Beating round the burning bush- hopeless rant on politics in the Middle East.

I didn't vote in the last Israeli elections. In the ones before I voted for the "senior citizens' party"- more as a protest vote than anything else. I've lost all hope and trust in politicians- not because they're crooked- but because none of them has the power or guts to address the real reason for this ridiculous conflict in the middle east that's destroying the lives of so many people- religion.



Every year it's the same thing- moderates on both sides get together, draw new lines… Continue

god to blame?????

i have heard the saddest thing from my own partner. earlier this year our 3 yr old son was diagnosed with autism. sad, yes but it could be a whole lot worse. hes not doomed to die in 3 months time. hes not going to be in a wheelchair etc. as long as my son is healthy and happy then theres nothing to stress about.

Why I'm proud, dammit

From Not My God

Profession of "Faith"

Ever since my de-conversion there is one statement from believers that irritates me time and time again. We have all heard it, it is the common fall back for just about every argument against christianity. Every time I have argued the plagiarism, absurdities, contradictions, lies, cruelty and intolerance of the Bible, this statement, or something similar, invariably gets thrown in my face: “You just have to have faith”.

Women, God Wants You To Take Off Your Pants!

I was doing a search or two the other day and ran across a site that, at first, seemed to be a joke in a similar vein as the Landover Baptist Church. But, it is real--real scary. It's Jesus-is-savior.com.
