Says she supports the troops… doesn’t support ALL the troops.

 A few weeks ago I contacted Justin Griffith to see if I could possibly help him promote Rock Beyond Belief.   My thinking was that because he is a busy active duty soldier, there may be room for an assistant to help with some remote tasks.   I have been following the scandal since I first heard about it back in March and since I have been wanting to get involved in atheist activism, this just seemed like the right opportunity to actually DO something as opposed to merely complaining a … [Read more...]

I Get Comments – “I do not support the troops”

This one comes from new commenter, Autymn - who appears to be from California. I do not support the troops. I hate Americans and every other nation; all Commonwealths/Republics/Dèmocraties must be taken down.Death to cretins! I followed a link he posted to his Google group, and I wouldn't recommend it. Here is what I found: When we die we become ghosts and may go anywhere (well, anywhere dry), and are not under any fake Gods. Many still alive'v been to the heavens (or planes) by astral p … [Read more...]

Bastrop School Knowingly Breaks Laws and Promises About Prayer

Yesterday, we brought you Damon Fowler's struggle to stop the school's prayer at his graduation. He threatened to go to the ACLU, so they actually backed down. Then staff members at this school started saying extremely upsetting things about him in the town's newspapers. They were mad that a person dared to call them out on decades old constitutionally settled law.Several of us passed along his request for people to write to the school, and I added a link to the newspaper in Bastrop. You guys … [Read more...]

Courageous High School Atheist Needs 5 Minutes Of Your Time

Rock Beyond Belief has a busy weekend planned (with that exciting 24 hour telethon that you are going to watch). However, I really want to shift gears for a second.This is from reddit: My graduation from high school is this Friday. I live in the Bible Belt of the United States. The school was going to perform a prayer at graduation, but due to me sending the superintendent an email stating it was against Louisiana state law and that I would be forced to contact the ACLU if they ignored me, … [Read more...]

Rock the Fort Chaplain Is From the Moon, Writes Foxhole Atheist A Letter

Almost 45 days after the last-minute restrictions forced us to cancel our first approach, a fresh comment appeared on that announcement awaiting moderation. I was blown away at what I saw.
