Is our radio advertisement for the atheist festival over the top?

Well yes, yes it is. But we like to have fun here.Rock Beyond Belief radio adThis is our 'demo tape' for the atheist festival on Fort Bragg. We'd only do something along these lines for the rock station. NPR just doesn't seem like a good place for "AIDEN WILL RUIN YOUR FAMILY AND DESTROY YOUR CIVILIZATION!" I'd give anything to hear Ira Glass say that though.We had trouble not laughing as Lance said "Freedom isn't free, but this festival is." That phrase is in one of our cadences, and I … [Read more...]

Military gets nervous when I use Words Such As Burn

After lyrics to Aiden's song Hysteria were intentionally taken out of context to imply that we were going to burn down churches... well Fort Bragg got a little nervous. But I'm proud of them, they really came through the 'crisis' in a big way.We are now specifically guaranteed the right "to be critical of organized religion and it's adherents." In writing, no less. But we are still puzzled by the people who really believe we intend to burn churches! (Including chaplains!)How am I … [Read more...]

Fort Bragg: atheist festival *will* be critical of organized religion

Thanks to the efforts of my high ranking cyber-stalker, Fox News picked up a bogus story taking lyrics way out of context. The backlash could have threatened the entirety of the festival lineup at RBB. The short-term desired affect was achieved.Fort Bragg was pressured get me and all of the performers to sign a promise not to be critical of religion. This document was being called 'a rider'. It contained a whole host of other problematic concessions. Here are a few quick examples."Don't … [Read more...]

Christians want to burn down interfaith chapels on military bases

Footage has just emerged showing that it was the Christian event that threatened to burn down the chapels, not the atheists.I'm sick of getting death threats and other nastygrams about how I'm supposedly burning down churches for Obama (seriously).

He took a music video from Aiden way out of context.Aiden's song Hysteria begins wistfully."Love how they burn your synagogues / Love how they burn … [Read more...]

If you’re so innocent, why wont you admit that you’re not?

I believe my my out of context comments at Fox News have been taken even further out of context. Here's another 'winner' in the mailbag.“We felt it was entirely inappropriate for anyone to say your current religion is wrong,” Griffith told Fox News& Commentary.So, why are you so anti-Christian? Why would you choose to burn people’s property to advance your message of aetheism? Why do you single out the Judeo-Christian God as your enemy when He is the only savior you may ever know? You a … [Read more...]

FOXNews investigates the atheist festival, gets it twisted.

I know that Todd Starnes, and the religious right at Fox News have an agenda.Of course I know this ahead of time.I realize that journalists edit down their interviews, but should strive to do so in an ethical manner. Such 'ethical editing' is not what happened on Friday as Fox News 'reporter' Todd Starnes wrote his story about the festival. But I expected that. Fortunately, I recorded this interview, (thanks for transcribing, Kate!) - It can be read in its entirety at the bottom, but you s … [Read more...]
