I am a former reverend, "goody two-shoes" and all around ex-"lover of Jesus."  Yeah, I'm not too proud of my brainwashed days, but it's part of my history. Now, I blog about my former church and my…Continue

I used to be a reverend. I recently named my former church and "discipleship" program a cult. Over the past nine months, I've blogged about my church and "discipleship" program and the abuses I faced…Continue

I'm not a Christian Anymore

Posted on February 5, 2011 at 12:12am 51 Comments

In August, 2010, Anne Rice came out and said, “I quit being a Christian. I’m out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-science. I refurse to be anti-life. In the name of Christ, I quit…

Zombie Popcorn Radio is an internet radio station started by a close friend of mine, initially to focus on horror movies, books, comics and the like. Since then the content has broadened a bit. Currently it is about 90% music and replays of old shows but once a week on Saturdays between 7pm and 9pm ET there is a live show broadcast in 3D. Last Saturday I was on to talk about the May 21, 2011 end day claim and at the last minute Brother Mike who runs www.May-212011.com requested to come on so it is an hour of us talking to him and then a general discussion in the end about atheism and religion.

You are welcome.  I was just going to ask you this morning if you minded that I jumped in like that.  I suspected that he was making you uncomfortable, but I didn't know for certain.

 

I've been an atheist since 1974, so I have been around a the block a few times and have had to deal with a lot worse than him.  I am more than happy to take him on.  My patience for that sort can wear thin.

welcome to the show. Glad to have you. Please fasten your seat belt and place all trays in the upright position, lol. We have great people on here but some are a little crazy. I fit into that group myself. So! have fun!

I came to T|A back when it was first starting out and it was mentioned on Twitter. I popped over, liked what I saw, and stuck around. I do miss the chat program we had at first, but there were coding problems with it so it's on hiatus for debugging.

You'll find that there is a lot of cool content, and a lot of cool people, here to interact with.
