Patton Oswalt to Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins: It’s OK To Be an Atheist, But Not To Be a Jerk

It's not ok to be an accomodationist douche either, you hack excuse for a comedian...not when there are moral tyrants in this country ready to use religion as a weapon to deny human rights for minority populations, not when there is a concerted propaganda campaign against human rights for gay people in places like Uganda and Russia, not when largely theocratic societies make a habit of keeping women down in the name of religion.

Case in point - Ikea Closes Website In Russia Over Gay-Propaganda Law

So please Mr. Oswalt, complain a little more about the big bad meanie Atheists...because there certainly aren't bigger problems in the world these days... :facepalm:

‘God’s Not Dead’ To Get ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Treatment At American Atheists Convention

The only way to make a bad joke bearable is with a hefty dose of satire and ridicule...

3

The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous

I've never had a problem with alcohol so I can't speak to the struggles but I have heard people in my local Atheist circle complain about the excessive religiosity of AA.

4

Arizona judges can’t do only opposite-sex marriages, ethics opinion says

It's really sucks when you have to treat people fairly, doesn't it...?

5

Rising 'Nones' Show Americans Losing Their Religion

And it's worth every penny that no longer goes to serve a religious cause. :clap:

CFI Criticizes Saudi Arabia’s Hypocrisy on Religious Freedom at UN Human Rights Council

A Human Rights conference in Saudi Arabia is the same as a gas can and matches in the hands of a pyro... BAD IDEA!

Apologies if this edition feels a bit rushed but I'm on my way to bed and I needed to wrap it up as quickly as possible. Plus, I just didn't have the patience needed to get through some of the lengthier, more interesting articles. You'll have to check the archives for those once the SCA has them posted.

Nothing is Popular Without Popular Consent...

"Nostradamus did for bullshit what Stonehenge did for rocks." - Cecil Adams

My name is J. I'm a 30-something loon who doesn't quite know where all the pieces fit, nor do I even know if they are all in the box... I'm an Atheist of the Antitheist variety. What this means is that I reject any and all god claims (as an Atheist) and I stand against all expressions of religion within the human sphere (as an Antitheist). Additionally, I am active in my local Atheist/Humanist scene and support social equality in the broad sense. Anything I can do under the law should be available to all reasonable Americans regardless of circumstance. I take great exception to the notion that bigotry, racism, homophobia and any other defects of the human condition can be justifiable so long as they fall under the aegis (that means shield...) of religious freedom. Also, I would prefer to live in a world where people discuss their social responsibilities and not just the things to which they feel they have a right.

A quote (rather, a paraphrase...) of mine from a recent discussion - "In order for freedom of expression to properly live up to the mission for which it was devised, that of emboldening the human spirit, freedom of religion needs to be curtailed to a certain degree. Basically, I advocate for a prohibition on any acts or deeds in the name of religion that adversely interfere with the dignity of individuals in their everyday lives and the basic humans rights to which they are entitled."

Sayings -

"Everyone is born human. No one is born religious. HUMAN RIGHTS come first."

"Nothing is more dangerous in the wrong hands than faith."

"Opinions are meaningless without credible facts to support them."

"The line between protecting liberty and enforcing tyranny is measured by the number of jackboots on the ground and sticks in hand."

A minor ode to Spin City-

"Four seasons pass and cold is still cold
and the wind chills my bones in the night.
The end doesn't come, it wont
until I've cried tears from both eyes." -J

I think that you should have comments allowed on all your art to allow further open discussion on the ideas you post.
