god, the free pass ― Tweet of The Day

You know how religious extremists justify their wrongdoings claiming that they do these things in the name of god? That’s what this tweet was about.

Religious people believe that wrongs aren’t wrong if they’re done in the name of god. Guess what – wrongs are always wrong.#atheism #atheistThu Jun 30 03:01:40 via web

This is the original Twitter Link.

So many theists thought this statement was unfair, although their replies were rather testy, and quite numerous. But according to their religion’s teachings, even when they are as little as unkind to anyone, regardless of their creed or lack thereof, they are committing sin.

So, dear theist, do you think I’m being unfair to you? Call me out in the comments.

Bertrand Russell – Quote

People need to learn to discern “possibility” from “probability”. Almost anything is possible, but not probable – god falls into the latter category.

“If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.”

– Bertrand Russell

Fundamentalist Christians 'spanked' daughter to death

If god told you to torture and kill your child, would you?

If you’re a Fundamentalist Christian, you probably would.

CNN’s Gary Tuchman reported Monday on a fundamentalist Christian couple who killed their 7-year-old adopted daughter while practicing a violent form of discipline.

They reportedly beat their nine children regularly because they thought God wanted them to. Both parents were jailed after pleading guilty to the crime and the surviving children are now in foster homes.

This, you may think, is an isolated occurrence. Well, certainly it’s not the norm (thank gawd!) but this is not isolated at all.  It’s just another of many atrocities committed in the name of god. This is not a Christian way to educate your children – this is torture and murder!

I just hope these irrational idiots who pose as parents, get the maximun punishment for their crime.

Thanks, religion.
