If a vegan kills me I swear to god…

I will give them this– This is a new anti-vax argument for me: Like most medical facilities, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital appears to require that all of its employees receive an annual flu shot. It fired Sakile Chenzira, a customer service representative, for refusing to comply. Chenzira sued, claiming that because the flu vaccine contains eggs…

File this under ‘Religion has nothing to do with morality’– Some religions have a problem with a vaccine that, when dosed appropriately early enough, virtually eliminates risk of cervical cancer, as virtually all cervical cancer is caused by HPV.  Its even better if males get the vaccine as well, not only because if fewer males…

HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS??? A couple weeks ago, the would-be-hilarious-if-they-werent-so-dangerous group, the National Organization for Marriage (OMNOMNOMONOMNOM!) had their 2008 donor list leaked via the Human Rights Campaign (pdf). One of the largest donations came from none other than the president of the John Templeton Foundation, John Templeton ($450,000) and his wife Josephine…

I think the cultural phenomena surrounding ‘theology’ or Harry Potter or Twilight is far more interesting than the ins-and-outs of the magical creatures at the center of the phenomena itself. But…

NOOOOO!!! ALL HOPE IS LOST!!! Gov. Fallin is asking Oklahomans to turn to a higher power this Sunday, July 17, 2011 and pray for rain. “I encourage Oklahomans of all faiths to join me this Sunday in offering their prayers for rain,” Fallin said. “For the safety of our firefighters and our communities and the…

I love condoms. They are a medical device that not only helps prevent pregnancy, but a whole host of sexually transmitted diseases. And, while STDs can vary from ‘dont know youre infected and doesnt have an effect on your health, really’ to ‘deadly’ to the adults that contract them, the spectrum can look very different…

Via Dianna Narciso, one of the funniest/most pathetic excuse for a child-star-gone-wild: Atheist community service. “Somewhere along this journey,” he says, “both mine and Miley’s faith has been shaken. That saddens me the most.” When they first came to Hollywood for Hannah Montana, the two of them would drive down the freeway together to the…
