Raging Against the Dark


  A couple of days ago, I announced on Twitter my intentions to not blog for a while. The truth is, friends, I’ve hit a wall. The last several months have been nothing but heartache and sturm und drang for me. Losing a good friend to cancer, battling the injustices of a a corrupt landlord … Continue reading

Red Eye: Get Juan Williams!


Poor Juan Williams. It isn’t enough National Public Radio dumped him for having the poor taste to be honest about his feelings. No, now the Left must vilify him, as if he was a disavowed CIA operative, cut loose in Eastern Europe sometime in the early 80’s. As Greg Gutfeld mentioned in tonight’s “Greg-Alogue,” the … Continue reading

Bioethics and End of Life Questions


I’ve been feeling a little philosophical of late. OK, so I always feel a little philosophical. Recent events have caused me to be even more so. Consequently, bored on a Thursday night and browsing the list of available, streaming Netflix programming, I cam across a National Geographic Explorer episode entitled “Moment of Death.” This short … Continue reading

Can an Atheist Have a Crisis of Faith?


If you’ve read anything I’ve had to say about religion, you probably know I identify as an atheist. While I’ve come out in strong support of religious freedom – up to and including teaching biblical creationism in school (just not in science classrooms) – I’ve always maintained a distance between myself and religious expression. Well, … Continue reading

Red Eye: Separation of MA and Reality – Children Pray in Terrorist Mosque


It appears a school in Massachusetts got into a wee bit of trouble after a videotape emerged of a recent field trip to a local mosque. In May, Wellesley Middle School 6th and 7th graders visited the Islamic Society of Boston Community Center. During their field trip, students, teachers and chaperons were separated by gender, … Continue reading

Feisal to America: Build the Mosque or Face the Consequences


First, it was all about bridge building. The Cordoba House community center and totally not a mosque was all about reaching out to the West to build ties between the Muslim community and larger America. “We’re totes against terrorists and stuff,” said Imam Rauf. “We’re even going to build a museum to the 9/11 attacks … Continue reading

Burning the Qur’an


On September 11, 2010, a small church in Gainesville, Florida is planning an organized burning of the Muslim holy book, The Qur’an. The burning is to mark the anniversary of the 9/11/2001 attacks against the US by Islamic terrorists. Of course, everyone – including General David Petraeus – is worried the burning will endanger the … Continue reading

My Moral Compass


Recently, a fellow blogger asked some tough philosophical questions regarding Natural Law. It’s my basic contention that morality isn’t universal. It’s hers that it is. We come from very different perspectives, and one of the things she had trouble with was finding an atheist willing or able to discuss his moral underpinnings. In other words, … Continue reading

What is a Social Conservative? And Do They Hate Gays?


My most recent post at NewsReal Blog has raised some interesting questions. For me, at least. The biggest question is this: what does it mean to be a social conservative? That question is quickly followed by: if I’m not a social conservative, does that mean I’m not a conservative at all? And the third: who … Continue reading

WorldNetDaily has dropped Ann Coulter from a speaking engagement at their “Taking America Back National Conference” after she agreed to be the keynote speaker at this year’s “Homocon,” a conference for gay conservatives sponsored by the group GOProud. Says WND CEO, Joseph Farah: Ultimately, as a matter of principle, it would not make sense for … Continue reading
