Ferguson: A Larger Dialog

Ferguson, MO.



Okay, please don't roll your eyes and think "Here we ago again. Another blog about police brutality, police states in America, and racist bashing." I'm not going to be analyzing the events of Ferguson, per say. I am writing about a larger picture here. No speeches about how…

Looks like the Vatican has nun-o-phobia too.

This is America!

I don't know the ngenral opinion on the ground zero "mosque" here because I haven't been as active as I should be but I know at least 1 (thunderfoo at youtube) atheist has used the argument.



This is not Saudi Arabia this is America! The A in USA doesn't mean Arabia, it means America!

What am I talking about? Among the pathetic arguments against the "mosque" (its a cultural center you ignoramuses) the bigoted idiots spout out is "they don't allow churches in… Continue

Atheists as Outsiders

Don't know how many of you read the Friendly Atheist but a lovely piece about atheists as members of an "outsider" religious group was posted by Mike Clawson and I figured it couldn't hurt to post it other places so people could read it.…

In God We Trust Lawsuit Dismissed

Just read a passionate post by Hemant Mehta on Friendly atheist about the dismissed “In God We Trust” Lawsuit in which he makes three significant points.
  • "I’m no lawyer… but how is that phrase not an endorsement of religion over non-religion? (Not only that, you know the phrase refers to the Christian…

Vermont legislature overrides veto to legalize gay marriage

Vermont Legislature Makes Same-Sex Marriage Legal



MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Vermont Legislature on Tuesday overrode Gov. Jim Douglas’s veto of a bill allowing gay couples to marry, mustering one more vote than needed to preserve the measure.



The step makes Vermont the first state to allow same-sex marriage through legislative action instead of a court ruling. The law goes into effect… Continue

The Times of Harvey Milk

The Times of Harvey Milk is one of my favorite documentaries. It details the life of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to a major US office. Milk was a gay rights activist, a populist politician, and a great person. Even learning about him today, I can tell that he was a kind, generous man with a passion for inspiring his fellow humans. He called himself the "Mayor of Castro Street", and he was without a doubt the first person to give a voice to the many oppressed gays… Continue

The bullshit idea of a "Secular society" in America

Taken from my blog:



I hear the phrase “secular society” thrown around a lot. Usually the people I hear using it are saying it with a tone of disgust in their voice, as if the secular society was keeping their religion from breathing easy, free from scrutiny or any kind of restraints.



So what exactly is a secular society? Well when I asked google to define it, all it did… Continue

Today we vote...our founders' middle finger to religion.

As we all go stand in lines before work, grumbling but happy, sipping our coffee as we anticipate watching the returns tonight, I cannot help but think just how revolutionary this notion of government for the people, of the people and by the people is. Specifically, I cannot think of a better way to thwart religion's...specifically christianity's...desire for control.



Our founders get credited with a lot that they were not. They were not all god fearing men. They did not found our… Continue

Quotes for Americans from the Founding Fathers

America was not founded as a christian nation. I've gathered some quotes on my regular blog from several of the Founding Fathers to help fellow Americans refute that false argument.

Selected quotes are from:

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) played a major role in the American Revolution. Atheist.

John Adams (1735-1826) The second President of the United States.

Thomas Jefferson… Continue
