#can you imagine if atheists said that after everything they said #”I’d like a burger and fries please. Also there is no God.” #”Happy birthday Mom. Also there is no God.” #”The Avengers was a fucking great movie I want to see it again! Also there is no God.” #”That was the best sex I’ve ever had in my life. But there is still no God.”
lmaooooooooooooooooo WE DO THIS

(seriously aside from the idea that morality is dependent on religious faith or constant religious indoctrination, the idea that WHOOPS MY TEACHERS IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL AREN’T TALKING ABOUT ONE SPECIFIC FAITH, GUESS I CAN’T BE RELIGIOUS AT ALL

In 1979, McDonald’s introduced the Happy Meal.
Sometime after that, it was decided that the Bible teaches that human life begins at conception.
Ask any American evangelical, today, what the Bible says about abortion and they will insist that this is what it says. (Many don’t actually believe this, but they know it is the only answer that won’t get them in trouble.) They’ll be a little fuzzy on where, exactly, the Bible says this, but they’ll insist that it does.
That’s new. If you had asked American evangelicals that same question the year I was born you would not have gotten the same answer.
That year, Christianity Today — edited by Harold Lindsell, champion of “inerrancy” and author of The Battle for the Bible — published a special issue devoted to the topics of contraception and abortion. That issue included many articles that today would get their authors, editors — probably even their readers — fired from almost any evangelical institution. For example, one article by a professor from Dallas Theological Seminary criticized the Roman Catholic position on abortion as unbiblical. Jonathan Dudley quotes from the article in his book Broken Words: The Abuse of Science and Faith in American Politics. Keep in mind that this is from a conservative evangelical seminary professor, writing in Billy Graham’s magazine for editor Harold Lindsell:God does not regard the fetus as a soul, no matter how far gestation has progressed. The Law plainly exacts: “If a man kills any human life he will be put to death” (Lev. 24:17). But according to Exodus 21:22-24, the destruction of the fetus is not a capital offense. … Clearly, then, in contrast to the mother, the fetus is not reckoned as a soul.
Christianity Today would not publish that article in 2012. They might not even let you write that in comments on their website. If you applied for a job in 2012 with Christianity Today or Dallas Theological Seminary and they found out that you had written something like that, ever, you would not be hired.
At some point between 1968 and 2012, the Bible began to say something different. That’s interesting.

A lot of people ask me things like “Where can I get an altar cloth?” or “Where can I buy/how can I make my own incense?” Right now you have an opportunity to get both! I am giving away 10 gift packages!
Each package contains:
- 1 altar cloth (of varying colours and styles), measuring 2 feet by 2 feet
- 1 bag of homemade incense
- 1 special surprise gift to put on your new altar! (should you so choose to)
Each gift package is different - each altar cloth is different, and each bag of incense is unique, and homemade by me, TheLivingWiccan. The incense is handmade using a mortar and pestle, and ingredients I either harvested from my personal gardens, around the world (such as the Italian wild roses some of you might be getting!), or harvested directly from personal rituals of mine (such as Sumach from Samhain or Balsam Fir from Yule).
- You must reblog to enter. Likes will not count.
- You must be a follower of TheLivingWiccan to enter.
- You must be a resident of North America. (sorry, but postage is hard to determine and expensive. I will be doing other giveaways in the future, and I will definitely open it up then)
Winners will be selected through random.org to ensure maximum fairness. I will post the names of the winners, but also private message you if you win should you miss the post. I will take any allergies into account when selecting which incenses to give for the winners.
****The Giveaway will be open until February 24th at 11:59 EST — exactly one month from this post****
Blessed Be, and Best of Luck!
I live in Illinois, and I’m not allergic to anything.

There was a large group of ultra-orthodox jews on my flight this morning, each with a vast array of wacky hats. Some of the hats were big and fuzzy. Some of the hats were tiny and made of wood. None of the hats were allowed to touch the ground, so it took forever to board the damn plane.
Things started to get ridiculous when they refused to sit next to women. One of the dudes was assigned the seat next to mine, and he started having a shit fit. The flight attendant asked if I’d be willing to move. I told her hell no. If she wanted to move me to first class, fine, but if she tried to bump me anywhere else, I’d start ordering ham sandwiches for every hasid on the flight. I wasn’t about to get sent back to a middle seat because some weirdo’s imaginary friend in the sky thinks girls have cooties. Fuck that shit.
When it was all said and done, quite a few other women also refused to give up their seats. Rightly so. I’m all for religious tolerance, but that doesn’t mean anyone should have to be involuntarily subjected to a religion’s institutionalized sexist bullshit.
And for the record, if that group had been a bunch of muslim fundamentalists instead of a bunch of jewish fundamentalists, I guarantee the airline wouldn’t have been nearly as accommodating.
Bolded because fuck yeah.

By Bryan NelsonThe Bible might be the best-selling book in history, but it may also be full of lies. At least, that’s the claim being made by biblical scholar and former evangelical Christian, Bart Ehrman, in a new book titled, “Forged: Writing in the Name of God — Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are.”According to Ehrman, at least 11 of the 27 New Testament books are forgeries, while only seven of the 13 epistles attributed to Paul were probably written by him. None of the writings attributed to the Apostle Peter could have been written by him, and even the authenticity of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John can be questioned. The book is the focus of a recent report by Discovery News.“The Bible not only contains untruths of accidental mistakes. It also contains what almost anyone today would call lies,” writes Ehrman, a professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

By the by… snopes.com says your claim is FALSE. Nice try!
They’re still spreading this shit around? Why am I not surprised?
Science says you have more than 5 senses. It also says that you can, in fact, use said senses to perceive a person’s brain.

43% of college campus Catholic groups support gays and LGBT rights, and the religious right, especially one para-military “Catholic” group, is furious. TFP (Tradition, Family, and Property) Student Action, an anti-gay neo-fascist para-military cult closely tied to a group accused of assassination plots on both the Pope and Reagan, asks,
“After examining the official web sites of 244 Catholic universities and colleges in America, TFP Student Action found that 107 – or 43% – recognize student clubs that favor the homosexual agenda. Many of these clubs promote same-sex “marriage,” open homosexuality in the military, and push for the mainstreaming of unnatural vice,” TFP writes.
suck it, TFP
