There is a Madness to My Method

A friend of mine from high school has recently abandoned Christianity in favor of atheism.  She messaged me on gchat yesterday to talk about it.  The conversation made me smile.  She told me how now, instead of thanking god, her children thank other people.  No more grace, but completely unprompted her kids will thank the [Read More...]

Bravery Has Its Rewards

A while back I posted an email I got from Allie asking how to be an activist even when you’re afraid.  In the email she talked about wanting to have the atheism talk with her religious parents. I want to be able to ask my Christian parents – my good, kind, loving, amazingly supportive Christian [Read More...]

I Get Email: Religious Family During the Holidays

I received an email the other day detailing a scenario I’m sure several atheists find themselves in during the holidays. Greetings, I’m a 21 year-old college student majoring in pre-veterinary medicine and biology. Because of the wonderful pre-vet program at this particular university, I went there despite it being affiliated with one particular christian denomination. [Read More...]

Catholic League Took Down Their Contact Page

The Catholic League said they wanted to adopt all us sad, miserable, good-for-nothing atheists.  It turns out we wanted to be adopted!  We came to them, eager to participate…and they closed the doors when they saw us approaching. The Catholic League has taken down their Contact Us page.  Click yon link – it’s gone.   [Read More...]

Another Wayward Babe Ripe for Adoption

Jon Willis wants to be adopted so very badly, and he sent the Catholic League a great email (as should you)! Dear sirs, I recently got wind of the “Adopt-an-Atheist” program proposed by Bill Donohue and want to congratulate you on such a wonderful idea! As an atheist activist myself, I’d like to let you [Read More...]

Dear Catholic League

Well look what I found!  It’s a ‘contact us’ form for the Catholic League!  Squee!  And they want to hear information regarding incidents of anti-Catholic bias! Man, can I ever help them out. [Read more...]

Adopt me! Adopt me!

Bill Donohue has a great idea on how to win the culture war: adopt-an-atheist!  Oh, this guy is just a treat. Approximately 80 percent of Americans are Christian, and 96 percent celebrate Christmas. Of the 20 percent who are not Christian, non-believers make up the largest segment, though the number of self-identified atheists is tiny. [Read More...]

Pictures: My Anti-Myth

There were several myths about atheists provided yesterday that seemed to be frontrunners in the ‘bullshit atheists have to deal with’ marathon.  I shall attempt to rebut them with pictures. [Read more...]

Carl Sagan Day: The Pale Blue Dot

In honor of Carl Sagan Day, here is my favorite excerpt from the bounty he left us. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world… The man was a poet. In his honor we shall continue to hold curiosity as a virtue, and [Read More...]

Devil Child

Mark sent this to me on facebook.  I see situations like this daily, it comes with the job. Then, on my 15th birthday (the day that my mum gave me a purity ring and announced that I had become a “wonderful woman of god”) I told my entire family that I was an atheist. The [Read More...]
