Since the state of Oklahoma has set a precedence for allowing donated religious monuments to be placed on state land, a Satanic temple is now wanting the state to
display their monument. While I'm
sure the state will deny them approval, rest assured that a lawsuit will come out of this, which is always a win for non-Christians.
Google won their ridiculous case against Oracle, who wanted $6 billion because Google used 9 lines of code from Oracle to do something as trivial as array checking. For those of you not computer language savvy,
it would be like Burger King suing McDonald's for $6 billion in damages because they copied their bathroom hand-washing poster. Thanks to a computer-competent judge, Goggle won, but now Microsoft, EMC, and Netapp
are backing Oracle for an appeal.

Three black high school students were standing on the side of the road in Rochester, New York on Wednesday, November 27th. A police officer saw them and demanded that they disperse because they were blocking
foot traffic on the sidewalk. The boys insisted that they were waiting for a bus to take them to their school's basketball game, but the police officer refused to believe them. An argument ensued and the officer
arrested all three. But even after their coach and parents spoke on the teens' behalf and assured the police that they were indeed waiting for a bus, the police refused to let them go. Obviously, they missed their
game, and they were even going to miss their family's Thanksgiving holiday, but their parents paid $200 in bail to
get them out. And now the million dollar question, would the cop have
responded in such a manner if the teen boys were white?

Dave Ramsey is a financial adviser who suggests donating money to churches will help you get rich, but also offers a list of things rich people do that poor people don't, like eat right, exercise, and read more

Republican Rick Saccone is trying to make a law to force Pennsylvannian public schools to display the message "In God We Trust" to all their students. The money being spent on forcing his religion down the
throat of students could be used on text books or better equipment, but that's a Republican for you. Saccone even had a chat with an honors-level politics class and the local news reported that the students were
in favor of the bill. Except that a lot of the students have been saying just the opposite! That the majority of them disagree with the bill and that Saccone wouldn't give straight-forward answers any of their

The administrators of Northwest Rankin High School in Mississippi forced their students to attend a Christian sermon which naturally led to complaints. Without a letter of how they won't let this happen again,
or even an apology, a lawsuit was filed against the school board. With the long history of precedence against schools forcing religion on students, the school lost and must now pay $15,000 in legal fees. But since
they're a school, they're not paying with their own money, they're paying with the local
taxpayer's money. Hopefully, the voters in Rankin
will remember that during the next voting cycle. Hopefully, a similar outcome will occur at Fayette High School in Missouri where a teacher has been telling students they'll be punished by God, and using the
school's facilities to have prayer meetings on campus, but to Fox News,
she's a martyr.

As many of you already know, the horrific excuse for a human being, Sylvia Browne, is now dead. She predicted she would die at 88, but years of chain smoking cut that short. Browne made a career out of
pretending to hear messages from dead people (who later turned out to be alive), and had just set up a book tour before
kicking the bucket. Just another failed prediction in a
long line of failed predictions.

That Muslim president of ours omitted "under God" from the Gettysburg Address, is the cry of many
dishonest Conservatives! Of course,
the original Gettysburg Address, much like the original Pledge of Allegiance, did not contain the phrase "under God," and Obama is a Christian who attends a Christian church regularly, and has encouraged several
pro-Christian policies to be made. And even if he were a Muslim, Muslims believe in God too!

The Catholic Diocese of Illinois has issued an ultimatum to the YMCA. If the young men's club wants to continue receiving $60,000 a year from the church, they must sever all ties with groups that want to treat
homosexuals like human beings. The YMCA has bravely told the Catholics to piss off, but they are really hoping that other caring people will
pick up the slack. The Catholics, of course,
may do what they want with their money, but this isn't exactly helping the public image of a cartel of child rapists. Case in point, Father Ireneusz Bochynski of Poland recently went on the record saying he knows

Republicans are trying to drastically alter how science is conducted in this country. Rather than allow scientists free-reign to answer the ultimate questions of the universe, they want scientists to only work
on projects that can be shown to directly help the country. The problem with this approach, of
course, is that scientific discoveries rarely have any obvious positive impact. Einstein wasn't looking for a way to make more accurate GPS systems, he just wanted to understand the
strangeness of speed of light. Orsted wasn't trying to make an electric motor,
he was just trying to understand magnets and electricity. The most impressive scientific discoveries that have had the most impact on us have always been about understanding, not trying to make one country better

