Salt Lake City police officer won’t protect gay pride parade. →

Religious liberty at work, folks. It supersedes common human decency.

yeahitsjennah:

This doesn’t even need a caption. It’s pretty self-explanatory.

Yeah, it doesn’t need a caption, it perfectly exemplifies how Christianity uses the same tactics as creepy child abusers and are, in fact, creepy and abusive toward children. They foster an odd sort of dependence and arbitrarily reward obedience.By the way, dumb fuck, a bigger bear is not a better bear. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with children and psychology (or basic human emotion) can tell you if she loves that bear, she’s not gonna love some other bear just because it’s bigger. She’s invested her emotions in that small bear. She’s experimenting with caring for something, this is something all children do. What lesson does it teach to give away her baby for a bigger baby? When she’s a bit older will she trade a three-legged dog for a four legged one? When she’s a teen will she dump her date for a taller one? If she becomes a mother will she throw out her baby for a healthier one?

Just another example of people using Christianity to justify their bigotry and to elevate their actions above common laws and human decency.

Alabama’s chief justice: Buddha didn’t create us so First Amendment only protects Christians →

This has been another episode of “Conservatives Actually Know Fuck-All About the Constitution.”

Chief. Justice.

The first half of this is true whether you’re a Buddhist or not. The second part is like the petulant whines of a child making up the rules as he goes along.

Church pulls 'hell' sign after police probe →

A passerby in Norfolk, England, complained about the sign, which said non-Christians would “burn in hell,” and showed flames below the words, “If you think there is no God you better be right!”

By their logic, they better be right they chose the right god to believe in.

By the way, can you choose to believe in something?

‘Gentle’ Quebec man who slapped teen daughter to death after she failed to finish chores gets 60 days in jail →

A man beat a child to death, but did he kill her, or was it, THE WILL OF GOD?

“I lost my daughter, but it was the will of God,” Sidime told Quebec Court Judge Richard Marleau. “I am not violent.”

Oh, he must be a good-at-heart man, not a violent monster. He shouldn’t spend the rest of his life in jail for child abuse and murder because he believes in God! Let’s give him 2 months instead!

Oklahoma Parents Beat Little Boy Because He’s ‘Possessed by Demons’ (Video) | Americans Against the Tea Party →

Sheriff’s deputies in Canadian County, Oklahoma rescued a 6-year-old child from what they say is the worst case of child abuse they have ever seen on Thursday after receiving a tip that his parents were keeping him locked in a small room, abused and neglected. According to the caller, 28-year-old Edward and 32-year-old Krystal Everett barely fed the child and forced him to use a bucket as a toilet. The caller said that the parents kept the child locked up because the Everetts thought him to be possessed by a demon.

…but we should respect their religious view, obviously, right?

Sudanese woman sentenced to death for her faith →

An Islamic government is putting a pregnant woman to death for refusing to convert to Islam.

I want this kind of violence to not be the face of Islam, but when religion, especially Islam, runs a country, it runs it using fascist violence.

These ideological institutions breed top-down “obey or be killed” style thinking and embraces iron-fist leadership.
