Petition from the twitter page of @AcharyaS, to be sent to UN calling for end of blasphemy laws worldwide.

This petition is to be sent to the UN. It is not just to protect atheists but all religious minorities worldwide. Got this link from the @AcharyaS twitter page.

 Weird, the website comes up but not the petition. It worked when I clicked on it in Acharya's twitter page.

Why would anyone waste their time petitioning the UN? The organization is a cesspool of corruption that hasn't had a notable achievement since its conception. 

 

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

The UN reminds me of the IOC and FIFA. It's like... what the fuck? You people are the most corrupt mother fuckers in the world. You make the Catholic Church look good.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Lol.

I'm sure they're deeply moved by our petition though. /s
