When challenged for his egregious outburst on local television tonight, Shithead Venner first withdrew his praise for the Taliban, after admitting that he had never met any of them and that he really didn't know what they stood for apart from 'supporting each other and being solid in their faith', then went on to say that it was as wrong to regard all members of the Taliban as bad as it had been to regard all Germans as members of the Nazi Party during World War II. As if that non sequitur was in any way relevant , which it is not, or excused Venner's egregious exhortations of support for the Taliban. Not that we should be surprised at Venner's support for the Taliban, for in his eyes they are 'people of faith' and are worthy of respect per se, even if their faith is inimical to the faith of himself and those of us of no faith whatsoever. Nevertheless, there is one thing on which Venner and the Taliban do agree, and that is that women have no place in their so-called god's ministries, for this was the man who burst out in tears when the Church of England voted to ordain women Bishops and claimed that he had never been so ashamed about anything in his life as by the Church's decision to go against so-called 'biblical teaching'.
Maybe it's time to send Venner to Helmand for a protracted holiday, protected only by his so-called 'faith', to meet the Taliban and tell them how nice he thinks they are.
Frankly, if they murdered him, as one hopes they would, it would be a genuine blessing to the rest of us.

"...more open about their beliefs."Except, of course when their beliefs are what the rest of us recognise as justified true beliefs and correctly identify soi-disant religious believers as either the phoneys or nutters that they undoubtedly are.

Chalomish's co-accused, partner and former convicted drug-dealer, Nasir Abbas, who has now followed Montague Tigg's example and 'done a bunk', told the Court that the good Rabbi was so overcome with generosity for his fellow man - and women - that he put "[the drug] in a glass dish [before cutting it] with another substance, and anyone visiting [their flat] was free to help themselves."
Since Chalomish is a Rabbi, presumably he took pains to ensure that this mixture fulfilled the requirements of kashrut. Either that, or he simply didn't care as long as he was getting his rocks off.
Question for the Rabbi: Is it kosher to fellate someone?
Answer: Only if they've been circumcised first!
The fact that Rabbi Chalomish "...also had a substantial store of drugs, cocaine, and cash at his home address" does not demonstrate anything other than his complete integrity and also the fact that he is a worthy exemplar to his community.
The trial continues.
According to reports, the woman was taken to the public grounds where she was buried up to her waist, then she was stoned to death in front of the crowds on Tuesday afternoon.
Naturally her boyfriend was spared her gruesome and inhumane death, as he was let off rather lightly with a mere 100 lashes. So much for the equality of women under Islam.
And all this in the name of their sick, misogynistic
Mind you, anyone who seriously believes that Muhammad flew to Paradise on the back of a horse is capable of believing any nonsense whatsoever.
Fucking madmen all of them!

Today a BBC report demonstrates the humanity that Islam is capable of exercising, for it states that in that shit-hole which is Somalia a man has been murdered by lapidation for adultery but his pregnant girlfriend is to be spared the same fate, though only until she gives birth to the bastard, whereupon her child will be wrenched from her and she will undergo the same inhumane butchery that her former lover did. According to an eyewitness, the poor wretch:
"... was screaming and blood was pouring from his head during the stoning. After seven minutes he stopped moving."Apparently this is the third time that someone has been put to death by this barbaric torture this year for adultery alone. One of these poor victims was a 13-year-old girl who, according to human rights groups, had actually been raped and had not, therefore, committed adultery by any sensible definition of that word. Not that these brutal Islamists are capable of applying sense, for if they were, they would have to acknowledge that their whole religion is based on nothing more than the ravings of lunatics.
Fuckwits all of them, not to mention barbaric, murderous scum too.
Not that the apologists for Islam are very forthcoming in condemning these butchering bastards for the inhumane atrocities they carry out in the name of their so-called 'god'.
If ever one needed any persuasion that 'allah' is anything but compassionate, all they need to do is to consider the atrocities carried out in 'his' name.
The humanity of Islam, indeed!
Perhaps they need reminding that actions speak louder than words.

