http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061103/ap_on_re_us/haggard_sex_allegations_35 Christmas comes early. Possibly Ted Haggard did too – we’ll find out soon enough as this story expands: Evangelist admits meth, massage, no sex History repeats itself. His defense sounds eerily like “I didn’t inhale.” I’m loving reading about this red-state bastard’s increasingly sordid comeuppance. Any story about a hateful right-wing evangelist that includes […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061103/ap_on_re_us/haggard_sex_allegations_15 There’s a lot of truth in the “doth protest too much” argument. Here, a first-class jerk evangelical seems to have been leading a double life as a wanton, closeted sex-and-meth addict. Normally I’d feel some sense of pity for anyone so insecure and unsure of their own proclivities, but not in this case. Haggard […]

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Australia fury at cleric comments

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/asia-pacific/6086374.stm Nicked from Herald, I almost love this illogical argument. It’d be a whole lot funnier if it wasn’t related to an audience eager to believe it: A copy of the cleric’s comments delivered in a sermon to some 500 worshippers in Sydney last month during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan was initially published […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060801/ap_en_ce/gibson_remarks_35 Speaking of crapulence wallowing, the watercoolers at my work are still yabbing about the revelation of Mel Gibson’s paranoid anti-Semitism. My favourite thing to come out of the story (though the term “sugartits” is pretty high on the list too) is the reaction of the cop who pulled him over. Turns out he is […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060729/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iran_foreign_words_2 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered government and cultural bodies to use modified Persian words to replace foreign words that have crept into the language, such as “pizzas” which will now be known as “elastic loaves,” state media reported Saturday. Putting the “total” back into “totalitarianism,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad now wants to control Iran’s language, […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060728/ap_en_ce/people_gibson_6 Mel Gibson was arrested early Friday for suspicion of driving under the influence, a Sheriff’s Department spokesman said. Religious nutcase that he is, he’ll probably defend himself by claiming that he was driving under the influence of God.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060619/wl_nm/religion_anglicans_dc_2 Another example of why religion is pointless and does its damndest to keep people apart. Far from the peace-and-love that it claims to preach, more often than not, it serves only to keep people in their place, and deny anyone their rights of advancement and equal treatment if it doesn’t conform to the ancient […]

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117,17789981-13762,00.html AN Egyptian cleric’s controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars. Why it’s dangerous to follow a decentralised religion, part umpty-billion: Any idiot can create laws. NB: There are another umpty-billion reasons against centralised religions, too. It is claimed that Matthew, Mark, Luke, John […]

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Israel punishes US TV evangelist

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4602186.stm Pat Robertson, putting the “fun” back in “fundamentalist”. Actually, putting the “mentalist” back in there too… What a moron. So what happens when Pat Robertson finally kicks the bucket? Will that be divine retribution too? Or will Pat be “called home by his master”? You can put any kind of spin on Acts of […]
