Can an Atheist Get Elected in Texas?

Seriously, what are Aron Ra’s chances for being elected as an open atheist in Texas? Anecdotally, we encountered these signs on our way back from Austin to interview former Democratic Texas State Senator,  ex-gubernatorial candidate, and role model -Wendy Davis. One of the more vocal constituents of Manheim, TX proudly displayed this on their property: A […]

What if David Dao had given up his seat?

How would the situation have changed if David Dao had given up his seat for United crewmembers as he was ordered to? Let’s start with the obvious. Obviously, he wouldn’t have gotten manhandled by airport police. Though the violence used to remove an elderly man wasn’t justified.  Yes. He wouldn’t now require surgery. In an hourlong news […]

Target loses significant business because of trans-friendly bathrooms

Unfortunately, it appears bigotry is a good business strategy as boycotts of Chick-fil-a for donating money to organizations that opposed same-sex marriage caused the opposite of the intended effect. Sales to Chick-fil-a actually soared 14 percent (edit)after the company defiantly supported the “biblical definition of marriage.” To make matters worse, a business, like Target, taking a pro-LGBTQ equality […]

If you needed another reason to go to Reason Rally…

More than a few atheists (unfortunately), who are angry at Reason Rally for standing up for Reproductive Rights and LGBTQ equality, are refusing to go.   I can’t say I will miss the unwarranted hostility because there will be plenty from creationists like Ray Comfort. Aron posted a video commenting on the diversity of viewpoints despite what anti-feminists […]

The Hateful Voter

Although support for same-sex marriage has risen from 39 percent in 2001 to 55 percent in 2015, GOP candidates are still running their homophobic credentials to court evangelical voters. Republicans face an aging base at the polls that lags behind the country in same-sex marriage acceptance at 32 percent. Religious belief also plays a role […]

Both Parties are the Same! #1 FLPCB HHSC 15-03 , also known as Conscience Protection for Private Child-Placing Agencies

Voter turnout during the US midterm elections was pathetic. There was a definite lack of critical thinking and due diligence evidenced by opposing Republicans, Libertarians, and apathetic liberals in the “Freethought” movement, who repeated the soul sucking canards “Both Parties are the Same” and “It’s a Broken System” during the mid term elections. Aron and I […]
