A crass topic heading leading to an even more crass metaphor of religion being full of it? Yes indeed, but think about it... People claim the bible is the divine communication from an omniscient…Continue

Ronald Reagan in Bedtime for Bonzo, Heston in Planet of the Apes and Clint in Every Which Way But Loose*.For people who hate evolution so much they sure love to pal around with those damn dirty apes, the closest  and most visually persuasive reminder of our common lineage.Is there some sort of monkey movie litmus test…See More

In interview with Catholic magazine, Father Benedict Groeschel says the children are the “seducers” and that child rapists should not be punished for first offense and even calls Jerry Sandusky “this poor guy”.The “poor guy” who rapes children! Holy cow! What in the world was in the rest of that interview that they decided, “Hey, let’s publish the ‘children are the seducers’ stuff, it is substantially less crazy”. I can only imagine Father Groeschel was riffing on things like: “So what if the…See More

"Behold the power of prayer! Although, more black people living in New Orleans, so I think it is more plausible that Mormons prayers saved Tampa and punished the sons of Ham in a two-birds/one-stone deal. The mormons are nothing if not efficient."

Your film sounds interesting, Dan. Consider joining Atheist Film & Video Artists, and posting a discussion there looking for actors. You could let the folks at Atheist Musicians know that you're looking for an original song. Good luck!
