Man, there are so many shitty things about this story. The fact that he, and many other “Christian” bands, are just con-men who dupe their gullible followers for money is the least of it.
And now he and the Christian media are using his atheism as an excuse for why he has no morals and first cheated on his wife and then hired a hit-man to kill her.
As he continued to fall deeper into sin, Lambesis asked a personal trainer at his local gym if he knew any hitmen that could kill his wife.
Let me clue you in here, if this guy lacked the basic moral decency to, you know, NOT hire someone to kill his wife, it sure as hell wasn’t because of “sin” or his atheism. It’s because he had no morals to begin with. This guy’s a sociopath, and is STILL conning the Christian base by justifying his actions through his non-belief. If he lost his morality when he lost God, it was never there in the first place.
This is why, as an intersectional feminist and atheist, there will never be enough distance between me and the atheist community. Because these are the people they hold up as heroes. I also remember a quote from him a while back about how atheists today are discriminated against at the level that LGBTQ people were in the 50s. Ummmmmmm
This is why there needs to be a second wave of the atheist movement that’s a true Humanist movement. The old order of Dawkins, Harris, et. al. needs to be replaced by progressive humanist writers and thinkers. But none have reached the prominence of these out-of-touch relics who fight against religion, but have no ability to construct positive social justice and reform beyond “religion=bad.” Because while they fight religious institutions, they don’t understand the place of privilege they speak from, or how institutional racism and sexism actually work.
IBM is one of the oldest tech companies in the world. Now, it’s banking on one system to be a major cash cow: a supercomputer called Watson. IBM hopes Watson will be as revolutionary as the personal computer or the mainframe. And they’re making a big investment in the supercomputer, creating the Watson Group in January and backing it with a billion dollar investment.
This looks like a Futurama episode come to life.
