Go to: An Update from Christopher Hitchens

I hope that Mr. Hitchens's treatment is completely successful with as few adverse side effects as possible.

I will be starting a course of chemotherapy and immunotherapy for lymphoma next week, so it is easy for me to empathize with Mr. Hitchens.

I hope to hear good news on this topic in the future!

Go to: Panel discussion on atheism where no atheists are included

zb24601's Avatar Jump to comment 152 by zb24601

The two women on the panel, and to a slightly lesser extent the man on the panel are prime examples or the problems faced by atheists. If this had been about discrimination about any group other than atheists, a comment like "they need to shut up" would not have been made, let alone tolerated.

The US is NOT a christian nation, it is a nation of people who are mostly christian. That is, for the most part, the people are christian, but the government is to stay out of religion totally.

Removing religion from public schools was as much to protect the religious as the non-religious. Trying to remove "Under God" from the pledge and "In God We Trust" from the money is just trying to get the government to abide by the constitution.

It is things like this report that make me fear where the United States is headed. Dominionists are trying to take over in this country and become a Christian Taliban. So I guess I should start looking for a new country!
