A brief addendum to my previous post Creeping Canadian Theocrats (Are Creeping Me Out). Here's a rather excellent opinion piece at the Tyee:Continue

I'll start off by admitting that I don't know how "new" this trend is, hence the reason I did not give it that qualifier in my title; however, it is something that has recently begun to stand out to me.
I've noticed a disturbing trend in politics of restating or informing people that alternate opinions or concerns exist, while at the same time saying and doing absolutely nothing to actually address them.
Example: Fill out, create or sign any given petition on Whitehouse.gov…Continue

A “True” Story Posted by My Grandfather to Facebook, or What Older Generations Really Think of Young People
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's…

I posted this on my Wordpress blog. You are welcome to comment here, but I would be much more appreciative if you commented on the blog itself at Wordpress.

Besides my joys of being skeptical of religion, I get much pleasure in applying the same skepticism to politics. Both are fundamental sets of beliefs with herds trying to justify their side and win people over by using those beliefs. They both use fear of "the others" and try to make themselves superior in all ways. So, why would an atheist leave one set of beliefs and pick up another set from a political party? (One that promotes a sense of superiority of all other parties and can save the…Continue
This may be less than timely, but whatever.
How many times does Texas Gov. Perry have to be snubbed by "the Lord" before he gets it?
April 2011, Texas is starting to suffer widespread drought for which there is no impending meteorological relief. Rick Perry organizes a "prayer" holiday for rain and the drought gets worse, continuing to this very day. Any good witch doctor knows you need to see the clouds building in the west before you schedule the rain dance.…Continue
I have been, in the past, accused of endlessly whining about religion generally and Christianity specifically and not doing more about it. I respond usually that my activism has included going on marches and writing to my MP.
Here is an example of a recent exchange between me and my MP on the reform of the house of lords which proposes an increase in the religious representation and not as I would prefer the removal of this anachronistic oddity and the advance of a secular…Continue
It just gets loonier and loonier.
But hey, it's 'lection season!
House Bill 368 passed on April 7, now watch out for Senate Bill 0893. This bill is disguised as promoting critical thinking and scrutinizing scientific evidence, but in actuality is a classic creationist "Teach the Controversy" bill. Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this.
The bill, or at least I believe it to be the current version:http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/107/Bill/SB0893.pdf
