It can also act like a magnet for idiots. Something is put up on youtube or somewhere. There may be 10,000 views, but some idiots post dumb and offensive comments. Those idiots are then taken as representative of all those who hold opposing views. Then some counterbalancing video is put up, and equally hateful posts appear. Given the size of the internet, this is precisely what we should expect to happen.

Oh really?

Where are the videos with atheists wishing torturous death on christians in the comments?

Since you made the claim I'd like to see your evidence.

Go to: Islam and "Islamophobia" - a little manifesto

I passed a woman in a full black bin-liner in Oxford this week. Her husband was casually dressed for the heatwave, with an open-necked shirt. Her eyes, which I could just see peeping through the slit, looked really nice, and it was all I could do to stop myself telling this unfortunate, downtrodden woman to kick her foul husband in the balls.

Richard,

the same scene plays out here in Toronto, although perhaps not as often. And when I encounter these muslim couples on the street my initial feelings towards the men are similar to yours. That is, until I remind myself that any cruelty, no matter how evil, can be justified to anyone by religion. It is then that I realize these men are victims of islamic dogma also. Although obviously nowhere near as victimized as their wives.

They separate the boys from the girls? And the government endorses this misogynistic policy by funding these muslim schools?

And then there is the creationism that is openly taught.

How can this be allowed to go on?

Go to: Take Action: Demand Taxpayer Representation on Church Tax Commission

Hey, when it comes to political funding corporations are, y'know, people, too. 0bama's fine with that.

I don't believe that's correct actually. I do recall that President Obama chided the Supreme Court in his State of the Union address for the decision you mentioned, with the justices sitting in the audience. In fact, one of the justices in the rightwing majority showed visible disgust toward the President as he was speaking, and the camera caught it. It would be quite funny, if the decision weren't so damaging to, you know, your democracy.

Go to: Take Action: Demand Taxpayer Representation on Church Tax Commission

Toronto Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 8 by Toronto Atheist

whether the current prohibition against political campaigning by churches and other nonprofits should be repealed or modified

This is actually on the table without the requisite repeal of tax exempt status? Unbelievable.
