I bust on religion on a fairly regular basis, I despise system that tries to segregate people, I see Money, Religion, and Nationalism as the greatest dividers of human society, in that order. Today I'm going to give an example of why I'm despise religion. I usually pick on the christians because thats who I'm surrounded by and it's what I was brought up as so I know their stories better. Plus in this country it's the christians I see as the greatest threat to our democracy. As Sinclair Lewis so poignantly stated, "When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." But today I'm giving the silly christians a pass and going after another easy target, Islam. The reality though isn't that I'm attacking Islam or any other religion, what I'm attacking is those who think the religion needs to be a part of the government. This is an attack of theocracies in general.
My example, a Saudi woman who first committed the crime of venturing outside with a man she was not related too, horrific. Then she had the audacity to allow herself and her male friend to be gang-raped by seven men. Now the rapists have gone to jail, and she gets 90 lashings. Before anyone tries to claim this only proves that Islam is evil needs to read their bible. According to the bible if you rape a woman you must pay her father 50 bucks and then marry her, as long as shes a virgin otherwise its death to them both, the woman is killed for not screaming and the man is killed not because of the rape but because he ruined another mans property. Fuck the bible it's just a sick a basis for a legal system as the Koran. Oh and because she allowed her story to be hear by the media her sentence was increased to 6 months in jail and 200 lashings plus the judge was so angry at her attorney that he has been dis-barred and she stands without a lawyer.
So as I've said many times before anyone who does not think separation of church and state is important, look at Saudi Arabia or Iran, anyone who is actively opposed to Separation of Church and State, you go ahead and move to Saudi Arabia or Iran ya fucks.
And thank you to UTI for making me aware of this fucked up case.
