An atheist life: Adam’s story

Here's a short one from Adam in Pennsylvania: Hello, my name is Adam and I live in PA. I saw recently saw the post on The Good Atheist and decided to share the sorted [sic] road that led me to my lack of faith. First I feel its necessary to explain my family background. Both of my parents are very religious Protestants and my grandmother is a devout Catholic. The rest of my family though is not the least bi ...

Don’t make laws you haven’t thought about

It's almost uncomfortable to watch these people trying in vain to answer the question "If abortion was illegal, what should be done about women who violate this law?". One woman simply wanted women who have had abortions to feel bad about. Well, I'm not aware of any woman who has exercised this option who did not at least wrestle with the decision. Many women I know are still upset by the decision. One girl ...

What hell listens to

This one is from Atheist Media Blog. Considering how terrible rap is these days, I'm sure if there was hell, this is what would be playing. Is it just me or did the good old days of rap end when it started involving lots of money? ...

An atheist life: Simon’s story

Simon was one of the first people to write to me with his story, and was one of the inspirations behind this whole 'atheist life' section. I wanted to understand what it was like growing up in Northern Ireland. Here's his story: For 18 years of my life, I lived in Northern Ireland. Most people don't even know that Northern Ireland is a wholly different country to Ireland. For a seemingly small piece of land ...

An atheist life: Jeff’s story

I've been getting a lot of emails with people wanting to share their stories of atheism. I want to make sure every single one of them gets enough time and exposure for people to really sink their teeth into. I am amazed at just how open, trusting, and honest all of you have been while telling us about your lives. It is this kind of attitude and behavior that makes me truly believe human beings look to conne ...

An atheist life: Jack’s story

As some of you may know, I decided to invite all of you to share your stories about being an atheist. I hate to admit it, but my own story is just not that interesting. Atheist parents and their wisdom to let me chose for myself what I would believe made me the man I am today. But not every atheist life is as plain. I think there are compelling stories that have yet to be told, and this new section is inten ...

The Catholic Church needs to be abandoned

I want to send out a clear message today about the Catholic Church. I know many Catholics are feeling persecuted, brow beaten, and tired of all of the bad press they've been getting recently. It doesn't help matters when your Pope quotes a Byzantine Emperor who claimed that Islam was spread by holy war. If you think that's bad, you need to sit down to hear this staggeringly horrible piece of news: Pope Bene ...

Share your stories

A couple of podcasts ago, I asked my listeners to send in their mailbag questions, and invariably, a vast majority of the responders sent in not only questions, but also a little blurb about their own experiences in the sectarian world. I found all of them to be compelling, and I've realized atheism isn't only about my story, but the story of every person who's ever chosen not to believe. I'm asking any of ...

Sucks to live in Alaska

Ryan sent me this link from The Daily Dish, which I found more than a little disturbing. It's a lawsuit brought on by 35 people who were abused by their priests and are suing the Catholic Church for using their remote villages as a dumping ground for pedophiles. The suit numbers over 300 victims, the majority of which happened between the 1960s and 70s. It seems as though these locations were targeted becau ...

Love can be dangerous

This video, from Crooks and Liars, sums up nicely what kind of man Rick Warren is. At first you might be outraged that he is inspired by Nazi Germany to get his followers to be as dedicated as they were. He defends this statement only by saying Hitler is the personification of evil, and to him, it's enough. No further discussion needed. What Rick doesn't realize, and what most people seem to forget, is the ...
