Big U.S. Companies You Might Not Know Are Religious

By Max Nisen | Business Insider



Talking about religion and politics can be dangerous among friends. It's doubly so for businesses.




That double-edged sword became crystal clear last year after Chick-fil-A's COO made comments about the chain's opposition to gay marriage. It…

How Jesus' Views on Marriage Proves Yahweh's Laws are NOT Absolute OR Jesus is Mistaken

 



Marriage is still viewed as a sacred institution in our society, although it has different meanings for many people.  Christians view it as a "gift from god," or a"spiritual representation" of their relationship with God.   Truth be told however, the institution of marriage came about for economic reasons, and not out of love for a god, or the love for a potential… Continue

Just Some News :)

In Oklahoma, an atheist high school student and his family face threats and intimidation from angry Christians after the young atheist had the courage to report the unconstitutional display of the Ten Commandments in his public school classrooms.

On Saturday, May 11, atheist Gage Pulliam, a Junior at Muldrow High School, explained to the Friendly Atheist why he was motivated to blow the whistle on the unconstitutional…

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…

AN ATHEIST IN THE WOODS

l

An atheist was walking through the woods.

'What majestic trees!'

'What powerful rivers!'

'What beautiful animals!'

He said to himself.



As he was walking alongside the river, he heard


a rustling in the bushes behind him.



He turned to look. He saw a…

When you actually know what I believe then you can comment!

  Every time my boyfriend meets someone new, he tells that person that I am Wiccan.  There are several reasons this is not good!  First and most importantly, I am not Wiccan, I am Atheist I believe in some of the principals of a variety of faiths/or traditions, but the basis of those beliefs is not religious, rather it is humanistic.  It is the basic principals most humans value, things like trying to be kind to others, not lieing, being ethical, working hard, trying to learn new things,…

Who's Your Daddy?

Recently, Representative Todd Aiken (R -- Missouri) caused a furor when he stated that victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant.  Soon, he was on his heels, backtracking and trying to save his race for a senate seat.  Sharon Barnes, a member of the Missouri Republican committee tried to explain his comment.  Ms. Barnes "echoed Mr. Akin’s statement that very few rapes resulted in pregnancy, adding that 'at that point, if God has chosen to bless this person with a life, you don’t kill…

Wearing a cross?

I'm an agnostic atheist. My immediate family contains no atheists though. They're all pretty much Southern Baptists, save for a couple Lutherans.

For graduation and my 18th birthday, my aunt gave me a beautiful necklace with matching earrings and bracelets. They're covered in my favorite color (teal) and peace signs, making it the perfect gift for me! I was so happy and excited to wear them. But there's crosses on there, with that hippie design (larger at top and bottom than… Continue

New Song: Jesus Tattoo (demo)

I wrote this silly song about people who have religious tattoos. It's fairly non-denominational, but I think the secular community is the real audience!

Pardon the sour notes & be sure to stay until the plagal cadence at the very end!

Hope you enjoy!

edit: I guess HTML is no good?

Why is nobody talking about Kony being a Christian?

Hey everyone. 

With Kony 2012 making the rounds all over Facebook, Twitter, and (late as usual) traditional media, I've noticed that nobody talks about Joseph Kony being the leader of a radical and violent Christian group. 

Honestly, the most I've seen is some people saying that his movement is based on "his own interpretation of the Ten Commandments", which seems like the classic "oh, they're just misusing religion" argument so often put forward by apologists.

Does…

An idea for arguing with Christians

I had the thought today that the bible verse John 14:13 - "And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son"(Jesus) would be a great way to stump a Christian. Tell them that they should ask Jesus to convert you right then and there. Although I don't expect any sort of logical response, it begs the question why a believer can't get Jesus to perform a fundamental act of Christianity for someone who is trying to spread the "good…

So lonely as an atheist...

I've been an atheist less than a year, and I have to say that it has been one of the loneliest of my life. Even surrounded by people, I have never felt more intellectually alone. The closest thing that I have to spirituality is an awed feeling of the universe, its beauty, and our place in it. But yet I'm not surrounded by anyone that I can physically see or touch to share that feeling of awe with, without invoking a god that I do not believe exists. There is no way that I can, or would, go…

Cognitive Dissonance and Republicans

Growing up, I was what I would have thought of as a Moderate to Liberal Republican. Likely it was shaped by the very conservative community in which I grown up. Around 1994, Newt came along and the pandering to Jesus began. Today it's moved so far towards kissing Jesus's ass that they can't even stand Jon Huntsman being on the same stage as Rick Perry. One Governor has a successful record at running a state, and the other has a 25 billion dollar deficit with some of the worst education…

Selling Your "Soul" For a Free Ride...

I've recently entered college, and my college of choice was fortunate enough to be 20 miles down the road from my aunt, who has agreed to let me stay with her for free. Upon the conditions that allow me to stay here are doing chores around the house, taking care of her autistic son with her (he's my cousin, it's not like I was going to say no...) and attending church with the family on Sundays.

 

Does this make me a "bad" atheist? I mean, singing and pretending I believe in the…

Masks + Red Hair = Satanist?

Ok, so this is freakin hilarious to me and I had to share.  I live and work in the South, the office building I work in has over 600 people in it and I tend to interact with all of them (IT Support and all).  Occasionally we have these charity raffles where people can donate items for charity.  So I contact the chairmen of the committee and tell them I would like to donate one of the masks from my shop for the next event and sent him the link (…

A Critique of William Lane Craig's Version of Objective Morality

 

This morning I read a blog entry written by William Lane Craig and shuddered. [http://www.reasonablefaith.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=5767 ]

 

According to Craig, his god is not required to follow "objective" moral laws.  At the same time this god is defined as perfectly good.  If it is perfectly good not to follow objective moral laws then there is no reason why humans…

What Has and Has NOT Changed? (The New and Not-So-New Normal of Marriage Equality)

Near the end of the first act of Kander and Ebb’s musical “Cabaret”, the character Herr Schultz observes, “How the world can change, it can change like that, due to one little word:  ‘Married.’”  Just a little over two weeks ago, on June 24, 2011, it seemed as if the world had changed “like that.”  The State of New York extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples—something it had declined to…

How A Christian Lost His Faith

I thought it only appropriate for my first TA blog to be a story of how I lost my faith. Let it be a lesson on how to reason with the unreasonable. First a little background on where I came from.



I was raised in a Christian fundamentalist home. My uncle is a Petroleum Engineer which he thinks…
