American Christians "Saving" Foreign Orphans

Apparently folks in the Christian Quiverfull movement are being targeted with another message that conveniently increases the size of the flock: there is a global orphan crisis--163 million children in the Third World in need. The actual statistic is 17 million orphaned children, many of whom live with other family members. What does it mean for the people of Third World nations when hoards of well-intentioned American Christian families seek to rescue these non-existent orphans? A slew of…

American Paradise of Christianity

Lets say we removed all non Christians from and area of the US. What do you suppose would happen? I think Christians have some crazy notion that everything would be just peachy. Life would be paradise! There would be no violence, no differences and peace for all. Right? Does history show otherwise? Without something for them to disagree on would they slowly divide and destroy themselves over time? What do you think would happen?

Now Is Not The Time For Atheists To Back Down

Why We Need To Kick It Up A Notch...



The American Atheists, Inc. lawsuit regarding the 17-foot-tall Christian Cross Memorial has generated a lot of buzz about the method that some of us use to advance our cause. There are those who are adamant that we should be non-aggressive, respectful and tolerant of those who hold religious beliefs and that we should not be outspoken. However, there are those of us who just cannot adopt the “live and let live” philosophy, because the favor is not… Continue

Is TV Too Gay?

A discussion that got under my nerves and electrically shocked me into a spastic fit and eye twitches about the hit Fox t.v show "Glee", and, personally, I find that only until recently has there been a decent representation of gay teens on T.V/Movies, if any had been made at all in the past.



In this video, you'll see Bryan Fischer, director of American Family Association, which as you all know upon hearing, has to do with some sort of bigotry and…

A Belated Eulogy For A Timely Death

This morning, we buried a true son of Paskaloochee. His name was (is?) Earnest Hetman, but everyone knew him as Het. Everyone loved him as well, which explains why a particular incident of primary importance to the latter half of his life was curiously unmentioned by his official eulogizers. As expected, each in their turn – Het’s friends, two sons, and sole surviving sister – merely regaled us with the little, endearing moments that supposedly defined him.



There was, I suspect, some… Continue

One in an odd blue moon on our atheist forebears

So i was thinking about Madalyn Murray O'Hair. I bet most of you are too young to remember her (as i scan the demographics, a significant portion of you are in your mid 20s and younger). And a number of you aren't American.



I hope I'm not repeating a post if any of you mentioned O'Hair already.



Madalyn Muarry O'Hair was the founder of American Atheists. Founded in 1963. When this country was knee deep in Christian dogma. Good grief, in my history class I learned people… Continue
