The Civil Atheist - Theist Discussion: How to Get There

In my last blog entry, I reported on what I thought was a rather extraordinary event: a YouTube discussion between Dr. Michael Jones, his wife, both theists, and Atheist Nexus member Steve Shives, along with a number of both theist and atheist participants, in what was entirely a calm, civil and downright amiable discussion on topics regarding both belief and the lack thereof.  Steve certainly seemed to think that both the discussion and its contributors were notable as well, as he gave a…

My petition to the White House to acknowledge the nones | notes

I was incensed. There it was in the Washington Post, President Obama's campaign adviser casually acknowledging that he did not view the group collectively known as "nones" as a constituency.

This egregious statement is on a par with Mr. Romney's 47% remark. It simply sweeps us under the rug. He says we do not matter.

We do not matter even though an overwhelming majority of nones voted for the President's re-election; figures as high as 87% have been floated in…

Is there something wrong with people who do not use Facebook? Hardly!

Recent news stories have suggested that employers may be reluctant to hire people without a Facebook profile on the grounds that Facebook usage has become so common that not having an account is seen as somehow abnormal. This concern appears to have been compounded by a lurid report in a German…

“Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are…

Voting Booth Unfairness

Did you know I still have to vote at a Church?  Also if I want to vote absentee I must answer why I need to vote absentee.  It should be a law that you cannot ask personal business of why you choose to vote absentee and no one should be forced to vote in a church.  I would like to  know if you can vote absentee with out having to provide a reason.

Don't Ask Don't Tell

Will this law be changed soon? If it does what do you predict it will change in the way people vote on other issues?

How much protection is there for your civil rights.

Here is the enigma I am going through at the moment. There may or may not be civil rights for you. If there is civil rights the government recognizes you deserve protection by the laws of its nation. If there is not laws made for your civil rights where you live then you don't live in a government that offers you protection. Even if there is laws made for your civil rights there are many examples of pain or death inflicted on people because of who you are or what you believe. How much tax money… Continue

Separate still not equal: Why gays need to call it marriage

Is the Bible free speech?

Not when you preach in a public school. Unless this guy wins his lawsuit.

Protecting Marriage

Protecting Marriage

The 2008 Republican Platform lays out the party's ideas of what constitutes a "real family." Unfortunately, many real families don't fall within the Republicans' idea of what a family ought to be, and therefore the Republican party labels these family as a threat to "traditional marriage." Here's an excerpt from the official 2008 Republican Platform regarding this issue:…
