Christina here… So, as the story goes, Ernie Perce of PA participated in a zombie walk on Halloween with The Atheists of Central Pennsylvania dressed as Mohammad. A Muslim man, Talaag Elbayomy did not appreciate this, and attacked him.  Police charged Elbayomy with harassment, but the judge threw out the case, letting Elbayomy walk free. Talaag Elbayomy said he was at the [Read More...]

The Daily Twitter: Atheist vs Agnostic

Christina here… Not all Twitter exchanges involve me berating bigots for being bigots. Sometimes they go like this: [Read more...]

The Daily Twitter: Atheists are Satanists

Christina here… I think we are going to start a new feature of this blog: The Daily Twitter. Hopefully TDT will actually occur daily, but… no guarantees. Why would we do this, you might ask? Mostly because Twitter is aflutter with very interesting characters. About half of my Twitter interactions look like this:   [Read more...]

Why Twitter isn't blocking #atheistrollcall and #godisnotgreat

Christina here… For the past day or so, the Twitter hashtag #atheistrollcall has been rather active. For awhile, the tag was trending on Twitter – but not forever. Shortly after #atheistrollcall left the lists of trending topics, tweets accusing Twitter of blocking #atheistrollcall started rolling in: [Read more...]

The Polyamory Bear

Christina here… Many weeks ago, this video made the rounds on the atheoskeptifeminicalistosphere, for its message of  remaining “pure” until marriage.     That’s great if this is what you want, but we decided there are perfectly reasonable alternatives to this idealized and (frankly, rather bizarre) idea of “purity”. JT and I have a video [Read More...]

One "Million" Moms: you lose.

Christina here… Oh look, One “Million” mom’s sent out an email! If you haven’t already heard, Ellen DeGeneres mentioned One Million Moms on her television show yesterday with a few hand-picked Facebook comments that supported her of course. A few days ago, someone created a facebook page: 1 million people who support Ellen for JCPenney which, [Read More...]

Ashley on Cultural Appropriation

Christina here, letting Ashley (from our polyamory adventures!) do a guest post! Here she goes: Hello all!  Ashley here.  I want to open the doors for discussion on a topic that I hadn’t heard much about until fairly recently: cultural appropriation.  Cultural appropriation is the borrowing of an element or elements from a different culture.  [Read More...]

OneMillionMoms ramps up the hatred after being properly ignored.

Christina here… Oh goodie! I just got another email from OneMillionMoms, the small organization that uses arbitrary large-sounding numbers to pretend they represent more people than they do. If you recall, the last email from them I blogged about here. Here it is, with my comments. [Read more...]

No Church In The Wild

On Tweetdeck, I follow mentions of “nonbeliever”, because I’m a glutton for punishment. I noticed that people kept tweeting, “What’s a god to a nonbeliever?” and wondered where that phrase came from. At first, I thought it must be some Christian pop rock song. However, the phrase came up way too frequently for that. It [Read More...]
