The First Amendment: What Argument?

I've been spending a lot of time studying the Constitution, lately. I really like that document and I think it is very nearly the greatest thing ever written. It's mind-blowingly brilliant and, although there were flaws in it, the manner in which it was written and how our government was set up gave it the ability to become great. I guess I shall start with the simplicity of the First Amendment, the bedrock of my own activism. Amendment I  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment … [Read more...]

Recruiting

hunter-falls-asleep-1

One of my best buds in the Corps missed out on the easiest duty ever! It's pretty funny to me merely because of the way he tells it.He had received orders for recruiting, which many people dread, but pulling all the stops out he got his orders for Texas. And if there's one thing the Marine Corps doesn't need, it's more Texans. No offense or anything but the Corps is comprised of, in my limited experience, a vast majority of Texans.Recruiting in Texas is like going hunting at the … [Read more...]

Marine Corps outlaws Ouija Board because of “mystery and fear”?

Ouija Board Outlawed

Yeah, it's real. This is a few months old but it's still an active order for the engineer school.Technically, it's not illegal - stupid, but not illegal. The Ouija board was never officially ruled as a religious article so therefore it is not subject to religious protections.Haven't we got two wars, high rates of servicemembers committing suicide, and alcohol-related deaths to worry about?Fail! … [Read more...]

Is Christian evangelism to blame for the popularity of internet porn?

it starts

So I've just gotten back into the habit of blogging when someone sent me a link from another Patheos blog on the evangelical Christian channel. I was sort of in shock and awe at the post. I seriously bellowed in laughter at reading the headline and then began to actually read the argument he made for internet pornography being responsible for "the nones". Here was the title of his blog post. Go read it for a laugh and then come back here while I rebut it.Is internet porn to blame for the … [Read more...]

This picture is being passed around Facebook with this absolutely ridiculous story ACLU vs. US MarinesTHIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO KEEP IT GOING! If you look closely at the picture, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying. This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. "These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, " … [Read more...]

A little inspiration from my mother

The-King-James-Bible

Oh, Social media, you scoundrel! I was perusing through Facebook, happened upon my mother's page (she clearly holds a different religious view than me) and found this wonderful gem of a link attached to it!Cancer Cure in the Bible?Oh, yes! Yes, my friends! Jesus cured cancer through some twisted code he left in this book he never touched nor had a hand in writing. Something something codex...something? So... The headline on her facebook page read It's worth a try Right, so long … [Read more...]

I’m gonna try this again

It's been a hot minute since I actually sat at a computer to write anything. I've had a lot on my mind in regards to many issues that have come up facing the military, atheists, and just life in general but haven't felt the compulsion, passion, or desire to put the proverbial "pen to paper" and lay my thoughts out. There have been a lot of factors in my life affecting my ability to write. I've been...subdued and in a mental stasis. I'm not even sure I can map it out into words yet but hopefully … [Read more...]
