    Image courtesy openlysecular.org I’m an atheist and a supporter of the secular movement here in America.  I’m also a mother of two children and homemaker to a humanist household.  I spend my days changing my baby’s diapers and watching Sesame Street, while trying to make time to read through the latest books as I maintain an orderly home.  And when it comes to raising my children, keeping God out of the picture is key.  There’s a saying synonymous with parenting that goes, “If I don’t expose my child to the lessons of God, then no one will.”…

    At this year’s WEST (Water, Energy, Smart Technologies) Summit, an event created by Sustainable Silicon Valley last week in Palo Alto. The keynote speaker, Rex Parris, Mayor of the City of Lancaster, California, challenged attendees to combat the effects of climate change by taking action. Mayor Parris used his southern, gentle but serious, style to persuade the City of Lancaster, a community outside of Los Angeles to generate solar power on every roof top.

  • The Fight for Faith or The Attack on Atheists?

    (originally posted on blogginbluestocking.blogspot.com) Religion and government—two separate institutions that when combined are the topic of controversy and center of much debate.  Why?  Could it be because our nation lacks a state religion?  Or perhaps it’s the result of heightened discrimination against Christians in the public sphere?  Maybe overwhelming violent acts against, as well as the bullying of, God’s children are occurring more frequently in our public schools?  That’s what many Americans believe.  Atheists are portrayed as iconoclasts, out to destroy all that…

    As many of you are aware, DividedUnderGod.com has been going strong for about 3 years.  In that time, we’ve been able to spread the word about church/state separation issues in the US, assist Margaret Doughty in her fight for American citizenship, and introduce the concept of progressive atheism to readers.  Along with the website, DividedUnderGod has a loyal following on Twitter and Facebook, and the site’s YouTube channel was launched this week. All of these things take time, and unfortunately money to produce and maintain.  In order to offset some of that, after much…

  • If Atheists Want to Change Perceptions, They Need to Stop Acting Like This

    Today started like any other day for me.  I got up and got myself and my son ready for the day.  I took him to school and I went back home to work.  At some point in the morning, a headline caught my attention about a 22-month-old boy, Brayden King, who died by drowning in a baptismal fountain in Alabama.  I clicked on the story and read that the toddler’s mother was in church preparing for a prayer meeting and her 13-year-old daughter was put in charge of the boy.  After losing track of Brayden, she searched for him and found him unconscious in the baptismal fountain.  He…

  • From Hurricane to Homelegance - Fremont Case Studies on Accessing Small Business Funding

    5 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    For small and medium-sized businesses looking to expand, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 504 loan program can help. Established in 1980, SBA 504 loans can be used to buy, build or improve owner-occupied commercial real estate or to fund other major fixed assets, such as equipment. In addition to the benefits of moving from tenant to owner, SBA 504 loans allow down payments as low as 10%, so business owners can maintain liquidity and preserve working capital for reinvestment and job creation. The below-market, fixed rates and long repayment terms can help improve cash flow. In…
