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…]

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…]

Hawaii’s senate has just passed SB 526, which mandates that hospitals provide unbiased information and access to emergency contraceptives.

Foundation Beyond Belief announced this morning that its Light The Night Walk Team raised $430,000 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society last year, the largest amount ever raised by a first year non-corporate team [Read More…]

Lawsuit Filed to Remove “In God We Trust” from U.S. Money

Here’s a fun read: A 116 page complaint filed in federal court February 1st. Why is it fun? The plaintiffs say all the things we’ve said for years. FFRF is the lead plaintiff.

I want to buy this book. Help make sure it gets written.

I’m a little late to this party since Stephanie Zvan and Ed Brayton have already blogged on this, but Ania Bula is writing a book about depression that will lambast the copious amount of alternative treatments that seek to profit, not by alleviating mental illness, but by capitalizing on desire to be cured.  She will [Read More…]

Law and Secularism – the Week in Review 3/7/13

Reproductive Rights News Arkansas has passed the most restrictive abortion laws in the entire country. Both bills were vetoed by the governor, who said they were unconstitutional,  but the state legislature overrode both vetoes in quick measure. I ranted about this on my own blog earlier this week, and all the depressing details are there. [Read More…]
