    Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee posted a lengthy political rant on Tuesday, and he appeared to say ‘McPence’ is in the closet, though it may have been just part of his insult. Tommy Lee revealed an awful paycheck from Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’ yesterday. “You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH [White House] again because we are going to pay you back so f**king hard for all of this shit. Planned Parenthoods on every damn corner. We’re going to re-paint Air Force One, pussy hat pink and fly it over your beloved Bible Belt six...
  • Something Worse Than the IRS Awaits Greedy Televangelists

    The fourth circle of Hell, as envisioned by Dante Alighieri in The Divine Comedy, is reserved for the avaricious and the profligate. It is where those whose lust for getting and spending knew no bounds in life are punished in the afterlife by being battered endlessly with heavy weights. Notable among the souls damned for their greed, Dante wrote, "were clergymen and popes and cardinals, within whom avarice works its excess." What disgusted the great poet in 14th-century Florence – money-grubbing hucksters masquerading as men of God – is just as disgusting in 21st-century America. Comedian John Oliver is no...

    A little comments food-fight starter for a slow Friday news cycle. Even your friendly neighborhood atheist blogger is surprised by this result: My memory of youthful Christian lessons is rusty but I do vaguely recall something about rich men and heaven and camels and the eye of a needle. Then again, there’s a difference between praying for a Lamborghini and praying for a pay raise to help make ends meet. Wanting more wealth doesn’t necessarily make you greedy.The question: Why are born-again Christians more likely than those who don’t describe themselves as born again to tie wealth to faith?...

    The city is poised to sell the former Compaq Center to Lakewood Church for $7.5 million, one of a string of real estate sales city officials hope to realize to help close a lingering budget shortfall. City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposed sale Wednesday, which would end a 30-year lease signed in 2001 by the megachurch's leader and television paster Joel Osteen. Lakewood... made a lump sum $11.8 million pre-payment for the lease to use the 606,000-square-foot building — former home to the Houston Rockets — which sits on seven acres in Greenway Plaza area along the...

    I have been watching preachers on the Larry King show this week. The current preacher refuses to call sin sin. Larry King asked the current guest if homosexuals and those who have abortions sinners. "I don't know. I just don't go there." Incredible. A previous well-known guest a few days ago refused to call Islan evil. My Bible says, "For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which...
