Brevard Commission that won’t let atheists give invocation accuses them of censorship.

The other day I wrote about a developing situation in Brevard County down in Florida.  The atheists want to give an invocation and were denied by the County Commission.  Many organizations sent them letters along the lines of “Don’t break the law or you’ll get to pay our legal fees.”  The Commission was unimpressed. In [Read More…]

Chalking from Akron Secular Student Alliance defaced: vandalism in the name of Jesus.

Remember when someone drove a car into the Oklahoma ten commandments monument?  Even before it was revealed that the perpetrator was a Christian man who was, sadly, off his meds, the atheist community came out decrying the deed as loathsome (like myself, Hemant, and more).  This was contrasted by the fact that every time an atheist billboard [Read More…]
