heartbroken

mr. hope & change is saddened again,

as just a few weeks ago the nation mourned

the deaths of those blown away in a movie

theater,

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

hand,

he sends his little babbling bird, mr. carney,

out to do the dirty work,

telling us that it’s the gangs that kids are

joining, which…

The Contribution Of Religion To The Ubiquitous Desensitization To Harming

The Ubiquitous Desensitization To Harming



The biological asymmetry of the survival of the human species depending on pregnancies and births being severe harm only to women, while men are spared, is no rational justification for accepting harming as natural.
In entry 552 I attributed…

southern Atheist belle

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-

car-commercial-intense

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

the stale…

Ungodly Discipline AC360

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…

and now the policeman picks up his club

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---

this time,

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…

Atheist or Antitheist?

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…

Harm And The Evolution Of The Gullibility For Religion

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…

Brief Thoughts on the Chick-Fil-A Issue...

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"...
