So much crap out there.

I can hardly believe how much crap gets spouted on a daily basis. We're gearing up for an election sometime before mid-May here in the UK, and as we all cynically know that will cause the bullshit-o-meter to hit the redline. Tories, Labour and Lib-Dems, Oh my!
So there's only a few moments before my brain explodes talking about politics so let's skip to making fun of god-botherers for a minute.
It's 2010 and the Irish have their new blasphemy law; read about it here.
The War at Home: There was a big controversy last week about a group called Islam4UK wanting to make an antiwar protest through a town improbably called Wootton Bassett. Because they've got some dodgy ties, they've made inflammatory statements in the past, and they hold as a basic principle that life is not shit enough for most folks, this caused some controversy. Or con-TROV-ersy. There was a lot of back and forth in the press about whether they should be allowed to have their march. Eventually this turned into a debate over whether they should exist. The answer has come down: No.
This should have been a no-brainer. They're cocks. Repugnant and dismal in their opinions, ideas and existence. But they should be allowed their fruity little club and their fuck-ball opinions. If they're out there in public we can shout them down and even throw the odd egg.
Somewhere along the lines Karen Armstrong and Sam Harris got into a pissing match. Harris is ahead.
And, of course the Russian Orthodox Church and the Vatican are pushing back against their creeping irrelevance.
I guess they want to make the public square safe for dicks like this.

Pat Robertson Calls Quake 'blessing in Disguise'
Isn't he ready for a heart attack or something? He's a personal embodiment for why we need a strong secular movement.
Why would he think he's right about anything. Confirmation bias, perhaps? Partially anyway.
