Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

More hatred instigated by religion, from The Jerusalem Post:

 

Twenty-seven rabbis' wives signed a letter distributed by the Lehava organization calling upon Jewish women not to date Arab men, not to work in places where Arabs are employed and not to volunteer for national service with them.

Comment by Christopher Baughman on January 9, 2011 at 9:44pm

And they wonder why people are upset about them inciting violence?

"Get on Target for Victory in November

Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office

Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly."

 

...Words of the campaign against her at last elections. I find it funny that Tea Baggers claim "we've never seen him (Jared) at any events" as if that was relevant!!! The purpose of the group is to sway minds to violence, whether the swayed person ever shows up at any event is completely irrelevant. The point is, this continued rhetoric of violence creates violence. oh surprise.

Comment by Christopher Baughman on January 9, 2011 at 3:18am

I love how they're saying he's left wing for owning the Communist Manifesto while completely ignoring the fact that he owns Mein Kampf as well.  This man was just nuts, and I've no doubt in my mind that this fiery rhetoric coming from various outspoken conservatives concerning, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

 

Now I'll admit to not being immune from bringing up that phrase in previous points of my life.  But I'm not in the public spotlight either.  I'm not the one people are looking up to regarding the future of this nation.  And even then when I brought it up it was strictly limited to the question of where our nation is going by giving increasing amounts of power to the executive branch.  You'll be living in interesting times if you ever see a President prosecuted for war crimes on either the national or international stage.  Regardless after finding the video of the speech Keely referred to on a site I soon found in the comments section people advocating similar arguments to Jefferson's speech regarding revolution.  And how what happened to this congresswoman wasn't necessarily a bad thing.  

 

I find it rather ironic that some people I know locally wonder why I fear I'll see either a civil war or an insurrection in my lifetime, within the US.
