Hello, World. I'm Openly Secular

Posted by zomberina , 23 April 2015 · 124 views

Hello, World. I'm Openly Secular Hi, from Covington, Kentucky! The neighbor of Cincinnati, Ohio.

My name is Amanda Ashcraft. I work for the postal service, write numerous articles about ex religious life and childhood abuse, parent four beautiful children, and live openly secular as a humanism practicing atheist.

I grew up in a charismatic home in southwest Ohio, my earliest memories b...


No Tattoo For You!

Posted by zomberina , 20 April 2015 · 110 views

No Tattoo For You! For the last few months, I’ve been scrimping away money to restart my tattoo collecting. I currently have three altogether, all from different shops in my area, and out of the three who did the work, I decided to return to one in particular. I liked the artists that worked there, and trusted their professionalism so much so that I’ve unfailingly recommend...


The Safety Dance For When Christians Don't Want To Dance

Posted by zomberina , 13 April 2015 · 448 views

The Safety Dance For When Christians Don't Want To Dance It seems with Easter, and the improvement of weather from freezing to tolerable, that there is an uptick in religious pursuits. As if after getting through the last rather heavy Christmas and Easter seasons, the rekindling of faith hits a critical mass and a bunch of stupid just starts flowing out of religious mouths with increased zeal. I tried to see if...


The Value Of A Life

Posted by zomberina , 09 April 2015 · 242 views

The Value Of A Life Normally, I try to focus thought and discussion on religious themes. This is due to the fact that I host my blog on this similarly themed website. Not the case today, though. Based on just my title, you might think this will be an abortion piece. Maybe I might be referring to all the police shooting deaths as of late. The reality is I'm discussing the val...


I Dream Of Mayberry

I Dream Of Mayberry "I miss the good old days. You know, when things were simpler and more pure. Like Mayberry."

This is probably one of the most absolutely ridiculous notions in America today. Seriously. What makes it worse would be the fact that everyone wants things to be like Mayberry. They wish for Mayberry whenever they hear news about legislation that favors quicker...


Governor Pence And The Grim Silence Of The Evangelical Right

Governor Pence And The Grim Silence Of The Evangelical Right "The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living... as they seem to be occupied with revolutionizing themselves and things, creating something that did not exist before, precisely in such epochs of revolutionary crisis they anxiously conjure up the spirits of the past to their service, borrowing from them names, b...


Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst?

Posted by zomberina , 26 March 2015 · 268 views

Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst? I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of xxxchurch.com, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here: http://www.cnn.com/2...esus/index.html .

In a nutshell, he ac...


Red Pill, Blue Pill, Green Pill, Fix You Up Cocktail

Posted by zomberina , 21 March 2015 · 275 views

Red Pill, Blue Pill, Green Pill, Fix You Up Cocktail It was one of those little paper cups that one can put ketchup or tartar sauce in. A white little bowl of pressed edges and a crimped rim. Almost origami like. Just a shallow condiment cup that, at its bottom, held two impossibly small pills that held too many promises to believe.

Help me sleep.
Help me calm down.
Help me have control.
Help me feel norma...


The Badge Of Survival

Posted by zomberina , 16 March 2015 · 234 views

The Badge Of Survival As requested, a compilation of some of my essays are now in eBook format. There are fourteen total compositions, nine of which are new and not published until now. This short book focuses on some of my reflections of childhood abuse, loss of religion, and so on. I know most who read my experiences enjoy them simply because one can relate. http://www.ex-ch...


Where Am I Again?

Posted by zomberina , 11 March 2015 · 232 views

Where Am I Again? A lot of politicians and congressional members have been making the headlines in some of the worst ways lately. Headline making behavior like writing treasonous sounding letters of hate and rebellion against diplomatic talks directly to Iranian leadership. Making the phrase "climate change" an unrecognized term when talking about Earth science. Trying to...
