So North Carolina decided that somehow it was a good idea to vote on a civil rights issue seeing how it all worked out so well the first time. This time it wasn’t some racist ideas but it was close enough. It was about gay people having the gall to demand fair treatment under law and be afforded a legal status that is for some reason given only to heterosexual couples. They want to get married.
I’m sorry but there’s this thing called Article 6 of the United States Constitution and…
Well, I was trying to be nice and reason with them, but they didn't seem to want to...weird...lol
Anyways, here it is:
I'll be updating as it goes on…Continue

I just wanted to share this with everyone. The student involved in this incident is an old friend of mine, from elementary school. I haven't seen him in 3 years, but he is still very dear to me. I have personal experience with the vice principal who is the anti-gay bigot in this, Mr. Abell. He is not a good person or vice principal, I truly dislike him. You should also take the time to read some of the comments, it amazes me that some people are defending the VP for disqualifying him because…Continue

Hey guys, thanks for stopping in for another Sunday wrap up! You know how it goes... Let's get some Show announcements out of the way and then we'll get to the links!
I'm sure by now you've seen that The Think Atheist Radio Show has been named a finalist in the About.com Favorite Agnosticism/Atheism Podcast of 2011 category, and in our very first year! We're thrilled to be distinguished in this way. It means a lot that everyone would have nominated us and then voted for us to…Continue

But first! I trickle out Sunday School links throughout the week on Google+. No reason to wait to read all the fascinating stuff! There's a great community of people I share the links and interact with. And on…Continue
Homosexuality is an unnatural choice.
It's an argument we've probably all heard before, that homosexuals are unnatural. This is completely false. In this blog I'll talk about what is and is not natural and why homosexuality is not a choice.
Everything we do is within nature. Humans have this idea that because we live in cities we are somehow above nature. This is false. We are just one species out of over a million others living on this blue marble we call Earth. Literally…Continue
1 Cor 5:10-13... I think I said it last time, but I'll say it again. Atheists need to know this passage. It severely restricts Christians from all sorts of undesirable behavior.
It's a common theme among those with faith. They say something that just makes you go 'Wait...what?'. I'm sure most of you have seen the video in these pictures. (if not, look it up, it's fantastic). My friend posted it on FB and I watched it and I noticed that a friend of hers had commented below. I responded in kind. It's a bit to read, but it was a civil conversation, if not a bit strained on my end.
I was scanning the inter-webs and came across this article in The Washington Post's Faith section (Yes, I read the faith section quite often): Pope Seeks Protestant Allies to Combat…
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…Continue

Earlier today, I discussed the topic of LGBT individuals turning to religion for all the wrong reasons. I expressed how such behavior is absurd and unjustified, and explained how it actually hurts the gay fights for equal rights!
As a gay and atheist person, I would like to ask you for opinion.
The full article:
Thousands of conservative Christian rallied in NC for a ban of gay marriage.
Carrying Christian and American flags, over 3500 Christians gathered in the streets of the capitol of NC. Why? So they could show the world just how many ignorant fools there are in the state of North Carolina.
The article from…Continue

I fear for our progress as Americans. Even though we believe that once a civil right's victory has been accomplished we will never look back, the sad truth of it is that countries can devolve.
Look at Iran. True, it was never exactly a shinning beacon of hope and equality for anyone, but before their revolution, there were a lot more clits around.
I'm not even kidding.
Sexual mutilation INCREASED after the people "got their voice." So did the average beard length, the…Continue
PG-13 (Not very clear on if I had to put that there or not...but yes this has swears in it)
Think about it. You have a child. You raise that child, you love that child. That child would come back from school with a drawing they made for you. Your child would look up to you and come to you when they are crying. Then, one day, they come out to you.
Then it all just dissapears.
All the drawings, all the tear stained shirts, all the photos and the old…Continue
