A dose of evil atheism for the day
…or more correctly, just a few news items about religion.
Two Percent Company compellingly asks; “Really, Catholics?” upon hearing news of the nine-year-old Brazilian girl pregnant with twins, who received a life-saving abortion. Upon which everyone connected with the event except her and the rapist (her stepfather) was excommunicated. Keep that little girl in mind, since the Vatican backed the Archbishop from Brazil on those excommunications.
Then there’s The Critical Thinker’s Speakeasy, whose author had a bit of a run-in with a falling tree-branch, and then with a pair of Mormon missionaries. The connection between the two was hilarious – unless you’re a Mormon missionary, I suppose… (H/T John Wilkins)
On the lighter side, Ted Haggard wanted a divorce because he’s not gay anymore. Yeah… that makes sense. As one commenter noted, maybe he wants his own apartment where he can work on resisting temptation.
This just in: it may come as a shock that Christianity doesn’t always look like compassion to everyone. Which reinforces my conviction that when bad people become Christians, they become bad Christians. When good people become Christians, they’re still good people. The resulting organizations then differentially attract bad and good people.
