Articles free to good home

Apologies in advance if this is not appropriate; I thought that these things might be interesting to some people on this comm.

I'm preparing to move, and as such am cleaning out some stuff. I found some religion-related materials that I thought someone here might find of use/interest, so I'm offering them free of charge to anyone who wants them. The items are a magazine (I forget the title offhand; the cover story is about *yawn* Satan: For Real?), a photocopy of a Rolling Stone article on Sam Brownback (a known dominionist politician), and a few other small things that I don't remember right now.

First come first serve, if interested.

An interesting podcast


I found links to an overnight KGO radio show about "Christian Terrorists". Here are the links:


Just right click and save these- they'll expire tonight, so if you want to listen to them, grab 'em now. It's four hours long, but the OP said that Ray Taliaferro got some "fun" calls during the show. I'll bet... This guy is an outspoken agnostic and apparently enjoys annoying religious types, so be aware.

Christian Terrorism is one of those rarely mentioned subjects, but it's something worth exploring, especially since some of the sects examined in this community advocate such things.

There is an interesting article in today's NY Times; Justice Dept. Reshapes Its Civil Rights Mission. I bet you didn't know that Protestants are discriminated against more than African Americans. Some causes the JD is taking up are:

Intervening in federal court cases on behalf of religion-based groups like the Salvation Army that assert they have the right to discriminate in hiring in favor of people who share their beliefs even though they are running charitable programs with federal money.

¶Supporting groups that want to send home religious literature with schoolchildren; in one case, the government helped win the right of a group in Massachusetts to distribute candy canes as part of a religious message that the red stripes represented the blood of Christ.

¶Vigorously enforcing a law enacted by Congress in 2000 that allows churches and other places of worship to be free of some local zoning restrictions. The division has brought more than two dozen lawsuits on behalf of churches, synagogues and mosques.

Read the entire article. You have to register but it is one time thing and it is well worth it.

Avast, Matey!: ‘Faith-Based’ Pirates Sail Away With Coast Guard Cutters

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89)



The “faith-based” initiative is closely tied to the Bush administration, which has been pushing for government-funded social services provided by religious groups since 2001.

But members of Congress have long sought to slip a little taxpayer largess to their favorite religious groups. Consider, for example, the curious case of Canvasback Missions in Benicia, Calif.

And this is one of the reasons why I believe in eliminating earmark funding, let the churchs' get their own funds from their congregation and not take from the taxpayers, especially if they are a 503 non-taxable enitity.  

I think maybe Congress should repeal the tax codes on all churchs like the EU did and lets see how much funds are really slipping out of the coffers and into the pockets of not only the clergy but the politicians as well.

This group should be prosiciuted or at least fined for breaking the law and just because its a faith group it shouldn't get special treatment.

Robertson: "Islam is not a religion. It is a worldwide political movement meant on domination"

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89)

Found @[info]atheism


On the June 12 edition of the Christian Broadcasting Network's The 700 Club, following a report on Muslims in Minneapolis seeking religious accommodations at school and work, host Pat Robertson stated, "Ladies and gentlemen, we have to recognize that Islam is not a religion. It is a worldwide political movement meant on domination of the world. And it is meant to subjugate all people under Islamic law." He characterized the American Muslim community as "Islam light" and went on to say Muslims "want to take over and we want to impose Sharia on you. And before long, ladies are going to be dressed in burqas and whatever garments they would put on them, and next thing you know, men are going to be allowed to have wife-beating and you'll be beheading adulterers and so on and so forth."

Of course Pat "Asshat" Roberston is going to talk against non-Chrisitian religion, I find it funny that this hypocrite is making these statements. 

How is it that this is the same moron that drones on and on about needing to turn America into a Christian Nation again (lie) and then has the gall to say that the Muslim community wants to do the same damn thing only as a Sharia Nation (another lie)?

Holy Shit, its amazing this guy can make this up and keep a straight face.  Its no wonder sheeple listen to his rants and retoric without thinking. He has a  perfect poker face to lie like the bast of them, I think he missed his calling in Vegas.

Personally I think they need to take him and his ilk off the air as they cause more harm than good........I think they should just be a add on choice to tv programing and not part of public tv as they have no business there in the first place.

Religious Extremists from THREE MAJOR RELIGIONS Threaten the World

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]catvincent)

Via Signs of Witness; a report states what is obvious to us here but seems to elude so many others - that religious fanaticism is the problem, not the particular religion espoused. Hopefully this might get the point across to a few more folk, especially those who feel the True Evils of the world are the *other* fanatics, not the ones who use their preferred symbol-set.

'Violent Muslim, Christian and Jewish extremists invoke the same rhetoric of “good” and “evil” and the best way to fight them is to tackle the problems that drive people to extremism, according to a report obtained by Reuters.

Continued under cut. )

Like we Discordians are fond of saying... Death to all Fanatics!
