Ronald’s way to play

Posted by Paulo on January 27, 2013


I took this picture a while back while travelling to the coast in North Carolina on vacation. Not sure why, but something about it makes me laugh, as if Ronald McDonald and the huge church cross in the background, the kind that you see scattered all over the American South almost as much as the golden arches, somehow fit together. He’s got his little rules written out for how to play in his playground, and standing under the cross he’s looking like a Moses figure or something… anyway, I thought maybe some of you might see the humor in it. Enjoy!

Intelligent Design is Stupid: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Posted by Paulo on August 14, 2012

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist, so he knows what he’s talking about. Just watch the video, it’s pretty funny too. I love this guy…

Okay, maybe not like this one. The other one with the loaves and fishes for every single person in the world.

Angel raping

Posted by Ann on June 27, 2011

If you rape angels God will destroy America. So don’t rape angels.

..and then I think he said something completely insane about Sodom and gay marriage, but I didn’t really hear it because I was thinking about angel raping and what that would entail, like how does one hold an angel down what with their wings, flight ability, special powers and all.

Christianity is a delusion (as is all religion)

Posted by Ann on March 7, 2011

This video makes me laugh. It seems so clearly obvious. And the tone of the narrator is spot on (and so polite, sorta). The video outlines why what you believe, if you believe in religion or god, is a delusion. If only it was as easy as emailing this out to all of my faithful family and friends who are living under the delusion of Christian normalcy.  Sometimes it feels as though I should be able to take people by the shoulders, look them in the eyes point blank, and shake them out of the spell woven by their own minds.  Or maybe pry their eyes open and make them watch this video a dozen times (I kid, of course). A deprogramming video from WhyWontGodHealAmputees.com (with credit to Loftus for pointing me there):

“Thinking is the solution. If you will turn on your brain, the depth of your delusion will become obvious to you, and you will be able to start down the path to recovery.”

Peace on Earth

Posted by Ann on December 25, 2010

What if people started living their own lives instead of focusing on everyone else except themselves?  Everyone is pissed about something–usually other people. And usually the people they advocate for are the people they most hate (like Christians’ love/hate for the sinful heathens or humanists for the haters). I’m mainly pissed that people are all pissed about something. And how they act all nice and humanisty-like and then talk shit behind people’s backs.  I don’t have time for that, what a waste. Make some jokes about it or something, but don’t go around hating. Oh, and I’m really pissed at all the injustices done by people who are pissed and harboring resentments. Live your life, forget about the rest (who cares if that bastard or asshole hurt you last year–fuck ’em! being pissed doesn’t change anything whatsoever), deal with things as they come up. Lots of nice pissed people out there I’m sure, and lots I don’t like but for whom I have no time to waste thinking or being pissed about–I’m too busy doing me to worry about them. Unless I love you, of course, then I’m allowed to get pissed at you because you can take advantage. The rest of yous, I’m done being pissed with you today. Take a chill pill kids.

Come on theists. Admit it. You are gay for us!

Posted by Ann on December 10, 2010

If you are a theist visiting the FFF blog on a regular basis, you are only a step away from becoming one of us. Yes, we have an agenda. You know you want a taste of our “lifestyle”…

For real though. If you are following our blog, and you are a theist, you may want to consider what interests you so much here. I don’t troll Christian sites. Neither do I troll gay sites. I’m not confused about who I am. If I did visit Christian or gay sites regularly, I would consider my motivations.  I’m not in danger of becoming gay or of becoming Christian.  I can admire the naked female form if presented to me, as I can admire a good Christian, but neither works for the honest me. Never will. I think it’s about coming to know yourself, when you think you already know yourself, then accepting yourself.

So why are you here if you are a theist exactly?

May I add you are always welcome of course. Feel free to browse.

Bo Burnham’s Rant

Posted by dsc01 on November 27, 2010

This is a comedy video that probably qualifies for inclusion in the irreligious songs series, but I don’t think it should be so classified, and since I’m posting it, I’m not gonna put it in the series. So there. 😛

All the seats at the Sunday masses,
Filled with the mass’s massive asses,
Classes pass as fast as molasses.
Ceremonial reading glasses.
Read a little bit of Leviticus.
All the kids are a little too little for this.
All the parents nod in agreement —
“I think I can vaguely see what he meant.”
It’s too early in the morning glory
To read another allegory story,
The father reads a little bit farther,
Assuring the assured that they need not bother
“when god, in verse 45, said the slaves are okay to buy,
He meant that people, all from the start
Each have slaves within their hearts.
Things, that we have sold or boughten, that are forced to pick our moral cotton
God calls us to set these free, free our hearts from slavery…
And then as god goes on to explain the logistics of buying and selling slaves…”

In the back, I sit and I nod to the beats that are bumpin from my iPod
My god, they’re starting to pray
And over the music I can hear them say,
“Dear god, dear lord, dear vague muscular man with a beard or a sword.
Dear good all-seeing being, my way or the highway Yahweh.
The blue-balled anti-masturbator, the great, all-loving faggot hater,
I’d like to thank your Holy Might for making me both rich and white
And though this is your day of rest, I come to you with one request
There’s so much pain beyond this steeple,
Wars and drugs and homeless people.
Sadness, where there should be joy, hate and rape and Soulja Boy.
A world in darkness needs your light, so I’m sure your schedule’s pretty tight
But my dog just had leg surgery if you could fix that first…

Jesus…

Debra Messing’s fingers in a holy place, “Hail Mary full of grace.”

Obama, could you pass some hope to the pope
I know a couple dudes who wanna elope
See the pope said, “nope” so the bros can’t cope.
(The bros can grope but the bros can’t cope.)
They’ve been in love, they’ve been addicted
Who said they shouldn’t? Benedict did.
Cause in the holy land of the lord he’s the holy landlord and dicks are evicted.
Cause you can be a benedict if you’ve been a dick under Benedict but
You can’t have benedicts because there’s only one pope and only one dick
What? a dick on a pope is
Just like a soap on a rope cause it’s
Pointless, unless in prison, throw up your bibles, Christ has risen.
Hallelujah, now it’s raining men,
Because the gender ratio is 1 to 10.
Winos at the eucharist station, trans-gendered-substantiation
Jesus wasn’t the messiah, get back I’m a heretic and I’m on fire
It was Oedipus, and those holy nights
The holy motherfucking Christ.
I’m a blasphemah post-Katrina cruising the marina. on a crusade to cruise AIDS
And blast FEMA
You’re too late, we’re fucked we don’t need ya.

In the name of the father, son and holy ghost
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Turn up your nose, strike that pose.
HEY MACARENA!
