Go to: Residents want sign promoting atheism removed

Agathodemon's Avatar Jump to comment 58 by Agathodemon

I suppose this is another example of Christians being persecuted. I live in Denver, CO, and a few years ago Promise Keepers placed a huge sign advertising their upcoming event between an Orthodox Jewish Day School and the area's only Kosher butcher shop. I don't remember any outrage, and I suspect that requesting the sign to be taken down for its offensiveness toward the area's Jewish population would have also been viewed as persecution. A lose - lose situation if you're not a Christian.

Go to: PLEASE WRITE IN SUPPORT OF PZ MYERS

Sent email in support. Bill Donohue is an ass, and braying defines him perfectly. There is a wonderful YouTube video in which he wants to take Christopher Hitchens and fight him [probably behind a bar]. During the exchange he repeatedly says that when an Irishman speaks an Englishman must be quiet. If he represents the Catholic League, the organization must be very hard up for brains.

Go to: Prayer refusal pupils 'disciplined'

Agathodemon's Avatar Jump to comment 121 by Agathodemon

I suppose being a militant "Separation of Church and State" type it should come as no surprise that I find even the basic premise of "demonstrating" any religious practice disturbing. Are the students going to bind on tefillin? Orthodox Jews would find this exercise very disrespectful. Care to guess what the response of a Muslim might be to this? I don't actually care what the motivation of the teacher was or how right wing the reporting was, this kind of stuff should not be encouraged. At the very least it shows some pretty poor judgment on the part of the teacher.

What is the matter with the non muslim people in that community? They should be screaming bloody murder. We need to quit accomodating this ---ing nonsense.
