Bob Spence, here is an opinion about your heathen lesbian PM,

Make you feel all warm and fuzzy when you think about the sour grapes believers when they aren't driving the car.

http://www.centraltelegraph.com.au/story/2011/02/01/no-time-atheist-pm/

Instead of blasting her, maybe you idiots should ask your all powerful god WHY he carpet bombs everyone even affecting his fans. You'd think an all powerful being could be a little more selective about his targets.

And what is disappointing is that SHE went out of her way to tell believers that she wont use her position to discriminate against believers. Funny how she seems to have more compassion for them than they do for her.

Sad to know they are as crazy as the southern U.S. where I live.
Such magical, superstitious thinking.

Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

I'm pretty sure children

I'm pretty sure children should be beaten over the head with cause and effect and correlation versus causation, from toddlers to doctoral candidates.  It would cut down on so much stupid bullshit.

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.

I like the Prime Minister

I like Prime Minister Julia Gillard already. Just by reading this article.

I am pretty sure that a large majority of Australians are looking at these religious nutjobs and shaking their heads that they are making such wild assertions.

Like ex-minister said, the Bible Belt is filled with nutcases like these.

“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”

It's a legit paper. They just have to quote these morons accurately.

Dear reason, yes! 

 

And the especially so when I read moronic things like this:

Article wrote:

 

A National Prayer Gathering in Federal Parliament was then held on 22 October 2007. 

"Within 24 hours the rains started pouring down in many parts of Australia.

It's the 'within 24 hours' bit that always bugs me. Well why weren't your prayers answered immediately? Does God really need time to act? Or do you give God 1-2 buisiness days to make good on your request? And if there comes no rain, are the clouds on backorder? ugh

Not to mention, "In many parts".  Lol.  

I prayed for rain.  Since it is raining, or will be raining somewhere on this planet within the next 24 hours, my prayers have been answered.  Truly, God works in mysterious ways.

Aha, so this freezing rain shit is your fault. I will be pressing a lawsuit against you and God as co-conspirators causing freezing rain that has caused me financial loss and more importantly, mental distress because I only had one beer left on a day when I am trapped inside.

You have it wrong Brian, prayer caused Katrina. Every good bible thumper knows that GW had a personal relationship with God and asked him to send Katrina to take care of that pesky, immoral bastion of liberalism that was New Orleans. I'm still trying to figure out why Mississippi and Alabama also suffered its wrath since they are good Christian states, it must have been the casinos.

Well, you know, you've got to crack some eggs to make an omelet.  The sacrifice of our noble brothers who drowned horribly for the sake of their neighbors purity will be duly noted.

 

(Hahaha, I had to use the spell-check to remember how to spell omelet!)

Well, if you would get off your heathen ass and recognize that god needs money to be sent to a specific post office box, then you would send it. Then god would be able to afford fedex overnight. Oh wait! That would still be “within 24 hours”. Shit!

You you you, I am tired of your disagreeing with me. The world revolves around ME!

((Note to self: Did I think this, or type it? And also Brian37, "The world revolves around ME, sounds a lot like God)

Um, yea, maybe you are right, gotta give your fans some of that famous "cruel to be kind" "tough love".

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Actually, just following the news reports about record size cyclone "Yasi" crossing the coast of my state of Queensland, winds approaching "hurricane force" near the center. Winds predicted to possibly reach around 300 km/hour (that's about 190 mph).

Since this is about 1000 miles away from where I am, to the north, I am not personally at risk...

Our atheist PM has made the expected noises, but apart from being female and atheist, she is a fairly conventional politician, not terribly exciting. Definitely less impressive than Obama, for all his missteps or perceived over-cautious approach in some areas.

It was more along the lines of a bunch of men saying that the cyclone could be stopped by saying to a woman what can essentially be summarized as "on your knees, bitch!" but thanks anyway.
