politics – Christy's Houseful of Chaos: Gretta Vosper and the atheist church

Gretta Vosper is a minister in the United Church of Canada, at least for now. A committee in Toronto has recommended that she not be allowed to continue as a minister, given her statements that she does not believe in God or call herself a Christian. The United Church, of which I am a part, is a ...

Bill Longstaff: Bishop Henry pontificates on LGBTQ rights

The Alberta government has established LGBTQ guidelines for the province’s schools. This story would not be complete without comments from Calgary’s Bishop Fred Henry. The good bishop has excoriated the guidelines as “anti-Catholic” and “totalitarian.” He claims that Catholic schools, which will be subject to the guidelines, already require that all students be equally respected. ...

LeDaro: Socrates views on soul and God

The question of God and soul has always baffled me. Below is the commentary of Socrates views on divinity. “If anything in general can be said about the philosophical beliefs of Socrates, it is that he was morally, intellectually, and politically at odds with his fellow Athenians. When he is on trial for heresy and ...

The Scott Ross: Dehumanizing Humanity

The more we call a murderer an animal or treat a hero like a god, we not only dehumanize them, we dehumanize ourselves. What differentiates us from animals is our higher consciousness, treating any other person like a wild animal to be put down or a deity to be worshiped strips them of their humanity. ...

The idea that with a little more god in school tragedy is avoidable really burns my buns.  Adding more falsehood to peoples lives is never a good thing.  It saddens me to see people talking so unabashedly about how their magic dude in the sky could fix things if only people believed in him.  These ...

Death By Trolley: Is belief in God a choice?

The following satirical video, “Gay Scientists Isolate Christian Gene”, pokes fun at the concept of a “gay gene” and religious opposition to homosexuality. The proportion of people who believe that homosexuality is chosen is decreasing. That’s not to imply that homosexuality is the phenotype expressed by a “gay gene”.

Another Step to Take: More Christmas books

For three years now, we’ve made it a tradition to sing Christmas carols every evening of advent. Some nights we read Christmas stories, and sometimes we watch Christmas movies as well, but always Christmas carols.
