This weekend my wife and I announced that we are having a baby. It's always nice to share news like that.After being able to share that news with everyone you'd think life would be honky-dory but sometimes you can't go a day without douchebaggery.Family and people I know from my previous life as a believer kept popping in to throw in their two cents about me being an atheist.

Frankly, this is likely to come up again (and again). Even the main website for the festival we launched was blocked by many military bases, despite the event being largely staffed by DoD personnel. Blogging with ferocious activists like Chris … [Read more...]
