    Blasphemy is a dangerous crime

    1. Catholic Church in India has a miracle. Indian (?) guy debunks it. There are now warrants out on him for the crime of blasphemy.

    2. Kuwait Parliament, by large majority, passes law prescribing the death penalty for those who curse the Prophet or his wives. A few Shiite members oppose, displeased that the law doesn't also make it a capital crime to curse the 12 Imams.
    If all the atheists left the USA, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Sciences, but less than 1% of the prison population.

    Come on, APF - these are entirely political. Religion isn't to blame.
    “Religious apologists complain bitterly that atheists and secularists are aggressive and hostile in their criticism of them. I always say, ‘Look, when you guys were in charge, you didn’t argue with us, you just burnt us at the stake. Now what we’re doing is, we’re presenting you with some arguments and some challenging questions, and you complain.’”
    —A.C. Grayling

    Interesting India gives a **** about protecting supposed Catholic blasphemy.

    I wonder if the congregation of Indian Catholics are going to push back against these clergy for trying to cover up a proven false miracle.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    R.W. 09.21.10 I love you.