As I am unafraid of a challenge, and expecting nothing more than the usual specious nonsense allegedly substantiating the existence of the entity which religionists refer to as 'god', I attended the meeting.
How surprised I was, for these priests were completely frank with me and readily admitted what I have known ever since I was capable or thinking rationally for myself. 'Gods' (yes, plural, for thousands of them have been imagined by their competing inventors over the millennia), exist in the minds of their soi-disant believers only. Furthermore, those who claim to believe suffer from either psychological deficits or a cripplingly low intelligence, excepting only the majority of those who are administrants, as these are simply exploitative sociopathic manipulators of the others.
At least one has to acknowledge the candour of the clerics I met, even if their trade, based as it is on human exploitation, is truly vile. But then, as they readily admitted, it beats working for a living, though I dare say that drug-dealers, pornographers, pimps and other kinds of low-life sleaze-merchants can offer the same justification for parasiting off their host societies and at the expense of their victims.
So here he is in all his mendacious self-glorification, Dr Stephen Venner the out-going Bishop of Dover and Bishop in Canterbury. This vainglorious charlatan has gone on record in the 'Kent on Sunday' condemning the BBC Radio Kent's decision to drop the Thought for the Day religious programme from its Saturday slot.
According to this self-serving parasite and mendacious deluder of the the ignorant, the needy, the delusional and all those who are psychopathologically challenged, "All that is best [in society] comes from people of faith".
So I take it as read, Stevie, that you consider that the Twin Towers incident in September 2001 or the London Bombings in July 2007 - to name but two 'contributions' to society by "people of faith" - were something to applaud; after all, the perpetrators of those atrocities believed in the same so-called 'god' as you!
And then there is the matter of the homophobia, misogyny, and promulgation of superstitious nonsense which the organisation you belong to exemplifies. (Just to remind less knowledgeable readers, it was Stevie-boy here who broke down in tears as he told the General Synod of the Church of England in July 2008 that, "for the first time in my life I am ashamed" at its decision to ignore the misogynistic views of church traditionalists like himself by allowing the adoption of women bishops.)
Clearly, therefore, Stevie is not ashamed that he has spent a lifetime lying about the existence of his so-called 'god', despite no-one over the millennia ever having been able to produce a single scintilla of credible empirical evidence to support this make-believe entity's existence he claims to 'believe' in. But, hey, why let a little matter like proof trouble you, Stevie, when you can so readily ignore and egregiously disparage all the worthwhile contributions that atheists have made to society.
The measure of this man's megalomania and delusional psychopathy is exemplified by comments he made recently about his impending retirement:
"The time for us to bid farewell is several months away, and I know that in the meantime we shall continue to discover what God is doing among us, and to seek to join in."I seem to recollect that Maggie Thatcher also used the royal 'we' and was roundly excoriated for it, but clearly Bish Vainglorious Venner suffers from the same overweening sense of self-importance.
As far as I'm concerned, Stevie, the sooner you go the better, as it is "people of faith" like you who have fomented and perpetrated much of the evil and horrors that mankind has endured over the millennia at your hands.

According to this clownish cleric, allowing women to show both eyes peering from behind a niqab encourages them to be seductive, so he wants them to be forced to cover up one eye and thereby restrict their ability to drive good Muslim men into paroxysms of uncontrollable erotic fantasies and distract them from the teachings of Allah.
Well, apart from it being just plain wrong to blame women qua women for the actions of lascivious men, the proposal is clearly unworkable, since women with only one eye peering from their niqab could be accused of giveing men the 'come on' every time they blinked naturally.
A better suggestion for Sheikh al-Habadan to have made is that all Muslim women should be blinded in both eyes with a sharp stick so that they couldn't use those organs for seducing otherwise good Muslim men from the narrow path of the faithful.
Of course that would be unlikely to stop those wanton women from flaunting themselves seductively in other ways, so it might be better if the good Sheikh also suggested that they had both their tits carved off with a blunt scimitar and their vagina's stuffed full of broken glass, for surely no Muslim man would find them desirable then.
There is another way to address the problem of women leading men astray, however: cut the dicks of every Muslim man, starting with Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan!
And without the use on anaesthetic too.