In Kansas City, Missouri two high school seniors, Matthew Barnett and an unnamed boy, got two younger girls (ages 14 and 13) drunk and raped even as the girl begged them to stop. A third buddy filmed part of
the encounter, and afterward, they dumped one of the girl's on her parent's porch, where she almost froze to death over night. And yet, the men never got punished. The county prosecutor, Robert Rice, who has ties
to grandfather of one of the rapists, state senator Rex Barnett, dropped the case without even consulting the family due to "lack of evidence." Even though the boys admitted to giving the under-aged girls alcohol
and then having sex with them, even though the girls underwear was found in the boy's basement, even though they FILMED IT! In fact, the small town even ganged up on the families of the rape victims, and
prosecutor Rice says the families of the rape victims owe the rapists an apology! Finally, a recent online post by the rapist Matthew Barnett shows that he hasn't learned a single thing from this fiasco, the post
read "If her name begins with A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z, she wants the D." A protest
has been planned for October 22nd to try and bring a wider audience to this crime and not let it go unsettled.

wants to blame the ignorant consumer, but we all succumbs to clever marketing strategies, especially if we're unfamiliar with the product in question. And how many people really understand how vitamins work? This
is why we need a watch-dog group to protect us. However, when the watch-dog is setup and controlled by politicians who have no medical background, it's unlikely that they'll have the authority to actually protect
us properly. Why isn't the FDA controlled by medical researchers? Why do we continue to let MBAs, CEOs, and lawyers control the FDA?

The FBI demanded the encryption key of the email used at Lavabit, the email provider that American hero, Edward Snowden used to leak the NSA's highly-illegal national wire tapping program. The FBI tried to gag
Lavabit from even telling anyone that the FBI was investigating the company. The owner of Lavabit, Ladar Levison, tried to fight the FBI's gag and demand for their encryption key, which, if given, would allow the
FBI complete access, not just to Snowden's emails, but the email of every client of Lavabit! The FBI, of course, doesn't care about the 4th Amendment any more than the NSA, so they had no problem violating the
privacy of innocent American citizens. Without legal recourse, Ladar Levison took a final stand and sent the FBI the encryption key, but in the form of an 11-page print out using unreadable
4 point font. After the US courts ordered a $5,000-a-day fine until he gave
up a digital form of the key, Levison finally relented. This means that the FBI can now read every single email that was ever sent from Lavabit, including all of the emails for which they never procured a warrant.
Levison shut down his business, after the ordeal, not wanting to, "become complicit in crimes against the American people." I hear you, buddy! Why does the FBI and the NSA have the authority to read my emails,

A rather important point to bring up. Ex-pope, Joseph Ratzinger, recently wrote an open letter where he clearly stated that he never tried to shield any child-raping priests from justice during the 24 years he
worked at the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's department which investigated such matters. However, as the Survivors' Network of those Abused by Priests points out, during the 24 years that he worked there,
and even the several years where he acted as head of the organization, not a single child-raping priest was ever brought
to justice! And it wasn't for lack of child-rapists! This was during the Vatican's prime child-raping years, when the most monstrous of all rapists were at large. How can it be that he wasn't able to catch a
single child-rapist in 24 years? The answer, of course, is that many cases of child rape came across his desk, but he simply swept them under the rug. He is a filthy liar who deserves prison.

equipment, it will be a few -months- before they can replace their fax machine.

The President has an "Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge" which asks places of higher education to commit to community service projects for a year. The title is a little sketchy, why not just
call it the "Community Service Campus Challenge"? I don't have faith, yet I still take part in community service projects. Well, as it turns out, despite the name, non-religious people are welcome to take part in
the project, and take part they have! When you look at the younger crowd, one-third of the under 30 crowd declares themselves as unaffiliated to any religion! And even more impressive, the latest planning meeting
will have non-religious people involved.

Republican Governor Rick Snyder's attorneys are arguing that same-sex marriage must remain illegal in the state in order to
encourage population growth, as if the planet is just hurting for more people. Here's an idea, if you want more people
to move to Michigan, stop trying to pass laws that allow the state's religious people special exceptions in discrimination against homosexuals.
Charter schools have over-all been a failure in the US. In general, they pump out less-educated
graduates than their public school counterparts, and they cost parents more money. Even worse, they are not as restrictive when it comes to following the first amendment to the US Constitution, which means
that they often promote specific religious agendas (AKA nonsense). New Zealand also uses charter schools, but they've at least decided that you
can't teach Creationism in them anymore. Well done!

