Fastest Way to Shut Christians Up

At least with regards to the existence of Jesus, I always point out that we simply have no objective evidence whatsoever that Jesus ever actually lived.  We have no forensic evidence, we have no contemporary eyewitness accounts, everything we have is myth and hearsay.  Christians don’t like that. Often, they will claim that if we […]

Can’t Change The Crazy

I don’t know why I bother sometimes.  I was having a recent discussion about religion and someone popped in and said that it was a complete waste of time to complain about the failures of religion because the religious will just be more motivated to cling to their beliefs anyhow. What’s the point, other than […]

Irrational Rationalizations

Once again, the absurdity of irrational rationalizations strikes, in a ridiculously common way. Now that Mother Teresa has been granted sainthood, the crazy religious are out in force, attacking anyone who criticizes the life and beliefs of Mother Teresa.  I wrote about this a very long time ago and got pretty much the same reaction […]

Google+ Apologetics Part 2

To be honest, I often find Google+ to be a waste of time because there aren’t very many good discussions. Occasionally though, something worthwhile pops up and I have to respond, but as I’ve said before, it isn’t easy to get into much depth and detail because of the format.  Often, when that happens, I […]

Google+ Apologetics Part 1

Every now and then, someone posts a long screed on one of the Google+ Atheism Communities I’m a member of.  Usually, they’re nothing worth paying attention to but this time, I think this list of ten complaints about religious/irreligious debate is something I’d like to respond to.  It was written by someone named Johnathan Peter […]

Will Christian Churches Perform Gay Weddings?

This is an interesting question that has come up recently and one that, depending on your view, you might have a very different take on.  Of course, since the Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage across the United States, religious organizations have vocally condemned it because, according to their religious beliefs, gay marriage is […]

Are Christians Persecuted in America?

This is nothing new, we’ve heard claims from fundamentalist Christians for years that they’re being persecuted, but a new study shows that an increasing number of Christians are adopting this ridiculous view.  According to a Lifeway Research poll, 63% of those polled say that Christians are facing a growing degree of intolerance. Now Lifeway is […]

Hiding Your Beliefs

I’ve noticed a new brand of hate-monger out there who detests homosexuals, but for entirely unstated reasons. They deny being religious, but also refuse to talk about religion at all.  This is a new class of debater who seems to think that if they hide their beliefs, the true source of their hatred of gays […]

The “Moderate” Side of Islam

A lot of people seem to think that Islam isn’t the cause of a lot of the world’s problems today, but I disagree.  Recently, there was a fight on a local radio show between the host and a Muslim caller who insisted that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are “moderate” and don’t support the extremism […]

Making Excuses for Religion

I always find it absurd how many people out there, religious and atheists alike, will go to extreme lengths to make excuses for religion.  Religion is never the cause of anything.  Religion is never to blame.  Most recently, this has had to do with the San Bernardino terrorist mass shooting as I see people jumping […]

CoE Mad About an Ad

Oh look, it’s the latest example of religious entitlement, this time coming out of jolly old England.  The Church of England put together an advertisement that would never get shown on television, but now they are expecting movie theaters to show their ad and when theaters balked, they started crying it was a violation of […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.30

Sometimes It’s Personal Marco Rubio thinks God is more important than the job he wants, Saudi Arabia desecrates corpses, a girl joins ISIS and dies and the Planned Parenthood shooting and Christian hypocrisy. Then we talk about Turkey and Russia and why religion ruins everything.  Now get over there and listen already!

The Religious Whine Game

Here’s another one I’m sick to death of.  When did the religious lose their backbone and decide that whining was the tool to get their way?  People who now sit and pout and complain that doing their jobs somehow contradicts their deeply held religious beliefs, yet they still want to keep getting paid for doing […]

Religious Super-Sensitivity

Wow, I’m finding a lot to bitch about religion lately, which I guess isn’t any real surprise, but there you go.  I just had someone tell me a story about her family, who belong to this super-strict Christian sect that believe that you can never get re-married unless your ex-spouse is dead.  If your husband […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.17

Jewish Cooties! Ultra-Orthodox Jews are afraid of women, gay-hating Jewish stabber returns to stab again, the secrets of the Reconstructionist Right, a three-year old terrorist and political donors come from a small pool.  Plus, Iran isn’t a monster, stop pretending they are.  So what are you still doing here, go listen!

Are Christians Discriminated Against in America?

Following the recent Supreme Court decision on marriage equality, the whining Christians are out in force, crying that they’re being discriminated against because they’re not being allowed to discriminate against people they don’t like and that’s a travesty!  Cry me a fucking river.  I’ll serenade you with the world’s smallest violin.  Fucking crybabies.  But it’s […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.11

What’s Wrong With the South? An unplanned south-centric episode, this week we look at a Texas pastor willing to be burned to oppose gay marriage, Louisiana is allowing Bibles in the classroom to oppose evolution, the Confederate Flag is finally getting the boot and it’s about damn time, plus the Supreme Court rules on Americans […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.10

Jesus Says Give Me Your Wallet! After missing a week, we come back with another 90 minutes of religious and political absurdity sure to make any rational person shake their heads.  This week, gays make Christians feel bad.  The Catholic Church is finally being held criminally liable for pedophile priests.  The Supreme Court rules in […]

More Answers to Christian Responses

Every now and then, I’ll find a list of religious questions for atheists, supposedly aiming to take down the evil heretics, and answer them.  Invariably, they are chock full of irrationality and ignorance and even though the answers are easily available online, theists have no interest in looking them up, or accepting them even if […]

More Bad Reasons to Believe in Jesus

Every now and then I’ll find someone’s top 10 or top 20 list of reasons to take some absurd proposition seriously and discredit them.  Usually I don’t go looking, they just fall in my lap, as this one did, and the reasons are every bit as ridiculous as most of the rest I’ve taken a […]
