Would anyone want me to start using my instagram again?

I made one for this blog in August of 2016, never used it 😬😂 anyone actually interested in me expanding the platforms I use?

May also bring back my twitter… One thing at a time though lol

Irrational

How can you find it irrational or unnacceptable for us to believe that the universe just exists, but its totally rational and acceptable to believe a god/gods just exist…

Atheophobia on campus

Morehead State University.

In a building called Rader there was a religious hand written flyer on the cork board next to the room where SSA meets.

I support freespeech and freedom of religion so I wasn’t phased by this.

When another was added I was actually inspired by them to share some perspective as well. Im also a firm believer in equal representation.

When I added a flyer(hand written) almost word for word of a post I’ve made on here it looked pristine on the board.

Today I came in to find it crumbled and torn. The only flyer in this shape.

My response was to add another note above stating “dear whomever took to crumbling and tearing the message below: your acts display no grace, kindness, or acceptence. They say more about you and your beliefs than the ones on the paper you defiled. I hope you find a way to manage your intolerance and hate.”

Pray away the gay is still a thing…

Not only is this conversion camp a real thing in Michigan, but parents are expected to PAY 200 dollars in order to send their kids somewhere to be told theyre not acceptable unless they are straight, cis, and faithful. Parents pay for their children to be told that they are broken and in need of healing. Simply because of who they are attracted to and they question their gender.
Metro City Church is unbelievable. I can’t believe Conversion Therapy still exists.

Don’t tear down what builds others up.

This goes for everyone. 

Lately I’ve been trying to return to positive, inspirational, encouraging posts for the irreligious/secular community. However, every time I make one I get an argument to why our position is wrong. 

It wasn’t a debate or a declaration of “correct” beliefs, it was a message to those on equal standing with similar perspectives in order to give them a little bit of light. 

I know that atheists(anti-theists, actually) have been known to do the same thing. It needs to stop. 

Stop tearing down things that build up others.

Remember to acknowledge someone today

As secular people we often believe people are in control of most circumstances and results.

So today, remember to acknowledge someone for the good they’ve done big and small.

Acknowledge yourself too. Because you had a hand in it.

If you can’t think of anything to acknowledge, go out and do some good.

Bible study classes, god on walls, and forced pledge

Kentucky is now amongst the states(yes, there is more) who allow bible study CLASSES in their public schools.

Not clubs, not groups, no. Actual bible study courses. In PUBLIC schools.

Arkansas is putting “in god we trust” on their public school walls.

A public school student in Michigan was forcibly removed from his chair when he refused to stand for the pledge. Which is his right. – his reasons were theistic, but still.

If there was ever a time to speak out, its now.

Our rights, everyones rights, are being stepped on.

Someone actually said “church and state is meant to keep the state out of church not the other way around”

We are not a Christian nation.

Speak up.

Im begging you. Speak UP.

You dont have to be atheist to see the problems here.

You dont have to come out as atheist to speak up.

This is IMPORTANT.

To the atheists having a hard time

Good-life to you!

Dear theists,

The assumptions are really bothering me. I get it, you believe in a god(or multiple) and that is fine, but please stop assuming everyone else does too. 

When you see a post about someone struggling and you don’t know their religion please try to refrain from religious comments. I get that you’re just trying to be kind, and I’m not trying to attack you for it, but its not helpful to someone who isn’t religious. 

Why do you say “God is on your side” instead of “you’ll get through this”
Why do you say “God will keep you strong” instead of “You are strong and you’ll be okay”

Even if you believe that a god is the one doing it for them its just respectful to leave your religion out of comfort that is for them (Unless you know that they too share similar beliefs, that is totally different).

This isn’t just for atheists, its for atheists, agnostics, deists, polytheists, and anyone else who doesn’t share similar beliefs.

It’s about respecting other people. 

Support doesn’t have to be theistic–

 Thanks, TOA
