Brane Space: Women Have The Right To Stand Up To Oppressive Religions!

A good post at the Brane Space blog: Women Have The Right To Stand Up To Oppressive Religions! on religion's self-perceived moral imperative, and women's (and all humans) rights. On the Vatican's recent excommunication of a nun who chose to to save the life of a mother:

The Vatican's distorted morality (the same that forbids artificial contraception as "mutual masturbation") demanded that both mother and infant perish rather than allow the lesser of the beings (the fetus, not yet a fully formed person) die to save the more advanced being. But this is exactly what Harris meant when he referred to the "pious uncoupling of moral concern from human suffering". (Brane Space)

Muslim Imam Claims Women Who Don’t Wear Hijabs are “Asking to be Raped”, Arrested for Trying to Rape Woman | FrontPage Magazine

Another religious, misogynist psycho. Sigh.

Muslim Imam Claims Women Who Don’t Wear Hijabs are “Asking to be Raped”, Arrested for Trying to Rape Woman | FrontPage Magazine: An Islamic mufti in Copenhagen, Shahid Mehdi, has sparked political outcry from the left-wing Unity List and right-wing Danish People’s Party, after stating in a televised interview that women who do not wear headscarves are “asking for rape.”

“Women are not entitled to respect when they walk around without a Hijab. They are to blame for it when they are attacked,” Imam Shahid Mehdi said.

“All the crimes that occur against women is because they are not covered. When they are not covered, you have no respect for them. ”

The Vatican Arrested a Feminist Activist for Kidnapping Baby Jesus - Mic

Bare breasts, kidnapping baby Jesus, and caped Vatican police.

The Vatican Arrested a Feminist Activist for Kidnapping Baby Jesus - Mic: Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said the woman, Ukrainian citizen Iana Aleksandrovna Azhdanova, stands accused of vilification of religion, obscene acts in public and theft. A Vatican policeman stopped Azhdanova, who had "God Is Woman" written on her bare chest, after she seized the statue of the Christ child and attempted to make off with it shortly after Pope Francis had finished reading his Christmas greeting to the faithful assembled. The policeman attempted to cover Azhdanova with his cape with mixed success. (More importantly, please take a moment to appreciate the fact that Vatican police wear capes!)

Ohio homeowner told to take down his zombie nativity scene | Fox News

Fox news

The Religious Taste Police in Ohio are highly offended:
Ohio homeowner told to take down his zombie nativity scene | Fox News: An Ohio homeowner was ordered by town officials to remove a Nativity scene in front of his house that featured zombies instead of wise men and a baby Jesus.
Town officials will take "legal action" if owner doesn't take it down. Not sure what legal action that might be; freedom of speech and all that.

Florida School Board Blocks Bible Distribution After Satanists, Atheists Demand Equal Time



While an Atlanta, GA school is giving away Bibles,(link in post below) a Florida school does some backpedaling after Satanists take advantage of their rights:

Florida School Board Blocks Bible Distribution After Satanists, Atheists Demand Equal Time: A school board in Florida is moving to ban the distribution of Bibles and other Christian materials after a satanist group requested to distribute its literature.

Orange County Public Schools decided last week to adjust its "passive distribution policy" so that no religious materials, Christian or satanic, can be put in public schools.

School's Bible Giveaway Prompts Threat of Lawsuit



Atlanta, elementary school gives out Bibles:

School's Bible Giveaway Prompts Threat of Lawsuit: According to an 11 Alive Atlanta story, Jessica Greene was alarmed when her fifth-grade son Leo brought home a brand new Gideon Bible on Thursday. “I was just shocked that the school system would do that,” she told 11 Alive. “I tried to contact the superintendent. He has not returned my call.” According to Leo, “We were in class, our teacher said that these people had volunteered to hand out Bibles, and she said there’s going to be a line in the library.” Students were then given a choice to either take a bible or not, he said. Leo took one. But one child who chose not to, according to FFRF’s letter, “was teased and ostracized and forced to defend herself by saying that she ‘believed in God, but in a different way.’”

Russian Orthodox Priest Seeks to Outlaw “Neo-Pagans” | The Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt reports on the following efforts to outlaw paganism in Russia. Scary how paganism is considered as heinous as Nazism.



Russian Orthodox Priest Seeks to Outlaw “Neo-Pagans” | The Wild Hunt: MOSCOW –An influential figure in the Russian Orthodox Church has said he’d like to see “neo-paganism” made illegal in that country. In remarks at the international congress of Orthodox youth, as reported by Interfax, Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin declared, “Let’s say that three things – Wahhabism, Nazism and aggressive neo-paganism – should be removed from the country’s life at the level of the law. Let’s not try to be friends with any of that.” (via The Wild Hunt)

‘Jesus died for somebody’s sins’: Patti Smith invited to perform at Vatican Christmas concert! | Dangerous Minds

Patti Smith (of whom I am a fan)  will sing at the Vatican. It is indeed a surreal world.

‘Jesus died for somebody’s sins’: Patti Smith invited to perform at Vatican Christmas concert! | Dangerous Minds: You have to commend Pope Francis for his good taste in music—it’s been announced that Patti Smith is slated to perform at the Vatican Christmas Concert in Rome—but you have to wonder if he’s ever heard The Patti Smith Group’s cover of “Gloria”?

You read that right, the poet/singer who shocked an entire nation nearly forty years ago singing “Jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine” on Saturday Night Live back in 1976 was asked to take part in the festivities at the Auditorium Conciliazione on December 13th after Pope Francis personally invited her, according to The International Business Times.

Student Omits ‘Under God’ From the Pledge of Allegiance, School Vindictively Lowers His Grades | Americans Against the Tea Party

Student Omits ‘Under God’ From the Pledge of Allegiance, School Vindictively Lowers His Grades | Americans Against the Tea Party







Very disturbing story of a high school student who refused to include the words "under God" when he lead students in the pledge. School authorities have found themselves a loophole by saying the student wasn't punished because he refused to say the pledge "properly" but because he refused to do his assignment. Uh huh.



He got detention, his grade was lowered, and he is being threatened with more punishment if he doesn't say the pledge.

TIME Magazine Compares Witches To Terrorists

TIME magazine has apparently has a nasty and stupid article on witches:

TIME Magazine Compares Witches To Terrorists: In a piece entitled, “Why Witches on TV Spell Trouble in Real Life,” TIME writer Jennifer Latson suggests that this revived interest in witchcraft is “mere silliness” at best and a sign of troubled times at worse. In the article, much to the offense of pagans and witches everywhere, Latson quotes history professor, Emerson Baker, in this amazingly offensive passage.

“Witches, like terrorists, threaten to wipe out everything you believe in. If they could, they would overthrow your government, overturn your faith, and destroy your society.” (Inquisitir, October 28, 2014)
Very sad and stupid.
