Why remove public displays of religion?

Why remove public displays of religion?

What’s the big deal?  Why should religious symbols, quotes, adornments, and other forms of religious displays be removed from the public sphere?  I get this question a lot and recently in Grand Haven, MI a local patron of the city who lives in a nearby town, Mitch Kahle, decided to ask the city to remove this giant cross from the public land as well as refrain from putting up nativity scenes and other religious messages unless they make clear space for other forms of public information dissemination. See the original letter here. ...

Part Four: Concerning the Argument from Numerical Identity

Part Four: Concerning the Argument from Numerical Identity

by: Brandon Christen Sorry for the delay in publishing this, the final part in this multi-part series about secular arguments against abortion. Let us recap the argument from numerical identity. The argument states that an entity, A, is numerically singular—that is, it is equivalent to itself. A given chair is itself, and it remains itself at any point in time through the fifty years that it exists. This is a very intuitive position, and is arguably the common sense position most people maintain. When applied to abortion, the argument is...

Abortion, Philosophy, and Godlessness: Part 3, the Argument from Rights

Abortion, Philosophy, and Godlessness: Part 3, the Argument from Rights

Some people make the claim that all human beings have rights. This being the case, they go on to say that to abort an embryo is to violate that human being’s right to life. Thus, they conclude, it is wrongful to practice abortion. I find great problems with this line of thinking. So, for part three, I wanted to discuss the issue of rights. Previously we discussed my belief that what matters about someone is not their mere humanity (in terms of their being biologically human) but their personhood, which comes about subsequent to their...

A Thought Experiment About Personhood

A Thought Experiment About Personhood

This is a mini-post related to a (much) longer post discussing the argument from future deprivation. Briefly, the argument supposes that the ending of human life is wrong fundamentally because of its denying them of a future filled with the sorts of experiences that make a person’s life meaningful. Thus, according to the argument from future deprivation, aborting a fetus is wrong because it deprives a human life of its future. Now, the argument also asserts that the question of whether or not a fetus is also a person does not matter—that...

Abortion, Philosophy, and Godlessness: The Argument from Deprived Future Part 2

By: Brandon Christen (Part 2 of 5) One of the strongest arguments against abortion which I have come across has been the argument from a denied future. This argument is presented by anti-abortionists from within the secular community as a completely secular argument that, allegedly, philosophically showcases why we cannot allow abortion (except for certain circumstances, which we shall come to in due time). This argument is perhaps best articulated by a philosopher named Don Marquis from his article “Why Abortion is Immoral” in The Journal...

Everything Happens for a Reason…. or Does it?

Everything Happens for a Reason: An Open Letter to My Friends and Others Who Believe This ©2014 By Martha Readyoff First of all, let me say that I love you and admire you. If you are my friend, I love you and you know who you are. If I don’t know you and if you believe that everything happens for a reason then I have strong evidence to think that you are like my friends who believe this and are therefore a good person and probably pretty pleasant to be around- other than having to listen to you say “everything happens for a reason.”...

Abortion, Philosophy, and Godlessness: Considering abortion from Atheistic Perspectives Part 1

Guest blog by Brandon Christen This will be a 5 part series.  Each argument will be broken down individually to give it the explanation it deserves. With perhaps the notable exception of gay marriage, there are few issues that seem—on the face of it—more starkly divided, and dividable, along religious and non-religious lines, it is abortion. The broadly portrayed narrative in the past has been one of conservative, religious ideologies making the claim that an embryo is a full person by merit of its possessing a unique and individual...

IRS ends VIP treatment for churches

Guest blog by: Jason Paul Benell Recently the IRS settled with the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) concerning the political activism that many religious groups have engaged in over the past years. FFRF challenged the IRS on the grounds that religious organizations receive preferential treatment due to their church status, citing the requirement for all non-profit groups file special financial accountability forms while churches do not. They allege that “this preferential treatment directly benefits churches while discriminating...

Exploring Your Atheist Communities: Why Atheists Hang Out With Other Atheists

Something I’ve heard from well-meaning, and not-so-well-meaning, believers: why do you need atheism? Why congregate for something you lack like we do for something we have [their religious beliefs, god, etc]? This is a multifaceted question, with multifaceted answers. On the face of it, nonbelievers need to congregate because they need to be around other people that don’t believe. They need to organize not to proselytize, but occasionally to spread the good word…that you can be good without god, that atheists believe in good....

Atheists Are Better Than Christians

Atheists Are Better Than Christians

For many years now all I have heard from Christians are that they have god given morals that somehow give them the ability to do better at life than anyone else. Their god, scriptures, and set of moral codes ensure that they are the higher authority on not only morality but in all areas of life. So I decided to see if this was true. Atheists overall have lower poverty rates than Christians, Society Without God (Zuckerman, 2008). This is due to the psychology of religion leaching onto the poor to give them hope and security that after all of...
