"Well, xians have been getting away with murder, genocide, assault, rape, child abuse, fraud, and robbery in North America for centuries, so I guess Muslims (and people who claim to understand their holey book) think they deserve the same…"
"I just signed it. Sk8ey already anticipated what I would have said: assault by ANYONE on another is already illegal -- how is it that a Muslim got off on a clear case of assault, regardless of religion or anything else? Or is this judge afraid of…"

I'm a Massachusetts native. I was raised without religion, but have long been fascinated with it and began studying it during adolescence. As a result of my studies and my own experiences, I came to believe that it was highly unlikely that God exists. If a superme being does exist, it is most certainly nothing like any religion has ever conceived. I personally am influenced by the philosophies of Anton LaVey, Ayn Rand, and Friedrich Nietzsche.
My interests include reading, music, audio, films, and video games. My favorite authors include (in no particular order) Ayn Rand, Friedrich Nietzsche, Anton LaVey, George Orwell, H.G. Wells, Philip K. Dick, Joseph Heller, Ray Bradbury, William Shakespeare, Lord Byron, and William Blake. In my musical tastes I am partial to classical composers such as Beethoven, Chopin, Tchaicovsky, Bach, and Wagner among others. My favorite bands include Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, VNV Nation, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Combichrist among others.
