The American Atheists organization has trotted out its anti-Christmas — actually anti-God — billboards again: “Go Ahead and Skip Church! Just be Good for Goodness’ Sake.

Bernie Sanders

A meme is going around showing a young man being pushed aside by an armed police officer. Here’s what’s written over the image: Arrested for fighting for civil rights for African Americans.

Dr. Ben Carson got eviscerated by the media because he claimed that people who engage in homosexuality do so by choice. Dr. Carson’s analogy about prisons was not the best example to use to make his case, but the choice factor is a given. And even if choice is not a factor, just because a …

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Dr. Ben Carson the following question: “You’re a famed neurosurgeon, the best — some say — the best pediatric neurosurgeon living in the world today. You’re a man of deep faith. Explain how science and religion, in your mind, co-exist.” Chuck Todd should be asking how atheists can do science without …

Breaking bad Evolution

The media continue to pounce on Gov. Scott Walker for not dealing with an out-of-context question about evolution at the end of an hour-long appearance at the prestigious Chatham House think tank in London where he was on a trade mission.
