The Rage Against Women Continues

When is the last time you had a WTF? moment? For me it was just a little while ago when I saw this on my Iphone. I know Mak had just done a post on X-ian love, well here you go Mak, a great example.

It pains me to see women continually demonized by slack jawed fundamentalists. Clearly the bible is a good book in this case. Right? It does appear to be their justification for brutal murder. I would urge everyone to read the whole story, but the short of it is, people thought that certain women were responsible for a measles outbreak. Because they were witches. Of course we all know the babble says we should not suffer any witches. So the good x-ians they are, they went about not suffering witches, in a most brutal barbaric fashion. That’s what I call some good x-ians there… You don’t have to be religious to hate women, but it sure seems to help.

Oh, apparently they paid a witch finder to seek out these witches. Wait, what? Yep a witch finder. How does one become a witch finder exactly? What is wrong with people? I swear every day goes by I think more and more we are all doomed to the ignorance of the many.

P.S. If you are not much of a fan of WTF stoopid, do not read the comments there. Because many of them are just that.

Quote of the Month

I am feeling a bit whimsical today, but the quote is one to live by. I had heard this one many years ago and have no idea who came up with it. With no further ado:

“Never believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see.”

If there were such a thing as a skeptics bible I think this one would be embedded somewhere in chapter one.

Those Poor Wittle Christians

Some kid in Singapore was just found guilty of insulting x-ians. What a joke. X-ians insult themselves.

I guess it’s better to be found guilty of insulting those pathetic x-ians in Singapore than it is to be a free thinking blogger in Bangladesh. I’m sure most of my regular friends here will have already seen this.

There is no place in this world for people who feel so insulted that they feel the need to defend their non existent gods. If their gods were so hot, they could damn well defend themselves. Right after they showed up of course.

Religion deserves ridicule. It literally has nothing going for it but “we said so, therefore it is true.”  That’s all they have got. They have built their empires, their hopes, their dreams and desires upon a foundation of nothing. Then they demand respect? They demand not to be insulted? They demand to be taken seriously? When you silly religiots stop believing in your invisible friends, then perhaps you can sit at the table with the grownups. Then perhaps we can take you seriously. Then perhaps you deserve some respect. Until then, you deserve all of the mock and ridicule you get. And then some.

I should add, that I don’t make a habit of insulting anyone. Religious or otherwise, I got no beef with anyone who wants to be religious. Right up to the point where you want to legislate your religion upon me. Right up to the point where you want your fantasies taught in school. Right up to the point where you make fools of yourselves for being insulted.
