What really matters…The So-Called Secular Arguments Against Choice

We will also be discussing atheist vitriol to each other on The Nones . It is approaching toxic levels on the topic of feminism. Hayley wants to be a more …

Going to have to burn my new Secular Humanism T-Shirt by Lilandra

What are they trying to say?

WTH?! I followed a link from a blog comment linking the Tea Party to Fascist government to a secular humanist site.  You know you have to be ever vigilant against fascism. Right?  But then what is up with this site’s banner… Why make a point to everyone that visits the site that you are “Beyond …
