I've been an 'out' atheist since I realised I was an atheist. I never felt the need to cover up my convictions. Whenever people assume that I am a christian I will tell them straight up that I am an atheist and leave it at that. I generally entertain statements like 'but you have to believe in somet...

If you're wondering why I bothered with the last quote, its because this man has no proof at all for what he said there. He is making it up, even if he utterly and sincerely believes it. Note that this is not the fringe nutters. This is the top brass in the Catholic Church. I must add that attempti...

What bothers me even more about this issue is that the Church officials are talking about demons and monsters and succubi as if these were real. In the 21st century, for heaven's sake! Exorcism is primitive man's first clumsy and inept attempt at psychology. It has no place in modern society. The C...

They can pick and choose their literal interpretations of scripture whilst believing that other passages are fables. I recently read an article in a Catholic magazine, written by a priest, in which he gives thanks to God for getting evolution in motion. At this rate they will eventually whittle awa...

I find the Catholic Church to be moving towards a more scientific direction due to the increasing lack of belief in God and greater discoveries by science.... It's a good thing perhaps, as it means that Catholics are more inclined to be in favour of science rather than mythical BS like Creation. An...

Maybe the charity are worried about offending and alienating donors with the capacity to contribute far more than a meager five grand. If that is the case then yes, they are right to refuse Claire Tully's offer. They may have to cater to the religious sensibilities of their contributors whether they...
