Parents

Sorry, have not been on here in while, and this one will be a quick one.  I was recently visiting with my very religious dad. We had dinner and he, of course, said grace. Well he was anoyed that no one "echoed" when he said "amen." Made me think, dang, he is going to figure me out soon.  So far i have been trying to come off as just lazy or just mildly jaded when it comes to church, but i'm sure if he knew about the secret stash of Dawkins books hidden in my room, the poor old dude would…

Ignorant Zealots

Facebook, oh that terrible double- edged sword! On the one hand, full of photos of my cousins' kids, a spot where i can check in on my friends from other cities or even countries without a long distance phone call and of course the cat videos... I admit it, I love the cat videos! But there is a darker side... the constant religious posts!

Religious music in secular settings

This post is maybe a bit more thought out than my last one:

There have been a few occasions of late when i was in a business and the music selected by the staff was a bit abrasive.

New to this, but what the hell!

Hello, forgive my fumbling. I am so not a blogger, but i figured now is as good a time as any to begin. I have no idea if anyone will read this, but i am very used to talking to myself! I really don't have much to say at this time so i am just kind of going off the cuff.
