For the first time, traditionally Catholic Ireland is allowing an atheist group to perform weddings. And the response is overwhelming. Previously, couples who sought non-religious weddings could have only civil ceremonies.
Traditionally Catholic Ireland has allowed an atheist group to perform weddings this year for the first time, and the few people certified to celebrate them are overwhelmed by hundreds of couples seeking their services.
Demand for the Humanist Association of Ireland’s secular weddings has surged as the moral authority of the once almighty Catholic Church collapsed in recent decades amid sex abuse scandals and Irish society’s rapid secularization.
Until now, those who did not want a religious wedding could have only civil ceremonies. Outside of the registrar’s office, only clergy were permitted to perform weddings.
But statistics show rising demand for non-Church weddings. In 1996, 90 percent of Irish weddings were performed by the Catholic Church or the Church of Ireland. But by 2010 that percentage had fallen to 69 percent.
The pent-up demand from those who want more than a civil ceremony in a registry office but reject a religious wedding has created a major backlog for the humanist group’s ceremonies director.

Be happy that Christians cherry-pick their bibles. Be very happy.

They are afraid gawd will go postal and kill all, including his fanboys; Just like in the magic book, but not to worry, the bible is slave-owners manual, man made tool to dominate people; Yep, christians are victims of the “Eternal life in luxury/burn in hell” scam.
P.S. I totally refuse to marry, no way I will do that sheepness thing. :)

Jackson from Tennessee started a relationship with a Christian woman while he was still a Christian. Now that he has lost his faith (in part thanks to watching this show) he finds it very hard to live with someone whose beliefs are so different, but nevertheless he doesn’t want to end the relationship. Matt and Tracie give him some advice.

This is from the guy who protected paedophiles for years upon years, thousands of children had to suffer because of this man… Lock him up… Him and his church are one of the worst thing in this world, blood and suffering in every step.
Now he is fiddling in this Fatima BS… trying to kill of human rights, fucking insane… sortof like his insane imaginary magic man.
FATIMA, Portugal – Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday called abortion and same-sex marriage some of the most “insidious and dangerous” threats facing the world today, asserting key church teachings as he tried to move beyond the clerical abuse scandal.
Benedict made the comments to Catholic social workers, health providers and others after celebrating Mass before an estimated 400,000 people in Fatima. The central Portuguese farming town is one of the most important shrines in Christianity, where three shepherd children reported having visions of the Virgin Mary in 191

Personally I give god zero chance… and when you think about Dawkins giving god the same chance as fairies.. that’s zero chance already.
Religion is nothing but insane scam, tool to control people.. somehow it managed to earn respect.. well because of the eternal life bs..

There is no end to the madness in religion.
The culture of homosexuality is a culture of self-absorption because it does not value self-sacrifice. It is a glaring example of what John Paul II has called the culture of death. Islamic fundamentalists clearly understand the damage that homosexual behavior inflicts on a culture. That is why they repress such behavior by death. Their culture is anything but one of self-absorption. It may be brutal at times, but any culture that is able to produce wave after wave of suicide bombers (women as well as men) is a culture that at least knows how to value self-sacrifice. Terrorism as a way to oppose the degeneration of the culture is to be rejected completely since such violence is itself another form of degeneracy. One, however, does not have to agree with the gruesome ways that the fundamentalists use to curb the forces that undermine their culture to admit that the Islamic fundamentalist charge that Western Civilization in general and the U.S.A, in particular is the “Great Satan” is not without an element of truth. It makes no sense for the U. S. Government to send our boys to fight Al Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan, while at the same time it embraces the social policies embodied in Bill 185 (as President Obama has done). Such policies only furnish further arguments for the fundamentalists in their efforts to gain more recruits for the war against the “Great Satan.”
