Atheists are brave in war but not in life

According to someSo sometimes I will listen to talk radio on the AM stations. You know, the ones that play Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, and the always comical Glen Beck. I don't actually listen to those shows most of the time because I feel like my brain is melting...but I do listen to some of the local shows. The local AM shows dial down the rhetoric and are sometimes quite informative...if not a bit too conservative for my tastes.Regardless I was listening to a station and they were talking … [Read more...]

Removing Christian privilege from “God’s Army”

I made this in the hopes that it can be useful for removing that smug Christian privilege we occasionally see in the military.Usage:"You're so right. There are no atheists in foxholes.

Have a good day

I get email, too:There are no atheists in foxholes buddy they all cry out to God when the shells are raining in. To hold an antheist event on a military post is unacceptable.

I didn't realize he had gone off he wagon, but Daniel Travanti, of 80's Cop drama 'Hill Street Blues' fame needs to go back to group / treatment.Last week he was contacting brave Florida atheist activist, EllenBeth Wachs.

80′s TV show “Hill Street Blues” star’s incoherent anti-atheist rant

This morning, I told you about Daniel J. Travanti's bizarre rant against prominent Florida atheist, EllenBeth Wachs.Somewhere through his type-stumbling, he managed to claim there were no atheists in foxholes.

You can even send him a message! (He's a bit 'out of work' since his higher power is only … [Read more...]
