Fight For The Future, Slowly With Cats

Alabama Christians Call For Stoning, Lynching, and Shooting Of Atheists

I’m using the power of the Internet to shame these violent people who believe that people who don’t share their Christian religion deserve to be exiled, attacked, and killed. It’s time to call out these bigots who are threatening violence against Amanda Scott. [...]

Earlier today, blogger Docdawg reflected on his participation in the second year of weekly “Moral Mondays” protests held in Raleigh, the capital city of North Carolina:

“In the face of Moral Mondays’ incessant reminders of NC voters’ discontent and revulsion, state Republicans (not too long ago a fearsomely united bloc) are beginning to unravel at [...]

Protest Twitter’s Support For Theocratic Censorship

Today, a coalition led by the Ex-Muslims of North America is organizing a day of protest against what it calls Twitter Theocracy.
