Go Away! Religious Proselytizing

When it comes to irritants, religious recruiters rank two steps lower than telemarketers on my tolerance scale. Making assumptions about anyone’s spiritual condition is not only presumptuous, but is borderline dangerous, as proselytizers have no way of judging the mental state of those they approach. In a…

Compared to What?

The President, he's got his war, 

Folks don't know just what it's for,

Nobody gives us rhyme or reason,

Have one doubt, they call it treason,

We're chicken-feathers, all without one gut

Tryin' to make it real — compared to what?

When Les McCann and Eddie Harris…

A Church Centered Woman--RUN!

I’m a married man and have been for 31 years, but if I were of the age to be seeking a wife I know where I wouldn't be looking. From my standpoint any woman centered on the church is the kiss of death for any serious relationship. I’ve been an equal opportunity dater all of my life, but for this article my focus is…

"The Church" - We have questions - Do they have answers?

I often wonder what it would be like if every church service ended with a question and answer session.  I was invited to church one particular Sunday.  The pastor knew I was an Atheist and had prepared a sermon that thought would strike a cord with my scientific mind.   It was on Joshua 10:12-13 and how NASA scientists discovered a missing day.  I so much wanted to ask him questions right then and there during the sermon.  I produced hundreds of pages of material showing that showed this was…

Bible Bills—Insult to Injury

In the past decade more than 100 million people have left the Christian Church, but that has not stopped conservative religionist from trying to force their point of view into public schools. Since Texas passed…

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…

Mormons! I Smite Thee in the Name of Common Sense

Get a Brain Mormans Theists, I appreciate your prayers for my heathen soul, but there’s no need. Really. I’m an atheist. I’m good. And Mormons, posthumous baptism is even more than one step over the line. That’s even more unneeded, creepy, and unwanted – unless you want to modify that whole…

Pastor Mike is a Back Seat Driver

Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.

Bash atheist I'm overjoyed so many religious people are so protective of my soul that they insist upon preaching to me at every…

New Novel tackles Gay Suicide in Catholic schools! & it is awesome!

Hey folks,

This is going to be more of a review than my usual blogs that are all about me! Canadian writer Suzette Mayr just published a novel called "Monoceros." It explores the impact of a gay teen's suicide on the people in his life - people mostly peripheral to his life. It is extremely well written. In only the first 80 pages I both laughed out loud and cried - a bit problematic since I've mostly been reading it during downtime at work!  The author knows whereof she speaks,…

Mondo Diablo Episode 308: The Reformation in 20 minutes





A wondrous May Day for all of you! As you MUST know, this is the start of Beltane to end on Halloween with Samhain (SAW-Win). Whatever that means. I have an inkling, but as they say, a little too much information is a dangerous thing. Secularly, it has to do with fertility/new spring planting and ends with the harvest. Ah, the harvest. So what better way to celebrate the beginning of planting season with… Continue

Chapter One; LIVING IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD part two

Somewhere between my curious nature and my desire to interact with my environment, I looked critically at the world. So as a child, when my family went to church, I really had no idea what it was about. I liked the children sermons given at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. It was fun to go in front of the sanctuary and sit with the other kids beside the pastor, since he seemed to be the reason everyone was there.…

Cranston, Rhode Island Prayer Banner Removal sparks Religious Meltdown

Following up on a local issue here in Rhode Island that has begun to mushroom into a full fledged First Amendment battle, we return to the issue of the prayer banner that has been ignobly displayed in Cranston West High School since 1958. I first covered the story here. In the interest of full disclosure, I am proud to report that Jessica Ahlquist, who has…

Which Founding Father will the Texas Eduation Agency Axe Next?

Contrary to popular opinion I don’t hate Christians. That I am an atheist is true enough. But, just because I choose to live a life without gods does not mean that I hate those who choose to live according to the will of their imaginary friend. It’s not the Christians that I hate, but rather a large portion of their agendas that cause me to take umbrage. Think of my attitude as an atheist…

Crimes are wrong... unless they are made in the name of God, right?

(Originally posted in Su Nombre en Vano)



Don't you love it when you get to see mainstream Christian's true colors? Don't you feel good to see that those who brag about loving the neighbor are just as, or even more bigoted than the average person? Isn't it reassuring that we are in the right path?



So, some days ago, this billboard was put up:…
