Atheists Anonymous

By Volaar

When I read Jesse Beach’s essay on AA and theism I smiled a big smile.

By TheOncomingStorm

Alright, all you Pagans out there: this is a newsflash if you have not already heard: The Holy Thorn Tree at WearyAll Hill, in Glastonbury, Somerset, England was vandalized on Dec. 9.
