"Been reading Hitch's last book, "Mortality", and it makes me miss him. He was brilliant in life and brave in the face of death and he did it all w/out the crutch of religion. The world just isn't the same w/out him. "

Needing Help of a Scholastic Nature

Hello, Dears!I'm in need of some academic assistance and I was hoping some of you might have some suggestions to help get me out of a rut. I am in a Non-Western Civilizations class and have a rather long paper to research and write by the end of the quarter. I have chosen for my topic to discuss comparing/contrasting the attitudes of European countries towards their Atheist population with the attitudes of the Americans towards Atheists. So far, I have found decent sources, but I am lacking…See More

A Mormon Just Believes (in ruining lives)

Here is the link to the article which will explain my discussion: http://prideinutah.com/?p=11093 What you'll find, should you click on it, is a story about yet another suicide by a newly out-of-the-closet gay man who was also a long-time Mormon. True to the form of the Mormon church, (and how he didn't see this coming, I'm really not sure) he was swiftly excommunicated, his wife of many years snatched up their kids and took off, and…See More

About Me:
I was raised in the church, but I unshackled my mind from it and now I feel truly free. I celebrate my Celtic roots and spend my time working, reading, listening to music and frolicking through life with my husband and puppy :)

Why are you here?
My parents are both Christian, my mother more so than my father. After my sister announced her removal from my family's traditional faith, she caused my mother great upset. I can't bring myself to break my mother's heart by revealing my personal disenchantment with god. So I'm here enjoying the freedom of discourse and support that I know I won't find within my family.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I work for a company that aids people within the MRDD community. After working with these extraordinary individuals, it became impossible for me to support the banner of a kind, just, loving god who would either allow people to be born into these challenging (sometimes utterly heartbreaking) lives or deliberately create them to live these lives. No loving god would purposely put people through what I have witnessed with my own two eyes. And if such a god does exist, I don't want any part of it.

Getting Away with Jihad

Posted on August 23, 2011 at 2:24pm 1 Comment

A random thought occurred to me today and it doesn't seem to want to leave my head, so I'm posting it here to see who else might make heads or tails of it. 

As a rule, the god of the Christian bible does not appreciate people going around besmirching his good name and reputation. When people who are supposed to be his followers behave badly, he either smites them/their family/their entire community, or he punishes them in some other form or fashion (i.e. Moses fucked up and struck a…
