The Catholic sex scandal continues and the Vatican has continued to blame everyone except themselves. Most Catholics in America don’t even agree with the Pope on a growing list of important issues and yet they continue to go to church and donate money which gets funneled back to the Vatican to fight for and against issues they don’t agree with and to protect pedophile priests from getting prosecuted.

A statement issued by the Paulus Institute, the organization sponsoring the forthcoming Pontifical High Mass at the National Cathedral on April 24th, announced that Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos will no longer be leading the ceremony.…
If you're unfamiliar with Anjem (Andy) Choudary, then check out my prior blog post before reading this one. Anjem is every Muslim apologist's nightmare . . . a real piece of work. I first learned of him a day or two ago when Ayaan Hirsi Ali introduced me to him, via FaceBook. Suddenly, I'm running across him everywhere.
I haven't watched any Pat Condell videos for awhile, so I went to YouTube… Continue
Yesterday was the much anticipated conclusion to South Park’s 200th episode which has been causing a great deal of controversy. While the episode didn’t depict the Islamic prophet Mohammad and did what seemed like a major cop-out in revealing that the bear-suited depiction of Mohammad was actually Santa Claus, this episode contained a coded warning to the Muslim world. …
It is pretty well known that Muslim fundamentalists freak out when anyone criticizes their religion or even depicts an image of their prophet Mohammad. In fact, Muslims are even known to get violent about it. Their severe reactions to such trivial things have frightened the media and the entertainment industry.
The "clash of civilzations" is often denied by Islamic apologists. It is, in fact, for real.
Here's the FaceBook intro from Ayaan Hirsi Ali:
Hat tip to my friend Sam Harris for posting this video - "British Islamist Anjem Choudary: Freedom and Democracy Are Idols That Must Be Destroyed and Replaced with Obedience to Allah." In my upcoming book Nomad - release date May 18th in the U.S. - I discuss how the power of Dawa – in English, that is the… Continue
Very often these days fundamentalists get a very hard time because of their extremist views and are practically demonised by moderates across the political spectrum as well as each other. But very few of these chastisers have actually even tried to look at the fundamentalist point of view and find any positives in it. What we never hear about fundamentalism are the tremendous advantages to it. So I want to outline these.…
I feel like talking about the sacrament of confession and a priest's role.
I can wrap my head around stating the sin, the penance and the healing. But what I cannot understand is the 'seal of confession', the law that states a Catholic priest cannot disclose what is said about any confession, unless they have the confessors permission.
Fictional situation: A Catholic someone, gives confession and admits to the killing of an abortion doctor. The media is searching high and… Continue
Claiming the U.S. is a Christian nation because the founders were Christian and it was founded on Christian values is like saying it's a white nation because the founders were white and it was founded on white values. The latter of the two statements is insulting to every citizen of another race and the first is insulting to everyone of another religion. It gives the impression that they are second class citizens.
Sunday, a fundamentalist Muslim website called, RevolutionMuslim.com “warned” the creators of South Park that they may have already stepped over the line and that if they continue, they risk violent retribution.
There is a terrible double standard going on in the world today. Could you imagine how society at large would respond if the headlines of the morning newspapers reported that the largest atheist group in the world had allowed members of their group to molest children? What if the atheist group used member donations to help those who had molested children to move to other areas of the country or even other countries entirely in order to avoid prosecution? …
