Monday School: Is it finally time to tax the Churches?

 
It’s Monday! It’s Monday! It’s time once again for Monday School! Another installment of the ‘Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday!

This week, I’m going to tackle an interesting question: Do the Churches as we see them today function as a charity or a business?

This subject came to me because of an event I was invited to last weekend but was unable to attend. Various atheists in the city were invited to attend a conversation that was to take place at an RC Church between their people and some non-believers. The purpose of the event was according to the organizers was to ‘foster mutual understanding and friendship among believers and non-believers through conversation, music and a social gathering’.

Rain, Birthdays and the Philharmonic Orchestra

I have Ethan this weekend and this should be a very fascinating if not very enjoyable two days with my boy. This morning my brother and his fiance came over for a birthday breakfast. Chris has to work at noon so this was the only time he could come over, so we made eggs, bacon and pancakes and then opened gifts afterwards. Ethan’s birthday was last week, but we held off until today to celebrate. Ethan enjoyed this unique celebration… but of course everything is better with bacon, even a birthday party.

Ethan’s first decade…

Today my oldest son turned ten years old. A full decade! Where did the time go?

It only feels like yesterday that I took Leah to the hospital two days before our scheduled c-section to deliver our first son on a Sunday morning. The night before Leah and I had went out to do dinner and a movie, knowing it would be a while before we could do that again. The next morning, her water broke and we were in two days early.

Why 46% Of Americans Suspect 9/11 Was An “Inside Job”

On this 12th Anniversary of what a lot of people (including myself) believe was an inside job, I am literally dumbfounded by people who are still drinking the kool aid that was served up the by the Bush administration all those years ago. I hope that one day the smoking gun evidence will eventually be found or someone will blow the whistle… cause that is what it is likely going to take for a lot of people to wake up and realize what really happened that day.

Monday School: Crazy things that are actually in the Bible!

 
All the kiddies are back in school… so it’s time for us to crack the books again as well. It’s time once again for Monday School! More of that ‘Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday!’

Today is going to be like show and tell. And entry where we’ll review something I am sure that a lot of Atheists are aware of, but shockingly enough… not many Christians are. People continuously ask myself and countless other Atheists to read the bible. That reading this book will explain everything to us and show us the way.

Please don’t be that girl…

 
This entry could get me into some hot water, but so be it.

I really don’t want to lecture people about the ‘boy who cried wolf’ but we are having some serious problem with ‘the girl who cried rape’… something that is become more common to the point where women are being charged and convicted for filing false reports.

Mint in case? Not anymore…

I had Ethan for a full week and it was a lot of fun having the little guy for that long. I really think he had a lot of fun as well. We hit fan expo, hung out with my brother Chris a few times. In all it was a fun seven days so it was sad to see the little guy go home when the week was over. He was well behaved most of the time and even his moments when he had them were very minor. He’s only been gone a day and I miss the little bugger already.
