Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
If you should ever come to the quaint Southern town of Paskaloochee, in the great state of Franklin, follow your nose. Amid the fragrances of juniper, magnolia, and honey-suckle, you will detect the unmistakable scent of sassafras tea spiked with Irish whiskey. It will lead you to the porch of my meager antebellum home, where you will be invited to sit in an antique rocker and share your biography with me. In return, I will share my own with you, though I make no claim that it will not strain credulity. Until that time, my blog should suffice for introduction: http://buckoroon.wordpress.com/
Age
31-35
Why are you here?
I am always on the lookout for reasonable answers and perspectives with which to crack open (or at least satisfyingly pummel) the thick noggin of the annoyingly proactive evangelical.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
As is the case with most children, I was taught at an early age to avoid manure wherever I found it. Fortunately, I had the good sense to take this advice metaphorically as well as literally.

The Starfish and the Albatross

Posted on November 1, 2010 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

And so, for those of us who are citizens of the United States of America, our national mid-term elections are upon us. It is a time to reflect upon the achievements and mistakes of the past and to suggest the course for the work ahead. I use the word "suggest" because we cannot readily applaud the good work of those few, honest, earnest politicians without also acknowledging the overwhelming, selfish resistance constantly undermining their efforts. Plato's unscrupulous flatterers and Lord… Continue

A Belated Eulogy For A Timely Death

Posted on October 19, 2010 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

This morning, we buried a true son of Paskaloochee. His name was (is?) Earnest Hetman, but everyone knew him as Het. Everyone loved him as well, which explains why a particular incident of primary importance to the latter half of his life was curiously unmentioned by his official eulogizers. As expected, each in their turn – Het’s friends, two sons, and sole surviving sister – merely regaled us with the little, endearing moments that supposedly defined him.



There was, I suspect, some… Continue

For Solomon Burke

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 5:30am 2 Comments

In the midst of our railing against religion, it can be easy to forget the human heart that lies within its crumbling machinery. I have long been a lover of traditional gospel music, particularly the kind that developed among African-American Protestantism. While I get nothing from the propaganda undercutting it, I am easily swept up in the emotion of the performance and those lyrics which speak of humanity's common longing for solace in this world of woe. Naturally, I am even more drawn to… Continue

In Honor of National Death Month

Posted on October 1, 2010 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

And so, October is upon us again. Though the United States is largely divorced from its agricultural origins, for many, this month still marks the heart of harvest season. For the European ancestry that peppers many of our fellow citizens’ lines of descent, this earthly cycle of sowing, flowering, ripening, and reaping brought with it solemn reflection on the cycle of human life. If winter was the season of death, then autumn was the season of dying and Halloween the rough midpoint between them… Continue
