News Flash: Loftus is Now In a Mental Facility

[Edit on August 26, 2012: For those of you new here I have explained in some detail my objections to PZ Myers, Ed Brayton and Freethought Blogs. There are two pages of posts where I have done this. Just click here for the oldest page. For the most recent page click here. On both pages my posts are to be read in reverse chronological order beginning with the oldest page.

What you'll see directly below is a bit of humor, my initial satirical take on it all, even though I could not stay in that cesspool one more day. They have subsequently treated me just like religious people do to apostates, which I think is utterly unreasonable. After all, just because I left Freethought Blogs doesn't mean I left free thought. In truth, I am their ally in our common fight against religion. Cheers.]

AP- Reported by Anonymous:

Indiana State Troopers were able to disarm John W. Loftus of two 38 Colt Specials in a crowded grocery store as he threatened suicide. "All he could be heard mumbling was that he was going to turn his guns on atheists," State Trooper Chris Hallkist told us.

Loftus is an atheist.

Judge Richard Carrion issued the order to place him in a straightjacket and locked in a padded cell until he recognizes he's insane. "That's the first step for his healing," he said.

"We knew he was going off his rocker when he quit Freethought Blogs," Ed Brayer said. "No one in his right mind would leave us. After all, our blog basically rules the whole known world."

Natalie Red is a new Freethought blogger who says, "What set him off was a grandiose notion about his own self-importance. He claims that it's his way or no way. Unlike other atheists he says he's making an enormous difference, and that others were not making a difference at all. He even had the gall to compare himself to Socrates."

We agree. No rational person would think or say these things.

Daniel Finicke, another Freethought Blogger, commented: "I knew he was headed for this when he could not distinguish between what he wrote and what he meant. He wrote, 'I guess it doesn’t matter what one’s credentials are to be here, now does it? After all, diversity is much more important.' What he meant was that 'Natalie Red is not qualified to be at Freethought Blogs but is only there because of our concern for diversity.'"

Sure, that's obvious. Anyone with a brain could see this.

Who knows what set Loftus off the deep end?

Perhaps it was because Christians started praying for him to die. Or, maybe it's because after so many years of being viciously attacked by Christians the last straw was being dismissed by his allies? We may never know.

It's not likely Loftus is going to admit he's insane any time soon though. All he keeps mumbling is that "I've got to turn my guns on atheists." PZ Meijers, head of the undisclosed mental facility, is concerned, saying "he may still try to take his own life."


  1. Now you've gone and done it!

  2. Humor? Nope.
    Satire? Nope.

    Try again.

    1. Sheesh! I liked it...

      Tired ex deist.

      Ol' Bab

  3. Plain fucking weird? Bingo!

  4. "Meijers" was funny. :)

  5. Have you considered taking some time off from blogging? Honestly, it sounds like you could use a vacation and some fresh air.

    It's difficult to delete things from the internet. Consider taking a breather before you post something that you'll regret.

    The Christian apologists will still be here when you get back.

    1. Sure, blogging is such a hard work, a person really would need some time off to rest.

      America became such a lazy land, even hobbies tire you. What's next, let's take a vacation out of World of Warcraft?

  6. Funny.

    Rolling around the floor and speaking in tongue in a church, perfectly acceptable.
    Rolling around the floor and speaking in tongue in Walmart, crazied shopper, call security.
