Leaving Jesus: Women of Color Beyond Faith

From The Feminist Wire By Sikivu HutchinsonThe 24-hour prayer sessions are the true test of a warrior for Jesus.  They require Herculean stamina, the patience of Job, the rigor of elite marathon runners hitting the wall in a fiery sweat pit at high altitude, primed for God’s finish line. In many small storefront Pentecostal churches these “pray-a-thons” are women’s spaces; hubs of music,…See More

"Sorry about your friend. Love his quote! May I copy that? My sister ambush-prayed over an atheist friend of ours once. He was dying of cancer and didn't know we were there, so I let it go. Won't happen again, though."

Death of an Atheist Friend: Let the Faith Pimping Begin

By Sikivu Hutchinson The American death industry pimps heaven hard, squeals like a stuck pig about redemption, then tasks the faithful with collecting the bloody dividends.  For the believer the death of an atheist or agnostic loved one is a theological crap shoot.  It invariably inspires fantasy, creative license, and outright bullshit betrayal of the dearly departed’s principles.  Such was the case with my friend “Miguel”, who tragically collapsed during a basketball game at his school, went…See More

Prayer Warriors and Freethinkers (on the Texas Freethought Con)

Posted on November 14, 2011 at 4:35pm 5 Comments

By Sikivu Hutchinson

From The New Humanism

The prayer warriors have descended on the Crenshaw parking lot in South L.A. The first sentry, a slight man in athletic shorts, weaves through the parked cars on an old Schwinn. He flags down the driver of a T-Bird. They exchange quick greetings then bow their heads and join hands, oblivious, for the moment,…

Yes we are trying our best and i am optimistic we shall succeed in having a secular Uganda, in our activities at KUHA we avoid confrontations with religions but try and do good by being tolerant to them but explaining the usefulness of being an Atheist

It took me 51 years to shed the weight of religion. I feel better physically and mentally. What is an additional inspiration is to find a segment of people in our community who are critical thinkers and non-believers. I am so glad to be out of the "Amen & Hallelujah!" corner. Pura Vida (Pure Life) from this point on!

Hey Sikivu,

Thank you for the reply,

I am going to Nova Southeastern University. At first, I was thinking about education either. However, I realized that no matter what, you end up teaching. Second, the reason why people are so ignorant/ intolerant of folks who are freethinkers, humanists or atheists is because they're ignorant or uneducated. Lastly, I noticed the declining numbers of males especially Blacks and Hispanics that are not being educated and I knew I had to do something about it. So, I feel like it is a necessity that I got involved. Besides, it will make me a better writer for my position as a Black Queer Atheist.

I have read your current blogs and you are on fire. I wanted to also inform you that I got into an EdD program. Your scholarship and critical analysis are an inspiration.

It certainly is important!

I just wanted to stop by and tell you that GOD... No, (LOL) but you ARE an inspiration to me. I have been a free thinker for quite a while, but I had yet to be very open about it, until about a week ago. I recently put my name and posted my picture on this website. It's all because of people like you out there blazing a trail that we hidden black free thinkers can join you on! Thanks!

You're quite welcome sister. I have an extensive jazz and classical flute collection, so if you ever need a recommendation I'll be more than happy to try to accommodate your request. I finally met and played a duet with Hubert Laws at the National Flute Convention in August of 2009....I snuck up behind him while he was signing autographs and played his version of "Amazing Grace" note for note. He immediately picked up his flute and we kept jammin'. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I was a non believer!
