Being gay in Iraq is deadly

If you think the struggle for acceptance is tough on gays in America, just imagine how hard it must be for these guys. Although the report says there may be hundreds dead, that number itself is just a rough approximation. I'm sure they are in fact much higher, considering how violent the retributions have been so far. If you don't think this has anything to do with religion and the culture of homophobia it ...

Iraqi militia torturing and killing gays

It's bad enough the situation is Iraq is a mess; now we have to deal with the knowledge the Iraqi military is engaging in some sick and twisted tactics to torture and kill homosexuals in the country: “A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using ‘Iranian gum.’ …Yina Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, ...

Things are heating up in Iraq

It's never good news when Iraq makes the front page of the news. That's usually because we've become so accustomed to tragedy, that daily events, bombings, and massacres are casually relegated to a dark and lonely corner of most mainstream media sites. Thursday was particularly brutal, as a female rights activist was beheaded in her home. Violence against women has been escalating, and is unlikely to stop. ...

And the Mother of the Year Award Goes to…

What do you do when your uppity, independent minded 19 year old daughter has the gall to refuse an arranged marriage with a stranger twice her age? Why, you burn her with a hot spoon, that's what! What better way to preserve your cultural heritage than by torturing your loved ones into submission. Hey, isn't that what Islam means? Yusra Farhan won't be winning any "Mother of the Year" awards, especially con ...

Michele Bachmann is worried about bestiality

Remember how American elections are never about issues that are actually relevant to the health of the nation in general? Even while your economy continues to tank, politicians seem totally unconcerned that The Federal Reserve gave American banks over 7 trillion dollars with a negligible interest rate, or that the protracted War in Afghanistan and Iraq has cost them another 1.29 trillion. No, the most impor ...

Honor Killing was totally justified says shitty father

Every so often, I hear someone claim that honor killings have nothing to do with Islam. While it's true that the practice is actually older than the religion (it is, after all, the "new kid on the block" compared to the other two Abrahamic Religions), it seems as though this barbaric ritual has found fertile ground in this religion. While the practice has its roots in much older Arab patriarchal societies t ...

UN votes to have Gays lose Protection against Execution

Seems like every other day, the UN proves just how much it's willing to cater to the demands of irrational and prejudiced nations. The latest scandal involves 79 countries that have taken upon that have taken upon themselves the task of "eradicating" homosexuality. The step backwards in human rights was the amendment of a resolution against unlawful executions that removed gays from this prohibition. ...thi ...

Muslims furious over life conviction for MP stabber

Roshonara Choudhry would still be continuing her studies to become a teacher, if she hadn't been seduced by Islamic fundamentalism. Instead of living a comfortably being a contributing member of society, she'll be spending her life in jail for the attempted murder of MP Stephen Timms: Choudhry stabbed Mr Timms, 55, with a kitchen knife at his constituency surgery. She told officers she had intended to kill ...

World Nut Daily does it again

Do you not rejoice at the endless display of insanity that is the World Net Daily? I am utterly in awe of this website's ability to draw such a huge audience, while simultaneously being one of the ugliest, more poorly presented idiot "news" sites on the planet. It looks like the late 90's puked all over this thing. Today's crusty old man with a religious chip on his shoulder is one David Kupelian, whose art ...

British military comes to its senses, bans useless “bomb detectors”

If you're not a regular visitor to randi.org (that's famous skeptic James Randi's website), you might not know about their fight against dangerous quackery; more specifically, their attempts to expose bogus "bomb detectors" that are nothing more than dowsing devices. The device in question, called the ADE-651, has no electronic components to speak of and has a rather unimpressive looking antenna on it. This ...
