FSM Kiva team reaches $1.5 million.

Hey, look at this: it’s atheists being charitable without the promise of eternal heaven, but just because we don’t want other people to suffer. And all of that money will be going toward alleviating poverty.  No bibles or other wastes, just food and infrastructure.  We rule. And I love the note that Bobby Henderson put [Read More...]

Stedman and Chituc observe a silly religious practice.

Hey, check it out!  A couple of passive aggressive, dishonest atheists (Vlad Chituc and Chris Stedman) are trying to show solidarity with religious people by abstaining from some bad habits for 40 days at a particular time of the year.  How quaint. Meanwhile, the rest of us work on self-improvement year-round, because it’s good for [Read More...]

Law and Secularism – The Week in Review

Religious Freedoms Last week we reported on the Kansas City Atheist Coalition being denied permission to participate in its city’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade because of their lack of religious belief. No other non-Catholic or secular groups were prohibited. The KC Atheists went to the parade anyway, holding signs that protested the discrimination and [Read More...]

National Atheist Party Holds Inaugural Convention in San Francisco

Focus on secular values, history of religion in the U.S., and moving forward within the current religio-political climate. With much fanfare, the National Atheist Party (NAP) held its inaugural convention, NAPCON2013, Saturday, March 9 at the South San Francisco Conference Center. More than simply a gathering of those with similar secular ideals, it challenged its [Read More...]

Another company that sucks: Jimmy John’s.

Man, it’s going to pain me to give up Jimmy John’s, but it’s the thing to do. A CEO who has publicly railed against the cost of providing health insurance to his employees has donated tens of thousands of dollars to a private health care clinic in his Florida community. In an interview with Fox [Read More...]

Two more “Go Godless” billboards going up in Texas.

Woke up to another American Atheists press release in my inbox.  Dave Muscato apparently takes his job pretty seriously.  :P  Anyway, two more of their “Go Godless” billboards are going up in Texas.  From the press release: Featured on the two new billboards are former Presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Texas Governor Rick Perry. The [Read More...]

These shirts are epic.

Oh, those Kansas City Atheists.  Barred from participation in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, they are making waves and are going to be operating an Ask an Atheist booth at the parade…all while wearing these shirts. I love euphemisms.  Something as simple as “Lucky to be a Kansas City Atheist” can convey a message like [Read More...]

A strange justification for a new student group.

A student named Ken Harding is starting a second secular group at Missouri State, where I went to college.  I support him and wish him all the best.  But in his write up over at the CFI On-Campus blog, this paragraph struck me as odd: Springfield, Missouri, affectionately known as the buckle of the Bible [Read More...]

Art show to premier at the American Atheists conference.

I got a press release from American Atheists in my inbox the other day that made me smile (which is good, because so far my day has been filled with insipid commenters who think lending tacit support to high-ranking Catholic criminals makes them better than me).  At their 50th anniversary conference in Austin later this [Read More...]

Law and Secularism – The Week in Review

Reproductive Rights News In a refreshing change from the abortion restrictions imposed elsewhere in the country, the Hawaiian Senate wants to do something different. Hawaii’s senate has just passed SB 526, which mandates that hospitals provide unbiased information and access to emergency contraceptives. Republican lawmakers decried the measure, claiming that it violated the hospital’s right [Read More...]
