Hitchens get's it right: Right incantations equal permission to murder

I found a remarkable statement in a recent article by Christopher Hitchens about the incident in Pakistan.

Now look at the grinning face of Mumtaz Qadri, the man who last week destroyed a great human being. He did not explain. He boasted. As "a slave of the…

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…

Arabic antisemitism - forget Muhammad cartoons

Whenever "insults" against Islam come up i hear complaints by Muslims that people don't respect their prophet, don't respect Allah and don't respect the Arabic culture (being the main classical home location of that religion).…

Another one to bite the dust because of peoples love of Allah

Blasphemy laws?
In order to protect the divine?
Or rather in order to kill people of different opinion?

Hajj Streamlines Ritual Slaughter

I mistakenly thought the term "streamline" would be related to "streaming" the slaughter to people in an audience.

Me poor fool should have known better. I guess my english starts to perish after years of nonuse.

Anyway .... as disgusting as streaming would have been ... streamlining doesn't seem to be so much better.

Freedom of Oppression

The creator of the Draw Mohammed Day, Molly Norris, has been driven into hiding after the FBI accessed the death threats against her by Mulsims, and recommended she go into hiding.

Norris has taken the FBIs adivce and has gone ghost on her own dime - the government didn't even offer witness protection.

So what does this mean? It means the Islamic concept of the Dhimmi has been accepted by the American government. People like Norris are second…

Superstition of the creation

Superstition of the creation

According to Quran, Islamists insist that Allah has created 7 skies and 7 earths, and what is in between (the whole universe), According to Quran that Allah has created the first sky as a ceiling of earth, and has created the other planets and stares as decoration or embellishment of earth laid on the that ceiling which is the earth’s sky. In deed a very beautiful fancy, fiction, imagination, and optimism by Quran. All those things have been don for… Continue

Pastor Maury Davis quick to condemn others considering violent past

Senior Pastor Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church, a megachurch in Madison, today condemned President Obama on his Twitter feed for being "pro-Islam." He went on to say that he "can't imagine Christ saying one good thing about any other faith."

Without pointing out the most glaring things that are wrong with this man's statements, it should be noted that Pastor Davis was convicted of first-degree…

It's Time to Lose the Naïveté

The following is a piece I wrote for another board after a prolonged and largely fruitless discussion with a pair of young, indoctrinated theists, whose naivete not just about their beliefs and religions but how those beliefs and religions interact with our world was downright frightening. I found that I was moved to write a rebuttal to their insistent cluelessness, and have further opted to bring that post here.

To us, most of this post is intuitively obvious. Kindly…

TN Lt. Gov. calls Islam a cult. And what is Christianity exactly?

With mere days before the primary election and with early voting underway, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey is making controversial remarks about Islam. One could argue that he doesn't have a large Muslim constituency to offend, but that should not excuse a current public official from making degrading comments of questionable validity.

Ramsey was quoted by Talking Points Memo as having said, "Now, you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it…

Ground Zero mosque - why not?

There’s a lot of argument going on about the plan to build a community center with a mosque near Ground Zero in NYC. First of all, it’s NEAR. Not AT. An important distinction – I would oppose building any singular religious center there as people from all faiths and no faiths at all died there. It is, by virtue of what happened there, a most solemn…
