I am an atheist, but? I am also? A Humanist. I want to share what I use as an analogy for beliefs in a god and following a religion and non belief in a god and not a follower of a religion. This is not attempting to insult believers, but I believe it is a great analogy to use.
I use the analogy that all religions and religious beliefs to a rock. YOU want to worship a rock (ie god and no I am not trying to be insulting on this to you) then fine. Worship your rock. Love your rock, live by the rules of your rock. But? Do not take your rock? And smash someones face in with you rock because that person does not believe in your rock, believes in a different rock than you do, or no rock at all. Do not use your rock to harm any other human being.
Those of whom you use your rock to harm? Have every right to defend themselves against you using your rock to cause them harm. Just like you have a right to defend yourselves against someone who is TRULY using their rock to cause you harm. What I mean by this is? You cannot hypocritically claim that someone is truly using their rock to harm you? If you are in fact? Using your rock to persecute them first. Then claim because they are standing up to you? They are then using their rocks to cause you harm.
History has shown? People have used their rocks to cause other people great harm. This? Has to stop. Especially when the rock believer? Tells us their rock is based on love, peace, non-judgment etc. Live your rock, yes, live the teachings of your rock on love, peace, non-judgment, etc, because who knows? If you truly live the teachings of love of your rock? You might change the world and make it a much more beautiful place to live, which we all desperately need right now with all the shit that is going on in the world right now.
People who have their rocks? Have to stop using their rocks to cause harm to their fellow human beings.
This? Is what the essence of being a Humanist is all about. Loving all people, no matter what rock they believe in, or not believe in. I do try, but some of you rock believers? Make it damn hard to do so.
Atheists face death in 13 countries, global discrimination: study
GENEVA (Reuters) – In 13 countries around the world, all of them Muslim, people who openly espouse atheism or reject the official state religion of Islam face execution under the law, according to a detailed study issued on Tuesday.
And beyond the Islamic nations, even
some of the West’s apparently most democratic governments at best
discriminate against citizens who have no belief in a god and at worst
can jail them for offences dubbed blasphemy, it said.
The Freethought Report 2013, was issued by the International Humanist
and Ethical Union (IHEU), a global body uniting atheists, agnostics and
other religious skeptics, to mark United Nations’ Human Rights Day on
“This report shows that the overwhelming majority of
countries fail to respect the rights of atheists and freethinkers
although they have signed U.N agreements to treat all citizens equally,”
said IHEU President Sonja Eggerickx.
The study covered all 192
member states in the world body and involved lawyers and human rights
experts looking at statute books, court records and media accounts to
establish the global situation.
A first survey of 60 countries last year showed just seven where death, often by public beheading, is the punishment for either blasphemy or apostasy – renouncing belief or switching to another religion which is also protected under U.N. accords.
But this year’s more comprehensive study showed six more, bringing the full list to Afghanistan, Iran, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
In others, like India in a recent
case involving a leading critic of religion, humanists say police are
often reluctant or unwilling to investigate murders of atheists carried
out by religious fundamentalists.
Across the world, the report said, “there are laws that deny atheists’ right to exist, revoke their citizenship, restrict their right to marry, obstruct their access to public education, prevent them working for the state….”
Criticism of religious faith or even academic study of the origins of religions is frequently treated as a crime and can be equated to the capital offence of blasphemy, it asserted.
EU STATES OFFEND
The IHEU, which has member bodies in some 50 countries and supporters in many more where such organizations are banned, said there was systematic or severe discrimination against atheists across the 27-nation European Union.
The situation was severe in Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Malta and Poland where blasphemy laws allow for jail sentences up to three years on charges of offending a religion or believers.
In these and all other EU countries, with the exception of the Netherlands and Belgium which the report classed as “free and equal,” there was systemic discrimination across society favoring religions and religious believers.
In the United States,
it said, although the situation was “mostly satisfactory” in terms of
legal respect for atheists’ rights, there were a range of laws and
practices “that equate being religious with being American.”
In Latin America and the Caribbean, atheists faced systemic discrimination in most countries except Brazil, where the situation was “mostly satisfactory,” and Jamaica and Uruguay which the report judged as “free and equal.”
Across Africa, atheists faced severe or systemic violations of their rights to freedom of conscience but also grave violations in several countries, including Egypt, Libya and Morocco, and nominally Christian Zimbabwe and Eritrea.
So Muslims in 13 countries put to death atheists under their blasphemy laws? I say atheists should hunt down these kinds of Muslims down, who want to put atheists to death, and put them to death under the Crimes Against Humanity laws, for all the butchery, slaughter, murder, genocides, rapes, and of course, pedophilia that is rampant in Islam.
As Muslims sow against atheists? So should they reap. As Muslims want to do to atheists? So should the same be done to Muslims.
Fuck you MuzzieKunts. You shitstains on the underwear of humanity. Go fuck some more of your goats and camels and little girls you perverted, pedophile scumbags on the asshole of humanity.