Question: Where else would a 60 year old man be allowed to marry an 8 year old little girl? (NB: The clue is in the piccie).
Answer: In Saudi Arabia,the state in which the holiest of Muslim shrines is situate, of course. After all, it was good enough for Muhammad to marry a little girl, which is no doubt why earlier this year, the country's highest religious authority, the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Shaikh said that it was not against Islamic law to marry off young girls to lecherous old men who pay the children's families large dowries for the undoubted privilege.
But it's OK because it is Insha'Allah!
Despite an attempt by the girl's mother to have the marriage annulled, a court in Unaiza upheld the marriage but the judge said that that once the little girl reached puberty, she could ask for a divorce.
If it wasn't so fucking sick, it would be funny!
PS: Those who want more details can find them here.

I'm really and always have been in a way more interested in religion than politics [said Tony, and he continued by saying that he is] really, really committed to finding a way of making religious faith relevant to the modern world".But the most revealing remark of all was when BBC's correspondent went on to state that Blair had claimed that:
"...the secular world needs to understand religion."Tony, the secular world does understand religion; religion is a mental disorder, just like schizophrenia or any other form of psychotic disorder.
Blair concluded the interview by handing out photographs of himself (one of which is reproduced above) with these prophetic words:
"This is not for me a 'this year and next year' project. This is a rest of my life project. So over time people will be able to see you in a different light."Perhaps we should just grant you your wish and proclaim you as the new Messiah before nailing you to the cross like the(war)criminal you are, you
Footnote: According to 'The Telegraph' 'Bunco' Blair is the most highly paid speaker on the planet, recently earning as much as £6,000 per minute for addressing a 2,000-strong audience in Manila, and his vast earnings could very well net him a staggering £80 million by the time he reaches retirement age in 10 years' time. Naturally, like the good Christian and would-be Messiah, Tone is giving it all away to the poor - NOT. I'm also willing to bet that our Tone, the good socialist that he is, is resorting to the legal practice of 'tax avoidance' to spare handing over too much of his wealth to the rest of us, even though his former Chancellor and current incumbent of his old office still refers to tax avoidance as if it is a synonym for the highly-illegal 'tax evasion'. Sauce for the goose, eh Tone?

"The present financial crisis has dealt a heavy blow to the idea that human fulfilment can be thought about just in terms of material growth and possession."Williams will then tell his huddled flock of sheep that religion is the only way to achieve fulfilment, and gives this as a fine example:
"It's worth remembering that Paul of Tarsus joined the Christian community not as a well-meaning religious enquirer but as someone who had been the equivalent of a terrorist gunman, someone who had supervised the activities of a private militia devoted to abducting and imprisoning members of the Christian sect. He is a perfectly intelligible figure in the back streets of modern Beirut or Baghdad."Presumably Williams means by this that religious communities should give support and succour to murderous terrorists and that they, in turn, should feel safe in seeking refuge under the holey umbrella (or should that be 'holy umbrella') of religion.
Don't you think that your exhortation constitute an offence under the Terrorism Act 2006, Dr Williams?

