“If we fall silent – if we leave the basic human values of free speech, feminism and gay rights undefended in the face of violent religious mobs – then many, many more people will be hurt in the long term. Today, we have to use our right to criticise religion – or lose it.”

Johann Hari1863 – 1952

    Try standing on any street corner in any muslim controlled nation and proclaiming that there is no truth to there being a god and see how long you live. The truth is that you most likely you will be stoned to death by a closet Atheist whom only wishes that they could do just that very percolation. However must kill you or be later eyeballed as a possible infidel and thus subjected to that same convincing argument that one must submit, believe and blindly follow the religion of truth, peace and love as written by man. Could that be why muslin nations seem so advanced?

  2. The Heretic Says:

    Most religions (cults) are at their very base a savage concept – camouflaged in love and tolerance. It is “tolerated” now in the West to criticize religion. I believe it is our duty. In Islamic nations, it is “not tolerated” and may never be. But if we can wear down the Christian/Judeo faiths with criticism, perhaps the globalist nature of the world will help alter the tide of the fanaticism of Islam. Or maybe … the West will become so relativistic that there will be no one to fight those savages that are getting close to outnumbering us. A quandary.

    Is there not what appears to be a new world war brewing? With the US and Britain’s two “now out of office disasters” calling their self righteous corporate creation and corporate welfare scheme a “crusade” and between what appears to the outsider; a major shift in stifling the free desires and free speech in some Muslim nations by a few fundamentalist radical preachers? The whole world in now caught in the middle saying “WTF” is going on and why.

    Dear Heretic,
    Those incidents that you have cited above are not the works of a true believer, those are the works of hipocrits who poses the same heart as the disbelievers or atheists.

    Solomon.
    You say the acts are not those of a true believer but religious leaders of your faith applaud these acts and the ones who peform them.
    Why are the members of your religion not throwing these religious leaders out the mosque front doors for pushing violence in the name of your god. It seems that most members of your religion either agree or do not care.
    Clean your own house of those who claim to believe but act in violence, before attacking those who do not believe.
    When you have a religion that ACTS in peace your words will carry more weight, till then none of what you say is real.
