Church of England Attempt to Punish Priest over Same Sex Marriage

I'm not sure you are all aware of this, but the UK recently legalised same sex marriage and good for them. 

But of course the religious organisations are usually the main groups that always have an objection to equal marriage rights. Except this time they are turning on one other own. The first Church of England priest has married his same sex partner and suffice…

Catholic Church Don't Want Gay Customers

So we have yet again some more hypocrisy and arrogance from the Catholic Church.  The Catholic Church are apparently selling a mansion previously owned by a pedophile. But it seems that the Catholic church is still far too lacking in humbleness, still too arrogant, still to self righteous and still to hypocritical to be willing to seek the property of a gay couple.

Oh they have no problem protecting…

The show started out a in 2011 as a way for me to document my departure from religion. It was rather cathartic. Now I have co-hosts and…

How Jesus' Views on Marriage Proves Yahweh's Laws are NOT Absolute OR Jesus is Mistaken

 



Marriage is still viewed as a sacred institution in our society, although it has different meanings for many people.  Christians view it as a "gift from god," or a"spiritual representation" of their relationship with God.   Truth be told however, the institution of marriage came about for economic reasons, and not out of love for a god, or the love for a potential… Continue

Southern Fried Tyranny With Grits and Hypocrisy

So North Carolina decided that somehow it was a good idea to vote on a civil rights issue seeing how it all worked out so well the first time. This time it wasn’t some racist ideas but it was close enough. It was about gay people having the gall to demand fair treatment under law and be afforded a legal status that is for some reason given only to heterosexual couples. They want to get married.



I’m sorry but there’s this thing called Article 6 of the United States Constitution and…

Dealing with the Facebook friends and family after my state senate just gave okay on gay marriage.

1 Cor 5:10-13... I think I said it last time, but I'll say it again.  Atheists need to know this passage.  It severely restricts Christians from all sorts of undesirable behavior. 

Our state senate voted to allow gays to marry yesterday.  Finally.  This caused a lot of facebook debate in the family and among friends.  My take is that keeping Christians from judging anyone but their own is a very good restriction.…

What Has and Has NOT Changed? (The New and Not-So-New Normal of Marriage Equality)

Near the end of the first act of Kander and Ebb’s musical “Cabaret”, the character Herr Schultz observes, “How the world can change, it can change like that, due to one little word:  ‘Married.’”  Just a little over two weeks ago, on June 24, 2011, it seemed as if the world had changed “like that.”  The State of New York extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples—something it had declined to…

Minnesota Archbishop: Opposing Marriage Equality Is Not Anti-GayMinnesota Archbishop: Opposing Marriage Equality Is Not Anti-Gay

Via ThinkProgress:



Archbishop John C. Nienstedt: “The Minnesota Catholic Conference, made up of the seven Catholic bishops from the state, support this amendment not for prejudicial or political reasons, but rather for reasons that are theological, biological and pastoral.”

Lets assume for a second that the…

Anti-gay Christians just want to preserve their religious freedoms?

Thousands of conservative Christian rallied in NC for a ban of gay marriage.

 

Carrying Christian and American flags, over 3500 Christians gathered in the streets of the capitol of NC. Why? So they could show the world just how many ignorant fools there are in the state of North Carolina.

 

The article from…

I am ashamed to be American today.

For the very first time in my life, I am actually ashamed to be American.

Despite the overt disgust churning in my stomach right now, I'm hesitant to write this.

It goes against everything I stand for. I'm American. I love my country. After traveling the world, I know this is an amazing place. I'm patriotic and political. I believe in change from within.

 

But then this.…

marriage

I've seen discussions in the community about marriage among atheists. Some people don't feel that it is necessary to be married. That is totally up to the life style that you chose to live. There certainly are benefits that come from marriage, and there is nothing religious about it.



In these discussions, people were talking about our rights and benefits. I think that a lot were left out so I decided to make a list for myself.



On the order of 1,400 legal rights are conferred… Continue

Ray McCauley

I am going to forcefully limit myself to a single post about Ray McCauley unless he does something this hypocritical or annoying again, otherwise I could continue ranting eternally.



Ray McCauley, popular South African televangelist, founder and leader of a 40 000 strong congregation and the Rhema Bible Church, which even has its own channel, is getting divorced for the second time.

Hi, I'm a cherry-picker.

Warning: the following is a giant rant about Christians in a community college philosophy class in central Texas. If you are not in the mood to be mired in a massive pile of negativity, you may want to click your browser's back button.



I just got back from Ethics class, where the question of the day was, "Should same-sex marriage be allowed?" I wrote… Continue

The Woman's Role in the Home

I've been writing this series over on my blog http://AngietheAntiTheist.blogspot.com I've put this passage in it's entirety here, and the links for comments on this post, and follow-up posts in the series, are provided at the end.



Looking at "The Woman's Role in the Home" by Christian homeschooling mother Rachel Harkins makes me want to wash out my eyes with bleach. Or acid.

I enjoy coming up with acrostics…

Please Support Marriage Equality in CA

While the battle to overturn Proposition 8 in California rages, Pres. Obama has remained silent on this obvious violation of human rights. His voice could hold tremendous sway in tipping the balance in our favor so it is of the utmost importance that we make our voices heard and demand true change. Please sign this petition, it will be delivered directly to the White House with all of your signatures. Even if you don't believe in internet petitions, it can't hurt to add your name.

Thank… Continue

Homophobia

I really cannot understand it. Every day here in Texangelical Hell, I am surrounded by a constant and persistent undercurrent of homophobia. Often the gay-bashing is quite blatant as derogatory slurs and obscene references are casually tossed into conversation; these comments are usually fueled by a touted “disgust” for homosexual practices. This is irritating, but largely dismissive as I find that it only brands the speaker as childish and incapable of rational adult… Continue

Facebook Debate: The Purpose of Sex

So, this discussion is still on-going (more or less) but I thought I'd post it here anyway for anyone who would like to read it.



It all started when one of my xtian friends posted this picture:

Along with the caption: "Seriously, do it for the kids. Doesn't get more Catholic/Pro Life than that."



It should be noted that he posted this in a folder labeled "Random/Funny/Sarcastic Humor/etc"

However, because… Continue

Maine, Marriage Equality, and Lessons

Several friends and a number of my YouTube subscribers have asked me to weigh in on the electoral success of Proposition 1 in Maine, which repealed a statute enacted by the Maine legislature and signed into law by its governor that extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples in the state. 53% voted to repeal the statute, 47% voted to retain it – a result similar to the 2008 vote for Proposition 8 in California (52% in favor, 48% against), but well short of the trouncing same-sex… Continue
