Bob Jones University Blames Abuse Victims

Evangelical Wheaton College went to court to stop women at the school getting contraceptive insurance coverage.

They go to court to stop women from h … [Read more...]

Many religious fundamentalists feel under siege by the secular world and harbor a deeply paranoid sense of victimhood

Maryland and six other states  have articles in their constitutions saying people who don’t believe in God are not eligible to hold public office.  I thought that fight was over. It isn’t. As reported in the New York Times  Rob Boston, director of communications for Americans United for Separation of Church and State said, “Right now we hear a lot of talk from conservative Christians about their being persecuted and their being forced to accommodate same-sex marriage. But there’s nothing in … [Read more...]

This Christmas You’ll Face Airline Tyranny: Time for a Revolution?

(those were the days!)I have been flying a lot, really A LOT. In the last ten weeks I’ve taken fifteen cross-country trips. That’s thirty flights plus, because several trips involved flying through hubs and changing planes. (I’m on an author tour for a new bookWHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peace.)I’m noticing something disturbing: the mentality of our post-9/11 security state is creeping into the non-security-related parts of travel. … [Read more...]

I Blame Liberals too for the Eric Garner Grand Jury Abortion

Eric Garner’s dying words "I can't breathe" could have been President Obama's cry  for help during the last 7 years. Like other black American men in Tea Party/Fox News America, the President has been choked by right wing hate. But he has also been strangled  by liberal's inability to deal honestly with racism.In fact when a cop kills a black man with impunity liberals helped set the stage. Like the right they too blame the victim, in this case President Obama.What chance does an anon … [Read more...]

My Very Personal Happy Christmas Story: The wonderful yet toxic combination of Mom’s evangelical goodness, Jesus’ inevitable birthday

For me, as a child in the mission, Christmas meant feeling guilty because Mom did so much and we mere mortals did so little. My childhood Yuletide question was: “Mom, who’s going to be in our house for Christmas?” The answer never varied: “The guests God brought to us this year, my dear.”Mom stayed up all night wrapping gifts and making everything wonderfully and terrifyingly perfect. That’s why every Christmas morning I found the four-foot-long bulging wool stocking stuffed with individuall … [Read more...]

If Christianity Isn’t the Celebration of a Murder/Suicide Pact Between God the Father and God the Son, Then What is It? 

 It's Christmas. Time to ask, what the hell Christianity is about, if anything? If Christianity isn't the celebration of a murder/suicide pact between God the Father and God the Son, then what is it?The Crucifixion seems to be something like the story of Abraham and Isaac when God tested Abram by asking him to kill his son.  Then God said STOP!If evangelicals like Billy Graham are to be believed, when it came to his own son God said, "Kill him!"Does that make sense on a … [Read more...]

When Neighbors Asked About her Husband, Curious About the 52-year-old Man’s Disappearance, Kaling Wald Would tell Them he was “In God’s hands now.”

"Peter Wald’s family truly believed he would rise from the dead. They believed it because they had prayed for it, every single day, while his corpse lay rotting for six months in an upstairs bedroom of their north-end Hamilton home."Fundamentalists say they really believe and the rest of us don't. But the dirty little secret of fundamentalism is that they say one thing but do another. I mean, why is Franklin Graham still raising money to pay himself close to a million a year, if he really be … [Read more...]
