Best Fundraising Idea EVER

I follow some atheist blogs so I knew a big fundraising campaign was gearing up for the Secular Student Alliance. Mostly it’s bloggers who are urging their readers to give, but Crommunist over at Freethought blogs went one better: he’s doing Youtube cover video requests in exchange for donations. I found it amusing to watch [Read More…]

We’ve spent seven months together as of Samhain, the entire Goddess half of the year. I hope the God half proves as interesting and rewarding. [Read More…]

Pagan Soup: Gleeks, Rock Gods, O’Donnell and Your Thoughts on Evil

Glee on Spirituality Glee has touched on spirituality before. Both Rachel and Puck are Jewish and Quinn’s parents are very conservative Christians. Last night Glee decided to feature songs about spirituality and while I groaned at first the episode actually turned out nicely, if a bit preachy.

Jay-Z and Aleister Crowley?

I pay very little attention to Top 40 but even I know who Jay-Z is and what his songs are. What I didn’t know was that he’s been using some occult imagery and I find this fascinating. The music and links in this post are NOT PG, so if you’re not comfortable with strong language [Read More…]
