Suggested Obama Speech Draft: Muslims Must Learn Tolerance

Good evening. Tonight I speak, as always, to my fellow Americans…but also to the entire Muslim world, from those who think theirs is a religion of peace…to the perpetrators of the ongoing insanity of blasphemy laws, jihads, and fatwas – all of you who call yourselves Muslims.

I want to talk to you about the recent resurgence of Muslim insanity.  Actually, most of Islam is insanity, but the same is true of all religions, and that’s beside the point.

Sometimes Muslims just go…

9/11/12

Yesterday embassies in Egypt and Libya attacked. Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was killed. Secretary of State Clinton said, "there is never any justification for violent acts of this kind." Why did this happen? Apparently a few found an amateurish video criticizing Islam and its prophet too much to bear.

I am not sure what would "fix" this, and I suppose no one does and everyone has their own idea. But I am certain that another war won't change anything.

Three Things I (Think I) Know About 9/11

Of the many, many things there are to know about 9/11, here are three that I hang on to.  Other suggestions are welcome.  What is not fact about 9/11 is voluminous: the Jews did it, the government did it, they hate our freedoms, etc., etc.  But here are three (proposed) facts:

(1) The horror could have been prevented.  Every indication is that the government knew about Muslim men being trained to fly planes.  It is common knowledge…

Some of the commenters to this blog have asked, "How is jealousy related to religion?" I can't totally answer this question in a short blog entry, but the connection is deep and strong. Jealousy is taught and encouraged by all the patriarchal religions. Whether Hindu or Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or Mormon, all claim the woman is subordinate to the man and that the man is responsible for mate guarding his female(s). It is fundamentally based on the notion of ownership and possession. The…

The Cult of One Billion - Is It Already Too Late?

“Those who love God are not always the friends of their fellow men.”

Robert Ingersoll

“When I think of all the harm [the Bible] has done, I despair of ever writing anything to equal it.”

Oscar Wilde

Anne Graham Lotz Helping to Create a Boston Bible Party

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, took time out from her swim in the shallow end of the Graham family gene pool this weekend to assure everyone that she would NEVER vote for an Atheist.



This isn’t particularly unusual. The Graham family has a long-held antipathy toward Atheists and other minorities. Son Franklin Graham entertains rather birther-like suspicions that maybe Barack Obama isn’t a Christian.

I had to share this with y'all...I found it to be hilarious and to be another ridicule against the 9/11 conspiracy theorists

Opening Rant

First, a rave:  I am most grateful for Atheist Nexus.  Since effectively rebirthing myself as an atheist (decades ago, I was an agnostic), I've had no place to voice opinions, reactions or thoughts, where others might share them and perhaps further stretch my brain with their reflections.  Thank you, A/N.

Now, a rant:  There is little if anything more sacred to me, in all the history and legacy of the United States of America, than the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.  The most…

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper says "Islamicism biggest threat to Canada" & Tony Blair says "Iran is our Real Enemy"

It is refreshing to see that our northern border ally has too come to see the true threat facing humanity in the 21st century. It is also refreshing to see the visionary and bold former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom taking a clear stance against the illegal regime of the Islamic Republic - especially since he has strong influence with the Quartet - I am feeling more and more confident that the international community will soon stand more firmly with the Syrian people…

Not again...Father guns down 6-daughters in Islamic "honor killing"

While the tragedy in Norway happened by a lone wolf - let's not forget the true horrors of Islam. Please tell me people - when does something like this happen among Christians? Let's not be politically correct in realizing the real threats facing humanity as a whole is not "Christian" or "right-wing" terror but Islamic terror...

Sam Harris - Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

image

At certain points near the extremity of human evil it becomes difficult, and perhaps pointless, to make ethical distinctions. However, I cannot shake the feeling that detonating a large bomb in the center of a peaceful city with the intent of killing vast numbers of innocent people was the lesser of Anders Behring Breivik’s transgressions last week. It seems to me that it required greater malice, and even less…

TERRORIST ATTACK IN NORWAY!!

Fortunately it seems as if no one has been killed...but I wonder who committed the bombing? Why does one suspect it as retaliation for the Muhammad cartoons? So much with "peace and tolerance"

Edit: it seems as if at least one person has been killed with scores injured.
