I think you have to understand that these guys no matter how well educated have been indoctrinated into their religion since before they can talk. So for them the default mode becomes the Koran and Hadith and everything else comes after that. Their education is based from the Koran out, it is the co...

This is an extremely complex issue. Here in Turkey there are degrees of headscarf, relating not only to belief in Allah but political views as well. No one has a problem with the traditional headscarf but they don't want it to be seen as a symbol for the Republic of Turkey. But when it comes to tigh...

Missed that piece of news here. It's all about the Queen's visit and the fact that another news channel has been bought out by a religious-backed company.

Oh and Youtubes gone again!

Hi, He went to court with a case against some blogger who he says defamed him and somehow managed to get the whole platform blocked. This happened last August and is still in effect. Previously courts have blocked Youtube but that was overturned quickly. No one seems to care about wordpress though. ...

It was the cowards way because I'd lie in bed, normally awake until I heard my parents leave the house. I never discussed my atheism with them.
