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… Continue

Song of Solomon 1:1 to 8:11
1:1 This is the best song of all the songs. It was composed by Solomon. Let him kiss me right on the mouth with his mouth.
Your love is better than wine and you are well known for your savory skin lotions. That’s why the virgins all love…

Homosexuality is an unnatural choice.
It's an argument we've probably all heard before, that homosexuals are unnatural. This is completely false. In this blog I'll talk about what is and is not natural and why homosexuality is not a choice.
Everything we do is within nature. Humans have this idea that because we live in cities we are somehow above nature. This is false. We are just one species out of over a million others living on this blue marble we call Earth. Literally… Continue

What a wonderful way to tell WOMEN that if you're bangin' dudes before marriage, then you're knockin' boots with a crazed lunatic set on wiping all Jews off of the face of the map. With syphilis. Stay pure ladies.

I found this article to be very interesting as it basically blames the social times of the 60s and 70s in America for the prolonged problem of sex abuse to young boys from Priests. More notable, there isn't one mention in the study (says the LA Times) that celibacy itself plays a role. Not surprising the Catholics (Vatican) would denote any such allegation that any of their stringent practices, especially the aforementioned one, would have anything to do with anyone in their organization doing… Continue

Two Roman Catholic school workers from New Jersey have pleaded not guilty to charges of having sex with female students during a high school's class trip to Germany.

I'm just going to come out and say it: I have recurring dreams of Penn and Teller threesomes! Dirty, nasty sexy intercourse. I had one of these dreams last night. They did a magic show on a Chinese cruise ship and said they would have sex with fans in the bathroom! And then they did! Different ladies in different stalls. Somehow I got to have sex with both of them. And it was so fucking hot!
And then, in a subsequent dream that same night, Penn turned into an elephant squid, and I swam… Continue

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

From Not My God
Here in the Not My God penthouse, I focus on stories of atheists that are particularly difficult and moving for the purposes of illustration and because this obviously makes for a more interesting book. So if anyone out there thinks I cherry-pick the extremes, yes, I am, but that’s sort of the point.
I found this story on Dawkins’s Converts Corner.
“For many years I was a victim of… Continue

Muslim conservatives in Egypt are calling for a ban on the "Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit," saying it will promote promiscuity. According to a story in the LA Times
, "The kit allows a bride who is not a virgin to pretend that she is. A pouch inserted into the vagina on her wedding night ruptures and leaks a blood-like liquid designed to trick a new husband into believing that… Continue

I was doing a search or two the other day and ran across a site that, at first, seemed to be a joke in a similar vein as the Landover Baptist Church
. But, it is real--real scary. It's Jesus-is-savior.com
It's full of vile hatred and complete nonsense, more than most sites I've seen.
To me, one of the funniest/scariest things, though, has to be the… Continue

This is a video, that has been made to say the there shouldn't be Equality in the world! They think its still ok to discriminate against people for who they are! And they make it look like they are the one who are being attacked. Don't they see that they are doing the same to Gays as they have done to women and blacks all so long ago. Its not a matter of marriage as such but its is a matter of Rights! A couple be it man woman, man man, or woman woman can still be a family. For them they could… Continue

Some Christian views on oral sex.
Since the publication of our original article on anal sex and God’s will, we have received several inquiries asking to clarify God’s position concerning oral sex. We are gratified that so many Christians are hungry for the word of the Lord and are actively seeking the Truth so that they may fulfill His plan in all areas of their lives.

To people who have been tainted by the insidious hand of religion, the human body is a monstrously evil thing that can only be contained by conservative clothing and tamed by marriage. Entertainment containing scenes of gratuitous sex get an "NC-17" or “X” rating. However, just as the Bible is brimming with acts of genocide, rape, murder, and other various atrocities, so are half of the movies we all go to see. Minus snuff films, violent movies and video games get a measly rating of "R" or… Continue
