Transgender woman stands up to Arizona religion law →

Guys, if their religion is to discriminate against people of transgender experience, we have to just respect their beliefs and not hold them to any standard of evidence. That’s what’s offensive here, the idea that they don’t get to steamroll over the entirety of culture with their religious delusions.

Pa. couple face prison after sons' prayer deaths - Nation Wires - MiamiHerald.com →

Faith-healing couple in Philadelphia is facing 20 years for killing their second child because they refused to get medical help. Their defense? Why, it’s religion of course! They believed it was god’s will and two children are now dead. There’s your harm right there. You have access to a perfectly good medical system, but you ignore it becomes you’re convinced and magical sky ghost will wish your kids well and if he doesn’t, thems the breaks, right? Sorry, jerkbags, that’s not the society we live in and you’re not allowed to use your religion to bring children harm.

Should the parents get sentenced, of course. I think the church should be investigated too.

Look at these cool LGBT facts.

Apparently America is home to as many individuals who identify as LGBTQ as American Jews and Muslims combined. Am I reading that right?

Evangelical college says victim "is responsible" for being raped. →

*TW: Rape, Evangelical Christianity*

"Women have a part in helping men to lust. I think of Jesus’ words, not to stumble. Our part is to watch what we look like and act like, if we are too flirtatious."

Do we even need to pick this apart? Here we have an example of heartless misogynists who justify their backward, anti-intellectual, anti-community, anti-woman culture with their ancient, anti-intellectual, anti-woman religion. Religion isn’t the reason these people are monsters, it’s why protects them from being treated like the monsters they are. Here, in reality, cruel and vicious people exist. If they can hide their cruelty behind the shroud of religion, what difference does it make if we just had no justice system at all?

Because this account seems to love to highlight only the bad side of religion, let’s take a second to remember that not all religious peoples are stupid.

Religion, you’re doing it right.

Jut because these religious people aren’t mean doesn’t mean they’re more intelligent than the mean religious people. They’re still basing their conclusions on bad evidence. If anything, the fact that two groups can draw two totally different conclusions about how to behave from the same source and that each if those conclusions just happens to reflect the morality those groups held anyway, shows the source is little more than a screen for people to project their ideals upon.

Does anyone get pissed when you tell them why Amway is a scam?

Religion is just a more effective con because it calls anyone who questions it ‘offensive.’

Is this real? Do I need to even explain what’s so stupid about this?

multicolors:

We live in a world where it’s more acceptable to dislike yourself and openly say “I am ugly” rather than actually appreciate yourself and openly say “I am attractive” because how dare you feel good in your skin and say it out loud, what an awful human being you are, you can’t walk around thinking you’re good, you piece of shit.

If only we could narrow down what cultural institution imposes undue guilt and teaches that self-pride is ‘sinful.’

I’m not a believer, but I abhor this kind of fuckery. Spend your damn money improving people’s lives, not taking shots at religion. It’s stupid and pointless.

Exposing people to an alternative to religious domination is helping people. It’s freeing minds.
