My kind of petition
You have to love the French. I like the way they think. Apart from the bloody mess of their Revolution, and their tendency to allow horrible dictators a crack at running their country, every once in a while they do something remarkable (like inventing the metric system).
Recently, a group of Atheists in France have created a petition to ensure that both Bibles and Korans have to be sold with a warning label that would read:
This book contains sexist, homophobic, sectarian and crime-inducing passages. It is necessary to set it back in its historical context knowing it was written before the Middle-Ages”.
I love it! If you have some time, go to the site and sign their petition. I realize we’re unlikely to win this one but hey, it’s worth a shot, right?
