That sucks. Do they tell you why it was flagged? Do they associate the word "Insurgency" somehow with the dreaded "T"-word? (The word that starts with "T" and ends with "t" and has "error is" in it).

Someone flagged my profile at Google+ so they blocked it. I don't know how long it will take for them to get back to me. Really? Shouldn't there be a safeguard against suppressing freedom of speech? Especially at Google, of all places.

An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear".

What a riot! The pastafarian response to burkas! I prefer my spagetti with crushed garlic soaked in extra virgin Arbequina varietal olive oil, and shredded Pecorino Romano. A religious experience for sure, surpassing all other communion experiences. All other sauces are sacriledge.

LOL  Epic WIN!

 

I do wonder if Pastafarians will start having internal disagreements and schisms...such as which is best, Marinara sauce, or Alfredo?  My own preference is Alla Checca...

This News Release has me steaming:

http://ffrf.org/news/releases/church-complains-good-without-god-bil...

A billboard featuring a cheerful student saying, “I can be good without God,” was too much for the delicate sensibilities of a local church in Columbus, Ohio, which insisted late last week that a local billboard company remove the message.

The billboard picturing Dylan Galos, a Columbus student and atheist, was removed and is awaiting placement at an alternate eastside Columbus location.

Not so much that a church complained, that's to be expected from people who are obviously unsure about their invisible imaginary friend's existence, but that the billboard company caved in to the complaint and moved the sign to another location.  Why does a whine from a church outweigh the rights of the people who paid for the billboard?

Well put, Wanda & Jeronimo!  The more I read here and on various other atheist resources, the more confident I become in my ability to share why I am an atheist when asked.  The knowledge I've gained is invaluable, even from comments like Jeronimo's.  Thanks to all :)

Hey Wanda, thanks for the support.

I think if everyone do a little bit at the end we will achieve something big. If we just change the word religion for mythology in every discussion we have, this word will be more and more common. At the same time we have to take advantage of every opportunity to point out the nonsense of religions and criticizes the advantages they have. Let’s share it.

Have a great day,

Comment by Wanda T on June 29, 2011 at 8:29am
Very well articulated, Jeronimo! You make an excellent case and I'm happy to join you in the endeavor.  I'm one who sees great potential in individual effort. Every paradigm ever shifted started with a single push.
