I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Fact & fiction may be harder to distinguish for religious kids.

Let’s see.  You’re taught from birth that two people populated the whole planet, a talking snake and an apple made women second-class citizens for the rest of eternity, burning bushes can talk, invisible cloud people can get virgins pregnant, and one guy hanging from a plus sign suddenly absolves YOU from all your shady dealings, but we’re surprised that some kids can’t tell fact from fiction?

     Look at this photo. Because transporting millions of people to take them to “religion” is way easier than transporting a religion to millions of people….
Ugh.  Well I just feel guilty and disrespectful for being an atheist after all this Truth & Enlightenment has been thrust uponst me this mornin.  My ancestors died so I could be washed in the blood of European crimes against humanity for profit Our Lord Jesus, and here I go ignoring the Bible and denying the existence of a belief system solidified and bastardized by White people to conform to Western ideals and traditions.  How dare I. 
No but really.  I’ll never understand why Black people have clung so fervently to a faith that was forced upon us and used to justify our enslavement.  They broke us with chains and chained us to the Bible.  Four hundred years later and we still can’t find the damned key.

     Hobby Lobby got the ruling they wanted. Because corporations can have religious beliefs now.

In light of the recent Hobby Lobby ruling by the Supreme Corporate-Ass-Kissing Court of the United States, I thought it prudent to remind y’all what I had to say about this back in December 2012 when their case was proceeding through the lower courts.

Why is one company’s interpretation of the Bible more important than another?  If I wanted to use the Bible to fire all the Black people in my company, can I do so under the Supreme Court’s new ruling?  This is a hot ass mess.

     No matter what time I leave for work…

…I still end up on the same train in the same subway car with this African lady who thinks the best way to convert people to Jesus is to preach to them in broken English in an enclosed metal tube about the goodness of God.

Can God please give that woman a real job so she can get out of my face?  Can he give her some cocoa butter so her feet won’t look like she’s been shuttling slaves to freedom all morning?  Can he get her a hot oil treatment because just looking at her fried-up, thirsty ends dries my throat out?

     GA Republican Jody Hice: “Most people think Islam is a religion, it’s not. “

It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component. But it’s much larger. It’s a geo-political system that has governmental, financial, military, legal and religious components. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected (under U.S. law).”

(source)

Alright, let’s travel down this road of bigotry with him (because that’s what it is).  Let’s assume that he’s correct in his thinking, and because Islam encompasses so much more than picking a god and going to worship him once a week, it should not be protected under US law.

Fine.  We’ll need to get rid of Catholics as well.

     Texas GOP platform endorses conversion therapy for gays.

Someone explain to me again why any self-respecting gay man would want to join the Republican party, especially in Texas.  Now they’re “begging” conservatives to just let it go:

"I really beg my social conservative colleagues to let this issue go," said Rudy Oeftering, a Dallas businessman and vice president of the gay Republican group Metroplex Republicans. "It’s your opinion. It’s your belief — but it’s my life."

Grow a backbone, find some self-respect, stop choosing taxes and the military over your own worth, and find a group of people who do not hate you.  Look at this mess Republicans just threw into their official platform.

     This is why a lot of people hate atheists.

What should an atheist parent do if their child brings home a permission slip to attend a Christian presentation on the origins of Easter? 

Dear Darryl,

I have received your permission slip featuring what I can only assume is a levitating rabbit about to drop an egg on Jesus.

Thank you for pre-ticking the permission box as this has saved me not only from having to make a choice, but also from having to make my own forty five degree downward stroke followed by a twenty percent longer forty five degree upward stroke. Without your guidance, I may have drawn a picture of a cactus wearing a hat by mistake.

As I trust my offspring’s ability to separate fact from fantasy, I am happy for him to participate in your indoctrination process on the proviso that all references to ‘Jesus’ are replaced with the term ‘Purportedly Magic Jew.’

Regards, David

Please don’t do that.  You’re being a dick for no reason.  And it gets so much worse.

Suddenly, I feel this intense urge to get into some scripture.  I mean really *really* get down on my knees and get down deeeeeeeep into the Word.
