The problem with society 


One tells us women shouldn’t drink because it will cloud their judgement and lead to broken marriages.

Another tells us atheists should not meet to discuss how to raise children without fairy tales

    That article regarding wives drinking doesn’t seem to be able to distinguish between moderate and excessive drinking. I’d agree that wives drinking to excess is unacceptable, but so too is husbands and anyone else drinking to excess. I don’t know what the situation is like in Kenya, But here in Aotearoa New Zealand most violence is the result of excessive drinking by both sexes. The problem being that as males are on average bigger and stronger than females, they inflict most of the damage.

    As far as silencing atheists, that guy has a hole in his head. How is it possible for someone like that hold that post he does? On a separate issue why, why does the constitution give special recognition to Christianity?

      Excessive drinking of alcohol or generally use of drugs is damaging to families regardless of who does it. To claim that women shouldn’t do it while giving men a carte blanche to indulge is, in my view, reckless and is a way to excuse irresponsible husbands.
      One must be using special reading glass to find the constitution as giving special recognition to Christianity

  3. Well, if the Kenyan constitution recognizes god and Christianity, it must be true.

      That must be a special Christian reading of the constitution. The preamble reads in part

      Acknowledging the supremacy of the Almighty God of all creation

      Maybe that’s the Christian god. Who knows

    I still don’t understand how “Atheism” is somehow some pernicious FOREIGN import whereas Christianity (and Islam), imposed by foreign colonists BY FORCE is an inherent part of Kenyan society?

    I feel for you Maka. Your officials all sound like Ted Cruze and their ilk.
