Homo sex is a sin?

This morning on facebook I saw this picture:
My first thought? Homo sex is not a sin. ...
Oh, wait, he meant homosexual sex. 

See, I'd be that asshole who would go up and ask if he realized he's a homo too. I mean, I'm a homo, you're a homo, we're all homos!
Homo sapiens that is.

The religious people need to do some research before they make signs trying to protest something.
Homo=/= Homosexual
Homo = Homo sapiens
Homo sapiens = Humans

There of, according to this dude, all human sex is a sin.
It's times like this, I'm glad I'm an atheist.

Texas and a Tesla Coil

The Hubby and I were watching Storage Wars: Texas last night and two of the guys, Ricky and Bubba (yes, apparently that’s actually his name) ended up finding a mini Tesla Coil in their locker. 

So they brought it to an expert who knew about them. As the expert guy was trying to explain how it works, you could tell it was going right over their heads. They had no idea what it was or what it did. They had never even heard of a Tesla Coil. So the expert guy takes them to see the big one he has outside and to show them what it does.

After he turns it on their faces go from shock to holy shit this is cool. And it was cool.

But what I realized is that I got incredibly lucky to have a dad that loves science so much. And because of him, we went to the Museum ofScience in Boston quite a bit. Which has its own very big Tesla Coil and to put it in perspective, “the coil is about eight feet tall and four feet wide across the top” (from the museum’s website).  

 The first time I saw it, I think I was eight and it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. And thanks to my dad (who also didn’t mind answering over a million questions when I was little), I too love science and one of my favorite places to go is the Museum of Science.  

Have you ever seen a Tesla Coil up close?

Reason Rally 2012

The Reason Rally is “a celebration of Secular values” that is a sponsored by the country’s major secular organizations. “The intent is to unify, energize, and embolden secular people nationwide, while dispelling the negative opinions held by so much of American society… and having a damn good time doing it!” – From the Reason Rally website.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it this year. I’m hoping it goes well so they will be able to have another one next year and I’ll definitely be going to that one. 

I’ve already heard that there’s going to be protests from people like the Westborough Baptist Church. (You know whose crazy people who will protest anything, like soldiers funerals, LGBT pride parades, etc. They have those stupid “God hate America” and “God hates Fags” signs. Yeah… them.)

However, Andy (from Laughing in Purgatory), came up with some cool ideas on how to deal with them. I really like the Kazoo band and handing out flowers. I suggested that his band hand out flowers while playing. Who could hate a bunch of fun loving, flower handing out, kazoo playing atheists? Besides, it’d make us look really good and be quite memorable too. 

But I also like his sign ideas; “We respect the Westborough Baptist Church's right to free speech. Sincerely yours, the atheists” and “We may disagree, but I don't want you dead. PS - I don't hate you either. Sincerely yours, atheist.”

 I really like these signs, mainly because they are true. I don’t want the WBC-ers dead nor do I hate them. I just think their fucking crazy and need to do a long stint in a nice quite room with soft white walls. But not dead. 

Anyway, if there is another one next year I’m hoping it’s going to be as exciting as I think this year’s will be. 

Anyone else have any ideas on how to deal with the WBC?

Shit People Say To Fat Girls

So I found this video on a Tumblr Blog and thought it was amusing  but also very true at the same time. I for one have heard all of these, a lot of them from family members, and I know a lot of other fat girls have heard the same. I think it's about time we stopped criticizing everyone on their body type and focus on everyone, skinny girls included, getting health.

A Politician with a Sense of Logic

I saw this video on Finally a politician uses his logic instead of emotion. I wish more of them were like this. No one deserves to be a second class citizen.

Tim Tebow is no role model in my book

My dad and I were talking about Tim Tebow the other day and my dad mentioned how he is a good role model for kids. Well I promptly disagreed with him, not only because I'm an atheist but because I'm a supporter and part of the LGBT community.

As an atheist, when I have kids, I want to teach them that hard work and determination will win them that game (or anything else that wanted to do) and not God. If they decide to play a sport, I want them to learn that working hard in practice, teamwork, and doing your best is all they need. I don't want them to praise God when they win or to blame God when they lose.

Another reason why I wouldn't want my kids to look up to Tebow is because him and his mother are advocates for the anti-LGBT hate group, focus on the family. My kids will learn that love is love, that no matter if a family consists of two dads, two moms, one mom, one dad or just grandparents, a family is still a family.

I know that my kids will learn of other people's views and morals, but I'm hoping that I and my hubby will have succeeded in teaching them that hate is not a family value.

I want them to know that everyone deserves equal treatment.

Employee of the Month – Good idea or Bad idea?

As you know by now (or maybe not if this is your first time reading my blog, if so Hi!) the hubby and I are in the process of starting our own business, a motorcycle shop to be precise. And we have been discussing Dragon Cycles (our business) a lot lately, especially about getting everything ready for when we find an investor. We are hoping that when we find one and get the money all we’ll have to do is buy the building and equipment and get the people.

We were talking about bonuses when we got on the topic of Employee of the Month. The hubby wants to do it but I’m not sure. See the thing is I’ve never worked somewhere where they had Employee of the Month or at least never worked there long enough to find out.

Michele Bachmann “everyone has equal rights” (sort of…)

I was reading an article earlier (Student questions Michele Bachmann on gay rights) that really annoyed me.

An Iowa teen that is the head of her GSA (Gay Straight Alliance if you don’t know what that means) at her school ask Mrs. Bachmann what she would to support gay rights, like marriage. Well we all know by now that Mrs. Bachmann is against any gay rights. Her answer to the young women was that everyone all ready has the right to get married, as long as you marry someone of the opposite sex.

Family Research Council Hate Video

I found the video below from Laughing in Purgatory, it’s a “Family Research Council” video on how homosexual/bisexual/pansexual or as they say people in “unhealthy relationships” and who are involved in “destructive behavior” are destroying families.

I find it sad that they need a video to push their religious anti-LGBT agenda. So much for their God being “all loving” and atheists being “evil”. Atheists aren’t the one’s trying to destroy others families.
