Christopher Hitchens on Science vs Religion

The death of a sun every second! Our glimmer of life is part of the Big Bang’s destructive explosion.  We are lucky enough to have lived this one life.  Isn’t this one, marvelous life enough?   No! theists cry.  They want another life and will gamble this one life hoping despite the evidence that we will get another.

All ideas that enter the public sphere should be open to scrutiny and criticism. To exempt one is to give it an undeserved special place amongst subjects. I for one will not accept the comfort of the few to limit the lives of the many yet to come.

“If a believer demands that I, as a nonbeliever, observe his taboos in the public domain, he is not asking for my respect, but for my submission.

Dumb Fundies

Fundamentalist Christians want America to be a country that has:
. Deep reverence for God
. A faith based government
. Extremely strict limitations on abortion
. marriage strictly defined as man and woman
. homosexuality illegal and punishable
. all schools focused on religious education
. a culture that enforces preconceived roles for men, women and children

Such countries already exist. Iran, for example.

The Salvation Army is not a charity.

They are an evangelical protestant church which uses donated money to actively oppress gay rights.
They have threatened to close tens of thousands of New York soup kitches if they are forced to adhere to civil rights laws when dealing with gay employees.

They spend you money lobbying governments to prevent LGBT rights legislation.

Please research a charity before giving. Consider Doctors Without Borders or Amnesty International.
