"It fits right in to claim that homosexuality is a form of "demon possession." Demons are supernatural, right. The fundamentalist right has a supernatural god. It all fits and is all out of the same magic book. "God did it" is one…"

I wrote this piece as a freelance reporter for a black magazine six years ago. It was in response to homophobia in the black community and the reaction of the black church. Although this article was aimed at a particular audience, I believe what I found can be applied to any group or ethnicity. I wrote this article…

Lewd, Licentious & Lecherous Confessions

Posted on November 16, 2014 at 8:30pm 16 Comments

Peering too closely at one's self can be harmful to the framed and mounted picture you have in your mind. Taking stock of my inventory of foibles, I found one in particular that bothered me more than I believed it should. Evidently, I am a licentious and lecherous old man formerly addicted to strip clubs. There, I've…

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!

Don,

Maybe you would be interested in my review of the Manual for Creating Atheists.

New group, in case you are interested.  I always read your thoughtful posts with great enthusiasm and interest:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

Glad to hear you are doing better. My thoughts are with you.
