Post Date: 2010-09-10 14:11:59 by Brian S
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Atheists in Oklahoma City have erected a billboard seeking fellow non-believers and Satanists have scheduled a conference in a city-owned building, drawing criticism from ministers in a state where more than 8 out of 10 people say they are Christians. "It's not a question of `Can you?' It's a question of `Should you?'" said Dan Fisher, pastor of the Trinity Baptist Church in Yukon. "It's kind of like they're poking a finger in your eye." Nick Singer, the coordinator of a local atheists' group called "Coalition of Reason," recently received $5,250 from its national counterpart to erect the billboard along ...

Military Burns Unsolicited Bibles Sent to Afghanistan
Post Date: 2010-09-09 11:11:17 by Murron
Military Burns Unsolicited Bibles Sent to Afghanistan Sep 9, 2010 (CNN) -- Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday. Afghan workers enter a walkway on March 3, 2009, at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said. Such religious outreach can endanger American troops ...

Post Date: 2010-09-08 15:47:58 by Brian S
An excerpt from a deposition of Pastor Terry Jones, August 10, 2010. Pastor Terry Jones who caused international controversy with his Quran burning plan, believes that Islam is "of the devil" and apparently has similar problems with other religions. Last month, in a deposition from a court case in which Jones was a witness, attorney Michael Spellman asked Jones what else he believed was "of the devil." Q. And you believe that everything that is not from god is of the devil. Is that right? A. Yeah, I guess so. Uh-huh. Then again, it depends on what you're talking about. I don't believe necessarily baseball is from the devil because it's not from god. ...
Sharia for Dummies: Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf Claims US Constitution Is Sharia Compliant [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2010-09-08 10:54:02 by Murron
Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf Claims That the US Constitution Is Sharia Compliant Now let us examine below a few laws of Sharia to see if Imam Rauf is truthful or a fraud: 1- Jihad defined as to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph).

Church Rebuffs Military Concerns On Quran Burning
Post Date: 2010-09-07 12:12:36 by Brian S
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Christian minister said Tuesday that he will go ahead with plans to burn copies of the Quran this weekend to protest the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks despite a warning from the top U.S. general in Afghanistan that doing so would endanger American troops. Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center said he understands Gen. David Petraeus' concerns, but plans to go forward with the burning this Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the attacks. He left the door open to change his mind, however, saying that he is still praying about his decision. Petraeus warned Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press that "images of the burning of a Quran ...
Afghanistan's dirty little secret [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2010-09-06 19:47:19 by Mad Dog
Western forces fighting in southern Afghanistan had a problem. Too often, soldiers on patrol passed an older man walking hand-in-hand with a pretty young boy. Their behavior suggested he was not the boy's father. Then, British soldiers found that young Afghan men were actually trying to "touch and fondle them," military investigator AnnaMaria Cardinalli told me. "The soldiers didn't understand." All of this was so disconcerting that the Defense Department hired Cardinalli, a social scientist, to examine this mystery. Her report, "Pashtun Sexuality," startled not even one Afghan. But Western forces were shocked - and repulsed. For centuries, Afghan men ...

Jewish Fundamentalist Rabbis: It’s Okay To Exterminate Palestinians, and Non-Jews
Post Date: 2010-09-02 14:31:35 by Brian S
Award-winning journalist Max Blumenthal, author of "Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement that Shattered the Party" has written a very informative article about a book called "Torat HaMelech," by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira. The book states that the murder of non-Jews without cause is legitimate, and that it is even necessary to kill infants. There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults. The article by Blumenthal is called, "How To Kill Goyim And Influence People: Leading Israeli Rabbis Defend Manual for For ...
Mormon Church, Jewish Leaders Tackle Proxy Baptism
Post Date: 2010-09-01 13:42:10 by Brian S
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Mormon church says it has changed its genealogical database to better prevent the names of Jews killed in Nazi concentration camps from being submitted for posthumous baptism by proxy. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe the baptism gives deceased people in the afterlife the opportunity to receive the Gospel. Church members are baptized in the place of people whose names are drawn from a church-run database. Jews are offended by the idea that Mormons are trying to alter the religion of Holocaust victims, who were murdered because of their religion. In 1995, the church agreed to eliminate most Holocaust victims from baptism. But database ...

The Slow, Whining Death of British Christianity
Post Date: 2010-08-21 19:53:45 by Ferret Mike
And now congregation, put your hands together and give thanks, for I come bearing Good News. My country, Britain, is now the most irreligious country on earth. This island has shed superstition faster and more completely than anywhere else. Some 63 percent of us are non-believers, according to a 2006 Guardian/ICM poll, while 82 percent say religion is a cause of harmful division. Now, let us stand and sing our new national hymn: Jerusalem was dismantled here/ in England's green and pleasant land. How did it happen? For centuries, religion was insulated from criticism in Britain. First its opponents were burned, then jailed, then shunned. But once there was a free marketplace of ideas, ...
