this convo ensued after someone belittled my friend for posting a picture of the White House from her vacation and saying it's "Obama's crib" and hoping for 4 more.

This one hit close to my feminist-atheist heart! Susan Jacoby is the person I hold most responsible for my path into freethought and, later, atheism.

Great Article from AlterNet: There Are 10 Times As Many Atheists as Mormons: When Will Non-Believers Become a Political Force?

Posted on June 13, 2011 at 3:11pm 7 Comments

Excerpt:

 

"Imagine the kind of world we could live in if atheists were a political force. It would be a world where secularism is the unquestioned law of the land, where religious groups wouldn't interfere in politics unless they could put forward arguments backed by evidence that anyone could examine, and not just appeals to faith.

My Memories of Doubt

Posted on June 8, 2011 at 11:53pm 3 Comments

I remember being 9 or 10, doubting during the Xmas service at church...asking God to give me a sign. I saw one bulb on the Xmas tree moving furiously back and forth.

Thank you.  I really liked that pic.  I got it from icanhazcheezburger.com, of course.  The reason I asked about the hat is that between it and the bit of the dress you are wearing that I can see, it almost looks like you are Amish or Mennonite.  Or, "were".
