There’s an article on Voice Online (UK) “Are Christians facing a modern form of persecution?” regarding the foster parenting case of Eunice and Owen Johns and the “growing concern over ‘religions discrimination.'” Um, no, Christians, you’re not being persecuted — not in Western nations. Talk to a Christian in Pakistan and then get back with us on this “persecution” thing you think you’re going through. Idiots.
Lord Justice Munby and Mr Justice Beatson ruled that laws protecting people from discrimination because of their sexual orientation “should take precedence” over the right not to be discriminated against on religious grounds.
They’re damn right! It is very clear what the Abrahamic religions dictate as punishments for human sexuality and what their rules are for disciplining children, women and unbelievers. Therefore, it is crystal clear why these “religious grounds” cannot take precedence over rational thought and basic human rights in a court of law. Sorry ’bout that, Abrahamists, but sane members of society are on to you. Most unbelievers have already been where you are, subscribing to a delusion.
The Pentecostal Christian couple, who have fostered children in the past, said more people of faith need to stand firm against laws that infringe their right to follow their religious beliefs.
Nobody has stopped these people from following their religious beliefs. They are practicing their beliefs right now, believing that certain people are ‘sinful’. Absolutely nobody has stopped them from doing this. Nobody has stopped them from going to church or praying to Jesus or any other lawful thing they wish to do with their religion. As nice as these folks probably are — but fuck, who knows? they could be a couple of Stephen Greens — like all religionists, they’re full of shit.
Anyway, I left a comment after the Voice Online article:
It is absolutely alarming that they are filling kids’ heads with this garbage in the 21st century. These “faith-based schools”in the UK are using a very popular curriculum imported from the good ole U.S. of A. These taxpayer-funded schools also include Muslim schools teaching their own brand of Medieval bullshit.
This is child abuse. Read at Coburg Atheist:
… They think that you can teach children that the bible (or Qur’an) has all the answers – they even believe it themselves. This means they are deliberately pushing the next generation backwards. At this rate, if this was done in all schools, in a few decades we would be back in the Inquisition.
“Oh but that only happens in the backward U.S. South” you say. Or maybe only in backward Muslim countries like Iran and Pakistan – that’s why they are under-developed. While it is true that Science text books for children that teach creationism are produced in the U.S., they are moving to the U.K. into “Faith based schools”. See the following video:
Richard Dawkins’ excellent speech at the Pope protest in the UK:
They sure love ol' Iris at Belfast Pride (click photo)
… more than you know, you hypocritical twat. Yes, Jesus would probably (maybe) stop the queer citizens of Northern Ireland from STONING YOU TO DEATH, you lying, hypocritical, mentally ill, Pious Pedophile, “abomination” of a piece of human shit, with the goddamn gaul to dehumanize and condemn gay people. How about some good old UK Sharia Law on your lying, adulterous ass.
And, this wonderful lady, who puts the ‘mental’ in fundamental, ordered half of the kickbacks she demanded to be funneled to her goddamn CHURCH (where her sister is the Pastor). Fuck.
I LOVE the title of the post by Joe.My.God. … “CougarGate: Iris Robinson Took Thousands In Kickbacks From Her 19 Year Old Boytoy”
Iris Robinson knew Kirk McCambley since he was NINE YEARS OLD, grooming him the whole time? isn’t that what goddamn pedophiles do? The crazy bat even tried to commit suicide after the affair was disclosed to her husband, Peter.
Folks, it is ALWAYS the ones screaming the LOUDEST about the so-called “evils” of other people, so that they can divert attention away from the dirty doings they’re steeped in.
Sorry, fundaMENTALists piss me the hell off.
