Rainbow Parenting Beyond Belief: On Raising Ethical, Caring Kids Without Religion
Very often atheists are criticized* for their life choice, being told we're unethical, immoral, bad parents, or potentially bad parents if we have not yet had children.
I happened upon this book and I thought to share it here, for those who may be parents, pregnant or looking for an answer to all those accusations. Smile (The least of which would be, look at what good God has done for the world, given all the headlines and the present state of human affairs on a planet primarily populated by Theists!WinkIdea Of course, a God that's a Sadist and serial killer, in his "own words", has a lot to do with that. )

That's the point. The Schocktruppen are the elite corps of the Reich forces in the Operation: TANNHAUSER world. Alternate-history WWI where the Reich forces never lost on account of having discovered black magic.

My old avatar was H. P. Lovecraft. I've been thinking about switching back, or maybe to something from Fallout: New Vegas, but I haven't chosen yet.
