Feigning Compassion To Reinforce One’s Own Agenda

(Read through to the bottom of this one for a real kicker! UPDATE (1:31 PM): And Another!) In most of my writing, I don’t differentiate between “Christian privilege” and “religious privilege.” In our nation, they are basically the same because Christianity is so prevalent. Christians extremists understand that defending religious privilege on behalf of other […]

How to Patronize the President in the Name of Religious Privilege

Here’s another warped “Perspective” from One News Now entitled, “A plea to the president to attend church.” I’ve broken the piece down to some handy tips for trying to get the President to do more to reinforce the privilege you and your fellow Christians deserve. I hope it’s helpful. Step 1 – Pander, Pander, Pander! […]

I haven’t done one of these in a while! (They’re a lot of work!)

It’s the Farce File special back-to-school edition! 9/12/09 – Christian attorneys defend […]

Truth For Youth? More Like Beans For Teens

I invite this upon myself by subscribing to OneNewsNow and WorldNetDaily, but sometimes I see something that just angers me so much that I actually almost give in and see it for myself. Truly, abstinence is the best policy when it comes to known bullshit. But this one would definitely be a sight to see, […]

Christians Ignoring Science: That’s the Joke!

Literally moments after I finished publishing my entry on the APA report, I found a link to a OneNewsNow article with the following title: APA ‘ignoring the science’ on homosexual reparative therapy And the expert is a Christian attorney. Apparently he knows more about psychological research than the APA. Impart your wise words, Mat Staver: […]

Friday Fundamentalist Farce File #7

So I’ve decided to continue my Farce File feature.  Yes, fundamentalist news sites like One News Now are easy targets of critique, but they still need to be sites of critique.  In a society where such rhetoric dominates the culture, somebody needs to be taking the time to stand up and say, “No, you’re wrong.  […]

It’s back! You know you missed it. Here’s this week’s wrap-up of the charming propaganda provided by OneNewsNow. 3/13/09 – Steele disappoints conservatives on abortion, homosexuality This was too good to ignore.  I’m pretty sure everybody saw this… Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is under fire from social conservatives for telling GQ magazine that […]

They Love Me, They Love Me Not

So…. remember how I involuntarily started receiving emails from OneNewsNow? Well, I now involuntarily stopped receiving emails from them.  Maybe I was only signed up for a test run?  I don’t know.  I never authorized it the first time around, so… who knows what happened? Oh well, I resubscribed today. When this week’s Farce File […]

Friday Fundamentalist Farce File #3

(NOTE: Because I spent all day Friday at the Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity, including guest keynote Michele Norris from NPR’s All Things Considered, I did not have the opportunity to complete this week’s Farce File.  What is posted here is what I had completed prior to Friday, and I wanted to get […]

Friday Fundamentalist Farce File #2

What the FFFF?  Here are the week’s highlights from the OneNewsNow newsletter. 2/21/2009 – Proposal would lift Arkansas restrictions on atheists How about them apples?  This short news clip is pretty accurate and fair.  There’s nothing to debunk about it.  I never thought I’d be grateful to the Becket Fund’s support (still not sure that […]
