Dan Savage, of the It Gets Better Campaign, on religious attitudes to homosexuality

Perhaps a bit of a contrast to the article I posted the other day, here. Dan Savage responds to a letter from someone who "loves the Lord and does not support gay marriage". He isn't gentle about it, and I totally agree with his views: A question: Do you “support” atheist marriage? Interfaith marriage? Divorce and remarriage? All are legal, all…See More

Bullying in schools - Jesus Needs New PR

A Facebook friend just posted this article from the theist website 'Jesus Needs New PR' to her wall, and I thought it was worth reposting here. In my opinion it's an incredibly well-written, powerful, piece.The core of it:All across this country, every single day, students who identify as GLBT are experiencing hate, being bullied, getting teased, or being treated unkindly… and some of those…See More

Owen replied to Michael Sizer-Watt's discussion 'Who Are Your Favorite Philosophers?'
"To a degree. Any dedicated follower of Ayn Rand would disagree with my views (I know a few, and they do), but I think there's a lot in the basic philosophy. The details, to me, seem misguided."

Owen replied to Michael Sizer-Watt's discussion 'Who Are Your Favorite Philosophers?'
"I'll take the first two, since they're the names I came to post. Plato... maybe. He's fascinating and undeniably important, but not my favourite."

Beck guest Rabbi Lapin: "Atheists are parasites"

"Ah yes, those freeloading atheists. This is more than bigotry; I would say it is a carefully placed attack. Just have a look at the Tea Partiers; you don't have to be a right-wing nutjob in America to feel the impact when they throw around…"

Owen replied to Jason Paisley's discussion 'Most bizarre question put forth by a creationist.'
"Beautiful. As a believer in evolution, from now on I shall open all my jars of peanut butter with caution, and perhaps a certain amount of expectation. It'll be like playing the lottery every time I have breakfast!"

Owen replied to Keith Johnston's discussion 'Why are right wing Christians are so hard on homosexuality?'
"I think you've put your finger on it here. Whatever the individual reasons for disliking homosexuality (and I think plenty of people fight it through sheer, good ol' fashioned homophobia), I think a large part of the right-wing thing is a…"

Owen replied to Trevauhn Grant's discussion 'Does Atheism Exist'
"To be fair, Conservapedia was always going to be biased. Notice that the link goes on to say that Unlike Christianity, which is supported by a large body of sound evidence (see: Christian apologetics), atheism has no proof and evidence supporting…"

I was raised a Christian but never really believed any of it past the age of about ten. It took me a while to solidify that into a decision to stop going to church with my family, though.

Remember this guy? He's been a fairly regular troll poster around here, and over the last three years he's been actively threatening an increasing number atheists, sceptics and science writers.

I'm sorry that the first guy that you chose to respond to ran away. I knew that it might happen so I started a new discussion about people like him. I had saved the conversation to a Word Doc and it's attached there. I liked the thought about animals. When I take my dog out for a run, the excitement of the dance/smile/run is enough to make you aware that he's as conscious and as happy as we ever are.
