"Fox" hypocrisy

Started this discussion. Last reply by Unseen Dec 16, 2015. 4 Replies

The bigoted blabbermouths at “Fox News” never tire of excoriating the Obama Administration for not using the term, “radical Islamic terrorism.”  So why don’t they?  They don’t because they don’t want…Continue

I am willing to concede that the refusal by Obama and Clinton to label these terrorists acts by ISIS as being examples of “radical Islam” if Republicans will also attack them for not admitting that…Continue

gay marriage decision

Started this discussion. Last reply by Karen Eliot Jul 6, 2015. 6 Replies

To my way of thinking, the most heartening aspect of the Court’s gay-marriage decision is the fact that, according to the latest polls, 63% of Americans support it.  What that tells me is that 63% of…Continue

First of all, in order to keep from inviting a glut of emails, I am asking that only Christians reply.Christianity is a cult - a cult of UNREASON.  Everything about Christianity is an implicit or…Continue

"Fox" hypocrisy

The bigoted blabbermouths at “Fox News” never tire of excoriating the Obama Administration for not using the term, “radical Islamic terrorism.”  So why don’t they?  They don’t because they don’t want to give the impression, as “Fox” gleefully does, that all Muslims are evil.   “Fox” hypocrites, though, never use the term “radical Christian terrorism.”  Given that 99% of all religiously-inspired terrorism and mass murder in the U.S. is committed in the name of a Biblical, Christian God, it is…See More

Radical Christianity

I am willing to concede that the refusal by Obama and Clinton to label these terrorists acts by ISIS as being examples of “radical Islam” if Republicans will also attack them for not admitting that the nine Crusades and the Inquisition were examples of “Radical Christianity.”  And shouldn’t they condemn the Serbians who perpetrated the most horrific ethnic cleansing since the Holocaust for being “Christian terrorists”?  And finally, doesn’t the fact that devout Lutheran, John List, slaughtered…See More

scriptural favorites

Posted on November 28, 2012 at 5:50pm 1 Comment

I am occasionally asked to explain when I became an atheist.  I have several stock answers, but one of my favorite is, “When I read the Bible.”  

Here are a few selected verses from both the Old and New Testaments that pretty much explicate both the “morality” and “compassion” of God.  Choose one, some, or all of them at your leisure.  If you only have the energy to choose one, I recommend my favorite:  2 Kings 2:23-24. 

Or if you’re too lazy to bother looking them up at…

flawed education

Posted on October 15, 2012 at 7:42pm 16 Comments

Here is a question many of you would probably consider a bit whimsical, if not heretical; but I assure you, it has a dead serious intent.  If you were education czar, what would YOU require be taught (or not taught) in American schools?

Let me get you started.  Here are three things that I believe SHOULD be taught but AREN’T: metric system; evolution; critical thinking.

And here are three that ARE being taught, but SHOULDN’T: spelling; long division; propaganda.

Making God

Posted on October 7, 2012 at 6:59pm 10 Comments

Imagine that there is no God.  So your species has a meeting and decides it wants or needs at least one god.  What kind of god would you propose?  What would be its attributes?  Its powers?  Its motivations?  I have definite ideas about that, which I may post here later; but the purpose here is not to debate MY conception of an ideal god, but to give you the opportunity to describe yours.  Details, please!  

the ultimate prayer

Posted on February 12, 2011 at 3:49pm 3 Comments

   I just read Richard Raymond's atheist prayer.  Here's mine, verbatim.

   Dear God.  Kill me.  Please!  I have lived a full life with no (well, a few small ones, maybe) regrets.  I'm ready to terminate my existence.  I'm waiting, God.  Nothing's happening.  I'll try a little harder: please, please, pretty please, oh great God.  I know you have the power to kill me; so why don't you?  It shouldn't be too hard; after all, I'm 75 years old. You could just give me a heart attack.  God,…

Hey Dale, all I was saying is that it saddens me greatly how people can still get away with dishonouring the bill of rights in the western world. Especially when it's children. I mean, I thought beating and restraining a child in an uncomfortable position as well as subjecting them to mental and verbal abuse was illegal, but maybe that's just me.
