  1. Can always rely on the sociopathic barbarism of abrahamic faith to turn the world into garbage. Dogmatically-endorsed murderous filth.

  2. Religion strikes again. How much more advanced and civilised the world may have been had it not been forever sullied by ‘faith’. Amazing that a ‘belief’ – for which, by its very nature, there is no ‘proof’ – can have such a devastating impact on human life.

      Belief gives people the option not to think and most people appear to feel very comfortable with that.

      1. How very true. I remeber trying to explain to a very old friend (in all senses of the word) how I thought telepathy might work (like a radio transmitter and receiver – via electrical signals passed from the sender’s brain to that of the receiver’s brain). I said, “maybe that’s how psychics appear to mind-read. They’re just picking up electrical brain signals”. He thought for a moment and then exclaimed, “Ohhh. Don’t say any more. Your spoiling my beliefs”. A distinct case of “I’m comfortable in my self-delusion – please don’t make me think about other possibilities”.

  3. Muslims FTW…..NAT.

    Disgusting as ever.

    1. so, all of a sudden generalising is the answer

    Pure evil cowardly scum bags

  5. I don’t care what tailored brand of crazy people want to believe, all religion should be a target of constant and unwavering derision from all intelligent people.

    Enough with the “tolerance”, they attack us at every opportunity, it’s time to take the gloves off and tell them all to stick their BS where the sun doesn’t shine.

    Individuals can believe what they want to believe, but no Human on this planet should be permitted to ever force their religious views on another, and no government should ever be associating itself to any religion.

    Secularism is the way forward, and that will only happen when intelligent people stop being polite about these cults and start calling them what they are – dictators who believe in fairy stories and use them to justify attacks on others.

    F**k your religion, whatever religion it is.

    1. Bravo. Robustly concur.

    Vile, disgusting, abominable. So much for the myth that Islam is a peaceful cult, a notion supported by the majority of western leaders. If it is such, then why aren’t the leaders of Islamic countries condemning it?

    1. i think its rather naive to expect leaders of totalitarian regimes to condemn any act of violence

  8. yemen is a poor and very conservative country with no much democracy, a perfect environment for fanatics to flourish. but as Alaa Jarban, young revolutionary and openly gay yemeni, said in response to a foreign supporter who asked him what “Western tweeps” could do to support LGBTQ rights in Yemen”
    - “Not much. The work has to come from us.”
