The Atheists United Group of San Luis Obispo has started an elementary after school club to counter the good news clubs. I think this is wonderful idea. We need more atheist normalcy in the world. A counter to these good news clubs is a good step in securing a future of rational and informed thinkers. […]

The Trump opposition to the media is dangerous to the very idea of democracy. This is due to the media’s role in keeping the people informed. At times, they may fail at this endeavor. Yet, the shortcomings of particularly partisan media outlets does not condemn it entirely. In fact, if there was any institution we […]

The winter celebrations are times when christian privilege is paraded through the streets, on TV, and most insidiously in public schools. The public schools are the most problematic. There is no reference to Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Dongzhi, or any other solstice celebration. It is like they own the winter solstice and the rest are just copies. […]

  People will look around at all of this devastation that hit Gatlinburg, and say where are all the atheists and humanists. Where were they when all of these people needed help? No one sees any atheists and humanists there because in the south it is social, political, and financial suicide. We were all over […]

I walk slowly through the streets, carefully watching the reactions of others. One mis-step could be devastating. I must blend in. They will not harm me if I am one of them.

The first day of school is a time that brings joy to parents. The parents get to see their child learning and the beginnings of growing up. This is a time to spend nights helping with homework and playing games to help study for upcoming tests. This is a time of change and growth, but […]

The recent tragedy in Orlando that claimed the lives of 49 people is on the minds of most of America and across the world.

Reason Rally 2016 may have shown how fractured the atheist movement in this country has become. Or maybe fractured is the wrong word. Many atheists seem to be content with just living their lives free of dogma. Their lives may be in such a state where the chains of religion don’t directly present a challenge […]

The christian badge of honor. Living in Tennessee, I have seen the impact of religion on the lives of so many. It is a badge of honor here. You can walk into most places and announce proudly, ” I’m christian “, and be immediately granted status. The christian label is every where. It’s on the […]
