Please help this important women's rights documentary get made!

Posted on May 22, 2010 at 6:04pm 0 Comments

Readers, you may have recently noticed on my sidebar a plea to help to Brooklyn-based filmmakers, Lana Wilson and Martha Shane, raise funds for their documentary "Trust Women," which takes a look at Dr. LeRoy Carhart and Dr. Warren Hern, two of the last physicians in the country who continue to perform late-term abortions. Whether they realize it or not, the directors are documenting the tale of two American doctors who stand up to terrorism everyday. I had the chance… Continue

Separate still not equal: Why gays need to call it marriage

Posted on November 11, 2009 at 7:30pm 2 Comments

Hey, AN, here's a post I wrote yesterday at Good Reason News. Please feel free to visit me there and leave comments, if'n that's what you're into.


I've laid out my argument for gay marriage several times before, but to succinctly review what I've said, I maintain that since homosexuality is not a mental disorder, that… Continue

As can be demonstrated throughout history, religions do all they canto insert themselves into aspects of people's lives in which they have no business. "Good parents" bring their children to church; How many catholic hospitals are there around the U.S.?, How many religious schools?

There was a time when medical health and "spirituality" went hand in hand. Most 'hospitals,' which at that time were… Continue

Hey AN. Here's a blog post I wrote about prayer in governments. Please feel free to visit Good Reason News for more.



I don't think I'm generalizing here to say that many religious folk (and indifferent people) are blind to how absorbed in religion our government is. There's been plenty of press lately involving… Continue

Greetings, Billy! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home. BTW, I'm form Philly too.

Thanks for the welcome, I really needed it. I was so thrilled to find this site. ^^ I'm trying to figure out the background right now, and it's not really going my way, haha.

Well, I still have to read the Jefferson Bible, as I said, but I just liked the concept, from what I gathered. Jesus as more of a mortal Buddha or Gandhi type guru than the 'son of God'. Give you the shirt off his back even if he would freeze himself to death. Regardless of whether or not he was an actual person, 'Jesus' was an extremely influential figure.

The LaVey book is awfully antagonistic towards religion, but I think it's more because LaVey's philosophies were so opposite of what is shoved down our throats by Christianity. He wrote the book to unite people with similar views, which were very .....I dunno......nihilistic or Nietschean in some ways. (

Compared to the pacifism of the Jefferson book. Sort of yin and yang.

I reject parts and accept parts of everything I read. I don't get why many of what I got from either book should be rejected, as many are common values, anyway, among humanity, as it is.

Hell, though I understand it to be a great work, and something religious people should be encouraged to read, a number of the arguments I hear people quote from the God Delusion is stuff I already have thought, without having yet read it anyway. So, certain parts of that would be redundant like hearing myself speak. But, I would still want to read the book, even if not every word was of interest to me.
