I'm not particulary concerned about Dana. Her support at the EU level amounts to all kinds of nothing.

I hope the Phelps gang do picket Jobs' funeral; it will bring those maniacs to a much wider and different demographic who may not have been aware of their disgusting behaviour before. It might be a good thing if more people realised the depths of intolerance to which some religious believers will sink. :x

It gets better - upon realising her folly:
@MargieJPhelps "...Rebels mad cuz I used iPhone to tell you Steve Jobs is in hell.God created iPhone for that purpose! :)"
She'll be really embarrassed when she realises the iPhone was created by Steve Jobs, not God.

Hard to know where to start on this article:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2011/ ... orser.html

Rick Perry supporter Robert Jeffress thinks Mormons are a cult, which isn't so bad until you compare it with his outspoken, uncensored belief in Christianity as a people uniquely favoured by God, and his opinion that most important quality in an elected official is Christianity.
I believe we should always support a Christian over a non-Christian. The value of electing a Christian goes beyond public policies. . . . Christians are uniquely favored by God, [while] Mormons, Hindus and Muslims worship a false god. The eternal consequences outweigh political ones. It is worse to legitimize a faith that would lead people to a separation from God.

Since it is mentioned on nearly every forum I frequent I have to include this months Cancellation of the Dawkins Talk because someone who had no idea who he was then saw him on the OReilly Factor and decided he did not want an atheist speaker in his property.

Maybe the Wyngate club had heard about the wild behaviour at atheist gatherings - people drinking coffee, using the lifts and that sort of thing.

Camping despite being nominated in an earlier month is here again as he is sticking with his prediction that the world will end.... 4 days from now in fact.

Nice of him to pick a friday. At least when I party like it is the end of the world... I will not have work the next day.

I haven't posted a True Believer in a while,think this could be a winner:
I nominate the Indian branch of the CCL

Catholic church in india says have more children
http://www.atheistalliance.org/news-a-a ... e-children

The numbers of catholics are falling in this highly populated country, the solution have more catholic babies, they're offering hospitals (maybe they need a new source of baby factories-other topic), 'free' schooling and even cash bonuses for large families.
