Free Speech

Something's going on. To be honest, I don't really have the energy right now to give you the brief version and analysis that I normally do, but I can provide the links you need to read. This looks fairly important.

This is the first article. Selected line: "The right to criticise religion is being slowly doused in acid."

This is what happened after the first article. Selected line: "The editor and publisher of a major Indian newspaper have been arrested for "hurting the religious feelings" of Muslims after they reprinted an article from The Independent."

Here's the follow-up article. Selected line: "If fanatics who believe Muslim women should be imprisoned in their homes and gay people should be killed are insulted by my arguments, I don't resile from it. Nothing worth saying is inoffensive to everyone."

I rather like this guy.

I Have Not Abandoned This Blog

I promise.

Updates will just be slow for a while as I adjust to compensate for this new job. Not to mention that my brain is busy learning a great deal of new stuff and has no time or energy left to think up new ways to argue against theism.

If I was a normal person, this is the point where I'd take the "Who cares?" perspective on the whole question.

Whether fortunately or unfortunately, I am too stubborn for that.

I'll be back. So help me God.
