Latest post of the previous page:

There used to be an organisation that supported atheist soldiers in the US, but that seems to have been disbanded.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Alan, it seems to me that this is just a small local initiative. For example, there is still Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers.

Ah! Thanks, Nick. I was trying to find a website I had seen a few years ago, but couldn't find it.

Having some trouble with the whole theme of let's blame the woman. I mean, for god's sake, she was raped.

Is that deliberate irony Marian? :)

She couldn't have been both raped and a virgin.

Let's not forget we are talking about a fictional character here.

yeah, it was deliberate irony. :) But your comment about rape and being a virgin is interesting. You mean she couldn't have been raped because she was a virgin? :puzzled:

Yes, fictional but don't forget how many people there who actually believe that she was real or if they don't believe it, they certainly believe the idea that women are responsible for most if not all evils in the world. Just feeling my oats tonight. :wink:

No Marian, the other way round, she couldn't have been a virgin after she'd been raped. :)

Huh, it was a space man, big bubble helmet and back pack (looking a bit like wings) with an AID syringe I reckon!

Goodness!
11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

That's very funny Alan C. I rather think it's also an excellent snipe at Westboro Baptist Church too. :thumbsup:
