It has been reported that Ireland is now in the top ten for people claiming to be “convinced atheists”. We are still in a minority but this is great news. There is also another story of the failure of a recent recruitment drive by the Catholics to find any replacement priests. So as the majority of the diehard Catholics are over 60, the ratio of Atheists to theists should increase again. All good news to my ears. Teach, don't preach.…Continue
I hear Christians and those on the "right" making the claim of how we should return our country to the way it was when the founding fathers started it. As if the founding fathers created the United States to be a Christian nation, they didn't. Most of the people who came to America prior to the creation of the United States and after, will cite their coming to the US for economic and/or religious freedom and this is well documented. In the case of religious freedom, one has to ask: if the…Continue
When I say I hate you, there are a few things you need to understand.
I do not hate you because of your race. We're all Homo Sapiens. We differ in the details, but at our core, we're so similar that it hardly matters at all what our skin color is. This reason is also why I do not hate you because of your gender, or your sexuality. These things are meaningless, in the big picture.
I do not hate you because of your religion. I've been on the receiving end of that hatred.…

mr. hope & change is saddened again,
as just a few weeks ago the nation mourned
the deaths of those blown away in a movie
now a skinhead takes out 6 in a Wisconsin
Sikh temple &
yet the refrain is the same---
not only will he not address the real issues at
he sends his little babbling bird, mr. carney,
out to do the dirty work,
telling us that it’s the gangs that kids are

never did like the southern accent,
no matter how gorgeous the lady was
whose mouth it was coming out of---
always had a preference for the
NYC toughness or the sophisticated-
langue des Londoniens
to be truthful, it wasn’t the accent
but the christ that bubbled out from the
mouths of every individual he
encountered whilst sweltering in
the haze of Tennessee or

Nothing and I mean nothing gets my blood boiling more than religious corporal punishment. I caught another installment of Anderson Coopers Ungodly Discipline segment on TV, I then watched more on youtube and learned about The Independent Fundamentalist Baptists or IFB. After listening to the stories from 'survivors' told and hearing about those who did not survive their godly punishment. After my initial rage I thought this: Why in America are these religious institutions or cults given so…Continue
Where I live in the southeast, I rarely see black or Latino people in Starbucks. However, when I went to Atlanta recently, I walked into a Starbucks and I was the only white person there (including the employees). It made me wonder if minorities feel uncomfortable and awkward when they are the only person representing their race (whatever that term means, it's actually a biologically vague term).
What's way more uncomfortable for me is when I'm with a group of people and they all are…Continue

uncle sam took a moment to sit down
at the diner counter & shove a couple more
doughnuts down his gullet,
but don’t you worry,
now that Kofi Annan has thrown in the towel,
the big fucking bully of the world
is gonna get its way again---
Sec. Clinton will no doubt come rumbling out
bantering on about how Putin is the closest thing to
the christian imaginary boogeyman
whose name is just as long as his…Continue

I was out as both an atheist and a bisexual while I worked at the Salvation Army, and had co-workers who were lesbian, heterosexual, Mennonite, Catholic, atheist -- all across the spectrum. We rarely talked religion in our time laughing, working, and hanging out together. Occasionally though, the volunteers I worked with would sheepishly ask me if I'd be willing to answer some questions they had about atheism. These were great conversations. I found that many of them were familiar with the…Continue
Harm And The Evolution Of The Gullibility For Religion
In entry 547 I compared two videos revealing the atrocities suffered by the children in Kinsey's research. While one was as seemingly unbiased documentary, the other was biased by the christian religion.
This brought me back to the old question, why…
Hello everyone i am a strong atheist and the bad thing is i live in the south(full of religious nut jobs).
I am surrounded my christians and all those very religious people and when I try to tell them im atheist they assume im satanic or im a bad person. i just need help on how to deal with people like this.
For awhile now ive been an atheist and when i tell people i am they think i am a horrible person. What i want to know is whats so bad about atheism? Of course my answer is nothing.
If people were more concerned with secular--HUMAN--values, people wouldn't stand in line to eat shitty fast food to show their support for OPPRESSING others in the name of religion.
I don't understand how people can love something they can't see or prove more than they can love and care for what's right in front of them: other human beings...
I wish we could live our lives for each other and not for what "happens when we die"...
