Quebec Mennonite school shutting down

The Quebec government has threatened legal action against a group of Mennonites who operate a small school in the little town of Roxton Falls. The school, which does not teach the theory of evolution, and which relies heavily on the Bible for all of its classes, has no accredited teachers, and their programs have not been provincially approved. The religious group has therefore decided to uproot themselves, ...

A continued correspondence

A few days ago, I posted a letter I sent to my Christian counterpart. Here is his reply, and my answer to him: Dear goodatheist, Thanks for replying. I just read everything you said and I agree on some issues with you. I also can understand why you became an atheist. If I was probably in your position I would become one too because of the bad experience and of the education the Greek Mythology class. I also ...

Answering why I’m an atheist

I received an interesting little letter, and I thought it might be a good idea to post it on the site to let others know how I feel about my atheist views "Hey, how's it going? My name is Anthony I was browsing around and saw you profile [on myspace.com]. I have a question. Just curious, why did you decide to become an atheist? What convince you that there is not a God?" Hi Anthony, If you'd like to hear th ...

Nigerian cross-dressers face possible execution

A group of 18 men in Northern Nigeria are facing a possible death sentence for taking part in a gay wedding. The men were dressed as women, and were promptly arrested for alleged sodomy. Unfortunately for them, the town of Bauchi is under Sharia law, and so the men face the possibility of being stoned to death. For those of you unaware of what Sharia law is, in Arabic it translates directly to the way. It ...

‘Right to Life’ group protests HPV vaccines

There are so few hard core right wing religious groups in Canada you can sometimes forget they exist at all. In typical Canadian fashion, most religious organizations are reluctant to get involved in any politics, and prefer not to make a fuss. However, a new proposed program has one province's Right to Life group up in arms. Newfoundland is facing some opposition for wanting to offer vaccines for HPV to yo ...

Coming out godless

One of my readers pointed me to an interesting project she started, called Coming out Godless. Her challenge is for individuals to talk about how they themselves began to understand that their belief of God was simply false. I visited it recently, and must admit I find the idea fascinating. I highly encourage people to go to her site and submit any story you find funny, tragic, or even educational. Persona ...

Conservative pizza mogul builds new Eden

I don't spend a lot of time wondering where my money goes when I buy food. I figure it's going to the employees, the owner of the franchise, and whatever is left goes to some obscure CEO locked up in an office, counting his money. I always figured these guys were like Scrooge; they made you work in the cold, giving you as little time off to spend with your invalid son as possible. It never occurred to me so ...

CNN attempts to debate atheism

I saw this video, and was unaware of CNN's attempt to discuss whether or not atheists were being discriminated against. Nevermind the fact that as a news organization; they are far more interested in making money from advertisers than in displaying any journalistic muscle, this so called 'panel' was populated entirely by individuals who were themselves believers. You might as well have a panel of southerner ...

Christian rationalist points blaming finger at atheists

Let's face it; we're used to being generally despised; it's so unsurprising, in fact, that when I fell upon this site, www.christianfaithandreason.com, I practically glossed over the familiar rhetoric of atheists are deluded and wrong. Had I done so, I would have missed the opportunity to read an article by the obscure author of Letters to a Christian Nation: Counterpoint. Although the title may sound lik ...
