7th July 2010

“No set of religious beliefs should be accorded a special status in the European Union. To remain tolerant of all religious beliefs the Union must remain separate and independent of all faith organisations. In this way, we can continue to build a European democratic space where everyone, of all religious persuasions, can be accommodated in full freedom.”

Proinsias De Rossa MEP

    I wish that I lived in a country where it was illegal to advertise you religiosity when campaigning. I wanted to secede and build my own little atheist/ agnostic/ freethought society. Maybe a nice little island… We’d have the best education, the best doctors and people would get along (barring the minor personality differences)… Sigh. One can dream… Besides rallying up atheists is, after all, like herding cats.

    Maybe not in our lifetime, but the way religion is taking over the nation, I’m certain that Texas will secede (it already has an official Jesus Day, June 10, created by GWB) and take the Southern Baptist States with it. I’m sure it will be a peaceful secession. No matter how deep into our genetic code science delves, there will always be individuals hard-wired to “see beyond” the world of physics.Initially it’s denial of our mortality, and as such, religion will always be reborn in new generations of humans. America must enact a firm Separation of Church and State.

    Great. Democracy will ensure that all the bloodsuckers will have equal access. What of the rights of those who wish not to partake?

    I think it’s time to promote a world wide, “Learn the Basics of Science” day. December 25th sounds like a good choice.

    Europe to a large extent has already given Islam “special status” because of the fear of terror.

  7. solomon Says:

    Not because of the fear of terror. Its because of the beauty of Islam.

  8. Braathwaat Says:

    Solomon, islam is a pox on the world. Wherever islam raises it’s ugly, brutal head, suffering and ignorance always follow
