''Tripwires.'' Good choice of name it seems. You tripped up badly here.

Still tripping.

you talking about irreverence

no idea how the point of my post escaped your head but I'm not taking the assault against the poor woman lightly, if the British courts aren't competent enough to punish these savages for their actions might as well leave them to the more inhumane Sharia as even that would punish them more appropriately, that's the sarcastic point I made and it doesn't mean that I believe flogging for drinking alcohol is a just punishment or that I think it's more significant than gang assaulting a helpless girl, seems that's too much for you to figure out on your own

The judge is allowing religion to be used as an excuse to hurt people without consequence.

There's nothing special about religion, it's just another set of man made laws but because belief of god's involved it's called religion.

This one escaped my notice. I knew you were being irreverent, but I was not sure if your statement about Sharia law coming down hard on people who drink, but looking the other way when people beat up women might have some truth.

If I had used the term ''sarcastic'' instead of ''irreverent'' maybe the misunderstanding would not have occurred.

Default Re: Another Reason Why Religion Is A Joke!

the story is being misinterpreted which isn't surprising because the trashy right win press has deliberately misled people with the headlines (helped by the pussy left wing press pretending the incident never happened)

There is no evidence the judge took the "not used to alcohol" bollocks into account. That was an argument used by the shameless defence team. Good fodder for the press but ultimately irrelevant.

This story doesn't make it more of a joke, or less of a joke. Religion is a joke anyway. Always has, always will be.
