Welcome to Home of Apostates!

Everyone has the right to abandon his/her religion without being persecuted or discriminated. We fight against the persecution of apostates. We stand up against religious discrimination and intolerance. It is a long way ahead but there will be a day that apostates will be able to live safely all around the world in peace and harmony with other people.

Wow.  That makes me proud of American family law.  Then, again, who knows; in some states I would think there's no prohibition of marrying at six, but only with parental permission. I gather most Muslim marriages are arranged?

Pat, I think Sam Harris had it first, if only in a footnote.

I like the late Christopher Hitchen's take on the whole "72 virgins" thing. Be careful what you wish for, because part of the package is 72 mothers-in-law.

It suggests MuhaMAD had a dirty, evil mind.

Comment by James M. Martin on November 24, 2012 at 7:48

Oh, and, duh!  Since when do we hand off our "virgins" to be deflowered by who knows whom?  The thought of it suggests pedophilia and worse.

Well, how much time would it take to go through 72 virgins if you were horny and in heaven?

Viking Don, the 72 virgins did not become livestock, though your image is much more imaginative; it was a rare type of raisin, as I recall.  It has been a while since I read Sam Harris's End of Faith, but the virgins-raisins mistranslation error was in a footnote in that book.  It has cognate to the evangelical notion of the Rapture: it is based entirely on a book in their bable by John of Patmos whose coded warning was of Nero Caesar, not anything yet to come.  Both Christians and Muslims turn out to be fooled.  There is no apocalypse short of one we make.  There is no god but Man.

VikingDon, Oh! would that be true! Sweet revenge! I am having a bit of problem getting that image out of my mind.

James, I know apostolic is a word that generates negative connotations, and I know that when I looked it up I was very surprised about the definition. Apostolic Atheist doesn't fit the dictionary, but it fits how I feel. 

Another word that fits for me is heretic:

1: a dissenter from established religious dogma; especially : a baptized member of the Roman Catholic Church who disavows a revealed truth

2: one who dissents from an accepted belief or doctrine

Careful with "apostolic," Joan, as I think that refers to something else, something we find anathema.
