Afghan women are pelted by rocks at protest

A couple of days ago, I wrote a passionate entry stating my opposition to the Canadian government's involvement in Afghanistan. It was in response to their new laws that make it impossible for women to refuse sex from their husbands, as well as making women eligible for marriage immediately following menstruation. As far as I'm concerned, these two laws alone make both rape and sexual abuse to children lega ...

Pharmacists sue for right to deny medication

There's a disturbing new trend in the US. Pharmacists are attempting to prevent the sale of the morning after pill because of their belief life begins at conception. In Washington state, the government has taken the position it is illegal to deny any care based on religious convictions, due to the simple fact that their profession is not subject to theocratic moralization. This hasn't pleased everyone, and ...

Does loving dogs make you a genocidal monster?

Ok, that may sound like a stupid question, but let me refer you to the picture above. Hitler loved his dog, and he was responsible for the Holocaust. Surely, according to this logic, I've made a powerful case against owning canines. If you think I've gone insane, rest assured I'm only trying to prove a point. There's an article on Proud Atheist that tries to debunk the claim Christians make about Hitler's p ...

Rick Warren thinks atheists hate their dads

I've always found it amusing how religious folks try to peg atheists. Most of them think we don't believe in God simply because we were spurned in some way, and in our pettiness, we rejected God. I won't deny there are definitely more than a few atheists who essentially hold their views more out of spite than reason, but it's certainly not true for most of us. Pastor Rick Warren would disagree with me. He's ...

Canadian government isn’t doing the right thing

I've never understood why the Canadian government is so adamant about keeping certain immigrants while simultaneously trying to kick others out, especially when the people we send back to their home countries are in danger. While we harbor ex Nazis, mafia criminals, and other genocidal monsters, we also try to get rid of good people who seek our protection. Roohi Tabassum is an illegal immigrant who says sh ...

More honor killings in Germany

Here's another tragic honor killing in Germany, this time by the woman's own brother. According to reports, he lured her to the countryside, where he strangled her unconscious with a clothes line before beating her to death. Her crime? Well, it turns out the family was trying to set up an arranged marriage and found out that not only wasn't she a virgin, but she had also undergone at least one abortion. Tha ...

Playing with fire gets you burned

The attacks of September 11th, 2001 had a profound impact on Beverly Giesebrecht. Unlike most of her Canadian peers, Beverly felt the attacks were more than justified, and she quickly converted to Islam and began work on a website with clear pro-Taliban leanings. She traveled to Egypt for two years to study the Qur'an before finally ending up in Pakistan where she met up with them. The meeting, however, app ...

Afghanistan’s government plans to introduce scary laws

I've spoken many times about the fact Canada needs to leave this country. Proportionally, we've taken the heaviest casualties, and even with the hard work accomplished, the country still seems bent on converting itself into a theocratic hellhole. Here are some of the proposed amendments to their constitution President Karzai is trying to pass: Article 132 says. “Unless the wife is ill or has any kind of ill ...

The Godfather Dilemma

I don't have very many religious friends, so I haven't often been put in a position where my beliefs were really challenged. I received an email from a friend recently concerning a very interesting dilemma he's facing (I'm including most of the letter intact since James is an excellent writer): [T]here's something atheism-related that I'd be interested to get your input on. In fact, if you feel it's a topic ...
