Fashion victims for Jesus

Have you seen this?



NOTW



I keep seeing it on bumper stickers and t-shirts, so I thought I’d Google it.

It seems to stand for “Not of This World” and is a xtian clothing line.

Check this crap out:

Again, it’s the religious conservatives trying to shove the same old ancient bullshit down kids’ throats by marketing in a super hip and edgy way. Just like Stryper, just like POD, and just like all those neon bumper… Continue

Like, what's you sign, man?

Lately, I’ve been involved in many discussions about astrology. It just keeps popping up almost daily. In these discussions I am alone on the side where astrology is bullshit. I am viewed as a total party pooper. I am a very social person and love to meet and talk with strangers at parties and bars. Funny thing is, it seems when I am introduced to a new person and strike up a friendly conversation, in the first 5 minutes I am asked “What’s you sign?” I tell them jokingly, “next window please.”… Continue

Idol Worship

I watch American Idol. Sorry. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. Go ahead and judge……



So last night was Grand Ole Opry night and all contestants were required to sing country songs, regardless of their own musical style. One guy did a Carrie Underwood song. Country is not my preference and I have never heard a Carrie Underwood song in my life, until last night. It was a song called “Jesus take the wheel” and it was one of the most irresponsible songs I’ve ever heard. I was so annoyed… Continue

Bill Maher, The Oscars......anyone?

I’m surprised I haven’t seen any comments here about Bill’s godless 2 cents at the Oscars. It was great, except for the silence that fell on the crowd after his shout out, aside from a few crickets chirping in the distance. Even liberal Hollywood, who cheered for the Milk acceptance speeches and the anti-prop 8 statements, didn’t seem to back Bill’s jokes. How come when the religious demonize homosexuals it starts a heated debate, but when someone calls out religion, everybody clams up and… Continue

Gesundheit

I suffer from a chronic sinus condition. I have had it since childhood and have just learned to live with it, to the point where I hardly notice. My nose is always stuffed, not due to any allergy per se, but I think it may call for some sort of surgical procedure. I know I should look into it, but money seems to be the problem and the current state of our health care system is…..blah, blah.....not the point of this blog…..



Here’s the real issue:



I work around many people… Continue

a little rant about something on my mind

I was helping my friend with a video art project this last weekend. She had been tediously planning this for weeks and had spent much time, money and effort preparing. For this shoot, we rented some gear from a local production house here in LA- a camera, monitor, lights and the various cords that connect everything- the works. During set up of all this gear, my friend could not seem to find an essential cord. She started panicking and appeared to be approaching tears while looking for the… Continue

not so surprised....

I was very excited yesterday, as we all were, it seems, when President Obama mentioned “non-believers” when he listed different types of belief systems that Americans hold. I say excited, but not surprised. I have held a close ear to Obama’s speeches, as he has been campaigning for almost 2 years for the presidency. I have been very aware of the lack of religiosity in his speeches. Yeah, he quotes the odd bible verse every so often, but it’s always relevant to a common moral lesson he is making… Continue

gimme a G!

The following has been a topic of conversation that has come up several times with me, and my fellow atheist friends recently. The capitalization of God/god. Being an atheist of the angry variety, who is disgusted by all that is holy, I struggle with this decision frequently. Of course, capitalizing God makes me feel as if too much importance is being placed on this nonexistent, society ruining entity. BUT God is a proper noun. Proper nouns call for capitalization. Not only am I passionate… Continue

new and confused

Ok, so I'm new to this site, about 2 days now, and I have just noticed something a bit disturbing....



If you scroll down and look to the right hand side of your screen you will see the column called "bill payers" (I'm seeing this, anyway). In this column are paid ads posted by Google. There's one called Jesus 2020. I clicked on it and it took me to a site that wanted me to say Jesus died for my sins. There are others that are urging me to pray. WTF??? I came to this site to get away… Continue
