"Religion is a sexually-transmitted disease" says Dr. Ray



My wife and I went to go see Dr. Darrel Ray, psychologist and author of the best-selling book The God Virus, speak yesterday in Memphis. His talk was a very thought-provoking and provocative look at how religion continues to spread despite the fact that logically, most religious belief makes very little logical sense. Ray… Continue

Any Suggestions For Some Nasty Epigrams?

This is a follow-up to my previous post on church marquee epigrams. Richard Dawkins recently initiated an anti-religious banner on a London bus, but the material was pabulum. Something like, “There might not be a God so enjoy life.”



Utterly milquetoast. Read some of the epigrams on the list that the churches post. They’re downright… Continue

Chariots of Iron

My interview on Chariots of Iron Podcast came out today. I talk about The God Virus and Recovering from Religion. Eli, Mark and Lamar really did their homework and had great questions. I think we explored the Civil Religion idea better in this forum than in any others I have done. Having three guys interview is a trip. It was more like we were all sitting around the table with a beer and having some good laughs. The interview portion is in the last half of the podcast.



Here is the… Continue

Crazy for God

I often judge a book by how much it makes me think and reflect. Frank Schaeffer's, Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back - certainly passed that test. The outdoors, mountains, adventures with firecrackers, hunting, hiking and, of course religion, all were a big part of my childhood and relationship with my father as it was for Frank. Some other similarities struck me as well. As the oldest, my mother… Continue

Dawkins on Mental Viruses

I love Dawkins video on mental viruses and have added it to my videos. If you have never seen it, take a look. It is still the best articulation of the concept that I have found.

Edwin Kagin endorsement

I am very happy to report that Edwin Kagin, National Legal Director at the American Atheist Association has written a strong endorsement for my book. Here is his quote:



"I have found The God Virus to be a most readable and important piece of work. I can happily recommend it to potential readers, particularly to those who are not overly burdened with too much formal education in the arcane aspects of theology and philosophy. Your book is, to me at least, an everyman’s explanation of… Continue
