Pat Robertson Thinks Gay People Will Go Extinct Because They Can’t Reproduce

Full Of Jesus Or Gas?

On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson received a phone call from a viewer asking him to weigh in on her church’s policy of forbidding members from dating or marrying anybody, which has made said members very frustrated because they are all getting older and would prefer not to die alone.

Is she a Shaker? Is it some kind of cult? We don’t know! And the reason we do not know is because instead of making sure that this woman is not in some bizarre cult, Pat Robertson decided to relate this to the gays, and how they and this church will go extinct from not reproducing. As one does, when one is Pat Robertson. Keep reading »

Bill Nye Explains Evolution With Emojis

Dancing Twins = Reproduction? I Guess I Can Roll With It

Bill Nye has been on an evolution-education kick lately. First, last week, he went on Newsmax’s “MidPoint” to talk about his vehement opposition to creationism being taught in public schools, or at all, to young children. When asked if creationism is making kids less intelligent, he responded:

“Absolutely. They’re holding the kids back. These kids will not be able to participate in the future. Because they will not have this fundamental idea that you can use skeptical thought to learn about nature. They will have to suppress everything they see in nature in order to try and get a worldview that’s compatible with the adults, in whom they trust.”

Faith In Humanity In A Revolutionary Age

Faith in humanity is the only faith I have. As in, I don’t have faith in a god or anything particularly spiritual. I’m not going to waffle over that and say that there’s a possibility that a god, in fact, does exist, or that I could be wrong. I am certain that I’m not wrong. I will, however, say that it takes the same kind of faith for me to say that I know I’m not wrong that it takes for other people to say that they know for sure that a god does exist. Inasmuch as that’s the case, I acknowledge the possibility that other people’s gods exist for them as purely, simply, and undeniably as there is no god for me. Keep reading »

HBO Is Turning Lawrence Wright's Epic Scientology Exposé Into A Documentary And I Am Here For It

Welp, I think it’s safe to say that executives at HBO have been added to the Church of Scientology’s lengthy suppressive persons list, as the cable network is poised to turn Going Clear into a documentary. Due out in 2015, the documentary will be directed by Alex Gibney and be based on Lawrence Wright’s impeccably researched book about the cult (yeah, I’m just calling it a cult from now on, because I’m done playing nice) and its ties to Hollywood. But given CoS’s well-known litigiousness, HBO isn’t taking any chances and has apparently hired a whopping 160 lawyers in anticipation of a lawsuit. Hey, as far as I’m concerned, if CoS is mad at you, you must be doing something right. Bring on the epic entheta! I wonder if “Elaine” will be seeing it? [Defamer]

The Problem With Refinery 29′s Profile Of A Church Of Scientology Member

The Problem With Refinery 29's Profile Of A Church Of Scientology Member

The lifestyle website Refinery 29 is in a bit of hot water after writer Kelsey Miller published a profile of a young, female Scientologist called “Elaine” (not her real name) that, frankly, could have been ripped from the pages of Freedom magazine. (Freedom is the Church of Scientology’s propaganda magazine.) Former Scientologists — including a number of ex members who have been excommunicated from the Church — descended upon the post’s comments section accusing Miller of essentially penning an endorsement for the controversial faith, while others implied that Miller might be a Scientologist herself. Miller defended herself in the comments, writing, “I’d only heard the story from an outsider’s perspective, and I was curious about what an average, active member might have to say. The piece was meant to present — not endorse — her opinions and experience to the reader.” While I believe Miller’s intentions were good (and I don’t believe she’s a member herself), I’d like to join those ex members in calling bullshit on her methods. Her “profile” of “Elaine” reads very much like straight up propaganda, not journalism. Keep reading »

This Vagina-Scent Holy Water Madonna Sculpture Exists Pretty Transparently For The Sake Of Press

And I So Wanted To Like It

File this one under “ Extremely Mixed Feelings”: Olfactory artist Peter de Cupere has a one-day exhibit happening in which a Madonna figure made of holy water and “vaginal smell” will melt and fill the gallery with “the scent of passion.” :-/

The vaginal smell is authentic and sourced from a variety of women, but is hygienic – it was created by an olfactory lab, so no, say, hazardous elements remain in the sculpture. Gallery attendees will be invited to touch the liquid after the sculpture has melted but have been warned that it’s a pretty strong scent and will stick. Keep reading »
