There’s an old meme floating around in which a pastor explains why he quit attending sports events… a veiled reference to the excuses he hears from people who no longer want to attend church:
Kristy Loye is a former “devout, Bible-believing fundamental evangelical Christian” who eventually became an atheist. What pushed her over the edge was the church’s treatment of women. Specifically, how they treated her and a friend of hers when they were going through divorces.
Virginia lawmaker Mark Cole understands the pressing issues affecting his constituents: issues like which bathrooms trans kids can use.
And he understands how to solve these issues: ensure that kids’ “anatomical sex” matches the gender designation of the bathroom they use.
At Monday’s Oak Ridge City Council meeting in Tennessee, Aleta Ledendecker of the Rationalists of East Tennessee became the first atheist to deliver an invocation address there.
But not every council member was there to hear it, and Ledendecker wasn’t even able to deliver the full speech because the Mayor cut her off early.