"Religion has never mattered more to the world than it does now."Mr Mendacity went on to give his reason why:
"In this globalised world, we are more than ever interconnected, but we are also more uncertain. What were firm boundaries of race, culture and identity are becoming fluid. In such a world the involvement of religion becomes ever more crucial. It can either play a positive role, helping to deepen understanding and working for the common good, or it can be exploited to become destructive, emphasising difference and reinforcing distrust of the 'other'."There follows paragraph after paragraph of mawkish prose in an attempt to justify Blair's own psychopathological need to 'do God', to use his own inimitable words, and why he thinks that it is important for the rest of us to give religion the respect (he thinks that) it deserves.
Normally, I would be happy to dissect Blair's empty rhetoric and expose it for the specious mumbo-jumbo it is, but this time Richard Dawkins has done it for me (and a far better job he has done of it that I could have). Dawkins' response can also be found in the 'New Statesman' but some of his best satire is reproduced here:
"...we need to understand and sympathise with the deep hurt and offence that a man can feel if we insult his traditional beliefs by trying to stop him beating his wife, or setting fire to his daughter or cutting off her clitoris (and please don’t let’s hear any racist or Islamophobic objections to these important expressions of faith). We shall support the introduction of sharia courts, but on a strictly voluntary basis – only for those whose husbands and fathers freely choose it."To those of you who enjoy elegant prose, especially when it is satirical, I can do no better than direct you to Dawkin's piece in its entirety, the link to which is given above (or here for those who missed it).
But before you all rush off, let me just take issue with one of Blair's egregiously false statements:
"I set up the Tony Blair Faith Foundation ...to make the case for religion as a force for good..."Well, Tony, if you really wanted to do some good in the world (apart from promoting your own needy psychopathology and overblown self-esteem, that is) you would have set up a foundation to expose religion, ALL RELIGION, as the completely specious nonsense that it is. However, I suspect that you have always subscribed to the following words ascribed to Cardinal Caraffa (subsequently Pope Paul IV) for these demonstrate the only justification for religion apart from it being a means of controlling the masses by duplicitous exploiters, pathological manipulators and complete charlatans like yourself:
"Populus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur (the public wishes to be fooled, therefore let it be fooled)."Unfortunately for you, Tony, and all the exploitative scum who hold some religious office, the public are becoming more and more aware of the fact the basis of all religion is based on nothing more than mumbo-jumbo and has no basis in objective fact whatsoever.
To paraphrase Georges Rey, Tony, at some level you are a liar, but then we all knew that.

Also lost on those complainers objecting to their imaginary heroes being 'sullied' with the suggestion of homosexuality was the fact that the site regularly uses pictures and graphics of other imaginary entities in a humorous, sarcastic, mocking or satirical way, despite the fact that it is known that these usages are offensive to people of a religious persuasion. So, as far as the complainers are concerned, it is OK for them to mock an imaginary creature called 'God' but don't anyone dare to do the same for the equally imaginary creatures known as Batman and Robin.
Strangely enough, when one commentator asked the complainers to explain why it is OK for them to mock the revered and respected objects of those foolish enough to claim to be religious but that one must not to mock Batman and Robin, thereby offending people like themselves who apparently imbue those imaginary creatures with some kind of misplaced reverence and respect, that commentator was met with vituperation and calumny by one of the Moderators on the site who goes by the pseudonym' Krystalline Apostate'.
One is left with the ineluctable conclusion that people like 'KA' are indistinguishable from those of a religious persuasion: both believe that imaginary entities they choose to support should be treated with respect and that their reputations should be unsullied and sacrosanct; they also appear to be closet homophobes. What a bunch of fuckwits.
Thanks for demonstrating your complete lack of personal integrity and non-existent intellectual rigour, KA, but if you don't like this comment you can console yourself with the recollection that it was you who told me to fuck off back to my own blog and post my comments there rather than question your delicate sensibilities on GIFS.
One final thing, KA, if you don't like reading my comments here, you can take the advice you gave me and fuck off back to whence you came for you are simply another ignorant, foul-mouthed, mendacious and duplicitous prat, and there is truly nothing to distinguish you from the theists whom who pour excoriation on.
Batman and Robin are neither any more real than 'God' is, you delusional moron, and neither should they be free from mockery or satire.
Thanks for demonstrating what a buffoon you really are, Douglas. Little wonder you are a laughing-stock behind your back.

