Hill Street Blues actor Daniel Travanti disparages atheists in foxholes

EllenBeth Wachs, the Florida atheist who has been harassed and arrested by a religious zealot in the Polk County Sherriff’s Dept recently shared something with me. It involves B-list Hollywood actor Daniel Travanti of Hill Street Blues ‘fame’. He played Captain Frank Furillo, if you were trying to remember this ‘Where are they now’ thespian. Apparently he sent a [Read More...]

God wants me to do *what* with these sandbags?

I’ve come a long way on my Spiritual Fitness journey. I’ve taken their advice and started an ‘online blog’ and everything. I even took their advice to join social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook in order to connect with a Spiritual Community back home. However, I fear that if I’m too open minded about [Read More...]

Religion is like a NSFW

I’m sure you’ve seen the original. Even many religious people identify with it. The sentiment “don’t you dare tell my kids about your god(s)” is pretty much universal.

Command’s “Strategies of Satan: How to detect, defeat him” sent to everyone

I get Email… and on this day, so did every other person on the entire post. And it didn’t even come from a Chaplain’s e-mail address, rather the command itself. Which wouldn’t necessarily be a problem if it weren’t so overwhelmingly one-sided. This is the same post that denied me the opportunity to distribute Atheist [Read More...]

In 1991, Bill Hicks *nailed it* about Iraq War in 2011

I’m amazed at how much of this routine works for both wars. It’s uncanny. http://www.youtube.com/embed/u4CQ_1GWn4w? That was 20 years ago. This was about the first Iraq War. Notice how long it takes for his routine to give away the difference? Even the SCUD Missile stuff at 3:30 really is just like a vehicle born IED. “A [Read More...]

Kurt Vonnegut on Atheists in Foxholes

A friend left this quote on my facebook wall. “The sermon was based on what he claimed was a well-known fact, that there were no Atheists in foxholes. I asked Jack what he thought of the sermon afterwards, and he said, “There’s a chaplain who never visited the front.” -Kurt Vonnegut Hocus Pocus [Read more...]

This is why CaTURDay is really just embarrassing

Animals are great. Memes can be fun. But look what happened to this one: http://www.youtube.com/embed/dKVI2_Dl00Y? and that was in 2008! Thanks for skipping Caturday this week, Jen! [Read more...]
