A+, RadFems and The ‘New McCarthyism’

“Joe McCarthy and his Senate hearings were like witch hunts.” – Desi Arnaz Back in the 1950’s, Senator Joe McCarthy made a rather infamous name for himself by making accusations of treason, disloyalty and subversion without the benefit of evidence. It was ‘guilt by association,’ of the worst kind. Many people lost jobs and had…

Godless – A Film About Regular People

Probably the best twenty bucks you’ll spend this year… It was toward the end of last year that my good friend, Kelli Cooke, invited the members of our Freethought Group (Fayette Freethought Society) to a private screening of a movie she directed.  Circumstances did not allow me to stay for the entire screening, but Kelli…

The theist believes that god is the only source of morality…

None So Blind As The Holy See

Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen told his Australian congregation that atheism is not the rational philosophy that it claims to be. He gave an oxymoronic Easter address where he said that Christianity has proved to be both vulnerable and hardy in the last century.  He stated, “Last century we tried godlessness on a grand scale and…

Why I Abandoned My Faith and Loathe Religion

I tried.  Really, I honestly tried to be a good Christian. When I was a young man I dove into the faith with both feet. I studied endlessly, sponging up everything I could.  I attended classes at the local Seminary and by the time I was Ordained as a Southern Baptist Minister, I had amassed…
