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.

Teenage girl kicked out of prom because she was “causing impure thoughts”

Ceremonial prayer is but a recognition that, since this nation was founded and until the present day, many Americans deem that their own existence must be understood by precepts far beyond the authority of government.

This is fucking ridiculous, why can’t people in government just carry out the business of governing? You don’t see successful Wall Street firms spending time debating who the highest power is. You don’t see employees of major chains forced to talk about ‘spiritual’ issues before unlocking the loading bay. Why must these motherfuckers use out time that we’re paying for to hoist this upon us?
