Churches fight transportation fee on 1st Amendment grounds

The Alliance Defense Fund, which is known for trying to tear down the wall of separation between church and state, is now claiming that churches in one town do not have to pay a new tax because of church-state separation.

War on Christmas meets War on Terror

The "War on Christmas" has now started to overlap with the "War on Terror." A letter sent by the Tennessee branch of the ACLU reminding schools of state-church separation got them placed on a Homeland Security map as “terrorism events and other suspicious activity.”

Atheist plaque combats Christmas display in MS: is this a good thing?

Jackson, MS is the among latest cities in the news that are having illegal Christmas displays challenged. FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) has put one of their plaques in the Capitol building next to a nativity scene placed there by the Mississippi 9/11 Remembrance Association, according to WLBT. Why would a 9/11 organization put up [...]

Creationism still going strong

Check out Creation Science 101 by Roy Zimmerman For anyone still actually reading this blog after my prolonged absence, here’s some news showing that while hard-core creationism has gone down slightly, the majority of Americans think that evolution didn’t happen or that God is the one guiding evolution. From Gallup, Via The Atheist Spot Four [...]

Halloween

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Blame it mostly on work: when you work most of the year 12-14 hours a day during Monday-Thursday, and 3-6 hours a day on weekends, it doesn’t leave much time for relaxing, much less posting. I did overhear a conversation relating to religion and Halloween that [...]

Prop 8 proponents — which kind(s) of Biblical marriage do you support?

A quick follow-up to my post on Prop 8. As pointed out by in a comment by a member of Atheist Nexus, the Bible is far from supporting only what Prop 8 proponents think of as “traditional” marriage. According to the site Religious Tolerance, there are at least 8 types of marriage the Bible specifically [...]

Anne Rice loses her religion

Famous author Anne Rice has said she’s leaving Christianity, specifically the Catholic religion she converted to 12 years go after recovering from a coma. This Freethinker article discusses the decision more in detail. She was raised Catholic, abandoned it for atheism, converted back to Catholicism, and is once again renouncing her ties with the church. [...]

Christian leaders condemn overturning of Prop 8

As most people who follow the news likely know, California’s Proposition 8 (the ban against same-sex marriage in that state) was just overturned last week in federal court. There will of course be appeals, but this is a major step towards the legalization of same-sex marriage not only in California, but if it survives appeal, [...]

Love never fails [A post in memory of my mom]

A universal sentiment for atheists and believers alike. My mother died suddenly and unexpectedly last month. She died from what appears to have been a massive stroke. She had just seen a doctor, and while she had a few relatively minor health issues (as many 50-somethings do), she had just seen a doctor a few [...]

Woman sentenced to death by stoning

An Iranian woman, after already being lashed 99 times for adultery, has now been sentenced to be stoned to death. It’s hard to believe such barbaric punishment can occur in the 21st century, but Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani, who is a 42-year-old mother, has exhausted all her legal options and could be put to death any [...]

Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.

Try joining groups like the busy discussion group ORIGINS (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ).

I have been running a long discussion there about being "Proud to be Atheist" as we all should be,
seeing that we hold the intellectual high ground over the nonsense of the irrational, superstitious god believers.

"The gospel is deeply serious while Judge Walker's decision is a jumbled mess of sloppy thinking." (That's funny; I would have said the exact opposite.)

Opt-out required for school prayers? Teacher fired for a 2nd time

Posted on May 31, 2010 at 12:30pm 2 Comments

It is against both Tennessee and U.S. law to lead public school students in prayer. But some people just won't stop breaking the law and trying to find ways around it. Should students have to opt-out in order to be spared from teacher-led prayers?



According to WLBT news, "A Franklin County High School teacher was fired on Tuesday for leading her students in prayer in the classroom," At first this sounds… Continue
