    The US Senate voted tonight to discard proposed legislation to remove federal funding from Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organization who assists Americans with family planning and health care services, including birth control and abortions.  GOP politicians are foaming at the mouth after videos have surfaced allegedly proving that Planned Parenthood is selling fetal body parts.  While various claims made by The Center for Medical Progress, the agency who released the videos, have been debunked, Republicans and their Christian Right comrades have been moving full steam ahead with what…

    Today's post is republished from BizWest and was written by Doug Storum. It is an interesting story about a North Boulder town home project located at 28th and Kalmia. There was quite a bit of pushback from this neighborhood during the projects planning phase. I'm disappointed to learn that these will be rentals, and not an opportunity for home ownership here. Rentals are too often flipped for a

  • Sour Grapes of Wrath: After Marriage Equality Case, the Christian Right is Calling for a Theocracy

    “The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being” That’s the message that was quickly churned out from Mike Huckabee’s campaign for President in the form of a graphic that was shared by thousands over Facebook and other social media sites, following the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality.  Huckabee, the candidate of choice thus far in polling of the Christian Right, is boldly asserting that the rules of his religion trump the laws of the United States, and should be followed in place of the laws of the land.  It certainly isn’t much of a stretch to…
  • SCOTUS Made Me Cry Today — How This Straight Guy Feels About the Same Sex Marriage Decision

    There aren’t many things that tug at my heartstrings.  As I’ve been told, I’m pretty stoic.  It takes a lot to make me outwardly emotional.  I don’t normally cry at sappy movies, weddings, or even funerals.  (Ok, I cry every time I watch Armageddon.  What’s it to you?!?)  My almost-constant composure is not because I’m unemotional or lack empathy.  It’s because I tend to keep it together purposely.  I maintain a decent poker face when the shit hits the fan, and I’m there to support my family when they need someone to take over and get…
  • NEW FEATURE: Introducing the Secular Store!

    DividedUnderGod is happy to announce our brand new DUG Secular Store! Recently, I was poking around the web, looking at some atheist & secular t-shirts and other items, and it felt like everyone had kind of the same stuff — Darwin fish, “coexist” shirts, scarlet “A” pins and stickers, and the rest of the typical things we see in the secular community.  So I decided to tinker around and design a shirt I always wanted to buy for myself.  I really like the way it came out, and I have some other ideas for shirts, stickers, mugs, etc., so why not open a…
  • An Atheist’s Open Letter to Those Praying for His Son

    As many of my readers have noticed, I haven’t posted anything in about a month.  That’s because on April 27, my life got exponentially busier, when my wife went into preterm labor and delivered our son 12 weeks early.  Grayson now lays in the local neonatal intensive care unit, where he’s been since he was born.  He’s doing well and continues to grow and gain weight, but the experience has been draining — physically, emotionally, and financially.  As things normalize and he comes home, activity on DividedUnderGod.com will resume and most likely increase,…

    The short term rental advocacy group sent this email out on Wednesday: Attached is a copy of the new draft ordinance to be read tomorrow night (Thursday) at 6pm.  In short, all STRs are prohibited unless it is a principal residence and is limited to 90 days a year provided the owner resides in the house the other 275. Affordable housing units are prohibited.  To sweeten the deal, if this

    I don't tweet very often, but I made a few tweets yesterday. Here was one of my tweets: Essentially I was making a statement on Twitter at the same time I was providing a link to my recent blogpost that contained photos of the major change underway on Pearl Street with the massive construction project PearlWest. Eric Budd tweeted the response above, pointing Ryan Cooper, a correspondent
  • Short Term Rentals to be Discussed this Week. STR People are Well Organized.

    The internet and social media have changed politics, including local Boulder politics. Some time back I signed up to receive the Emails from the well-organized Short Term Rental group here in Boulder who call themselves "Affordable Boulder Alliance". Through the use of the internet this group urges members to send 1,000 letters to city council, and wear red to the council meetings where STRs
