Some apologists actually think the accurate translation isn’t ‘cut off her hand,’ because that kind of “punishment by mutilation is inconsistent with the Bible.” The accurate translation, they say, is ‘to shave off her pubic hair.’ Cause that’s not mutilation, right guys?Look, here’s an article about it: http://debunkingchristianity.blogspot.com/2011/07/underhanded-biblical-interpretation.html?m=1Great job, Bible!

Good news: I finally found a scholarship for atheists

Bad news: I have to explain how I am an activist for atheism

??????

Sorry I was too busy being concerned with real issues like feminism and racism to care if we take “under God’ out of the Pledge of Allegiance????

Religion is a driver in oppressing women and minorities. Religion creates insular communities with arbitrary rules. Fighting for women and racial minorities is an effort to tear down the walls religion has built. You’re advocating for an open community that embraces diversity and equality and shuns segregation and traditional values.

I’d say that’s being active in atheism. There’s much more at stake than ‘under god’ in the pledge.

Limbaugh: 12 Years A Slave Won Best Picture Oscar Because "It Had The Magic Word In The Title: Slave" | Video | Media Matters for America →

Not that anybody gives a shit what Rush Limbaugh has to say about anything since he’s a pathetic washed up pill-popping bigot, but he demonstrates perfectly the inability of the conservative mind (a term used loosely here) to comprehend a joke. This joke about ‘either 12 years a slave wins or you’re all racist’ is lampooning the binary mindset put forth by slow-witted, knuckle draggers like Rush.

He took the bait and he raised us a paranoid right wing conspiracy theory that doesn’t exist known as ‘white liberal guilt.’
