Jesus didn’t approve homosexuality.

Jesus Saves!


Jesus take the wheel.

Jesus is Lord!

Y’all need Jesus!


Jesus on stationery.

Jesus on itty bitty gold crosses dangling from your mom’s neck.

Jesus on billboards.

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't a Law-Breaking Hippie, Condemns Fellow Churches

I normally make an effort to go out of my way to avoid any news stories coming out of FOX news. I also do what I can to not bother responding to any discussion panels either. There is one draw that will get my attention, and keep it, in a FOX news article. Pastors, politics, and biblical scripture.…

It's Not The Hatfield and The McCoys...But It's Pretty Close

You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the…

Answers In Genesis Creation Museum Legal Discrimination Practices In Hiring

Earlier this week, I received one of my usual spammy job listings emails. You know, the head hunter types that have job potentials to check out since my “skill set matches what the employer is looking for.” Naturally, I never look at such emails because I am completely satisfied working for the postal…

The Religious Usurping Of Your Humanity

Nelson Mandela once said,”To deny people their rights is to challenge their very humanity.” Granted, he was referring to the hard to imagine reality of South Africa’s apartheid crisis, but his message can easily be projected onto many cultural crises in the world today.

I have always been keenly aware…

Godwinks or Hoodwinked?

Have you heard about Godwinks yet?

They are new in the “feel good” style media line up lately. I was introduced to these once a month motivational segments while at work the other morning when one of our clerks went on her break, tuning in to the ever popular wine drinking duo of Kathy Lee and Hoda on the Today show. This…

Spiritual Eugenics Really Are A Thing

My eldest son and I were making the daily commute to school this past week, and we ended up on the discussion of extending human life to hundreds of years. He’d overheard a news article about slowing down the aging process, which got him thinking. Naturally, I’m somewhat against extending human…

Trial and Error Isn't All That Complicated

"You're an atheist. How can you know right from wrong then if you don't have God to show you?"

I was asked this by a representative of a local Catholic church at a community small business event last night. You know the type of event, where the businesses stay open extra late and let…

RFRA Convert! I'm so Christian now!

My apologies for being late to the RFRA party. I've been busy with work the past couple of weeks. At first, I was disappointed with RFRA passing in Indiana, but after seeing this article on the Church of Cannabis, I am inspired to go back to Christianity. In fact, I'm going to start my own flavor:…

Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst?

I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here:…

Preaching On Social Media - via

We’ve all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha’s cat, or your friend’s son that lost a tooth, you see this:


If you are irreligious like myself, all you see is this:…

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…

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest


For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than…

Symbolism and Propaganda

This may seem like a bit of a 'reach' for you kind reader, but I just had a thought I will probably play around with for a while.

While we know that Constantine's Chi Rho Christian symbol was this:

The earliest cross symbol was a pagan one like this:…

Why You Can Be Certain Deities Do Not Exist

Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…

A New Snippet From "Christ's Rebellion"

The trip to Capernum had become disastrous. Looking over his shoulder beyond the massive crowd of would be students and desperately ill citizens who had traveled many miles to just touch Jesus’ robes, Judas saw a small detachment of town guards waiting for them. These…

The Book Of Life

I have been often troubled by the many mortal human attitudes and behaviors many different deities have taken on in various holy texts. Petty emotions like jealously, bigotry, hate, anger, and lust, to name a few. All of these…

Refresher Course In Work Place Prosyletizing

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have undergone training courses at my new employer's office. Typically, you get to meet everyone you will be working with, and I had a couple days of shadow training. Essentially, I was riding along side my trainer, watching how she…
