Pay even passing attention to political society in the United States, and you will learn that secular progressives are threatening the country. Beginning in the 1970s, Christian conservatives complained that godless ideologues were exalting human...
Ben C. O. Grimm's insight:
There's some finely ground bullshit opined here ..
A tony New England prep school that has educated the likes of Howard Dean, George H.W. Bush’s father Prescott Bush, and Tucker Carlson is now embroiled in a sex abuse scandal that has been covered up, victims say, since the 1970s. At least 40 former students of St. George’s School in Rhode Island have come forward to say they were abused at the school. The latest known case of abuse allegedly occurred in 2004.
Britain is no longer a Christian country and should stop acting as if it is, a major inquiry into the place of religion in modern society has concluded, provoking a furious backlash from ministers and the Church of England.
A two-year commission, chaired by the former senior judge Baroness Butler-Sloss and involving leading religious leaders from all faiths, calls for public life in Britain to be systematically de-Christianised.
It says that the decline of churchgoing and the rise of Islam and other faiths mean a "new settlement" is needed for religion in the UK, giving more official influence to non-religious voices and those of non-Christian faiths.
Catholic priest Finian McDonald, above, is one of five priests at a Minnesota school who were exposed as this week as predatory child abusers.
McDonald confessed in a 2012 psychiatric session that he molested more than 200 boys, 18 of whom were children under his care in the dormitories of St John’s Preparatory School, a private boys’ school run by the monks in Collegeville.
Her admitted that he drank heavily and freely preyed on students during his years as a dormitory prefect.
She was a prized daughter of the Westboro Baptist Church. Then she started to question her faith, one tweet at a time.
One day in July, 2011, Phelps-Roper was on Twitter when she came across a link to a series of photographs about a famine in Somalia. The first image was of a tiny malnourished child. She burst into tears at her desk. Her mother asked what was wrong, and Phelps-Roper showed her the gallery. Her mother quickly composed a triumphant blog post about the famine. “Thank God for famine in East Africa!” she wrote. “God is longsuffering and patient, but he repays the wicked TO THEIR FACE!” When Brittany Murphy died, Phelps-Roper had seen the disparity between her reaction and that of the rest of the church as a sign that something was wrong with her. Now the contradiction of her mother’s glee and her own sadness made her wonder if something was wrong with the church.
The safety of children and young people is being put at risk by patchy and low-quality sex and relationships education (SRE) in English schools, a major new report published by the Sex Education Forum (SEF) has found.
Six days ago, I wrote about some data (presented by the Telegraph and Christian Today) showing the degree of religiosity among various countries in the world—the proportion of inhabitants who agreed that "religion was very important in their lives." A subjective look at the rankings suggested that the most religious countries were also the least well…
This shirt is designed for Atheists who would like to wear something to show they are proud of being an atheist, but also don't want to be so "in for your face" about it. What you see on the shirt is the negative space in between letters, if you imagine a box around the design you can see it says "ATHEIST".
Zuism is one of Iceland's newest official religions, having been recognised in 2013 - but it's been picking up hundreds of new followers in recent weeks, including many atheists.
The reason lies in Iceland's tax system. At present, citizens are required to contribute a congregation tax, known as sóknargjöld, to a religious organisation of their choice - or, if they're not religious, the payment instead goes to the state.
The modern incarnation of Zuism, based on Ancient Sumerian texts, plans to give the cash it receives through congregation tax back to its members. It's also calling on the Icelandic government to cease collating information on citizens' religious beliefs.
The Zuist church has some links with the pro-free speech, anti-authoritarian Pirate Party. Halldór Auðar Svansson, a Reykjavík city councilman for the party, has spoken out in support of the religion, praisining its efforts in “hacking the system,” while Pirate Party founder Birgitta Jónsdóttir is thought to be a Zuist.
