A music video posted on the homepage of the Rock Beyond Belief Festival, that's being held for atheist servicemen and women in March at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, has roused the ire of several Christian blogs and commentators.
Filmed for the song "Hysteria" by rock band Aiden, the video (posted below), begins with several shots of church and synagogue burnings. Indeed, the song itself uses what appears to be lyrics…Continue

I brewed a pot of jasmine tea to begin with. I spooned it three teaspoonfuls of leaf into the pot of hot water, making sure it didn’t boil to avoid unnecessary bitterness. After a minute and a half of steeping I removed the leaves and went outside.

However, in writing music I have found atheism a very rich source to draw upon for…Continue
I've always felt nothing but disdain for the argument of "Well, at least religion keeps some people in line. It teaches good morals."
Mostly because that's bullshit. If you actually read and followed the Christian holy book, you'd see that the morality there is dubious at best, and bat-shit crazy at worst.
True, most Americans aren't so big on stoning other people now. They've instead evolved to support the death penalty and console themselves by pipe-bombing abortion clinics.…Continue
After a day of training at Fort Eustis, Smith and other trainees were normally released to have personal time, but on May 13, Smith and dozens of others were "required" to march in formation to a concert headlined by an evangelical Christian rock band.
