Islam! Religion of peace! Fuck yeah! And also of sweet justice! Yeah!
Let me help you with a pertinent bit:
In Saudi Arabia an Islamic cleric who admits to raping, torturing and killing his daughter received a fine but no jail time for his heinous crime. Saudi media reports that the father paid 200,000 riyals ($50,000 US) in “blood money” for his crime, but will not be required to serve any time in prison.
Hospital staff reports the child’s rectum had been torn open and the abuser had attempted to burn it closed.
Reports indicate the father had doubted his five-year old daughter’s virginity.
What harm does religion cause anyway? Yea.
And that, is pretty much that…
If you don’t know who Bertrand Russell is… then you are living a poorer life than you could be. He was a British philosopher, mathematician and historian (among others) and he was aaaaaawesome. The man was brilliant and eloquent on a level that the rest of us mere mortals can only wonder at.
Love. You’re doing it wrong… and if baby Jesus existed, he sure would cry.
