Good Video, Bad Poetry

November 24, 2008

Ms. O’Godless and I went to the local Atheists United meeting today and its arts showcase.  We were treated to readings of selected poems from a new anthology of atheist poetry Above us Only Sky.  I heard a poem about giving birth.  I don’t care what your sacrum does, I DON’T CARE.  You’d think that atheists would have the literature thing down. Twain was a closeted atheist!  We have Joyce Carol Oats, Sylvia Plath, Oscar Wilde, and ALBERT CAMUS! What gives?  We’re not exactly lacking in the field, who dropped the ball?

Thankfully the songs by Jay Spears were amazing!  In the video for Smak Dem Christians Down Abe Lincoln, George Washington, John Adams, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson beat an evangelical preacher with rolled up copies of the bill of rights.  Send Jay Spears your money, NOW.
