The evils of Missionary work

A recent article on haveyoureadthebible.com on missionary work left me both angry and disgusted. If you've got the time, I highly recommend reading it if you want your blood to boil a little (especially the pictures of these morons on dune buggies and hiking trips). I never grew up in a particularly religious environment, thanks largely to my anti-theist father, so my interactions with missionaries occurred ...

UN fail

When I was a younger ideologue, I used to think the the United Nation was a force for good in the world, providing aid and protection to citizens of countries ravaged by war, famine, and instability. I have since realized this institution is a bloated corpse, capable only of furthering the interests of the few countries who have a permanent seat on the security council. If anyone else in the UN decides to d ...

Sectarian peace in all its glory

Nigeria is currently the battleground between Christianity and Islam. Since last year, over 2000 people have died fighting. Despite communities trying to sign various peace treaties with one another, every once in a while they just start attacking one another again. It's a perfect example of the kind of division and strife that mutually incompatible beliefs cause. The latest incident involves 18 Christians ...

That’s putting it mildly

Canadians are a bunch of sobbing vaginas (I say this being an actual citizen of the country). We're always paranoid of acting in an abusive or forceful manner that we allow all kinds of ridiculous shit to happen on our watch. The most recent example involves a dozen Muslim families living in Winnipeg that have complained the music and co-ed physical education programs are un-Islamic. Rather than tell them t ...

Freedom is slavery

The lady in the tent is absolutely right! Why, if it wasn't for Islam's liberation of women, they wouldn't even be allowed to hold the placards they probably can't even read. In the immortal words of George Orwell, War is Peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength! ...

Rape victim dies after public flogging

Imagine you're a 14 year old girl and you get raped by your much older cousin. Now imagine that you're living in a country ruled by Sharia Law. While in the secular world you have the chance of some justice (like the incarceration of the felon), if you happen to live in a country where the religion of Islam is supreme, the best you can hope for is to survive the 100 lashes you would receive for the crime of ...

Interfaith dialog at its finest

It's pretty rare I agree with the Pope, but he's recently been calling on Pakistan to repeal their insane blasphemy laws, and I'm behind him on this one. His calls were met, unsurprisingly, with a friendly "mind your own fucking business": The pope has given a statement today that has not only offended the 180 million Muslims in Pakistan, it has also hurt the sentiments of the entire Islamic world," said Ha ...

Sigh

From the BBC: Men and women have been banned from shaking hands in a district of Somalia controlled by the Islamist group al-Shabab. Under the ban imposed in the southern town of Jowhar, men and women who are not related are also barred from walking together or chatting in public. It is the first time such social restrictions have been introduced. The al-Shabab administration said those who disobeyed the ne ...

Pakistan is fucked up

Imagine your loved one gets gunned down for trying to reform a law that makes the lives of people visibly worse, and the murderer is showered with rose petals and celebrated for his actions? Well, for that to happen, you'd have to be in Pakistan, and the law you would have to try and reform would be the blasphemy kind. Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab, was attempting to reform the laws in an effort to ...

Harry Potter Actress beaten, threatened for dating Non-Muslim

There's an interesting Cracked article entitled "5 Ridiculous Things You Probably Believe About Islam", and while I thought it fair to point out religion hasn't always been a gigantic problem for this world, it fundamentally glosses over the fact in many parts of the world, the dangerous combination of faith and tradition leads to theĀ suppression, torture and murder of women. It's true Christianity, on a wh ...
