who knew


that atheists pose a threat to peace, welfare and good order of a nation? I think we have a long way to go in creating an all inclusive society.

      I’ve posted this elsewhere Me (why do I feel like I’m talking to myself?), but I think a repeat here may be in order:

      If we get our morality from God, why is it that our moral intuitions are so radically different from his? Why do we agree that women are entitled to equal rights and opportunities and yet God views them as property, as a commodity to be traded, bought and sold? Why do we agree that genocide is wrong while he not only permits it, but encourages it, even urges it? Why do we agree that slavery is wrong and yet he not only permits it but even provides rules governing the institution? Why do we agree on the value of religious freedom and yet he dictates slaughter for anyone that would dare worship another god than he?
