Afghanistan is Messed up

I don't like to talk about Afghanistan, mostly because as a Canadian, my government has armed forces over there being killed for a country that sentences journalists to death for speaking out against the Qur'an. Pervez Kambaksh is a student journalist who wrote an essay condemning some of the more sexist verses of the Qur'an, and was trying to speak on women's rights. The 23 year old was sentenced to death, ...

Violence being blamed on video games again

I'm an avid gamer, and I've often talked about the demonizing of video games in today's society. It seems like every time there's an incident involving some fucked up teenager attacking another, some group comes out of the woodwork and accuses the video game industry of corrupting youth. Today it's in England, which is proposing adding a tax on violent games. The man behind the idea, Richard Taylor, lost hi ...

Atheist bus success!

Just when you think your country can't get anything right, something happens that makes you thankful everything hasn't totally gone to shit. Today's bit of good news comes from Ottawa, which has now approved the atheist bus campaign after previously refusing it on the grounds it would offend people. Here's the best quote from the article: ...Cullen went on to say that just because an opinion makes people un ...

Think about all the things religious people already ignore: evolution, the Constitution, sexual preferences (that one literally scares them to death); they even ignore parts of their own religious text they find inconvenient. I thi ...

More evil from the Catholic Church

There's always something controversial going on with Catholics. These guys are out of touch with modern life, and as a consequence, they always do something stupid and plain horrible enough to make the news. Today it's the archbishop Don Jose Cardoso Sobrinho who excommunicated the Brazilian doctors who performed an abortion on a 9 year old rape victim. Sobrinho has no concern over the rape itself, since he ...

Creationism in Hampshire (revised)

I had originally written this story under the mistaken assumption that it was in New Hampshire, when it was in fact in Hampshire, England! Thanks Glenn for the clarification. I suppose it was my prejudice that England would never stoop to such lows, but I have seen the error in my ways. Of all the places thinking about introducing creationist material into classrooms, the last place I thought it would show ...

Terrorism has different meanings

I read an interesting article on the Christian Science Monitor about the percentage of people in Muslim countries who favor bombing civilians, and the numbers reveal far more Americans are willing to commit this act than they are. If you need this put in perspective, consider the image we have in the West of a terrorist is a Muslim guy wearing a dynamite covered belt bomb, while in Muslim countries a terror ...
