United States CIA Tortured Terrorists To *Help* Them, With Their Religion:

Scotland Church of Scotland’s official magazine criticises those who use the Bible as excuse for homophobia:

United Kingdom Devout Christian Virgin lands lap dancing club job:
Two antlers up
“The 26-year-old believes his £35,000-a-year salary at Secrets in central London will help him provide for a family one day.”

Assuming that this story is true, Moose is giving Dave Dragas 2 ANTLERS UP!

It seems to Moose that Dave is just practicing his beliefs and not trying to push them on others.

Canada Macleans “disturbing new poll” :sign says Behead Those That Insult Islam

This “disturbing new poll” basically reveals that… millions of Canadians think exactly like I do, just as they have for generations, and still do outside places like Toronto and Vancouver.

For example, here are some of the “disturbing” findings:
* 45% believe that mainstream Islam encourages violence. Oddly enough! Not sure where folks get that idea… * 26% believe Sikhism encourages violence. I think that’s pretty low, considering all male Sikhs claim it is their religious duty to carry knives. Oh, and then there’s this… * 62% think “laws and norms should NOT be modified to accommodate minorities.”

Rhode Island Student Infiltrates Christian University To Write Book:

Kevin Roose managed to blend in during his single semester at Liberty University, attending lectures on the myth of evolution and the sin of homosexuality, and joining fellow students on a mission trip to evangelize partyers on spring break.

Roose had transferred to the Virginia campus from Brown University in Providence, a famously liberal member of the Ivy League. His Liberty classmates knew about the switch, but he kept something more important hidden: He planned to write a book about his experience at the school founded by fundamentalist preacher Jerry Falwell.

Pam Fleming with light saberScotland Force is strong for Jedi police:

“Eight police officers serving with Scotland’s largest force listed their official religion as Jedi in voluntary diversity forms, it has emerged”.

About 390,000 people listed their religion as Jedi in the 2001 Census for England and Wales. In Scotland the figure was a reported 14,000.

The Office for National Statistics did not recognise it as a separate category, and incorporated followers of Jedi with atheists.

Last year, brothers Barney and Daniel Jones founded the UK Church of the Jedi – which offered sermons on the Force, light sabre training, and meditation techniques.

According to Pam Fleming, the first Jedi police officer to admit she is a devotee of the Star Wars-inspired religion, “Being a Jedi is a way of life. The faith is not divisive. It does not matter what your race, faith or sexual orientation is – you can be one. It is all encompassing”.
