The insanity of "hate speech" laws. Combined with how muslims are now a "race" we are increasingly in the shitter. https://www.jihadwatch.org/2018/01/uk-may-government-rejects-petition-for-free-speech-act-and-end-to-hate-speech-laws It does not matter the source of information if it is true.

The article you linked doesn't actually give examples of where or how these laws have been applied. Without seeing what speech in question in being stopped we can't really come to conclusions about if we agree or not.
I wrote this when I was 16. And somewhat melancholic. Once upon a time, there was a nice little man who wanted to rid the world of all evil, all hate, and all badness of every sort. So, the nice little man went all around the world, and everywhere he went, he gathered up all the evil, and all the hate, and all the badness he could find. And when he was done, he rolled it all up into a big, big ball, and pushed it off into space, and called it Earth.

I'd be interested to see how you chose between line breaks and commas, I'm not sure about the flow as it stands.
Is it child abuse to raise a kid in church?
Avouleance comments:
I don't think it's possible to make such a claim, churches are an extremely diverse group, while I'm opposed to teaching children they're inherently unworthy of anything other than damnation I don't know that that's universal to all children raised in a church. I also don't know enough about the long term impact of this teaching.
As a non believer, do you also reject cultural and social aspects that have religious roots. E.g. festivals, weddings etc.
Avouleance comments:
I don't see why we'd need to, being routed in a religious idea doesn't means something is inherently harmful. It's a question that you'd need to ask on an individual level, a given practice may or may not still be worth doing.
