Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

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)

Ah, but the military averages only .8% of the US population- quite a minority.

I have not- again, my definitions come from a dictionary, yours seem to come from somewhere else. Nuns are different from muslims, that their prayer events are similar is quite a coincidence. Nuns volunteer to be brides of Christ- muslims are REQUIRED to be muslim or face a death sentence- a slight diference. At least to me it's different.

"After Hitler’s defeat, the American eugenics movement fell into disfavor, appealing primarily to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and a small groups of old-line scientists steeped in the racist theories of the pre-war period. In the 1960s their key spokesman was Stanford physicist William Shockley, who was the first to suggest offering cash incentives to people with low IQ scores who would agree to sterilization."
William Shockley-
"He considered himself an atheist and never went to church."
State atheism is the Mother of All Murderers on Steroids and the United Nations should ban state atheism as being highly toxic to all living things. You atheist freaks are murderous people.
More jealousy. But Hitler? He's one of yours, GODBOT.

Too bad for you: Hitler was RAISED a good little godling-- yet? RELIGION FAILED HIM-- HE BECAME A MONSTER ANYHOW.

Same goes for Stalin: TRAINED as a good little godling.

Religion failed HIM, too.

In fact?

Religion pretty much false ALWAYS.

You are a PRIME example of religious failure...

Apparently the definition I invented for you earlier was right on the mark- you are fitting the definition perfectly and the sun wasn't even up before you proved me right. Neither of us have expressed or even implied hatred for you or wishing you harm, but since we disagree with you, in your mind we MUST be doing so anyway- hilarious.

Still spell casting-- I bet you cast spells every day.

Tell me? DO YOUR SPELLS (prayers) EVER WORK?

No?

Interesting....

We observe the requirements needed for spell casting.

We observe the requirements needed for praying.

They are identical.

As are the results-- both are activities of an insane person.

I'm sorry for the 100% failure of your religion, but what do you expect?

Riiiight.....

.... is abortion still legal? Yep. Republicans haven't done a damn thing about it, either.

.... can gays marry? Some places-- and more and more places too. Republicans haven't done a damn thing about it, either.

In short?

You morons continue to vote for these guys-- BUT THEY NEVER GET AROUND TO YOUR RELIGIOUS GOALS!

They have managed to make the rich--richer, including themselves....

Since Bob is not posting anything new ....
Should Jodi Arias be put to death?

As millions of cable viewers hang on the question of whether Jodi Arias will be sentenced to death, a different question comes to mind: is it really a death-penalty case? Sure, she committed a brutal and premeditated murder and tried to cover her tracks. Certainly, she was arrogant and remorseless in a protracted trial that cost taxpayers a bundle.

But the question remains: our lurid fascination with executions notwithstanding, is it a death-penalty case? And if the impassioned killing of a lover, even when pre-planned and carried out by a wholly unsympathetic figure, merits capital punishment, then what homicide doesn't?

Talking heads on the 24/7 news networks (I use the term "news" loosely here) and several of the legal analysts on their shows have been debating the question since Ms. Arias' conviction for first-degree murder on Thursday. And there seems to be some sentiment among the public to dispatch her as hastily as she did her boyfriend.

None of this means, however, that capital punishment should be seriously considered in a case like this.

Whatever your view of the death penalty and however outraged you found yourself with Ms. Arias as you watched her interminable testimony on TV, the cold fact is that convictions for barbarous acts of premeditated homicide by resentful lovers and other twisted souls are daily occurrences in courtrooms across the country. If death was imposed in all these cases, or even in a modest fraction of them, we'd be lining up death row inmates in the hallways for their lethal injections.

Soooo, you're a homophobe and don't believe women should vote- quite revealing, bob. Downright muslim of you, in fact. The rest of your rants were so far in the dark and tainted with paranoia I'd be guilty of repeating myself answering them. You poor poor deluded excuse for a person. How very miserable you must be.

Nope. Look at my Avitar photo-- unlike you religious BIGOTS, I think marriage equality should be the law.

But you Genuine Christians™ are against marriage equality, against women, against pretty much any modern progressive idea.

Your hate is showing.

Why not both? After all, Christian fundies in this country love to preach Jesus when it comes to abstract morals but they never seem to apply his teachings when it comes to helping out the poor.

If anything will spread more hatred against Islam, the current period of world wide terror will. When Muslims become the peaceful charitable people they are meant to be, then Islamaphobia will take a back seat. But continue a Jihad' and the world will turn against them. It is not just atheists but others as well. I'd hate for groups like the Nazis to come back to power because of these small group of radicals, because a peaceful Islam has much to off but a violent one has much to loose.
