The Essence of Fundamentalist Christianity: Hatred

From The Political Carnival:

Awww, just listen to all these Very Christian supporters of bigotry cheer their little cherub as he warbles his misguided little heart out. Look, Mom, no gays! Family values, my ass, teaching an innocent child to condemn “homos” to hell. Who could ask for a more loving, do unto others crowd?

Hawking on God: “It’s a fairy story.”


Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking recently explained his belief that there is no God and that humans should therefore seek to live the most valuable lives they can while on Earth.

I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.
