Someone Mentioned The Salvation Army

I've had it in for the Salvation Army for years now. When I first moved to Seattle I had a job cleaning their head quarters. Cleaning jobs can be degrading at times, not so much from the work itself but the way in which people that have jobs in the same building tend to treat you. The woman in charge of that building made me feel as if I were Cinderella working for my freakin' wicked Step-Mother. Every morning she'd come in after we'd cleaned and if she found a single tissue in the bathroom… Continue

Washington State

Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places. I just can't seem to find any local atheist groups that focus on doing charitable work or supporting equality in my community. Another poster pointed out that among the 200 organizations that recently supported Washington Families Standing Together, a group that campaigned to protect domestic partnerships in my state, there wasn't a single organization of non-believers on the… Continue

Day 1 in my US History Class or More Crap we can thank the Christians for...

I started my U.S. History class today. I was a bit surprised to see that the first chapter has more of a focus on the Native American-African-European dynamic than I've come across before.



It also touches upon how religion was such a destructive force in Native-European relations. This quote particularly struck me "throughout Europe...freedom meant abandoning the life of sin to embrace the teachings of Christ. 'Where the Spirit of the Lord is,' declares the New Testament, 'there is… Continue

Help!

I'm taking a creative writing class this quarter. Our first assignment is to create a character adn a setting that we will use in the rest of our assignments. Both have to be contemporary, and we're forbidden from creating sci-fi/fantasy style characters/settings. :(



I'm less disappointed by this than I thought I would be, but I'm not quite sure what exactly I want to go with. I think I have it boiled down to a few different alternatives: a teen-aged non-believer living with… Continue

I almost forgot

As I scramble to get last minute expenses taken care of before the start of this quarter I remember an important aspect to student life....weekly visits to the food bank. Maybe in a couple more years I'll be better at being a poor person. Were I to be symbolized by an animal I'm not sure which would be appropriate.

Family: A Rant

The night we returned from Texas I opened an email from my mother. She and my father divorced just about 20 years ago. She's in the middle of a move that signifies a change in her life, so she was going through old photographs, reflecting on the family she had, what was lost and some of her regrets. This turned into a long heartfelt letter to my father. I didn't read it but she gave me enough info to get the jist of it. Basically she on some level regrets the divorce and the path she has been… Continue

My thoughts on the 9 Principles and 12 Values

Below are Beck’s Nine Principles he wants you to agree on:



1. America is good.



Depends on the circumstances. It can be good but it also has the potential to be very very bad. Freedom of speech = good. Trapping civilians in Sadr city before bombing the crap out of it = bad.



2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.<----- All thought ends here, I guess.



3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was… Continue

U.N. Anti-Blasphemy Resolution



Via Atheist Media Blog



The fact that these people are pushing so hard to shut the rest of us up, makes me suspect that they know they are in the wrong. Sorry guys if you want to worship a pedophile, brain wash kids into becoming suicide bombers, and treat women like property, I will criticize you and I don't care whether or not it hurts your… Continue

Protest Faith-based Offices!

I've been anticipating this for awhile now. It seems that the Pesident plans to keep his promises, but this is one promise we can't afford to let him keep, not without a fight. We need compassion not religion to help the needy. We recieved the following email from the FFRF earlier today. :



FFRF ACTION ALERT! URGENT!

We Need Your Help! Protest Faith-based Offices!



Dear FFRF Member:

The White House needs to hears an immediate outcry over last week's announcement… Continue

Blah Blah Blah

Accepting my place in society is something I have never been comfortable wit h. I've always been too fiercely independent. If it weren't so necessary for my survival I wouldn't conform nearly as much as I do. I'd rather be left to be me alone in my apartment a creature that only emerges when the mood presents itself. I don't like having to suck it up and pretend to be semi normal just to get through the day. I just want to look like me, and act like me but lets face it I'm not what most people… Continue

Focus on the Family

Well, I finally got some sort of response from these guys. I must admit they're a bit slower on the automated responses than some other people I can think of:

"Recently you submitted a question or comment to Focus on the Family. Please know that we are currently experiencing higher than expected volumes of e-mail. Should your situation require a response, we ask that you please allow a few additional days for handling. We appreciate your patience."
