Secular Coalition for West Virginia

The following is the text of an email I just sent out. If you're interested in secular government - even if you don't live in West Virginia - you might be interested:

You may be aware that the Secular Coalition for America is working to set up a chapter in each state. Their stated purpose is to "bring together secular Americans in each state to influence government officials, legislation, and regulations." Having already succeeded…

Moving to God's Country

     Just moved to West Virginia. Among the standard frustrations of moving, I chose the occasion to read the local paper (thankfully online), and ran across this gem in the Letters to the Editor section: Jesus is the reason for a Christmas celebration.

     Having a strong desire to make friends in my new neighborhood, I thought…

Google Plus requirement for real names is a red herring.

Google Plus (Google+) stirred up a controversy by deleting, wholesale, accounts created under pseudonyms instead of under real names. Google+ acknowledged their mistakes and is now formulating an official policy for naming conventions on their new social network.



There are legitimate reasons that users might need to use pseudonyms. The most obvious and crucial one is anonymity for political dissidents and social activists. Without that anonymity, activism can be too dangerous to…

A Better world=No religion

HEy all

Its been awhile since i blogged here but i had some thoughts on my head.

 

I think that religion (animism, poly, then monotheism) is so embedded in human history that its purpose was to articulate the chaos that makes up the natural world and also explains the suffering and frustration  afflicted by human inhabitants. In other words, religion provided a method for the worlds madness.

 

Now here's my question do you think that if we had world peace,…

A Short Reflection on Pacifism

One of the things I learned from my Christian indoctination, ironically, was pacifism.

Peace on Earth

Good Will to Men

I was not a fundamentalist. Therefore I was not taught about the apocalypse, the war that would bring the second coming, etc. My family is part of the "Reformed" Presbyterian faith. In other words, my old church took less focus on evangelism and "being a christian soldier" than on the life of Jesus, the example he set,…

Camp Quest 2010

For those of you who may not know, I'm acting as co-director for Camp Quest Texas 2010. We've roughly figured out how much we think we'll need to raise to run Camp Quest Texas...quite a bit; I'll post the official goal once we have it ironed out. So, we are in need of fund raising ideas that will bring in money; bake sales are okay but we need something bigger. Do you know of any companies which might want to sponsor Camp Quest Texas? We are also throwing around the idea of trying to get one of… Continue

Creation "Museum" Visit: The Believer / Atheist Discussion

I'm behind in updating my thoughts on the visit to the Creation "Museum" from Friday, but I want to get a specific experience down in a blog post. I was fortunate enough to engage two Christians in conversation, one a decided creationist and the other an on-the-fence Christian unsure of what to believe about evolution. This conversation is described briefly at the end of the Devin Powell article on Inside Science which was… Continue

Time to call you US Rep

Congressional representatives don't have enough on their hands and haven't learned from the fall. H.RES. 397 seeks to declare the history of the US Christian. Time to crank up the machine and get the word out. Email your rep as well.

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…
