Study shows not all Atheists are the same

  The 6 Types of Atheists and Non-Believers in America By Amanda Marcotte Researchers polled non-believers to find out who abandons religion and why. The answers tell us a lot about religion and non-belief in America. With the rising number of people in America—now nearly one in five—who have no religious affiliation at all, more people are asking questions about who exactly these unbelievers are. Not all of them identify as atheist or agnostic or a non-believer, but ... Full Story

The Bible tells me so

The Bible tells me so

  Dalai Lama, Jason Collins, Leviticus and You. By Robert De Filippis From the Dalai lama, "The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. How much am I doing about my anger, attachment, hatred, pride and jealousy? These are the things which we must check in our daily lives." Let's see, how can we fracture that advice this week? Oh, Oh, I know, let's criticize and condemn Jason Collins for being the first openly gay NBA Player. Hey, while we're at ... Full Story

Worst reactions to Sandy Hook shootings?

Worst reactions to Sandy Hook shootings?

  6 Worst Reactions to the Newtown Massacre By Jeff Fecke The horror of the massacre in Newtown, Conn. is still fresh, and yet already, there are people out making fools of themselves in its wake. It’s not particularly surprising that gun fetishists would be resisting calls to consider — just consider — some reasonable changes in gun safety policies. But that’s not what elevates a reaction to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School to truly reprehensible. No, the ... Full Story

Religious Conviction

Religious Conviction

  I’ve been avoiding this subject publicly. There are many who refuse to accept any responsibility to their maker, and many more that were not properly introduced. Some have been lured in to corrupted versions of reality. The rest of us are still learning. I write to the majority of Americans called Christians.

A Catholic responds

A Catholic responds

        I received an email from my relative regarding our Catholic faith. The email contained a paid political advertisement produced by church members entitled "Test of Fire: Election 2012". I want to share my response: I believe, as our forefathers did, that you do not mix politics and religion. If you do, then the religious institution is indulging in political persuasion and should be taxed. I find it incredible in today's society that the church ... Full Story

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

  How Joseph Stalin Invented 'American Exceptionalism' Rick Santorum and the rest of GOP presidential gang all have a man-crush. Considering he was an outright intellectual elitist, a shaggy-haired liberal, and -- horror of horrors -- French, the object of their adoration seems a bit surprising, but the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville and his 1835 United States travelogue, Democracy in America, have surged into national politics this campaign cycle -- often linked to the ...