The Gastonguay family, who tried to sail to Kiribati in order to escape the tyranny of the USA because the country doesn't even allow citizens to stone homosexuals anymore? Remember they ended up getting
stranded at sea because none of them knew anything about ocean navigation and needed the US to airlift them back to the states? Well, after declaring the US helicopter a miracle from God, they're
trying for Kiribati again! They also hate that the USA has an
income tax, and in the unlikely event that they reach Kiribati, they'll probably be very upset to learn that the country has a 35% income tax rate, and is
well-versed in climate change politics.
Bill Nye appears on Bill Maher.
Christians often display billboards that people find highly offensive. Some slogans include, "Why do atheists hate America?" "Anti-God is anti-American, anti-American is treason, traitors lead to civil war,"
and, "If God doesn't matter to him, do you?" with a picture of a gunman. Keep in mind, these billboards were approved as "not too offensive" by the billboard companies who posted them. Now, let's look at an
atheist ad that was considered too controversial to display... it reads, "Atheists," and has a web address. That's it! But the transit authorities in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania just couldn't possibly post
such an incendery ad! In fact, rather than ever be
forced put an anti-religious ad on their buses ever, the transit authority made a rule that will ban all further religious and anti-religious ads, ever! Suits me just fine.

Here's the joys of Abrahamic religions. In India, a forty-year-old man has been convicted of raping a six-year-old girl multiple times. Rather than throw his ass in jail, the people are invoking the Abrahamic

about $20,000. Of course, the peace
sign is actually a modern symbol and depicts an overlay of the semaphore signals of N and D, which stand for nuclear disarmament. However,

Victory in Florida. The city of DeLand will have to remove the cross from its seal, thanks to the hard work of
An act of terrorism took place in Coos Bay, Oregon. There was an explosion on a Vietnam memorial, and while it didn't injure anyone, it did damage a cross. Fox News immediately brought on someone to point the
finger at the Freedom From Religion Foundation and said that they are "crazies" who "will stop at nothing to intimidate communities." Bold statements, but of course, untrue. Fox News didn't even bother to do the
tiniest bit of journalism before accusing an innocent group. The FFRF condemns violent acts and points out that it is religious people who make the bombs. Furthermore, someone sent a letter to the city council
members and a local newspaper claiming responsibility for
the explosion. For my own personal take, violence only begets more violence and has no place in civilized society. Whoever made the bomb is a criminal and should be punished.

Florida's Republican attorney general, Pam Bondi, convinced the state's Republican governor, Rick Scott, to postpone the execution of a criminal. Now see, that's what I like to hear. Two good Christian people
realizing that if they are to claim that all life is prescious, then they should work diligently to keep all people from being killed, even if they are hardened criminals. Strange that they only postponed the
execution for a single day though. Stranger still, that it turns out the only reason the execution was postponed was because it was the same day as Pam Bondi's re-election party. Yes, that's right, these "all life
is sacred" dyed-in-th-wool Christians aren't trying to save the man's life, they just don't want his icky execution to
interfere with their party. Could they be any more

Fox News anchors want atheists to leave the country rather than create a lawsuit to remove the phrase "under God" from the pledge. Funny, I was thinking the same thing about her. The funny thing is, none of
them know when the phrase was added to the pledge to begin with (the 1950s), and their argument is, it doesn't matter, it's on our money (which also wasn't added to all money until the 1950s). Then one woman says
that she hates how atheists use their children to make these lawsuits. Hm, a Christian telling people it's wrong to indoctrinate children?

By refusing to integrate with the rest of society, Christians are continuing to marginalize themselves. Ever since the Boy Scouts of America decided to allow homosexual boys into the groups, many Christian
parents have pulled their children out of the scouts, and are working to form a new scouting group. Some scouts may be taking their ball and going home, but the reality is that the vast majority of scouts will
remain. Those few Christians who can't join modern society will outcast themselves and become just as forgotten as they

Pope Douchebag Francis has released his official words on the subject of non-believers, a group that the Vatican has been trying to woo back into the church. According to him, atheists believe in gods (by
definition they cannot), have no moral compass (they're actually less likely to be incarcerated), can't understand love (tell that to a neuroscientist!), destroy families (just ask the Westboro Baptists), and
worship themselves (guilty as charged). Somehow I don't think they're going to win any converts
with this message.
