Christians should eat free food with Fort Bragg atheists on Saturday

Todd Stiefel takes an unconventional approach to philanthropy. He put up the $50,000 at American Atheists that made our festival possible via his Stiefel Freethought Foundation.That represents¬†100% of the funding.

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.

It says they don't respect other's or their property, fail to understand humor and irony (FSM is a 'god' of sorts), and lack the courage to … [Read more...]
