Secular Pro-Life (Anti-choice) Claim: Planned Parenthood Cheats Donors

Apparently, Secular Pro-Life is so irked by Planned Parenthood that they are willing to make unfounded charges about what they do with donations. True Pooka investigates...Now that you’re done reading I’m going to show you a magic trick I call; “Proper research done without confirmation bias followed by conclusions drawn based on experience and not ignorance.”Planned Parenthood issued a number of statements following the Komen incident. The following press release here gives a more thorough … [Read more...]

Madness Mayhem HIV charity

I'm doing another charity telethon this weekend, Saturday / Sundayhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vrKxPIXdUAI'm really no good at these. If I knew how to talk people out of their money, I wouldn't always be in the red like I am.  So what I need is for people who have money to wait until 5:00pm Sunday, when it's my hour to host the show, and then jump onto the donation links.  That way it'll look like I did a good job. … [Read more...]

The Unbelievers

Next week, Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss will tour the US to personally host special screenings of 'The Unbelievers'.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxDLkoK8vQQA few months ago, Krauss and I were having breakfast in Oklahoma City, and he was telling me about his new movie.  I remember remarking that when Dawkins and Krauss are in a movie, it's produced in Hollywood, but almost every professional documentary film I've been in was released straight to YouTube. Of course that's because … [Read more...]

Courtney Caldwell and Sarah Moglia joining me to discuss secular anti-choice arguments withMSS

So I won't be the "token woman" on this round of discussion on the Magic Sandwich Show.  Sarah Moglia has already weighed in on her opinion of secular arguments against abortion. Also Courtney Caldwell will be joining the discussion . I first became aware of her when she liveblogged the Wendy Davis filibuster.Should be an interesting discussion on this topic with well informed women on the topic of reproductive rights. Hopefully we can persuade more people to get off the fence and support r … [Read more...]

Secular Pro-Life “Holocaust Baiting” Post 2

The second post looking at Secular Pro-Life's tactics is up. I hope that informing the community about what they advocate will provide information about SPL for our community to make up their own minds. This series will show that the people at SPL aren't critical thinkers and haven't earned the title "freethinker."To that aim, the True Pooka, whose family was directly affected by the Holocaust, breaks down the numbers on SPL's "Are You One in Six Million?" Campaign. The campaign is targeted … [Read more...]

Secular Pro-Life “Fetus Worshippers”?

Should we defend freethinking spaces from anti-choicers like Secular Pro-Life? I wanted more information on this organization as I have seen them at conventions.  Lucky for me, I know you-tuber True Pooka, who as he will tell you, shares the same concern. He has more experience investigating anti-choice groups than I do. He has shown me things I wouldn't have seen; even though SPL hides them in plain sight. So I asked him to help me gather information in order to share it with our community. I … [Read more...]

22 questions for ‘evolutionists’ -answered

Ever since I saw that Buzzfeed article, '22 Messages From Creationists To People Who Believe In Evolution', I wished I could talk to each of those poor, misguided people. I mean, many of them seem like nice genuine folks, but they've all been deceived by the charlatans of religion, and that is very sad.  What they think they know about science is usually completely backward.  They've been so misinformed that some of their questions and comments remind me of the famous quote from physicist W … [Read more...]

What really matters…The So-Called Secular Arguments Against Choice

It is often difficult and awkward to move disagreements forward to where they become productive in the insular, organized atheist community. Especially for a family that is as actively involved as the Ra family, because a lot of times we know and like and often respect the people involved on a personal level. And to make matters more awkward so do our other atheists friends. So basically, we all collectively cringed about Dave Silverman's comment to conservatives about abortion rights, because … [Read more...]

The Place with the New Covenant Group

I was recently on two episodes of 'the Place' with Dr & Mrs Jones of the New Covenant Group.First they talked just with me.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cizI1U2rmF8That went pretty well, so I joined the panel for the evening show.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU0U0_9tg5gI very much enjoyed participating in the show, and I applaud the effort behind maintaining an interfaith dialogue. It's especially necessary now because there are two trends which need to be considered separately, … [Read more...]
