The religion of peace – used by a Government of sexist thugs

Yet another example of the Iranian Government failing to employ modern human rights and simply suspends the stoning of this woman who has really done nothing wrong. Harmed no one and definitely does not deserve to be stoned to death.

I have a feel that I speak for the majority of “civilised” people when I label this punishment as a barbaric remnant of the dark ages, practiced only by those who still wish to live in the stone age, but by the same token, use very modern weapons in an attempt to enforce their religion on those “infidels” who do not wish to submit all of thier basic human rights to an outdated superstition.

The fact that this can and does happen in this day and age sickens me. If anyone has any kind of petition to sign, post it in the comments – however it comes down to the principle as I doubt that the Iranian government listens to anyone – especially the will of the people.

Star Wars quote for Religion

After reading this story, it has become apparent to me that they key way that Islam (and needless to say all religions but predominantly radical Islam) will be through it’s intolerance.

This is hardly a surprise but it does bring to mind the infamous quote by Princess Leia from Star Wars – A New Hope:

The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

And just like the evil empire, radical Islam seems to tighten its grip and hopefully push those moderate Islamists out there to the left. I say hopefully because in all of my internet searching, I’m yet to really find the voice of moderate Islam. Assuming of course there is such a thing as moderate Islam.

Does this mean that our last, best hope will be all those opposed joining forces, hardly,  given the “Ye shall take no god before me” commandment…so in that case, who will be our Luke Skywalker and Han Solo?

You, that’s who. Join the conversation, have a voice and do what you can to fight the oppression of the evil that is religion!
