Catholics Flee the Church: “Apostate” Pope Francis Peddles Masturbation “Heresy”

After recent controversial opinions on divorce and gay people, the authority of Pope Francis was already shaky.

But now his most contentious radical liberal intervention yet has shaken the Catholic Church to the very core.

Even the most hard-nosed dogmatists were prepared to tolerate his recent comments on ‘Who Am I to Judge?’ Read more Catholics Flee the Church: “Apostate” Pope Francis Peddles Masturbation “Heresy”

Jihadist Anti-Jokes

Sinners of the World Unite!

A Jew, and Christian and an atheist walk into a bar.

How devious are the wiles of Satan, that all kafrs can agree that alcohol is permissible!

Wasting Your Time

A priest, a rabbi and a Buddhist monk are playing golf.

How saddening it is, that the debauched and depraved people of the book cannot understand that the pleasures of this world are fleeting, and the world to come is forever!

Whores Must Perish

Knock knock.

Who’s there?

Fatima.

Fatima? What is your mahram doing, are they not with you?

Nah.

Remember to bring your mahram with you. I do not consort with unaccompanied, impious specimens of the female community.

Playing Chicken is Mere Idleness

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Truly, the will of Allah is inscrutable. Better not to ask such idle questions concerning the wonders of his creation. Prayer is superior to the idleness of unenlightened curiosity.

Secular & Spiritual… Why the Furore, and False Dilemma?

There is a notion going about that people who are robustly secularist, politically speaking, are automatically anti-religion.

But ‘religion’ means different things to different people.
People can draw spiritual inspiration and strength from religious traditions without believing they are literal fact.
I would like to see more organized collaboration between people who are secular for the outer world and spiritual for the inner life.

We Can Justify Making Saudi Arabia Our Ally for the Same Reasons as Nazi Germany

1. An alliance with Nazi Germany could have provided us with excellent anti-Soviet intel.

2. Economics-wise, Germany was hard to overlook. Plenty of rich carbon resources; in the short to medium term, a significant player in the world economy up to now. Read more We Can Justify Making Saudi Arabia Our Ally for the Same Reasons as Nazi Germany

Vikingophobia Should Not be Tolerated?

Thought experiment:

A gang of radical Neo-Pagans have formed a new religion called ‘Sons of Thor,’ and this religion allows you to carry off virgins via ‘bridal theft,’ and make them your wives; and to loot and pillage churches, synagogues, mosques and gurudwaras.

None of this is done out of hatred or malice; it’s just because Thor devotees have a different way of looking at things.

‘Live and let live,’ one of them gently assures us.

Gay people are to be sacrificed to Loki, not out of any irrational hatred, but purely on some specious ideological pretext.

The red-tops start losing their shit over this, and even some microscopically left-leaning privileged straight white metropolitan bouzhees start getting on edge, and asking how far tolerance can be extended towards the intolerant.

How will postmodernists and SJWs react?

Will they be appalled at the rank misogyny, homophobia and violence of the Sons of Thor?

Or will they immediately start calling out the evil privileged IGNORANT RIGHT WING BIGOTS (of left and right alike!) who are failing to celebrate the diversity of those with whom we all share a common humanity, and whose deaths would no doubt diminish ours, if they were persecuted and oppressed by liberal and conservative authoritarians who want to arrogantly reserve to themselves alone the right to be intolerant of the ‘intolerant?’

Buddhism May be the Religion of Peace… But Hitch Was Having None of it

http://www.salon.com/1998/07/13/news_79/

Far from his holier-than-all image, the Dalai Lama supports such questionable causes as India’s nuclear testing, sex with prostitutes and accepting donations from a Japanese terrorist cult.

Oh dear. Somebody tell Hollywood. What a horrific hate crime.

Old Chris is insulting the religion of peace. Next thing people will be calling the 5th Dalai Lama a ‘bigot’ for commanding the skulls of his enemies to become ‘like eggs smashing against a rock.’ Read more Buddhism May be the Religion of Peace… But Hitch Was Having None of it

Stop Darwinophobia Now: Dawkinsism is the Science of Peace

I’m sick of all these privileged bigots claiming that New Atheists are somehow ‘superior’ to the Moderate Political Islamist Community.

I mean, remember when A C Grayling was advocating beheading everyone who insulted his wife, or when Richard Dawkins wanted to stone people who denied the literal inspired word of Darwin?

This stuff is happening all the time! Read more Stop Darwinophobia Now: Dawkinsism is the Science of Peace

A Vatican Rockstar Who Pulls No Punches

I know the Pope’s comments are from a while back; but don’t forget that much of the media are still giving a simplified, sanitized picture of Pope Francis for general consumption!

This being so, it’s definitely worth taking a long, hard, critical look at the most fashionable, genial, and photogenic clerical superstar since His Most Hot-Ass Holy-Buffness the Dalai Lama.

If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch,” Francis said half-jokingly (sic!), throwing a mock punch his way. “It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

Muslims Couldn’t Care Less About Trump’s Edgy Religious Conversions

Donald Trump has recently decided to further alienate Muslims by staging a controversial religious conversion.

Or rather, a whole sevenfold string of counterfeit conversions. However, his plan appears to have backfired.

Trump decided to convert to the Baha’i, Yazidi, Mandaean, Druze, Ahmadiyya Muslim, Zoroastrian and Babi faiths.

Ben Carson: Episcopalians are Worse than ISIS

Ben Carson has recently made another epic Godwin fail. But who has had the dire misfortune of incurring his wrath this time?

Fifa & ISIS.

Uh, sorry!

Episcopalians & ISIS. One is a thuggish gang of jackbooted religious sectarians who want to undermine and destabilize our culture so the whole world can be exactly like them.

The other is a flamboyant gang of well-groomed cloak-swishing effeminates who are having a scandalous impact on the spiritual wellbeing of this world!

Well, I’ll let you all try and guess which is which.

Opinion: Ted Cruz is right. Why We Should Turn Away Refugees

In the wake of the deadly Isis terrorist attacks on Paris which killed 129 people and wounded hundreds more, the issue of whether or not to continue taking in refugees has divided us here in the United States of America, home of the free, land of the brave.

On Fox News, Senator and Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said, “President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s idea that we should bring tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees to America—it is nothing less than lunacy. On the other hand Christians who are being targeted for genocide, for persecution, Christians who are being beheaded or crucified, we should be providing safe haven to them. But President Obama refuses to do that.”

Bravo to Senator Cruz for taking such a brave and unpopular stance on such a volatile issue! Read more Opinion: Ted Cruz is right. Why We Should Turn Away Refugees
