    The Ten Oppressions

    Bear with me...there's some boring history involved. There was a bit of controversy a while back about putting up the Ten Commandments on the courthouse lawn in *Somewhere,U.S.A.  I have sided with the "whiners" or at least so we we're called.     Don't get me wrong...

    You Don't Know The Truth And Other Limitations Of Our Species

    Lets shed a little Zen and address some statements which I base my opinion on and claims on ! Claim One: "The Bible is evidence of what is in the Christian doctrine. The Bible, however, is based on faith. Faith is not based in evidence." This isn't all that true is it...

    Ignorance

    Since bigotry is hatred of a person for belonging to a group and for no other reason, it is wrong. Lets not confuse disagreements or problems on a personal level with bigotry. People are allowed to disagree. They are allowed to hate you for waking them up at night with loud...

    Gay Marriage

    I have yet to see a person against gay marriage who didn't base their arguments on prejudice.  It bothers me that religion can still be cited in our government as reasons for denying a basic civil right.  I have hope that the nation will soon realize the unconstitutionality of...

    Lies Christains Like Telling Themselves

    Feminist Bigotry

    What's Wrong With Feminism? Posted in contraeverything's blog 2008-12-14 A very foolish attorney recently remarked to me, "Feminism died in the 80's." If only.... In fact, feminism is very much alive today. So alive that it is pervasive. So pervasive that we do not even...

    Response To Fundamentalism

    I agree. Fundamentalism is at the very least intellectually dishonest, no matter where it comes from.  Fundamentalism used to make negative opinions would be prejudiced.This is why I'm an Agnostic.

    Claiming anything without any evidence to back it up is to do so in ignorance.  Claiming something in ignorance is prejudice.
