Rationalist assassinated in India. Wow. Just. Wow.

Anti-vaxxer Texas megachurch surprises nobody with measles outbreak.  Another example of child abuse in the name of religion!

Westboro Baptist Church gets another smack-down from another legal venue.  It seems protests at funerals offend just about everybody everywhere.

God tries to smite the creation museum with lightning, misses, only injures one person.

Fundamentalist muslim in Australia says "Kill all Buddhists and Hindus."  Religion of peace.  yeah.

Religion rakes in $82 billion per year.  Well, if tax subsidies count.  I chose the wrong profession!

"Rationalist assassinated in India." Dogmatist have to kill some body every now and then. Look at the OK abortion Doc who got whacked a while back, now its the rationalist turn.

"Anti-vaxxer Texas megachurch surprises nobody with measles outbreak. Another example of child abuse in the name of religion!"
Yes they both belong together and they love torturing Kids. Chop a hand off one of the adults and I bet 1000$ that he is running to a hospital and not relying on prayer.

"Westboro Baptist Church gets another smack-down from another legal venue. It seems protests at funerals offend just about everybody everywhere."
Don't understand this?? Xtians should be very happy with the WBC as they are teaching Cheeses word. Just remembered, most xtians are hypocritical lying whooses who prefer passing laws to make others live their way.

Its aim has always been either very bad or so broad that it destroys everything.

""Fundamentalist muslim in Australia says "Kill all Buddhists and Hindus." Religion of peace. yeah.""
Of coarse they are the religion of peace, and they prove it all the time!!! As soon as everyone else is dead they will be at peace!!!

I studied for a while to be a priest so I could take advantage of the tax free income and the tax gifts from the gov'mint, but I had to give up my con-man studies because of a sensitive stomach.

If Scientology can be tax-exempt, everybody should be!

Imagine how many people could be fed and clothed with the money humanity gives to religious institutions. It's mind blowing how much of our resources we dump into religion. Great post!

AND since they are a left alone charity they don't have to submit the paperwork to the IRS showing where their money REALLY goes; unlike normal charities that have to spend a ton of effort to keep their records straight.
I'm willing to bet that they spend a good part of their charity money on MANY other things that is illegal for secular charities (ie prostitutes.) But they will NEVER show their books, ya know just like the mob.

If all that money stayed in the hands of the dupes that for kit over, perhaps fewer people would need charities!
