This week, The Humanist posted a poll on whether we support France’s ban on women publicly wearing burqas.
Bill Maher jokingly says that Arab men keep their women in beekeper suits, but this is no joking matter. Women are silenced, made invisible daily in many parts of the world and the incursion of Muslims into Europe is bringing many unwanted traditions, such as honor killings, arranged marriage of… Continue

Have you all checked out "Awkward Moments Children's Bible" yet? It's an Amazon award-winning book and concept. No, I don't own shares of this book or are related to it's creators but I really, really LOVE the whole concept asnd I often share the illustrations on my Facebook page. I'd like to see the author put the art+verse on the backs of T-shirts (large design so easily read) as I'd proudly wear that in public to get people to think - I'd even purposedly stand in lines and position myself… Continue

A lot of you wonder how I feel about human life and when it begins. I get a lot of puzzled prayers on it. "Lord," these supplicants say. "do you really mean it when you say some four-cell blastocyst is the same as a real breathing human being like Ted Nugent or Honey Boo-Boo?"
To which I respond, Hell yeah. Life is sacred because I make it that way. All seven billion of you are made in My image, from the coldest Eskimo in Nome to the hottest stripper in…

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

I see that there is trouble afoot in India with yet another 'holy man' abusing his power.
But don't forget, it's what God does all the time. He kills, rapes, threatens, bribes, cheats, deceives and manipulates; all for his own… Continue

I've heard a lot of people say that they think rape is worse than murder. I'm not sure where I stand on this, but I have a few opinions that sway me either way.
1. You can have a good reason to kill someone, like they are trying to kill you, although this may not count a murder, since it was out of self defense.
2. There is never a good reason to rape someone.
3. After a rape, the victim is never fully healed. Rape victims often have flashbacks, memories long after the… Continue

Many people already probably know about this video by the "thoughtful atheist". I watched portions of his video because it was taken down before I saw it. It seems like he was saying that a friend of his and his wive's was getting drunk and being promiscuous. She went to a party and was followed to her apartment by a man who pushed her into her apartment and raped her. He said "Did she deserve it, no. Was she asking for it, yes." I think he was trying to say was she could have been smarter… Continue

Why are there so many Catholic priests who molest little children, especially boys, all around the world?
I'll start a list:
1. Their religion forbids them to marry or engage in sexual activity. They are to be celibate for life, or risk losing their careers and livelihood and dignity. Is this not already a sick act? It is unnatural and inhuman to forbid someone from EVER engaging in any sexual activity for fear of burning forever in hell.… Continue

Please check out my myspace page and show your support. We want to get the word out so that the godless survivors of incest, sexual assault or rape have a community to speak up with or out to. The O3 Campaign is also dedicated to publically using the word 'Atheist'. Why? Because we don't feel it to be a negative word, and the more it is used it will become a 'household' name and not be immediately… Continue

I am a sexual assault victim's advocate in Texas. The one constant that I see on a regular basis is the undying need to believe that a god has protected the victim from death, or somehow povided a cell phone to call for help. Of course when I'm at he hospital with the victim and their family, I keep quiet and remember that this is not the time or place for a theological discussion or debate. I do not participate in their prayers, but I do not act negatively to them either. Some call this… Continue

One of my friends was raped by her brother this morning. I feel pretty damn useless. I mean, right after it happened when she texted me, there was stuff I could do. Like call 911 and get them out there, contact her boyfriend, advise her not to shower or bathe till she'd had the rape kit. But there's really NOTHING I can say that will make this situation suck any less.
I remember why I wished prayer was true now. Because I wanted to have something to offer when someone was in pain I… Continue

I started out watching The Root of All Evil on youtube tonight. When I got to the part where Dawkins is witnessing a church's plans to put together a Hell House, I had to stop watching, to think. Things just hit too close to home for me. I found a documentary following the creation and execution of a hell house, and rented it to watch. It brought back some memories, things I had tried to forget. I found myself breathing with great difficulty throughout the film. (If you aren't sure what a hell… Continue
