Where as each individual state maintained some level of sovereignty, while being under the limited control of a federal body. We exercise our power as a republic through democratic elections, to elect representatives for each state in the federation. The flaw […]

  In god we trust on cop cars In god we trust has been displayed on cop cars in Tennessee. This seems to be a violation of church and state, as law enforcement should not be showing a preference, or promoting a specific religious belief. These organizations are intended to be secular and to aid […]

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. […]

I am sure at some point every atheist has heard someone call them arrogant. It is weird that we would be called the arrogant ones.

  The 2016 elections shocked so many. The media told us that there is no way that Trump could win, and on election night that mindset lost the election for Hillary. Everyone seems to be looking for what to blame for this upset. Some blame the DNC for not putting up an electable candidate. Some […]

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. Just keep up the same conversations, normal conversations, that no one will find suspicious. I will be safe as long as I limit […]
