Canadians: You Have Until October 20th To Sign This Petition Against Blasphemy Laws

I am ashamed of the fact that Canada still has blasphemy laws on the books. While this law has essentially been rendered useless by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, according to the books, blasphemy is against the law and punishable by up to two years in prison.

Celebrate Canada Day By Ending Canadian Blasphemy Laws

Canada's Blasphemy Laws

Happy Canada Day Eve, you hellbound Canucks! Did you know that Canada still has blasphemy laws on the books? Indeed, we do.

Raif Badawi

In recent weeks, I feel like I’ve been in a permanent swirly, ice cold toilet bowl water twisting and churning around my head.

I have been struggling for so long to find a t-shirt company that offered ease-of-use, low base prices and high quality products and I have finally found one.

3 Reasons Why #NormalizeAtheism Is A Good Thing

Normalize Atheism

On Twitter, recently, a new hashtag has been making the rounds. #NormalizeAtheism is the brain baby of atheist activist Mark Nebo, who is otherwise known for his founding of Be Secular and co-hosting the Ra-Men podcast. The goal of the hashtag is, as it sounds, to build awareness for atheism, make evident our numbers and encourage

Update 3: After having been sent many photos from MB, I am 99.9% sure this story is true. He wanted me to mention that the Facebook status his father posted is “the key to enter Islam. Whoever professes it, is now a Muslim”. MB is no longer drugged and has been moved to a private
