The Right to be Gay.

This comes from my atheism blog on Google blogs.

"The humanity of all Americans is diminished when any group is denied rights granted to others" [Julian Bond].

What do Christians have to fear from letting gay people express their love and devotion to one another ? Nothing actually. The love two people feel for one another, the sex of two consenting adults, whether heterosexual or homosexual, does me no harm in the least. What two consenting adults feel for one…

Just Say No

Abortion, Gay Marriage & the GRA

I promised to avoid discussing these issues because I believe most Americans 

cannot intelligently discuss the topics because of prior conditioning and outright ignorance. Today the

 United States Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act a decision that mad

e some happy and upset others. The first groups to complain were church groups speaking of degrading the v

alue of marriage totally…

Marriage and the Culture Wars

We read a lot in the culture wars about marriage, like it is a concept that has been around forever and everyone knows what it is. That isn't quite true. Marriage as we know it today, is a fairly recent invention. As recently as 500 years ago, few people in Europe bothered to get married. Only the landed classes tended to formalize marriage. There are many cultures that have or had no concept of marriage. Others practiced very different forms of marriage (think Muslim and Original Mormons).…

Homophobia, Sexual Insecurity, Religion, Cliches

Any discussion about sexuality is complicated by messy overlapping categories.  Are there people who reject all homosexuality only out of religious faith?  Certainly.  Are some of them sexually uptight?  Absolutely.  However, it can equally be said that some atheists are perverts who, out of desperation or dogmatism, will have any sort of sex with anything, and have a knee-jerk sympathy for any sort of perversion. 

The marriage debate is relatively unimportant except as a distraction…

And baby came too

“Morning, Vicar. We’d like to get married. Oh, can you sprinkle the sprog with some of that holy water while you’re at it. Oh, and Grandma’s dropped dead. Perhaps you can fit in a few words over the box.



“We’ll have had hatch, match and dispatch all in one, then, ha, ha.



“Oh, can you bless our nanny goat?”



OK, bit of hyperbole. But it’s true that the Church of England is now going to allow people to get married (heterosexual couples, that is – but of course) and… Continue

Stop it already!!

I am sick and damn tired of hearing about Miss California and Perez Hilton.



No one cared or even heard about either of them before Miss USA. Why do we care now?



Prejean has a right to voice her opinion and hopefully she realizes she has to accept ANY consequences of them. Then she posed topless.. and now she's trying to say that a choice SHE made is a malicious attack for voicing her opinion. You screwed up you dumb broad.



Perez is a dumbass who thinks he is… Continue
