Better Democracy Idea.

I have been wondering for a few years now what democracy means. It seems to me that it has never really existed, in representative democracy we vote for our leaders but in-between the elections officials and intelligence agency personnel (the real policymakers) seem to do whatever they wish, including privatization of public services and therefore introducing economic competition and commission type incentives to areas that should be for the welfare of people rather than reducing people to…

Making Atheism Stand for something more than just a lack of belief?

Yes, the classical definition simply means that you don't believe in a god.

 

Here's what I would like to see for the future, though:

-activism. A striving for equality and understanding.

I grew up surrounded by racism, class-ism, ableism, sexism, sizism, homophobia and a whole lot of other -ism's that are negative, and detrimental to society, by splitting it up into "us" and "them", and a lot of these are in religion, some are outside of it, but much of it, is…

Discrimination

It is a great pity that, whereas all religious communities enjoy the pleasure of receiving insult, muslims are still bereft of this privilege.

I say that this constitutes an act of discrimination and ergo an infringement of their human rights, for all religions should be spat upon equally. As atheists, let us therefore extend our generosity to those poor deprived scions of the Great Bear.



Allah has just the same right to be considered a pig as Jehovah or,…

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…

My thoughts on Abortion

The abortion issue is one of the most loaded issues of our time, especially in America. There are two questions that generally come up when it comes to this issue. 1.) Where exactly does life begin at conception or at birth? 2.) Does a woman solely own the right to choose what is not 100% hers in creation but is 100% in her body?



Personally, I think both sides are completely untenable and illogical. If we state that a woman has no dominion over her body then no one has a right of… Continue

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

Iowa Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage



DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa's Supreme Court legalized gay marriage Friday in a unanimous and emphatic decision that makes Iowa the third state — and first in the nation's heartland — to allow same-sex couples to wed.



Iowa joins only Massachusetts and Connecticut in permitting same-sex marriage. For six months last year, California's… Continue

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:…

Um... Don't you guys have a rule about not lying?

Today I saw some lawn signs down at the local megachurch that said "Proposition 8 = Free Speech". As you should know if you're a Californian, Prop 8 seeks to make same-sex marriage illegal in California.



I'm absolutely enraged. How the fuck do these people say that they follow a religion whose 9th commandment is to not lie (or bear false witness against one's neighbor) and get away with proudly posting such blatant lies in public? It's absurd. It's obscene. Proposition 8 has… Continue
