Christians Pray Against Atheist Group Trying To Stop Government Endorsement Of Religion

Posted by doctore0 on October 15, 2015

..Hmm and what does the bible say about this, lets check
When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6″But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.” Oops :)

Humanist group says Rankin County teacher called atheist student a fool

Posted by doctore0 on October 14, 2015

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) –

jebusdecisionA humanist group has sent a letter to the Rankin County School District claiming that a teacher called an atheist student a “fool”.

The American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent the letter on behalf of a parent whose child attends Northwest Rankin High School.

According to the group, a history teacher has frequently made derogatory comments about atheists and promoted Christianity during class. The teacher, who the group claims is a pastor of Rehobeth Baptist Church, reportedly announced to his class, “Atheists are throwing a fit because they don’t have their own day. They do have their own day; it’s called April Fools’ Day, because you are a fool if you don’t believe in God.”

The letter states that, as atheists, the student and the parent feel unwelcome in the district because of the teacher’s comments.

The group also references instances in the past where the school district allegedly endorsed religion.

Raif Badawi, Imprisoned Saudi Blogger, Is Awarded Free-Speech Prize

Posted by doctore0 on October 7, 2015

Stupid Saudi barbarians…

A Saudi blogger who was sentenced to prison and publicly flogged on charges that he had insulted Islam was awarded a major free -speech prize on Tuesday in London.

The blogger, Raif Badawi, was named the international co-recipient of Britain’s PEN Pinter Prize. He was chosen from a shortlist by the poet James Fenton, who was the British recipient of the award in June. Mr. Badawi is serving a 10-year sentence after his conviction last year on charges including “violating Islamic values and propagating liberal thought,” according to English PEN, the writers group that bestows the prize. A Saudi court fined him one million riyals, about $267,000, and sentenced him to receive 1,000 lashes spread out over 20 floggings.

Video of Mr. Badawi receiving his first 50 lashes in January appeared on YouTube, prompting condemnation from Western governments and human rights groups, which have called for his release. Saudi officials have postponed further lashings.

Mr. Badawi’s case has renewed attention to the Saudi government’s harsh treatment of dissidents for acts that are considered essential rights in the West.

At a ceremony on Tuesday in London, Mr. Fenton said he was moved by the contrast between Mr. Badawi’s “liberal aims” and the “ferocity” of the punishment leveled against him.

Atheist Display Will Accompany Nativity At Courthouse

Posted by doctore0 on October 1, 2015

(Brookville, Ind.) – The Freedom From Religion Foundation is now adhering to the idiom “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Just last week, a federal judge dismissed the Wisconsin-based atheist organization’s December 2014 lawsuit demanding removal of the Christian Nativity display from the Franklin County Courthouse lawn in Brookville. The privately owned display has appeared on the county government owned property each Christmas season for the past 50 years.

U.S. District Court Judge Tonya Walton Pratt pointed to Franklin County’s new content-neutral application process for private displays at the courthouse as the main factor in dismissing the suit. County commissioners acted to unanimously pass the ordinance following the lawsuit from the FFRF and the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana last November.

Despite the recent loss in court, the foundation is not going away quietly. The atheists have been granted approval to display a Bill of Rights Nativity and a Winter Solstice banner on the courthouse lawn near the Christian Nativity this holiday season.

Politicians back motion that science cannot disprove God created the world in six days

Posted by doctore0 on October 1, 2015

Morons :)

creationist-frog CONCERN has been raised over a new religious pressure group which is being proposed by MSPs with the backing of an exclusively Christian organisation that aims to “heal wounds inflicted by atheism”.

Three of the five proposed MSPs who will join the group backed a parliamentary motion asserting that science could not disprove that God created the world in six days.

A proposal will go before a Holyrood committee today to win approval for a cross-party group on religious freedom, saying the new body would be open to members of all faiths and none.

However, it is being backed by the organisation Aid to the Church in Need UK, which describes its aim as healing “wounds inflicted by atheism” through “prayer, sacrifice, conversion, information and active charity”.

The charity, which says it supports “the Catholic faithful and other Christians”, has already pledged £800 in kind to the Holyrood group and it is proposed that its communications executive will act as the parliamentary group’s secretary.

Dave Thompson, an SNP backbencher, earmarked the current refugee crisis as an example of an issue the group would take an interest in.

Aid to the Church in Need UK is running a campaign to raise the profile of exclusively Christian suffering “at a time when the refugee crisis is dominating the headlines.”

The ex-Muslim Britons who are persecuted for being atheists

Posted by doctore0 on September 28, 2015

Many people take for granted the right to choose to leave the religion of their childhood. But not everybody has that choice, writes Samira Ahmed.

It sounds like a crime from a medieval history book. Apostasy is the decision to renounce a faith and/or convert to another religion.

It’s not recorded in the Census, but the 2011 figures show the number of people in England and Wales who say they have no religion nearly doubled in the 10 years since 2001 to a quarter of the population.

In the same time the number of Muslims in England and Wales grew by 80% to 2.7 million.

And among some of Britain’s urban Muslims – nearly half of whom were born in the UK and are under 24 – there’s a belief that leaving Islam is a sin and can even be punished by death.

An investigation for the BBC has found evidence of young people suffering threats, intimidation, being ostracised by their communities and, in some cases, encountering serious physical abuse when they told their families they were no longer Muslims.

There are also local councils that seem to have little awareness of the issue or any policy on how to protect these vulnerable young people.
