The hypocrisy of the attack on Wikileaks

After WW2 the allies EXECUTED Nazi's who failed to do what Bradley Manning DID!

Covering up evidence of war crimes by trying to hide them behind a top secret classification tag is the type of behaviour a government employs when it KNOWS a war crime has occurred and want's to HIDE IT.

Bradley Manning is a patriot. Julian Assange is also a patriot. Instead of prosecuting and demonizing these two men we should be THANKING them.

In the absence of such thanks from the establishment, I will stand in and do so myself.

Thank you.

I stand with you both and you have my continuing support.

I am an average middle aged post child rearing mother and housewife. I am a free thinker and a rationalist, whatever that is. I am fiercely interested in current events and think that a person who is willfully uninformed, or to have opinions base entirely on emotion rather than truth and fact is in fact someone I do not understand or sympathize with in the slightest degree. I would even go so far as to say I detest them in no uncertain terms.

I have many people who I respect and admire that meet my particular criteria for someone worthy of my respect. One of those people is Tim Minchin, a comedian and musician of unsurpassed wit humour, intelligence and rationality, who's success I am rabidly following with great interest. If you are an atheist I STRONGLY suggest you check him out on Youtube or his official homepage located HERE . Since the Christmas season is upon us look for his beautifully sentimental offering "White Wine in the Sun" for the holiday season which should sum up an atheists view of Christmas quite nicely and can help explain to the theists among us why we bother to mark the seasonal holiday. Just so you know Tim is donating 50% of the proceedings from the purchase of this song from itunes, to autism research.

Reflections on an inside out crazy world

Recently I tried to justify my feeling that all seriously religious folks were insane. I know there are a lot of folks who claim to *believe* and/or go to church regularly, but when pressed admit they do not KNOW whether god exists but they think he might, and they like the blanket of security that gives them, but those are NOT the people I think are insane.

No, the insane religious folks in my opinion are the ones who claim to KNOW god exists. The ones who put words into his non existent mouth or thoughts into his non existent head ... you know the ones who claim to know what god thinks and speak for him in his absence. It's funny how often those thoughts and words mirror their own beliefs.

How is it they can be so sure they KNOW what god thinks and what he wants .... I'll give you three guesses ... no ... make that one, and if you don't get it right go to the BACK of the line. This blog is for people who HAVE a brain and know how to use it.

I say it's because they are seriously deranged, and I do not care if they are good people or bad people, I don't care if they are charitable or not, or whether they help the needy or not. I don't even care if they are NICE. They probably are ... but they are also so deluded that in my opinion every other thought or opinion they have is irrelevant to me because they do not have the reasoning power to separate fact from fiction, truth from non truth. Their judgement is so seriously impaired that it grieves me to see ANYONE of religious faith in ANY position of power.

I long for a world where the extremely religious are NOT perceived as either logical or rational in any sense of the word ... cause ... well ... they AREN'T. A world where those crazies are not awarded ANY credibility on important issues of the day by the more rational general population .... you know .... the same way atheists are treated now.

I know, I know ... it's not going to happen, but it sure would be nice if it did.

Coservatives write Liberalism out of the bible ...

Maybe it's just me but this really caught my funny bone ...

Conservatives rewrite bible to make it less LIBERAL

I guess they aren't feeling very Jesus like these days huh? Maybe it's their LACK of compassion... Maybe it's their HYPOCRISY? ... maybe it's the fact that they want to DENY poor people access to HEALTHCARE? Maybe it's the HATE they spew at their rallies?

I don't know ... but I'm sure rewriting their holy book, you know, the one written by GOD, will make them feel better about themselves.

I'm sure it will work though, nothing like improving the word of god to make you feel better about yourself.
