An interesting proposal to require all children in America to be educated objectively on all world religions and their histories. So as to not indoctrinate children without parents biases at an age when they cannot think for themselves.
Also discussions on Intelligent Design, Morality without Religion as a Evolutionary Biological Phenomenon.
A respectful disagreement with Creationism and how it teaches people to think (not think for themselves).
Christians for Child Education (CFE) in Houston, Texas today, formally lobbied against Science being taught in the classroom, on the basis that it is too hard. The CFE condemns Science as challenging, blasphemousness, and immorally lacks necessary faith based suppositions. The CFE insists that faith is much easier to “simply know” and proclaim with absolute certainty. The CFE attempted to draw upon Science nomenclature, claiming that pure uncomplicated faith is called for by “Ockmed’s Blazer,” and that Science needlessly over complicates learning and hypotheses.
“It [Science] is nothing more but the secular, liberal, abortion hungry, Atheist, blasphemy machine of Socialism, and so called Ph.D.’s offensively calling for rigidly, unholy empirical testing, which demands data to support a theory with evidence,” roared CFE spokesman Stanley ChristianPinkerton, as he furiously pounded his fist on the podium at a “Separation of Church and Reading” Rally this morning, to the overwhelming applause of over 1,000 slack jawed, dead eyed, Bible Belt, Born again Yokels.
Christian Surveys across the Evangelical Churches spectrum showed that 92% of Christians want to abolish Science, which makes learning an inconvenient, wicked, over complicated nuisance that corrupts the soul and simply leaves Christian children confused. The remaining 8% polled could not read the survey, but said they are on God’s side of this issue.
God, a major figure in Christianity was not answering prayers for comments.
In Rare Cases, Pope Justifies Use of Condoms
By RACHEL DONADIO and LAURIE GOODSTEIN
ROME — Pope Benedict XVI has said that condom use can be justified in some cases to help stop the spread of AIDS, the Vatican’s first exception to a long-held policy banning contraceptives. The pope made the statement in interviews on a host of contentious issues with a German journalist, part of an unusual effort to address some of the harshest criticisms of his turbulent papacy.
The pope’s statement on condoms was extremely limited: he did not approve their use or suggest that the Roman Catholic Church was beginning to back away from its prohibition of birth control. In fact, the one example he cited as a possibly appropriate use was by male prostitutes.
Still, the statement was something of a milestone for the church and a significant change for Benedict, who faced intense criticism last year when, en route to AIDS-plagued Africa, he said condom use did not help prevent the spread of AIDS, only abstinence and fidelity did. Continue reading
I am literally without words. Thisand the Church, in South Africa right now, teaching that Condoms are a sin and Make AIDS WORSE, are guilty of accessory to manslaughter at the very least. I see no way to take ‘the high road” nor any need to respect any Church members who do not openly oppose this act. This is literally teaching death to people, who are only promiscuous, as they are women without husbands- who left them with families-and their only job option to feed their children is to work in the sexual industry service trade.
This Catholic Bastard has theto say that they should “Govern their sexuality” in South Africa. Also as he points out condoms apparently (according to him) don’t work in tropical climates. This is sick and unforgivable as far as I am concerned.
There is not excuse for this. Let the Holy Pope and all followers who do not oppose this this abhorrent injury to South Africans have their “Hell” and let them burn in it.
I think the military should take control of this immoral, disinformation, which is a crime against humanity. I can see it in no other way.
Karen Armstrong is a wonderfully well read expert on historicity of the Bible Q’uaran, and the Jewish Bible. She is very liberal. Probably a believer, however very professional and not talk of theology. Only a scholar speaking upon what we know what, or hasn’t happened in Christianity or the Other religions. I like her as much as Bart D. Ehrman (PH.d.)
Karen Armstrong spent seven years in the Society of the Holy Child Jesus during the 1960s and later wrote a tell-all book, “Through the Narrow Gate” (St. Martin’s Press, 1982) that bemoaned the restrictive life. (The frightened nuns did not know the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 had ended for several weeks; they were not allowed to inquire about the outside world.) Armstrong is still hearing about the book: “Catholics in England hate me. They’ve sent me excrement in the mail.” Readers who have followed her lately are learning her more optimistic ideas about what Islam, Judaism and Christianity have in common with A History of God (Ballantine, 1993), Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths (Knopf, 1996) and The Battle for God (Knopf, 2000) which all focus on what unites the three great monotheist faiths.

If you are an Atheist… have you grown exasperated trying to reason with a born again Christian? Have you ever been able to reason with them to affect any change? Do you think it is possible?
I have been a Christian and now I can think for myself. Before I could not. Can I reason with Christians? Here’s My Reply – In short I think “No”. If you disagree please speak your mind.
