Comment for Joan Denoo:

Joan, I'm not too enabled with social media. I've just found your very kind Jan. 24 comments now! I'm not sure how to post in the Discussion format, but am sure could figure it out. If you have - and have read - 'Leaving Truth', then would you agree that I should post its first short essay 'A Chemical Analogy'?

Just got Leaving Truth on Kindle; can't wait to read it.

Keith, I implore you, put this in the Discussion format so we can follow the conversation. 

I read your Dedication page and am impressed by the strength of your words and clarity of purpose. May I be so bold as to copy a paragraph to this comment? 

"I agree with the baron on the changes that we would see in the world, and on understanding that their achievement will require our ‘bringing down something infinitely more vast’. This book is my attempt to put my finger on that ‘something’."

Sewell, Keith (2012-03-21). Leaving Truth (Kindle Locations 29-31). Kindle Edition.

With just a few paragraphs read, I can recommend this book to anyone interested in leaving truth.

That's a funny one Bertold!

Stumbled across an appropriate quote for this group:

Making fun of born-again Christians is like hunting dairy cows with a high powered rifle and scope.

Hello to my fellow Strong Atheists. Its been a couple of years since I dropped in to check things out here, but they've been busy ones. Sales of the book are now up to about 400, and a staunch friend has been kind enough to build me a website. I'd like to invite any here who have a few minutes to spare to come over for a look, at . I can offer as inducement only that the site is about strong and effective anti-theism. Not about bitching, but about how we could win. Don't think that possible? Come over and see....

Best regards to all,

I've been discussing a few points over the last couple of American elections with the religiously, or slightly religiously minded and I wondered what you think of them. I'm going to have to concede the point to them that the Constitution at the moment continues to trump the religious test for office that some State constitutions still carry.

One thing about the last election was the hysteria created by the media about Romney's chances. The overblowing of poll results, in fact let's face it the outright invalidity to the level of lies and propaganda, and the wretched emotions it seemed to cause to the Republican supporters.

This was followed by the secessionist cries of the extremists.

The manufactured hysteria was the first warning to me which set me thinking. Did anyone believe that the McCain/Palin ticket ever stood a chance? To the objective observer it was as if the Right had set itself to lose on purpose.

To the outside observer there had to be a reason for this, setting such weak candidates against such a media darling had to have an ulterior motive.

When they wished to impose prohibition they took down a State at a time till they had the numbers required to effect a change in the constitution, the disaffection and emotive outpourings after another snub by the votes of the American public plays right into the hands of the Christian zealots who view their way of life under threat if the country is not run by a person that claims to pray to the tooth fairy before any decisions.

The fact that some States still hold onto parts of State Constitution that demands a religious test for office is the worrying part as it remains a possible leverage to begin to shoehorn religion into public life. Indeed some are now examining the 1st Amendment and claiming it only applies to Federal legislation.

The danger doesn't seem that apparent at the moment, but I do believe it's there. The groundwork so to speak which has me wondering what there next move will be.

So just a snippet of thinking out loud, (or a heads up) just wondered if any other Atheists see a possible trend or am I being overly sensitive to a bunch of people I do not trust?

@TNT: Really? One of my wives is transgender. If this is what you learnt from your interaction with transgender people, then you have to open your eyes and ears from now on and be more receptive. Start from zero.

@ ɟǝןıx dǝʇɹɐɹ  try not to pretend to know me because you don't. My understanding of transgender people comes from real life relationships.
