Freedom Patriots vs Evildoers...

The photo speaks for itself and there is no point in disecting it any further than the internet has alrady done … What is bizarre is the right calling everyones reaction “intolerance” … ? in·tol·er·ant  adjective \-rənt\ : 1. unable or unwilling to endure 2. unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters And while Holly is exploiting every opportunity to cash in touting her bizarre taliban-like photo as a testimonial of traditional american values … she has been in no danger of losing her life (like abortion doctors) nobody has taken her voodoo temple (like mosques) nobody has legally designated her as a terrorist to circumnavigate her legal rights (like muslims) nobody has told her that her views disqualify her as an american (like atheists). All that did happen is the internet made an association … because Holly Fishers photo of her holding her bible and a machine gun in front of her American flag is very much like the photos militant extremists from other religions take with theirs. The punchline … many agree that the modern extreme right bare a striking resemblance to the jihadists they so openly openly claim to hate (fear). Consequently … Holly solidified a talking point and people laughed. HaHa. Heads aren’t exploding. Holly didn’t make the left ‘sad’. Nobody is treating her unfairly in life because of this. And the inability to rationalize hypocrisy doesn’t make her a victim. For once … just once, the right just needs to own...

Bitter irony as a measles epidemic breaks out at the anti-vaccine texas megachurch of Kenneth Copeland. Church officials are desperately back-peddling while putting down their bibles and turning to modern medical science to save them by offering free vaccinations to their constituency. Official statements involve placing blame on an unclean outsider and reinterpretations of ancient cultist manuals  to justify reversing their stance on medicine while carefully ensuring that all credit for it be given to witch doctors and not the science that created it. Its unfortunate that there isn’t a way to hold people to their convictions so when socially incompatible assholes like the folks at the Kenneth Copeland mega-church make the conscious decision to opt out of things like vaccine programs and herd immunity because of cultist beliefs and the rejection of truth, that we cant just let nature fix the problem. Perhaps in this case by handing them a bible instead of a needle and recommending that when it starts to hurt that they just pray harder. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/08/26/1234055/-Anti-vaccine-megachurch-hit-with-measles-epidemic-now-offering-free-vaccinations?detail=email     Related:...

GOP moves to eradicate 1st Amendment – nobody gets mad?...

http://www.newsmax.com/US/north-carolina-gop-religion/2013/04/03/id/497609 Republican politicians who fight proposals that would require the registration of lethal weapons, prohibit firearms at public schools and restrict public access to ‘military grade weaponry’ (as defined by Stanley McChrystal, leader of the US Military) on the basis of constitutionality and protection against tyrannical government … propose legislation to make N Carolina a Christian state (aka Theocracy). “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” – Amendment 1 Looking fwd to seeing the constitutionalists at Fox News, the NRA, and all the other fringe groups like the Oathkeepers who have feverishly rallied against the proponents of gun legislation (at least the ones with ‘D’ in front of their title) demonstrate their integrity by exerting the equal amount of effort in protesting the NC GOP for the preservation of the 1st amendment. Because it has nothing to do selling more guns or a black man being president.   Donate to the FFRF...

Religious ‘unaffiliation’ tops 19% Nov21

Religious ‘unaffiliation’ tops 19%...

    Per surveys conducted by the Pew Research Center 1 in 5 americans (19.6%) no longer have any religious affiliation. By historical comparison this percentage was 6% in 1990 and 15% in 2008. Survey involved 19,377 people and was taken over 2011.         Based on parallel studies by the Gallup Organization supporting a projected 1% annual (de)conversion rate as well as historical data from other non-secular societies, 50% of the global population will be Atheist by 2038. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nigel-barber/atheism-to-defeat-religion-by-2038_b_1565108.html   Counterargument: Critics of the survey question its accuracy on the basis of age and educational demographics, citing that it disproportionately reflected the views of younger age and higher education (lol). Religious activists also argue fundamentalists will successfully ‘out-breed’ the non-religious, despite 10% (and rising) abandonment rates.   Links: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/religion/story/2012-07-19/no-religion-affiliation/56344976/1 http://www.pewforum.org/Unaffiliated/nones-on-the-rise.aspx...
