There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 57 countries that have banned spanking in schools and homes. Some have banned it only in schools, others both places. France was the most recent country to…Continue

I'm a newbie. In fact, I've never belonged to an online atheist group before even though I gave up on all gods many years ago. Having been raised in a radical Christian cult that operated as a closed…Continue

Only In America?

If you've never been to Spain and you like to travel, put it on your bucket list.I've been returning to Spain for twelve years, often staying for my 90-day limit on my passport. There are loads of reasons why I fell in love with Spain, but one that I often fail to remember is that  like much of Europe, Spain is far more secular than the US. That's no small accomplishment considering their crushing history with the Catholic church. Spaniards, however, aren't all that religious these days. Oh,…See More

The Business of Importing Nuns and Priests

Posted on September 18, 2017 at 7:30am 9 Comments

Most countries import goods from all over the world. We love exotic fruits that are out of season. We drive foreign cars that continually create competition for manufacturers. We wear clothing that was made by people from the other side of the planet. But did you know that nuns and priests are being imported as well?

Shocking, isn't it?

Last winter when I was in…

Charlatans and Gullibles

Posted on September 15, 2017 at 12:00pm 3 Comments

Charlatans are not a new phenomenon.

They've been around ever since humans discovered how easy it is to trick someone else into meeting their needs —  be it giving them money, service or adoration. Although scamming folks is not solely the domain of the religious nor do only the superstitious succumb to such slick dicks, the ordained charlatan is a particularly loathsome critter.…

Do We Really Learn from History?

Posted on September 7, 2017 at 3:00pm 12 Comments

I've been thinking about Spain today and an acquaintance of mine who I've known for almost 12 years. He happens to own a beautiful family run hotel with a million dollar view perched high in the mountains of southern Spain. He is old enough to remember the Franco era. For those of you who may not know, Francisco Franco was the facsist dictator of Spain who rose to power during the Spanish Civil War in 1939 until his death. After his death Spain became a democracy.…

Loren, you are another writer who inspires me to do better. writing The tone and timber of your words ring my bells. I am afraid I didn't let you know how much I enjoyed your piece about putting a warning on a hotel bible!. It inspired me to think, "Every action helps!"

Thanks for accepting, & yes lets ramp things up!

Nice to meet you, Teresa.

At times I wonder who or what (and especially WHERE!) my muse is.  I try to do a blog a month, but I missed August, mostly owing to a lack of motivation, yet I managed TWO this month, and it ain't over yet!

I do enjoy writing, quite a bit, in fact.  It's just that sometimes getting the words out can be a pain in the patoot.

Hi Teresa! A fellow Hoosier I see. Welcome to A/N. I'm guessing your website address is from the song Embraceable You . Yes? Great song, by the way. Hope you enjoy the site.

Welcome,  Teresa! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that’s on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Writing to Congress is a group to share ideas so it's easy to write or call legislators.

After you’ve searched for topics of interest in “Groups” above and in the “Forums”, don’t forget to look at Latest Activity, found along the right margin of the page .
