In Defense of Religious Belief

The Harris Poll about religious adherence was released a little over a week ago. In a report that surprised none of us at WWJTD but shook certain of our neighbors to the core, it determined that adherence to religious belief is dropping significantly. Well, significantly for a drop in religious belief, anyway. It’s a small [Read More...]

My brother suffered through healthcare.gov…for 15 minutes.

I posted before about my parents signing up for the Affordable Care Act.  My bro just went through it himself: I tried to sign up for the ACA.  The website told me that I qualified for free healthcare, but that Kansas hadn’t expanded the program there.  It’s probably to protect freedom or something like that.

Chip Wedge swings by the blog, gets owned by dad and others.

A true blue Christian by the moniker “Chip Wedge” found an old post of mine and was not happy.  He expressed his displeasure in the form of Pascal’s Wager, ALL CAPS, and empty threats: If you would like to spend eternity in hell that is your free choice. But what is going to be the [Read More...]

Why does an atheist celebrate Christmas?

My life…  I get asked this all the time!  Maybe I just need to accept that the answer to everybody else isn’t as obvious as it appears to me.  Or maybe I need to accept that people are just regurgitating what they hear in church.  I just don’t understand how people don’t get to, “Hrm…he’s [Read More...]

Father on “attacking Christians”.

Dad is spreading holiday cheer by jousting with right wingers in the comment section of our local paper.  This one, I thought, was particularly good: FREDDY BOEN says, “Just because one chooses to be an atheist does not give him the right to attack Christians, for this nation was founded on the principle that man [Read More...]

Uganda passes massive anti-gay bill.

Uganda passed a massive anti-gay bill last week.  Christians in America responded by caring more about one bearded bigot’s “freedom of speech” than about the right of gay people to not spend their entire lives in a fucking cage for loving a consenting adult. Uganda’s parliament has just voted (Friday) on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill (also [Read More...]

Open letter to the defenders of Phil Robertson.

Phil Robertson defenders, which include your standard list of deeply Republican people who purport to stand for decency even while insisting gays and atheists are a threat to the well-being of the world (Huckabee, Jindal, Palin, etc.), piss me off to no end.  It’s not that I give a good god damn about the opinions [Read More...]

Judge strikes down Utah’s anti gay marriage law. Mormons become sad pandas.

Booyah! A federal judge struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban Friday in a decision that brings a nationwide shift toward allowing gay marriage to a conservative state where the Mormon church has long been against it. The Salt Lake County clerk’s office started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Deputy Clerk Dahnelle Burton-Lee said the [Read More...]

American Atheists challenges NY state senator Andrew Lanza to boycott his own district.

Recall the nasty things Lanza said about atheists and the boycott he called for in Times Square on account of a very mild billboard put up by American Atheists?  Initially, AA fired back pretty hard: “In two weeks, a million people are going to descend on Times Square for the 110th anniversary of the ball [Read More...]
