Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

correct.
1) Go re-read Genesis Eden story: in that ugly tale of an abusive parent, your ugly god LIED: He tells Adam, THE VERY DAY that Adam eats of the magic JuJu tree-- Adam would DIE.
Adam ate.
Adam lives 1000's of days more-- DID NOT DIE. Your god LIED.
2) Your idiot Jewsus PROMISES James, John, Peter and the rest, that BEFORE THEY DIE--HE WOULD COME BACK.
Did he? Nope-- 2000 years later, they are ALL DEAD, and he's STILL not returned.
Jewsus LIED.
That's two examples. You want MORE?
It is a well-known fact in the life of a TROLL,

that mood changes and bloating can occur with

premenstrual atheist syndrome.

"re-read Genesis Eden story: in that ugly tale"

may be the first sign of a heavy flow day?

well, since they couldn't even write in a god character that can get his own creation story correct, or any other facts about the world he supposedly created, maybe you are correct.

have you read Michael Moore's book "Lamb" about the life of jesus and his best friend?(or anything my Moore..funny and witty as hell, highly recomended...)at least this cult gives us fodder for other humorous books and movies and such...
No, I've not read anything by Moore. Not really my cuppa tea, Moore, but there you go.

he has a pretty varied repertoire...

his book "Fool" a rewrite of King Lear is brilliant, and his most recent novel "Sacre Blue" about the french painters of the impressionist era is brilliant...possibly his best work.

but if not your stuff, so be it...

WHY DID SOMETHING HAVE TO DIE, FIRST?
Hmmmm?
Is your evil god SO BLOODTHIRSTY, then?
Bob, you keep talking about murder, but no specifics- what in the world are you talking about? What murder are you refering to?(That's as dumbed down as I'm able to get, hope it's enough to get through to you.)

Thank you. Perhaps it is flattering to be stalked.
My stalkers tend to be barely literate, though.

Your ugly god **requires** something to be **murdered** before he can manage to forgive.

That is a plain as it gets.

You worship a **blood** cult.

You even practice ritual cannibalism and ritual vampirism too.

What do you call it? Oh yeah... "holy communion".

Riiiiight.

This is an outrage

A Norwegian woman at the centre of a Dubai rape case dispute has been pardoned and is free to leave Dubai, she has said.

Interior designer Marte Deborah Dalelv, 24, was on a business trip in Dubai when she says she was raped in March.

She reported the attack to the police, but was charged with perjury, having extramarital sex and drinking alcohol, receiving a 16-month prison sentence.

The case has angered rights groups and the Norwegian authorities.

Ms Dalelv had had her passport returned and was free to leave the country, a Norwegian official told the BBC. She was not being deported, and was expected to return to Norway in the next few days.

The designer, who has been staying at the Norwegian Seamen's Centre in Dubai since she was sentenced last week, told the BBC she found out she was to be freed earlier on Monday during a meeting with public prosecutors.

"We came in and we sat down and they told us 'You've been pardoned'. It's from the ruler of Dubai. It's from him personally so that's - it just feels unbelievable - it's a very, very good day."

I've followed this case for a while. Why are you outraged that she has been pardoned? I was outraged that she was given 16 months in the first place.
