How Many People Did God Slaughter in the Bible? Steve Wells Has Written a Book Documenting Every Kill
New book by the author of The Skeptic’s Bible tallies up the score.
Some sources suggest that these protests are the largest in History. They are seeking to throw out their strict muslim president who has been subservient to The Muslim Brotherhood.
The word “TERRORIST” has become meaningless. Both the left and the right frequently label those with whom they disagree as terrorists, whether or not those labeled actually use actions designed to “terrorize’ or strike fear in the hearts of their opponents. Governments routinely name those who protest or dissent from their policies as terrorists. Someone who marches outside the pentagon receives the same treatment as those who use bombs at the Boston Marathon or use planes to bring down buildings full of people..
Given this, I hereby declare myself an official Atheistic Terrorist, dedicated to striking fear into the hearts of the religious faithful and delusional by hurling bombs of logic and reason. We are legion, our cells often found in local brew pubs, where we covertly hatch our nefarious plots against the righteous over pitchers of brown ale. NO GODS, NO MASTERS, we cry. we arecoming for your children.
…But you must respect the beliefs of others, even if you disagree with them.
A common statement proffered by religionistas and their apologists, often after you have revealed to them how utterly ridiculous their beliefs are, or in order to avoid having to contend with logic and reason. It’s hogwash of course.
I will acknowledge the existence of their beliefs but I need not respect them, or treat their ideas respectfully. The fact is that many of them believe in imprisoning, torturing, even murdering people who have beliefs contrary to their own. Many of them believe that women have lesser rights and can and should be enslaved, raped, and even killed at the whims of their male masters. Many of them believe them many of my friends should lose their rights because of their race or their sexual orientation. They want me to respect those beliefs. They want me to respect them, supposedly adult humans who still talk to their imaginary friends in the sky and believe in magic clothing. They want me to respect their “faith”. Fuck that. I’ll acknowledge those beliefs, I may ignore those beliefs, but I’ll never “respect” their. That doesn’t mean that I won’t love some of them or enjoy their company, but don’t tell me I have to be respectful when it comes to these beliefs.
