Shot glasses on the shrine!

Okay, that was very clickbaity. (I couldn’t resist.) But, well, check it out… This all started with the realization one day that since, very frequently, I do rite to multiple gods at once, maybe those gods would like their own separate drinking vessels. But the space on my shrine is limited. What to do? Shot… Continue reading Shot glasses on the shrine!

Be well, Matt Dillahunty

At the beginning of tonight’s Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty announced that this would be his last show. “Well,” I thought, “if I’m going to call in, it’s now or never.” You see, in an earlier video, I had heard Matt say that he had never had a believer tell him, “Yes, I believe, but I… Continue reading Be well, Matt Dillahunty

Reflections on the Unyear and Wep Ronpet 2022

It’s definitely been an Unyear. This Unyear has been a little weird, but I guess a lot of them have for me. On July 20, I found out that I had been exposed to COVID so I got tested. Well, the COVID part of the test wasn’t actually run so I had to get retested,… Continue reading Reflections on the Unyear and Wep Ronpet 2022

The real reason for the season

We’re between Hanukkah and Christmas, so you know what that means: It’s time for my annual holiday message. Reblogged from a 2016 post: I was doing rite to Hathor, the Lady of Love, today (i.e. December 16), and something came to me. Maybe it isn’t earth-shattering, but I wanted to share it with you guys.… Continue reading The real reason for the season

Remembering Phil Saviano

One of, if not the, hero of the clergy sexual abuse scandal passed away Sunday, November 28. Today we remember Phil Saviano. Phil Saviano was just 11 when a priest began abusing him. As an adult, he would go on to collect records about his own case and others, compiling evidence which he would eventually… Continue reading Remembering Phil Saviano

Matt Dillahunty: “God’s a pr!ck”

Okay, those weren’t his words as I recall them, but let me explain all this. So as I’ve said before on this blog, my husband is an atheist. We both have YouTube running almost constantly on our TV (because we don’t have cable so we don’t have the Weather Channel [wah]). In my husband’s case,… Continue reading Matt Dillahunty: “God’s a pr!ck”

A Kemetic and an atheist mourned a Catholic…

Sounds like the setup to a bad joke, doesn’t it? “A Kemetic, an atheist and a Catholic walked into a bar…” (Even my saying that is a bad cliché. But I couldn’t resist, sorry.) My dad died on July 27. He was a devout Catholic. The funeral was on August 5. It’s been rough. Losing… Continue reading A Kemetic and an atheist mourned a Catholic…

The 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism

I’ve definitely been getting more into UUism lately. I’m joining groups and reading books, and I even volunteered to be my church’s Collecting Treasurer, a role I take over on July 1st. (Do I know what I’m doing? Heck, no. When has that ever stopped me?) One of the groups concerns promoting the 8th Principle… Continue reading The 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism

Originally posted on Kemetic vs. Atheist:
I couldn’t figure out how to reblog this a second time, so I copied and pasted into a new blog post. Happy holidays and spread the love. I was doing rite to Hathor, the Lady of Love, today (i.e. December 16, 2016), and something came to me. Maybe it…
