A couple hundred metalheads with kazoos converged on the state Capitol on Monday morning to defend one of their own by drowning out a small group of Westboro Baptist Church members.

I never really thought about a cross as a war memorial before. If a surviving family wanted a cross, a crescent moon, or a star of David, (or nothing) on the individual grave marker, I was perfectly okay with that.
Now, we have an issue brought up by the American Humanist Association, where a giant cross might indicate religious superiority.

As the West becomes more and more secular, and the discoveries of evolutionary biology and cosmology shrink the boundaries of faith, the claims that science and religion are compatible grow louder. If you’re a believer who doesn’t want to seem anti-science, what can you do? You must argue that your faith – or any faith – is perfectly compatible with science.

Ghanaian preacher Daniel Obinim has been filmed performing a ritual where he moves around a room full of men, grabbing them each by the crotch.
In some cases, he will keep hold of their penises and give them a little shake.
Graciously, he also offers to massage women’s breasts in order to enlarge them too.

On the one hand, Jesus died for our sins and that is a BFD. On the other hand, he died for our sins, which means he knows how much we love to sin, which means he sacrificed himself so we could lie and steal and make crappy jokes he may or may not have laughed at (who could presume to know the Chosen One’s sense of humor?)

Recently, a darling toddler named Magdalena was baptized in a Catholic Church, unfortunately she wasn’t too happy about being dunked in water against her will

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl."
The priest , "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"
"Yes, Father, it is."
"And who was the girl you were with?"
"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."
"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"
"I cannot say."
"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Cathy Piriano?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"
"Please, Father! I cannot tell you."
The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."
Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"
"Four months vacation and five good leads..."
And with that, I leave you with a shitload of fun images.

...maybe don't let the scripture-quoting stuffed animal be your lawyer when fighting for custody of your kid. Just something to consider.
This can apply to believers also. If you're just hoping that by happenstance your little loved one is going to be a genius, the odds are long and the days are short.
Give the little bugger a head start. Here's one short of a dozen ideas to get them to a great thinking stage.

Before the church went viral, it had purpose.
The initial goal of the religion was to prove that creationism should not be taught in public schools.
Read on, and r'amen.

The Order Of Elijah is a deathcore band from Joplin, Missouri, who, up until about a week ago, was a Christian metal band. To the group's credit, though not in the same genre, metal has had fantastic Christian metal groups in the past (Extol comes to mind), so we'll leave the whole "can Jesus metal rule?" debate out of this. I'm sure you're also noticing that I keep referring to the band's belief in God in the past tense… which is accurate.

While restoring an 18th century statue, Spanish historians found what appears to be a makeshift time capsule in an unlikely place - the buttocks of a statue. Two handwritten letters, yellow with age, were inside. They're dated from 1777 and signed by Joaquín Mínguez, a chaplain from the Burgo de Osma cathedral.
An unfortunate design where there is a little boy kneeling and a priest offering a small loaf of bread from under his robe seems a little bit offensive.

Disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker stoked fears of presidential assassination while claiming that the grandchildren of his audience could face eternal damnation unless they call a 1-888 phone number and send him $60 (plus shipping) for a bucket of pancake mix.

Pope Francis is known for his modest taste in transportation, eschewing his "Popemobile" for a small, black Fiat 500. So when Lamborghini handed him a papal gold-and-white Huracan, there was little chance that Vatican City natives would see the pontiff performing doughnut in St. Peter's Square. Instead, he is to auction off the luxury sports car to raise money for charity, specifically to help Christian communities devastated by the Islamic State militant group in Iraq.
