My mother and I have been talking, sometimes heatedly, about the existence of god. I have made several points with her but I am loathe to make her feel defensiveness about her theistic beliefs. Today I stopped by and she showed me her latest book she acquired. She is a very prolific reader and devours a couple hundred books a year easily. I wish I had that much time to devote to reading.
The book is authored by a former atheist who has reconverted to christianity and the subject…Continue
So I head to the head in the local grocery store to take care of bizness. Plop down on the porcelain throne and lo and behold there it is. The Jehovah Witness must of used this same shitter and accidentally dropped a tract! Hell I can't even take a decent dump w/o some religious whacko beatin' me over the head with their propaganda. It just doesn't stop -ever.

Murphy's is a gas station chain owned by Walmart. Today I pulled up a local one to fill up my motosickle.
In addition to the annoying gas additive commercials they try to subject you to they also have other commercials. What blares out of the speaker?
"God bless America. Captain America that is......"; it was a promo for the new action hero movie.
It's not a big deal but a little poke in my atheistic belly nonetheless.
Fox News and others made a point to illuminate the fact that the video montage NBC ran during the US OPEN golf game deleted the part of the children's recital of the pledge of allegiance that said one nation under god. OH Boy..... What a shameful thing for NBC to do. They were trying to do the right thing after many requested the edit. But the backlash by god-fearing do gooders make an apology necessary.
What a crock of shite!
Here in the Ozarks I am beset with God & America country music stations and Christian radio broadcasts. I listen to a local oldies channel and without fail there is the ever present commercials to "Come pray with us and visit the Lord at XYZ church." I was wondering what the reaction would be if I called and asked about buying a "spot" to voice my atheistic stance. Could they refuse my request? If so, on what grounds? I mean it would almost be worth the $500 or so bucks to get some…Continue
It has to be a little embarrassing to the parishioners that tornados don't give a damn about their church, synagogue, or temple.
Tornados are indiscriminate and no respecter of religion. The monster twister that ravaged Joplin yesterday wiped out the local catholic church. So if someone was inside praying to the Almighty at crunch time they would of been a goner. I guess god takes a lunch break at the wrong time. Religious people amaze me that they can thank god when they survive…Continue
It is certainly true that there are numerous inconsistencies in all religious belief systems. As to Christianity and Catholicism specifically there seems to be a high incidence of pedophilia. Members of the Catholic clergy, especially priests, seem to have a high propensity to commit this crime. Living a celibate existence is no excuse to commit these atrocities. But what really blows my hair back is that these pathetic individuals who fondle and abuse children and young men do so with the…Continue
