Mondo Diablo Episode 315: Scaring the Hippies with John Waters





I'm back from hospital for the second time, this time, hopefully, for good. But probably not. This week, Joy Behar interviews John Waters, and I rant.

Dad is dying.

I've never been affected at all by people around me dying, but I've also never had anyone this close die. So now I'll learn how I deal with death.

 

All of the relatives are posting messages on Facebook saying "prayers coming in from here" and "more prayers coming from here." I know I shouldn't be insulted by this. He was a Christian and probably would be grateful for these (if he weren't unconscious and all), but it all just seems so silly, like they aren't taking it…

Thrown out of church this morning.

They were taking hymn requests this morning so I stood up and belted out the name of my all time favorite: "Jesus Touched Me In All The Wrong Places." Nobody seemed to remember that one :(

Discrimination at a Christian camp?

My parents help run a christian camp and my sister has been hired to be a camp counsellor this year. Today my sister confided in me that when she was hired she had to sign a contract stating she would not do a lot of things outside of camp, including having premarital sex or engaging in homosexual activities (click here and go to page 5 to see the part of the contract I am… Continue

COMMON PERCEPTIONS OF HEAVEN AND HELL

It seems that most Christian’s perception of Heaven and its location in the universe is rather clear, compared to their fix on Hell. Heaven is widely thought to be up there, in the sky somewhere – where God, Jesus, and the souls of believers float or fly around, watch over us, and eternally reside in paradise.



On the other hand, although Hell is widely believed to be this fiery, dreadful place of endless pain and suffering, somewhere down below, it doesn’t seem that anyone really… Continue

Boiling Buddha Down

As a boy I searched for truth.

!GOD! , what would you have me do?

Preston told me.

So I tried.   Tried.  Hard.

 

And that shit stopped making sense.

 

As a young man, I searched for truth.

Is there a god?

If so. Who?  And found

 

None of that shit made sense.

 

Except what Jesus taught.

That  jew boy was down.

Except for what Siddhartha taught.

That fat boy was sound.

Except…

When the philosophy undergraduates discover god...

This is my very first post on here so be very, very kind.  Maybe even sycophantic if you have it in you… ;-)

I've decided to post this in order to avoid having a drawn out and painful discussion with the original author of a Christian apology which, like arguing with a drunk teenager, is largely pointless and always entirely depressing.

The post in question was from someone called Templestream, a guy who was trolling on Atheist Revolution.  His theory was the typical drivel and…

Imagine

Partially thanks to FFRF's Freethought Radio podcast, I have Lennon's "Imagine" stuck in my head a lot these days.

 

So, I figured that was a perfect use of a free MP3 download I got from Amazon.  As I checked out the preview on the first 15 or so versions, I notice that none start with "Imagine there's no heaven."  They all start w/ "above us only sky."

 

Cowards.  :-)

Boehner: ‘A Lot’ Of Republicans Want To Force Default, Create ‘Enough Chaos’ To Pass Balanced Budget Amendment

Article from ThinkProgress



House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said today that some members of his own caucus who are refusing to agree to a compromise debt ceiling deal are hoping to unleash “chaos” and thus force the White House and Senate Democrats to make bigger concessions than they’re already offering. As many as 40 House Republicans, especially Tea Party members and…

Not again...Father guns down 6-daughters in Islamic "honor killing"

While the tragedy in Norway happened by a lone wolf - let's not forget the true horrors of Islam. Please tell me people - when does something like this happen among Christians? Let's not be politically correct in realizing the real threats facing humanity as a whole is not "Christian" or "right-wing" terror but Islamic terror...

Religious morality is less moral than any other.

Atheism has a morality far more inclusive and advanced than any theology. The arguments for being 'religious' get weaker by the day, hence the increased hate from theists I think. I wrote a bit more about it today - http://wp.me/p1u5Um-9T - and hope it helps someone make their own case for why Atheism is the more rational choice.

I just saw the movie Captain America.

just saw Captain America. It reminded me of Max Payne. I liked my own

stint in the service better. This is not a substitute for spending a few years

in the military. Everything that happens there can not be reduced to good

versus insanity. The process of human growth from inexperience is not

found in laboratory test tubes, failed scientific experiments or stoic

exploits. Good training is more than inspiration and for the most part, less

than heroic. War seems to… Continue

Young Atheist Collaborative Blog

(Also posted in Young Atheist group)



Hey there everyone!



So I’ve had an idea for a while. It’s been brewing and bubbling around in my head for a couple of weeks, and I wanted to see what you lot think about it.



There is a blog I quite enjoy called fbomb.org. It’s run by a teenage feminist called Julie, has been around for a couple of years now and has become well known in feminist circuits. The basic premise of fbomb is that it is a place for teenage feminists… Continue