Perhaps they're just another pair of religious hypocrites?
Still, I'm willing to bet that they'd tell you that they adopted their ridiculous apparel willingly and that they are delighted to make themselves totally subservient to their menfolk - and Allah, of course. Next they'd tell you that they deserved lapidation if they ever committed adultery (some chance whilst wearing a bed sheet permanently).
But fair enough, if that's how they wish to waste their lives, let them do so. But why here and not in some shithole of a medieval Muslim state where they belong?
According to 'The Telegraph' Williams bleated on to the Director General of the BBC, Mark Thompson, that the BBC must not ignore it's Christian audience - despite it being an extreme minority and ignoring the fact thatthe majority of the population of the UK do not attend any form of religious service on a regular basis, if at all.
Apparently, Williams' intervention comes amid mounting concern among senior members of the Church of England that the BBC is downgrading its religious output and giving preferential treatment to minority faiths.
Unfortunately, as a public service broadcaster, the BBC has a duty to provide religious programmes. Which reminds me, since relgionists regularly claim that atheism is a 'religion', when will we see 'The Anti-Theist and Misoclere Society' getting its own slot on the BBC?
When relgionists provide indisputable empiric evidence that their so-called 'god' exists, that's when.
For his trouble, a Dutch court held that Wilders was "inciting hatred and discrimination" and that "it is in the public interest to prosecute" him. Additionally, Wilders has received hundreds of death threats from Muslims - the issuing of which is a criminal offence under Dutch law, but no action has been taken against the perpetrators (surprise, surprise).
And to heap even more ordure on Wilders, the UK Government banned him from entering the UK on the grounds that his "presence in the U.K. would pose a genuine, present, and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society." The letter from the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, went on to tell Wilders that "your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere, would threaten community harmony and therefore public security."
So there you have it folks, anyone who tells the truth about Muslims is (a) likely to be prosecuted in their own country, (b) refused entry into another, and (c) finally murdered by the criminally insane people that he righteously complains about.

"...a serious affront to human dignity leading to a restriction on the freedom of [religious] adherents and incitement to religious violence"Accordingly, criticising religion - especially the Muslim one - is considered to be a human rights violation. The resolution continued, which would actually be screamingly funny if it were not so outrageously untrue:
"Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism."Unsurprisingly, this egregious piece of arrant nonsense was proposed by Pakistan on behalf of 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (amusingly their acronym is OIC, which sounds identical to the English slang word 'oik', meaning someone who is inferior due to their ignorance, and anyone who claims to 'believe' in 'God' is certainly demonstrating that trait).
Fortunately this is a non-binding resolution but it is clearly not the end of the matter for religionists in general and Muslims in particular are continually trying to stop anyone from voicing any criticism of their delusional religious beliefs and the atrocities against humanity which their adherents are continuing to carry out in the name of their respective religions.
Still, I suppose that it is heartening that Muslims are now trying to silence their critics by legal means, rather than simply murdering us in accordance with Allah's exhortations.

According to the delusional lunatic Williams:
"God's faithfulness stands, assuring us that even in the most appalling disaster love will not let us go - but it will not be a safety net that guarantees a happy ending in this world."Williams continued by warning that humanity will be gradually "choked, drowned, or starved by its own stupidity". However, he was then overcome by an inexplicable and entirely unaccustomed vein of complete honesty when he admitted that he could no longer in good conscience continue to dupe his psychologically needy flock with the egregious lie that there ever had been an entity called 'God', and that 'Jesus' had ever existed.
At that point, Williams awoke and realised that it had all been a horrible dream - until he found the naked altar boy lying beside him and the horrible truth dawned upon him once again. "I am a complete phoney," he opined,"and one day the world will realise the truth for themselves. God never existed, except in the minds of delusional psychopaths."
With that realisation Williams kicked the altar boy out of his bed and ordered a silver-salver breakfast.

The Church wonders aloud why, if atheists and secularists believe baptism is so meaningless, they are letting it upset them.Nevertheless, they do supply the answer to the Churches' protestations by giving the last word in their report to John Hunt, the protagonist of the story who 'debaptised' himself:
"I think it's important that more people speak out and say they don't subscribe to the historic beliefs of the Church."I would go further; not only is it important not to subscribe to the spurious superstitious and delusional 'beliefs' of religious people, but that one should challenge the organisations which support them with the fraudulent claims that the supernatural entity which they refer to as 'God' exists, or ever has done.
The fact remains that all so-called 'religious belief' is quantitatively indistinguishable from any other form of delusional psychopathology. Just because the ignorant, the superstitious and the psychologically needy have been with us for millennia is no reason for perpetrating the lie that is religion or giving the parasites who promulgate the fraud that religion represents succour and freedom from excoriation by honest people.
Which brings me back to the title to this piece: 'Atheism Equals Religious Honesty!' for you will certainly get no honesty from any religious organisation or soi-disant religious believer when it comes to addressing the lies which they promulgate and claim to 'believe' in, because their whole edifice of so-called 'belief' is based on a gross impairment of their inability to test objective reality.

