Worthy cause of the day: “Don't Repeal the Stream Buffer Zone Rule”.
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
- “Link between child porn and Muslim terrorists discovered in police raids” and “Dangerous and depraved: paedophiles unite with terrorists online”: I cannot make something like this up. I am not clear why such a connection exists or even if there really is a true association. The data in these arguments could be “cherry-picked” and most Islamic terrorists completely uninvolved with and abominating child pornography. So far as the terrorists discussed in the article are concerned, I would like to note that humans are frequently inconsistent in their behavior, so one may be both a jihadist and commit serious transgressions to Islam. In fact, it is possible that Muslims that enjoy child pornography might engage in jihad in an effort to compensate for their sins.
- “Woman to lead UK Muslim prayers” Wherein a woman leading prayers is thusly justified:
"We believe Islam is a gender-equal religion," he said.And I really dislike the fact that this article does not reference a specific tradition, which would be very interesting, considering how misogynistic the Qur’an is.
"There is a record that the Prophet Mohammed allowed a woman to lead a mixed-gender congregation, but this precedent has been ignored.
"Women have led prayers in South Africa, Canada and the US and this is a first time here - it is a celebration."
- “Kyrgyzstan to restrict religious freedom”: Isn’t this illegal under international law?
- “Financial News”
- “Powell Endorses Obama”
- “Fighting to take off”
- “Israel to give PA control of more cities” (Why? The so-called “Palestinians” are still doing nothing to stop terrorism!)
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
