Go to: Mormons baptize Holocaust victim Anne Frank posthumously, says report

boogerjames's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by boogerjames

Sorry, but Mitt Romney's father-in-law is no longer Mormon. I saw John Stewart do a de-baptism on the Daily Show the other day. If their posthumous fake rituals count, then so do ours.

Go to: Has Obama Waged A War On Religion?

They only have to "fund" things like contraceptives to the extent that there employees purchase them. If I require you to pay for all my doctor bills and I never go to the doctor, you've essentially paid for nothing. Same principle here. If their particular religion did a good job of convincing people not to use contraceptives, they wouldn't be having this problem. However, they know it doesn't. They get all upset because they can't force people to follow their rules.

Go to: Saudis sentence Australian man to 500 lashes for blasphemy

boogerjames's Avatar Jump to comment 10 by boogerjames

Agree with the above poster on the irony that this guy was there for a religious pilgrimage in the first place. Also, assuming they don't have some sort of lashing machine and this is all done by hand 1 lash at a time, at 5 seconds per lash, this amounts to roughly 40 minutes of torture.(also assuming he survives all 500). I'm not sure what was said, but it hardly would seem to warrant 40 minute of hell or more likely death.

Also, can someone explain to me who "Mohammed's companions" are? I was unaware they could be insulted, but might have to consider adding them to my list. How about we start an everyone draw Mo's companions day? Jesus and Mo (and companions)? Now that would be a good comic.

"He should be burned to death," said Abdul-Latif Dahoud, a 35-year-old Kalkiliya resident. The execution should take place in public "to be an example to others," he added.

Translation: "How dare this man actually speak what he thinks. He should have just shut up and pretended to believe and follow the rituals like everyone else. Now that one guy has done it whats to stop other people from doing it. Pretty soon everyone who's just been pretending this whole time will speak up. We can't have that now can we. Burn the bastard in public and make sure that everyone knows what we do to people who voice what the really think."
