Article also includes a Q&A on how Christians are treated in the country. I don't get why they don't get it that if they're right and we really are the infidels, God if plenty power enough to take care of any infidels himself and doesn't need mere man to do it for him. Remember when Gideon cut down an altar of Baal and when Baal's followers came looking for him, Gideon's father Joash said that if Baal is a god, he can take care of Gideon himself and it would be insulting to Baal for his followers to do it for him

Wondering what y'all think of this. Not sure what to think myself

"The person who prays for God to change things thinks God has arranged matters wrong, and also thinks they can instruct God on how they should be put right"

EDIT :: Either y'all are too nice, or you didn't notice it, but the original title was "Happy Vernal Equinox" :) I wish I could say that I did it on purpose to see who all would cock their head, or would think some trickster raccoon or fox was trying to pull a fast one, but it was really just me, spacing last night when I posted it.

Every time someone says teaching kids about religion is indoctrination, I want to ask them "What would you teach your kids and how is it not indoctrination?

I just found out that this existed 20 years ago

The Reppies was an American educational musical show for children created by Northstar Entertainment along with Treat Entertainment, which formed Reppies Entertainment Inc, L.L.C. The series centers around a group of human-like reptile creatures that sing in a music group and was produced by WEDU Television in Tampa, Florida. Each episode featured three original songs. Twenty six half hour episodes and one hour long holiday special were originally created in 1996 and aired on public television. Thirteen of the episodes were later re-dubbed with Christian-oriented messages and moved to Trinity Broadcasting Network and the Christian Television Network. Originally created by Wendy Harrison from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, along with the father son team of Pat and Steve McGonigle of Northstar Entertainment. Smokey Knudson was the series producer and Brian McBride as executive in charge of production for the entire series run. Bruce Foulke was the Music Supervisor for the series

In a solitary show of courage over the weekend, a young Mexican boy stood in the middle of a street with his arms outspread trying to stop a “pro-family” march protesting same-sex marriage.

As Mexico makes a national move toward marriage equality, pockets of protest sprung up, with marches taking place across many parts of the country. During one such march in Celaya, Guanajuato, journalist Manuel Rodriguez photographed a boy standing ahead of the car-led parade attempting to halt their advance.

“At first I thought the child was only playing,” Rodriguez told Regeneracion. But when Rodriguez later interviewed the child, he told the reporter, “I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred.”

Same-sex marriage is now legal in Mexico City and nine of the country’s 31 states.

Good for them! It's their business, they can play whatever music they want! Don't like it, don't get your pizza there! It's not like they're engaging in some form of discrimination against non-believers!

It bothers me that though most atheists would respect that and are supportive of them doing that, there are those who, if they could do so, would take them to court to force them to stop. That to me is the definition of militant atheism (comments from both types of atheists in the article)
