Homosexuals: What Do You Really Know? (Part 12-13 in 14 Part Series)

Part 12

And Then, There's the Bible

Homosexuality has been condemned by religious leaders for centuries. For many, homophobia is a prejudice largely created and sustained by the scriptures of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Citing the Bible as the ultimate proof-source, many may find that it is not as clear as one might think on the subject.

Essentially, there are seven biblical passages cited by Christians to…

Book Review of "All God's Mistakes"

"All God's Mistakes" by Charles L. Bosk, is an interesting read if for no other reason than the book's title. The book is a piece of research dealing with birth anomalies from the stand point of the bearer of bad news. Speaking of his research, Bosk details the often difficult decisions that confront parents of…

Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa (Book Review)

I Read “Out of America " when it was published several years ago, but I felt it was time to bring it out of the closet with the human rights problems currently going on around the world to show that this phase is nothing new and represents a part of Africa most African-Americans know nothing about or try hard to…

Fun With the Book of Revelation

< Writers of the new testament 4+1 gospels (includes Acts) cribbed liberally from the OT, especially Isaiah. >>>

And where does The Book of Revelation fit in?  After all, it’s St. John the Divine’s bad LSD trip.  There has to be something sacred about that.

Aside:  How the heck do you get a name like St. John the Divine?  Do you think he called himself John the Divine?  He was a prisoner/slave working in the quarries on a remote Roman possession…

The Answer is Never Magic: Book Review

I just finished reading The Answer is Never Magic by Robert S. Porter and found it interesting. It is written as a continual conversation between an atheist and a variety of theists that seeks to examine subjects like faith, forgiveness and punishment by a forgiving God.…

Yes It Is a Cheap Shot . . .

. . . b ut someone has to take it and it might as well be me. As a writer and sometimes humorist I could be banned for life from the Writer’s Guild for not picking the low fruit. I ran upon this large sign in Barnes & Noble while book shopping.

I stood there for a moment and thought,…

I Smell Crapweasles

Proving the Poobah’s posts are prescient, it’s seems the threat to smite the Mormons over posthumous baptisms caused them to collapse into mint jelly and quash the practice.

Maybe.

After the recent string of religious recycling, the…

Book Review—The Only Prayer I'll Ever Pray: Let My People Go

By Don R Barbera, 4/8/2011

 

For an atheist to get through to nearly any Christian requires the moon to be in the seventh house and the alignment of Jupiter and Mars, but if there is anything that might give some cause to think; it is Donald R. Wright's book "The Only Prayer I'll Ever Pray: Let My People Go." Part autobiography, part expose, "The Only Prayer I'll Ever Pray: Let My People Go," is a book about the author's search for truth and enlightenment in the Bible…

Chapter Eight; SPORTS AND RELIGIONSpart thirty-one





This section is not the review of how so many sports heroes choose to solicit God's favor on their athletic endeavors but how who or what sports you choose to support has much to do with the same processes that one will select their religion. There has been many books and articles about that phenomenon. What I am referring to is the phenomenon of how who and what sport…

At Least 135,211 People Adknowledge Evolution

Just something I found interesting. Many people who can go online have a Facebook account so *if what most people say is true in anyway then* it's a pretty accurate site to create public polls that will have realistic results. This morning I came across a Facebook Group whose aim was "We Can Find 1,000,000 People Who DO Believe In Evolution Before June" thanks to a friend suggesting it to me.… Continue

A Fair and Balanced look at Armageddon.

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.

By Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

With so many one-sided versions of pre-creation, creation, the original schism and the on-going fight for human souls that is to end with the battle for the title of ... Ruuuler - of the Earth; it is refreshing to read a story that takes both sides into account. We are given this unique perspective through the eyes of two agents from opposing regimes stationed on earth with… Continue

I'm stuck!

So, we're reading Susan Jacoby's book on American Secularism in my book club. We started to discuss it last week, but mostly wandered around during the discussion on other topics related to atheism. It was a serious and very productive beginning discussion, but we didn't spend much actual time discussing the basis of American secularism or much that was in the book (it didn't help that most of us hadn't finished it, but it was announced on short notice) (not that I mind that, we still had, I… Continue
