Prayer Chain

I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter if what you're saying makes sense.

Example #1: One evening I was watching Extreme Home Make Over. (I know, bad idea.) An entire city was devastated by a horrible tornado. One part of the show centered around this old woman whose house had been completely demolished but the heart warming part was that God spared her rose garden. Really? That line of thinking seems a little backwards to me. Ok, so God was like, "I need to destroy this… Continue

Scientists' stem cell breakthrough ends ethical dilemma

Experts in Britain and Canada find way to make stem cells without destroying embryos

Make War, Not Love: Violence, Sexuality, and Christianity.

"Could you read the back of this box and tell me if there's any sexual content in this movie?"

The woman across the counter from me holds out the DVD expectantly, and I take it. It's Saw II, part of the now 5-movie franchise which makes a point of being unnecessarily gory. I locate the rating so lovingly bestowed upon the film by the MPAA.

"It's rated R, for gore, violence, and language mostly."

"But no sex,… Continue

The Religious Mindset

What makes the "hardcore" religious so... "hard headed"?

I remember not too long ago watching a news clip that showed two people talking about political parties. No matter how one of them tried to proclaim that either party can be wrong at any time and asked if the other person would side with the right party if the time came, the other kept saying that she would never change her party affiliation, she is a democrat and will be a democrat never a republican.

And i… Continue

If there is a God...

Sometimes I wonder if i'm wrong. What if there IS a God? What would be his desires? What does he want from us?

The more I think about the question the more I realize the obvious answer is.....nothing.

An omnipotent being IS everything therefore he has no NEEDS or WANTS. A supreme being who manipulates the fabric of existence at will lacks nothing nor needs anything.

A God who desires worship, praise and submission is not a God at all. These are qualities of men.… Continue

If you haven't already; watch this douche then read the story.

Vatican rejects bishop's apology

Bishop Williamson in the UK

The bishop said he did not mean to cause offence

The Vatican has rejected an apology by a British bishop who denied the full extent of the Holocaust.

Dear people of differnt faiths.

Dear people of different faiths.

You are all apparently going to hell or where ever it is you believe the bad guys go.

According to the Christians if you don't follow the bible you will go to hell, according to Islam if you don't follow the Qur’an you will go to Jahannam; Jehovah's witnesses believe that if you are not a Jehovah's witness you will not gain entry to paradise therefore ceasing to be.

All religions believe in different ways of getting to 'Heaven'… Continue

Discovering the secularist cause (New article at Examiner)

Here's my latest at, under my new title, "DC Secularism Examiner." It's a brief history of what brought me to writing about atheist activism.

A taste:

As I put my career in professional theatre temporarily aside (populated by a generally liberal and socially tolerant demographic) and toward politics, I came to realize that while my own…

The Facebook Debate

I know it has been a while since I posted on my blog. Sorry :S.

Unfortunately I am just too damn lazy and am so tired after work, that writing in my blog is more often than not the last thing I consider doing when I get home.

However, today I thought I would write a little, becuase I engaged in a very interesting facebook discussion with an old family friend from back home…

The whole thing started when I posted the following as my facebook… Continue

First post; glad to be here.

I am so glad I found this community; so glad I have joined.

Already I am seeing other like minded people on this website that think just like me; yep we atheists actually use our brain for thinking unlike non-atheists who just go along with what the church tells them.

I am so sick of religious bullshit going on in the world; we need to not ban religion but take religion out of governments, schools and other places where they can be harmful to the human… Continue

Oral Sex in Accordance with God's Will

Some Christian views on oral sex.

Since the publication of our original article on anal sex and God’s will, we have received several inquiries asking to clarify God’s position concerning oral sex. We are gratified that so many Christians are hungry for the word of the Lord and are actively seeking the Truth so that they may fulfill His plan in all areas of their lives.

The Good News About Oral… Continue

Well that was exciting.

Haha, Wow. My last post of my rant against trendy vegans/vegetarians got rather exciting and out of hand. More than likely my fault, but I rather like the people of this site so I took it down as to not offend or alienate anyone on the site that saw it as a personal attack on all people that are vegetarian.

The amount of replies that took away from my post things that I didn't mean was astounding, as I have had this post on other sites and not gotten so much offense. I can only assume that… Continue

Is Militant Atheism Detrimental?

Now I am not expected to go into extreme specifics or go into too much detail but just basically throw this out there and let it be know. If you disagree don't be a dick. :P So I hear a lot of people talking about how Militant Atheism is a bad thing for the image of Atheism and I came to one final conclusion:

It's complicated.

I mean what is Militant Atheism? Asking to have "God" removed from the pledge? Wasn't that how it originally was? Being against religion? Even… Continue
