I have started to get a little more theist friendly but understand where this article is coming from. I choose to approach believers with logical questions and gentle requests for knowledge of their position followed by more questions based in logic. Call someone a fucking idiot and they immediately close off the debate.
One of the best written articles on WordPress, and one of the most relevant.
Nothing is wrong with the need to understand about one’s distance past; one’s history. The eagerness to learn about our African past is real and alive in Grenada. Africa’s great past and contributions to civilization are discussed among many young people looking for a new narrative that speaks to their nature. Their Africanness! No educational institution, I know of, on the island, imparts such education. Thus, organizations like Rastafari become an appetizing resource. Not only that, many of these young people seek to sever themselves from the Euro-centric religions that continue to define their cultural and religious experiences. Consequently, many of these young Grenadians often find themselves part of black organizations framed within an Afro-centered cultural and theistic worldviews, but are organizations as divisive and as irrational as the ones they seek to leave. Take this black organization that caught the attention of a Grenadian friend of mine.

I feel sorry for those poor ignorant people who have bought that foolish indoctrination. Religion truly demonstrates that a sucker is born every minute.
When Ebola Came to Church (Liberia)
Reading this NYT article about a church in Liberia that was hit hard by Ebola, I reflected back to the time I was a Pentecostal like these folks. . .
You believe that “With God, All Things are Possible.”
You believe that “Jesus is the Great Healer.”
You believe that “Prayer–especially speaking in a Heavenly Language–can do Anything.”
You believe that raising your hands and waving them is the best way to
get God’s attention “Praise the Lord.”
You believe that “I am FILLED with the Holy Spirit (so the God of the Universe is especially interested in ME, speaks directly to ME and will heal ME whenever I ask–unless He wants to teach me a Lesson. . .
or has something better to do“).
You believe that “We have Victory over Evil and the Devil (the cause of disease).”

I fucking love this video!
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. —
Fuck this jihadist asshole and a speedy death for his evil ass. Glad that you have to live with the fact that you ran over your own brothers ass while running away from the cops, you fucking cowardly asshole! Die you evil fuck.
Fat Josh, the fairy dust fucker. Turn your cap around and try rapping for Jeebus
So this man Joshua Feuerstein on his Facebook page is promoting this shirt. He claims it is banned and he cannot show what is on it for fear it will be banned again.
Of course if you are not a blind puppet of his you quickly see the link in his posting takes you to a site that will create a shirt for your fund raisers…
Yes he is creating a fake panic among his followers by selling a t-shirt not sold in stores cause it was created on a fund raising site.
Earlier this model citizen claimed guillotines were being bought by the US government to behead Christians like the bible says…now naturally if you look there is zero evidence of this.
This guy was a joke, but I don’t think so anymore, he is dangerous, his cult following will get people hurt. Be glad you live in…

Fuck Ken Hammbone and his complete ignorance
Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.
Just a question, to ponder. Have you stopped proclaiming his name?
Since so many of us know that He is Alive And working, lets proclaim his name and make this sign so true!
Let me sum up here with the basic assumptions presented by AiG.
1. The bible they read is true.
2. Any conflicts with number 1 must be altered to include over lapping rulers and altering dating methods, altering outside historical documents including those done by the engineers.
3. print results.
When you start with the answer you want, you will twist data to fit it, so in that spirit I will prove Ken Ham is a moron.
1. Ken Ham is a moron
2. Everything Ken Ham says seems stupid to me and when it is not I must refer to number one.
3. Ken Ham must be a moron.
I to, was the brunt of an abusive parent. I lived on the street from 9 to 18 and got off due to hard work and sheer will. I have recently learned to pity my mother instead of hate her because it’s better for me, not her. I know about oppression as well and things need to change to include equality for everyone, not just the privileged.
I’m not black, and I’ve never been persecuted for my skin color. But. I know what it’s like to endure years of unrelenting abuse at the hands of power.
If you’ve never experienced it, if your mind can’t grasp the scale, then maybe this personal story will help you understand.
My mother beat the shit out of me from 3 to 13. CRUNCH! There’s no suitable onomatopoeia for the sound of an adult’s hand belting a child across the face. There’s no word that describes what it’s like to feel your cartilage ring. She’d backhand me across the face for nothing, out of nowhere. She’d beat me with whatever was handy — spoon, belt, hand — and she’d always scream at me that it was my fault. I made her do it. There was always a reason, always a transgression. “You’re only hurting yourself!” CRACK!
By the time I was…
