Jumping to unwarranted conclusions

Following a link on Twitter, I saw this post on Pope Hat. I am going to just say that before this I had never read anything on the Pope Hat blog so I have no clue if this is typical. Typical or not, the post in question crosses lines of irresponsible interpretation and generally ableist language. The …

You can’t please these people, even by shutting up

The Day of Silence is this Friday, GASP!, and the religious fundies are up in arms about it. Americans United has a short piece about it here.

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”    1 Corinthians 13:11 Above is one of the few verses I like in a book I despise. I start with an analogy of growth …

When shame is not wrong

Ok deep breath before we get started on this one. Yesterday I read 300+ comments on CFI’s Facebook wall under the discussion of whether Jesus was a hermaphrodite. As of right now it is up to 429 comments and still going strong. Personally I wouldn’t think the topic is interesting enough to warrant such a …
