4th of July Again a Bittersweet Holiday for Lovers of Liberty

(The following was originally submitted to the July 1-4 2008 Blogswarm against Theocracy.  I have made some additions and revisions.  Since my goal is always change in the real world, I urge you to take personal action to roll back religious bigotry and superstition.  First Freedom First is a good place to start.)

“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good…

Few spits on how/why the rightwing (in FL USA) hates communities...

Why do the neo-capitalist (not so free world) right wingers and their imported corporations hate communities of the USA? Oh my bad, they're not profitable and the legalized gay marriage and ganja is waaaay to non-fundy xtian/muslim and or jeudeo? ~ ; P

And that crap that makes you crap would lose steam... meaning the lame über corporations feeding people garbage foods and drinks.

It's all coming to a head folks! They don't profit…

Creeping Canadian Theocrats (Are Creeping Me Out)

In my latest blog post I touch a little on the state of state-church separation here in Canada.  Also included is an introduction to the ultra-conservative bible-based Christian Heritage Party and one of their videos that infuriates me.

Thank you so much if you drop by:

Coming Soon- The American Theocracy

The move toward American Theocracy by the empowered evangelical 'elite' in the US has made it almost impossible for an atheist or difficult for a non-christian to be elected to office.  Schools are having their curriculum undermined by creationist who wish to revise history, remove evolution from science, and prevent teaching sexual health and pregnancy prevention.  Atheist fear reprisals for not being christian and are often discriminated against at work, socially, and most especially in…

no one expects the spanish inquisition!!!

not sure anyone is interested in this or not, but i stumbled across a multi-episode documentary from canada on the inquisition. it's kinda low budget, but still interesting.



the first episode is a little slow, but episode 2 and 3 are good.



it really gets me pissed off at points... torturing and killing people for nothing.

and occasionally there is a catholic priest who makes some comment like "well, we have to take these things in context of the society at that… Continue

i've started a series on early church history on youtube

it's called "shady church history" and i base it on my background in classics and early medieval history.



i haven't used my youtube channel in this way before, so i'm not sure how it's gonna be received. (probably just ignored, as there are a lot of good videos made from atheist angles out there, lol.)



anyways, i have 2 episodes finished so far. the first is an introduction to the series, the second deals with lies propagated by the church and how one in particular led to… Continue

Texas GOP: Another Step Toward Theocracy?

I am used to some closed-minded rhetoric (from both sides of the aisle, sometimes) concerning matters that I find important. It's usually one or two wing-nutty individuals like Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin who set me off, when they spout some inane statement about subjects like homosexuality or secular government. I try not to habitually make statements dismissing an entire political… Continue

A moral dilemma

Back in September of 2009 I posted a story on my frethink.com blog regarding the pending deportation of an individual to his home country, a country that still lives by social codes common to the 1st century. Had he been deported he faced execution for apostasy. Laws against apostasy (renouncing the state religion) and heresy (speaking out against the state religion) are still common in middle-Eastern countries. I wanted to highlight this story because the injustice embodied in his story needed… Continue
