When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.

I have had hundreds of otherwise rational and sane individuals attempt to assert that prayer does heal, that prayer does work, and that prayer can affect individuals. Whenever I ask for the proof of these claims I’m met with a story about how their third cousin’s grandma got over a bad hemorrhoid or some other complete garbage story that no one has any way of verifying to be true or can’t be distinguished from random chance. Don’t believe in con men.

This is one of those things I find so disappointing that it is almost impossible to express in words how I feel about it. Our education system is continuing to fail us.

I posted this picture several years ago but today is an important day to remember it. The man picture above was Pat Tillman, today marks ten years since his unfortunate passing. Pat Tillman was a man that played for the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL and stepped away from an extremely lucrative contract in order to become an Army Ranger and assist in Afghanistan. Among the many things that Pat was known for was his open and outspoken Atheism. Sadly this man’s life was cut short in Afghanistan and the official reason was stated to be “friendly fire”. He was killed well not engaged with the enemy at all but “accidentally”, as the story goes, by one of his own. Of course this story has sparked many questions and also spawned many conspiracy theories, some being more outlandish than the others, but one that has often come up is that it may have been due to his outspoken non-belief. This hero, this warrior, walked away from a life most of us could never dream of to bravely serve when he felt he was called to do so and in the end he may have paid the ultimate price not in battle, but simply because of who he really was. Gone but not forgotten - Pat Tillman 11/6/76 - 4/22/04

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve run in to this exact same sentiment.
