This isn't related to atheism or the military, except as it relates to abortion restrictions and the fact that most of those restrictions are put in place by religious people who think they are doing the work of their god.When I first heard about North Carolina senate bill 353, I thought it was a joke right out of the Onion.  After all, who in their right minds would possibly think to link abortion restrictions to motorcycle safety?  Well, as it turns out, the North Carolina senate, that's w … [Read more...]

Church puts Pat Tillman on a Christian cross for Memorial Day

I nearly destroyed my television set. Right now, I want to destroy a television network. Fuck everything about this....Watch this report about Barbara Morris' church-driven memorial to the troops.[UPDATE: Channel 14 did the right thing and re-edited the story without this cross, and the reporter apologized. Barbara promised to remove Pat's cross from future displays. No word on whether she'll check the religious preference of the rest of the heroes she's honoring, or why she included … [Read more...]

Heaving Dead Cats shows some love

Heaving Dead Cats is a skeptical freethought atheist blog to dispel ignorance and enlighten the mind. Yeah, it's a strange name, but it's actually pretty popular. Pharyngula doesn't exactly roll off the tongue either, but it still became the most popular secular blog by far.  Definitely give HDC a look if you are unfamiliar. Neece, over at HDC had some very kind words for us on her latest blog post. My friend Justin told me last week that he and his group are putting together a big event calle … [Read more...]

Ray Garton defends Foxhole Atheists, takes on Evangelicals

Ray Garton, acclaimed Horror writer and Atheist blogger / activist, has just written an epic article, titled Marching As To War: The Attempted Christian Takeover of the U.S. Military. It deals with Rock the Fort and Rock Beyond Belief, along with some related evangelical offenses. It's quite lengthy, more than a few pages. Don't be intimidated, the thorough writing is compelling, and touches on many things that the average civilian is most likely unaware of.Here are some of my favorite p … [Read more...]

Attend RBB in style with Aristotle’s Muse

I'm picturing the upcoming secular event at Fort Bragg as a mass of people with nontheist slogans on bumper stickers attached to their cars. I can see people flooding the parade field with cool shirts with secular messages, some even holding those funny signs they held up at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.What's that? You don't have any secular gear? There are many online vendors that can help you out! Aristotle's Muse is one of the most popular vendors in the freethinking … [Read more...]

Rocking Beyond Belief

There is just too much to do when a fairly successful project starts to get real exposure.Tonight was a great success for the Rock Beyond Belief planning team. We welcomed new members, many of whom are from the prominent local nontheist non-profit, Triangle Freethought Society. Our new members have already begun to make their presence known. … [Read more...]

Unreasonable Faith posts about Rock Beyond Belief

Unreasonable Faith is one of the most popular atheist blogs on the internet, and today Vorjack did a post about us.  This kind of press is exactly what Rock Beyond Belief needs right now.Vorjack's post was gracious, but I think his European sensibilities overshadow his ability to really gauge the evangelical situation in the U.S. Military. You may have heard by now that there was a Christian concert and evangelical extravaganza at Fort Bragg, NC, called Rock the Fort. It was sponsored Billy G … [Read more...]
