Bible verses religious people don't mention or preach about + art for the verses

Have you all checked out "Awkward Moments Children's Bible" yet? It's an Amazon award-winning book and concept. No, I don't own shares of this book or are related to it's creators but I really, really LOVE the whole concept asnd I often share the illustrations on my Facebook page. I'd like to see the author put the art+verse on the backs of T-shirts (large design so easily read) as I'd proudly wear that in public to get people to think - I'd even purposedly stand in lines and position myself…

War on Christmas: $80 blasphemous ugly sweater giveaway contest!

Christmas isn’t a big deal here in Taiwan, so it’s hard to get “in the season” or riled up by this “War on Christmas” controversy. But I want to celebrate the meaning of Christmas by giving away two things I really want, rather than buying them for myself.

First up is this amazing Christmas “ugly-sweater” with Baphomet on it.…

Blasphemy vs. Free Speech

To the point, blasphemy laws intrude on the right of free speech and reflect a religious affectation meant to control what others say about theologically based matters. The idea of offending religious sensibilities to the point of punishment is in and of itself disgusting and distasteful, but…

The Battle for Zachary’s Brain, VII: Desecration

There is nothing that is too obvious of an absurdity to be firmly planted in the human head as long as you begin to instill before the age of five by constantly repeating it with an air of great seriousness. 

– Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Followers of the riveting “Zachary’s Brain” series of posts will know that the narrative is not a gothic horror tale…but something that is just as disturbing: resisting the religious programming of a child.

 His…

i will not drink the blood of a fool

when the glory of the lord shall shine

and blind men to his crimes

as the lies that he had promised me

would bind me to his tree

when all the angels in the dark

would brand me with the devil’s mark

i’d curse and cry with my last breath

‘i’ve still a half a bottle left!’

leave me alone, save someone else

i love my sinful, wicked self

take off from me this pit bull’s leash

save it for a pederastic priest

what good is my soul…

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…

Hamza Kashgari: "satanic tweets" result in calls for the death penalty

Until last weekend 23 years old Kashgari Hamza was just a young and upcoming journalist from Saudi Arabia with quite a fan base following him not only in the newspapers but also on twitter. Currently he is a man who has to fear for his life with a saudi government prohibiting all newspapers from publishing any texts by Kashgari. More than 10.000 people on facebook demand his death and it is…

Blasphemy is a right (says the UN)

What a lucky day. By chance i found something that obviously escaped my notice before and which i haven't found much reported in the media either.

Already last month the UN issued a statement concerning the freedom of speech in relation with the human rights convention.

 

Here is the good part (emphasis mine):

Pakistan's deadly blasphemy-seeking vigilantes

Mustafa Qadri argues that the blasphemy laws of Pakistan are just as much a threat as the Taliban.
After reading his article i can't but agree.

Pakistan: decline into barbarism?

Over the past months i have posted about Pakistan for several times. Especially the blasphemy laws caused and cause much trouble in this country.

The real question however is not if there is such a law and how to get rid of it but rather if such a law is backed by the people or not.



No matter what you think about such a law, if the people themselves want such a law, if the society that resides in a country is one that causes such laws then it is not the law that poses the main… Continue

Pakistan again: Doctor arrested for blasphemy

Following we have a demonstration of where stupidity in unison with religious laws can lead.

A doctor in Pakistan was arrested for blasphemy. What did that guy do?

Did he insult the "prophet" directly?

Did he make derogative remarks about Allah or Islam?

No. Far…
