Part 2 of my ongoing coverage of the Texas State Board of Education's ruthless commandeering of the United States education system.
“We’ve been amazed at the divisiveness and the dysfunctionality of the board. Under this chairman’s leadership, I’m afraid our State Board of Education has been ridiculed and become the laughingstock of the nation.”
It's been a good while, friends. Lately I've been experimenting with making a more conscious effort to live life instead of just writing about it, and it has regrettably gouged a nice big hole into the time I used to dedicate to both this site and my own projects. You may not even remember me.
Either way, I'm back again today because there what I believe to be a very dangerous threat has surfaced within the…
1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs
2 And no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man…
Foremost, a preview of strange new creatures at play in the darkness:
The good thing about this old house is that there is absolutely no guesswork in coming to the imminent conclusion that her sole intent is to devour us all alive. One hesitant step through her moldy threshold and a subsequent stroll across endless lengths of cracked, wavy oak is enough to illicit the lust of her ancient maw. Two overstuffed leather chairs serve as solemn sentries just beyond… Continue

It was January 1st, 1993 when she died, leaving me with little but a name and a few scarce instances in the future in which I would find myself struggling to draw her ghostly memory to the front of my mind. The way my father would smile when he recollected his favorite stories of his time with her told me more than the photographs ever could. She helped them teach me to walk, and I'm fairly certain she was there for my first words. The first words that ever truly stuck with me belonged to my… Continue
Tonight I'm going to do something I have rarely done in the two years I've been making this feeble attempt to write about the innumerable threats of faith - I'm going to discuss matters of a more intimate nature. I have chosen to write about what is happening with me, right now.
I don't like doing this. It's a stupidly selfish endeavor, and I never had this sort of thing in mind whenever I sat down to dream up this sordid little project. Welcome to the… Continue
On days like this there is nothing worse to do than sit back, crack open a cold bottle of frothy hate and watch everyone around me rip themselves apart. Piece by agonizing piece they twist and thrash and gnaw at one another until the earth around us is painted with senseless splatters of gore. There is no rhyme, nor reason. There is no hope. As the tattered, pulverized remnants of every shining hope fall to the floor there is only the ghost of a rabid and senseless chattering now whispering,… Continue
Note: I know probably everyone else has been blogging and writing articles about this shite already. This is just my small take on it while I prepare to accost your sense of dignity with some new writing hopefully tomorrow.
Earlier today the quivering Christian masses of Twitter were unreservedly appalled to find that the primary topic for discussion (Trending Topic, if you will) happened to be NO GOD. Several puckered conservative buttholes later we… Continue
I normally don't concern myself with such futile pursuits, but it's been a slow day at work so far and I somehow found myself in the mood for punishment. Gaze on in horror as this exuberant woman ruthlessly rakes my tattered hide over the proverbial coals.

All too often we hear so much about prominent myths that predate Christianity and call into question the most fundamental aspects of both the Old Testament and the life and times of Jesus Christ. We've been brought to the edge of our seats by accounts of ancient Sumerian texts dating back to 4000 B.C. which outline tales commonly associated with the Bible. We've wriggled in anticipation and glee at the ethereal antics of Mithras, the Roman predecessor of our modern savior. While these are very… Continue
I'm pretty sure I know what a lot of you are expecting from this. It's supposed to be a dark discussion in which we explore the sinister intentions of terrible people who have inflicted insurmountable amounts of damage upon their unsuspecting peers. I'm supposed to offer up several different opinions about how these horrifying individuals came to be so inconceivably twisted and which responsibilities a modern society should undertake in order to snuff this type of thing out. Were they born with… Continue
"Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people."

Here’s a not-too-recent favorite from the archive of a Myspace blog I’ve been running for the last couple of years. Enjoy.
Just to make sure we have an understanding, I’d like to start this one off by clarifying a couple of points. I generally do not enjoy having to present my potential readers with information that many of them already possess. Centering a blog around said knowledge makes me feel like less of a peer and more like a pretentious dickhole who likes to rattle his own… Continue

I was in the pastor’s office of my church the first time I ever considered committing suicide. It was a gentle summer’s night in the rural southeastern collective of my youth. The air was sweet with honeysuckle and filled with the incessantly soothing chirp-chirp-chirp of crickets. Lightening bugs drifted lazily above the dewy landscape as the trees danced in the breeze. It would have been a picturesque vision worthy of any cherished childhood memory had I not somehow found myself locked in a… Continue
“How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?”
Winston thought. “By making him suffer,” he said.
“Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
To live in Christ, one must first die to the self.…Continue

New research confirms that Christianity is a gateway faith for most teens who experiment with it.
Some will tell you Christianity is a harmless faith, but the Journal of the American Free Thought Association isn’t one of them.
Young people who worship the Christian god are two to five times more likely to move on to more destructive anti-social tendencies. That is the formal opinion of researchers, who published their conclusions from a recent study in the Journal of the… Continue
Sometimes it seems the most primitive acts of survival are a chore. Sometimes it seems ironic that my body can take so much more abuse than my mind, which at times feels as if it will liberate itself from my skull and sink into the inky void of this place. When you feel as if you don’t have a home, there is no need for voices in your head to drive you insane. All you have to do is listen to the voices around you.
On my way to work the other day I had the distinct misfortune of coming… Continue

Family Policy Network opposes adding ’sexual orientation’ to ‘hate crimes’ categories, primarily because it is a move designed to elevate immoral lifestyles to civil rights status. Moreover, it poses a serious threat to religious liberties.
Family Policy Network is calling for a nation-wide boycott against America’s largest greeting card company for aligning itself with liberal activists who want to redefine morality and the institution of marriage. FPN announced the…Continue
1) The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.
