Atheist Nexus has muslim matrimonials ads?

I notice with amusement that the atheist nexus website often displays muslim matrimonials ads by google, which might not have much luck with all the atheists here but seems incongruous for an non-theist advocating website.    Is the hope that there might be a few masochistic 'outreach' atheists who might try to date muslims/christians with missionary zeal?    Or is it just a necessary evil to pay for the running costs for the site?    If the athiest bus campaign was blocked in Australia by…See More

Greetings, v! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Feb. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

i love it, the flying spaghetti monster religion or the jedi religion - nice way to fill that void with something equally inane but at least transparently fun. I'm cheered by your helping your muslim friend re-evaluate her beliefs using the scripture itself. I haven't tried that but it sounds worthwhile. I agree with your thought about how hard it is to give up the label of muslim considering the risk she would be taking with her family and culture and even her life.

It sounds like you would really like to figure out a way to keep the strong atheistic consciousness that you value in Europe and not be crushed into a minority viewpoint like it is here in the U.S.. And it sounds like some strategies you are wondering about are opposing faith teaching in schools and convincing muslims to either leave their religion or leave the UK.
It is quite a challenge, isn't it, figuring out how to contend with a population whose beliefs are so irrational and yet are so deeply held.... I hope the UK and continent find a way, because right now, as far as I know, you are the only significant place on earth where atheism and the rationality that go with it are a core belief held by the majority. Not to mention your having a conscience about providing one another with health care. It would be really discouraging if you got dragged down the theistic rat hole whether it was a christian or islamic or other hyper religious faith based world view. I appreciate your concerns and commitment to keeping reason paramont in your culture.

Yes--save in the major cities, people often do look at you funny in the States if you openly admit your atheism.

On the "Islamification" of the U.K., when will the British courts rule on the legality of the sharia courts?
