Coming Out Atheist

Have you ever had a secret you wanted to get off your chest, but you couldn’t because of the backlash you would receive? And this isn’t even a bad secret. This isn’t a, **_“I’m sorry I ran over your cat,”** secret. Not even a, **_“don’t tell mom the babysitter’s dead,”_** secret either. This secret shouldn’t even be a secret at all. Because it’s who YOU are. But it is. And I understand all to well the fear of coming out atheist. But I’m here to tell you it is ok to finally come out as an… Continue

THE "I'M GOD" PLATE LICENSE?

Someone used it for years in Ohio, but was denied in Kentucky! Why? It would offend or distract some people here! Now, are people in Ohio more "civilized" than those in KENTUCKY? Is this just one officer's bias?

Proslytism

I find it strange that people people I come across such as contractors tell me what their religion is. I certianly don't like prosletytzing and I think I come across as religiously neuteral.

Is it common for people to introduce themselves by their name shortly followed by their religious beliefs?

People are usually more discrete about their political viewpoints.

Do people think stating their religion is a door to further dialogue?

The Black Cat

The black cat has crossed your path,

Beneath a waxing moon,

The shadow in reflective light

A whisper of your doom.

Ominous, the night is young,

And curious thoughts pervade your mind,

Of all that lies before you,

And the cat you left behind.

The black cat has crossed your path,

Dancing to a madman's tune,

A…

Is burning your flag illegal?

I know the flag role and due respect. But I thought it could be burned as long as it's yours in the USA. Is Trump missing something with his one-year jail and the like?

When is most suitable to teach children money skills?

Many parents "protect" kids against money (and sex) until after school. Does society benefit more from this protection than early literacy and involvement in this domain?

Just heard that the comedy actor Gene Wilder has died Aged 83.   A real shame he was a great comedic actor. I don't think I've ever seen him do a bad performance.
