My motives for writing about religion

Started this discussion. Last reply by Greg Feb 23. 4 Replies

My motives for writing about religion occur because I see all the harm caused by self-righteousness and proselytizing religious people. Many seem to be unaware of the rackets in which they…Continue

About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

Americans Turning Away From Organized Religion in Record Numbers  

Why would anyone turn away from centuries old traditions and beliefs?

1)  Do religious beliefs held by an individual create opportunities for questioning, doubting, exploring, experimenting, inventing or do they offer feelings of discouragement, helplessness, depression,…

Hi Joan, Thanks for the info and welcoming me to the site, I changed from faith to science too, although it took me a very long time and I found it to be a very painful process to lose my faith too! I envy those who don't have to go through that process. I didn't have the internet in the Army, but I was able to go to the local book shop and read the books on western philosophy, which set me on my path to becoming a Humanist. Anyway sorry for the life story! ;)

At 5:26am on February 2, 2015, Mike Newdow said…

Joan,

There have now been three Supreme Court cases dealing with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as it pertains to federal laws. A review of the opinions show that RFRA was strongly supported by 8 of 8 justices in Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita (2005), by 9 of 9 justices in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (2014) and by 9 of 9 justices in Holt v Hobbs (2015). Thus, the time is ripe for Atheists to challenge being essentially forced to bear the message, "In God We Trust" – in violation of their religious beliefs - as the price to pay for simply choosing to carry the nation's currency in their pockets.

 

In fact, in the seven federal circuits where "In God We Trust" has yet to be litigated, challenges are now being organized to do just that. Accordingly, I am searching for individuals and organizations who wish to serve as plaintiffs and who are from those seven circuits (i.e., who are from Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia or Wisconsin). If you or anyone you know would like to participate, please email contact information – including city and state of residence - to NoMoreIGWT@gmail.com as soon as possible.

 

Because the Supreme Court has indicated that it is more concerned about constitutional guarantees when children are involved, those who wish to protect their children from the government’s religious transgressions are especially encouraged to write. Please be assured that we will move for a court orders to keep the names of families with children under seal. (To date, those motions have always been granted, and – as far as I know – the families’ names have always remained undisclosed.)

 

Thank you.

 

- Mike 

 

PS - Please pass this on to any others who you think might have an interest. Thanks, again.

Joan, I'm so looking forward to finding a publisher for THE LOST WORLD. It is written in diary format, chapter by chapter reporting the discoveries of the day and giving away my thinking and consequent excitements. The other books are being prepared more like standard textbooks--as they need to be. All the best to you, Terry.
