The attached article details an assault on a Muslim woman by a man who thought that slapping her in the face with bacon was funny. I've seen it posted a couple of times and it's gotten amused comments. As if the use of bacon to slap a Muslim makes it alright somehow.

Although the prohibition on eating pork is religious and therefore stupid (at least in my opinion) I still don't see how assault can be justified. It doesn't matter if the victim is a Muslim, a Jew, or a vegetarian with no religious affiliation, it's wrong. The use of bacon is just aggravating the assault and trying to make it more personal for the victim.

Do you think that this sort of bullying is growing more widespread as society becomes more divided on religious grounds? If so, how do you think society should deal with it?

Is it appropriate to criticise the leader of the free world in such a way? To refer to him as an 'asteroid of awfulness' may well be accurate but should other politicians be making these criticisms?

Should more of them speak out against him? Is it inappropriate not to criticise someone so utterly unsuited to the role?

Is the current US religious and political system leading to an age of superstition and ignorance? Does anyone think it can work in the long term?

Magic Sky Fairy

Is magic sky fairy an unfair term for the god of Abraham?

I think that, though it is dismissive of the millennia of tradition anf is designed to ridicule belief in such a god there is no doubt that it is accurate.

The god of the bible is said to reside in the sky, "Our Father, who art in heaven...". In Hebrew the same word is used for "sky" and "heaven". There are numerous references to the gods living in the sky or riding on clouds.

There can be no doubt that the myths of Jesus and Yahweh feature lots of magic. From the tricks of Moses to the miracles of Jesus there is magic galore.

A "fairy" is simply an example of a supernatural fauna, of which gods, angels, demons, etc are other examples.

So, is "magic sky fairy" unfair in your opinion?

I’m on the train from Bristol watching Cargo. I saw a short film years ago that is exactly the same plot and story, even some scenes are the same.

Martin Freeman manages to act too, which is a nice. His usual bumbling, semi competent Britishness has been set aside in favour of some actual acting. He should do that more often.

The supporting cast is excellent, even baby Rosie. The special effects are basic but completely in keeping with the story and very well implemented. The setting in the Australian outback is perfect. A much better setting than the usual North American arid desert.

It’s sad though. Very sad.

I wonder if this works for other churches...

...It would work with a mosque though.
