Follow Up on Louis CK/”Faggot” and Many Court Decisions

Hey everybody. It’s 8:33 PM EST as I start this post and it’s turning out to be a most exciting evening. Already we had two rulings out of Massachusetts that DOMA is unconstitutional. I’m going to be reviewing those two decisions and getting posts up later tonight and tomorrow for each. We also just got […]

Who Says Teabaggers Aren’t Racist? Here’s One!

Zack Ford, you are a Marxist piece of shit! You really can go “F” yourself! BTW, there is a growing concensus that “The only good Marxist, is a dead one!”  Got to say, I can’t find much of a problem with that saying! You need to keep playing with the unarmed minds of our young […]

Life Happens

Hey readers! I’m doing some traveling this week (and having some delays—wah wah) so posting will be limited. Despite the delays I plan to do the best to cover the Prop 8 closing arguments! I just don’t want you all to think I’d abandoned you. Take care! Here’s a funny picture of me to hold […]

How Not To Evangelize To An Atheist (Starring Shelonda)

I thought today I’d outline some rules for etiquette when it comes to evangelizing religion to a gay atheist, like myself. Rule #1: Don’t evangelize. Ever, really. But if you know what’s good for you, you definitely don’t want to try evangelizing to someone because of their identity. It’s like touching the top of the […]

Zack Responds To Negative Feedback

I assumed when I started my blog 16 months ago that I was inviting torrents of hateful, angry email. Really, I haven’t gotten much. I don’t have a huge readership, so that makes some sense. People do disagree with certain posts here and there, which is great—I love critical feedback and the opportunity to grow […]

Do I Have a Successful Blog?

Do I have a successful blog? I try to do both, but like the smartass in today’s xkcd, I spend more time thinking about content. I want readers who come to the site because they are interested in the content, and hopefully want to interact with it. How am I doing, dutiful reader(s)?

The Cycle of Uncritical Thinking in the United States

I found this amazing comic on CampusProgress yesterday, and I just want to say a word before I share it. This “circle of stupidity,” as the comic is called, is exactly why I write this blog. It is exactly why I unabashedly challenge religion at every opportunity. Critical thinking is sorely lacking in our society […]