Also excommunicated were the doctors who operated on the little girl, despite the fact that they did so legally under Brazilian law which permits an abortion only on the grounds rape or health risks to the mother.
Even the President of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, has criticised the Archbishop roundly, but the latter has the egregious hubris to proclaim:
...the law of God was above any human law.The Archbonzo went on to add:
Besides, if God had not meant men to rape children for our own pleasure, he would not have given us the equipment or desire to do so. Therefore, it must be part of God's law that we do so!Nevertheless, the degenerates in the Roman Catholic Church demonstrated the extent of their merciful interpretation of God's law by not excommunicating the raped nine-year-old girl - probably because they were too busy queuing up to have a go at her themselves.
What a fucking sick religion and what fucking sick people inhabit the clergy.
There is no God, you fuckwits!
Nor is there any justification, legally, morally, or otherwise for your sick pronouncements.
You evil fucking bastards.
This is God speaking.
I just want you to know that I care and that I'm listening.
Unfortunately the power of prayer is unreliable, which is why I have opened up a new telephone hotline to enable you
The number to call from the UK is (00)31 644 244901, but callers from other countries will have to consult their international dialling code booklet for the appropriate prefix for The Netherlands where my trans-galactic office is situated for the moment (why should I have to do everything for you, you lazy sods).
Unfortunately, due to the pressure of work, I am not able to to take your calls personally, but you will hear a recording which states:
"This is the voice of God, I am not able to speak to you at the moment, but please leave a message."(but see footnote)Some detractors and evil-minded atheist scum have proclaimed that the fact that I am unable to deal with everyone's telephone calls simultaneously proves that I am not omniscient, but that is to misunderstand what is meant by that term.The fact of the matter is that I chooses to limit my omniscience in order to preserve the freewill and dignity of my
Actually, truth be told, I'm not God, and it isn't my answer phone, though the number is real and does work (try it and see you
In fact, the whole thing is the idea of Dutch artist Johan van der Dong of Grijpskerk in the Netherlands. Johan wants God to be reachable by everyone so people can leave Him messages. Meanwhile, Johan's psychiatrist, Aldo Van Sprinklees, has gone on record as saying that he is responding well to his new medication and that he should soon be fit for discharge from the secure unit where he is currently residing.
According to the BBC, critics say the project mocks those with religious beliefs.
As if such a thing was ever likely to happen.
Unfortunately God is monoglottal, so this message is delivered only in Dutch, therefore, unless one speaks that rather unmellifluous language, one will have to take this writer's word for the translation into a civilised tongue.

In his defence, however, Sodoff did explain that the Church of Rome is indistinguishable in its perfidy from the Anglican Communion, or any of what he called 'the other joke religions of the world', since all of them 'were at it', as he put it so pithily.
Nevertheless, it did come as something of a surprise to observe this 'Prince of the Church' sitting on his throne in St Peters whilst he told his audience that they had all been duped by a bunch of charlatans like himself 'ever since Jesus stood up and proclaimed that he was the Son of God'. As the Cardinal went on to say, 'If God had existed, then we could all claim to have been his progeny, since he allegedly created everything, but he didn't and he hadn't and we aren't, so there'.
At that point, once of the members of his Eminence's audience stood up and demanded, 'If you are saying that everything that you told us before was a pack of lies, why should we believe you now?' and immediately his voice was enjoined by the others, all of whom were making similar demands of the wily old prelate. Whereupon Angelo Sodoff stood up, towering above the clamouring masses in his 6-inch stiletto heels by Jimmy Choo, raised his bejewelled hands above their heads and solemnly proclaimed, 'Don't worry, my children, this was just a test of your faith, which I am glad to say you all passed. Now my acolytes will circulate amongst you with their begging-bowls and you will be expected to give generously!' And with that, Sodoff pirouetted whilst gathering his silken and lace robes around his loins, and minced off to find new sheep to sheer.

