Coming out as an Atheist to my mom.

Greetings fellow non-theists!

First thing you gotta understand about this coming out story is that BOTH of my parents are ordained Christian ministers. Second you gotta realize that I already came out to her as a bisexual, a bit before I was ready, but at least I'm out now, even though it felt wrong, because I feel more .... homosexual than bisexual, but that's beside the point.

I am friends with my mom on facebook, since she lives in a different state. And we…

The ****, Bad, and the Ugly

Picking a starting point when writing about so many despicable characters is difficult and maybe impossible, especially when the subjects normally rank among the good guys--preachers. For years preachers, ministers and pastors ranked among the most trusted individuals in the United States, but the scandal in the Catholic Church with priestly pedophiles changed much of that perception.



During that time, Protestant churches avoided that kind of unrelenting scrutiny and for a variety of… Continue

Chapter Two: ASSURANCE OF SALVATION? part four



To this statement, [Assurance of Salvation] I can already hear the devout and the faithful saying that I must not have been truly saved or filled with the spirit.  First, one cannot say that according their own belief system.  They cannot know my sincerity and willingness to know more of God.  Also, I was one of the most devout and on fire believers that one would come across.  But it will be said, never the less.

One of the main reasons that I went through the process of covering…

Senior Pastor Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church, a megachurch in Madison, today condemned President Obama on his Twitter feed for being "pro-Islam." He went on to say that he "can't imagine Christ saying one good thing about any other faith."



Without pointing out the most glaring things that are wrong with this man's statements, it should be noted that Pastor Davis was convicted of first-degree…

Love never fails [A post in memory of my mom]



A universal sentiment for atheists and believers alike.



My mother died suddenly and unexpectedly last month. She died from what appears to have been a massive stroke. She had just seen a doctor, and while she had a few relatively minor health issues (as many 50-somethings do), she had just seen a doctor… Continue

ANOTHER SINNING PASTOR

When a Christian decided to go soul fishing on the Unreasonable Faith site recently, his ignorance of the reality of non-belief and non-believers tripped him up.



Most Religionists are incredibly ignorant of what it means to be a non-believer. Fundamentalists of any brand are among the most naive in this respect. The gross inadequacy of their primary assumptions about the causes and characteristics of atheism is one of the reasons why attempts to reconvert the disillusioned faithful… Continue

The Bible vs. Love





Moral dilemmas are our gadflies, the weak spots of any philosophy, and by extension, of any religion. When one highly esteemed virtue battles with another of equal merit, reflective people the world over turn to their philosophy or faith to make peace between the two. But how would your favorite life-enhancing ethic deal with the following:

  • Does your duty to “crown & country” outweigh your…
