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.

You are a hypocrite.
Disgusting.

The only cure is educating the women.

There is an ancient African proverb, goes something like this:

If you educate a man, you educate an individual.
But if you educate a woman, you educate a Nation.

Yes. Those times were criminal, and many crimes were committed against humanity by our government--or by agents of our government.

Remember the syphilis experiments against black men? Beyond conscionable.

Those times are behind us, I would hope--apart from rogue elements.

But we must be ever vigilant against such-- so long as religion is here, and gives people motive to justify atrocity?

We must be watchful.

And make no mistake-- excess patriotism is religion.

Go to the victims of Hitler....the families of 6 millions Jews he killed and take their approval.

Do the same from the relatives of victims of 9/11.

And then you will find where you stand in the world. May be they lynch you before you have finished your arguments!!

If you live in a dream world then it is OK.

PS:

Lock them up without Parole and Spend TAXPAYER 's money on their upkeep!!

Are you SANTA?

And what is the situation in GITMO? People locked up without trial and conviction?

I have read any number of diaries by Holocaust survivors, who are against the death penalty--even for Hitler. They realize, as I do, that stooping to the same level of a monster, turns you into the same sort of monster you are trying to stop.

But you are a Muslim-- you are ALREADY a monster--at least, your religion is.

Religion of peace? Not even a little-- you belong to a religion of SUBMISSION-- the LITERAL name of your cult.

And submissives are just sheep-- ready for the slaughter.

Just like your leaders want-- you play right into their hands.

Their monstrous hands...

Well said Bob!

Muq approves of barbaric savage treatment of human beings.

The day that the threat of Islam is no longer so dangerous the people will leave it in droves.

Yes. Islam in the present day, is at the same place where Christianity was, back during the Dark Ages.

Alas, in this modern day-- there is technology that enables even a small group, to have global consequences.

We cannot afford a modern-day "dark ages under islam"...

Well said! They are already feeling the heat of technology and have an army of so called reasonable Muslim apologetics try to make sense of their barbaric nature.

They get into trouble though when trying to debate people of reason and the rage comes out.

Indeed they have-- as civilizations evolve and discover better ways to be, and to govern people?

They realize that stone-age behaviors, and even bronze-age myths, are best put on the history shelf.

In favor of adult ideas, such as killing ought to be the extreme, last resort, after everything else is considered.

Ask Obama WHY he sanctioned the Killing Of Osama?

Ask those Judges at Nuremberg Trials why they awarded death penalty to those Nazi Leaders.

In fact you have to provide more and more reasoning for your illogical position and not me.

Obama hasn't been perfect and he has done some things that pissed me off to be sure. On the other hand he has done much to help us progressives so it's a mixed bag. Even Bill Clinton messed up but at least he like Obama tried.
Unlike any GOP president.

Clinton cannot be forgiven for not vetoing the repeal of Glass Steagal and for Don't Ask Don't Tell.
Obama cannot be forgiven for not fighting for real healthcare reform.

I get your point. However I think you can make arguments for or against the death penalty.

The most pressing question is why would you agree with the death penalty for minor crimes?

In news today..'Hang atheists'

Islamic protest turns violent in Dhaka 15 died.

Chanting "Allahu Akbar!" ("God is greatest!") and "One point! One demand! Atheists must be hanged".

Religion is truly messed up that part of the world. I hope they get an age of reason soon.

RALPH STAIR PROPHET OF JESUS CHRIST

I checked the South Carolina Sex Offender list today and Stair is not on there. His slick lawyer probably was able to keep him off of it via some technicality. I read some of Stair's earlier court documents though, and he admitted under oath that he was arrested once in Oklahoma back in the 1960's or 1970's because a little girl had said that Stair "made some sort of gesture at her." I sure wish I could locate that full police report. No telling what he actually did to that little girl way back then. Before he finally settled in South Carolina, he traveled quite a bit. No telling how many victims of his abuse are actually out there.
