 "Piss Christ" Vandalized After Christian Protest Against "Blasphemy"
"Piss Christ" Vandalized After Christian Protest Against "Blasphemy"
When New York artist Andres Serrano plunged a plastic crucifix into a glass of his own urine and photographed it in 1987 under the title Piss Christ, he said he was making a statement on the misuse of religion. Controversy has followed the work ever since, but reached an unprecedented peak on Palm Sunday when it was attacked with hammers and destroyed after an "anti-blasphemy" campaign by French Catholic fundamentalists in the southern city of Avignon. picked by B-MoreRavensFan 6 months ago

 The Christian Right Killed the Republican Party
The Christian Right Killed the Republican Party
When Ronald Reagan began courting the religious right in his bid to win the Presidency, I doubt he knew he was spelling death to the lean tenets of Goldwater conservatism. Yet soon afterward, under the thumb of right-wing religion, the Republican party became a bloated fool, stuffed with hypocrisy, greed, and anti-intellectualism. In 2008, the price is being paid through lost elections and a loss ... read full post picked by muppet 3 years ago

 Freedom of Assembly/Speech
Freedom of Assembly/Speech [video]
An excellent vid showing the tactics used by police to disrupt a march in New York against an alleged 'police state'. It is particularly good because it was shot by a Polish Immigrant who had lived under the late Leninist regime and remarked that the US police used exactly the same underhand tactics that the Polish state thugs used to suppress protests there.It certainly begs the question; Americ... read full post picked by Turtle 4 years ago

 Free Speech - Only In America
Free Speech - Only In America
Freedom of Speech is one of America's greatest rights. Sadly it is a very rare freedom. Many countries - even countries you'd expect to be freedom-lovers say no to free speech. Oh you have the right to say nice sweet things, but you can't say anything mean or negative, anything that might hurt a group's feelings.

 Christian Youth ChallengeThe Atheists on YouTube
Christian Youth ChallengeThe Atheists on YouTube
More than a month ago, atheists began to blaspheme the existence of God on the popular YouTube network. Today, Christians are turning the tables and taking up the challenge to stand up to their faith in Jesus Christ publicly. Kind of reminds me of the that cliche scene in the movie when one brave person starts a slow clap, a few more join in, and then the crowd starts to realize who the good guy... read full post picked by kellenheller 5 years ago

Controversial crucifix creates rift at Catholic church
Critics of the crucifix take issue with what appears to be a large penis covering Jesus’ abdominal area. Seeton said the portion of the crucifix in question is meant to be Jesus’ abdomen "showing distension” — not a penis. picked by cecilberman 1 year ago
