The far right christians in the US love to paint themselves as self-righteous and moral far above everyone else. They love to judge and condemn others from their “family values” platform.
People who sit on hollow rickety platforms should not cast judgements. Look at the map above – the US and Saudi Arabic are the only two nations worldwide that allow children as young as 9 to be married. 9!
If we look at US states below, the majority of US states have no age floor on marriage. In these states, you could legally marry a baby. And unsurprisingly most of these are in the bible belt, where “think of the children” is often heard. Doesn’t this put a creepy spin on the phrase.
An excellent video with plenty of references from the quran and hadith.
“I was deeply saddened by the result,” Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state, said at a conference in Rome on Tuesday night. “The church must take account of this reality, but in the sense that it must strengthen its commitment to evangelisation. I think that you cannot just talk of a defeat for Christian principles, but of a defeat for humanity.”
Yet again, the world’s largest organized child molestation ring wants to lecture the world on “morality.”
You know what is truly a “defeat for humanity?” That so many people still support your organization – one that has continually proven itself to be anti-human, anti-progress, anti-knowledge, anti-independence, and anti-love.

“They are systematically beheading children,” Arabo repeated slowly. “And mothers and fathers. The world hasn’t seen an evil like this for generations.”
“There’s actually a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick… this is crimes against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of.”
Religion of peace. Yeah. I buy that. Not. What is it with fundamentalist muslims and beheadings?
The scary thing is, some “everyday” believers seem all too ready to buy into this barbarism. See this previous post.
10 year old girl violently raped by a mullah in a mosque. Now her family is considering killing her to restore their own honor.
The womens shelter she has been taken to then received death threats from the girl’s family and other mullahs. WTF?
The mullah did offer to marry her, so I guess he’s doing the right thing…
There is NO good thing in all this. The religion is faulty, the cultural tradition is faulty. The brains of these people are clearly faulty.
This excuse for a human being spends time spreading lies and stirring up hatred worldwide. He is responsible for Uganda’s recent passing of horrific gay criminalisation laws.
Watch him in action here (you will need a sick bag): http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/03/scott-lively-anti-gay-law-uganda
And he is getting away with working a tax-free political scam too in the US. A church that is also involved in politics should not be eligible for tax free status.
If there is a god, and he has an ounce of decency, he would surely strike Scott Lively dead…
A Syrian sharia court ordered a girl to be stoned to death for adultery; also known as using Facebook.
“The members of the Al-Qaeda group in Iraq, also known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) were behind the incident. … The group’s ideology is based on extremely strict interpretation of Islam. … Ironically, the Al-Nusra Front operates a Facebook account of its own.”