As if God needs Dawkins' endorsement, for anyone or anything which can create the entire Universe within a measly 6 human days needs the acknowledgement of a mere human being, even if he is an intellectual giant dedicated to the discovery and exposition of observable fact (and who conducts himself with decorum and integrity which is lost on his detractors). To believe otherwise is to demonstrate a hubris which is as monumental as the edifices of all the churches built in God's name.
Oh dear, it is truly sad the depths to which these fanatical and militant atheists will go in order to deny the truth of God's existence.
One only has to look at the suffering that God the creator of everything visits on the world and those of us in it for evidence of His benevolence towards us.
And why do you think, Mr Clever Atheist, does God the all-powerful allow evil to exist if it was not to drive us into His loving arms?
Next, you clever biologist you, will be telling us that it is impossible for a virgin to have given birth to God's Son, Jesus, when The Bible tells us that it was so. How do you know that doctors in the Ancient World hadn't discovered the technique of artificial insemination, Mr Clever-Dick Dawkins?
Frankly, I'll just bet that you are now trying to cover your bets seeing as how you are nearing the point where you shuffle of this mortal coil, but God won't be fooled, Mr Dawkins. Whilst the Devil might make Him look stupid from time to time, you won't, I'm afraid.
Besides, making 'God' look stupid should be left to the professionals - those who profess to believe in this non-existent delusional fantasy, particularly the ones who hold high office in that self-appointed clique called 'the clergy', who set themselves up as special interpreters and spokespersons on 'His' behalf.
Show me a true believer in 'God' and I will show you a psychopatholgically dysfunctional psyche, and those who are not psychopathic are not true believers but simply mouthing meaningless platitudes in the hope that they can make some capital out of it.
When I told my psychiatrist that I believed that a tribe of magical two-headed dwarves lived under my bed and came out to play tricks on me only after I had fallen asleep, he diagnosed me as suffering from delusional psychosis and prescribed a course of risperidone to counter my psychotic behaviour.
On my next visit, however, I told him that I no longer believed in dwarves under my bed, but instead had come to believe in a magical giant who lived in the sky and who had created everything, including my disturbed fantasies, my psychiatrist asked me if this giant had a name. When I told him that the giant's name was 'God', the psychiatrist immediately fell upon his knees, raised both arms in supplication, begged mercy from my ephemeral, all-powerful giant, and pronounced me sane.
Actually he didn't, because they never do, but what he did say was that because my delusions were now fixated on a culturally sanctioned nonsensical and unsupported belief system, the psychiatric profession pusillanimously refused to categorise them as qualitatively undifferentiated from my earlier delusions regarding magic dwarves living under my bed. In short, my learned professional insisted, even though my proclaimed belief in 'God' was unsubstantiated in reality, his profession was prepared to overlook my latest delusional beliefs because to do otherwise would attract attacks from the powerful cadre of manipulators and extortionists who have set themselves up as the special and knowledgeable spokespersons for this so-called God that they promulgate to the psychologically damaged and needy like myself.
As if anyone would do such an underhand thing as to proclaim that God exists if He didn't!
As my priest said to me when I subsequently recounted all this to him, "Why do you think God sent those dwarves to torment you if it wasn't to direct you to Him?"
Why indeedy, Mr Psychiatrist!
So, now Father Aloysius and I spend lovely evenings together in mutual masturbation whilst he tells me wonderful stories about God and his magical son Jesus and how I'm now one of the chosen ones that will live for ever after in Never-Never-Land (which the ignorant refer to as 'Heaven') whilst all you unbelievers will simply die and cease to exist.
Who says Christians are mad?
Fred, and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper, intended visiting the UK to protest against a play called The Laramie Project being staged in Queen Mary's College, Basingstoke, about a man killed for being gay. As Fred said recently:
"God hates Gays, He tells us so in the Bible, and that's why he had His own Son crucified!"Fortunately for us, HMG doesn't share Fred's repulsive homophobic views and has banned him and his misbegotten daughter from entering the UK. The UK Border Agency said it opposed "extremism in all its forms". A spokesman added: "Both these individuals have engaged in unacceptable behaviour by inciting hatred against a number of communities."
Not to be outdone, Shirley riposted with the accusation that the British government is "filthy" for thinking they have the power "to keep the word of God from coming into her borders". As for the Western Baptist Church, it's website proclaims:
"In merry old England they plan to further enrage the living God by putting on the farce known commonly as The Laramie Project.Obviously these guys are so homophobic that they completely ignore all of Jesus' exhortations to 'love one another' - no doubt because they think it it smacks of 'gayness'. Guffaw.
We will picket them, and see if they actually believe those lies they tell about how tolerant and accepting Brits are."
Furthermore, since there is no credible empiric evidence that there is any such thing as 'the living God' that these sick and degenerate fuckwits in the Western Baptist Church - or any other fucking church, for that matter - continually rant on about, their claims as to the existence of such an entity are based on nothing other than their own self-delusion and psychopathological needs. In short, their so-called beliefs fail to meet the criteria of that which epistemologists and psychologists define as 'justified true belief', which makes them all delusional psychopaths.
Frankly, I think that the US authorities should ensure that members of the WBC are kept in a secure facility for the mentally insane and never allowed out in public. Furthermore, the medical team charged with their welfare should up the dosage of risperidone, as quite clearly they are all dangerously out of touch with reality and are a menace to the rest of us.
According to a recent interview given to Swedish TV, Dick 'The Prick' Williamson declaimed:
"I believe that the historical evidence is strongly against, is hugely against, six million Jews having been deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler."No doubt Wily Williamson was just trying to ingratiate himself with his boss and former member of the Hitler youth, Joey 'Ratsarse' Ratzinger, AKA Pope Benzedrine XVI, without appreciating that Josef doesn't like to be reminded of his misspent younger days when he enjoyed strutting around in that lovely black uniform and patent leather boots, kicking sand into the eyes of 7-stone weaklings and those with a Semitic stripe. Now Il Poopoo has ordered Williamson to recant, otherwise he'll revoke the Bishop's altar-boy shagging privileges, which has annoyed Tricky Dickie enormously.
"What's the difference," he bleated, "between denying that the Nazis killed 6 million Jews and claiming that some supernatural prestidigitator called 'God' created the universe? Both are lies of the same magnitude!"
Ratfink Josef was less than impressed with Dicko's analogy, however. He was overheard muttering to some members of the Curia, "That's complete nonsense, for there is solid evidence that we , I mean the Nazis, did murder 6 million Jews, but there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that our make-believe 'God' exists!"
Which brings us back to the question being pondered by the Very Reprehensible Bishop in the picture above.
Qualitatively there is no difference; both assertions are the product of mendacity or delusion, but then that's the definition of religion.

