US Law Allows Child Marriage

Legal-marriage-age-world.jpeg

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.

Religion of Peace is a Matter of Interpretation

Clearly+a+religion+of+peace+explosionsplease+add+pictures+of+explosions_192f43_5357893.jpg

We have all seen blatantly ironic pictures like this. Islam is both a religion of peace and of violence. Both those claims are concurrently true. Everything boils down to how particular believers interpret the holy books.

And therein lies the risk inherent in any religion. The gods we invent seem universally incapable of communicating clearly and precisely. It can be said that the beauty of religious texts comes from their ambiguous flowery language, full of subtle shades and rich nuance, and thus open to wildly divergent interpretations.

Or these gods are callously capricious and care not for the suffering, death, destruction their imprecise words cause.

Or, applying Occam’s Razor, these gods simply do not exist.

Muslim Feminist: The Biggest Lie Ever Told

An excellent video with plenty of references from the quran and hadith.

‘How To Make Your Wife Submit To Your Authority’

ChurchandState.org said:

The post is not called “6 Ways To Be A Fabulous Husband,” or “How To Make Sure Your Wife Knows She Is Loved.”

No.

It is called “How To Make Your Wife Submit To Your Authority.”

Reading the actual post, I can’t shake the feeling of the underlying need to control others. I guess since god seeks to control and dominate us, it is not surprising that he would command the man of the house to control and dominate his possessions.

Why Would Any Woman be a Christian?

Dusty asks a bloody good question.

Religion makes people blind to reality, as well as to unquestioningly accept and faithfully perpetrate bad situations on others.

Misogynist Pastor Gets Bible Right

The truth of the bible made shockingly clear.

And of course sending believers into spasms of defensiveness and vitriol.

Pastor Recorded Women and Girls in Church Toilet

Another pastor caught being a sexual pervert.

A pastor from Indiana installed secret cameras in the women’s public restroom which captured women and little girls in their private time while using the facilities. The pastor of Sunrise Christian Reformed Church captured footage that he later downloaded and watched. Robert Lyzenga got away with his secret for over two years.

The more religious leaders rail against sexual perverts, the more we realise that they are actually railing against themselves. For they are often the very perverts they so publicly condemn.

Holly the All ‘Murikan Christian Patriot

Holly is the one on the left.

We’re curious what, if any, difference there is between these two pictures? Both women worship the same god. Both of them are holding a book that heavily mentions Jesus, and both are unnecessarily heavily armed–and then there’s the intolerance demonstrated by extremists of either of these very similar religions.

The comments are great too.
