How about this guy: Rabbi Avraham Rubin of Rehovot and his inspectors who require workers at the Burger Bar in Jerusalem to wear skull caps if they put the meat on the grill.

Bill Donohue and his little "Adopt An Atheist" campaign deserves a mention.

Mail On Sunday devotes times, reources and space to reporting on a woman who thinks she sees angels.

Sayyid Attiyah, the Egyptian exorcist.

That video was posted on Dec 2nd, which just sneaks him in the door for this month's RTTB. But for a little more detail (and added wacky-ness), there's this video from November in which he explains himself in a bit more detail. I especially love his explanation of the only three things needed to cure an illness. Nothing Medieval about it! :roll: :lol:
As yet I have not found a single case of a terrestrial animal which fertilises itself.

So are we nominating 'The Mail on Sunday' or the woman with an overactive imagination? :)

I think the Mail deserves the award. The reporter Liz Jones is obviously deluded and the Irish woman who sees angels is a con artist, cashing in on the gullibility of vulnerable people.

It doesn't compare with the Saudi execution but is another example of Islamic tolerance

O No! British PM Cameron plays the god card with an appeal for Britain to return to Christian values.

Reason: removed double post
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.
