Teach Your Children Well

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

And there lies the rub: Teach him self-delusion, teach him bigotry, and teach him nothing much at all, and he will not depart from it either.

Teach your children well.

The Atrocities of Religions

Originally posted on Norbert Haupt:

Barack Obama compared Christianity with Islam yesterday in a speech. He stated that Christianity, hundreds of years ago, committed terrible atrocities in the name of God. He probably didn’t mean it that way, but it came across as if he was rationalizing that radial Islam today is really not any different from Christianity 800 years ago.

Perhaps Obama is even correct. To the best of my understanding, what the Christians did in the name of God 800 years ago sounds a lot like what ISIS does today.

The Moronic Statements of Pope Francis

Originally posted on Norbert Haupt:

Pope Francis has done some good since his reign, but last week he stepped into a pile of shit, and it will be hard to get the papal slippers clean again. When asked about the attack that killed 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo – targeted because it had printed depictions of the prophet Muhammad – he said:

One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith. There is a limit. Every religion has its dignity … in freedom of expression there are limits. If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.

This is from the head of the religion that burned people at the stake for heresy. Note:…
