4th of July Again a Bittersweet Holiday for Lovers of Liberty

(The following was originally submitted to the July 1-4 2008 Blogswarm against Theocracy.  I have made some additions and revisions.  Since my goal is always change in the real world, I urge you to take personal action to roll back religious bigotry and superstition.  First Freedom First is a good place to start.)

On Religious Repression

“I object to having to attend chapel 40 times before I graduate in order to earn a degree, sir.  I don’t see where the college has the right to force me to listen to a clergyman of whatever faith even once, or to listen to a Christian hymn invoking the Christian deity even once, given that I’m an atheist who is, to be truthful, deeply offended by the practices and beliefs of organized religion…I do not need the sermons of professional moralists to tell me how I should act.  I certainly…

The Ignorance of Religion

"Mystery [the divinity of Jesus Christ] is made a convenient Cover for absurdity."

John Adams

 

"Every other sect suppos[es] itself in possession of all truth, and that those who differ are so far in the wrong: like a man traveling in foggy weather, those at some distance before him he sees wrapped up in the fog, as well as those behind him, and also the people in the fields on each side, but near him all appears clear, tho' in…

Jewish Atheist takes on sacred cow -- forgiveness

The latest eruption of forgiveness worship almost made my breakfast erupt from my stomach.  Dear Abby (Keene NH Sentinel, 3/7/12) printed DECIDE TO FORGIVE in its entirety, and to give the enemy his due, I will do the same:

Decide to forgive, for resentment is negative. Resentment diminishes and devours the self. Be the first to forgive, to smile, and take the first step And you will see the happiness bloom on the face of your human brother or sister. Be always the…

“Find God’s Match for You!” ™

“I like the silent church, before the service begins, better than any preacher.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Those who love God are not always friends of their fellow-men.’

Robert Ingersoll

I am really glad I’m not a lawyer for ChristianMingle.com.  How do I even know they have lawyers?  Every company does, especially one that makes as bold a claim as this: “Find God’s Match for You”(TM).  

They’ve even…

Millions Leaving the Church, While Legislators Waste Time and Money

In the past decade more than 100 million people have left the Christian Church, but that has not stopped conservative religionist from trying to force their point of view into public schools. Since Texas passed its “prayer bill” in 2006, numerous “Bible Belt”…

Anne Graham Lotz Helping to Create a Boston Bible Party

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, took time out from her swim in the shallow end of the Graham family gene pool this weekend to assure everyone that she would NEVER vote for an Atheist.



This isn’t particularly unusual. The Graham family has a long-held antipathy toward Atheists and other minorities. Son Franklin Graham entertains rather birther-like suspicions that maybe Barack Obama isn’t a Christian.

Lies, damn lies and the people who ignore them

What do you blog about when you don’t feel like blogging and don’t have anything to say? The Bible! Nothing like a bit of Bible study to get you going right? Right.

I thought that today, I’d go back to the beginning. You know, this bit:

1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

I think even some Christians might recognize that line. It’s the first line of the Bible (the King James version anyway…). And I know…

If an atheist rewrote the Bible in the 21st century, what would it look like?

Opening Rant

First, a rave:  I am most grateful for Atheist Nexus.  Since effectively rebirthing myself as an atheist (decades ago, I was an agnostic), I've had no place to voice opinions, reactions or thoughts, where others might share them and perhaps further stretch my brain with their reflections.  Thank you, A/N.

Now, a rant:  There is little if anything more sacred to me, in all the history and legacy of the United States of America, than the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.  The most…

Pastor Mike is a Back Seat Driver

Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.

Bash atheist I'm overjoyed so many religious people are so protective of my soul that they insist upon preaching to me at every…
