Il papa “progressista” di nuovo contro l’aborto

Un po’ di tempo fa l’aveva paragonato al nazismo. Ieri ha sostenuto che abortire sia come pagare un sicario per fare fuori qualcuno. Praticamente un omicidio di stampo mafioso. Il papa “progressista”, che piace a tanti sedicenti laici, continua la sua crociata contro i diritti delle donne. Il capo di un’associazione, che se non fosse…… Continue reading Il papa “progressista” di nuovo contro l’aborto

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 7: “I’ll pray for you”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. Usually there are two cases in which people say “I’ll pray for you” to an atheist. The first one is when you are in a difficult time in your life or when you are making some big change, and a friend or family member who is a…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 7: “I’ll pray for you”

Cose da non dire a un ateo, 7: “Pregherò per te”

Nota: una versione in inglese di questo post si può leggere qui. Tipicamente ci sono due situazioni in cui a un ateo viene detto “pregherò per te”. La prima è quella in cui ci si trova ad affrontare un periodo difficile o un cambiamento importante nella propria vita e questa frase ci viene rivolta da un…… Continue reading Cose da non dire a un ateo, 7: “Pregherò per te”

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 6: “What if you’re wrong?”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. What if I’m wrong? Obviously anybody could be wrong, since nobody is infallible (not event the pope, sorry Catholics). The problem with this question is that it suggests that if I’m wrong about being an atheist, the believer who asks it must be right and so their…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 6: “What if you’re wrong?”

Nuovo scandalo pedofilia per la Chiesa, questa volta in Germania

Dove sarà il prossimo scandalo pedofilia per la Chiesa cattolica? Ormai non ci si chiede nemmeno più se ce ne sarà un altro, tanto è scontata la risposta. Escludendo l’Italia, dove non c’è nessuna volontà politica di indagare sui crimini ecclesiastici, a causa dei forti legami tra le gerarchie cattoliche e le istituzioni del paese,…… Continue reading Nuovo scandalo pedofilia per la Chiesa, questa volta in Germania

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 5: “Have you read the Bible?”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. Arguing on Twitter, after I said that God doesn’t exist, the person I was talking to retorted with “have you read the Bible?” It should be clear that reading the Bible is not required in order to have an opinion on the existence of God, just…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 5: “Have you read the Bible?”

Le balle degli antiabortisti sulla contraccezione di emergenza

Da chi vuole ridurre il più possibile l’aborto per “difendere la vita” ci si aspetterebbe un sostegno incondizionato alla contraccezione. L’accesso ai metodi anticoncezionali più efficaci, unito a una seria educazione sessuale rivolta a bambini e adolescenti, è l’unico modo per ridurre le gravidanze indesiderate e, di conseguenza, gli aborti. Predicare l’astinenza non serve a…… Continue reading Le balle degli antiabortisti sulla contraccezione di emergenza

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 4: “If you don’t follow Jesus, you’ll go to Hell”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. Yeah, atheists will go to Hell. There are a lot of reasons why I’m not worried in the slightest. First of all, a lot of interesting people will be there. While religious people will spend their time in heaven praising God, I’ll get to chat with…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 4: “If you don’t follow Jesus, you’ll go to Hell”

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 3: “Atheists find God when facing death”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. There’s a myth that says atheists stop being atheists when they face death. Those who claim this give as proof the (alleged) deathbed conversion of some famous non-believers, or maybe a personal story involving a relative, friend or acquaintance who has found God after a serious illness. There are…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 3: “Atheists find God when facing death”

Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 2: “Without God, what is the meaning of your life?”

Note: this post was previously published in Italian here. “If God does not exist life has no meaning”. This is another common statement, that obviously makes no sense. First of all, the logical connection between the existence of God and the meaning of life is not clear at all, so to me the conclusion seems just…… Continue reading Things you shouldn’t say to an atheist, 2: “Without God, what is the meaning of your life?”
