http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/most-and-least-religious-places/

Unlike what I usually do when I crosspost from my blog (where I simply paste the text in), I'll provide a TL;DR here because I want to highlight the thing I found really surprising.

In a Gallup Poll where they classified people into "very", "moderately" and "non" religious, and did this…

Open Letter to Christians #3: Freedom From Religion? Yes.

Crosspost from here:

Dear Christian,

Well, actually it is both; you cannot…

Nativity Naivete

(cross posted from http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2012/12/25/nativity-naivete/#more-549)

Well Saturnalia is over–and I didn’t even get to see Saturn.

So I guess I will have to focus on Christmas instead.

The overwhelming majority of well educated Christians realize that there’s no evidence, not even from the bible, that this day is in any way the birthdate of Jesus.  I’ve heard…

I recently had occasion to be driving on I-40 from Oklahoma City (which, unlike Kansas City, is actually in the state of the same name) west to Amarillo, TX.

Easter Arithmetic (crosspost)

[Crossposted from here: http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/easter-arithmetic/  Please crosspost any comments you make in the comment section there.]

It’s still Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Easter as I write this, so it’s just under the wire.

Open Letter to Christians, #1

This is a cross-post from here:  http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2012/03/27/open-letter-to-christians-1/

Dear Christian,

Many of you believe yourself to be moral, upstanding members of your communities.  Many of you are leaders in your communites, or respected businessmen, or perhaps even clergy.

So I'd like to ask you a "what if" question.

Let's say when you get…

Christians are liking this one!

I posted the text below on my blog, http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2012/03/08/religious-polarization/, and to my surprise it got a like from one person and I am now being followed by another.  (And this is huge for the amount of traffic my blog is getting.)  I follow back to the liker and follower, and they are both Christians!

What gives?  Well I am accusing moderate Christians of not following…
