Hi! I'm JJ (aka Mama JJ). I'm a secular parent, an atheist and a feminist. I'm fiercely pro-choice and about as far left as you can get on the Liberal to Conservative scale. If you hang out with me you'll get thoughts on all of these subjects and occasionally excerpts from conversations with my 9-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter. I tag all of the conversations with "heard today" (links up above) and all the parenting stuff gets tagged with "Secular Parenting." My URL comes from the phrase "Teach children how to think, not what to think" which is my parenting philosophy in a nutshell. If you have a question, my inbox is always open and anon is usually on. Welcome!

I’m almost positive Kim posted this video last week, but I can’t find it again in order to reblog from her.  It’s powerful.  I remember reading in horror many of the Bible stories mentioned in the video when I started to really question religion six years ago.  To this day, I cannot fathom how anyone that has actually studied the Bible could possibly say and believe “God is Love.”   ~JJ
