Klingenschmitt Says 'Demonic Judges ... Are Imposing The Devil's Law Upon The People'

In this video, Gordon Klingenschmitt laughably praises a North Carolina magistrate who resigned rather than perform same-sex marriages and bow to government tyranny.

If You Know A Dead Person, Pat Robertson Has GREAT News

"Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson insisted that he and others have the power to raise the dead, but lamented that people these days are withholding this special skill.

Robertson, who has previously discussed dead-raising abilities, told a viewer, Margaret, that people can raise the dead when they receive and submit to the power of the Holy Spirit.

“That power is there, we just aren’t using it,” Robertson grieved.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

City Stealing From Citizens By Tampering With Traffic Lights

“Confronted with questions about a flurry of red light camera tickets stamped with yellow times below the 3-second minimum, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration said the fluctuation of hundredths of a second was normal — imperceptible to anyone behind the wheel of a car.

It turns out that fraction of a second makes a big difference to drivers and to the city's coffers.



The Emanuel administration on Friday acknowledged that it had changed the rules on what qualifies for a $100 ticket, quietly directing its new red light camera vendor to tag drivers even when the duration of a yellow light slips just below the 3-second standard set by the city.

The policy generated 77,000 more tickets and nearly $8 million in revenue for the city over the last six months.” *

Atheist Debates - Appeals to Faith

A brief look at appeals to faith and why they don't and can't add anything of substance to conversations about the foundations of a belief.

There's an additional context that isn't discussed in this video, primarily because it appeals to a specific interpretation of faith as 'confidence that is granted by God'... that sort of justification will be addressed in future videos about direct revelation and the 'divine sense'.

Mothers Protest To Ban Breaking Bad Action Figures

"No half-measures, even in the toy game. Toys "R" Us is removing a controversial line of Breaking Bad action figures featuring drug kingpin Walter "Heisenberg" White and sidekick-nemesis Jesse Pinkman armed with bags of cash and meth. This follows a heavily publicized protest led by a Florida mother, who earned over 9,000 signatures with her Change.org petition.



"Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical,'" Toys "R" Us spokeswoman Kathleen Waugh cleverly told NBC News, referencing a classic line from the acclaimed AMC drama. But this marks a drastic turn from the company's previous stance: On Monday, the retailer noted in a statement that "the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up" and were stocked in "adult action figure" sections of their stores.” *

Sarah Palin’s PAC Is A Massive Million Dollar Scam

“Sarah Palin’s reluctance to put her money where her mouth is has left some 2014 candidates she endorsed floundering in the polls with many unable to make it past the primaries.



According to OpenSecrets.org, SarahPAC, the political action committee controlled by Sarah Palin, has dispensed only $45,000 to fellow Republicans running in the midterms, less than 3 percent of the $1.4 million available as of Sept. 30, the end of the reporting quarter.

With elections three weeks away, Palin seems inclined to hang onto her cash, possibly with an eye on 2016, where she may use the money to increase her profile going into a presidential election."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Ghost Stories 2014

It's an annual tradition. Each October, in advance of Halloween, we gather around the virtual campfire to share our favorite ghost stories. (Yes, atheists often love tales of the supernatural, as we enjoy all manner of fiction and storytelling.) So dim the lights, place a candle in the jack-o-lantern, and join us for some spooky tales of things that go bump in the night.
