Go to: How I Learned Not to Fear the Anti-God Squad

We should be glad that there are people, even the devil's disciples, who take religion seriously enough to attack it

I believe you are mistaking us for satanists, unless we are working for someone who we don't believe exist without us knowing.

Saying that just makes you sound like a moron.

Go to: Religious Ed. rebellion

Unless of course what I am getting out of this is wrong and they are just teaching religion A believes this, religion B believes that and so on. In that case I'll take back what I said in paragraph one. But if what I am getting out of it is right, than it's just apologist propaganda.

Being from Québec, so I went to school here as well, I remember in 97 being thought several "beliefs" of how the universe was created, one was the judeo-christian belief, we had the scientific explanation (Big Bang), and I think we had 4 more that I don't remember. What we had was pretty much religion A believe this, religion B believe this, etc. Since this new course is basically a continuation of this, it should be pretty much that.

What many have a problem with is that this course doesn't mention the word "athée" (atheist) once (unless they changed it very fast). Another problem is the fact that the teachers might not the adequatly prepared to teach it and there might be some bias with the teachers as well which would be problematic.

Thanks, Cerberus. Point taken, though I think your confidence in the uniformity of Catholic (and most other Christian sects') beliefs may be misplaced...

You might be right, however, it is Québec we are talking about, and around here, Catholics are barely religious (25% consider themselves practicing catholics, even though only 5% of Québec's population goes to church), except a minority, like the ones in the article, even them, I'd be surprised if any were creationists. For the evangelicals, that's another thing, and I finding creationists is much easier, which is why there are still illegal evangelical schools around, so they don't have to teach evolution after all.

I wonder how many of the parents who object to their children being taught comparative religion (i.e. a selection of the various competing ideas about the nature of the divine) simultaneously advocate teaching the alleged "controversy" about evolution?

Since most of the people who object to it are catholics, they should all believe in evolution anyway. Maybe some of the evangelicals do but I barely heard anything from people objecting to the teaching of evolution ever since it was made part of the curriculum in Québec.

Go to: A New Jack Chick Tract: Moving On Up!

Ha! That shit is hilarious. I've been reading those Jack Chick comics for years. They never fail to entertain. Personally, I can't wait until they come out with a Jack Chick graphic novel or maybe a live-action movie. Hollywood's a-callin'.

Something like this?
Jack Chick didn't do those things but it's quite similar to the tracks and at least as disturbing.
