Okay, so Katie Holmes probably isn't a fanatic like her husband, but since the beginning of Scientology in 1956 which religion -percentage wise due to there being many more catholics- is the most morally objectionable and which one is most likely to screw with your head?

Recently, a co-worker gave me a set of religious CDs on the topic of sin and morals. She is trying to convert me, and while that's never going to happen until she can prove there is a god, it gives me an excellent opportunity to check out the materials that Christians think are important in the discussion of religion. After listening to these CDs, I walked away with one truly over-powering observation:
Every shred of Christian morality are essentially Humanist concepts wrapped in… Continue

Seriously, that the Vatican wouldn’t want to cooperate with investigations regarding sex abuse is no news. But the Wikileaks cables are one of the most concrete pieces of evidence (perhaps the most concrete) that we have about the Vatican’s hypocrisy and how unwilling Ratzinger and his minions are to… Continue

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS!! I NEED FEEDBACK ON MY ATHEIST MEMOIRE IN PROGRESS!!
From time to time memories of my former life as a Protestant Christian come back. Some of them are pleasant, some unpleasant, others simply perplexing.
There is one that came to mind today that is still perplexing to this day.
Years ago, I had decided to confirm myself into the church, ironically, this was only a year before my dramatic… Continue

In The Name Of the Whip, and of the Flail and of the ...OUCH THAT HURT!
Can it really be said that one who locks himself away in a room, takes a whip or a flail that he has hanging in his closet, kneels or sits and begins beating himself is psychologically healthy? Is it not a sign of distress? Would it not be thought of as a 'cry for help', if you will allow me the cliche, to cause your self physical harm because of an… Continue

Had a hugely successful event at Reed college tonight. Leslie of the Reed Student Secular Humanists and Kurt of CFI Portland did an incredible job of publicizing the event and 160 people showed up. I was surprised at the number of recovering Catholics and Jews in the audience - or at least the number who spoke about it or mentioned it. It looks like we will get an RR group going in Portand soon. 7 people stayed after the talk to discuss how to get a group started.

Taken from my blog
Later this week my religion class is going to be "debating" whether or not Jesus was born of a virgin. I of course am going to say he wasn't, and as practice thought I'd run through my reasons here.
What I think it comes down to is probability. Which is a more probable explanation for crop circles?
A) Aliens with super advanced technology that allows them to travel MILLIONS of light years… Continue

I have heard of American companies being allowed to employ only those staff that are Christian, but this story reported by David Marr on Vinnies in Queensland has me taken aback.
I have had dealings with St Vincent de Paul and like all church organisations there is a bit of infighting however…
In January 2004 an ultimatum was delivered by the society’s diocesan president for Gold Coast, Peter Richards. [Linda Walsh] had until June to become a Catholic, resign her… Continue

Hey everyone! How are you!?
Well, I survived my company. Barely. It was a near thing. They are expecting to return for xmas and have xmas dinner at my house.
I'm more than willing to take ideas for how to tell them they can't use our house as a hotel whenever they like. They are catholics. They are the most wasteful, vain, shallow people. They are selfish and self centered. And if they come to visit for the holidays, I think I will go ballistic.
Any suggestions? Please… Continue
