Hotel offers “spiritual menu” of scriptures

Reader Diane L., inspired by yesterday’s post about Penn State’s hotels removing Gideon Bibles from the rooms, sent a photo she snapped in a hotel that takes religious diversity very seriously: Your post about Penn State removing bibles made me remember a “spiritual menu” at a Portland, Oregon hotel – the Hotel deLuxe—and had to share. […]

Jesus snak-pak

At least three readers sent me this, and I guess it’s gone viral. I also can’t vouch that it’s real, but maybe it is.  It looks real, and there’s a reddit thread on it that started yesterday.  But I can’t give it the Professor Ceiling Cat Seal of Authenticity™. Well, a bit of Googling lends support […]

The most interesting d*g in the world

Several readers sent me this, and although it’s a few years old it seems to be going viral right now. At any rate, it appears to be a sign showing four activities prohibited in a park, but unfortunately combined into a single image. What they’ve done, apparently, is to ban only skateboarding d*gs who are having a […]

Purloined Jesus wafer returned to Church after legal threat

I didn’t realize how zealous the Catholic Church was in guarding its crackers. I guess that communion wafers, before they’re blessed, are just crackers, but once they’re blessed all bets are off. (By the way, a judicious bit of Googling reveals that the consecration of the wafers, and their transubstantiation into the body of Jesus, […]

Billboard of the week

From a tw**t by George Takei, whom many of you will recognize as the actor who played Sulu on Star Trek. The billboard is an ad urging males to get medical tests to prevent serious problems later, and refers to ahrq.gov, the website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and […]

A militant atheist

This is the image that faitheists, accommodationists, and believers have when it comes to Our Own Satan. It was produced by Ben Goren, who calls it “Richard Dawkins, Militant Atheist,” who sent it with the note: The opening sentence of that execrable bit of nonsense by Nury Vittachi that you’ve got as the top post right […]

Cat-related prank played on coworker

Now this took some trouble. Look at the keyboard! From CollegeHumor

Orthodox Church patriarch blesses a t.v. studio with a paint roller

This is funny, but also, I think, a good sign. According to the BBC, Patriarch Daniel of Romania’s Orthodox church has used a paint roller dipped in holy oil to bless a new broadcasting studio. The church, however, calls the roller a “sanctification rod”: The ceremony did not go unnoticed by Romania’s press and internet […]

Chopra follows up his Million Dollar Challenge, and a short parody

Deepak Chopra desperately needs treatment for Maru’s Syndrome, for he simply can’t stay out of the box. In the last couple of day’s he’s put up two more videos on Randi’s “The Amazing Meeting” (TAM) and Chopra’s own Million Dollar Challenge, in which—mocking James Randi—Deepakity offers a cool million to anyone who can “explain” the Hard Problem of Consciousness (the […]

Is the devil in Lebanon, Missouri?

Here’s an update on the poll taken by the Lebanon Daily Record on Principal Lower’s graduation prayer.  As you may recall, the paper polled readers about whether Lower’s prayer was appropriate for graduation.   You can see the results by going to the Lowery-loving column by Katie Hilton, “Hats off for Lowery!“, and then clicking back to “home” […]
