Showing the harm of religious beliefs

The scariest thing I see as a former Muslim is when I see other Muslims who cry when they recite the Quran, it is so frightening to see how easily they have been brainwashed and put into an absolute non stop state of fear.

Yup, I also find it frightening when they tell their children that they will burn for eternity just for thinking that there is no god, when they self flagellate, take honour in having their sons become martyrs, and when they literally spend hours a day at Islamic shrines praying, thinking that somehow the laws of the universe are going to change because they keep repeating a bunch of nonsense written in a book 1400 years ago.

What makes the asker think it was easy, I wonder. It’s not that easy to manipulate people on this level. You have to get them when they’re either very young or in a very vulnerable emotional place. That’s why religious education is primarily for children and people looking to rehabilitate or people in times of crisis. That’s called a captive audience and Islam, Christianity, Scientology and others have perfected the art of marketing to them.

I don't know Jon Olson, but are you sure he deserves to be on your site, unobscured name and all? That post seems to be pretty clearly satirical to me.

Sincere question: How do you suggest it is feasible for me to run a blog like this in a manner in which I personally verify everything I am submitted? Literally—how is that possible? I don’t see how I could run a call out blog without extending at least a modicum of trust to my followers and then correcting inaccuracies if they are brought to my attention. 

So the OP’s use of the term ‘sex slave’ and bemoaning that he can’t find a girl who will just ‘do everything’ for him isn’t enough to tip you off to the satirical nature of the post? You think that requires additional research?

Are you HONESTLY suggesting there aren’t men who DO ask for those things of women in seriousness? Without knowing this person, I have no idea if this is fucking satire or not for sure.

Wake up and read the 6,100 posts here. 

Oh, come one, you’re putting words in my mouth. All I’m saying is I don’t think it requires a great deal of reading comprehension to tell that guys post wasn’t sincere. It may have been a bad joke, perhaps in poor taste, but it just seems kind of shitty to me to publish his name for what is clearly a satirical lambasting of the same misogynist numbskulls you’re committed to calling out.

It’s Ugly (by Bernie Sanders) — Paul Ryan QUIVERS As Bernie Sanders Outs the DIRTY SECRET Behind His Poverty Propaganda - Democratic Underground - Sen. Sanders said, “You have folks out there now who have virtually no income coming in. They have families. They have kids. How are they going to eat? We have veterans out there trying to get into the food stamp program. To me, what you’re looking at is an ugly kind of class warfare where the people on top want more and more and more, and they’re pushing down in an incredibly terrible way the most vulnerable people in our country.” Rev. Al showed this graphic that illustrates who food stamp recipients really are:

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

Is it REALLY useful for corporations to interfere and deny health care to women? Or is it useful to divide people into two sides for political purposes? #hobbylobby #birthcontrol

Several states deny issuing Amber Alert for Relisha Rudd →

Girl kidnapped, Amber Alerts not issued fully. I’ll let you guess the victim’s race.

Why do you identify as atheist, not agnostic?

sassy-spoon:

I’ve actually gone back and forth between the two a lot over the last few years. I’m probably more agnostic but leaning towards atheism than theism.

The misconception is the term ‘agnostic’ lives on. Folks, ‘agnostic’ is not some halfway point between belief and not belief. Heck, ‘belief’ and ‘not belief’ aren’t even polar opposites. I don’t have a belief in a god, therefore, I’m an atheist. That’s not to say I believe there is no god (although if I did, I’d still be an atheist).

Basically, if you’re anything other than convinced there is a god, you’re an atheist.

My paternal grandmother has always disliked me purely because my mother isn’t a Muslim Arab

nabokovsshadows:

And that I was raised catholic. Yet people expect me to care about her and put up with her judgemental bullshit just because she’s old. I don’t think so.

Just another great example of religion destroying what should have been a meaningful family bond.
