The Pope’s spokesman denied any duty to answer about this — they’re too busy dealing with *actual* moral problems, such as gay marriage and Charlie Hebdo’s drawings.
Let’s recall the words of Pope Francis exactly a year ago, when he *advocated* violence in the name of god just after the terrorist attack at Charlie Hebdo:
Do you wonder how would it be if everyone with a YouTube account uploaded their own copy? Just to be sure everyone knows the bullying and intimidation tactics ISOC endorses when someone says something they dislike!
I’m sorry, I won’t tiptoe around Islam or any other superstition with a sacred book that literally advocates for the suffering of others, I won’t give any irrational beliefs special treatment — that’s religious privilege, and those who endulge it have a share of responsability in the state of affairs today.
Tonight, Paris lived a series terrorist attacks. They were carried out by Muslims who shouted Allah Ackbar before shooting.
The Mexican Supreme Court legalized recreational use of marijuana and Colombia’s Constitutional Court legalized adoption by gay couples.
All religion is political and tries to impose itself on the rest of society, so there’s no actual difference between “Islamism” and “Islam”. It’s just politically correct crap.
The guy can’t even tweet a *fact* without having a shitstorm coming his way. A common request is the ridiculous and patronizing idea that Dawkins should leave Twitter.
His only ‘crime’ was to have an asshole priest of a neighbor.
To date, they have published 19 issues and I hope they continue to exist in order to publish many more — I hope they will keep publishing even by the time when we will have recovered our right to mock and criticize any belief without paying with our lives, and when the words “blasphemy” and “Islamophobia” are only bitter memories of when the illiterate and bigoted tried to shove their sacred concepts.
None of the alleged problems of legalizing prostitution disappears with the prohibition approach. But many of the problems of criminalizing sex work disappear with legalization.
The initiative has been strongly opposed by ridiculous pseudofeminists who don’t understand that prostitution is not sex slavery.
Yesterday, Guatemalan Congress discussed a bill that would make Biblical ‘education’ compulsory. So the Asociación Guatemalteca de Humanistas Seculares (Guatemalan…
This is not just a bad sign for free speech, but it is a bad precedent for science — what will ‘The Lancet’ do when very picky churchgoers choose to be offended with the conclusions of one of their papers? Judging by this bad decision, those will also be removed, lest they offend the illiterate.
This is what science has found out about same sex parenting.
All marriages should be contracts between two or more consenting adults of any combination of sexes — now, *that* is equality!
I want to say a few words that should be more than enough for any civilized person who has not lived under a rock so far in 2015 to understand the paramount importance of drawing any concept without pandering to the ridiculous restrictions of barbaric superstitions:
via The New York Times:
How are we supposed to be the ones who civilly dissect ill-designed arguments if we’re not even capable of telling us apart from the very people who can’t do civility?
I’d like to congratulate Atheist Ireland for taking the lead in dissociating from a person that hurts our cause and thinks he’s entitled to just because he got readers. I’m following suit.
