Is it re-education if you are having to unlearn the bad first?

So my christmas went okay except for two women losing their minds:

My grandmother and my boyfriend's "memaw". My grandmother threw a fit because I went to spend Christmas with the boyfriend, instead of "with the family". Before I left, she kept picking arguements with my mother and egging her on by talking about how she wish she could see "her family".

The same family that left her nearly blind, starving, and not very clean.

It's upsetting how what me and my mom…

A New Rant

I read online last night that yet another school student has tragically ended her life because of bullying.  Stories like these always hurt me because I had a friend who took his own like because of bullying.  That's why I thnk that when children commit suicide because of bullying, the bullies should be held responsible.  What about you?  Do you feel the same?

These 9/11 conspiracy videos are worth a look, "but don't take my word for it..."

Let me first say that until this year, I fully beleived that 9/11 was the work of al-Qaeda and Bin Laden...because I had never bothered to look at any of the conspiracy theories. This year, I finally got curious as to why people were still going on about the attacks being a government job, so I spent a few days looking up videos and reviews. Quite a few of them were sketchy and I was able to dismiss the claims because I could conceive of alternative possibilities to many of the allegations.…

Lunch with an Atheist! DA DAAAAAA!!!

Had a chat at lunch today. With my girlfriend who is my partner (we live together). She’s an atheist too….so I havent had to deal with any problems there. We talked about what people might think or say about us (especially here) and we also talked about people’s sexual preferences and how that is more accepted here than letting others know that you do not believe in God. Someone she knows is gay and is still somewhat “in the closet” and yet travels miles to be with someone. And it…

scary thought-- Mitt Romney as president. Oh no, please no!

  I'm sure that most of us in the nontheist community back president Barak Obama for a second term, especially at a time in our history when the opposition bends over backwards for those religous nuts, othewise known as christians. Can you imagine what our friends in the rational thinking spheres of Western Civilization would think, if this nation elected a fucking mormon? After Bush stole that first election, I often lose sleep thinking of such a national nightmare. It's bad enough the…

On "Coming Out" as an ATHEIST....

I am 45 years old. I live in what has been called “The Buckle of The Bible Belt”. Well, maybe that was true at one time…back when black and whites had separate drinking fountains and buses and schools and women all stayed at home…barefoot and pregnant and homosexuals were considered mentally ill “sodomites”. But…now…in the early part of the 21st century….more people are coming out of their “closets” and apparently(and fortunately) the “Bible Belt” is worn out and is about to “break”.…

WHAT MATTERS MOST

I would like to start this year off by asking everyone..."what matters most" to YOU?

 

A little while ago, I read an old book by Hyrum W. Smith, the co-founder of Franklin Covey. That book was titled..."What Matters Most". Among other great points in the book, Mr Smith explained, that there just wasn't enough time in one day, to do all the things, that we "say" we want to do, each day.

 

Take emails. We receive hundreds of…

Disappointed by Newt Gingrich

Happy New Year- United Under One wishes all of you a happy and healthy 2012. 

As this new year begins and the 2012 election is coming up, I decided to educate myself about our candidates so that I can be an educated voter next fall.  I just finished the book "Winning the Future" by Newt Gingrich which convinced me that any hope I had for him becoming a strong candidate was just that, a hope.  In his book, Mr. Gingrich expressed his thoughts on politics and religion, and those were,…

My intuitions of the Black Community

I have had many friends who also happen to be black. When I interacted with them, there was never a feeling of me against him/her. I never had a racist thought let alone a racist agenda. I never felt that there wasn't a "we" when I was with them. I am about in the middle of this video: Dialogue of Reason: Science and Faith in the Black Community. So far in this video, I noticed the blacks in this video using separatist language like "my brothers and sisters" and "African…

Thrown out of church today.

The pastor asked me what I did last night on New Year's Eve. I told him that I have no idea what I did last night because I was more fucked up than a child coming out of Vacation Bible School.

Obama signs the NDAA and ends American Democracy: RIP America (1776-2011)

I had such high hopes for this man when I voted for him. I was so tired of seeing white men in office, even being white myself, that I wanted him to show people that they needn't conform to societal stereotypes. But he was a Trojan horse, and has now done more harm to this country than anyone President before him. I can no longer call him my president, as he has sold me into bondage. He has transformed the home of the free into a military dictatorship. It is now perfectly legal for him to…

A Humanist Grace

According to Webster there are no fewer than eight (8) definitions for 'grace'.  The one I'd like to focus on is:

a short prayer at a meal asking a blessing or giving thanks

Christmas celebrations are over and the new year is here. For the most part I enjoy the holidays.  I like the coloured lights, the songs, the Christmas television specials and even getting together with the family.  The part…
