All hail @MarkBurnettTV & @RealRomaDowney’s hilarious, white-washed @History channel @bibleseries!

History? No, no. We don’t trouble ourselves with fact or evidence.

Here’s a recap of the first episode.

Yes, yes. I’m white. Never mind my Semitic ethnicity.

I wrote about this when I first heard about it (and boy have the whiny, self-righteous, dishonest Christians come out of the woodwork since then!). The first episode has since premiered and, much to my dismay but complete lack of surprise, the ratings have been excellent. This of course means that more religious horseshit will most likely start pouring out of Hollywood. I actually have no real problem with that; H’wood’s a business and so will do what it thinks will make money, but I do have a number of problems with the series itself.

But rather than gripe for too long about that, I’ll let a couple others jump in here first.

The Church of @Scientology bends me over a slimy trash can and makes sweet, nasty love to my #cochlea!

First, I saw this (now removed due to a copyright claim by the Church of Scientology.  It had the words “One. God. Further. Atheism” at the end), courtesy of folks like Cult of Dusty:

Someone had declared to me, “Yay! An atheist super bowl ad!” I was immediately skeptical. Of course I was. Even if American Atheists, Atheist Alliance International, and every other atheist organization pooled their resources, I doubt they’d scrape together enough cash not only to produce such a high-end ad, but also pay for the air time during the super bowl.

Then I saw this, courtesy of the e-meter-ers:

Imagine my crushing disappointment. Sure, I’d been skeptical, but I’d also been hopeful. Yay! An atheist super bowl ad! What better way to let people know it’s okay to be atheist and out about it than during arguably one of the more “American” of events?

Then a friend commented on the “atheist” ad on Facebook. Words of encouragement. I corrected him on the origin of the ad. He basically said that hey, if it’s a great message and a great ad, he didn’t mind co-opting it.

That struck me. Does a message maintain its meaning if it’s co-opted by one group to essentially express the opposite of what it was intended to express by the originating group? I’m not sure. For now, I’m siding with my friend.

@ChickfilA Has Got-To-St-A or @keishacory Is Full of Shit or Monkeys Handle PR for the @hensoncompany

Before I get to my thoughts (including why I’m picking on poor Keisha Cory), I’ll let Dusty Smith have the first word.

PART I: I DON’T GIVE A FUCK

I’m one of the lucky ones. Before about a year ago, I’d never heard of Chick-Fil-A. I’ve never had to go through this personal crisis of such-good-chicken/such-crap-morals. I was walking around in Hollywood, happened upon a construction site, happened to see the announcement sign of the forthcoming Chick-Fil-A restaurant, looked them up out of curiosity, and decided not to give them my money. That was it. That was all.

Then a few weeks ago, everyone discovered how to use the internet and learned how to read. What vast, arcane knowledge did the intertubes spew forth? Exactly what I’d learned a year ago. Chick-Fil-A has never hidden their beliefs. They’ve stuck them in plain site. It’s not like they up and decided to be homophobic assholes last year.

And that’s what they are. Homophobic assholes who cherry-pick the Bible for what they want, versus what they don’t. Cherry-picking Southern Baptists? I know. Stop the presses. Continue reading

Hats off to #CultofDusty, #PatCondell, and #VoiceofTruth2006 for great videos!

A friend recommended these to me and I’m embarrassed to say that I wasn’t aware of them before.

In “Have You Heard the Good News?”, Dusty succinctly and eloquently summarizes my issues with Christianity.

In “Your Faith Is a Joke”, Pat does a great job of explaining the fact that no one, least of all any religious, has earned the right not to be offended. I wish I’d known about this video when I got the e-mail message quoted in this.

In “A Rational Look at the Flood Myth”, VoiceofTruth2006 lays out specific evidence that the Flood could never have happened.
