My stepson found the following online:"I call my weed the Koran, 'cause when I burn that shit, I get stoned.""Having a religion is like having a penis: it's OK to have one, it's OK to be proud of…Continue
...America was making some progress towards becoming a secular nation, what with all our many secular/atheist organizations, you realize what an uphill climb the progress of reason will be. The…Continue
I recommend to all my fellow heretics the cover story of this month's Atlantic. "What ISIS Really Wants" makes it eminently clear that defining motivation of ISIS is indeed religion, the most…Continue
