    …because the Chris Dorner death watch was way more interesting. Probably way more relevant, too.

    What’s Bill Maher doing listening to Christmas songs, anyway? Aren’t there any atheist carols he can listen to?

    Here, I’ll write one for you:

    O hatey hate, O how I hate the Christians
    I’m so much smarter than God…O wait, I am God
    But if I’m God I have to hate myself,
    O hatey hatey hate…

    So…who gets to sue Shepard Fairey for jacking their photo this time?

    This is a great article. I was thinking about this lately after seeing one of my acquaintances wear a kaffiyeh. I was disappointed and it made me angry, but maybe she really didn’t mean anything political by it. I am glad to have gotten a better perspective on it through this article.

    What a great story. Thanks for posting it!

    Why is Jim Wallis such a favorite among atheists?

    He lost all credibility with me when I read an article he wrote ripping into Sarah Palin (which interestingly, seems to have been scrubbed from the Web). His language was not that of one Christian speaking of another Christian, it was dark and venomous.

    When the communists took over Romania decades ago, they found pastors who would say what they wanted said from the pulpit, and replaced (disappeared) the ones who were preaching the word of God. Social Justice is bad theology based on coveting your neighbor’s wealth. I don’t trust this man at all.

    Hitchens is something of a mixed bag compared to the other “new atheists,” and I find him somewhat likable. At least he bashes Islam as much as Christianity.

    You’ll notice that in his arguments he always builds an image of a terrible tyrant god, based on a hodgepodge of bad Catholic school imagery and cherry-picked scriptures, and uses biblical standards of “right” and “wrong,” “good” and “bad,” to prove to you that this tyrant god is bad. It’s a bit circular, because he can’t use objective, secular standards of “good” and “bad” in his arguments because no such standards exist. He’s very good at embarrassing his debate opponents with his quick, sarcastic statements that put them off guard, but don’t really prove anything.

    The man is obviously angry that some of the things he wanted to do all his life were considered “sinful,” and he has been railing against his false image of a God angry at his sin his whole life. He lacks correct theological understanding and has never been able to identify with the concepts of forgiveness and salvation.

    Unfortunately, with his time on earth running short, Hitchens’ pride will not allow him to be moved by the outpouring of God’s love that has been shown to him as Christians pray for his healing and salvation. Keep praying, and don’t hate the man. He is a sad soul.

    Seriously funny math. This is almost like saying “84% of Green Party members believe in global warming, but only 35% of everyone else does. And Green Party members are four times as likely as everyone else to support cap and trade programs. Isn’t that peculiar?”

    Duh, Tea Partiers don’t support Obama BY DEFINITION. That’s why they identify with the Tea Party in the first place. AP, quit trying to make out the Tea Party to be a bunch of freaks. It ain’t working.
