Dark ages

Malaysia’s prime minister delivered a chilling anti-semitic speech on an Islamic summit; here a couple of ‘highlights’:

“They [the Jews] invented socialism, communism, human rights and democracy, so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong, so that they can enjoy equal rights with others. With these they have gained control of the most powerful countries and they, this tiny community, have become a world power. We cannot fight them through brawn alone, we must use our brains also.”

Besides manifesting himself as a complete and utter moron, he does make half of a point: thinking and religion are not compatible.
More bleak religion news: some results of this poll are quite disturbing (in case the results are to be trusted). Take for instance this line:
“More than 60% of American born-again Christians, American Catholics and Korean Christians, more than 80% of Peruvian Catholics and Hindus, and over 95% of all Muslims surveyed say they will suffer negative consequences if they disobey their religion. ”
Or, these particular idiots won’t even dare start thinking for themselves (btw, our fearless leader, president Shrub, is a born-again Christian – not sure if he belongs to the 60%, but I think I’m up for a bet). It’s like being in the Dark Ages once again and hence it’s high time for a second Aufklaring: smart people all over the world should stand up and speak out agains the irrationality and insanity of religion and the army of fundamentalists it never ceases to spawn! These guys make an effort…
Finally, it would be ridiculous if it wasn’t so depressingly real: see what these nutcases in Wyoming are up to.
