On Christianity and the slavery billboard…

I loved the slavery billboard and thought the message was clear and good – but Sikivu Hutchinson argues that even when the message is understood, the imagery is unwelcome and that we have badly misunderstood the audience.

Help Natalie fight the good fight

Hey gang, Natalie Reed — a recent guest on Godless Bitches — is a member of two distinct minority communities.  She is both atheist and transgendered.  Those communities apparently, at best, share an uneasy alliance.  Much like I’ve learned to expect that any remotely pro-feminism post here will receive vocal disapproval from many atheists, Natalie’s …
