Atheists Are So Angry!

Religious freedom

I gotta admit… in between swimming laps every morning, playing with my son every evening and hiking the gorgeous trails around my town every weekend, it’s hard to make time to be angry. You know, sometimes writing self-deprecating jokes on Twitter, and coming up with funny religious puns for my posts just get in the

Every Atheist Needs: The Monster of Florence

The Monster of Florence

Ok, so this is more of a “Everybody needs” than it is a “Every Atheist Needs”, because it really has nothing to do with atheism. Perhaps, there’s a slight relationship to skepticism, but this book is a must-read for anyone who loves a good true crime story, atheists, theists, the gullible and skeptics alike. The

On Being An Atheist Blogger Today

Avijit Roy

I’m pretty small potatoes. I have an amazing group of readers who are incredibly supportive, but compared to say, Hemant Mehta or PZ Meyers, I’m pretty small potatoes. Despite the fact that I am pretty small potatoes, I have had death threats. They are few and far between, and I really don’t get the sense

Jesus Has A Boyfriend!

Preston's Sprinkles

I think the last person on Earth any of us would have expected to find coveting thy neighbour’s backdoor is Jesus. I mean, his followers spew hatred for the gays on the daily. They vote against same-sex marriage, they protest with hatey signs at Pride, they refuse to provide the floral arrangements for gay weddings

Lethal Injection

This is part 4 in a series attempting to debunk the arguments for the death penalty. Read the other parts here. In January, 2014, in Ohio, Dennis McGuire gasped, his stomach heaved violently and his fists clenched through 25 minutes of a botched execution. In horror, an audience and a team of executioners watched a

I Need Your Help

SOS

I’m sure some of you have noticed that recently my web site has been performing poorly. It’s slow, it lags and sometimes it returns an error and won’t even let you in. I’ve been in contact with my hosting provider on multiple occasions and have had them pretty much just tell me that I need

I Never Thought My Huffington Post Debut Would Be For This

Huff Post

The other day I read a post by Kelly James Clark, called Is Atheism Evil? No stranger to provocative titles, I clicked and read the whole thing before calling the fella a tool. You know Godless Mom… self-editing is not my strong suit. The beginning of his post is satirical. Of course he does not believe
