atheist politicians

if theists were truly tolerant as they claim...why is a candidates faith so important?
atheists are the least trusted group in the USA and politicians wear their faith on their sleeves and point out their faith. Or how their beliefs have shaped their politics. So what do ya'll think would happen if an atheist ran for office?

Me (in the stylings of George Carlin.)

In the style of the late and great George Carlin, I decided to do a little rant about myself.

I am a larger than life, larger than most, kind and loving gentleman. I

am really tall and really overweight. quick to kindness and slow to

anger. Polite when I can be, I look for the inner beauty of people. I

don't overwork, overindulge, overplay, overanalyze, or over do it. I

love the arts, love animals, lover my family and love my friends. I am

pro choice, pro… Continue

Why I personally speak out about atheism and why I speak out about and against religion.

Why I personally speak out about atheism and why I speak out about and against religion.

A friend of my recently asked me why it seemed like I had a vendetta against religion. Personally, I find the word vendetta to be a bit too

strong, but I will let it go. This got me thinking about why I think it

would be privy of me to share many of the reasons why I talk about

religion and speak out against it. So here it…

Angela Merkel and Multiculturalism

Now that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has pronounced multiculturalism a failure, it's time to look at why. I don't think it's any mystery that what she's really talking about is Muslim immigrants. When she speaks of integrating into the community and adopting German values, she's speaking of Muslims. It's about time she's recognized that Muslim immigrants, as a whole, don't really care about Germany or it's values -- other than its welfare programs, of course.

The Muslim mindset is… Continue

My Evangelical Parents Respond To My Atheism

I am a product of the evangelical right. My childhood was a uniquely American experience filled with good ol' midwestern values, Elvis on the reel-to-reel, and an abiding love for Jesus. My parents thought Carl Sagan was a tool of the Devil (possibly the Anti-christ himself!) and that computer technology was something to fear. Of course they also believed that the Smurfs were satanic, so... Anyway, some time ago I 'came-out' as an atheist and have been waiting for my parents reply.…

It's about more than just getting high....

...but there is that, too.

Cannabis is a beautifully diverse crop that could improve America in many spheres.
From textiles to medicine; I'll stop short of saying that it could even lessen our dependence on foreign oil.
California is a hair away from legalizing it for adults. When Prop 19 passes (which it will) it will take an officer with the jurisdiction of a federal marshal or above to cite an individual for anything more than a legal INFRACTION. That's…

Amish: Secluded From Society

I don't know if this sect has been discussed here very much, but it is not an uncommon thing in my area of Pennsylvania to see an Amish farm, or Amish horse and buggy along side a public road.

There is an awful lot that could be discussed, but I'm only going to start the conversation with a brief summery and a few of my thoughts relating to them.

The Amish consider the Bible a trustworthy guide for living but do not quote it excessively. To do so would be considered a sinful… Continue

poems/head thoughts


Our love was the sun.

Its fire so great it shone across time.

Then in a flare it grew colder and died, collapsing inside me until nothing remained but a black hole sucking everything that once was into a deep oblivion.…

Why do christians care about abortion?

I know a while back I read a post on here by an atheist who was against abortion. I never did understand what the point was with the post. That being said, I have been thinking about why a group of people, who believe "the souls" of the innocent go to "heaven" care if a woman has an abortion.

Would it not stand to reason (I know, I know) if you believe an unborn "child" is innocent and that innocent beings go to heaven, then that innocent being would go to heaven, hence, not a problem…

Am I the only one seeing the irony here?

Hey Rratzinger, that's a good one, reality is important, I couldn't agree more. But you forget a few more "realities" that you should mention:

How about not lying about condoms and AIDS?


Yes, your concern is totally commendable! Thank you.…

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… Continue

Miners' Miracle

CNN offered up a clip about a pair of the trapped miners seeing a white butterfly deep in the mine just before the initial cave-in. They followed it and the fact that it was down there and they altered their position in the shaft "miraculously saved their lives". Moments later, the dust was so thick, they couldn't see it any more.

Another "miracle". Fine.

But we never ever hear from the miner who stopped to look at… Continue
