Blogging mental illness: made the call.

Just did the intake call with a local clinic.  It was going well until we got to the questions about self-harm, at which point I was reminded of the first time I ever admitted to a doctor that I was having thoughts of self-harm.  I’m not having any such thoughts right now, but when asked [Read More…]

Thought I had about the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Something I thought about today when reflecting on how much ass the Freedom From Religion Foundation kicks (and this really applies to many atheist organizations) was how they’re winning most of their battles with less resources.  If you think they have as much money, or even close to as much money, as groups like the [Read More…]

Bryan Fischer: stopping men from having sex will stop AIDS.

Oh special twitter list, sometimes you make me laugh.  And sometimes you make my cry that this much hate and this much stupidity can exist within the same human being: Yeah, Bryan Fischer just can’t stand it when people politicize a tragedy and a disease to suit their pet cause…like he’s doing with this tweet.  [Read More…]

Colbert on child immigration.

Having lost its ass on Obamacare and gay rights, the GOP has shifted its focus to immigration.  Last week Obama requested 3.7 billion dollars to augment our border security, presumably to appease the Republicans…and the Republicans in the House shot it down.  Dude just can’t win. But one of the main points of focus right [Read More…]

Hilarious censorship by ChristianNews.net.

I wrote the other day about the FFRF’s victory with the Orange County School District in Florida.  Christians wanted to dispense bibles in the school, so atheists won the right to hand out anti-Christian literature (even though we’d prefer all proselytizing be removed from public schools). ChristianNews.net wrote about it too.  We’ll get to the [Read More…]

BREAKING: Federal court rules Oklahoma’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional.

In January a district judge in Oklahoma ruled that Oklahoma’s gay marriage ban ran afoul of the Constitution (with a spectacularly worded ruling).  The state appealed, and yet another federal judge (what is this, 19 in a row?) has ruled that the state’s ban on gay marriage is incompatible with a Constitution that calls for [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: something beautiful.

Another rough night last night.  So I woke up and type “something beautiful” into google image search.  This is what I found (from this Deviant Art). I still haven’t gotten the courage up to call a therapist.  Today’s the day though.  Rawr. [Read more…]

BREAKING: Florida’s gay marriage ban falls.

Yet another falls. A judge in the Florida Keys has overturned the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage after a legal challenge by six gay couples said it effectively made them second-class citizens. The ruling was issued Thursday by Circuit Judge Luis M. Garcia and applies only to Monroe County, which covers the Keys. The [Read More…]

I don’t get Christianity

I invite Christians to set me straight on some of this… and of course, with 30 brazillion sects/denominations, the exact doctrine will vary, so if what I’m saying doesn’t apply to your version, I’m not addressing you. [Read more…]

Wyoming candidate for governor would open Yellowstone National Park to mining.

Taylor Haynes wants to be governor of Wyoming.  How would he improve the state?  By opening Yellowstone National Park up to mining and grazing.  Oh, and any representatives from any of the federal land-management agencies would be arrested. Wyoming long has had an independent streak in its right-leaning politics, but a position on federal lands [Read More…]
