Sam Harris discusses liberals and Muslim fundamentalism

leave a comment »

Sam Harris, author of End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation, discusses the threat from Muslim extremism and how liberals do not recognize that threat. Harris talks about how the West is at war with Muslims such as the ones who think that cartoonists should be beheaded because of cartoons.

Two important points that Harris makes

  • Liberals don’t know what it is like to be a fundamentalist.
  • Larger number of Muslims are radical than most people in the West realize.

Really disgusting. I can’t believe the ignorance of  people who think
the Catholic Church is so calm in modern times.

Condoms save lives. The Catholic Church kills.

Irish Catholic Church apologises for abuse by priests

leave a comment »

Wow, the Catholic Church has another “heartfelt” apology after a damaging report. If the Catholic Church was so concerned about the innocent they wouldn’t allow these atrocities to continue much less cover them up.

It was not long ago that the Vatican claimed this was only a problem in the United States. But since the cover up goes all the way up to the Pope, it is sad to think how many innocent children are subject to what the Church supposedly refers to as evil..
