Offensive

So, how long do you think it will take before the atheist blogs get flagged by someone as "offemsive"?

If they do, let's return the favour with the religious blogs.

This actually reminds me of the problems M-Atheists has been having. It's an atheist group within Mensa. Yahoo! has twice in the last month put them in the "Adult" category, the second time, just days after moving us back out after complaints from our list owner. Supposedly, they did the first time after "complaints". Complaints? It's a closed list. Only Mensans can join, and everyone is carefully screened to weed out the trolls. Who complained?

So, you'll forgive my cynicism.

the "wisdom" of religion

And people wonder why I dislike religion.

Protesters want teacher executed. You know the one who did something--naming a teddy bear Mohammed--which isn't even banned in the Quran.

The agency reports that some chanted: "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."

Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri, a prominent cleric and hardliner, told worshippers Friday at the Martyrs Mosque: "Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan. But we welcome imprisonment and expulsion," according to AP.


Pope says atheists are to blame for the world's worst woe. That must make those floundering Catholics feel a whole lot better knowing that they have someone else to beat up on, someone doing worse than they are.

What a way to start my morning.
