- Welcome to The Secular Gospel According to Jess! In this blog you’ll find everything from cartoons that make me laugh, to quotes that inspire me, to stories of my own personal experience when it comes to dealing with religion and pretty much everything in between. The title of my blog is intended to be ironic, as one doesn’t often hear the word, “gospel”, associated with secularism, but my intent is to preach, for lack of a better word, what I think gospel should really be about: love, rationalism, fairness, equality, human rights, science and truth. Enjoy!

"I don't want to attack religious people..."
I know this blog has not taken a necessarily KIND attitude towards the antics of the fundamentally religious...
That being said, this quote by Simon Amstell, English comedian, television presenter, screenwriter and actor, really resonated with me because, when it comes down to it, we HAVE already won.
It may not seem that way. There are surely many more battles to fight. But in the end, the statistics are clear. The world is less religious than it was even a short time ago, and this trend is sure to continue.
So, "have faith", fellow atheists, and heed the wise words of Mr. Amstell, because we may all be lucky enough to one day live in a world without religion.