In short, all religious belief is based on backwardness, superstition, ignorance, and psychological neediness, and none of it has any underpinnings of logic or empiric evidence to substantiate it; it is, by definition, simply based on 'faith' - i.e. the hope that things are as one would like them to be, and not as they really are - the power of self-delusion, and a complete willingness to shun critical analysis of the entirely spurious claims made by religious adherents.
Marrying a child to a dog is no more ridiculous than the Christian claims that a non-existent person called 'Jesus' fed 5000 people with a couple of fish and a few loaves of bread, or that he was born of a virgin, or rose from the dead - to name but some of the nonsense put about in this non-existent person's name.
Neither does it explain why these Christian fascists like to claim that their particular so-called 'god' is any more real than any of the other 4,536 known 'gods' that mankind has invented over the millennia.
For Christians the answer to that is simple: all the other 4535 'gods' are imaginary, as only theirs is the 'real deal'.
Oh dear, I'm going to have an apoplexy laughing myself sick at that one.

In fact, any member of society who is intellectually honest enough and not so psychopathologically dysfunctional that they are not willing to admit the truth should be prepared to admit that people who believe in non-existent supernatural entities are mad, whether they give those entities grand names such as 'God' or facetious ones such as 'The Flying Spaghetti Monster', for there is no difference in their psychological states; they are at best delusional and at worst seriously mad.
So, which are you, John Sentamu?
Or perhaps you are just the third kind of so-called Christian? One of those who simply professes the faith in order to exploit the weaknesses of others for your own self-aggrandisement and self-promotion?
Meanwhile, it's about time that more honest people spoke out and put you and your lot in their place, for all religious faiths are fundamentally just a means of enslaving and exploiting the masses by those who simply enjoy manipulating others.
