Lack of Patriotism

A couple of days ago, I was in the local K-Mart, which is closest big box retailer to my new house and happens to be next door to the grocery store.  Way in the back, they had a bunch of displays for patriotic t-shirts that they were clearly trying to sell off for the 4th […]






Musings on Iran and Hypocrisy

This week, at least this week as I write this, there’s a huge bruhaha going on, especially on the right, about Iran taking custody of 10 U.S. sailors after their ship underwent mechanical problems in Iranian territorial waters.  Of course, Iran immediately said that the sailors were treated well and would be returned promptly, and […]

Most people in the […]






The Bitchspot Report Podcast #69

It’s our 4th of July show and this time around, we find that Catholics don’t give a damn what the Vatican says, a Wisconsin Christian radio host is arrested for molesting a young boy, a Tea Party official acts unethically and shoots himself in the head.  What a fine Christian!  Surprise, surprise, it turns out […]






The Bitchspot Report Podcast #64

In a ridiculously long episode, Cephus and Mike welcome guest Jim Goebel to talk about the cluelessness of creationists, the reason Catholics keep getting into trouble, good news, more Americans are expressing willingness to vote for an atheist and the rise of exorcism among Catholics and others, because they really think black magic, Satanism and […]
