Atheist students at the London School of Economics were forced to cover up their T-shirts depicting Jesus Christ and Mohammed earlier this month because the images were deemed offensive by the administration.
Chris Moos and Abishek Phadnis, both members of LSE's Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Student Society, wore T-shirts depicting the web comic "Jesus and Mo" during the student union's Freshers' Fair event that introduces new students to the groups that are available on campus.
According to Moos, he and Phadnis were confronted by campus officers and university staff, one of whom "started removing material from their stall," and were ordered to cover or remove their T-shirts – because officials said students had complained the T-shirts were "offensive," – or be "physically removed from the premises" for noncompliance. more >>
According to Cenk Uygur, co-host of the Young Turks and a self-described fervent agnostic, "We have a lunatic on the court." He is speaking of Justice Antonin Scalia who stated in an interview with New York Magazine that he believes in the existence of the devil. In the words of Uygur, that is "cuckoo for cocoa puffs."
Uygur admits that "a lot of Americans believe in the devil," but, he continues, "I hope that it's a symbolic thing they are talking about and not an actual creature with the horn and a tail. I mean that would be ridiculous right?" more >>
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - A Christian apologist presented 10 reasons for the fall of atheism during the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 20th annual Christian Apologetics conference on Saturday, an argument which he is also set to deliver before the Swedish parliament, one of the most atheistic societies in the world.
Gary Habermas, who is the distinguished research professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University, divided his 10 reasons into two groups: those which argue for theology in general as opposed to naturalism, and those which support specifically a Christian worldview.
"Both categories are important. God exists, naturalists are wrong, there is some kind of theism or deism, something to do with God, and then there are things saying Christianity is true," the apologist explains. more >>
A digital billboard that features a Christian ad telling atheists, "Thank God you're wrong," in New York's Times Square is now being used by a secular group to spread the message, "OMG, there is no god!" alongside the face of former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Julia Sweeney.
The billboard has been placed by the Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation at the intersection of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue.
The atheist ad was unveiled Friday, four days after an evangelical group, Answers in Genesis, used the same spot to run a 15-second video with the message, "To all of our atheist friends: Thank God you're wrong." more >>
Atheists have expressed their anger using "vile comments" at a new billboard campaign telling them they are wrong, according to Ken Ham of the Creation Museum.
"As expected, many atheists showed their real anger against God by some very nasty, vile comments (so they were deleted and banned). Some secularists (after some investigation) were pretending to be Christians and complaining about the campaign," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday, following the launch of the billboards on Monday.
"It was sad to see many others who I presume are Christians (or at least church attenders) making all sorts of quite ridiculous accusations against AiG because of this direct challenge to atheists." more >>
