(Relax. The title's a joke.)
I lived in Saskatchewan for seven years during my elementary and high school days and it seemed like a fairly normal place. A little too normal - okay, maybe a little on the boring side. It certainly wasn't overrun with demons when I lived there.
Well last week a story ran about a man who carved the…Continue

I found a fake bill Bible tract last summer and blogged about it. I had it on hand and figured a Christian preacher would appreciate it.
Here's the calculus that unfolded in my mind. I figured I didn't need the bill any more and this guy was preaching to people on the street. No good…Continue
The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me. During my Catholic youth, I…Continue

Well today's Good Friday when we're all reminded by Christians about the bloody crucifixion of the almost certainly fictional Jesus Christ. So I thought I would write a seasonal piece about the topic that disregards why…Continue
Last night I went to my fridge to get some soy milk for my coffee (lactose doesn't agree with me) and I noticed a 1,000,000 dollar bill fridge-magneted to the door with all the other stuff. I had put it there last summer after I found it while walking in the park near the river at the bottom of our street. Young Christians were wandering the park with…Continue
With a groan I realized I was wrong.

A brief addendum to my previous post Creeping Canadian Theocrats (Are Creeping Me Out). Here's a rather excellent opinion piece at the Tyee:Continue
“Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are…Continue

Back in February I made the first post (Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark) of what I intend to be series on introducing different religious stories to kids and what resources are out there to help accomplish…Continue
On the heels of my previous post about the ever dwindling influence of the Church in Quebec, here's yet another possible contributing factor.
The Montreal Gazette describes a class action suit against the Catholic…Continue

"Personally, do you consider yourself to be a religious person? (Total % YES)"
This last weekend I was at the pharmacy waiting for a…Continue
To receive religious signature lines in business e-mails from third party vendors is simply so inconceivable to anyone I know at my company that when I began receiving them I had to share with my colleagues. They were just as surprised as I was.
It started out as a kind of joke, but it's starting to feel a little like work now. I thought it would be more funny but instead it's kind of sad. Well, let's take this old dog out back and finish it…Continue

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:

New blog post:
I have a 2 year old son. I'm interested in different ways of exposing him to as many religious mythologies as possible. I would love him to investigate, compare and independently ask questions about religious claims as a freethinker. First in a series.
Go here to read the rest. Thanks for coming over and reading if you do!
