Bible verses religious people don't mention or preach about + art for the verses

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…

Can a church accept and embrace Atheists?

I identify as Lesbian, Secular Humanist / Atheist and am an Officer of our local PFLAG support group (Parents, Family/Friends of Lesbians And Gays). I have a question about how a church sect can say they 'accept Atheists'.

In this small Arizona town, only United church of Christ (UCC) claims to be 100% Open-And-Affirming, meaning they welcome, embrace and empower ALL peoples including those of diverse sexual orientation and gender variations. UCC apparently also has the…

Dish Network forcing citizens to have Religious channels in 'packages'

I signed up for Dish Network (it's a satellite TV company) here in Yuma AZ. The new customer package was just $19.99/month and included extended Movie stations like HBO, Starz etc and entailed about 200 stations. After 3 months, "New Customer Promotions" ended & if I continued with Dish, I was forced to choose continuing that Extensive Package *at normal prices* (very co$$tly!) or choose another 'Package'. I chose the Budget Package which has about 50 stations and now costs me $40/month.…

The UBER-Conservative Christian Mormon Hypocrite President candidate will win if..........

....IF we all don't immediately and pro-actively inspire, encourage friends, relatives to REGISTER asap and to Vote! Especially young adults, students, 'minorities' and women... these demographics tend to vote progressive. But, these demographics have 'obstacles' that the Christian Millionnaires have created to deter them from registering and voting (i.e. extra ID required etc). Be a buddy and help people - drive people to get registered. Encourge them to sign-up for absentee… Continue

ADDICTS USE RELIGION TO HELP THEM STAY SOBER... THEY THEN BECOME ADDICTED TO RELIGION!

Anybody else have an substance abuse addicted friend, family member who turned to god, religion to help them stay sober? Sadly, she, like many others, 'found god' when she was her very bottom and it appears her new-found religious beliefs are helping her stay clean. I am close to her (we've weathered her hard times in the past) and in order for us to stay current with one another, we peruse our Facebook happenings. She posts daily about how god and jesus are great and how life is wonderful…

Discrimination When People Google Your Name & Find You On This Forum?

Hello, I just joined Atheist Nexus. I'm grateful to have found a safe environment of like-minded peoples :)

In this age of Internet Surfing... have any of you suffered negative effects when others 'google' your name (for whatever reason) and see that you are a member of this forum? This Yuma AZ is a good-ole-boy small town and I've already encountered bigotry from being an 'out' Lesbian. 

If anyone has experienced such, can you please suggest how one might handle…
