My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Already majority of your population consists of Bastards children.
May be the "apes" would protest and say , they are ashamed to feel that once they shared ancestors with humans!!

I have a problem with anyone who commits crimes like these.
Yes, there seems to be a tendency for Pakistanis to do this but I'd put it down to religious culture rather than race. After all, you don't see gangs of Indian males doing this sort of thing.
I agree that religion isn't directly or simply the reason that the rapists (who happened to be Pakis & Muslim) targeted white girls, but it is certainly part of the problem.

Many British Muslims (including so-called moderates) choose to despise British culture and people and blame all drug-use, alcohol abuse and promescuity on 'British' or 'secular' society. They say 'Islam doesn't allow it' as if British or secular people in general do, although we don't use oppressive or violent methods to stop it. They talk as if Islam makes them better, not worse.

They don't judge people equally according to their behaviour. Islam (any religion in fact) is divisive in this way. Brit Muslims in general tend to say that they are 'Muslim first' and insist on promoting their culture within British society. They behave like a nation within a nation. They want their own courts; 'Sharia compliant banks'; and they organise some of their social support services seperately. They don't integrate so much as behave as if they are somehow above the rest of the population. They ignore all evidence that shows they are just as good and bad as the rest of society. Appaerntly, 1:12 prisoners (criminal) are Muslims but Muslims are only 4% of the general population.

Religion = superstition and is inherently divisive and does more harm than good. People need to work together and keep religion out of politics, the law, science, morality and (especially) education.

And many unmarried couples raise their children better than many a Muslim household. Better a bastard than a religious fundamentalist. Nothing wrong with the bastards I have met. Many of them turn-out just fine as long as they aren't discriminated against or stigmatised by religious fundies.

People like Malala will educate you Muq....

Perhaps that's what frightens you - that she is bright and respected and that you and your version of Islam is seen as down-right daft even by many a Muslim.

There's no denying that Christianity has influenced and shaped our attitudes. It's not the be all and end all, but it has been a significant factor in the development of our western societies.

In a similar way, Islam has influenced Pakistani attitudes and the way they treat women is indicative of this.

Isn't there? I'm not so sure. One might as well say that our society shaped Christianity.

I think it fair to say that our society's secularism has defended science and morality against religion. Arguably, the more secular a society is, the more moral it is. I'm inclined to think it more correct to say that religion (whichever myth is chosen) reflects the society more than influencing it. A myth is just a myth.

I tend to think that rightly or wrongly, Christianity played its part in shaping our identity.

However, since the Enlightenment, it's been on the decline and other secular factors have had far more influence than the superstition and mumbo jumbo that is Christianity.

I have yet to meet so foul mouthed woman on these threads.
and do you know, any one resorting to hysteria, tantrums and getting mad with rage in any debate or discussion is the one who has no reasonable or logical answer.
So will you tell us, what is your problem?
Why can you not understand, that "thighing" a child is worse than eating pigshit? It is worse than almost anything else you can do. You shit on your own bloodline, your shit on your manhood, you shit on your humanity, it is worthless if you can touch a child sexually. You are not a man, you are beneath human.

A god who would sanction it, or allow it to remain unchallenged, is not a god, and your Mohamed knew that. He knew that the perverts among your kind would welcome a chance to do these wrongs to children. He knew because he was a pervert. He took a god-myth from another group of peoples and changed it to suit his own perversions, and you bastards have embraced it, beaten down your life mates(your women, the ultimate protector of the child) they have to be broken first so that they can't stop your perversions, and then you happily chose the way of pedophile monsters instead that of humanity.

You go and see a doctor to remove your focus from "thighs".

All you see in world is people "thighing"...so get rid of the fixation and talk like a normal person.

You don't know much about woman do you?

Women, and not little girls who have been sodomized their entire lives.
Woman, and not little girls who have had their genitals brutally mutilated, to rob them of any outer sexuality.
Women, and not little girls who have had their vaginas sewn shut.

Women who will peel every inch of skin from your body, should you molest her children.
Woman who will cut off and shove your testes through your nostrils, should you endanger her children.

Women, the way she is meant by nature to be.

Women, real women who you pig shit eaters are terrified of.

They are coming into your world, these women who will treat you monsters like you have treated millions of girls before them. They will castrate you, they will mutilate you, and you will learn that you are nothing but a failed human, and not worthy to walk beside these mothers of children, who won't ever be "thighed" ever again.

I am woman, as nature meant her to be. I am woman who would make you pay with your life, for molesting children, I am woman, intent on protecting all children. It is what being a mother is meant to be.

I am completely normal, you are a monstrous perverted freak.

Ans.

There might be some exceptions, but unmarried couple cannot teach their children sexual morality. So they might be worse than their parents and after a few generations, we might see the end of family system and sexual morality in the country.

02. It is strange that you say "bastards are better than fundamentalists". I think you do not understand fundamentalists. It depends what your fundamentals are. If they are good you are on right track, if they are bad, then they are bad. While bastards are bad on every account.

03. Nothing about Malala will frighten me. Islam is not against girls getting education. But education does not mean to give it according to western norms. Every country and society has its own social structure and that must be respected.

This is also International Law as for as I know it.

Because you CLAIM that God does not exist. As for our claim, we have this whole Universe as a living proof.

Either you prove that this Universe can create itself, or it can come by chance or by random occurrences..

Otherwise your Claim in Null and void.

I never made that claim. I merely lack a belief in gods.

Either prove that your god created it, with credible evidence, or your claim that it did is null and void.
