3. What I don't get is why Fundies hate Islam?
I know Bible-thumpers who'd agree with this.

7. And stupid ass Americans
keep saying how little crime we'd have if we were only like Saudi Arabia! Yes, that is the kind of society I would like to live in. Why compare ourselves to Denmark, say, when there's good ole Saudi Arabya.

Beheaded for Ganja? and these are the Regimes that our 'Oh so moral Bush and his warmongers keep.
It makes me feel good I am not a believer.
Religion,so far as I am concerned overall,has proven to be a hinderance for humans to love and respect each other,and also looks to me that it will be the downfall for the universe as we know it,and the end of us all.

All the non believers in the world from begining of time,could have never done 00.5% of the death,destruction,pain and misery that religion has caused mankind in this world.

12. Whose rule is it anyway that marijuana should be illegal?
Didn't God (Allah) say he gave man every herb-bearing plant to be used?

Marijuana is illegal, yet prescription drugs that can cause much more damage to the user is legal. Another area where the rich oligarchy gets to have all the pleasure while anything that even occurs naturally that might give some pleasure to the peons is made illegal. If it weren't for the fact that so many 'fat cats' were alcoholics, we would still have prohibition.

19. Some news organization with cojones ought to...
....get videotape the next time they do a multiple execution and broadcast it....

many would endorse it, of course, and contend that the U.S. ought to do the same thing....but i think more would be horrified and start questioning our relationship with that bloody family-run fiefdom...

22. Wow, they're catching up to Bush's record in Texas
Geez, how many people did that idiot kill while he was governor in Texas. It's funny how they forget about the 10 Commandments when it comes to stuff like Capital Punishment
