Law dances the fine line between religion and insanity

“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

Europe, like Oklahoma City know the score about...

Dr Michael Stone, an expert on forensic psychiatry at Columbia University, New York, said it was a conclusion no psychiatrist in the US would have reached. "I have the impression that 'insane' in Scandinavia is more or less synonymous with 'crazy', which casts a wider net than 'insane' as a legal term," he said.

Road Rage

"You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive."



- quote by Steven Wright



NY drivers are assholes. It's a fact. You get cut off, tailgated in the middle of a highway, swerving, unnecessary speeding! Once your swear palette gets filled, you turn into a narcissistic impatient driver yourself. It's the nature of the beast.

Religion - The House of Insanity built on a Foundation of Ignorance

Maybe it’s getting to me, but all the stories of cult leaders raping and swapping children and wives; Mormon fathers beating their daughters; Muslims stoning to death a 13 year old rape victim because she lost her virginity; Catholic bishops making a 9 year old rape victim carry to term: etc..., you start to wonder if the insanity will ever end (and how).

"Theocratic Sect Prays for Real Armageddon"

I'm perhaps a little too worried about this, but I found it rather horrifying. I've heard of similar cults, but this is the first I've heard of this one. I know it's a long article, but read some of it, at least. I think it's good for us to be reminded of just how crazy people can get.

Riaz Ahmed Shah: i would like to see god grow an amputated limb back!



We'll yeah, that is the standard response to the god-freaks that should shut them up. But...



I've known this guy for years at my local. We've never discussed either religion or politics. Just talk pub crap, like sport.

Finally! JESUSPAN!

My life has obviously been devoid of joy and happiness until this very moment. I've been eating my bread lightly toasted without a religious figure lovingly pressed into it! How did I ever manage to enjoy carbs until now?!
