Not much to say here. Things are pretty much the same as they were before, apart from the fact that I stood outside the recent Iowa Fundie Freedom Summit in protest with my fellow heathens last Saturday. Of course, after seeing a video excerpt of Sarah Palin's speech...let's just say I haven't the words. Twit just doesn't do that woman justice... :facepalm:

Slamming Science: Pat Robertson Claims Evolution Is To Blame For Lack Of Miracles In America

I take comfort in the fact that the more bullshit this asshole spews, the less seriously people take him as a public figure. I take even greater comfort in the fact that he'll be dead soon... :nod:

And this, boys and girls, is why the RFRA needs to be removed from the legal code. When bigoted fucks are allowed to use the law to institutionalize their vile bullshit, it debases us all and spits in the eye of reason.

Top academics volunteer to take 100 lashes for Raif

While I applaud the effort, what should really be taking place here is that the religious cunts who are forcing the lashings should be made to, um, I don't know...NOT FUCKING ADMINISTER THE LASHINGS!!!!!!!

Endnote

Just another day for you and me in paradise, or so the lyric goes. Of course, the point of the song is that people tend to ignore the unpleasant (and blatantly obvious) aspects of reality they encounter on a daily basis. I'm not going to dive into scare-monger territory but I really do feel like certain things are coming to head in this country of ours and if reasonable people grow too complacent then bad shit is bound to occur. Be vigilant, be aware, be ready. Reason may call you to its defense at any time...

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

Don't see why you can't take constructive criticism on your pro-atheist pictures.

It's not that I can't take constructive criticisms, it's that I'm done with suffering through the headaches that come with ignorant and naive repudiations from religious people. I mean, if most people actually understood the proper definition of 'constructive criticism', to say nothing of the actual meaning of the word 'evidence', there wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, social networks aren't known for promoting competent intellect and constructive discourse.
