As secular humanist who cares more about people than their imaginary gods, I would love to see Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and atheists support doing more to help the predominately Muslim Rohingya people, as well as to see all of the above plus Muslims support preventing the longstanding abuses against the predominately Christian Karen minority in Burma/Myanmar. Muslims, Buddhists, Christians, nonbelievers, and others should all live in a free and secular Burma! Continue reading Only a secular Burma will free the “Muslim” Rohingya and “Christian” Karen minorities from oppression
The accusations against Huma Abedin are false….unless you think liberal feminists who were raised Muslim and grow up to marry pro-Israel Jewish liberal politicians (her husband is Anthony Weiner) are likely candidates for Islamic radical sleeper agents. Michelle Bachmann is a useful idiot in an ongoing campaign by Christian fascists who seek to use both legitimate and illegitimate fears of Islamism and Shariah to further the aims of Christian theocracy, Christian Zionism, and capitalist plutocracy in America. Continue reading Michelle Bachmann’s accusations against Huma Abedin are false.
So the Democrats are bringing Islam into the Party and they have always embraced liberal Christianity, while the Republicans embrace right wing and even fascist fundamentalist Christianity and they both embrace radical religious Jewish and Christian Zionism, supporting the stealing of Muslim, Christian, and atheist Palestinian land based upon scriptural notions of “God’s Law” = just like Shariah Law. Islamic Shariah is by far the worst form of religious rule, but I wouldn’t want to live under previous Dalai Lamas Buddhist rules either with the gouging out of eyes and various other tortures for dissidents and unbelievers, nor to live … Continue reading Radical Islamists at the DNC
The radical far right, anti-immigration, anti-socialism, pro-fundamentalist Christian theocracy movement is attempting to hijack the anti-Islamist, anti-Shariah movement to use as a tool to promote their own fascist theocratic agenda both in the US and in Europe. They must be opposed! It is time for the supporters of freedom and equality to stand in opposition to all forms of theocracy as a united front worldwide. Radical Islam and fundamentalist Christianity are two sides of the same coin! Continue reading Radical Islam and fundamentalist Christianity are two sides of the same coin!
The Saudi Regime Is Pro-Islamist but Anti-Al Qaeda by Abel Ashes The Saudi government supports Salafists but not Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has as a stated aim, the overthrow of the Royal Family. There are accusations that Omar al-Bayoumi funded 9/11 hijackers and whether that is or is not the case, it is also the case that support for Al Qaeda is punishable by death as an act of treason in the Saudi Kingdom and that the Al Qaeda leadership have long considered the Saudi regime to be enemies worthy of death. Some would argue that the Saudi regime is … Continue reading The Saudi Regime Is Pro-Islamist but Anti-Al Qaeda
Obama is far from perfect but he is way closer to perfection than George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan. In my opinion he is the best President we’ve had since Jimmy Carter who was also far from perfect (Indonesia, Afghanistan, Iran, “The Carter Doctrine”). I am a lifelong third party/nonpartisan/independent voter, but this time I will vote for the lesser of two evils (much lesser). I am convinced that if Obama does not win reelection things will get much, much worse very rapidly on all fronts. Continue reading It can get worse….much worse
I support human rights activists everywhere. I support them in Bahrain, Syria, Russia, the United States, Saudi Arabia, China, Columbia, Tunisia, Egypt, Iran, North Korea, Myanmar, Indonesia, Israel, Gaza, the West Bank, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Mali, Afghanistan, Iraq… et cetera, et cetera. I don’t engage in this bullshit of excusing human rights abuses and corrupt leaders because of some perceived nationalistic or global agendas. An act of tyranny is an act of tyranny no matter who commits it and an act of liberation is an act of liberation no matter who commits it. Continue reading Human rights abuses are human rights abuses wherever they occur
