Suffer the Children

The general assumption is that an adult is capable of making their own decisions regarding how their life is conducted, what preferences they hold and what choices they make. An adult might be politically conservative or liberal, a meat eater or vegan. They might like action/adventure movies or opt for more cerebral fare at the cinema. Curry might be their preference over Mexican, or vice versa, or they may be equally enthusiastic about both. Regardless, their choices are or certainly should…

Spotlight – A Cinematic Indictment of the Catholic Church

Once again, I have to thank Sunday morning television for informing me of an important and noteworthy event. In this case, the information came in the form of a 30-second commercial, not just about a film but yet another salvo against the catholic church and the pedophile priest scandal: Spotlight. This docudrama purports to tell the story of how the Boston Globe newspaper staff researched and revealed the massive child abuse…

The Battered Child Syndrome, Kempe, Silverman, Steele, Droegemueller, Silver, JAMA 1962

In 1953, Frederic Silverman, a radiologist, noticed children coming into his radiology clinic with chillingly frequent X-ray images of multiple fractures. "The bones tell a story the child is too young or too frightened to tell." He published an article "The Roentgen Manifestations of Unrecognized Skeletal Trauma in Infants," 

In 1962, C. Henry Kempe, a pediatrician at the University of Colorado Medical School, tried…

Australian Christian Homeschooling, Creationism by Stealth,and Killing Children's Critical Thinking Skills.

A recent article in many papers in Australia, highlight a rise in illegal homeschooling practices.

Example:

Though even those Christian homeschooling groups claiming legality are suspicious as I've found references to extremely delusional drivel in books by nutjob…

When Secular Children Fly Solo At Church

This weekend was a personal test for my parenting. As an atheist parent, I am pretty adamant in presenting both sides of an argument and using context when discussing religious belief with my kids. The only confirmation of how fair of a job I am doing is when the kids end up in awkward…

Introduction to When Green the Grass Did Grow Around the Fumbles of Desire

 

            I am a West Virginian.  My father’s people came from France by way of Scotland to the area around Pinch up the Elk River to settle on a 900 acre tract of land bequeathed to them by the King of England in 1625.  My mother’s grandmother was from the Barker and Lewis families with links to the Melungeon clan who claim to be descendants of the Portuguese who chose to stayed behind when the others left to go home.  …

Is Religious indoctrination of children Meltal Abuse?

It's a crime to lock your child up under the stairs. It's considered abuse. I fail to see the difference in locking a child's mind under the stairs. The psychological wounds last forever a broken bone heals in 6-8weeks.



   I myself grew up attending the JW (Jehovah's Witness) kingdom Hall. I'm in my 40's I have 2 kids 18-22. I was lucky in a way, I was born without a God spot and knew from the 2nd day everything that was said and thought  about religions was utter bullshit. And…

Atheism and Child Abuse...not what you think!

The title of this blog is entirely misleading.  But I could not figure out what else to use so there it is.  Read on...

I was born with something in my gut, something I'll call a "savior complex," for want of better words.  I've never been a bawl-bag of compassion but somewhere deeper inside I've always cared.  And I've been cursed with the ability to see people hurting.  For some thirty years or so I thought the answer to fixing people's suffering was god.  I was stupid, of course,…

Apologists of Circumcision

The Columbus, Ohio newspaper, The Republic, just today printed the story Religion: Battle Over Circumcision, describing the battle that is erupting in San Francisco over a November 8 ballot that would ban male circumcision. While much of the article tries to distract readers from the issue by making reference to Foreskin Man and how it incites the anger of religious groups like Jews. I think the real issue is not what the author of “Foreskin Man” is up to, but the fact that there is an…

Four Year Old Sees Heaven, Writes a Bestseller, Destroys Atheism!

It's all true.  We have to believe this story.  From the mouth of a child.  Buy the book.  Support heaven and the blue-eyed Jesus.  Why wouldn't you just believe?  I mean, here's what the publisher says:

“This was a very down-to-earth, conservative, quote-unquote normal Midwestern family. We became fully convinced that this story was valid. And also that it was a great story that would just take off.”…

My Story



Hi, I’m Mark, I am 24 years old, I was born an Atheist like everyone else, but early on in childhood I was introduced to Christianity. I was never baptized or ‘saved’ as they so arrogantly state.

As far back as I can remember my Mother always went to church,…

Mondo Diablo Episode 286: This Christmas has Been Brought to You by Child Labor





This week, the Krampus and his workers, Knecht Ruprecht, Krampus, Hans Trapp, Zwarte Piet, Klaubauf, Muff, Butz, Pere Fouettard and Belsnickel, bring you the last in the series of Worst Jobs podcasts. This time it's children making dolls for children, gos-herding and turkey dressing. As in, yanking the guts out of hundreds or maybe thousands of fresh turkeys, by hand, in time for… Continue

A Cold Stare - Planned section for a book called "A Journey of 'Faith': Memoire of a Transformation from Christian Child to Atheist Adult"

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…

Is Religious Child Abuse Getting Worse?

It seems that every day there is another case of child abuse exposed within religious organizations. Religious leaders try to capitalize on the cases, as evidence of evil in the world and pass off the blame on the Devil. They even point to increasing secularism in Western society as the reason for so many cases. And, they are right. It is because…
