as these are words I know you have…

Being raised christian with a rational mind

Ever since I was born my parents have always told me there was a god but no santa clause or tooth fairy. I didn't understand how they expected me to understand why god was invisible and never speaking up for himself. It was hard for me, but I believed with all my might and became what you'd call a hardcore christian. I feared for my soul and everyone else's and never wanted to be raptured because there was so much work to do with all these atheists and catholics.... Really funny now that I…
