Once again, folks: It's about RELIGION .

Posted on July 19, 2015 at 2:30pm 11 Comments

Once again, a Muslim targets the military and slaughters Americans.  Once again, motives are sought.  He was such a nice guy.  He came back from the Middle East, and he was somehow different. I am still waiting for someone (why not a secular organization?) to have the courage to say that yes, he was different: his mind was taken over by a vile, heinous, psychotic RELIGIOUS fantasy.  

On CNN, law officers in impressive uniforms vow to find out why he did it.  The closest that the media…

Who is a Jew?

Posted on June 7, 2015 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

A non-Jewish friend writes in an email:

"The Harry Potter film series star is Jewish. Radcliffe’s mother is Jewish, which makes Radcliffe a Jew in the eyes of the Halacha [Jewish law]. Plus, Radcliffe considers himself a ‘Jewish atheist.’  Willard is convinced I have Jewish ancestry. He's scheduled a DNA blood test to prove it.”

My response:

The question of "who is a Jew?" is right up there with "What do women want?".  Womb doctrine is the most enshrined and…

Jewish Sabbath nuttiness hits a new high

Posted on April 22, 2015 at 3:55pm 34 Comments

I have often said that Judaism is a religion for the obsessive-compulsive, with rule after rule, hundreds of them, interpreted and extrapolated to the finest nuance by generations of rabbis.  It could easily keep you busy most or all of your waking hours.

Nowhere is Jewish OCD on more florid display than in the 24 hours called Shabbat, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. (NOTE: The following is about truly observant Jews; practitioners of Judaism Lite, like my family,…

Readings from the Quran: infidels beware!

“The Bible.  That is what fools have written, what imbeciles command, what rogues teach, and young children are made to learn by heart.”

Voltaire

 

In my continuing efforts (I’ll be writing letters to the editor on this subject) to confront liberal Westerners, especially PC mealy-mouthed apologists like Obama, with the vile truth of what Muslims are required to believe, I provide a few quotes from Sam Harris’ The End of Faith.

I cringe when I…

Thanks for you comment. "Disrespect" is a pretty strong word, and, although I'd like to think I respect other opinions (religion, in this case), deep down I think "believers" are foolish and illogical.

Thanks Alan, I agree that the education system could do with a major overhaul. Speaking of education, if you haven't seen it already, check this out: "Texas is the large hadron collider of denying science - All God, no particle"

Welcome, Alan! Glad you could join us. :D Did you hide your groups? Perhaps I'll suggest groups to which you already belong. It's great to see the way you jumped right in with a blog.

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Jewish Atheists

and LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS. After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
