I Am Going To Read The Bible

I grew up in a family that went to church on holidays and said grace before meals, so you could say we weren't the strictest Christian family, we just worshipped when it was most convenient. From a early age I always questioned everything especially religion! It was always so frustrating when I asked a question and the only answer I ever seemed to get was, "That is the way the lord wants it." I always thought that was one bogus excuse of an answer.

One day I even asked my mom why God…

BURN BURN BURN THE NATIONAL DAY OF “PRAYER”

nothing goes together with a murderous tyrant state

(depriving its citizens of obvious necessities like universal healthcare,

employment & good free education while stomping round the world

spending all its money on its military that beats other countries over

the head with its billy club)

better than the idiotic “faith” that backed it from the beginning

&

thanks to the forefathers who seriously believed in “god” & all…

How to be saved with the Catholic Church

In 1975 a young man made a statement to the Catholic Church to inform them that he had been abused – that is sexually assaulted on more that one occasion by one of their priests.  He also reported that other children were also being abused by the same priest. He was as much concerned for them as he was for himself. He met the church officials and gave his story while his father was asked to remain outside the room. He answered their questions honestly, even providing the names and addresses…

Maps: Comparison of Beliefs

The following maps were originally published by the London Times Faith Central blog. It's an interesting contrast between religion and science.

As much as we hear about U.S. Christians pushing I.D. in public schools and building multi-million dollar creation-themed parks, it's good to be reminded that…

Deconverting, well not really

Up until recently I had been a believer, but never a true christian. I got baptized at about 12 years old but never read the bible, I just believed in god and didn’t want to hell. The church I went too is located in Franklinton, North Carolina. Don’t bother looking for it on the map because you probably wont find it. Anyways it was a black baptist christian church, but they was always shouting and acting a fool and all that shit. I think I seen somebody's head to a 360 turn like on the…

I couldn't believe it.

A friend and I were sharing in a fun little joke on Facebook, our exchange went as

Him : "I believe in unicorns and faeries because no one can disprove them."

Me : "The classic "Burden of Proof shift". I'm proud, son.

Him : "The saved me, guided me to the light and set my astray life on the proper path to salvation."

Then, out of nowhere we have a Catholic theology student come in and say, "There's a lot of misconceptions when it…

Why I left your religion...not that I think I ever had one

My mother is Jewish...very non-practicing (closet Atheist), my father claims Buddhist (I still say closet Atheist.) The only religion I was exposed to was by way of a distant relative for a holiday or going to church with my baby sitter. Other than that I really never got an explication about "God." My parents never, even to this day tried to explain god to me. I do not remember ever asking either, I never felt I needed an explication. I just knew that I didn't believe in one.

My baby…

Freedom of, not from, religion.

How is freedom OF religion also not freedom FROM religion? It doesn't say "freedom of any available Christian denomination" So that would infer, freedom to choose Buddhism or Hindu, or (as Abraham Lincoln said) "when I do good, I feel good" THAT is my religion."
