I was a little peeved by the benediction during today's Inauguration Ceremony for Barack Obama. Private prayer (though still unhelpful) is fine; but government-organized prayer is just wrong. I hope…Continue

"IIRC the guy who gave the benediction in 2009 was a homophobic bigot of a clergypuke, so this is an improvement believe it or not. Though I certainly don't disagree that it should be gotten rid of."

I was a little peeved by the benediction during today's Inauguration Ceremony for Barack Obama. Private prayer (though still unhelpful) is fine; but government-organized prayer is just wrong. I hope that in my lifetime this goes away as a standard for these types of events. "One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Thoughts?See More

Brief Thoughts on the Chick-Fil-A Issue...

Posted on August 2, 2012 at 9:58am 1 Comment

If people were more concerned with secular--HUMAN--values, people wouldn't stand in line to eat shitty fast food to show their support for OPPRESSING others in the name of religion. 

I don't understand how people can love something they can't see or prove more than they can love and care for what's right in front of them: other human beings... 

I wish we could live our lives for each other and not for what "happens when we die"...

Reason Rally Interview

So I "Googled" myself tonight to see what would come up and I found this article from the Catholic News Service. They interviewed me at the Reason Rally back in March. It's cool to see my quotes in the article and I'm proud of everything I said during that interview :-)

I just thought I'd share. Let me know what you think of the article!

Looking back on all of this,

I wanna know I made the best of

saving my rest for the grave."

This verse in "Take a Step Back" by Every Avenue reminds me of how important life is. As someone…
