    A truly shocking story in the Telegraph...

    It makes you realise how fortunate you are to live in a rational Society.

    The Taliban make Old Testament prophets sound rational.

    What was that quote from the WT saying that "secular laws prevent us from harming apostates" (or something along the lines)? Is that what they have in mind had secular law not put restrains in place...

    How aweful . Left unchecked this is the kind extremism that ALL religion has breed over the ages. I've come to the conclusion that all religion really is evil, because it will always give some a pass to think that they are superior to the others, and that they are gods chosen. Giving them them license to do all kinds of insane things. Mankind has got to defeat religion to get to the next level.

    I'll bet there were no Jdubs at that party, see how we are protected by Jehovah.

    apparently the attacks on girls trying to get an education in afghanistan are increasing.

    thankfully not all of islam is like this but i can't help but think of a certain group that tried to prevent others from reading a book in english by burning those books and the guy who printed them

    religion, when forced on others, definitely is a snare and a racket

    that's why my church of ren and stimpy will have as it's central dogma, don't be a dick
