Anselm (of Canterbury) & Thomas Aquinas, Now Just Amusing Naive Loonies?

Catholics and some Protestant Christian groups still quote and stand by the writings of these two , who were once considered wise men, but forget that in worldly knowledge and rationality, they can be beaten now by the average intelligent ten year old, in both knowledge and wisdom.

For Thomas Aquinas:

Speechwriting for the Pope: Suggested Draft, Farewell Remarks

“The philosophy of Atheism represents a concept of life without any metaphysical Beyond or Divine Regulator. It is the concept of an actual real, world with its liberating, expanding and beautifying possibilities, against an unreal world, which, with its spirits, oracles, and mean contentment has kept humanity in helpless degradation.”

Emma Goldman

 

On the occasion of the Pope’s retirement, I provide at no charge the valedictory remarks I know he would…

The Battle for Zachary’s Brain IV: Hell

‘The atheist, by merely being in touch with reality, appears shamefully out of touch with the fantasy life of his neighbors.”

Sam Harris

Catholic Katie Holmes divorces Scientologist Tom Cruise, but which religion is worst by todays standards?

Okay, so Katie Holmes probably isn't a fanatic like her husband, but since the beginning of Scientology in 1956 which religion -percentage wise due to there being many more catholics- is the most morally objectionable and which one is most likely to screw with your head?

Mom, I'm an Atheist OR Mom, Your Grandchildren are Catholic

What a year I've had!



After having dealt with my wife becoming Catholic (with my blessing) and currently taking part in a community theater production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, my children (ages 8,5, and 11 mo) were baptized into the Roman Catholic Church.



My wife realizes how difficult this is for me. After all, she is one of a handful… Continue

Rob and Mother Bernadette Mary

Here's a new post from my blog, AMW's World of Fame, Shame, and Getting in the Game:

 

My iPod seemed to be making a point of shuffling songs by Sinéad O’Connor into my ears the other day as I took my hour-long walk around the high school track. Earlier, a friend on Facebook had mentioned O’Connor in a status update. So I got to thinking about Sinéad and her hardly typical career as a singer and songwriter.

The Catholic Wedding: An Atheist Reports

Recently I attended what many consider the height of all frivolous fancy: the Northeastern wedding. Northeastern Catholic wedding, to be exact. Shrouded in tacky elegance, this occasion is oft-profiled on shows like Platinum Weddings and Bridezilla. Most of this entry will be discussing my reaction to the “Catholic”-ness of it all, while some will just be discussing the “Northeastern”-ness of it all, and the rest just the event itself.



To start- this wedding took place at Convent… Continue
