Atheists Are Patriotic

Here in the USA, god and country are intertwined in an often sickening manner.  The Teabaggers are often a perfect example (warning, the website has really cheesy audio).  The herd mentality of religion and ultra-patriotism (I think nationalism is a better word) go hand in hand.  But these mindsets crush the dissenters and discourage individual thought.  Atheists  support the freedoms of the constitution , especially the 1st amendment which was best interpreted by founding father Thomas Jefferson as “building a wall of separation between Church & State.”

In America, Religion Should Be Taxed Out of Existence.

The government has successfully reduced smoking by taxing tobacco, why not do the same with religion?  It would solve the deficit problem and make religion an honest player in the political arena.

Of Course He Is Appealing!

Of course John Freshwater is appealing his termination and I am thrilled.  I hope it drags out as long as possible.  Everyone needs to see how willful ignorance, stubbornness and RELIGION go hand in hand.  Plus I suspected he was up to something because he hasn’t yet gone on Glenn Beck and / or the right wing Christian martyr circuit to beg for more money and sympathy.

On This Day in 1484

One of the many benefits of membership in the ffrf is a daily email from them in the form of a “Freethought of the Day.”  Below is a sample.

On this date in 1484, Pope Innocent VIII’s notorious “Witches Bull” (Bull Summis desiderantes) was issued, officially commencing the witchhunts. Historians estimate that victims put to death as a result ranged from 600,000 to more than 9 million, over the 250 years of the witchhunts.

From Freethought of the Day, compiled by Annie Laurie Gaylor

 

If you haven’t checked out this very worthwhile group, you really should.  They are working hard to protect the first amendment of the US Constitution.
