More news in the Religious-behaving-badly category. But really, does that surprise anyone? After the recent revelations re: the Catholic Church here (smh), any post that is GOOD and related to religion is certainly an outlier. Hitchens continues to be right, IMO.
What utter buffoons. Never has a quote I've seen referring to religion as "...a fossilized lump of useless thought, a psychological ball & chain...", seemed more appropriate. Ah... the human race??? More evidence that our race truly is about a half chromosome away from being chimpanzees.
That is my country of birth where I spent the first 12 years of my life. I was also of the ethnic-Chinese minority (hated because we tended to be better educated and wealthier and non-Muslims). There is no religious freedom in a country that requires you (by law) to have a religion and only one of 5 (I don’t know where they get 6 in the article) approved. God forbid you claim to be atheist or agnostic there. The targeting of non-Muslims was the reason my family moved to Canada.
