In This Lovely Short Film, a 90-Year-Old Atheist Eats Bacon for the First Time

In a delightful 9-minute film by Sol Friedman, we meet a 90-year-old woman named Razie who happens to be an atheist. She was raised Jewish, but when she began exploring the internet later in life, she “quickly became fascinated by The Google” and stumbled upon Christopher Hitchens. Her faith didn’t have a chance after that.

But one of the relics of her religious upbringing is that she’s never eaten bacon in her life. Bacon & God’s Wrath follows Razie as she prepares to take her first bite.

The problem is that Budich consistently did so on Good Friday — a religious holiday.

Ohio School Ends Tradition of Singing “The Lord’s Prayer” at Graduation, and Christians Are Furious

I realize there’s some debate over what can and can’t be sung at public high school events, but a “musical rendition of ‘The Lord’s Prayer'” should make anyone‘s list of obviously-promoting-Christianity-and-therefore-illegal music. It’s not an instrumental ode to God. It’s not a classic song that has withstood the test of time. It’s just a song you’d expect to hear in a megachurch on a Sunday morning.
