Chapter Two; MY MORMON MISSION part five

When I recently visited a Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints in Ponca City, Oklahoma, this was shown not to be the case. To give a little background, before I proceed, would be helpful. While I was serving in the Army, one of my roommate’s was a Mormon from Idaho. I think our commanding Sargent thought it would be a “good” idea to put the more outspoken religious believers together to make sure they wouldn't mess with the men that wanted to go out, party and have girlfriends, while…

"God In Chaos" Chapter Eight; HUMANIST POINT OF VIEW part thirty



But as I have said before, since non-adherents do not have a dogma we really have no need to meet together or organize. But I have a feeling

that will change as we fight through the courts to return our nation to

the secular nation that it was founded as. People seem to be tiring of

the rules and control of dogma and want to be good peaceful people

living with one another. Helping out where we can and staying out of the

way when we…

Chapter Eight; SUNDAY GO TO MEETING part twenty-eight







On any given Sunday morning driving around in America presents a strange occurrence. It is the furthest divergence of the two groups

ideologically wish to have to do with each other. The faithful adherents

make their way through various traditions of attendance to their place

of worship. They are the ones that populate the early morning traffic on

Sunday mornings. The…

Amazing day

Recovering from Religion got its first print media exposure in the Kansas City Star. They did a very good article on us, balanced and fair and put it in the "Faith" section. Here is the link:

New York City book tour

Wow, Saturday night was a real trip. John Broughton, leader of the New York City Philosophy club and I debated the merits of the God Virus model of religion. It was a lively exchange and the audience was very involved, asking great questions and challenging John and I on a number of fronts. I would have to say it was one of the more fun things I have done lately. John was well prepared and had read The God Virus three times or more. I was impressed with his insights and challenges. The format… Continue

NYC Atheists

Had a great group to speak to at NYC Atheists last night. Totally full room - no empty seats. This was a very curious group with lots of good questions at the end. We also announce Recovering from Religion and got some very quick response from people. There has been an effort to help people recover from religion her in NYC but they want to join their group with RR. As a result I am doing some video question/answer for them today and tomorrow some TV footage as well. It will be good to get some… Continue

Stay Classy Juanell Garrett

You know what makes me mad? I know; there's a lot of things that make me upset. But one of the things that has the potential to send me to a fiery tirade is when people >cough, Christians, cough< feel the need to point out that we are a Christian nation founded by Christians. OK first, one needs to describe "founded" and "nation". Are you talking about when the pilgrims came to America to set up shop? Are you talking about Chris and his three boats in the Caribbean? Or are you speaking of… Continue
