Please Support the Work I Do Through This Site

Over the past couple of years, what began as a personal blog has turned into a hub with several contributors and multiple posts per day. As always, I'd like to continue expanding the reach of this site. That entails bringing on additional contributors with different voices, including more guest posts from people who can offer interesting and different perspectives, creating more YouTube videos, and making the podcasts sound more professional.In order to facilitate all of this, I've created a page at Patreon. (You can now see on that page a list of things I've been able to do thanks to your contributions.)

Swiss Bishop Cites Leviticus During International Appearance, Leading to Rapper’s Response

Support for LGBT equality is imminent in many countries, and right-wing religious conservatives are not happy that their perspectives are dying out. For some, this means blaring their vitriol louder and louder to make sure they're heard. Vitus Huonder (below), the Bishop of Chur in Switzerland, is one of them.
In a debate on marriage and family held by the German Catholic Forum last week, Huonder didn't stop at the phrases "traditional marriage" or "family values," the way some conservatives do. He went all the way and cited Leviticus 20:13, the infamous verse suggesting that men "engaging in homosexual acts" be put to death.

Non-Religious People Abound in Large U.S. Cities

Earlier this year, the Public Religion Research Institute informed us of the least religious cities in the country. They just published the religious breakdowns of the biggest cities in America. And surprise! They're full of heathens:

Idaho Hunter Sabrina Corgatelli Uses Bible Verses to Defend Killing of Innocent Animals

I'm vegetarian. It's not something I spend much time defending or arguing about, but there you go. I also get why people eat meat, with reasons ranging from all the supposed health benefits to "But it's delicious." They're not convincing enough for me, but I understand them.Hunting animals for sport, though? I don't get that at all.You're not catching a meal. You don't need to do it for survival. You're just killing for the sake of killing. How twisted does your mind have to be to find that fun?While much of the recent media attention has been on Dr. Walter Palmer (who paid money to kill Cecil the Lion), it's rapidly shifting to Sabrina Corgatelli, an Idaho hunter who gleefully took to social media to show off her latest kills, including a giraffe:

BBC Announces Development of Show About “Atheist Preacher”

The BBC has really upped the ante over the past decade in terms of quality television. From Doctor Who to Sherlock and beyond, its appeal has grown substantially with a renewed dedication to storytelling and an increased investment in production value. So when they announce a new lineup of shows, people tend to pay attention. Perhaps especially so when one of their new series will focus on atheist leadership.
