"Great story, Drew!   I know what you mean about fearing that the religious child will inadvertently damage your child more than vice versa.  As much as religious fundamentalists like to claim persecution at the hands of a godless, secular…"

"So some fuckhead fired this cancer victim just for being an Atheist? That sounds just as pathetic as it does illegal. Sounds like discrimination to me."

Cancer Victim Fired For Being Atheist - Needs Financial Help.

Posted on May 21, 2009 at 3:26pm 0 Comments

Amanda Donaldson has been fired from her job for being an atheist; losing her medical insurance while fighting cancer. This is way more important than the usual narcisstic blogs people post here. If we can donate for atheism ads on buses, surely we can help give Amanda not only the financial help her family needs, but equally importantly the emotional support they need too. I've already donated. Surely you can afford to help a bit too? Please let me know you read, and cared. Please disseminate… Continue

Okay weekend warriors, get your pens out . . .

There are now TWO religionist replies to the letter below, which require rebuttal. I’m again asking for activist atheists and humanists to make either a quick note or a detailed critique to a letter to the editor of my local paper. Both the humanist starting point and both (off-topic) theist replies are included. I invite others to post similar letters so that others can help out. Even a short note is valuable if the editor receives several of them. Please post your letters here when you have… Continue

Newspaper Opinion Piece Requires Rebuttal - ASAP!

Posted on January 8, 2009 at 11:57am 3 Comments

Internet Infidel Activists - your help is needed!



The following amateur writer writes in my local paper. He is a home-schooled Christian fundamentalist. He gets a mention of Christianity or Jesus and a gratuitous insult at atheists and/or humanists into every column he writes. He "hates" the phrase "Happy Holidays", and does an annual "Christ in Christmas" piece. He is about 17-20 years old.



I need the help of atheists to flood my local paper with criticisms of his… Continue

Random House publishers become Jihadi lap-dogs.

Posted on August 11, 2008 at 3:20pm 4 Comments

All right.



Another company has decided to join the ranks of the jihadis.



Random House publishers have cancelled publication of Sherry Jones' novel "The Jewel of Medina", because the efforts of Muslim terrorists to force their censorship upon companies in "free" societies is succeeding.



The bottom line is that this novel is being cancelled, despite being scheduled for release, out of fear that "Muslims will be offended." "Being offended" is something that happens… Continue

Hiya Drew - I got a reply to my editorial, from the editor. She want to know what town I live in and my phone number. If I tell her the truth, she'll discard my comments, I'm sure. What do you think I should do?

Hi Drew. I don't know how I missed that e-mail address when I read your blog. Anyway, I e-mailed my own editorial and copied into your blog. I like that you do this. We need to nip this theist bullying in the bud every chance we get.

Drew, thanks for posting those items in Atheist Activism. I know you wish you had a greater response from people, but a lot of the groups on here are pretty inactive. I think people loose interest, move on, or just get busy with other things. I know the latter is the case for me, so I have not submitted any letters per your request. There is just so much out there vying for our attention, that it is hard to keep up with everything. However, I do appreciate your efforts to get us all involved. I would not give up on it though. You never know when things might change for people.
