Feb. 1: “Perfect Peace” aka Avoidance (Living Without Jesus, Daily)

Part 33/365: An atheist reviews a popular Christian devotional from Jesus Daily. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, Happy February – let’s see what the Jesus Daily devotional has in store for us today, shall we? VERSE OF THE DAY: “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you.” – Isaiah 26:3 (Version?) Oh. So… back to not quoting Jesus again. Got it. I’m not even sure how to get around all of the awkward pronouns between...

February’s Theme: “Jesus Is The Answer” (Living Without Jesus, Daily)

An atheist reviews a popular Christian devotional from Jesus Daily. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, After my first month of reviews, I was surprised how rarely any mention of Jesus actually appeared in the pages of a book titled Jesus Daily. So, imagine my surprise when February’s theme was revealed today with a full page graphic titled, “Jesus Is The Answer.” Readers are reminded of this claim daily with a miniaturized version of the colorful pinwheel at the top of every...

Jan. 31 – “The Master’s Handiwork” & Feigned Humility (Living Without Jesus, Daily)

Part 31/365: An atheist reviews a popular Christian devotional from Jesus Daily. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, We made it – a full month of devotions from everybody’s favorite, Jesus Daily! I guess there’s no more fitting way to end the month than to, once again, start the day off by reading the Apostle Paul, rather than the J-man himself. VERSE OF THE DAY: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He created us in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us...

President Trump’s First Church Service

President Trump’s First Church Service

After watching the latest peaceful transfer of power, I’ve got to say – that was one hell of an impressive church service! “We will be protected by our military, we will be protected by our law enforcement, but most importantly – we will be protected by GOD!” – Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States Nothing like the juxtaposition of firepower and religion in the same sentence to put the rest of the world at ease (not to mention the growing *millions* of citizens who hold *no* religious...

Living Without Jesus, Daily – An Atheist’s Review (In 365 Parts)

This blog shall serve as a daily reminder as to why no one should ever agree to a drunken wager over a game of darts with an Englishman! It all started a few months ago when I received a returned package with an extra surprise waiting inside. As it turns out, one of our fans, an atheist, thought it would be fun to send a copy of one of our books to her sister, a devout Christian, as a birthday gift. Without any further understanding of the relationship dynamics between the sisters or the motives behind the gift, I think it is fair to say that...

The Self-Inflicted “Religious Persecution” Of An Assistant High School Football Coach

The Self-Inflicted “Religious Persecution” Of An Assistant High School Football Coach

A lot of folks seemed to be pretty uncomfortable when I shared a link to a story about Joe Kennedy, an assistant football coach in Bremerton, WA being suspended after months of refusing to follow the district’s policies regarding public prayer on the fifty yard line after home games. In short, I received a number of angry notes accusing me of being an “atheist extremist” who is trying to “take away religious freedoms.” Uhm… no. I was simply pointing out the following: 1. There are dozens of Christian...

GOD COPS: New Motto Graces Police Cars

GOD COPS: New Motto Graces Police Cars

This week, Sheriff Doug Rader proudly announced that all law enforcement vehicles in Stone County, MO (just outside of Branson) would be adorned with the department’s new motto. Was it, “To Protect and to Serve“? Nah… Was it the nation’s original, simple, and unifying national motto, “E Pluribus Unum” – “out of many, one“? Nope. Instead, in 2015, the publicly elected Sheriff of Y’allqaeda took it upon himself to follow an example set by past theocrats, Eisenhower and Truman...

Pastors On The Prowl – A Wake-Up Call For Christian Families

Pastors On The Prowl – A Wake-Up Call For Christian Families

What do these fifty pastors have in common? They were all considered to be “men of God” by their congregations right until the moment police arrived and they made the local news in the month of May for horrific crimes against children – most of whom were members of their own churches. Many of the crimes took place on church property with several victims over the course of many years. OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: This post is not about making generalizations in order to shame an entire faith, but to raise awareness in an effort to...

Louisiana – A Proud Tradition Of Discrimination and Ignorance?

Posted by on May 20, 2015 in In The News, Rants from Horus | 2 comments

In case you missed it yesterday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal issued an emergency executive order to overturn a landslide house committee vote of 10-2 against the state’s proposed “Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act” (one of the right-wing’s latest “Right To Discriminate” laws). What’s the emergency, Governor? Are those pesky negroes riding buses again? Are the women folk trying to vote? Are non-Christians holding public meetings? Or, are two humans simply trying to [insert any action of daily...

Empty Pews: Record-Breaking Decline Of Christianity In The U.S.

The Pew Research Center has released the results from their latest extensive survey of over 35,000 adults and America’s Changing Religious Landscape is not looking good for Christianity. When compared to the previous landmark study seven years ago, the number of Americans who self-identify as Christian dropped a significant 8 points, from 78.4 percent to 70.6 percent – the lowest saturation of Christianity in U.S. history. Conversely, those who consider themselves to be “unaffiliated” (atheist, agnostic, or...

Governors Proclaim Day of Reason (in direct contrast to National Day Of Prayer)

I would like to personally congratulate Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska and Governor Jack Markell of Delaware for proclaiming today, May 7, 2015 as their state’s official Day of Reason! I would also like to recognize United States Representative Mike Honda (CA-17) who introduced U.S. House Resolution 228, the very first National Day of Reason resolution to ever be brought before Congress! These actions send quite a strong message – in direct contrast to the religious grandstanding of the federally mandated National Day of...
