Sure, a minute of being nice to someone who isn't there to advertise their group or buy their product wouldn't be out of the norm.  But solicitation isn't done with the best intentions, and too often is it done for the sake of personal gain.

As such, it behooves some individuals to respond in a very short way when it comes to those who often advertise or sell their product repetitively.  Given that fact, it is not uncommon for an individual to take some measure of cathartic joy from ending someone's sales pitch before they have a chance to aim it in your direction.

While I can understand the desire to be cordial and kind, an individual who is these things can expect to reach their limit by sheer volume.  And if i'm not mistaken, proselytizers of all shapes, sizes, and tones come to the uploader's house often to preach their passive aggressive blessings and veiled threats of hellfire and condemnation.

Such saccharine coated cyanide leaves a bad taste in one's mouth indeed.

Phrases like "fear of freedom" or "they hate our freedom" or "they hate us because of our freedom" bother me and feel more like rhetoric than anything. It's just simple fear and hatred for the "other" (whether it is based on tribe, race, creed, sports franchise, political party, etc.) and it goes both ways. There is historical precedent (recent and ancient) for Islamic countries and peoples to mistrust the West that have nothing to do with "our freedom" but our ability to take away theirs. It's easier to blame the West on their problems and distract the masses, but damn it, we keep giving them good reasons for using us as a scapegoat.

Also note that there is fear and hatred within Islam rooted in religious and political divides. These have nothing to do with "fear of freedom."

+Zephyr López Cervilla Being dead, Nimoy is no longer active, nor capable of violence, so he does in fact rest in peace.  Therefore it is a logical greeting for survivors and fans to read.

Oh, but that's the fun part, +rob minnaert , once secular rule is deposed, we can go back to sectarian violence in the streets to decide whose imaginary friend is more real.

Continuing her journey from a deeply religious Islamic upbringing to a post at Harvard, the brilliant, charismatic and controversial New York Times and Globe and Mail #1 bestselling author of Infidel and Nomad makes a powerful plea for a Muslim Reformation as the only way to end the horrors of terrorism, sectarian warfare and the repression of women and minorities.

Today, she argues, the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims can be divided into a minority of extremists, a majority of observant but peaceable Muslims and a few dissidents who risk their lives by questioning their own religion. But there is only one Islam and, as Hirsi Ali shows, there is no denying that some of its key teachings—not least the duty to wage holy war—are incompatible with the values of a free society. 

For centuries it has seemed as if Islam is immune to change. But Hirsi Ali has come to believe that a Muslim Reformation—a revision of Islamic doctrine aimed at reconciling the religion with modernity—is now at hand, and may even have begun. The Arab Spring may now seem like a political failure. But its challenge to traditional authority revealed a new readiness—not least by Muslim women—to think freely and to speak out.

Courageously challenging the jihadists, she identifies five key amendments to Islamic doctrine that Muslims have to make to bring their religion out of the seventh century and into the twenty-first. And she calls on the Western world to end its appeasement of the Islamists. “Islam is not a religion of peace,” she writes. It is the Muslim reformers who need our backing, not the opponents of free speech.

Interweaving her own experiences, historical analogies and powerful examples from contemporary Muslim societies and cultures, Heretic is not a call to arms, but a passionate plea for peaceful change and a new era of global toleration. In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo murders, with jihadists killing thousands from Nigeria to Syria to Pakistan, this book offers an answer to what is fast becoming the world’s number one problem.

Evidence that nobody is ever hopeless. Pardon me for being cheesy as fuck, but she is one of the most amazing women I have ever read about.

I'll state the obvious: If their god can do no wrong, then trans people are exactly who they should be.

I love how they lose perspective over some issues.

Introduction

What a person believes isn't really an issue or any other person's business. It's more what a person does with their belief which makes it relevant by infringing upon another in anyway. The rights of an individual to practice their faith ends where the rights of another to not be encroached upon begin.

Mission: 
Non violently oppose religious doctrine which promotes hate, prejudice, non free thinking and where it causes harm. Not singling out any particular faith. Where the faith causes harm no longer can people of sense and reason stand by and be perceived to respect their dogma through this perceived unspoken agreement to not speak out for fear of causing offense. There is nothing we could say or do to come close to the offense the doctrines of faith create to those of us with any sense of decency, fairness and love of all humanity. Ironically unlike the many conditions the faiths place upon their acceptance of certain people and groups our respect for humanity is unconditional beyond neither hurting another or depriving another. If it harms none then do as you will.

Islam and Judaism are seen as minority groups in the West and as racist far right organisations hide behind the banner of anti-religion. We have and want no association with such groups and do all that is physically possible to prevent such groups or their members using our page as a vehicle for their hate.
